Thursday Listening Party


On the Thursdays which don’t involve new episodes of AMT, join us for the Thursday Listening Party.
Because the dull roar of football spectators is…dull.

Let’s start with some ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Announcement the First: You know that Olly-hosted Media Podcast I’ve harped on about during the last couple of Thursday Listening Parties? The campaign to kickstart it for a year ends TOMORROW, so reallocate your potato salad budget and click here to fund Olly’s dream hosting job. (Also listen out for me on this week’s show, guest hosted by Miranda Sawyer, which will be out imminently.)

Announcement the Second: We’re all going on our summer holidays, no more podcasts for a week or two – indeed two, because the next episode of AMT will come out on Thursday 24th July rather than 17th. Before you get pissed off, just look at how happy holidays make Martin the Sound Man:

How to break the silence in our absence:

I want you to have nice things, dears, so I direct you to the episode of Bullseye featuring Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone. Then treat yourself to a Judy Greer and Richard Ayoade chaser.

I’ll bet there are a few of you who are keen to hear from Zaltzman family associate John Oliver, so here’s a thorough interview with him on Fresh Air.

Add a bit of science to your summer with podcasts from the Royal Society Summer Exhibition.

As you may have deduced from all these Thursday Listening Parties, I am always keen on a podcast in which people recount their true stories, so this week I’m guzzling Here Be Monsters.

And of course, there’s the AMT Sports Day album for all the sportytalk you need before/during/after the big Shirts vs Skins game.

Our various other gigs:

Catch up on AMT293 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, for which we are extremely grateful.
Olly’s on LBC every weekday 1am-4am. Who needs sleep?
I host the monthly Sound Women podcast and am on Let’s Talk About Tech from BBC 5 Live.
Martin the Sound Man makes numerous other podcasts, including Brain Train, The Global Lab and The Sound of the Ladies.
