WHAT ARE THE BEST PODCASTS?

I've listened to the odd podcast here and there, but never really subscribed to any. Lately however, the whole choosing my own radio and getting it delivered automatically to my ears thing has sounded like a better idea. So I've been casting my pod like crazy. Here are my Top 5...

1: This American Life
Real-life stories of everyday people. Though a little schmaltzy at times, the show is made by legendary presenter Ira Glass, who has honed the craft of audio story-telling to a fine art.  Each episode has a theme and a variety of stories on that theme. Probably the best way to understand the show is to start at their favourites page.

2: Adam and Joe
Adam and Joe are the funniest comedy duo on the airwaves since Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant brought in Karl Pilkington and became a comedy trio.

3: Bill Maher's Real Time
Comedian Bill Maher hosts a funny political/current affairs talkshow. I think I agree with everything he smugly assumes.


4: Mark Kermode's Film Reviews
The finest film critic in the world rates the week's releases.
5: The Guardian Music Podcast
The main reason I tune into this one is to hear the sexy voice of presenter Rosie Swash.
