Hi guys,

We have recently started a podcast looking at German football from a Scottish perspective, and released our 15th episode last week. This week we have commentator Derek Rae joining us for a special guest episode - 

 

It would be great if you could keep an eye out for the episode coming out on Thursday, and any follows on Twitter and Instagram @germanfitbawpod or likes on Facebook would be appreciated. We're really looking forward to recording this and hopefully you'll have a listen.

 

I'll be interested in this, will give it a go.  When you say German football does that mean you'll cover outside the top flight as well? ☠️

I've found Adam Buxton's latest run really enjoyable, with his Nile Rodgers episode probably the best of them (McCartney was also a great listen). I only started listening a year or so ago, so I've now gone back to the start and am working my way through the old ones.

Q Clearance is a good listen. Would also recommend QAnon Anonymous. Their episode following the storming of the Capitol was pretty much essential listening.

I honestly don't think Adam Buxton has put out a bad podcast. Even if the guest isn't too interesting he always seems to get the most out of the interview. His yearly Christmas pods with Joe are one of my highlights of festive entertainment.

Yea, QAA is a good listen. They put the effort in as well with the shoe leather reporting.

There are so many good ones. Billy Connolly was a good guest. Adam didn’t really know much about him and there’s a real joy to be had from hearing the genuine delight from Adam discovering how funny Billy is.

I really enjoyed the Robbie Williams one - AB was obviously worried he had slagged him off in the 90s but they got on really well.

Agree with the poster earlier who said he hasn't really done a bad one. The Christmas special is always a highlight.

I listened to Ramble Book the other week and it was also excellent.

Not sure if Tim Ferriss has been mentioned already in this thread. I usually listen to his stuff when it relates to start up businesses, people management or high performance. For background, he's a multi-millionaire, successful start-up founder and investor, and does a lot of sports etc. A bit of what Americans call a jock. Mid forties with bundles of cash and no serious relationship or kids. That kinda person.

The episode linked below blew my mind for a few different reasons. Spoilers incoming... basically he reveals on this episode that he suffered childhood sexual abuse, and that when he first mentioned this a few episodes earlier about a third of his male friends got in touch to say they had experienced the same. The episode is interviewing some eminent psychologist I've never heard of before but whose main theory called Internal Family Systems made total sense to me when described on the podcast. Then Tim Ferriss actually undergoes an IFS therapy session live on mic. It's absolutely bonkers. Then they close by discussing how IFS therapy is very similar to what a lot of people experience in psychedelic mental health treatments.

Probably sounds a bit inaccessible from what I've put above but it's not. The whole podcast is aimed at men in their 20s and 30s with no real background in anything that's being discussed. Highly recommended.

That was the first one I listened to, then the Jeff Goldblum one from around the same time.

Yes, I thought Williams came across really well in that as well. Buxton is excellent at getting in to people's insecurities and discussing them in a really nice way, I thought that episode showed that off perfectly.

The one with McCartney was brilliant. Generally found him to be quite dull in interviews just due to him constantly being asked surface level 'what it was like being in The Beatles' type stuff but i think that was probably the best interview i've heard him do. Something weirdly fascinating and humanising about hearing one of the most famous and iconic musicians ever talk about watching Storage Hunters and Mock the Week. 

Aside from the Connolly interview, his ones with Bob Mortimer are very good too.

Spotify have just released a new one.

Renegade:Born in the USA.

Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen put the world to rights. First few episodes are about race. Very interesting and well worth a listen just to hear Obama swear and tell the story of how be broke his school pals nose for using a racial slur.

Grates a little bit to hear Obama wax lyrical about problems that, on the face of it at least, he did little about in his eight years as President. Although, I'm well aware it's not that simple of course.

Anyway, it's quite a thing to listen to these two giants shooting the shit. Look forward to seeing what other topics they cover.

The Brazilian Shirt Name is one of my favourite Podcasts at the moment.
They pick a game and discuss football, music and social history of the time.
The most recent one is the 1964 FA Cup Final in tribute to the Saint.IMG_1614795572.968796.jpg

Jools and Jim (Vic Reeves and Jools Holland). A bit contrived and a bit slow in the first couple of episodes but they’ve found their stride. Ask people about car journeys as a kid as little more than an entry point into Vic going off on a tangent.
