Podcast Thursday

It's been a while since I did one of these, and there are three podcasts that I would like to bring to your attention.

  • Free Primates - Robin Ince, Prof Brian Cox, Simon Singh et al have taken their science based chatshow 'The Infinite Monkey Cage' on the road and as part of each stop they ask for questions from the audience. This mini podcast rounds up the questions that got missed for lack of time and gives them answers ranging from the serious to the sarcastic. The sound quality on the first one is a little ropy, but stick with it and listen to all of them.
  • Film Music Roundtable - The BBC Philharmonic Orchestra are going to be performing a selection of film music in a live show on the 10th of June, and so a panel consisting of Mark Kermode, Andrew Collins, Paloma Faith, Richard Wigley and conductor Robert Ziegler was assembled to debate the finest film scores of the last fifty years. Some fantastic bits of horse trading, impassioned debate and some truly evocative clips of the choices to listen to. You can read more about it on Andrew Collins blog, but listen to the show first to avoid spoilers.
  • As It Occurs to Me - You know I am going to keep plugging this until every single one of you out there has downloaded this. Quite simply the funniest and most inventive comedy show around, not to mention the most obscenely scatological and borderline libelous too.
