Homosexual II (Homosexual II), Friday, 30 September 2005 20:56 (thirteen years ago) link

so what do i need to do a podcast?

A copy of Audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

With the lame mp3 encoder: http://lame.sourceforge.net/ (probably comes with the Audacity download, I don't remember)

$5 a month mp3 hosting from LibSyn: http://www.libsyn.com

That's about it.

I wouldn't have a clue about decent microphones. Anybody?

James Mitchell (James Mitchell), Friday, 30 September 2005 21:59 (thirteen years ago) link

So what makes for a good podcast? And when would you listen to it? I've been tempted to do one, just to see how it would work, but I have no idea what it is that makes people download these things. And I believe that Tombot might have a point up there, that more people are probably producing these things than listening to them.

Pleasant Plains /// (Pleasant Plains ///), Friday, 30 September 2005 22:17 (thirteen years ago) link

Hmm, I guess anything that makes audio compelling for an extended period of time: a charismatic personality, a narrative, a bunch of good songs, etc.

Listen to them... in the car? On the subway? It's basically surrogate radio for an iPod. Not so exciting, but still useful.

Confounded (Confounded), Friday, 30 September 2005 22:23 (thirteen years ago) link

If you like sermons, there are many churches that put out their weekly sunday sermons. At the itunes store just scroll through the list of religious ones. I occasionally listen to Ref. Pres. Theological Seminary or Tenth Presbyterian Church.

Also Probe ministries ( http://www.probe.org/ ) does a pretty good and informative talk show about various topics in Christianity or society.

There some okay science ones like "Science and Society"

I've also found a few language ones. Depending on which language you want to learn you can search through itunes store directory. I got one called "HESS Chinese survial guide."

any arty film- or music-related podcasts?

how about good podcasts in french???

Amateur(ist) (Amateur(ist)), Saturday, 12 August 2006 06:03 (twelve years ago) link

one year passes...

I've decided to utilise the full functional capacity of mypod. At the momment only listening to those available via itunes. Currently sampling:

Radio4's Best of Today
Amnesty International
NPR's It's All Politics
New York Times Op-Ed
Rob Da Bank's Sunday Best
The Onion
Ricky Gervais

These all fairly obvious. Can anyone offer me anything a bit more off-beat and esoteric? Not that I am either of those things but i might like to be.

Uptoeleven, Monday, 20 August 2007 10:45 (eleven years ago) link

Is Tom Ravenscroft's Channel 4 one still going?

Mark G, Monday, 20 August 2007 10:48 (eleven years ago) link

fuck! that was good, that. and i've forgotten all about it. arse.

The Sound of Young America
Jordan, Jesse Go!
Never Not Funny

jeff, Monday, 20 August 2007 17:56 (eleven years ago) link

R U Sirius has a show with interesting guests sometimes

zappi, Monday, 20 August 2007 18:06 (eleven years ago) link

i like radio lab a lot. very sound rich, but doesn't come out very often (probably b/c the quality is so good).

sweet tater, Monday, 20 August 2007 18:07 (eleven years ago) link

I listen to:

Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! (NPR panel show about the week's news)
The Paul Goebel Show (beat the geeks tv nerd talks about tv and says funny things)
Fighting Talk (BBC 5 sports panel show... I like panel shows, what can I say?)
Escapepod (Sci-fi short stories read to me! Yum!)
Hooting Yard (Cool prose, I think? I dunno, I love it but I don't get it)

That's it for now. I am sure I will listen to more as time passes though, I keep adding to it.

Ps. RIP Stycast

Will M., Monday, 20 August 2007 18:12 (eleven years ago) link

xpost HA! I had just come here to say Radio Lab! We are of one mind.


kenan, Monday, 20 August 2007 18:12 (eleven years ago) link

I listen to all the standard NPR ones (Wait Wait, Fresh Air, TAL), the Elvis Mitchell show on KCRW, the Harry Shearer show on KCRW, the Design and Architecture show on KCRW, Sound Opinions (laugh it up, rock snobs), and a couple DJ shows of friends.

kenan, Monday, 20 August 2007 18:15 (eleven years ago) link

eleven months pass...

Just added to the iPod:

NYer Comment
Sound of Young America
Intelligence Squared
Resident Advisor
Beats in Space
Tha Hunga Mixtape Show (unsigned hip-hop)

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 01:26 (ten years ago) link

Avoid RadioLab nowadays, btw. My post from 11 months ago couldn't be more wrong now. It's just stinking up the joint lately.

kenan, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 01:39 (ten years ago) link

Jeez, I'm crabby today. I sound like Harry Shearer! Who, not incidentally, is also off my love list. "Curmudgeon" is a great-sounding word until you find yourself listening to the opinions of one. :(

kenan, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 01:47 (ten years ago) link

Trying to figure out how to get vlogs on this piece.

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 02:01 (ten years ago) link

I used to use whatever this is called now on XP, but it's been a while.

kenan, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 02:14 (ten years ago) link

Anybody know anything else I ought to add?

This American Life & RadioLab are no gos for me I'm afraid.

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 02:16 (ten years ago) link

for all-talk, I started this thread a while ago, and there's some good recommends there.

Your favorite podcasts, non-music edition

I'm still happy with The Bugle, even though the jokes stop being novel after a few eps, but John Oliver is always good with the nearly outraged "omg this is ridiculous!" tone of delivery, and Andy Zaltzman on a good week still comes up with solid-gold chunk of absurdity. Something about the Archbishop of Canterbury conducting a funeral and launching into some weird tirade making fun of the corpse... "You're dead and you know you are!" I laughed for like a week. Your mileage may vary.

