Another couple good places to find podcasts are at PocastHost.com, or PodcastAlley.com. PodcastAlley uses a "rating system", and PodcastHost has a searchable database and aggregated text, right on the site.

Grab iPodderX Lite. It'll just grab the feed when you subscribe. I'm still in the trial (and error) stage with it, but it seems to work for people. Word Press is sometimes a bit fiddly with these things (and I'm using a non-WP template which makes XML a problem to read sometimes). A new one up Sunday.

Guymauve (Guymauve), Monday, 4 April 2005 17:12 (fourteen years ago) link

This actually looks like it would be kind of fun to do, as my friends are permanently in need of Taste Correction and this would allow me to save somewhat on CDRs. But isn't bandwidth kind of prohibitively expensive? I mean, you're basically serving a gigantic MP3, right?

our club is doing podcasts soon, probably me. I'll post here when we do our first one.

The Rock n Roll Geek show.
Plays mostly the kind of rock that's not fashionabl;e at the moment plus some punk stuff but mostly talks. He's a really genuine guy and the honesty of it, the lack of shiny gloss bullshit makes it great.

i can't follow the rapid-fire german enough to understand like, any single entire sentence, but annik rubens' podcast show sounds really entertaining.

Josh (Josh), Tuesday, 5 July 2005 08:47 (fourteen years ago) link

I've now made 14 podcasts, ranging from 30 minutes to an hour, in locations from Macau and Japan to Lisbon, Edinburgh and New York. Basically, everywhere I go (and I'm lucky enough to travel a lot) I mumble into an old Fujifilm F601 and make a new radio programme documenting the sounds and atmospheres of where I am.

Super Cub (Debito), Thursday, 4 August 2005 11:42 (fourteen years ago) link

No. Podcasting is one of the most disappointing memes of the decade, along with "war chalking"

I can't go a single day without someone saying "podcasting" but I can't find a single podcast worth listening to.

mikef (mfleming), Thursday, 4 August 2005 23:14 (fourteen years ago) link

there are plenty of excellent podcasts, but im having a hard time finding good non-music programs. the two im subscribed to havent been updated in months

fe zaffe (fezaffe), Thursday, 4 August 2005 23:35 (fourteen years ago) link

Exactly. Of the six I posted above, I think only three are still being updated. A lot of them seem to give up once they realise it's not going to make them the next John Peel.

James Mitchell (James Mitchell), Friday, 5 August 2005 02:26 (fourteen years ago) link

are there any old john peel broadcasts available as podcasts? i would love to hear some of those

gem (trisk), Friday, 5 August 2005 02:27 (fourteen years ago) link

I just got my husband set up with this stuff--got him a little flash-based mp3 player he can take to the gym after he syncs up his shows. I put ipodder on his computer and subscribed him to Al Franken's show on Air America and NPR's On The Media--he's a big talk radio fan. So I can't really speak to any music stuff, haven't played around with it enough.

teeny (teeny), Friday, 5 August 2005 16:46 (fourteen years ago) link

This one by Digiki has been getting some press recently, despite only having one installment so far: http://www.maudevintage.com/castellane/digiki/polypunk/polyfeed.xml ( actual file is http://www.maudevintage.com/castellane/digiki/polypunk/POLYPUNK001.mp3 )

Hopefully he'll keep it up.

Listening to podcasts at work is better than listening to the same twenty prerecorded CDs our college radio station broadcasts over summer break.

Firesign Theater is GREAT - they're a classic surreal stoner baby boomer comedy troupe

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

James Mitchell (James Mitchell), Friday, 30 September 2005 21:59 (fourteen 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 (fourteen 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 (fourteen 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."

Amateur(ist) (Amateur(ist)), Saturday, 12 August 2006 06:03 (thirteen 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
Newsweek
New York Times Op-Ed
Slate
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.

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 (twelve 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

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.

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 (eleven years ago) link

And now I’m hooked on TRGMH. The Wrong episode was terrible, otherwise a great podcast. I’d like it if they tightened up the editing & spotlighted more of the music, esp when they point out a record’s great moments.

