    Alex Jones for a nightly dose of paranoia.

    started listening to a new podcast by the makers of This American Life. Called Serial.

    For folks that are into true crime and like the structure of the This American Life podcasts. 2 episodes released so far, have listened to one. really liked it. without giving anything away, about a teenage murder that took place in Maryland back in 1999. Boyfriend found guilty of killing girlfriend. Lot of loose ends/stones left unturned for a variety of reasons. apparently there are upwards of 10 episodes all dealing with that specific case.

    been meaning to give that one a shot alright, good to know it's good!
    • seconding Planet Money (featuring the lovely Zoe Chace. I LOVE YOU ZOE CHACE)
    • In Our Time
    • Startup Podcast (a podcast about starting a podcasting company o_O )
    • Radiolab. I always feel like i'm betraying This American Life when i put on Radiolab and one of the lads who presents it has a super creepy voice, but it's still brilliant. This episode is as good an introduction as any
    • The Moth. Storytelling in front of a live audience, sometimes has celebz. Always forget to listen but when I do remember it's usually fantastic.
    • If you're feeling ambitious there's the History of Philosophy without any Gaps which has been going on for years and will continue to do so (Socrates Plato Aristotle | History of Philosophy without any gaps
    • If you're feeling less ambitious the Philosopher's Zone is a good australian philosophy podcast
    • Entitled Opinions for massive amounts of smug but actually good arts and literature talk and the occasional baby-boomer centric "why the Doors are just the best band in the world forever" episode. His monologue episodes are particularly hilarious. Find a topic you're interested in from his archive and give it a whirl. Entitled Opinions (about Life and Literature)
    • The Infinite Monkey Cage. Not as funny as it thinks it is but hey everyone loves Brian Cox right???
    • The Bugle. Quality wise is all over the shop with John Oliver being such a celeb these days but still raises a good few laughs.
    • various books podcasts spread across bbc and all the newspapers. I've actually never found a books podcast that i thought was consistently essential listening. Anyone?
    • Also the RTE archive is great but I can't listen to any RTE podcasts because they're TOO FUCKING QUIET and I can't hear a word that's said if i'm cycling in traffic. SORT IT OUT RTE

    Is there a simple way to get notified when a favourite podcast is uploaded?

    Do you not download them in a podcasting app? The one I use you just refresh and it checks all the feeds. Or do you literally want the podcast within the first minute it's uploaded?
