    There are some conversational style SQL Server related podcasts where the host interviews a different professional in each show.

    Stuff by Kevin Kline, Brent Ozar, and Paul Randal are great.

    There is also an ocean of material on YouTube. You can also use 'YTD Video Downloader' to download the audio track of videos as MP3 files.

    Thanks for the list of resources. I'll check them out.

    Specifically I am looking for stuff I can listen to while driving, mowing the lawn, putting the dishes away, etc.

    I'll definitely post the list on my SQL Server wiki

    Pluralsight can, they're videos only, but I've listened to several courses during commute with the iPad out of sight and I can get most of the material being discussed from just the audio. A lot of the iTunesU stuff is audio only, or the same as Pluralsight, can be understood without needing the video.

    Coursara not so much. There are assignments and code projects in all the courses I've so far done with them, so that's far more something that needs dedicated study time.

    Khan Academy has good math courses. All the way through DiffEq. It's actually pretty fun and if you have HS age kids it helps you help them with their homework.

    Thanks,

    All those topics is something that I used to study on faculty, but implementation in practice is going slowly 🙂

    I'm sure there are some new materials there as well.
