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...

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.

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.

Jesus he’s hard to listen to. He gets a lot of good people on to interview but his voice and his slow long drawn out way of asking questions is annoying.

Second Captains are the standard bearer in Ireland in my opinion and would give particular praise to Richie Sadliers' series of interviews called 'The Players Chair' as he gets a range of guests from all different sports. I find podcasts a great way to learn about other sports and niche topics too that the mainstream media don't always cover.

They are by no means perfect but if you are after something more GAA focused, we've done 19 one-on-one interviews with GAA players on the Real Talks podcast now. They usually last for an hour or so and focus on sport, life, passions and life outside the sporting bubble - we just tried to show a different side to GAA players. Kevin McManamon, Eamon McGee, Oisin McConville, Brendan Maher, Cora Staunton and Philly McMahon have been the most popular episodes so far. If interested, you can find them at RealTalks.ie or search 'Real Talks' into your podcast app.

Crimetown is a good real crime one about Providence, Rhode Island and their corruption, mafia etc.

I was recommended S Town and it started good but tailed off badly I thought. Last few episodes I was going through the motions to listen to them.

Must start that Serial. Think it is the same crew that do S Town.

Post by: Jayop on June 12, 2018, 10:41:35 PM
I'd listen to quite a few different ones, some every week and some I dabble in.

Joe Rogan occasionally, just because I'm a mega leftie liberal and he's about the closest thing to a right winger I can stomach and it's no harm to listen to the other side every so often. Just a note, never watch a Joe Rogan clip on YouTube or every single one of your suggested videos will be either Joe Rogan or crazy right wing conspiracy theory videos. Brutal.

Dan Carlins hidden history. Excellent podcasts exploring different events, but they're just too long for me unless I'm on a 3 hour drive as I prefer to listen to them all in one go.

Second Captains. It's good but I don't subscribe and find the main fella Ken very annoying.


Off the Ball - Pretty much the full range but I only listen religiously to the GAA pods.

The GAA hour - The best GAA podcast by a mile even though Parkinson is a tit.

We are Ulster - they only put out the odd one so I always listen in.

Flintoff, Savage and the Ping Pong Guy - Listened to all of this. Actually very interesting and Savage isn't the tit I always thought he was.

The Irish History Podcast with Finn Dwyer is excellent, particularly the series on the Famine.  It'll get your blood boiling.  He does Famine Walking tours round Dublin too, which I'll definitely be booking.

Oh, and Blindboy is great.

Dan Carlin Hardcore History - very good the length of them as said before can kind of put you off though.
Danielle Bolleli History on Fire similar to above but more managable pieces.
Irish History Podcast has some great content as does the Irish History Show, these were what got me into podcasts


Body of Knowledge Season 1 was very good talking about anatomy and how muscles etc work and grow, Season 2 bored the pish out of me

Waking Up with Sam Harris, disagree with pretty much everything he believes but can be an interesting listen.

What Android Apps are people using, I use Podcast Addict and have to say I find it very good.

Just started listening to Blood Red from the Liverpool Echo. Not bad so far.

Used to listen to ESPN FC with Steve Nicol, Craig Burley, Shaka Hislop etc., but you get tired of them all taking the piss and shouting, while not giving much in the way of football analysis.

I like Dunphy’s interviews with Giles and Brady on English football, even if Dunphy could tone down the sycophancy.

He also interviews Niall Stanage, a northern lad who works for The Hill. Usually interesting inside-Washington stuff.

Anyone who remembers the Premier League in the 90’s might like ‘Quickly Kevin, Will He Score?’ - The 90s Football Show Podcast. Listened to a few so far. Very very good, and a bit of nostalgia. Looks like they’ve stopped making them, but plenty of them still available. Definitely worth a listen.

A lot of the podcasts I listen to have already been mentioned on the thread, but I find the following good:

- That Peter Crouch podcast: He seems like a funny down to earth guy and the other 2 aren't afraid to pull him up on things that he takes for granted
- Quickly Kevin, will he score: Excellent 90s football podcast with comedian Josh Widdicombe.
- Irish History podcast with Fin Dwyer
- The 2 Johnnies podcast: This may be old news, but I just found out about these lads recently (I live in Australia) and enjoying their podcast
- The David McWilliams podcast: Find his stuff intriguing. He talks about wide ranges of topics and links it back to economics. Don't need to know anything about economics to enjoy
- Casefile: A good true crime podcast. Produced in Australia, so has an Aussie bias to the crimes they cover, but have done a lot of the bigger worldwide stories like the moors murders etc. If you want to know all the details about Ivan Milat (backpacker murders) or Daniel Morcombe (13 year old that disappeared - how they caught the killer is too unbelievable even for a movie)
- GAA hour with Colm Parkinson: I wasn't a Woolly fan before I started listening, but this is an essential GAA resource. Detailed reviews of games. Any bias are usually stated so you can take it into account. And generally neither the bland 'don't want to offend anyone' type analysis nor the personal attacks (though Parkinson does sometimes use the podcast to further his spats with the likes of Brolly, Poacher etc)
- Mayo News Podcast: For all things one-sided Mayo GAA. Particularly helpful during club season, FBD and league
- Balls.ie: Surprisingly good, though not as good imo since they lost Maurice Brosnan
- Off the ball, Second captains etc
- various AFL podcasts

