So I am curious, what do other mustachians do to get workout music? Do you use ipods?

I don't usually listen to music while working out, but when I do, Pandora comes to the rescue.  Either that or some CD I have lying around.

I like Podrunner, available for free via iTunes or: http://www.djsteveboy.com/podrunner.html

They're long so you don't have to fuss around with individual songs.  They also come in a nice variety of beats per minute.

FM Radio
Pandora
Podcasts

I recently dumped my subscriptions to just about everything, one that included Google Music which I thought was a great deal because if you subscribed the month it was launched, you'd be locked in lifetime at a few dollars less. Hah.

I generally have audiobooks that I listen to. I do have a membership with Audible, but there are plenty of good books at the library that I will also use. Not sure about the legality, but I would be interested in uploading them and then combining them, anyone know if this is legal?

Spotify with a 7" screen device. I can stream whatever I want over my home WiFi and only have to listen to the rare commercial.

i really enjoy my spotify account, it has tons of playlists for all types of moods or types of activities or you have access to any song you want to make your own playlists.

I also enjoy my fair share of podcasts for an easy work out that i can actually listen during.
  Financial Independance Podcast (Mad Fientist)
  The Dough Roller
  Freakenomics
  You are not so smart podcast.

You can see what your local library has in the way of c/d's, then import them into your digital library.
