Unregistered Podcast with Thaddeus Russel. Some fascinating interviews with all kinds of interesting people. Episode 2: Maggie McNeill, for example, is an interview with a self-described whore and sex workers' activist that expanded my understanding of this industry and the people who work in it and demolished some of my misconceptions (no pun intended).

Sean Carrol's Mindscape Podcast. More fascinating interviews, this time more with experts on academic subjects like biology, quantum mechanics and cognitive dissonance. I used to love the BBC's Horizon programme before it descended into a simple, almost primary school mode - I liked it better when it was deeper. This podcast goes a long way towards plugging that gap.

The only podcast I wouldn't recommend it Shit Town - please don't waste 8 hours of your life on this.

Hear bloody hear. Christ that was annoying.

It's such a shame because it could have been SO good but they completely lost their objectivity.

Lately I have been listening to Dead Rock Stars - two music journalists spend up to an hour discussing the life and death of some of our most loved musicians (Lemmy, Bowie, Lennon, Elvis etc). They are both really knowledgeable about music but one of the journalists (Mick Wall) had been around for quite some time and has some really amazing first hand stories about the subjects. There are only about 20 episodes online though which is the only downside: https://play.acast.com/s/deadrockstars

Also LOVING swindled. It's just one guy telling the story of various cons, heists, crimes and other nefarious goings on : http://swindledpodcast.com/
