Chasing Scratch.  You dont need to be a golfer, triathlon addiction well qualifies you for it.

I went - it was good! I think Anna drank at least three glasses of wine while on stage. I'm glad they did about 45 minutes of other stuff besides the podcast - made it a bit better value.

Tranny HPT Pete (Pete Clifford coach at HPT) has laaunched his first podcast. Im sure he would love you to have a listen and give some feedback .  https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/passion

I'll be interested in this too.  Starting to listen to old tri ones while walkin' the dog, but could use some more.  Need to get some decent bluetooth buds too!

Over here in the UK, the two I always listen to are: - 

The Kickabout .... Johnny Vaughan and The Woodsman doing whatever they can do to not talk about sport!

The Elis and John Podcast .... two blokes talking shite on a Saturday afternoon. Very, very clever...

Oooh, thanks will check that out.

BIG fan of UK comics. 

 

What is it with Podcasters and whiney voices. I am struggling through a few of these. The guests are hit and miss a bit, but Herring is painful.

ABC's Conversations with Richard Fidler is very interesting. He's a great interviewer - very engaging and knowledgeable.

Yeah I have the ABC on at work so hear them every day. 

 

Judging by the interview from the above podcast with Doug Anthony Allstars, I think Fidler is better off doing conversations.

I love him! But he is a bit like marmite.

A couple of the best ones to listen to would be: 

152 - Armando Iannuci

149 - Ed Byrne

127 - Dawn French

114 - Tim Minchin

94 - David Mitchel

90 - Eddie Izzard

88 - John Finnemore

79 - Al Murray

18 - Stephen Fry

That would be my top 9 and I've listened to them all!

No Such Thing as a Fish - ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT

Finally got onto this pod, very, very good stuff. The best bit about finding them late is that there are hundreds to catch up on. 

I did all of S***Town (from Serial) on the trip up and back to Port. very good stuff.

New weird one... All Killa No Filla.

Two British comedians talking about serial killers... absolutely fascinating and quite funny (without being weird).

Just a tip, don't give somebody you've just met a lift home from a mate's birthday with that playing in the car without an explanation... she refused to tell me where to drop her off exactly and just said "Here's fine" in the middle of nowhere... it was only later I realised that jumping into a middle of a podcast about Shipman isn't exactly normal.

I am now 300 odd episodes into The Dollop, an American history podcast performed by 2 comedians.

Have done several tours of Australia and regularly get guests to their live shows, including Will Anderson frequently.  Have not listened to any other podcast since I got onto these and about to start episode 302!!!

The debrief - Dave O’Neill, chats to comedians on drive home from gigs.

The moth - strangers get to tell a weird/funny story on an open mike.

The guardian long reads - political / interesting long articles by journalists 

The cycling podcast - very good listen during the grand tours

In our time BBC - Good brain food on history or science

Dan Carlin rise of the khans - amazing 5 part series on rise of genghis khan. Holy crap he ruled the world!

Head room by James Valentine - best bits of his radio show and Good light hearted chat which is funny.

Download this show - tops pop culture, science and tech podcast by Marc Fennell

A couple more new discoveries to add to the list:

This Paranormal Life - Two Irish lads ripping apart "paranormal" activity. Funny and interesting!

The Beef and Dairy Network - This starts to get into the seriously surreal so only listen if you like weird comedy. It's a parody podcast purporting to be about the beef and dairy industry in the UK. Weird but funny!

Page 94, The Private Eye Podcast - New series just started.

Do you think Chris Dawson is going to the Big House?

Come on, am I the only one listening to "Teachers Pet"?  - Sydney, Northern Beaches, Cromer High School, Rugby star twins? No Trannies insider info on this?

On a day when I really needed a laugh, coming home from Snoo Yurties funeral I listened to Richard Fidlers Conversation with William McInnes. 

Wife was worried about my ability to drive due to the hysterical laughter and tears rolling down my cheeks. 

If you love a good Aussie yarn it’s unmissable

F'in A, F'in A.

Dean Jones one was awesome...so was danny green.  every australian should listen to the jack jones one,

gillies one, just awesome

I can't believe I missed this back in 2017 from the Dwarf. I'm very late to the party but this podcast is absolute freakin gold. Listened to gillies one first. Then Cadel and Luc Longley. Quality interviews, Howie has said he's after positive stories about people he admires but doesn't get too fanboy on them, still asks some really good q's. Gives them right to post-edit so they seem to open up and not be too guarded. Loving it

I am listening to it at the moment and it's disturbing on a number of fronts. Domestic violence, the disappearance of a well-liked woman, the teachers roles in student's lives, Police inaction.

Sadly, I think Dawson has dodged this all of his life and will continue to do so.

The police finished their dig yesterday with no luck apparently. 

Headley was on the radio yesterday saying the police with all the new leads and evidence are still very confident of putting together a solid circumstantial case. 

Interesting timing that another high profile case is back in the news, that of Kellie Lane who was convicted of killing her two day old daughter purely in circumstantial grounds.

Newcomer to podcasts, but have gotten into Small Town Murder.  Couple of comedians talking about deaths in various small towns (has to be under 35,000 popn to qualify).  Quite long episodes as most go a touch over 2 hours, really impressed with the amount of research they do and learnt a bit about the various legals issues, particularly around death sentences.  Mostly US towns, but have gone to Australia, Canada and UK as well for cases.  Really seems to be some dumb persons out there trying to get away with these murders, loved one episode on a murder from the early 90s when the murderer confessed when they were told the photocopy machine was a lie detector

Almost going to miss my long commutes just as I found podcasts...

Heard that and I think that there are so many parts to this which are loosely connected, the only way he'll go down is if he confesses (unlikely), they find a body (again), they try a trial based on circumstantial evidence (risky) or someone shops him (again, unlikely as they are so close knit and are approaching an age where health usually beats them).

The NSW Police Department don't come out of this in any way covered in glory and neither do the Education Department.

I remember there were a couple of teachers at my school who disappeared in the middle of term as they were having inappropriate relationships with students .... but nothing like this! The 70s and 80s were a different time!

The DPP have behaved atrociously - I cant believe that what they call evidence was actually  unverified statements from the suspect - "shes used her credit card since" or "friends have seen her" - that police recorded as evidence - both considered reasons why they didn't prosecute. Sounds like everyone wanted to be mates with Chris and Paul cos they were top blokes so everything they said was gospel.
