podcast

a digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new instalments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.

At some point recently Spotify alerted people if they were in the top 3% or 1% of repeated listeners for any particular groups or solo artists. I was in the top 1% for Liam. I quickly noted this was not a positive and something that need direct action. NOW!

I have since taken sabbatical from music. I only really listen to one playlist of bangers when I run. It is mostly high NRG shit. I'm sure I will eventually come back to music in a big way but it has yet to happen. I am now listening to a lot of Podcasts. I bloody love them.

I would like people to discuss them in this thread.

The Rules

Please ONLY rate a specific episode. Yes, you can discuss the podcast as a series but we need to see ratings and comments specific to that podcast. Rolli has assured me that if there is any sense of bedlam based on not observing this rule then an instant 2 week ban will be instigated. Thank you, Rolli. It's a pleasure having a moderating team consisting of Canelo Álvarez being directed by Tony Sorprano.

I will return with a podcast review tomorrow.

I appreciate your efforts to stick the rules. Possibly too many brackets for my liking but that is just a preference.

My wife often tells me what a great women Laura Tobin is for creating a line of cards to be given to women who have lost children to premature birth. Will recommend.

Caught up with the latest two episodes of the Adam Buxton podcast this morning, which i'm a fan of; both incedentely had been recorded at the end of last year in a live setting at some kind of podcast festival, so sound of the audience was a little unusual.

Episode 124: Sara Barron
Quite an annpying American, but UK based comedienne, seemed a little obnoxious and got the feeling Buxton wasn't enjoying it that much either and he was throwing a few passive aggresive jibes her way, which was the best part.
6.2/10

Episode 125: George the Poet
A much more interesting and also timely discussion; though posted before everything kicked off in the States. A very interesting discussion around topics of race and class and the barriers and obstacles that have faced working class afro-carribbean families in the area of TCOTU George grew up in.
8/10

zack to the future (saved by the bell podcast) - 7 outta 10.

mark paul gosselaar (zack morris) revisits old episodes (he'd never seen em) and gives his ten pennies worth.

the conveniently placed ads are real cringe.

the interviewer sidekick is one of these expensive word english major nerds.

aside from that it's worth a listen. ;)

Not sure if it belongs here but does anyone know how to rip one Audible thingy? I'm interested on the St Vincent one but I believe you need to get a whole subscription to listen...

I've been listening to a lot of Joey Barton recently. Firstly his own patchy podcast (the ones with Gary Neville and Sean Dyche are good) and then 5 hours of him on the CFB one.

I really enjoyed him. He's got a very strong character and has a ridiculous amount of confidence in his own opinions. He's obviously got a lot of things wrong but his self belief makes for an entertaining listen. Every new manager he worked with he tells them his expectations of them and then very quickly decides if they are up to the job which is quite funny. There is a lot of 'during the first team talk I'm thinking I'm not having him'.

He sounds like an absolute nightmare for those who doesn't take to. He's also really open about the goings on at a football club. The stuff on QPR and Mark Hughes is particularly fun.

Listened to some Adam Buxton at the weekend. Not really a big fan of Adam and Joe but found his style fine.

Listened to Chris Morris and Steve Coogan (on seperate podcasts) who were exactly as you would expect. Highlight was Coogan talking about people making lazy comparisons between him and Partridge (‘Well I do write the fucking character’). Coogan said one of the first times people in the office told him something he said should be put in a script was based on him genuinely telling someone ‘He has a very serious in airplane crash investigation documentaries’.

LOL

7/10

Enjoyed the 1st podcast from Kunt acceptable in the 80s. Bit ropey but most first episodes are, will probably stick with it.

I realise this thread is in its infancy but if it is going to become a big hitter round here then please refer back to THE RULES.

Second episode was much better. The Micheal Jackson/Elephant man part where they crack up for 5 minutes had me laughing along. 

Also really enjoying

22 GRAND POD. Two of The Paddingtons interview people from indie bands 2001-2008. Listened to Gary Jarman, Ross from Futureheads, Mark Beumont and Dominic Masters so far. The Masters one was great, his story about T in the Park & Ian Brown's cousin is fucking brilliant. It's weird, the Paddington's guys are pretty shit interviewers, though the ones I've watched they've only asked about six questions per episode yet everyone goes really into depth.

I listened to the one with Ryan Jarman (5/10). Agree it's really low end (if the podcast was clothed it would be wearing ripped jeans) and a bit cringe. There's a lot of you'd just go to TCOTU in a ripped pair of jeans and put a gig on in someone's house and everyone would go mad. With added references to hard drugs. I'm intrigued by Dominic though as he is a genuine nutter. Ryan did tell a story about Liam who told him that he had shit hair when Liam and Ryan had the same haircut.

yeah that whole "incident" with Liam sounded like it was a case of Jarman's not understanding Liam's sense of humour. Gary talks about it more, quite funny hearing the pair of them so worked up over what seems nothing.

Yeah, I agree. Ryan was painting Liam as a boorish cardboard rockstar but actually Ryan was a cardboard cynical indie person who missed the joke. Oh how I laughed.

I've been listening to Last Word on Spurs recently as I'm getting really over emotionally attached to Tottenham at the minute due mostly to boredom.

Episode: 'Kane & Sons Magic Show'
Rating: 8/10

They had Anthony Costa on the other week from Blue the other week who was really good value. Just saying things like "THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABAHT" and "I AINT GETTING EXCITED CAUSE I'VE SEEN IT ALL BEFORE' really loudly and coming across like someone ranting about football in a pub who you'd really not want to be listening to.

Their main thoughts on Spurs seem to be based on we're grinding out victories, we shouldn't feel bad about getting excited about winning the league this year and everyone should stop moaning. We've spanked Burnley and Brighton in recent seasons so I'm not sure why we should now get excited about just about beating them. We didn't exactly grind out a result from West Ham but no one talks about that game and rightly so. Anyway, they read a tweet this week from some random who said Spurs currently dominate the first 15 minutes of a half and then just fall back and try and hit on the break. This is the real cause of the moaning and creating the sense of anxiety that we're not actually that good and it is all going to come crashing down. We don't hold on to the ball for the sake of it to bore a team into submission. May be they will get on to it next week when we beat West Brom 1-0.

Anybody listening to anything lately?

I won't say it's a podcast for me and I didn't want to start a new thread but I am loving the Jordan & White show on Talksport. I recently noticed you can watch it live on YouTube/Facebook so I have been giving that a watch. I'll give them a solid 8.5/10 for production and content.

I do sometimes listen in on Durham & Gough as well in the afternoon/evening and I don't mind them but they can't just beat old Jordo And Whitey. 7/10
