I removed the Podcasts page on the website the other day. It basically wasn’t anything I had time to keep live and relevant and was a waste of menu and page. A shame but time is limIted, ain’t it?

It had comments and links to some of my favourite podcasts like ‘13 Minutes to the Moon’, ‘Sodajerker’ and ‘NYT The Book Review’. These are still very much in my regular listening - apart from 13 Minutes to the Moon once I finished it.

The podcasts I regularly listen to and/or recommend anyway, are:

  • The Book Review (New York Times) - weekly discussion on books.
  • The Infinite Monkey Cage - science programme from Brian Cox & Robin Ince and guests
  • The Curious Cases of Rutherford & Fry - another great science programme from Adam Rutherford and Hannah Fry 
  • Sodajerker - interviews and discussions with songwriters 
  • That Peter Crouch Podcast - funny look at footy, footballers lives and all sorts of shit (with occasional swearing)  
  • The Football Daily - as it says on the tin. From Radio5
  • 13 Minutes to the Moon - awesome documentary on the first manned moon landing.
  • Tunnel 29 - documentary on a tunnel beneath the Berlin Wall
  • The Art of Process - with Aimee Mann - discussions with arty peeps about how they work
  • Blank - gentle discussions with creatives
  • No Such Thing As A Fish - chat with fun ‘facts’ from the QI crew. Always fun
  • Forest 404 - nice story with a great vibe
  • The Archers Omnibus - hey it’s the Archers!

And this week I’ve discovered a new one to me, which has been going a long time (over sixty episodes to catch up on), called:
Something Rhymes With Purple - presented by Gyles Brandreth and Susie Dent. All about word origins. 

All in all there’s a lot of listening there for when you’re out and about. Or travelling. Maybe even commuting... it is coming back isn’t it?
