Thanks for these.
I only recently discovered 'No such thing as a fish'. Done by some people who do research for QI, the format is quite simple: there are four facts each week that start off the discussions. It's very, very funny.

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.


Just beautiful...don't listen in a dusty room.

Just started listening to 'Talk Salad and Scrambled Eggs'.

Matt Mira and Kevin Smith's lovefest for 'Frasier' and other 90s stuff. Sometimes they even talk about the good doctor and co. The 'pilot', episode 000, is worth listing to just to remind you how awesome 'Frasier' was.

Wasn't it "tossed salad and scrambled eggs"?

Yes. And they changed it to Talk because they talk about Frasier.

It's actually a pretty clever theme song, because it describes what the show is about (sort of) while mostly sounding like a random collection of words.

I just finished Serial - http://serialpodcast.org/

Investigate journalist looks into a cold case from 15 years ago and the detail surrounding the case is like something out of CSI only even more convoluted and without a magic maguffin to tie everything up neatly. Appeal is still ongoing but it's quite reminiscent of the West Memphis Three with a lot of the case resting on a perception of the accused rather than actual facts.

13 episodes and well worth a listen.

Ditto. The 'follow up' (by different people - an interested group of lawyers) Undisclosed: The state vs Adnan Syed is much less storified and is more dry, but is probably excellent if you're really really into the legalities of it all.

Agree. This is generally very good.
I also recommend...
StarTalk Radio. Neil DeGrasse Tyson does pop science and astrophysics. Usually has a comedian co-hosting and frequently has great guests.
No Such Thing As A Fish.
Tech Weekly and Science Weekly from the Guardian
The Infinite Monkey Cage, on occasionally for brief runs, Prof Brian Cox and Robin Ince co-host a usually humorous panel discussion on science topics
The Life Scientific. Jim Al Khalili talks to eminent scientists.
Kermode and Mayo's Film Review. This is the podcast of their Friday afternoon Radio 5 live show.
The Empire Podcast. Films, film news, reviews, guests, every Friday.
Richard Herring is back at the Leicester Sq theatre doing podcasts again. If you like Herring you should like this.

Whilst the show's 'everything-but-Frasier' chat can be grating at times (I find myself skipping bits), I'm still enjoying this. It's kind of like having friends round to watch a TV programme and you spend the time talking about everything but the action. One for whiling away empty hours.

However, the most recent, episode 13, has a two-hour conversation with Peri Gilpin. No ground-breaking revelations, but wonderful to listen to her voice.

I think I couldn't get over the fact that it wasn't a sequel to the first series, which was EXCELLENT.

Will give it another listen. Exercise bike is arriving today so will need some exercise podcasts :D

Although it started in 2010 I've just started listening to The Rex Factor. It's a humorous romp through all the English (series 1) and Scottish (series 2) monarchs scoring them, Top Trump-style, on key factors like 'battleliness', 'scandal', and 'subjectivity' (would you want to have been their subject?), before a decision on whether they held the elusive 'Rex Factor'.

Only heard the introductory episode and the first proper podcast on Alfred the Great but already I'm hooked - people talking and joking about history always appeals, even if the sound quality is a bit poor. Only another 50 or so to get through to Liz the Second.

Listening to Limetown. It's presented as a podcast, but it's a drama. It's obviously based on Serial, even to the extent that the narrator sounds a lot like Sarah Koenig. A bit cheesy, but well put together and compelling. Also, it has a moment that startled me so much, I nearly drove off the road! Recommended

I have finished Serial. I loved the two series.

Any recommendations for stories. Sci-fi and fantasy.

I have done the whole Scott Siglar back catalogue, and the showdow publication series.

If you like football, or silliness, or both, then I recommend Athletico Mince from Bob Mortimer and the fellow who runs the 'Get in the Sea' Twitter account (Andy Dawson).

Around a decade ago I used to listen to Escape Pod. It might still exist.

It does! http://escapepod.org/

Proper funny. I am snorting away with laughter on the train.

"... said Donna."
"Donna? Who the fuck is Donna?"
"Oh god, he means 'Bella'."
"Oh dad."

I thought I recognised the woman's voice - it's Alice Levine off Radio 1.