OTB Golf Podcast - Usually once a week
Blindboy Podcast - I only listen to the live podcasts wouldn't be greatly fussed on the others
Full Disclosure with James O'Brien - Some very good interviews with interesting people on it
Ireland Unfiltered with Dion Fanning - Again some good interviews
The Stand with Dunphy - I really enjoy the gangland stuff he did and he has some good interviews as well
Joe Rogan Podcast - I dip in and out if there's a gues I want to listen to. Derren Brown/Tyson Fury/Bill Burr/Jamie Foxx some good ones

I'm sure there are many other good ones but that's what I get the chance to listen to. I'd love to get into Bob Mortimer's podcast Athletico Mince I think he's hilarious and have heard some good skits from it.

Enjoy Dunphy too, although he often goes easy on some of the guests, regardless of their views. Brendan O'Neill is a regular contributor ("Ardent Brexiteer" is quoted almost as often as Tesco Finest!) and Ben Lowry was on recently. Wouldn't mind him or possibly another guest on at the same time to grill these pair on their views.

I follow very few as I don't get to listen to many but when I get a chance i'll listen to the below:

OTB Golf Podcast - Usually once a week
Blindboy Podcast - I only listen to the live podcasts wouldn't be greatly fussed on the others
Full Disclosure with James O'Brien - Some very good interviews with interesting people on it
Ireland Unfiltered with Dion Fanning - Again some good interviews
The Stand with Dunphy - I really enjoy the gangland stuff he did and he has some good interviews as well
Joe Rogan Podcast - I dip in and out if there's a gues I want to listen to. Derren Brown/Tyson Fury/Bill Burr/Jamie Foxx some good ones

I'm sure there are many other good ones but that's what I get the chance to listen to. I'd love to get into Bob Mortimer's podcast Athletico Mince I think he's hilarious and have heard some good skits from it.

Enjoy Dunphy too, although he often goes easy on some of the guests, regardless of their views. Brendan O'Neill is a regular contributor ("Ardent Brexiteer" is quoted almost as often as Tesco Finest!) and Ben Lowry was on recently. Wouldn't mind him or possibly another guest on at the same time to grill these pair on their views.

Brendan O'Neill is an absolutely vile piece of shit!!

I actually feel sorry for Lowry I think he is genuinely stupid and is struggling with the move towards unification!!

I think he was on the news there in the last few days saying about how everybody is overreacting, and we've never closed the pubs etc. You do wonder sometimes about people who are supposedly educated and smart.

On the podcast topic itself:

An Irishman Abroad - Jarlath Regan - good back catalogue with interviews from various backgrounds
Few of the local comedians
Shane Todd - Tea with me
Colin Geddis - General Banter
Aaron McCann - Dirt Civil
Shagged Married Annoyed - light listening about married couple who i'm sure a lot can relate to!
Open Goal - Si Ferry, Kevin Kyle and Paul Slane - scottish football related, with some episodes being interviews with former players

On RTE's website  there's a very decent library of their radio documentaries, available as podcasts for download

With RTE's website, rule of thumb is turn off adblockers

Thanks for The Nobody Zone recommendation.  Really enjoyed that.  Similar style to the Maddie podcast series.  I had never heard of Ciaran Kelly beforehand so this was all new to me.  Fascinating stuff.

I listened to the Stand episode 493 with the 3 lads Dunphy Giles Brady picking their best EPL team of this season.
The discussion had hardly started in earnest when war broke out as the young pup Brady took umbrage with one Giles' selections.
And then it was Dunphy's role to calm the storm.
Good fun and possibly a twinge of bias against Man City, hardly noticable though..

Haven’t listened to that one yet, but when the 3 lads are together they are great fun. Dunphy dislikes City (being a curious mix of a Liverpool supporter and ex-ManU (reserves) player). Giles would generally defend City when Dunphy goes too far. They all hate Pogba, and Ozil too!

