Podcast Recommendations

I very much enjoy The Rest Is Entertainment. Always interesting and listening to Marina Hyde makes me feel slightly more highbrow even when she is just talking about the telly and whatnot.
I'm a sucker for anything that Richard Osman goes near. I resent them going to two episodes a week as I had enough to listen to before they came into the mix.

This started coming up through YouTube and I’ve transitioned to listening to the actual podcast now. I’m really really liking it, it’s definitely for anyone who thought the Media Guardian section was the highlight of the week in the paper. Lots of little bits of info like 1m people watched Mr. Bates on demand and marathoned the lot in one session or how BARB actually works.

I wonder if they’ll answer my question if men are briefed about their bulges when sat down wearing tight trousers?
 
Oh I liked the bit of info that someone who worked on the oil rigs was solely responsible for a show on ITV 3 gaining 80k viewers the weeks he was onshore and then losing that 80k when he was working :D
 
Yes I've been listening to this since week 1. They're a great insightful pair. Lot's of lovely entertainment world TIT TAT.
 
I binged Ghost Story recently, really good. I've also discovered Maintenance Phase and Fad Camp, they're both about the wellness industry and fad diets and can be quite entertaining.
 
The chat about AI's imminent impact on this week's main The Rest Is Entertainment episode was quite dispiriting. The hollowing out of the culture :(

Yeah. It was quite a depressing state of things to come :(

The Gogglebox tidbit in the next episode was quite good though. I like that Netflix sit around going “how will this play out on Gogglebox?” :D
 
I really can’t describe how much I love The Rest is Entertainment. The quite impassioned chat about (moopy point of contention) the BBC on the latest episode I thought was wonderful.

And then there’s the tidbits about The Biz and Marina being sarcy about celebs :D
