Podcasts - making each walk more enjoyable

These are making my world go round at the moment… Currently I’m enjoying Bloomberg’s Foundering (their series on WeWork is pretty great), Adam Buxton’s ongoing series (the Ruby Wax one was pretty great) and Lost Notes. What else should I be looking out for…

Funniest podcast I’ve heard in a while is Kim Noble’s Futile Attempts. Almost like Blue Jam meets Nathan For You. Really brilliant, and has lovely sound design. Buxton makes an appearance in it too.

Holly Herndon and Matt Dryhurst’s Interdependence podcast has some pretty interesting episodes.

Dogpatch by Dante Carfagna and Jon Kirby is my favorite music pod. A great place to start is the first episode, “Lizards on Deck.” I also love the Three 6 Mafia epi, “Do Not Flodge,” among others.

Really enjoyed the Chilly Gonzales episode on Tiga’s podcast. Such an extraordinary person. With beautiful insights on music (Chilly that is, not the other dude)

Agreed! Genuine laugh out loud stuff.

I was at a seminar in my research department where they presented their work, really interesting approaches and perspectives on voice synthesis and the music industry.

Enjoying the Carhartt Relevant Parties podcast.
Chal Ravens extended conversations with label heads from Stones Throw, Public Possession, PAN, Ghostly etc

Also - lockdown is a fine time to delve into the surreal majesty of Bob Mortimer’s Athletico Mince. Don’t be put off that it’s meant to be about football - if yer not a football fan. It left that behind about 3 years ago.

One for the longer walk - 2 hours of the inimitable Luke Una!

The Bobby Gentry episode was fantastic!