Dunphy’s covering Covid well, interviews about Spain, Italy, Sweden as well as Ireland, UK, US

Only Brady picked de Bruine ;D

I listened to Stand podcast 683, an interview with the Sweden based journalist Philip O’Connor about covid there. My (non-Irish) wife passing by eavesdropped and remarked with the understatement ´jesus, that guy talks fast’.

Listened to that podcast myself. I normally listen on speed 1.5 myself, so it was a bit of a challenge to pick him up! Wasn't for admitting defeat and reverting to normal speed though.

A lot of the podcasts I listen to have already been mentioned on the thread, but I find the following good:

- That Peter Crouch podcast: He seems like a funny down to earth guy and the other 2 aren't afraid to pull him up on things that he takes for granted
- Quickly Kevin, will he score: Excellent 90s football podcast with comedian Josh Widdicombe.
- Irish History podcast with Fin Dwyer
- The 2 Johnnies podcast: This may be old news, but I just found out about these lads recently (I live in Australia) and enjoying their podcast
- The David McWilliams podcast: Find his stuff intriguing. He talks about wide ranges of topics and links it back to economics. Don't need to know anything about economics to enjoy
- Casefile: A good true crime podcast. Produced in Australia, so has an Aussie bias to the crimes they cover, but have done a lot of the bigger worldwide stories like the moors murders etc. If you want to know all the details about Ivan Milat (backpacker murders) or Daniel Morcombe (13 year old that disappeared - how they caught the killer is too unbelievable even for a movie)
- GAA hour with Colm Parkinson: I wasn't a Woolly fan before I started listening, but this is an essential GAA resource. Detailed reviews of games. Any bias are usually stated so you can take it into account. And generally neither the bland 'don't want to offend anyone' type analysis nor the personal attacks (though Parkinson does sometimes use the podcast to further his spats with the likes of Brolly, Poacher etc)
- Mayo News Podcast: For all things one-sided Mayo GAA. Particularly helpful during club season, FBD and league
- Balls.ie: Surprisingly good, though not as good imo since they lost Maurice Brosnan
- Off the ball, Second captains etc
- various AFL podcasts

"Daniel Morcombe"

Just listened to that one, kind of got the jist of how it was gonna get solved from this case "Atif Rafay, along with friend Sebastian Burn" - similar technique, was on a series on Netflix (US)

Bearbrook (start of family DNA), Dirty John, Man in the Window (Golden State killer) , Murder book, Running from Cops (about the making of the show Cops) all US true crime. "Root of Evil" crazy show about a crazy family possibly linked to Black Dahlia case.

"The Dark North" is great show about mafia in Montreal - someone mentioned "Crimetown" it's a bit similar to that, but with insane French Canadian bikers.

BBC show 'Shreds' really good on police corruption, false convictions etc set in Wales. Really good.

I’m a few episodes into “Wind of change”
Podcast series about a theory that the song from the skorpians “ Wind of Change” was a CIA sponsored phsyops move on Russia round about the time the iron curtain was falling , it goes into detail on how the CIA used Nina Simone and Louis Armstrong in Africa in the 60’s to halt the spread of communism

It’s actually very interesting and is formatted similar to “the nobody zone “ in that it’s a documentary type podcast vs a talking shop

I’m enjoying it , it’s worth a go

I didn't get the claimed virtue about the Nobody Zone podcast.
The character (ex cop) who wrote  the book about the supposed serial killer was exposed as deluded to an unknown extreme.
Apart from that, the English cops got their guy for a murder or two, he claimed he did more  and was willing to trade info in order for an  easier time but his evidence on the extra murders did not pass muster. The podcast investigator did not come up with any new decent evidence.
Afaics the  English cops did alright, they got their man, proved him guilty and did not introduce fantasy conspiracy  evidence into the equation.

A couple that have been recommended to me lately - haven't seen them discussed on here:

- 13 Minutes to the Moon
BBC World service produced this -
Season 1 is called How we landed on the moon. Goes through the lead up to the moon landing in great depth. I am on Ep5 and enjoying it. Last episode dealt with the Apollo 1 tragedy.
Season 2 is entitled The Apollo 13 Story

- Guru: The Dark Side of Entitlement
Produced by Wondery, who are famous for Dr Death, Dirty John and others.
I have just listened to episode 1 and intrigued - the story deals with self help, life coach type guru, a pseudo science that is becoming a bit of a growth industry
Quote
James Arthur Ray was an Oprah-endorsed self-help teacher who achieved fame, fortune, and influence. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him.

I'll second 13 Minutes To The Moon. Just the right amount of geeky engineering content without going overboard, and let's face it it's an interesting story!

The Nobody Zone is an excellent podcast, about the Irish serial killer in London.

For any of the ones on here who listened to this series, there are now new episodes out as I believe some new evidence has been uncovered.
