    Radiostar Network - Weekly improv comedy podcast, with a back catalogue of 150+ episodes. Recent shows have included Cthulhu cultists, a neurotic Prince Charming, and a giant egg sculpture with a human kidney inside. Full disclosure: I perform with these folks, so this is indeed a bit of shameless self-promotion.

    I have recently become a huge fan of the Overthinking it Podacast and its spin off These Fucking Teenagers. great deep analysis of pop culture as well as nerdy jokes. there comic book knowledge is a little light though.

    k, thanks for asking for podcasts, cuz that's almost all i listen to on the (needs a new headphone jack) ipod nowadaze.
    here goes:

    Tony C. Smith captains this amazing audio vessel through all types of Science Fiction. Amazing stuff.

    Right Where You Are Sitting Now
    Ken Eakins, DaddyTank & a host of others interview a virtual 'who's who' in the Subculture, Counterculture, Alternative, Occult, Underground Music. Daddytank picks the MySpaceHeros section of the show which is always a treat. Also in the same feed is their music show "Behind Closed Doors" which expands on the asskicking of MySpaceHeros.

    EscapePod&PseudoPod do an amazing job of delivering Science Fiction and Horror (respectively) in the short fiction format. Always great stuff.

    RebelFM is a videogame podcast I listen to because I am learning how to make videogames, and i like them.

    Spark is a CBC Radio show about technology and culture. Not a gadget show.

    Quirks & Quarks is another CBC (just like the BBC only with more hockey, bacon, beavers, Maple syrup, etc.) Radio show featuring science news.

    Search Engine is a former CBC Radio show that went indie and then got picked up by TVO. The podcast that predicts the present. Host Jesse Brown and guests explore the Internet's impact on politics and culture.

    Those are the main ones...
    Let me know what you think.

    The Bugle
    "Audio newspaper for a visual world" John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman [both very funny] present this weekly news/satire for The Times Online. There's a back catalogue of 113 editions now and the latest:

    want to hear extracts from George W. Bush's memoirs? Listen in...

    The Vote Now Show
    Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis of The Now Show are covering the month leading up to the British election. They've done 3 episodes a week for the last 3 weeks with 1 week to go...

    A weekly show of extremely loud and nasty stuff, like being molested by a particularly attractive rhino:

    DJ Senator (Venom Inc) - Future Dark Technologies (live on

    Recorded live on 2010-04-18 15:00:13 - (110.3 MB)

    Sod's law, this one starts off very tamed- no arsebleeding. However, it picks up after a bit.

    A bit of a shame that the podcast feed contains a lot of very tedious crap, and you can't just subscribe to the FDT show on its own. However, you can download it yourself on its own, and it is well worth a listen most weeks.

    Mudd Up! with DJ /rupture via WFMU
    New bass and beats plus live guests (musicians, DJs, poets) and an ear for the global south. Cumbia. Dubstep. Gangsta synthetics. Sound-art. Maghrebi. International exclusives.
    He's an intelligent guy, talks about aping culture, sound, and architecture alongside the music. Did a smart article about Autotune for Wire a while ago?

    I'm a fan of Bad Buddhist Radio, he's entertaining and has some interesting non-mystical ideas about Buddhism. I'm not a Buddhist, but I like what he has to say.

    Hey Warren, if you’re looking for new podcasts, might I recommend mine?

    I kind of owe it to you anyway. I am a comedian in Karachi, Pakistan and I’m writing a novel called “How I Became a Suicide Bomber”. It’s a fictional autobiography of the world’s worst suicide bomber. Before I started writing it, I was thinking of what you were originally doing with “Listener” (your tragically lost-in-the-computer-crash novel). I remember you experimented with the idea of writing as a performance art. So I am trying the same here.

    Every week, I record around 5 minutes worth of the novel-in-progress and upload it as a podcast. In terms of writing I am maybe a couple of episodes ahead of the audio feed. The challenge is, since it is being made public as it’s being written, I have to commit to whatever decisions the character makes or whatever decisions I make as a writer. It’s got a decent sized following in Pakistan already and am getting alot of nice emails from people abroad now too.

    You can listen to it on-line before committing it to your iTunes subscription at It’s going chronologically, so just start with the 1st episode if you want to risk trying it.

    I also highly recommend WTF with Marc Maron, Hardcore History and The Bugle.

    I only get one podcast regularly: the Mayo/Kermode film reviews on 5live. Very entertaining, and it gets you to see films you wouldn't normally go for.

    Whoops yes, sorry! I was meaning to delete it from the blog after I saw I could also post it here. Then I realized too late that I can't delete it from the blog comments (obviously!). Now I feel like an over-enthusiastic arse.

    By the way, I might have mailed a print out of this post to your house as well as put up fliers around greater England.

    The Best Show on WFMU with Tom Scharpling. The absolute best (aside from the Jon Wurster segments).

    I clicked the page and read the descriptions. I'm pretty sure I'll never listen to that. But thanks.

    I listen to a lot of podcasts, mostly comedy/stand-up related.

    Never Not Funny - Comedian Jimmy Pardo's podcast
    WTF - Comedian Marc Maron's podcast
    Jordan, Jesse, Go! - Jesse Thorn's podcast
    Word Balloon - John Siuntres' comics podcast

    I am very pleased to find so many WTFeteers over at Whitechapel... I love Maron's point of view and his comments on politics and culture.

    (still on this WTF/Whitechapel fan overlap note, here's episode 42 from January, where Marc gave a break to interviewing comedians and went to Seattle to visit Fantagraphics and chat with Peter Bagge)
