Thursday Listening Party


On the Thursdays we don’t release a new AMT, we crank up the spoken word audio and have a Thursday Listening Party.
Click here to attend all previous gatherings.

Shhhhhhhhhh!!! Keep the noise down, people, I’m trying to have a quiet nap here… Not because I’m still recovering from the AMT300 rager (though I probably am, a bit), but I just got back from a Very Exciting Podcasting Trip Abroad and now am in a jetlagged fugue state. So have a listen to the AMT300 bumper bonus track while I just rest my head on the keyboard for a few minutexcnxgnxjvcvxddsdsdddddddddddddddddd

Wake me up for an episode or two of Radio 4’s 21st-Century Mythologies, which in classic ‘Only on Radio 4’ tradition manages to perform such feats as linking Roland Barthes with screw-top wine. The episode comparing the Kardashians to Ancient Greek gods is particularly priceless. “Physiological paganism” is rarely a phrase the tabloids use when writing about them.

Heal Thyself, a little series about self help by Robin Ince, has made me heal my sleepy self quite a bit, so mission accomplished, Robin. [nods off again standing up]

It was impossible for even me to nap through the Dinner Party Download bonus podcast. Warning: severe bawdy talk!

What else would you suggest to distract me from the mallets of jetlag whacking into my skull? Recommend shows in the comments, please!

Tune in to our various other gigs:

Olly’s on LBC every weekday 1am-4am. Keep pinching yourself to stay awake and join him.
I host the monthly Sound Women podcast, and the latest episode is all about my fantastically irresponsible career path: freelancing.
Martin the Sound Man makes numerous other podcasts, including Brain Train about clever things, The Global Lab about cities and stuff, and The Sound of the Ladies music podcast.
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.
Catch up on AMT300 and the episodes preceding it.

    Always makes me laugh
    Irrelevant local news on a weekly basis.

    The latest Radiolab podcast, which included several stories around the theme of translation, was great (and I almost pissed myself laughing during the section about a sign language interpreter at a comedy show!).

    I’m loving the 21st century mythologies programmes as well 🙂
