Pimp your podcast listening.

Over the last month, I have pimped by mobile phone podcast experience. Having used a fruit based product as my mobile for some years, I was happy to see the native Podcast app arrive with a recent upgrade. It has the advantage of being free (never underestimate the power of free in any marketing plan).

But I now prefer the heterogeneous world Android, so I have spent some time choosing an App. The best review I could find was on The Verge  so my choice is Shift Jelly’s Pocket Cast. If you don’t want to pay for an App then I think Stitcher is the best option. Now it’s just a matter of which casts? Here is my somewhat eclectic list:

From the BBChttp://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/radio

  • In Our Time – has an extra bit on the end
  • Thinking Allowed
  • The Media Show
  • Front Row
  • Kermode & Mayo’s Film review – much more than just a repeat of the radio show

From The Economisthttp://www.economist.com/audio-edition

  • Editor’s Picks

From Penguinhttps://www.penguin.co.uk/articles/book-talk/

  • Penguin Podcast with Richard E Grant

Independent –  http://www.stitcher.com/stitcher-list/all-podcasts-top-shows

  • The Journal by Kevin Rose
  • The Pen Addict
  • Cortex

  1. Podcast and Radio Addict on Android is free, I’ve been using it for over a year, worth taking a look.

    The CBC (Canada) “IDEAS” podcasts are interesting, though need a bit of filtering (there are about 4-6 a week and I get about a 50% hit rate)
