    So far I've only signed up for Desert Island Discs (although 'for copyright reasons' they only play about 30 seconds of each musical choice), and the Radio 4 Friday Night Comedy one.

    Absolutely loads of them. I play them more than music when I'm out and about. Probably not many that would interest Moopy as they're very technology/theatre industry based. Media Guardian is a good weekly run down of the big media stories - it's often pretty funny and I love the presenters on it.

    Apart from the endless unlistened-to Learn Japanese ones I have, just Adam and Joe on 6Music. AMAZING

    Vanessa Feltz's weekly podcast from BBC London is seriously essential - love that woman.

    MORNING, LOVELY LISTENER

    Sildy dear, aren't you on the A&J bandwagon? I'm hoping someone can save the Xmas ones for me, I'm up to 8/12 but I'm going to have to disconnect my internet soon to move to the new place and I think I'll miss the last 4 :(

    I was yes, but I've had that little time for podcasts that I haven't bothered since they got back from their summer break.

    LOADS of podcasts. Most of them are movie based or BBC shows.

    One I'm particularly enjoying right now from the whole network I listen to (Simply Syndicated) is called Crimes Against Food.

    oh ELLIE, you do A&J don't you? Any chance you could keep hold of their last 4 Xmas ones until I get my internet back? :disco:

    I haven't listened to them in a few months but I still download and keep them all, so sure.

    As a few of you mentioned it, I downloaded Media Guardian, and it's great, isn't it? I know the main host is Matt Wells, but are the man and woman who were on this week (sorry, didn't notice either of their names, but I'm talking the podcast with Nigel Lythgoe as a guest) regular as well?

    It's great, isn't it?! This week's was especially good.

    It was Stephen Brook and Emily Bell on with Matt Wells this week. They're not on it every week but they are pretty regularly, Brooky in particular. The co-hosts are always very good though and I love how dry the whole thing is. Very funny and very consise and to the point.

    A&J often make me LOL on public transport. Very sad that they're taking a break from it, though I can take comfort in my decent backlog of their podcasts of the last few months.

    Last time they made me LOL on public transport was that thing they did at the end of one where Adam squashed a fairy :D

    Meet the Media Guardian gang HERE!

    Brooky and Janine Gibson are my favourites (though she's not on very often these days) but to be honest, they're all pretty quality.

    Ooh, now which one? Cause they're all varying degrees of fabulous.