Just managed to make it 12mins into a This Album Got Me High episode and jesus it's awful. I hate the podcasts where it's just random people bullshitting for 10mins like we are interested in their friendly banter. This is my primary issue with podcasts. I don't like the nonsense at the start where they're just shooting the shit. Get to the fucking details immediately. I'm sure i'm alone in this because it seems nearly every podcast someone recommends requires me thinking the inside jokes of the hosts and their witty banter is fucking hilarious. I don't. I won't. I'm on some Dragnet shit. Just the facts ma'am.

This is my primary issue with television shows. I don’t like the nonsense at the start where they’re just sitting around a curved table discussing celebrity gossip of the day. Just get to the fucking dead bodies and clues immediately.

Speaking as a fan of banter oh wait. Our episodes have maybe a minute or two of that at the start and separately at the end, because why not, but otherwise we try to talk about what we're there for.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 22 October 2019 16:16 (two days ago) link

podcasts are just having friends simulators for some people so banter is popular. i mean there's lots of popular podcasts which are literally just banter

Seany's too Dyche to mention (jim in vancouver), Tuesday, 22 October 2019 16:17 (two days ago) link

Ha I was just listening to a recent That Record Got Me High a couple days a go and thought to myself how, by podcast standards, on-topic those guys tend to stay during the intro section. Lowered expectations, I guess.

tobo73, Tuesday, 22 October 2019 16:48 (two days ago) link

Clearly my position is the minority opinion. I'm listening to Heavyweight right now, and it does not suffer from the pointless banter, though it does have some back and forth before each episode gets to the subject.

xp, maybe I should push through minute 12. It was the REM Reckoning episode. On a related note, I can't get through a single R U Talking About REM episode. Those guys are the worst. Maybe someone will edit the jokes and banter out and just keep the information.

brotherlovesdub, Tuesday, 22 October 2019 16:53 (two days ago) link

any suggestions for history podcasts? have been working my way through Mike Duncan's excellent Revolutions podcast, similar shows would be appreciated. also we are coming up on our 50th episode of the 78Man Presents show, never imagined we'd get anywhere near this many!

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 22 October 2019 16:57 (two days ago) link

xxpost Two I've enjoyed since they both started have been Tides of History (and its predecessor The Fall of Rome) and The Age of Napoleon.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 22 October 2019 16:57 (two days ago) link

Wittenberg to Westphalia, Literature and History, Inward Empire, The Human Circus, The Constant, When Diplomacy Fails are good

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Tuesday, 22 October 2019 17:02 (two days ago) link

Clearly my position is the minority opinion.

Nope. The 'shooting the shit inside jokes harhar amirite fellers' intros to lots of podcasts put me off, too. (and the laughter, sooo much laughter that it just so off-putting).

99% of the people are a drag to listen to. This was the case before podcasts arrived, and has not changed.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 22 October 2019 17:05 (two days ago) link

yes listened to History of Rome last summer, really excellent stuff! I also read his book The Storm Before The Storm which is good but is lacking the jokes/wit. It probably wouldn't have worked very well on the page so I can understand why he left that stuff out, but it makes the book more dry as a result.
thanks Ned, Tides of History/Fall of Rome looks like exactly the sort of thing I am looking for.

The Ravishing of ROFL Stein (Hadrian VIII), Tuesday, 22 October 2019 17:17 (two days ago) link

thanks Ned, Tides of History/Fall of Rome looks like exactly the sort of thing I am looking for.

The original Fall of Rome series was just him and it's a classic 'dude with a mic' approach, some flubbed bits in the edit, etc. But Wyman knows his stuff and it built a following -- he had a Deadspin series (of all things) going at the time, I think through the Concourse specifically -- and it got smoother as it went, then it transformed into Tides and he started working with a production team. He does pretty good interviews as well; a number of recent episodes are just that, talking with a variety of academics and writers.

Age of Napoleon is swell, similar vibe to Revolutions imo

I'll have to keep that in mind! But yeah, it's been an absolutely essential example of living up to the title -- while Bonaparte is the focus, he did an extensive job in scene-setting even before introducing him, and all the various side divergences and explorations have been amazing. Very glad I was all in from the first episode.

I'm pretty sure at one point they briefly discuss what other bands they could discuss after they are done and the one other band they found that they were both really into at one point was radiohead, so they will probably do that, just probably with an even worse title.
