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.

What good stuff have you been listening to this month? I loved:

The Accidental Gay Parents episode of The Longest Shortest Time; and now there’s a second instalment.
The ‘Last Chance to Evacuate Earth’ episode of Here Be Monsters, about the Heaven’s Gate cult.
This very jaunty 99% Invisible about the AIDS red ribbon.
Next on my audio list: fifty years of Annie Nightingale on the radio. Fifty! I interviewed Annie last year, and she still seemed completely excited about and unjaded by her work, despite having done half a century of it.

Catch Olly on the Guardian’s Tech Weekly and LBC. Martin has a new episode of The Global Lab about knowing what rhinos look like before you could watch a David Attenborough documentary about rhinos. And in the new Allusionist, I find out about why stepmothers are so evil, with the assistance of Aaron Mahnke from Lore (a podcast which will be right up many of your streets, I’ll wager).

Catch up on AMT319, in which questioneers have problems with mustard, flags and a dominatrix.

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.

Whether or not you’re a fan of Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo’s Film Reviews – and who in the podcast-listening realm isn’t? – apply yourself to Mark Kermode‘s recent Radio 4 series The Business of Film, also available as a podcast. It’s as entertaining and informative as you’d expect Kermode to be about the business of film, plus there’s some pH1 bitchery from film industry insiders (ahem, Matthew Vaughn).

Private Eye has a new podcast! Which is a surprise, given how their staff usually prefer to remain anonymous. Here it is, for you news, politics and satire fans.

As regular Thursday Listening Party attendees will have clocked, I have an apparently inexhaustible appetite for podcasts in which people divulge true stories from their lives. I’ve recently been listening to The Longest Shortest Time, which may be sold as a parenting podcast but is really about LIFE, and is very welcome to me even given my child-averse status.

Finally, I’m recommending The Sporkful to you again, because it’s so much fun, and particularly when Dan Pashman goes all agony uncle for food.

Oh, us?

Remember to listen to Olly host The Media Podcast and 1-4am weeknightmornings on LBC.

And please try my newish show The Allusionist. The new episode will confirm what you’ve always suspected when you’ve been going round a museum: the real exhibit is YOU. THEY ARE WATCHING.

See you next Thursday for AMT310!
