    So, I've been trying to broaden my horizons of late and as dirty threeway sex is out of the question (no matter WHO you ask...) I've been dabbling with listening to a few podcasts instead.

    I'm much more of a music type person, so don't have much time for idle waffling from folk (Radio annoys the crap out of my for this) but I do like a good yarn or a bit of history / documentary type stuff. I listened to the first season of Serial, which was great and a few episodes of Welcome to Night Vale (which was also enjoyable and an ideal length for a commute).

    Has anybody got any other decent podcasts they can recommend? What's everyone's preferred app to use?

    I've also utterly failed to get the thumbnail to work on this.

    You put a link to a Wikipedia page in the box instead of an image URL Microphone - Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microphone

    I listen to loads of podcasts, mainly film related ones.
    Kermode and Mayo, Empire magazine, Now Playing film retrospective, Unspooled.
    Haven't really found a good music one yet, though the recently launched Q magazine pod is pretty good.
    The Story of The Clash, narrated by Chuck D of Public Enemy is fantastic though only available through Spotify as far as I can see.
    I use the app that comes as basic on an iPhone, that does the job for me.

    I use castbox on android. Don't particularly like the update so keen to know if anyone has anything better.

    Comedy, I like Adam Buxton Podcast and Richard Herrings Leicester Square Theatre Podcast - they both interview some good comedians.

    Music, Sodajerker is great if you're interested in the craft of songwriting. They've interviewed a massive list of greats.

    Football, most people probably know Elis James' Feast Of Football. It's one of the better ones, I think, not just because of the Welsh angle.

    Something a bit different, look for The Butterfly Effect. It's a doc about how the guy who made pornhub massive completely changed the porn industry and the wide range of people who were deeply affected (not just pervs and pornstars).

    Yeah some are 3 hours long, he also does a best bits of the week but as I only really listen in work the length is not an issue for me there’s some bonkers stuff about Scientology in there but if you can listen to Steve-o’s in full it’s hilarious the stories he tells

    Best podcast I’ve ever heard by a country mile is “Shreds” about the Lynette White murder.
    It’s in about 13 parts, brilliant yet shocking.
    I was in school briefly with one of the five and remember the case well although I wasn’t aware of how scandalous the SWP investigation and subsequent white wash was conducted.

    Available on BBC sounds

    I'm using acast. I listed to Last Podcst on the Left, which can be quite good. It is True Crimes among other things. Latest episodes were on Israel Keyes.

    Podcasts I listen to...maybe some will appeal to you

    Frank Skinner - funny anecdotal stuff
    James Obriens Mystery Hour - phone in along the lines of Notes and Queries
    The Infinite Monkey Cage - accessible science with Brian Cox
    Jonny Vaughan - General chat. I find him funny and surprisingly intelligent
    Desert Island Discs - just delete the boring guests
    Elis James and John Robins - very entertaining
    Flintoff Savage and the Ping Pong Guy - generals sports chat
    Kermode and Mayo - film podcast

    Anyone tried The Offensive? For those that haven’t it’s about a fictional Premier League team based in Kent. It’s often referred to as being like a football version of The Thick if It. It’s not bad, bit hit and miss but some great one liners.

    I would also recommend shreds. In the dark season 2 about Curtis Flowers is good (yet another US miscarriage of justice against a black man). There is an eponymous ten parter on the Heaven’s Gate suicide cult which is interesting.

    I like Jonny Vaughan. Boarding school educated. His jail sentence here stopped him from becoming a star in America. Attempting to Supply £15,000 odd grands worth of sniff to a copper. He could never get a visa. He'd of dome well over there after The Big Breakfast years. Like a much, much better James Corden.
