CNET’s Buzz Out Loud celebrates its 1000th episode on June 18 (both CNET and TechRepublic are owned by CBS). Since I’m a regular BOL listener and depend on the show for a daily roundup of the top news stories in tech, I wanted to do a little something to honor the occasion.

So, in typical TechRepublic fashion, I’ve put together a list of the top five things that make Buzz Out Loud the best tech news podcast on the Web. And in the one-minute video clip below, I count them down.

To watch a live airing  of the 1000th BOL episode, tune in to at 10:30 AM Pacific / 1:30 PM Eastern on Thursday. It will feature regular BOL hosts and guests including Tom Merritt, Molly Wood, Natali Del Conte, Brian Cooley, Rafe Needleman, and Brian Tong. It will also feature former BOL host Veronica Belmont and former TechTV star Leo Laporte. If you can’t make it to the 1000th episode live, you can also get it on-demand at afterward.
