What Podcast Are You Listening To...


Fellow Traveller

Steve and Corey speak with Ted Chiang about his recent story collection "Exhalation" and his inaugural essay for the New York Times series, Op-Eds from the Future. Chiang has won Nebula and Hugo awards for his widely influential science fiction writing. His short story "Story of Your Life," was the basis of the film Arrival (2016). Their discussion explores the scientific and philosophical ideas in Ted's work, including whether free will is possible, and implications of AI, neuroscience, and time travel. Ted explains why his skepticism about whether the US is truly a meritocracy leads him to believe that the government-funded genetic modification he envisages in his Op-Ed would not solve the problem of inequality.

I actually don't really know what a podcast is...🤷‍♂️
Simply put, a podcast is talk radio, but on demand.

It’s a series of spoken, audio episodes, often focused on a particular topic or theme, like shaving, cycling, politics, or startups. You can subscribe to the show with an app on your phone and listen to episodes whenever you like on your headphones in the car or through speakers.

I love James Bond Radio, Johnny Vaughan on Radio X and Shat the Movies. Great podcasts. Listened to podcasts for years, especially in the car.

Rebel force radio, Star Wars in Character, Rumble by Michael Moore, bbc5's Fighting talk with Colin Murray.

So I am a huge Star Wars fan and have been listening to Rebel force radio for around 10 years. It is a very informative and funny show on all the different aspects and include discussions with actors of the franchise.

Star Wars in character, is basically 4 friends who pick a background character of the Star Wars universe and discuss everything about them. I first found this podcast when I was in hospital several years ago. This show is funny, witty, vulgar and informative and can stray away from what the topic is but that is the fun.
They also do charity work for "toys for tots" and include Star Wars film & voice actors into the show.

BBC5's Fighting talk with Colin Murray.
An hour of sporting punditry, humour and entertainment. Where several guests take part trying and points are awarded for well-informed comments and passion but deductions for nonsense or lacking conviction.

Michael Moore - Rumble.
Academy Award-winning film-maker and political provocateur Michael Moore offers his subversive and humorous take on the issues of the day and talks to a wide range of people from comedians and politicians to the people who’ve tried to kill him.

Listening to Micheal Moore is like your TV being stuck on the Oprah.

Have no time for podcasts, to busy enjoying the end of my life
