We've been using a blue snowball since starting. I went and bought a zoom h1n audio recorder to do stuff out and about but we've been so impressed by the quality on it that we've gone to that as default.

The next aim is to get individual mics and a mixer to name interview episodes better quality.

I got a Zoom H6 coz I had $400 burning a hole in my overdraft and I don’t regret that expense at all. It’s an amazing bit of kit. I would’ve liked to have bought Shure SM58 mics but we ended up going with something more cheap and cheerful and to be honest, I’m pretty happy with the results. We have a Behringer 12 track board that cost $80 and allows me to do mix minus for guests on Skype, and a cheap headphone preamp. I think the step up in quality is noticeable as my co-host tends to be louder than me and I now have two places where I can control that. In the mix and on the Zoom. I fucking love this. It doesn’t matter if anyone listens to it, I just love making podcasts. 

Fun fact, I do a Spongebob podcast with my step-daughter and last week it was the #1 downloaded TV & Film podcast in the Cayman Islands. It’s an odd wee life.

I really enjoy Mike Duncan's history podcasts - A History of Rome and Revolutions (https://www.revolutionspodcast.com/). I like the way he takes a historical topic and takes you from its start to end. Is there a podcast about Scottish history that does a similar thing? I've looked couldn't find one.

There aren't actually many books that do that, never mind podcasts.  Mackie or Oliver for the overview, Devine for the post-Union stuff and that's about it.  I haven't found anything that treats, say, Medieval Scotland, in the same way as the plethora of 'popular history' books on Medieval Engerland.

That section was an utter delight this week. As was the Homes Under The Hammer thing.

In other news, James Acaster is on Adam Buxton's podcast this week. Acaster isn't someone I thought I particularly liked, although I loved his Classic Scrapes book. Maybe I just don't like his face, because he was good the couple of times I'd heard him on RHLSTP and he's good again here.

The footballers homes bit on Athletico Mince this week was definitely not one to listen to on the train :lol:

"It's different.... but I like it!". I loved Sean Dyche's collection of antique machinery and motivational slogans like "If you haven't spewed up, you haven't turned up". Destroy and Exit was ace as well. Class.

Full Disclosure with James O'Brien is worth a listen. Guests this season have included Tony Blair, Ian Hislop, Steve Coogan and Pru Leith. He seems to be able to get through a fair amount in an hour - serious interviews but always in good humour. He's basically the hammer of the gammony, Brexity London cabbie types on his LBC show.

Thanks whoever recommended Jonathan Ross and his film one. It's a good length (oo'er) his guests are decent and it's not just fawning over the latest thing they've come on to flog.

Flew through “Caliphate”, by a New York times journalist. About isis and interviews someone who joined them and returned to Canada plus more general points on the group. Really enjoyed it and learnt a lot about just how organised ISIS appeared to be and how barbaric

What's it called?

We went to see the Broadway show last summer and it was absolutely brilliant - the soundtrack is probably my most listened to album on Spotify (it gets both kids in the bath and singing along)!!

It's the Spongebob Squarecast. You can find it most places you find podcasts.

cass pennant podcasts are good.

Can't agree at all, mate. Just seems like the old p***k in the pub who wants to constantly go on about his "glory days". 

He's a black George Kerr, essentially.

Charlotte Gainsbourg on the latest Adam Buxton. She has the foxiest voice I've ever heard. You could tell he was desperate to get to his question about her with the two big lads with erections in Nymphomaniac and tried so hard to play it cool until then.

Lol — I thought he did a great job. When he mentioned all the saucy stuff in the preamble, I wondered if he’d bring it up in the interview.

Most of the podcasts I listen to have already been mentioned.

Just looking through mine just now, one of the individual episodes that sticks out is the Chen Guangcheng episode in the now defunct 'In Their Own Words' Amnesty podcast. I haven't listened to it since but thought it was mental when I first listened. Basically, he's a blind lawyer and activist who escaped house arrest in China.

I love RadioLab. I've mainly been listening to their back catalogue. Hoping their newer stuff is as good. Not sure of all the episode names but the episodes about morals, Vietnam, Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, 23 Weeks 6 Days (abortion/child illness), Eye in the Sky (privacy/surveillance), Hurricane Katrina, and the political one where the old guy they were interviewing said he was going to murder someone are the best I can think of just now. Most are really good tbh.

Beyond the Grid for F1 interviews. This Football Life for football interviews.

I'm keeping an eye on the new Training Ground Guru podcast. They interview coaches/others involved in football management.

For comedy, The Bugle's back catalogue with Andy & Jon is still my go to.

I'm looking for a podcast on climate change/the environment if anyone has any recommendations.
