Any recommendations for any good ones?

I'm currently subscribed to about 20 of podcasts, although most of them either seem to have stopped or only have new stuff every 6 months.

As there are thousands of them, I'm sure there is plenty of hidden gems out there. So any recommendations?

I'll start you all off with a football one: Baker and Kelly have started a new podcast.

My faves are The All Day Breakfast Show (Which is currently on hold until whatever problems they are having are resolved) & Russell Brand.

the Times Sounds one can be quite good depending upon the featured artist.

Other than that the majority tend to be a bit hit and miss.

Hopefully of them jumping off a very tall building, with digital quality sound of them splatting on the floor!

He's not that popular on here but I used to get the weekly Chris Moyles podcast, not updated it since I got my new laptop though.

Also, in terms of comedy, there was a quality one doing the rounds up here (some guy in his bedroom was making them), called Limmy's World of Glasgow, a bit like a version of Little Britain set in Glasgow. He got signed up by the BBC Comedy Unit on the strength of his work (there was an article on the BBC website about it a few months back which alerted my attention to it in the firstr place!)

Heathen! Their show on 5 Live has not been matched - they were superb together, more for the proper football-fan daftness of much of their stuff... just the sort of stupid nonsense we'd all blether on about in the pub. Some of their discussions which had me in stitches included:

* A "Tall & Terrible v. Short & Aggressive" match (you had to phone in with suggestions... I think the former team had 11 Ormondroyds at one point)

* Stupid names for Sunday League football teams (A Chemical Academicals and an Old Fallopians - the latter for a team of Gynaecologists - jump to mind)

* Daftest musical instruments taken into a football ground (there was a non-league side - Hayes, possibly - where the grand piano from the local pub used to get taken in for some half time entertainment).

It was proper, daft footy banter from two boys who are clearly passionate about the game to their marrow - not the sort of bland, ersatz, Premier$hite obsessed pap you get on 5 Live nowadays by a load of corporate wannabes who know how to trot out all the "right things".

Rant over.

Top post.

6-0-6 under Baker and Kelly was an institution. Most of its presenters since (Spoony, Mellor, Littlejohn, Green) should be institutionalised.

Indeed. Add loz & I to the list of Baker & Kelly fans. I'm now downloading the podcasts and can't wait to listen to them. Bloody hell I was almost obsessed by their show at one point. Even had a webpage dedicated to cracking the mystery of Joanne & her beaus....

The Guardian Unlimited football podcast is absolutely great. I'm a big James Richardson fan, and as he presents it's well worth listening to. The other people on the pod are good and all.

Also, as said earlier, the Russell Brand podcast is spectacular.

Well, I previously never touched podcasts other than the SUFC one but I'll give some of the above a go. Well done viral marketers.
