Podcast newbie

I have finally stepped into the world of the podcast.
Excuse me if I’m a little late on the scene, but I’ve caught up at last.

What a fun way to waste spend yet more of the little free time that I already have.
Tonight, for instance, to get in the mood for this blog entry I watched an old episode of Jamie’s Ministry of Food and listened to a couple of very old (2008) podcasts from the wonderful Stephen Fry.

I am now about to download the BBC’s Books and Authors series as well.

Oh a whole new way to use up the monthly bandwidth and avoid what passes for television in this country.

So what are you waiting for?  Is the rubbish “reality” television programming with a side order of infomercials driving you to the edge of sanity?  Do you think that your brain is being sucked dry by such drivel?  Well, choose your own input.  Go podcast browsing and see what you might like to have enter your home instead of taking whatever some programme buyer thinks will sell more advertising spots.

I am thinking that I might just start some link love to podcasts of note.
What do you think?  Would you like to know what’s out there?

Do you have links to share?   One podcast newbie is all ears – please share.

Just a side note for Tori:  There’s a Freakonomics Radio podcast.  I can’t remember if you said you enjoyed the book or not* so I thought I would mention it.
* that’s why you need a blog.  🙂  So I can check my facts.

  1. Ha ha – I’m definitely going to check it out. The Books and Authors one looks fantastic as well. I was a huge fan of the Russell Brand podcast, but he was naughty and that was the end of that. I used to listen to The Geoff Show as well (Virgin Radio UK, but it’s changed name now and I can’t remember to what) and the Ricky Gervais ones too. Please let me know what podcasts you find – my job is mindless data entry and is a great way to listen to all kinds of stuff (my ipod was one of my best birthday presents EVER).

    I’m audio booking it at the moment. Did you have a look at the online catalogue for Wellington Library? They have a lot of the BBC radio skit/panel shows on there and I have listened to a number of them as well

    Oh Stephen Fry, how I love him. Thrashed the H Potter audiobooks and so has Cass and have also introduced him to the world of QI. Have I mentioned how great it is to mould your children to your likes and dislikes? I know I have 😛

    I have to confess to watching one of my reality faves as I type – Deadliest Catch.

    I am seriously thinking about blogging now …
