I've discovered that podcasts are a great way to keep me entertained during my daily commute. I'm often not in the mood for music, but a bit of comic banter always goes down well, and helps shut out the awfulness of the underground.

I've enjoyed the Ricky Gervais podcasts (which should by rights be called the Karl Pilkington show) and must have looked like a loon this morning sniggering away to Adam & Joe. Does anybody have any other favourites they would recommend?

Mark Kemode's film reviews are on the Five Live page if you like that sort of thing.

Not sure if the UK version of iTunes carries any NPR programming from the States - I'd think they would, seeing as how we get Ad&Joe, Kermode and the rest - but there are several there worth checking out:

- Harry Shearer's "Le Show" is a grand 50min-hour of political commentary and satire.

- "Morning Becomes Eclectic" with Nic Harcourt is a fine music program that has really good guests often.

- "The Treatment" with Elvis Mitchell (film discussion) is worth a look; I'm not a fan of him as an interviewer, but he does often get great guests. Altman was on recently.

bit of a slowburn for me - at first i was expecting 'spinal tap'-like guffaws, but once you get over that and realise it's a fairly level-headed, intelligent "what's going on in the world?" conversation with the listener, it's very enjoyable. his coverage of the post-katrina nola flood political farrago has been fascinating.

related to the new orleans thing, florida-based producer/dj/musical nomad diplo (he of the m.i.a. collaborations) does a great show called 'mad decent worldwide radio' - including an astounding show from new orleans with various bounce/dirty south hip hop/new orleans brass musicians blended together in one musical message of defiance and human resilience.

radio clash started out as a bootleg/mashup podcast, but has grgown into something much more: tim presents excellent music from past present & future, talks passionately, treats the audience and the artists with respect (but not reverence), and does the odd on-the-spot report...

similarly bristol's wobcast grew out of the 'west of bastard' bootleg night, but now lumpy, andrewherring & juxtaposeur have developed the music policy a little wider - ragga jungle, breakcore, ambient touches, the odd cover version, more psychedelic stuff, indie classics, and, well, much much more - and enveloped it with thoroughly listenable banter about the music. a real treat cool.gif

and if you want pure mashup deliciousness, look no further than the weekly ramdom thoughts, hosted with aplomb by scott over in essex - meticulously selecting the best new boots as well as a few classics, and usually ending with a nice long slice of a bastard pop mix courtesy of guest dj's...

finally, another bb i'm on decided we'd start our own little radio station to keep each other amused... there's a bunch of us now each with our own shows, and we collect them all together on one - coolest radio. myspace music, bootlegs, film music, covers, breakcore, breaks, spoken word... a bit of everything really biggrin.gif

anyhow, i could bang on about loads more but my fingers ache, so i'll just mention a few and let you google them wink.gif

Yes, good point - anyone expecting "Tap" like shenanigans is going to be disappointed. But he's very passionate about covering stories with a depth they don't get treated in the mainstream press, humorous and otherwise. (The Katrina stuff is personal for him, he has a home in Nawlins.)
