Recommend me a podcast
 
My commute to work takes about an hour, and frankly I am getting a little bored of the same music.

Any ideas on a good podcast/podcasts to listen to? My commute is on a dedicated cycle track so I can safely listen to it.

Any subject is welcome, maybe something to get me thinking!

I have tried some from the BBC, but they are mostly 30 mins long, and if I am honest do get a little boring.

Sound quality is also important, although I know that with podcasts this can vary greatly.

many thanks in anticipation............

Kermode and Mayo?

plinth 14th March 2011 11:24

Why not try some free, serialised audiobook novels from Podiobooks.com?

Void 14th March 2011 11:24

+1

Also PRI selected shorts are pretty good. (All are short stories, the Moth ones are normally quite humourous.)

Void 14th March 2011 11:42

One of the best podcasts I've ever heard was The Moth episode with Steve Osborne - Walk Like A Cop, Talk Like A Cop, he's a NYPD officer with 20 years on the street.

Best podcast ever was This American Life - The Break Up, heard it the week before my wife and I finally parted company as we were going through a divorce. Bittersweet shit...

Ste_S 14th March 2011 15:24

Ned Boulting/Matt Rendall's Real Peloton is the best pro-cycling podcast out there. Often shambolic, but all the better for it.

FLaP 14th March 2011 15:35

some good recomendations that I will have to research, thanks. Ste_S, where can I find that? I also listen to the Two Johns podcast (about bikes) which took a few listens but now I really like.

FLaP 14th March 2011 15:39

Found it and downloaded one for a trial...

spagettihoops 14th March 2011 15:40

Jay & Silent Bob get old... the first 6 or 7 episodes are great... after that it's just dick & fart jokes.

The Tom Green Podcast is good.... especially the one with Bobcat Goldthwait.

I'm also a fan of Bill Burr's Monday Morning podcast.

FLaP 14th March 2011 15:46

Got the Jay and Silent Bob podcast, yeah agree that after the first couple it just got silly.........

_dan_ 14th March 2011 16:02

Guardian football and tech podcasts are great

Radio 4 friday night comedy podcast is also amazing

^ fuck off. In Our Time is awesome. And Melvin's undertone of frustration with at least one of his guests any given week keeps me on edge week.

And comedy podcasts keep me up when I listen to them while going to bed.

An audio version of the football thread. Some proper jokes to be had there.

Plastic Pedals 8th September 2011 06:01

Try story books

Sherlock holmes is a good one

Hah. Irony there that possibly didn't come across. I do listent to it when I get a chance, at so I can't dislike it that much.

That says pancake day, but if you play it, it has 'Melvyn Bragg' in it.


Alkali 8th September 2011 07:28

'stuff you should know' free downloads from itunes are quite interesting, sometimes comical US podcasts. Mainly around 20 minutes long each.

Mulligan and O'hare Pancake Day - YouTube

Yeah, I figured. Still had to get Melvin's back. Even though I suspect he's a right cock in real life. I just respect what he does as a public intellectual. We don't really have those in Canada (to the same degree). So the likes of him and Laurie Taylor (and whoever it is that puts them on air) are gold-star heroes, in my book.

Brian Cox, on the other hand, can piss off. He creeps the fuck out of me.

has this been retuned yet?

Eightball 8th September 2011 10:55

I don't think we are on the same wavelength

dicki 8th September 2011 11:00

there was a really nice spoken word piece by scroobius pip on a week or two back on radio 4 late night 11.15 or so definately worth a listen

he is allegedly now one of britains formost spoken wordsmiths according to radio 4 and his albums aren't bad neither

Search for Carl Sagan in iTunes, there's a couple of podcasts in tribute to him I've got queued up.

dooks 8th September 2011 13:01

I subscribe to Richard Herring's "warming up" which is just him reading his daily blog. it's dull at the moment though as he's on holiday after Edinburgh. "As it occurs to me", his unedited weekely stand up and sketch show (written, rehearsed and performed in 48 hours every week) was hit and miss (and very VERY crude) but when it hit it was great. It's a total birds nest of self referntial call backs though so if you don't listen from the beginning you'll probably be totally lost. I recently did the whole three (?) series pretty much back to back. It's fun to hear Richard Herring mentally unravel as the series progresses too. (aside: it isn't)

The audio version of this story by the BBC's Moscow Correspondent Steve Rosenburg, recorded on the 'elektrichka' train to Petushki is a brilliantly evocative portrait of Putin's Russia in 2012.

Audio journalism at its best - I first heard it on Broadcasting House on Sunday and had to go back and listen to it again (just follow the link then scroll down the page to the box and press play):

On a comedy tip:

The Bugle - Andy Zaltsman and John Oliver giggling at each other for an hour (better than it sounds)
Adam & Joe - on 6music and XFM although you'll need to trawl the archives to find them

Elsewhere, the Desert Island Discs archive is now available so you can choose your presenter and subject, and avoid all the crap you don't like. Endless autobiographical joy

i only listen to 2 podcasts.
The Complete Guide To Everything (comedy, 2 guys chatting shit for an hour, love it) Generally an hour long, decent back catalogue to get you through a few weeks

Stuff You Should Know (2 guys educating you on whatever the subject matter of the week is) range in length from 20mins to over an hour.

99% Invisible - architecture, sort of, for people who aren't architects. A lot of it is really economics though. In the same vein as This American Life, Planet Money, Radio Lab.

Answer Me This - Sony Radio Award winning podcast. Two friends answering questions in a jovial manner, one of which is the sister of Andy Zaltzman (of The Bugle and Daily Show fame).

Freakonomics Radio - spin off radio show by the guys who wrote the pretty famous odd ball economics book of the same name.
