Deffo prefer the Ramble. Its probably cause their sense of humor is very similar to mine (and I can see how it could grate for some), but in a serious note one of its strengths is the fact they aren't journos so arent reliant on web site clicks and dont need to keep anyone sweet, so will call things as they see em. Good to have a dissenting view

See your point (although some of the Ramble crew do journo stuff, just not particularly good at it) but it's also just too PL centric. With FW you're guaranteed to be kept up to date with La Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, Serie A etc.

I like the ramble but I do think they are guilty of regurgitating opinons from other football podcasts - notably football weekly.

World Football Phone-In is good - especially Tim Vickery - some of the other contributors can be hit and miss though.

Kind of a follow up to the Serial Podcast

http://undisclosed-podcast.com/

'The Undisclosed Podcast is a listening experience that reframes, enhances or otherwise shifts everything you've come to know about the State of Maryland's case against Adnan Syed, especially as you've come to know it through listening to Serial. In order to do that, we intend to revisit the case from the beginning, looking at all the available evidence. Not only will we look at the evidence that was presented in Serial, but we will also provide new evidence that we've uncovered in our investigation. We have combed through police and court records that the Serial team did not possess during the podcast, and done much, much more to get to the truth. Accordingly, we aspire to present the best possible version of the events as we believe those events to be. We will also present theories that we believe the evidence best construes. Perhaps most importantly, we will provide you with all of our evidence as part of that process.

We want our listeners to know that this podcast will not give you purely pro-Adnan information or intentionally slant it in his favor. We will present a smart, nuanced legal argument based on the totality of the facts in the case. As attorneys, we pride ourselves on looking dispassionately at facts, analyzing those facts, and applying the appropriate law in our analysis. Our coverage of Adnan's case on our blogs has taken this tact, and we aim to continue our assessments in this new medium. We promise you, our listeners, that our goal in this podcast is not to exonerate Adnan. Our goal is to get to the truth of what happened on January 13, 1999, and we believe that the best way to do so is to analyze all of the available information to come to an informed conclusion. That's what this podcast is all about.'

Amanda Knox has been cleared for a second time of murdering British student Meredith Kercher at the cottage they shared in Italy in November 2007. The decision handed down by Italy's highest court puts an end to seven years of legal wrangling.

Knox, together with her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, were originally convicted of the murder in 2009. They were acquitted on appeal two years later because of doubts over the forensic evidence, but their convictions were reinstated in January 2014.

Ruth Alexander asks what might have influenced the Italian Supreme Court's decision as she returns to interviews gathered last year with some of the key players in the case.

Joe Rogan Podcast - Interviews comedians, celebs, MMA fighters. Each episode is at least an hour long but some are 3 hours +.

How did this get made - A podcast breaking down movies that are so bad that they are good.

Joe Rogan has become the podcast king, Sam Harris is an excellent deep thinker, on a british tip I'd add Adam Buxton as his are always highly entertaining.
Also mention This American Life, always a high standard, The Kickabout with Johnny Vaughn, basically his old warmup show, Radiolab, The New Yorker Radio hour, terrific for contemorary culture, Criminal, KCRW s The Business, weekly insider hollywood industry stuff.

Joe Rogan and Sam Harris are both millionaires. Why would anyone who isn't trust them? Let alone believe what they have to say.

A main attribute of this ilk's thinking is that it's what is in peoples heads that change the world. Swapping oppression with offence is easy after this. (Mannn my boss was so offended when I asked for a fair wage last week)
