Thursday Listening Party



On the Thursdays with no new AMT, we crank up the spoken word audio and have a Thursday Listening Party.
Click here to attend all previous gatherings.

We’ve been busy, churning out noises:

Olly has just laid a hot fresh episode of the Guardian’s Tech Weekly, in which he debates the future of your ear-tertainment what with Apple Music and Beats 1 entering the fray. Hear it here, and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for more Mann on The Media Podcast and his LBC show.

I make a tiny cameo on the new 99% Invisible, all about Sigmund Freud’s couch. And at MaxFunCon last weekend, I was a panellist in a particularly raucous edition of International Waters: under the jurisdiction of Dave Holmes, Nadia Kamil and I took on Paul F. Tompkins and his wife Janie Haddad Tompkins, and let me tell you, when you’re playing for Britain on American soil, they do NOT want you to win.

Almost certainly less raucous, but still fun and funny, is Radio 4’s News Quiz: I’ll be on it tomorrow night, 6.30pm.

In the new episode of the Allusionist, I reluctantly learn about emoji, and discover a world of misbehaving medieval nuns. Hear it at

Catch up with AMT316 to hear about dirty knickers, banana thrift and the undead Mike Oldfield, and rejoin us next Thursday for AMT317.

What have you been listening to, dear audiophiles? Tell me in the comments!

    Why are Zaltzmans showing up on BBC radio panel shows all of a sudden? You’re not replacing Sandi, are you, Helen?

  2. Toby Says:

    Just listened to WTF with Barak Obama:
    Is this podcasting coming of age? It certainly felt like it, and in the roll-call of thanks at the end, it was strange to recognize a few of the names from podcast-land.
