I have a confession to make, I like to listen to podcasts. I think they are a great way of keeping me updated on what is happening. I mainly listen to podcasts that deals with topics that interest me like football (soccer), literature, science and most of all politics. The Guardian, The Economist and the Times has got some good programs that I like to enjoy with my breakfast or evening meal or just for relaxing.
A show I listen to and enjoy quite much is called The Bugle. They describe themselves on SoundCloud as:
“John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman, the transatlantic region’s leading bi-continental satirical double-act, leave no hot potato unbuttered in their worldwide-hit weekly topical comedy show”
They’ve been doing this podcast since 2007 first at the Times Online and now as an independent pod. I used to listen to the Bugle a few years back but after a period where I didn’t listen to podcast very much I sort of forgot about the show. I rediscovered it on SoundCloud a little while back and I’m now a regular listener again (or Bugler as they call their listeners). And yes, John Oliver is that guy from the Daily Show.
I’m interested in finding more good podcasts so if anyone have any tips of good podcasts please let me know!
