A thread in one place for all aficionados of the podcast genre.

There are hundreds out there of note, and it's difficult to wade through them all so I'm posting a few here to see if the suggestions can stack up as with the TV based content threads.

I'll kick off with this new one that I've just found out about which sounds right up my street.

Welsh music journalist Simon Price and friends dissect entire episodes of Top Of The Pops going back decades:

The incredible stories behind the Apollo missions to The Moon. Contains original and new interviews, recordings from Mission Control and the access makes you feel like you're riding in the spaceship with them at times:

Anyone ever listen to/have recommendations for true crime podcasts? Or something to listen to while out walking the dog?
My mate highly recommends the one about Lynette White - can't remember what it's called sorry but someone here will :thumbup:

Talking of podcasts, I think it would be a really good idea to have some kind of link between this forum and one of the City podcasts, either The View from the Ninian or A Bit of Swazz. You could post links and clips to them on here, while they could mention the forum and maybe be allowed to quote directly off here, and do things like fan polls, competitions, questions for guests, advertising merchandise etc etc

That’s “Shreds” by Ceri dawn jackson. Incredible piece of work.

I like the Peter Crouch podcast.
Used to also like Blakey’s boot roo, which has been replaced by “A bit of Swazz” , I’ve tried, but not really my thing.

Quite like Desert Island Disks if it’s someone I’m interested in

One called "Criminal" used to be really good in the early days.

Last Podcast on the Left can be really good. It can also be a stomach churner. The Albert Fish story left me feeling really ill.

The one I listen to regularly and recommend are:
Undr the Cosh
The Peter Crouch Podcast
A Bit of Swazz
View from the Ninian
The Socially Distant Sports Bar
The Joe Rogan Experience

Ones to avoid:
The Harry Redknapp Show - more about Harry than the guests.
Robbie Fowler Podcast - very Liverpool / Scotland heavy.
Lineker and Baker - Pair of c**ts
Kirsty Gallagher Stripped Back sport - shit guests, shit interviewer.

Surprised no-one has mentioned Athletico Mince yet. Inconsistent but usually has me in stitches a few times each podcast. The compilation episodes are too samey though

I like Bob Mortimer but I've never "got" any of the Athletico Mince stuff I've seen.

It's pretty madcap but stick with it and it can be brilliant. Very surreal and a lot of running jokes

As much as I like the Mince, they’ve run a bit short of ideas recently. I think Bob would be better off finding a funnier co host than Andy too.

this is not it but crying here

The one I'm thinking of was posted on here. It was an animated one, cartoony almost, and I'm sure he was in bed ill and his mum was fetching him Tomato Soup or something.

I must admit, I didn't 'get' it either, but then I don't listen to the pod so it might've been a running in joke or something.
