21 Essential Podcasts To Download Today 1 | Sodajerker On Songwriting One thing you learn from podcasts is that, freed from a cramped radio slot and faced with someone who actually knows a bit about their subject, almost everyone has a fascinating story to tell. Scouse songwriting duo Simon Barber and Brian O'Connor set up Sodajerker just as an excuse to talk to their heroes about what it's like to put songs together. But their natural inquisitiveness brings out the best in legends including Andy Partridge of XTC, Mike Stoller and Johnny Marr, making Sodajerker one of the most unusual and rewarding music podcasts. 2 | Stuff You Should Know There is, let's face it, a hell of a lot of stuff that we should know about but don't. 3 | Real Time With Bill Maher This one, meanwhile, is Have I Got News For You with a metric shitload more swearing plus a little more bite and viciousness than "Gosh, isn't Ed Miliband's voice funny?" 4 | Little Atoms 5 | Le Show With Harry Shearer Some voices were just born for radio. 6 | The Pod Delusion

The Pod Delusion | A Radio Show & Podcast About Interesting Things Hi gang, After nearly five years, we’ve decided to take a break from our weekly programmes here at The Pod Delusion. The reason for this change is fairly predictable: The two of us (James and Liz) are simply too busy – and are struggling to fit producing an hour of audio every week into a schedule where we also have other voluntary commitments, let alone a need to earn a living! So rather than let the show suffer as a result, we’ve decided the best thing to do is to take a brief pause. To reflect for a brief moment, it has been an incredible half decade. It has been amazing, but like I say, exhausting. We’d obviously like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported the show – there’s far too many contributors to name individually, but without your contributions the show would be nothing. Worry not though – this is very definitely not the end, and is more of a break to catch our breath. In the meantime, you can find me (James) on Twitter, YouTube, and my personal website.
