    I like La Liga Weekly.

    Graham Hunter's podcasts are worth checking out; the one with Gary Neville being the best I've heard (Gordon Strachan had some good bits too).

    I'm not too much of a fan of interviews and I'll even skip on if my usual ones go to something like that, but I'll give that Hunter one a go as the guests look good on the site.

    The Off the Ball Football Show one I posted above is good for anyone who likes Pat Nevin.

    I listen to The Giant Bombcast along with The Beastcast and the GB Wrestling ones when they do them.

    I used to listen to Steve Austins and Colt Cobana's podcasts, but I no longer have a long trip to work so never get around to them.

    I do quite like Pat Nevin, I'll have a listen.

    Not football related, but I've listened to two Longform Podcasts. If there's anyone on here who likes Malcolm Gladwell, click.

    I'm not sure if he's a permanent fixture but most evenings I listen to the show live (it's on Newstalk radio here) he's on it. I quite like him myself.

    Serial was excellent I thought, though got a little bit rubbish towards the end.

    For football it is mainly the obvious ones - Football Weekly and Football Ramble are both good, and World Football Phone-In would be outstanding if the callers weren't such annoying mental cunts. Dotun's singing can get a bit grating after a while, too.

    Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast is generally decent. Tend to only pick and choose with that now, but the episode with Graham Linehan and Armando Ianucci is still probably one of the funniest hours of anything I've ever heard. Louis Theroux one was also great.

    The Attitude Era Podcast and The Lapsed Fan Podcast are my favourite wrestling ones, but Stone Cold's is obviously great too. Oh, and Jim Cornette's - think I have 7om to thank for that.

    Second Captains is a good podcast. I only tend to listen to the football one but they put out four a week - two football and two 'other sport'. That 'other sport' is often GAA or Rugby so I give it a miss.

    I liked the Chris Waddle interview on that Graham Hunter podcast. Did you listen to that one Reg? Graham himself is a bit annoying but he seems to get some good stories and comment out of his guests.

    Good man, I never knew about that one. There's a TV show here that I always watch called Second Captains Live but I never knew they had a podcast too. Sounds exactly what I'm after.

    I listened to half of it, I haven't gone back to it as I wasn't too keen. I can't remember seeing Waddle play so that could be why.

    I liked him actually talking about being a winger and taking someone on, from Sunday League to Champions League. Plus he's good talking about his time at Marseille. And he namechecks Riyad Mahrez so big props on that

    Oh and an honourable mention to The Game for quite how bad it manages to be. The Times's answer to Football Weekly, it is the most miserable, boring and all-round shit podcast I've ever heard. Not just out of football ones. I get Gab Marcotti has a thing about taking football 'seriously' so not wanting the Jimbo style puns and piss-taking, but if you're not going to be funny at least be interesting. The scouse presenter manages to be noticeably worse than the others though, which is quite impressive.

    I gave it two episodes and it was absolutely horrendous. Marcotti is such a bottle of shit.

    Kermode and Mayo is a weird one for me. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I find their 'wittertainment' bantz hello to Jason Isaacs shtick unbearable.

    The Game is the ultimate example of an alternative which isn't an alternative. It tries so hard to be contrary. Diego Costa didn't earn even a yellow against Arsenal apparently. Tony Barrett drags down that paper so badly.

    The Game is weird becuase they have Marcotti - who is genuinely good - and make him the impartial host. Haven't listened to that for ages though tbf.

    I had to bin A Waste Of Time becuase the guests were just a bit rubbish, Clark Kent aside. I'll check back from time to time to see if someone interesting turns up becuase I quite like the Rosenthals. I see Just Blaze is on the latest so will give that a listen at some point.

    If you don't care about Star Wars don't bother. It was very much ''our friend is a star wars nerd, how do we get him in' stuff.

    I like listening to the less established people due to their ultimate confusion that a white person knows as much as them. GunPlay seemed dumbfounded by these kids. It's like a non socially awkward narduwar.

    Brand Shoemaker kills everything though. I understand Gerstmann not wanting to host anymore but Shoemaker can't riff with someone if his life depended on it. Especially someone funnier than he is. Which leads to Gerstmann jumping off on everything because he's the only one able to create jump off points. Hence why the Beastcast works better, the roles are just so much more defined.

    I used to listen to the thing Richard Herring did with Andrew Collins, but then Collins agreed to do a paid radio show with someone else and Herring pitched a fit like a child being denied sweets and they stopped. Anything I hear from him now is tainted with the knowledge that he's a petty arsehole.

    I only listen to the Football Weekly and Kermode and Mayo podcasts.

    I;m similar to your opinion on Herrig, I wasn't 'pro collins' but it certainly explained Stewart Lees willingness to split.

    Aye I've heard that the last few episodes of collings and herrin are quite nasty, bordering on Herring basically bullying him. I don't really want to find out for myself though, as I think Herring is a decent enough bloke with a bit of a weird side, and I wouldn't want to ruin my enjoyment of him doing alright interviews with quite funny people.

    He obviously isn't a decent bloke if he's being a nasty bastard towards, and eventually binning his mate for taking some work with the stated reason being that they didn't also want Herring.

    That's just unreasonable bullshit.

    Herring's defense was that it was the same slot that they'd been doing together, they axed it, then asked Collins to do it with someone else which was a betrayal of sorts. Even in Collins's own blog post about it, he sort of implies that he was glad he wasn't doing the show with Herring anymore and quite happily went along with it.

    I still think Herring was a petulant little girl about it (and I'm not sure I believe him when he says that he'd have refused if the roles were reversed) but I do sort of see where he's coming from.

    Had they just done the podcast, then had 6music approach Collins to do a show he'd unambiguously be a twat, but with all the other context I'm not so sure. I do see your point, though.

    Very good. I always liked the TV show so I was thinking it would be worth listening to. Also like the way they split up the football and rugby shows like Off the Ball does, and not mix it all in the one.

    Agreed. I couldn't see Miles' face so I didn't particularly want to punch him. They did essentially stick an advert for FM in, with the question and answer bit - think Jim might be right about paying to be on there.
