    I spend most of my work day on my own wiring up portable cabins so i have started listening to podcasts as i have grown bored of my usual music.

    The ones i am currently subscribed to are

    Mysterious Universe - A lot of nonsense about paranormal stuff including aliens, bigfoot conspiracies etc - i know most of it is bullcrap but it is entertaining and the presenters are pretty funny

    BBC Inside Science - talks about the latest science discovery and news, really interesting show and not to dry

    BBC radio 4 Friday Night Comedy - mostly political satire and comedy

    Wired podcast - not the best show, talks about technology and gadgets.

    Tech Fetish - bunch of guys talking nonsense mostly, something to pass the time


    So what do you listen to on a regular basis?

    This is Only a Test
    Adam Savage (Mythbusters) and the Tested crew talk about random stuff once a week. It's pretty good.

    99% Invisible
    A design podcast that tells the remarkable stories about the design of everyday stuff all around us. It's pretty awesome.

    Hello Internet
    CGP Grey (of youtube fame) and Brady Haran (Numberphile, Periodic Videos and more) talk about random stuff. It's pretty alright.

    This Week In Tech
    I haven't been keeping up with this lately. Who hasn't heard of this one, though, right?

    A Life Well Wasted
    This is a great video game podcast, but I think it's more or less over now. Either the guy lost interest or ran out of stuff to talk about. Olly Moss did posters for it too. So bummed that aren't more updates now.

    Hands down the best podcast ever is:
    Hardcore History
    Dan Carlin is an epic (his)story teller. Nothing comes close in my opinion. Only the past year is available and the rest is downloadable for a price.

    In Our Time
    this a Radio 4 show. A topic in Science, History, Philosphy or other is talked about with 3 top experts in the matter (usually university professors). No attempt whatsoever to dumb things down so be ready to rewind.

    Inside Health
    Another Radio 4 show. They pick a health topic and go around the NHS interviweing top experts. Really well done.

    Guardian Science Weekly
    Science show. Well done, and they cover most of the science news you need to be aware of.

    More or Less
    Debunking of statistical nonsense and headline abuses. Very funny.

    And plenty others, but these are a good start.

    I've always liked Kermode and Mayo's film reviews from 5Live, but I don't seem to find the time to ever listen to them, let alone all these other interesting suggestions.

    I've been listening to:
    On the town with the league of gentlemen, a 6 piece radio comedy.

    Could you recommend me something similar?
