Beef and Dairy Network

This is a surreal mocku-podcast for those involved, or just interested in beef farming and dairy herds. I used to work at Maff/Defra in the mid-90s and the style and obsession of some of these characters are scarily close to real people I used to work with! It can be quite hit-and-miss though, so if you try it and are unlucky enough to start with a duffer then please, please try some more. The Eli Roberts episodes are pure gold.

Jim Swain, Developer



An award-winning podcast, series 1 of Serial was absolutely addictive and led to a short obsession with true crime, that then fed into 2 other podcasts which picked up the story and ran with it!

From interviews with the creator behind the much-detested pop-up ads to a programmer who must print out every line of his code and mail it to his boss because his parole conditions ban him from having any internet access, Reply All is a podcast about the internet, filled with incredibly captivating stories about people and how they interact with the digital world.

The Whisperer in the Darkness

I like this podcast as it’s basically a mystery involving an investigative journalist with ostensibly supernatural elements woven in. The story is the foundation of a very good production and the editing is also excellent. If I had one criticism, I’d say the lead character is a bit over-acted but the supporting cast did a great job.
