Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster

Very funny podcast where guests pick their dream meal course by course.

How Did This Get Played? Episode 23 - Custer’s Revenge

In which a (usually) lightly comedic videogame podcast, this episode discussing the horribly offensive Atari 2600 game Custer’s Revenge, gets completely (and rightfully) derailed when the guest, comedy writer Joey Clift, confronts the hosts regarding the entire premise of the episode, and then from there expands into a far more interesting, illuminating - and occasionally uncomfortable - discussion about representation and tokenisation.

Good recommendation there. I've just gotten around to listening to it and it is indeed uncomfortable. Fair play to the hosts for acknowledging what they'd done and apologising for it.

Yeah - respect to them for going through with the episode, and then putting it out.

I've recently started listening to a podcast called The Dollop. It's one of those shows where you need to scrub through about 10 minutes of ads and plugs to get to the actual content, but it's well worth it. The recent Ronald Reagan 2 parter they did with Patton Oswalt was absolutely hilarious, but also quite shocking - he was just a face on a TV screen (and Strontium Dog cameo star) to me growing up - I honestly never realised what a monster he was. Trump is really nothing new with regards to the Republican Party, eh? The only difference is that he uses a bullhorn instead of a dog whistle.

Finally got around to listening to West Cork. What an absolute mess from start to finish (the subject material not the podcast. Well worth a listen.

Also recommend this : https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07nkd84/episodes/downloads

Both cases ongoing.

The whole concept of Bitcoin eluded me until I listened to this show. The bit where the reporter tried explaining the concept to his mum, had me laughing and feeling old in equal measure.

Have added West Cork to my growing list.

Struck by an overwhelming wave of saudade, wistfully pining for the Sean Hughes podcast there never was - then Googled it and found it exists! Commute sorted for next week.

Same! Thought he did a great job of explaining it.
