:this: except it was a tube train carriage rather than a jury waiting room, and there weren't any quiet corners. I listened to the end of the same podcast the next day, only to hear them giving tips on how to cope with such public mirth situations, which was frankly a bit late.

Mentioned this in another thread but Iain Banks' Transition is a great podcast.

Richard Herring has a new comedy podcast, "As it occurs to me". I haven't heard it yet but it's supposed to be more comedic and less random than the Collings and Herrin podcast. I'm mainly posting this to make me remember to subscribe to it when I get home.

I'm enjoying aye-eye-ottumah as Mr Herring seems to insist on calling it. I think it's a really interesting model for producing a show - I hope it does really well, but I gather he's having trouble getting enough of an audience for the live show to make it worthwhile, which is a bit of a shame. It'd be good to see this sort of thing flourish as an alternative to the traditional radio model of comedy shows. I just hope he's got the stamina and finances to keep it up for the ten weeks he promised...

I'm subscribed to:

The Archers
The Archers Omnibus
History of the World in 100 Objects
Radio 4 Friday night Comedy
The Times's "The Game" Podcast

Anything else I should get? Preferably, ones which are divisible by 30 minutes as that's the time it takes me to drive to college and back and a 15 minute one for te park and ride bus there and back/cycling time.

Thanks.

Has anyone recommended This American Life? It's brilliant. It feels - and this is intended to be high praise - like something the BBC would do when it's firing on all cylinders.

Hey I do a podcast now! I'm not entirely sure I'd recommend it though. It's usually about games and films. And some other waffle as well. I think part 2 of the most recent one is about the best we've done so if you listen to that and don't like it then we're probably not worth bothering with.

Other podcasts that are quite good:

Skeptic's Guide to the Universe - http://www.theskepticsguide.org/
Skeptoid as well.

Old thread , but probably most appropriate to point out the last 2 Nerdist Podcasts are :

Patrick Stewart (for all those playing TNG Scum)

http://www.nerdist.com/2011/09/nerdist- ... k-stewart/

And Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)

I'm getting more into podcasts now.

It used to just be Gervais.
Then I added Football Weekly.

Now I listen to The Whistleblowers (Mark Webster's footy podcast), Footballistically Arsenal (I'm not an Arsenal fan, but I find them interesting, and it's from the same lot as Whistleblowers), WTF with Marc Maron (comedian. I first got into him recently, when he got a really good interview out of Andrew 'Dice' Clay, and he is generally good).

Oh noes...News International have (probably understandably) decided to withdraw funding from The Bugle...there's only a couple of Year in Reviews and then that's it unless they get some funding.

Time for John Oliver to tap up John Stewart and get some of that Comedy Central cash.

Salzman has stated that withdrawal of funds has nothing to do with them tearing NI a new arse over phone hacking. I'm not so sure.

Answer Me This is roughly my favourite podcast in podcastland. It's not always laugh-out-loud funny but it's such a nice way to pass half an hour a week, like hanging out with a small group of bright, witty people that you really like. Most of the other stuff I listen to is connected to my weird niche-y interests like boardgaming and Yankee Helmetball so I'd hesitate to recommend them to most people. Other folk have mentioned This American Life, the Grauniad Football Weekly and the Skeptic's Guide, anyway.

If you can, listen to "This American Life" episode #323 called "The Super". There's an absolutely amazing couple of stories on there, which I really enjoyed. The first of which begins in New York in the 1980s, the second begins with a chat at a petrol station.

If you like Richard Herring, you should probably listen to his Me1 vs Me2 snooker podcasts.

One of the more recent Nerdist podcasts http://www.nerdist.com/2012/01/nerdist- ... e-from-dc/ has (at the very end) Ellen McLain and her husband and they performed the ending songs for both Portal 2 and Portal



There is a bit of feedback in the video (about the 1:30 mark) which you need to watch out for -its loud!

I haven't got iTunes. I have got a PC and an Android phone. I wonder what people in my position do podcast wise? Are we supposed to download them for listening later or do people stream? What software do people use? I installed Google Listen but it doesn't really seem to do anything. It's all very confusing. I'm still not sure whether it's just mp3s of people talking or what. What's the difference between listening to something radioish on BBC iplayer and listening to a podcast of the same?

In the dim and distant past i used Juice (http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/index.php) , however when i got an ipod I gave up and moved over to Itunes.

Streaming vs downloading really depends where your going to listen , I do most of my podcast listening in the car so i may not have a good enough internet signal to stream.

The other disadvantage of just relying on iplayer is that they do not keep things up 'forever' so if you stumble across something you really like you would typically only get the last few (whereas with podcasts you can generally go back years or to the very start)

Hello! Is there anything like "This American Life" that isn't "planet Money"?

Private Eye has started a Podcast

http://www.private-eye.co.uk/eyeplayer/podcast

Interesting coverage of how News International threw all it's informants and a number of their journos under the bus.

Comedy of the week from the Beeb. Just the other week they had this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01rl708. Mark Thomas; I don't love everything he does, but my, that is one powerful hour. Better not to know much about it, I think - don't read the description on the site, just listen to it. If you've hated what he has done before I think it's worth a go - this is not a political or grand shaming type of deal.
