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/

for the fans of RHLSTP (rhlstp) Richard Herring has a new podcast STONE CLEARING WITH RICHARD HERRING as he undertakes his secret mission to clear a field of all it's stones whilst walking Wolfie the dog

Also for Marvel/ Wolverine fans there is a 10 part series WOLVERINE THE LOST TRAIL Logan (Richard Armitage) returns to New Orleans in search of redemption, only to discover that his ex-lover, Maureen is nowhere to be found. And she's not the only one.

Listened to Caliphate, a ten part series about ISIS constructing their own state, and also the story of a Canadian citizen who was radicalised by online propaganda. Astonishing stuff to listen to.

Equal parts gruesome, terrifying and hilarious.

When you realise the great damage that can be done, the misinformation of social media, it really is terrifying.

My current (non-comics) listening habits:

Beautiful/Anonymous - a weekly hour-long chat with a different anonymous stranger. This is an incredible podcast.

RISK! - live storytelling, but of the kind you'd only usually tell your therapist.

Dr. Gameshow - they play listener-submitted games with guests, often descends into lunacy. Hilarious and creative.

RadioLab - mini radio documentaries that regularly blow my mind.

The Dollop - American history, often focusing on the absurd. Often manages to be funny and depressing at the same time.

Savage Lovecast - Dan Savage's sex and love advice podcast.

For the longest time my top favourite was 'You Made It Weird', which I still listen to, but it's flagged a bit over the last year or two. Still some amazing episodes in the archives though.

I thought it peaked a bit early but I really enjoyed S-Town, too.

I'm definitely going to try out some of these suggestions as I'm getting bored with my regular subs, such as:

Hoovering - food-based chat with comedian Jessica Fostecew interviewing guests about their culinary upbringing, eating hang-ups, favourite foods etc - fun, but all the guests tend to be middle-class North London liberal vegan comedians, so it gets a bit samey - notable exceptions are the woman who wrote a book about living off roadkill

How did this get made? sometimes studio based and sometimes live, they take the piss out of terrible movies in detail - I thought I'd like this, but the episodes are overly long and the panel are too annoying - the one on Judge Dredd was more about how stupid they found the judge system than actual flaws in the movie

No such thing as a Fish - amusing trivia from the researchers behind QI

also, the Radio 4* comedy of the Week & Friday Night Comedy (not really podcasts, just R4 comedies on regular subscription) RHLSTP, Spacespinner2000, Drokk, Where Eagles Dare, My Dad Wrote a Porno (if it ever comes back)  and the thrillcast (which I get but rarely listen to)


Re: Radio 4 downloads - the new BBC Sounds app, which they are promoting mercilessly, is shit - feedback has forced them to postpone plans to phase out the iPlayer Radio app, which is much more user-friendly

I could never get into HDIGM? The Flop House is my preferred bad movie podcast.

I've only seen him on panel shows but he usually gets a laugh or two out of me.

I went to Hinterlands last year, lovely bar, lovely staff, lovely owner patiently indulging me. Great beer too.

I’m really enjoying ‘Films to be Buried With...’ with Brett Goldstein. He gets a different celeb guest each week and he tells them they’ve died. Heaven exists and in it, everyone is obsessed with film. The guests then have to talk about their life through memorable films e.g. first film they saw, which film means the most to them, which film has made them cry the most, sexiest film and so on.

Goldstein is a great host, he seems a really nice guy and seems to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of film. Well worth your time!
