Thursday Listening Party




Several of our noise-making pals have been busy lately:

Star of AMT252 Isy Suttie has begun a new series of her Radio 4 show Isy Suttie’s Love Letters. The first series was several kinds of delightful, so do yourself a favour and listen to series 2 episode 1 here.
Dave Pickering of Getting Better Acquainted and Stand Up Tragedy is producing a new podcast with Living Streets for National Walking Month, and the first episode is available here. Take it out for a stroll!
Over the years of AMT, my (at best) ambivalence towards sport cannot have escaped you. Turns out, all it took to get me interested was Jesse Thorn teaming up with Roman Mars to talk about socks.

What have you been listening to lately, dear reader? Share your recommendations in the comments.

A few more things that recently caught my attention:

Martin and I were on holiday driving around a desert sparsely populated with small towns, and when you’re in a desert sparsely populated with small towns, the most suitable soundtrack is of course Welcome to Night Vale.

Also on the subject of driving around in deserts is this extraordinary story of reclusive billionaires, legal wrangling and Mormons on Love + Radio.

If you’re a fan of the Jimi Hendrix cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘All Along the Watchtower’, allow me to direct you to this great account of how the record came about, including a hilarious clip of founding Rolling Stone Brian Jones contributing a piano part, before being relegated to the vibraslap.


Catch up on AMT288 and the episodes preceding it.
AMT episodes 1-170 and the special AMT albums are all available for a piddling little price at, and if you buy any of them you’re bankrolling the podcast, so consider yourself a philanthropist.
The BBC have decided to make our Radio 4 documentary, Podcasting: The First Ten Years, available indefinitely here to stream. If you simply must download it, go here.
Olly’s on LBC every weekday 1am-4am. If you’re an insomniac, a night worker, or in a time zone where those hours are compatible with waking life, tune in.
On Saturday evenings I’m on BBC 5 Live’s Saturday Edition, available subsequently as the podcast Let’s Talk About Tech.
I also host the monthly Sound Women podcast.
Martin the Sound Man makes numerous other podcasts, including Brain Train, The Global Lab and The Sound of the Ladies.

To keep your ears ever busy until AMT289 next Thursday, here are some other podcasts we like.

Requests are welcome at the Thursday Listening Party. No need to dance sexily next to the DJ booth hoping to be noticed, just recommend shows in the comments.
