About This List

A list of British podcasts I love
  1. New podcast about music and shouting with Robin Ince and Michael Legge and some others. Two old men talking about music and trying to convince you to start buying records again.
  2. The world's first podcast dedicated to the ancient art of Stone Clearing (removing stones from a field and using them for better purpose) which will serve as an introduction to the industry for the newcomer, but hopefully provide tips for the many other stone clearers around the world, as well of being of interest to people who like to hear poor quality audios of an unfit man walking round a field, moving stones and talking to himself, whilst trying to pretend to other dog walkers that he isn't doing that. Over the next years and decades it will be a weekly update on [p]Richard Herring[/p]'s attempts to build a wall around the huge field that can be seen from space and also rid the said field of anything that is bigger than a piece of soil, to a depth of 5 metres. Along the way we will learn much about life, death, the futility of existence and how sometimes when you attempt the impossible you can succeed. Though most times you won't. For more information on stone clearing please read Richard's daily blog (warning - contains some non-stone clearing blogs), Warming Up: http://www.richardherring.com/warmingup Remember this effort is a secret. Please do not tell anyone what Richard is doing.
  3. Pappy’s Flatshare is the home of all of Pappy’s podcast ventures with a brand new episode appearing every week.  There’s their award winning live panel gameshow Flatshare Slamdown in which they play silly games with famous names from the world of comedy (previous guests include Romesh Ranganathan, Aisling Bea, Nish Kumar, Sara Pascoe, Josh Widdicombe, Bridget Christie, James Acaster, Kerry Godliman and many more).  There’s Beef Brothers: Cold Cuts in which Pappy’s solve you the listeners’ flatshare related problems with the help of a special guest.  And finally there’s House Meeting in which our three heroes, sit down, catch up and set the world to rights.  So why not join Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby and Tom Parry and become a neighbour today!
  4. Bob Mortimer and Andy Dawson's podcast - brass hands, blue drink and more. It's not really about football, d'you know what I mean?
  5. Everywomen Joan Damry and Jericha Domain have between them worked in the fields of life coaching, female sexual health, psycho-genital counselling and sports journalism for the past 32 years. Joan has been married several times and has five children, while Jericha has been married for 30 years and has an only daughter, Cardinal. Joan recently turned her hand to erotic-romantic adult fiction, whilst Jericha has written 5 books on depression.
  6. Comedy writers Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris talk to people who make comedy about something funny that they love. Guests pick a TV show, a film, a book, an album or a comic that means something to them. Maybe we find out something about how comedy works. Maybe there's just a lot of giggling.
  7. Do The Right Thing is a live audience comedy panel show hosted by Danielle Ward, with team captains Michael Legge and Margaret Cabourn-Smith. They are joined by different guests each week to work out what the right thing to do is in any given situation.
  8. Raucous, ridiculous and surprisingly satisfying - The Horne Section Podcast is back! Join us every other week as host Alex Horne and his band are joined in the basement by a very special guest for some musical mayhem and plenty of laughs.
  9. The ParaPod is a weekly podcast of all things mysterious and supernatural, hosted by Ian Boldsworth (voice of reason) and Barry Dodds (gullible believer). Join us as we debate mysteries famous and rare, conspiracies, the paranormal, explore hauntings, and delve headfirst into the unknown.
  10. Hello. My name is Michael and this is my podcast thing. It features Blogging For The Blind, Precious Littler, Cvntscast and various other pointless shittery. Enjoy.
  11. RHLSTP is an award-winning series in which comedian Richard Herring ("The Podfather" - The Guardian) chats with some of the biggest names in comedy and entertainment. Stephen Fry, Eddie Izzard, Dawn French, David Mitchell, Katherine Ryan and Brian Blessed are amongst the many stars to have been interviewed across the 200+ episodes.
  12. British comedian Adam Buxton talks with interesting people. The rambly conversations are sometimes funny, sometimes more serious with funny bits. Adam makes the jingles and records the intros and outros for most episodes while walking with his dog friend Rosie in the East Anglian countryside where he lives with his wife and three children. Adam has appeared in films such as Hot Fuzz, Stardust and Son Of Rambow as well as a variety of TV shows in the UK. Since 2007 he has hosted BUG, a live show that combines music videos and comedy that became a TV series on Sky Atlantic in 2012. From time to time he also does live shows featuring just his own material. Along with lifelong friend Joe Cornish he also is one half of award winning TV, radio and podcast duo Adam & Joe who have worked together since 1995. You can find many of the insanely catchy jingles Adam makes for the podcast as well as amazing bonus material, beautiful merchandise and a selection of his incredibly funny and brilliant YouTube videos on the free Adam Buxton app. Adam is writing this himself using the third person.
  13. Comedians Ed Gamble and James Acaster invite special guests into their magical restaurant to each choose their favourite starter, main course, side dish, dessert and drink.

