I currently listen to 'Remainiacs', mostly for Ian Dunt's swearing. Will have to give Brexitcast a go.

That was excellent, he comes across very well (...and his choice of the Beethoven piece would be the exact reason I'd pick it as well).

I would also implore you to listen to Sunday's I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue just for the game based on providing punchlines to jokes written by children...it cracked me up.

As in Sunday 10th?


Yes

I enjoyed Mr Hardy's latest show on the Home Service last night, although he seems to be mellowing these days. The bit at the end felt like unnecessary filler, but that's only two minutes and not too detrimental to the act.

I'm sure you're all already listening to John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme on the iPlayer because it's fucking hilarious, but a heads-up that the currently available Christmas episode has some particularly good skewering of Brexit/Tory voters using that old metaphor of 'turkeys voting for Christmas'. I mean, it's all very funny but that stuff in particular is a highlight.

I listened to most of it last night while cleaning but don't remember that one so presumably I've got it to look forward to whenever I finish it off.

I enjoyed it. Genuinely sinister at times. Though I did my usual thing of having to look up the real person on the internet, as I had a set picture in my mind of what he looked like (Coach from FNL [he did not look like him])

I'm of the opinion it's better than the Serials and S-Town, as they all petered out at the end.

This very much does not.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Hexagonal Phase

Finally listened to this, but feelings are mixed. It had its moments, and I really enjoyed some of the jokes and cameos (especially the voice of the Guide Mark II), but ultimately felt it was lacking the freshness and charm of the original. It's more like rather good fan fiction. Glad to have it and to be with the characters again, but yet still feeling it's almost, but not entirely, unlike the ones written by Douglas Adams himself.

Yes, I felt similarly. After just the first episode, that was on comedy of the week. Bits of it were fine, bits of it sort of in the style of but missing the mark.

I've probably given more thought on who to vote for in the 'Rex Factor' semis and grand final than any other major decision so far this year. Of course, the winner has to be:

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
James IV.

I found Mary, Queen of Scots, a really fascinating person and someone I'd like to learn more about, given that I'd only really known her as someone who pops up during Liz the First's reign to have a head cut off. But sadly she doesn't really achieve anything as Queen and when we're playing in the higher leagues you need to have something substantial.

Robert the Bruce is clearly the most memorable - very much as recognisable as Henry VIII. And this works against him for this competition because we should be celebrating the lesser known. Being awesome with a sword, usurping the throne, and guaranteeing Scotland's independence are all good things, but would I want to live under him?

Constantine deserves recognition by being able to retire and die a natural death: an outstanding achievement for a Scottish ruler. He did create the modern Scotland and survive Banockburn so these are in his favour.

But James IV! What a guy! Golden age, a navy, the judgements the dentistry, all adds up to an excellent ruler. And all destroyed in one great epic charge.

I think Mary is a fascinating "what might have been". A few people dying in a different order, and she could have ended up with a son inheriting the thrones of France, England and Scotland.

Anyone else on to 'This sounds serious'? True crime, but comical, too. Wasn't sure about episode 1 - too much cheese - but by episode 3, and the names, and the cult...

I have listened to my first 'Podcast' in the last couple of days. A podcast is like the radio used to be except it's as if you've recorded the radio onto a C-90 cassette tape and then listen to the radio at a time of your choosing, and instead of a tape you can listen to the radio show using wireless Bluetooth technology in your car and it plays the show through your cars speakers and it is magic and it shows the name of what you are listening to on your car's infotainment screen.

The first podcast I listened to is Adam Buxton and he was chatting to Charlie Brooker. Trousers recommended it to me and nagged me to purchase 'Pocket Casts' for my phone at a cost of £2.99.

When I listened to it, I felt as if they were in the car with me and I was listening to their conversation. It was friendly and pleasant and I liked it, it is a fine accompaniment for the drive to and from work.

I will listen to more podcasts in future because I think they are good.

D&D is for Nerds has been very entertaining. I don't know why, but the British-sounding guy that came in for the Side-Quests reminds me heavily of JBR.
