Podcasts


#1

As a man 10 years behind every curve, I have only just started listening to podcasts.

Started Homecoming on the way to work today. That’s good.

Any recommendations? Looking for any drama stuff, history, sports, da footeh, odd things etc


#2

I don’t think anyone here listens to Podcasts?


#3

I also started listening to podcasts recently and was thinking of posting on the very same subject but once I’d had my first coffee at work I forgot about it.

I’ve been listening to Live from Leicester Square on the bus to work. It started in 2015 so I have some catching up to do until I get to the more recent episodes. Episode one was Danny Baker, and if you’re into football you might enjoy his Baker and Kelly podcast.

Binned off Bill Burr, Hollywood Babble On (Kevin Smith) recently.

Empire’s alright. Do Total Film do one? Probably.

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
added one more podcast to the giant podcast bin
now you have plucked that podcast out and started listening


#17

Little White Lies do one called Truth & Movies. Okay but quite grumpy and snooty.
The /filmcast is ok (tbh I only really like Devindra out of the three main presenters, but it’s okay)
Blank Check with Griffin and David is great. They take a director and then go through their filmography chronologically (currently on Kathryn Bigelow). They occasionally do an actual contemporaneous film review (if that’s what you’re specifically after) but they’re quite rare.


#18

this sounds like the kinda thing i’m after. will check it out, cheers