Actually, On The Media is probably the show I look most forward to every week. Make of that what you will. And though it depends on the featured DJ (Don Letts clearly needs a swift and mighty kick in the groin and to be hauled off the radio with a giant vaudevillian hook), I do like the fabric podcast. It's mostly Brits deeply appreciating the American soul and funk records that us yanks take for granted and have mostly forgotten about.

kenan, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 02:47 (ten years ago) link

If you like John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman you should try and find their BBC radio show, The Department.

Ed, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 05:53 (ten years ago) link

kenan I'm listening to On The Media's most recent show now, they're interviewing this guy and I am actually seeing red.

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 08:54 (ten years ago) link

actually? LITERALLY?!

(A friend and I have now taken to inserting the word "figuratively" anywhere that someone might be tempted to misuse the word "literally." As in, "Jeez traffic is so slow. It's figuratively going to take us all day to get there!")

kenan, Wednesday, 30 July 2008 10:27 (ten years ago) link

OH I totally forgot the resident advisor podcast

Haha subscribed to that one a couple days ago.

thanks, i was looking for a good bbc one

flopson, Thursday, 31 March 2011 13:11 (eight years ago) link

I am listening to the Quarter to Three podcast (which focuses on movies). it's absolutely ace.

Nathalie (stevienixed), Thursday, 31 March 2011 13:39 (eight years ago) link

You might like Radio Lab. This American Life sometimes uses stories from the show.

President Keyes, Thursday, 31 March 2011 13:46 (eight years ago) link

Oooh Radio Lab is GREAT!!! I love it too. Did you listen to the one which featured Linda Thompson (talking about going mute (?)).

Nathalie (stevienixed), Thursday, 31 March 2011 13:47 (eight years ago) link

yes, that was a good one

President Keyes, Thursday, 31 March 2011 15:17 (eight years ago) link

Here's what I listen to:

Caustic Soda
Skeptically Speaking
Skeptics Guide to the Universe
Geeks in Running Shoes
How to Do Everything
Running With the Pack
Run Run Live
The 3 Non Joggers

Rather obvious where my interests lie.

one month passes...

anyone got any good shit i should hear?

my interests:

history, general story american life type stuff, books and especially 20th century modernist type stuff, music i won't have heard, jazz or experimental or really anything at all, maybe comedy if it's good, plus ANYTHING ELSE.

have basically never really got into podcasts properly. been subscribing to some of the recommended ones upthread tho.

i like how compact they are—a few ideas in about 15 minutes, and then we're out

I havent listened to Ronson’s podcast & prob won’t

the Rialto Report is a good interview podcast with stars & directors of porn of yore by 2 consultants from HBO’s The Deuce. It’s pretty good.

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 6 June 2019 03:54 (one month ago) link

Re poetry podcasts R3's The Verb can be good. Does contain extended Ian McMillan: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006tnsf/episodes/player

Good cop, Babcock (Chinaski), Thursday, 6 June 2019 06:58 (one month ago) link

Can't imagine which would be more depressing, tales of '70s porn or tales of '10s porn.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Thursday, 6 June 2019 07:09 (one month ago) link

American poetry podcasts that are good include VS (aka Versus) and Poetry Off The Shelf.

Michael F Gill, Sunday, 9 June 2019 02:38 (one month ago) link

They mentioned it on a recent episode, I think it was a yacht or nyacht? Said they're doing ten more episodes so they hit 100 and then stop. Though they also hinted they'd do other things in the podcast format.

Lol 8 months later and they’re still putting out wpisodes

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Sunday, 16 June 2019 01:25 (one month ago) link

They’re up to 90 Y or N mini eps and they may hit 100 before their 100th episode proper

calstars, Sunday, 16 June 2019 01:26 (one month ago) link

Third episode is up!


Ned Raggett, Thursday, 27 June 2019 18:37 (three weeks ago) link

will listen!

the Michael Lewis podcast Against the Rules is pretty irresistible to me rn

My friend's son is recording a podcast about cheese. It's called Charlie's Cheese Chat, and it's the best. Here's the second episode. It's uncanny how well this 10 year old kid gets the rhythms of grown-up podcasts down:

Probably in a minority here and Not a podcast but Have to recommend the 4 Extra rebroadcast of a great adaptation of a Mrs Henry Wood Melodromatic pot boiler; East Lynne. From back when radio 4 could expend seven hours of drama on moralising Victorian pulp fiction.


American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 15 July 2019 09:07 (six days ago) link

I have to say I like how actually doing a podcast has already made me more attuned to the finer points of recording and editing, as well as pacing in general — each episode is building on the last as I am able to drill down on certain points. I’m not saying we still can’t improve but it is happening!

Ned Raggett, Monday, 15 July 2019 13:28 (six days ago) link

I'm really not enjoying It Could Happen Here, but it's kept me riveted.

полезный идиот (Sanpaku), Thursday, 18 July 2019 15:08 (three days ago) link

That podcast was good enough that I checked out the host's other show Behind the Bastards, but it's that format I kind of hate where someone presents information and two other people crack dumb jokes.

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Thursday, 18 July 2019 15:21 (three days ago) link

Yeah, my friend really likes The Dollop, but the one time I gave it a shot it sounded like a Morning Zoo thing. Like, "Welcome back to the Dollop, my name is David ... AND I'M THE SQUEEGE!"

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 18 July 2019 15:50 (three days ago) link

Digging Abby Travis podcast right now: https://soundsoffpodcast.com - all LA punk luminaries, but the premise (Abby + friends walking around and doing stuff) has led to some incredible conversations. If anything just list to her and Exene walking around the City Of Orange farmers market, talking about her life prior to moving to LA and starting X. Also, don't miss the one with Kira Rossler where they walk around Hollywood and visit the Masque and the Canterbury.
