As I have an iPhone I usually just use the default Podcast App. Sometimes I use the Spotify App if the podcast is exclusive to that platform. Podcasts, and a glass of beer/wine while cooking is my favorite relaxation time.
Cool isn’t it.
Superb for de stressing

Well done he’s 13
Darknet Diaries on Spotify is excellent. 50-70 minute episodes about high profile hackers who tell their stories from the past, some who worked in high profile cyber security cases and other who were criminal hackers. It’s explained in a way in which you don’t have to have any knowledge about hacking or programming (which I don’t)

If you’re going to start anywhere I’d recommend Xbox underground, 2 part episodes. Fascinating about how nerdy teens who were part of a hacking group ended up being chased by the FBI after going too far

There is no way hardcore history is on your day to day. Love that guy but there are huge gaps between drops.:)

I recommend The Dollup for your weekly history fix.

I started listening to him last year. The episodes are like 3-4 hours long. My commute is 25 minutes. There are almost 70 episodes.

Fare point. I am corrected. Wish he was more frequent as his style and research is really good.

It's like food. You can't have 5 Star ratings and also be super fast. He's so good because he takes the time to do seriously in depth research about it for someone who isn't an actual historian.

Ah, good man. Everyone should listen to Ghosts of the Ostfront and Death Throes of the Republic (ones that might not be listed for free anymore in a podcast player).

Hadn't listened to Last Podcast On The Left before, so randomly jumped in on the Leonard Lake & Charles Ng episodes. You'd think I'd get tired of a somewhat racist impersonation of an awful man's Chinese accent over multiple episodes but nope, laughed every time.

The stuff on Serial Killers or the Oklahoma City Bombing has killed many a long drive.

Casefile is the best weekly true crime one that I’ve found.

West Cork was an excellent one off, like serial but even better.

the Irish history podcast
I used to listed to that guy daily a few years ago, until I got bored with the whole true crime genre. He's very good.

Surprised nobody has mentioned 'The secret history of hollywood'

Highly recommend to anyone who loves a good story. The Bullets and Blood series (The history of Warner Brothers), Alfred hitchcock and Audrey Hepburn are absolutely incredible. The guy who makes them has a great narrator's voice that just brings everything to life.

If you have an Audible subscription you can get the ones I mentioned above. I think his more recent series on horror producer Val Lewton (I'd never heard of him but the story of his life is awesome) and his latest ongoing series about Cary Grant, are available via most podcast platforms for free.

Howdy folks.

I've been involved in a podcast that's now 129 episodes long. Figured I'd give it a promotion on here seeing as I've been on the 'caf about 17 years :lol:

It's called a Pod of Two Halves,


We've changed the format from last season to get a shorter show in and do spend a little bit of time discussing it at that start, but after that I reckon it's a pretty fun show!

For interviews, I quite like WTF with Marc Maron.

Maron has a kind of laid-back, conversational style that seems to elicit a good response from most of his interviewees.

If you were a fan of the TV series GLOW, you'll already know who he is.

Never binge Marc Maron. Biggest mistake I made (in podcasting). Can't listen to the guy now.

And I'm all out of bubblegum.
Scene on Radio just opened their 5th season, The Repair, this one on the historical basis of the climate crisis. Here's how they describe it:

This season will explore the cultural roots of our current ecological emergency, and the deep changes Western society will need to make to save the Earth and our species. Through interviews with historians and other experts, The Repair will trace the evolution of the West's colonizing, extractive culture, and how we in the rich Global North drove humanity into the ecological ditch. We'll hear from producers in countries that did not create the crisis, yet got hit early and hard. Finally, with help from leading thinkers and activists, Bierwen and Westerwelt will ook at potential solutions - the repair.

Three with the same host as each other:

Running from COPS: About the exploitative nature of the COPS television programme.

The Line: About the Navy Seals and the Eddie Gallagher case, the guy who was accused of war crimes by his own squad (and lauded by Trump, because of course he was).

9/12: This one is new, looking at how the world changed in the wake of 9/11.

I‘m sure it has been mentioned already, but The Football Ramble is quite good.

Around the NFL Podcast. And then the Throwback Podcast, which is a musically themed sideproject of one of the guys from the aforementioned NFL pod.

The only United podcast I've ever gotten into is the Rantcast, I think it's been renamed now. I lost interest when one of the two guys got so busy he didn't watch a fair number of games he was supposed to be talking about.

Anyone checked out that Gervais one you have to pay for? It's apparently breaking all kinds of records.

Don’t listen to many podcasts but this is my religious one.

Don’t like the ones with Kate Mason but the rest are all top.

The whole Football Ramble presents On The Continental series are also really good.

Luke and Pete are my favorites! Their own podcast is brilliant too.

Can anyone recommend something funny and light hearted, something to listen to before going to sleep?
I listen to the legendary Karl Pilkington usually but I'm sick of it now.
