Podcasts
« on: November 06, 2015, 09:28:01 AM »
I was complaining the other day about rush hour traffic and a friend suggested I start listening to Podcasts to put the time in. I checked the Podcast App on my phone like he said and I couldn't believe just how much was there... does anyone else use the app and can suggest a few good channels on whatever subjects...

Podcastone.com, a lot of US based stuff but quite a large variety

TuneIn Radio or SoundCloud.

TuneIn is good but doesn't let you download (as far as I know) which is a pain.

My phone always picks out TuneIn radio as being very heavy on the battery, even when not in use.

I would still listen to the odd episode of An Irishman Abroad but I think the interviewer is getting progressively worse at interviewing people. The Padraig Harrington one recently was decent though and the Shane Lowry one from a fortnight ago was okay but nothing special as he has stopped really asking interviewees about their background.

Serial is a excellent one about an America kid who got put in jail for murder because he couldn't account for 15 minutes of his school day.

On a local note, for any MMA fans check out @severemmapod. Some excellent coverage and the two lads know their stuff, obsessed comes to mind.

100% agree, it's got to the stage now where I've quit downloading them but made an exception for Harrington and Lowry.
The first few dozen were great, then after that got progressively worse , everything and everybody was referenced back to standup comedy and if the interviewee WAS a standup comic we were treated to a full on " this is how I write and prepare my stand up"! Boring after a while and to be honest he's starting to get a bit patronising.

Some of the scroobius pip interviews are good podcasts, great interviews.

Just out of curiosity when do you get time to listen to a podcast?
