I was asked recently what podcasts I listen to, so in alphabetical order…

  • Above & Beyond: Group Therapy (iTunes link) – Weekly 2 hour mix show, highlighting the finest in trance. Great for getting through boring tasks at work. We all have them!
  • Accidental Tech Podcast (iTunes link) – Relatively new technology (especially Apple) podcast featuring Marco Arment, Casey Liss and John Siracusa. Can go deep on topics but really enjoyable so far.
  • All About Android (iTunes video link) – Weekly show that features news and app’s from the world of Android. Great way of keeping up to date.
  • Answer Me This! (iTunes link) – Helen and Olly, answer me this….funny and rude – a must listen.
  • Before You Buy (iTunes video link) – Gadget review show which can be a bit hit and miss depending on reviewer.
  • CMD+Space (iTunes link) – A tech interview show from Myke Hurley. Had a great run of guests making this a really enjoyable show – Myke has real skill at getting the most out of his guests too.
  • The Crossover (iTunes link) – Hosted by Dan Benjamin and featuring a variety of hosts from 5by5 discussing…anything. Great episodes so far.
  • Fighting Talk (iTunes link) – Colin Murray hosts, 4 guests from the world of sport and 50 minutes of comedy gold.
  • Foundation (iTunes video link) – Kevin Rose interviews founders, entrepreneurs and business leaders in the tech community. Roughly a monthly release cycle, Rose has had access to some great people over the years.
  • Frame Rate (iTunes video link) – How to watch Internet TV and what’s worth watching right now. Tom Merritt and Brian Brushwood are great hosts.
  • Friday Night Comedy from BBC Radio 4 (iTunes link) – Topical news quiz featuring The News Quiz or The Now Show. Much prefer the News Quiz hosted by Sandi Toksvig.
  • In Beta (iTunes link) – Podcast on tech culture, open source and web apps. Not just a tech news podcast and some interesting topics covered.
  • Invisible Walls (iTunes video link) – Videogames podcast, a bit hit and miss but best of a bad bunch.
  • Mac Power Users (iTunes link) – Hosts Katie Floyd and David Sparks take one topic each week and discuss it in detail. Mac focussed and some great software links and tips to get the best out of your Mac.
  • MacBites (iTunes link) – MacBites is hosted by Elaine Giles and Mike Thomas and is that rare beast – a UK podcast! Informative but great fun at the same time – I love it. Weekly but with frequent breaks, their absence kicked me into doing DigitalOutbox.
  • Macbreak Weekly (iTunes video link) – A once classic podcast when Merlin Mann took part, stil watchable thanks to Andy Ihnatko and Rene Ritchie. Can go long…too long.
  • The New Disrupters (iTunes link) – Hosted by Glenn Fleishman this podcast focusses on how the economy is changing and each week he interviews a disrupter who is taking advantage of the new economy.
  • On The Verge (iTunes video link) – Monthly video magazine from The Verge, part gadget reviews, part chat show with great guests.
  • Shift Run Stop (iTunes link) – Much loved and much missed, a geek/comedy podcast hosted by Leila Johnston and Roo Reynolds. Tech, gaming, geek culture, UK based and two delightful hosts. And fun.
  • The Talk Show (iTunes link) – Hosted by John Gruber each week he discusses mostly Apple related subjects with a guest or two. Miss the old days with just him and Dan Benjamin.
  • Tech Weekly (iTunes link) – Well produced weekly tech podcast from the Guardian.
  • TEDTalks (iTunes video link) – TED talks, some great, some not so but always informative
  • This Week in Google (iTunes video link) – Jeff Jarvis and Gina Trapani discuss Google and cloud computing in general. Jeff is great – really refreshing voice.
  • This Week in TECH (iTunes video link) – Can go long and is very much dependant on the guests but is generally a good round up on the weeks tech news.
  • Top Shelf (iTunes video link) – David Pierce from The Verge looks at a variety of tech and gadget issues. New but good so far.
  • Unprofessional (iTunes link) – Dave Wiskus, Lex Friedman and guests discuss anything. Very good.
  • The Vergecast (iTunes video link) – Weekly tech and gadget show from The Verge.
  • The Wired.co.uk Podcast (iTunes link) – Weekly tech and science podcast from Wired UK that keeps getting better and better.

So thats what I currently subscribe too. I dip into others as they are linked or mentioned elsewhere and of course I couldn’t write a post on podcasts without mentioning DigitalOutbox in which you can hear my good self and friends ramble on about the weeks tech news but with a distinctly UK focus.

I love finding new great podcasts so if you think there is something I would like please leave a link in the comments.