  17. David Earl, Joe Wilkinson and Poppy Hillstead read out unsubstantiated rumours sent in by listeners. At the end of each episode they choose their favourite piece of gossip and help spread it further by getting Poppy to shout it out the window.
  18. David Baddiel and his mate Tim Hincks talk all things David Bowie. They spin out from there to anything and everything that’s funny, quizzical, and vaguely related to Bowie, or music, or their own mid-life crises. It’s a bit niche: Absolute Beginners won’t get it. You see? The ones who got that reference are smiling smugly. And others are thinking: I shan’t listen to that then.
  19. For anyone who writes comedy, makes comedy, loves comedy, or just has an interest in comedians and what makes them so annoying.
  20. Welcome to Brian Gittins and Friends. A new fortnightly podcast where Brian Gittins and David Edwards are joined by a special guest for a old-fashioned conversation. Each episode takes place in different location on planet earth.Edited by James Torrance Produced by Mr Box Productions: mrbox.tv
  21. Tony Law has befriended an A.I. called Verity. Ostensibly a straightforward digital co-host service, she's quietly learning all she can about humans from their weekly meetings. But is The Tone Zone the most representative everyman available?
  22. Be Reasonable is a podcast from the Merseyside Skeptics Society, with Hayley Stevens and Michael Marshall. Each monthly interview will examine beliefs from outside of the mainstream, exploring how those views are constructed and what evidence people feel supports their case. We believe in approaching subjects with respect and an open mind, engaging with people of differing viewpoints in an environment where debate is polite and good-natured, yet robust and intellectually rigorous.
  23. Ever feel like you missed something important when it comes to the news? A fact, a detail, or an event that it feels like everyone else knows about, and now you'd look like a moron if you asked someone to explain? Well, here's a podcast that will ask those questions so you do't have to. Each week, comedian Danielle Ward (Do The Right Thing) is joined by two comedians and an actual expert in something important, who will field the basic and/or obvious questions you somehow never got around to asking until now. It'll be like how a parent talks to a five year old, but with a bit more swearing and a whole lot more facts.
  24. Yes, it's POTOm!
  25. Being a comedian is the hardest thing anyone can do. As such, those who achieve even a modicum of success in this selfless, humanitarian, dangerous career are rightly held up as the best of us. True heroes. In this series David Reed will interview some of comedy's most available exponents and ask them "Who are you under all that skin?", "When did comedy first bite you?" and "What's the microphone for?" as he delves deeper than anyone has ever delved inside the comedian.
  26. It's the trans-global satiricast that leaves no hot potato unbuttered. Andy Zaltzman breaks down the news with comedians from across the world including Alice Fraser, Hari Kondabolu, John Oliver, Nish Kumar, and his sister Helen.

  28. Witty, irreverent look at the world through scientists' eyes. With Brian Cox and Robin Ince.
  29. In this topical, rambling podcast series, Andrew Collins and Richard Herring attempt to recreate the golden days of Andrew's old radio programme where they used to talk about what's in the newspapers, except now they're not at the BBC but at Richard's dining table using an in-built mic on his laptop. Do they recapture that unforced magic? Only you can decide. Image: Steve Brown; Logo: Steve Newman
  30. At the Mystery on the Rocks bar you’ll find a retired sleuth, the bartender trying to settle his tab, and the down-on-her-luck lounge singer, solving mysteries and drinking cocktails. Each week a new guest enters the bar and attempts to solve an unsolved mystery alongside the regulars. Hosted by Masud Milas, Chris Stokes, and Sooz Kempner. Whilst this comedy and true crime podcast is set in a fictional crime-solving bar, the mysteries and the cocktails are very real. From true crime and bizarre occurrences to X-Files and the paranormal, all with a whodunnit or WTF happened question hanging over them. Masud makes the drinks, Chris tells the mystery and Sooz sings and plays live piano – and everyone chats and chimes in with their theories. So come in, pull up a chair, and let's crack this case. This is a Studio71 production.  Producer - Jack Claramunt  Exec Producer - Tom Payne & Jody Smith Production Support - Phie McKenzie Studio71 is a Red Arrow Studios Company.

  50. Each David Bowie album is unique. Some are universally lionised, some regarded as merely legendary, some, pretentious codswallop. But we all have our favourites. In this series of podcasts, I meet up with writers, musicians, critics and assorted woodland folk, to explore their choice of album in rambling roundelays of free-form facting, anorak-grade geekery, pompous pontification, impassioned argument and highly-contentious chat. I like to think these podcasts exercise the minds of some of the world’s (well, at least the bit I am in) most eminent Bowiebores, my lugubrious interrogations spurring them to wax lyrical and entertainingly - just for you. I hope you enjoy listening to them. Presented and produced by Arsalan Mohammad Music by http://bensound.com
  51. A podcast in which 'The King of Edinburgh' (List) interviews comedy stars and showcases the best new comedians at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Featuring improvised comedy chat and serious chat about comedy. A different show every day, yet reassuringly exactly the same.
