    TV or Radio?

    Premier Icon footflaps

    They are just mp3s if you download them via iTunes.

    If you have an iphone, use the Podcast app to download them.

    EDIT: Here they are as mp3s:


    There’s a download tab which links to an mp3
    Download 26MB (right click & “save target as / link as”)


    I use the Downcast app to do this. Think the free Podcast app does similar though, as above.

    Would like to take some BBC friday comedy and Infinite monkey cage with me on holiday but the “download” appears to be just a stream of saved material. Does it not save onto my machine/ipod for later non wifi/internet enjoyment?

    If so how do you do it?

    Ah, simple when you know how. Did it through iTunes. Was going round in circles with BBC website.

    So got some infinite monkey cage, a series of Humph in Sorry I haven’t a clue and some Armstrong and Miller, what else should i get?

    Not BBC, but the Hardcore History podcasts are excellent: thought provoking, in depth, and often cover bits of history that are relatively unknown in the UK.

    Long, though – the shortest episodes are around 1:30, the full series of episodes about the Khans last about 8 hours in total…


    In Our Time. Learn loads about topics that will never be even remotely relevant to your life. Ace.

    Premier Icon Rusty Spanner

    More or Less is a brilliant programme.
    Should be compulsory listening for schools.

    From Our Own Correspondent is a bit hit or miss, but usually superb.

    In Our Time is the real gem for me though – a great insight into history from those who know.
    Never boring, always enlightening.
    Best thing on the radio (apart from Fags, Mags & Bags).

    EDIT – Great minds etc Sam!


    Best thing on the radio


    In Our Time’s brilliant. As is the history hour.

    Why not download them directly through your iPod in the app? Mine are set to automatically dl. Also, the complete guide to everything and answer me this (although I don’t think you came here for recommendations 🙂


    Listen to a few listed above (Radio4 stuff)

    but also:

    If you like motorsport then Radio LeMans Midweek Motorsport is very good (covers F1, GT, NAscar, Indycar etc) Can take a few episodes to get all the in jokes but worth subscribing to. Also has lots of race reports and other indepth interviews.

    For some infantile type humour, The Bugle is worth a listen.

    Gareth Jones on Speed for some car stuff.

    Premier Icon Cougar

    If it’s available, Cabin Pressure is the best thing I’ve heard on R4 in years.

    Premier Icon MtbRoutes

    Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast


    More or Less
    Skeptics Guide to the Universe
    Answer Me This
    Eurosport Cycling Podcast
    Wired magazine
    Stuff You Should Know
    The Concert


    Dunno if it’s still available, but if you want some short ones (about five minutes each IIRC) to listen to I can highly recommend the “History of the World in 100 Objects” from a couple of years ago.
