Any good new music podcasts? I’ve got a nice spread of sport, comics, politics, tech but not much music (Don’t worry, I already subscribe to the DiS one)

History of English podcast is pretty good. Good mixture of history and linguistics.

generally just listen to book podcasts if it’s an interesting enough topic or a decent interview.

i’m sure loads of publishers have their own ones now (e.g. ‘bookd’ by harper collins, not a listener of any, though). guardian books is updated regularly.

not strictly books, but literature-related
• little atoms: interviews, very often with writers of non-fiction.
• new york public library podcast: interviews - often authors, sometimes not authors but artists, generally good, in-depth interviews.
• the new yorker ficton: short stories from the archives of the new yorker, read by other authors
• longform podcast: podcast by longform, interviews with writers/journos that are normally around 1 hour long
• larb radio hour: los angeles review of books’ “variety show”

I did not know about this. Will check it out!


#16

I’ve been enjoying More Perfect from Radiolab - it’s about the Supreme Court. Really interesting stuff.


#17

Has anyone listened to Elis James one?


#18

I’ve been listening to this this mornings. It’s really padded out and a bit tooooo simplified but still very interesting and has prompted me to do some further reading.


#19

Radiolab need to do more things


#20

Yeah, Book Shambles is great, and there’s quite a few on there. The Guardian one can be good. There’s one I’ve subscribed to and not yet listened to it, but Literary Friction is meant to be good.
