Podcast recommendations

Dogg Catcher is my favourite podcast app - loads of customisation.

As for podcasts if you’re into film the Kermode and Mayo Film Review and Empire podcast are great.


Limetown, if you fancy something mysterious :slight_smile:

Some great recommendations above! Can confirm “No Such Thing as a Fish” and “My Dad Wrote a Porno” are fabulous.

  • This American Life is a really interesting podcast telling stories about everyday life.
  • Death, Sex and Money - A podcast looking at these taboos subjects with normal people and their stories or “celebrities”. The celebs are sometimes super American-centric but good anyway.
  • All Killa No Filla - Two British Comedians tell the story of a serial killer each episode. They get distracted and talk about their own lives a lot and they are incredibly funny.
  • Evil Genius - Russell Kane and a panel of guests discuss old celebrity legends and decide if they were evil or genius. Interesting and funny!

A limited run podcasts well worth a listen:

  • The Butterfly Effect - Jon Ronson investigates all the little things caused by porn becoming available online for free. From how it affects younger peoples first understanding of sex to how it can affect the performers themselves.
