Knew people would like it.

Check out This American Life as well. Latest episode 'Front' is really interesting.

Recently discovered The Champs podcast, It's basically two comedians interviewing interviewing people with comedy/hip hop culture. Well worth a listen- one of the guys co produced The Chappelle show

thought the final episode of Serial was a bit disappointing (Innocence Project's absurd 'serial killer' theory especially) – been a compelling listen for the most part though. I think he did it.

From what i've read up afterwards it's not absurd at all the only weirdness would be jay's involvement.

which is why it seemed so far-fetched and implausible to me

Implications of jay being couched by the police already.

In any case the serial killer theory is primarily as a means lodge the court petition in order to have the DNA tested. I'm not sure they really think it that likely.

alot of the early ricky gervais guardian podcasts were just reusing the material off the radio shows.

they got funnier towards the end tho.

been listening to these and the podcasts every night for last 8 years to get to sleep. getting to the point of saturation. anything else similar?

Interesting to see what turns up on the rope.

I've always had russell brands radio 2 shows on my ipod/iPhone since they were released. Great to dip in and out of and to get to sleep. Slightly different in that it's an audio book but Keith Richards 'Life' is brilliant.

I do this too haha. Only other one I could maybe compare is the old Russell Brand & Matt Morgan radio 2 shows, there's some even earlier ones with Trevor Lock as well think they were on xfm at that point. were always pretty good. Especially the phone calls to Noel Gallagher.

Tried listening to The Football Ramble and couldn't get past the first minute. Can't handle listening to inherently unfunny people trying to be funny.

Football Ramble is far too juvenile for me at times, and they don't seem to follow much of a formula (even getting rid of the quality Profile section at the end) - much prefer Football Weekly. 5 Live's World Football Phone In is great if you're looking for another football podcast.

Musically, Little White Earbuds, Resident Advisor, XLR8R all do good house/techno mixes.
