Because they were absolutely crap.
So, please fire away with some recommendations if you have any.
Collings and Herrin - tres bien stuff. Adam and Joe too although it's better just to listen to the whole show on Saturday mornings methinks. And stuff.
then russell brand (i'm sure a bajillion people on here will slag this off, but i find it genuinely LOLsome)
and i'm not sure if you can still get it but Jarvis cocker's jarvcast was really good. i wish he'd do some more.
of using the words 'irony' and 'America' in the same sentence ever again.
Howard seems like a decent guy and was quite funny on Andrew Collin's Radio 4 show the other day but he also takes part in Mock The Week and thus he should die a terrible, terrible death. Jon Richardson is great though.
Also, really not, its rubbish and there's only two and its not even real podcast because it doesn't have a feed as I'm not 21st century enough or whatever so YER.
on XFM used to make me laugh. I recently deleted them though.
not for alex zane though.
more of the same A&J lolsome conversational goodness
and The Bugle from The Times - it's got John Oliver from the Daily Show on it.
Adam and joe: brilliant. Just properly brilliant. Just totally download it like now.
Russel howard + john richardson: yeah, as above, i doubt DiS people will like this because they're on 6music and don't like music as much as John Peel, but it's frequently hilarious.
Russell Brand: Yeah he's brilliant. I love him so much and his radioshow is brilliant too. The relationship he has with his co host is brilliant. They're like blood brothers and he used to by drugs for russell and had a threesome together and stuff. It's so nice and good.
The In Our Time ones are brilliant cos it's unedited and stuff and basically just the whole show.
And if you want music, La Blogotheque is excellent as expected. WHEEEEEE.
i already said that.
If you have the slightest interest in science, or even just things that are well produced, it's amazing. And you don't have to know much to enjoy it, it's not technical. The latest episode is about tampering with genetics etc. they featured this woman who is her own twin!!! (parts of her are from one embryo and parts of her are from another)
enough for pitchfork to do a feature on it.
I'll check some of these out at the weekend.
