I saw this article on the BBC that says that a lot more people are now listening to podcasts, and that the Love Island podcast is attracting an audience (young people) that a lot of mainstream producers have traditionally failed to.

Do you listen to any music-based podcasts? Or any podcasts in general? What would you recommend to someone who doesn't listen to any at the moment?

yes - i'm obsessed. i can't leave the house without my podcasts and i listen to all kinds of stuff: politics, comedy, self-help, religious, law stuff, true crime just to name a few.

obviously Serial season 1 is the best podcast of all time, but maybe a newcomer shouldn't start from the top. lately i've been listening to Real Time with Bill Maher, Armchair Expert (Dax Shepard), Oprah Super Soul, Freakonomics, and others.

Beef and Dairy Network podcast is a recent comedy obsession of mine, otherwise there are plenty of more serious, topical, newsy ones out there - Caliphate is fascinating stuff, and S-Town really draws you in (although is more of a character study).

I love All Killa No Filla - serial killer podcast by two British comedians (Rachel Fairburn and Kiri Pritchard-Maclean) - usually just turns into them chatting crap. Aaaaand My Favourite Murder - American serial killer podcast by two women (notice a theme?).

I've very recently started listening to Why Won't You Date Me? by Nicole Byers (American comedian that presents Nailed It on Netflix) and it's pretty hilarious and cringey.

I'm more about chatty podcasts - I don't really feel serious ones. I listened to series 1 of Serial and it just infuriated me!

Yeah, Hello Internet. It's a conversation-type podcast between the Youtubers CGP Grey and Brady Haran. Brady Haran runs the Numberphile, Objectivity, Computerphile, Periodic Videos, Bibledex, DeepSkyVideos, NottinghamScience channels (and one that I'm probably forgetting). They talk about all kinds of things - youtube, science, technology, their videos (usually Grey's videos because they only come out every couple months). Sometimes it's actually pretty funny.

This here is one of my favourite episodes.

Yes, I tend to listen to podcasts that bear relevance to my major, it's almost like wider reading except that you can multitask while listening.

I particularly enjoy listening to them on the treadmill or when I go for a run, makes the time go by faster and you feel more productive.

Podcasts are amazing. It’s like a new technological revolution: even though the technology has been around for some time, the demand hasn’t been there until recently. Most people can read, most can write but everyone can listen.

Joe Rogan does some great light-hearted podcasts; my favourite are the ones with Joey “coco” Diaz as a guest - he’s nuts in the best possible way.

For more serious discussions, I’ve been listening to Jordan Peterson for the last 18 months or so. The way he articulates his ideas can be difficult to understand at first and i often find myself pausing halfway through because it can all get a bit much (though that’s probably my lack of intellect more than anything).

I've recently started listening to some podcasts- one of my particular favourites is "Talk is Jericho" by the wrestler/musician Chris Jericho which covers all sorts from wrestling music to things like urban legends and paranormal activity (not the films lol). As mentioned above, Joe Rogan's podcast is pretty good and covers a wide variety of things although sometimes I find them a little too long.

Not really tbh. I used to listen to Lewis Spears’ podcast - which is really good btw - but honestly I’d rather listen to music or watch a video .

This Past Weekend by Theo Von and Tiger Belly by Bobby Lee. Two I watch at the mo. Watch h3h3 if they have a good guest.

Coco Diaz is a bit of a bore on his own podcast, for some reason; too much of speaking in a low voice and saying "ya know, when I started out ..." Rogan is a pseudo-intellectual who eats too much elk; good guest and I might have a look.

Don't generally watch them though, on account of The Daily Mash. "PODCASTS are not listened to outside London because people there have friends, research has discovered."

Pseudo-intellect who eats too much elk 😂😂

I don’t think Joe Rogan is trying to be anything that he isn’t. He’s just a normal guy with a deep love and understanding of MMA but also questions the wider society and questions deeper aspects of life

If you want pseudo-intellectual, check out Rogan’s podcasts with Eddie Bravo and his conspiracies...Eddie is a master of BJJ but he does come out with some *****cks.
