There's a party in your ears and even Prince Charles is invited!

On alternate Thursdays when there’s no new episode of AMT, we have ourselves a listening party.

Noises from home*:

I’m on the latest episode of Guardian Media Talk with John Plunkett and Boyd Hilton. At the time of recording, the axing of BBC3 was still mere rumour. By the time of release, the blow had been dealt. So this podcast is a relic of a more innocent time. Click here to get it.

Also there’s a new episode of the Sound Women podcast. Ever wondered how breakfast show radio hosts do their jobs without becoming sleep-deprived suicidal wrecks? Or how to tell stories through toilets? Me too! Find out here:

Martin the Sound Man has been making musical noises again: this month’s Sound of the Ladies podcast is a cover of ’17’ by Youth Lagoon.

Noises from abroad:

I don’t have children. I don’t have plans to have children. I have been filled to the brim with child-chat by family and friends who have had children. So I would not have expected myself to be keen to listen to a podcast about having children and raising children. BUT! I love the One Bad Mother podcast. If you don’t have children, it’s two people talking very entertainingly and frankly about important personal stuff; if you do have children, it’s a beacon of ‘Oh thank Christ it wasn’t just me who thinks that’. Get on it.

When I want to blot out journeys on London transport but I really can’t decide what I’m in the mood for, the Dinner Party Download is perfect because it contains a bit of everything: chitchat, culture, history, facts, food, drink, interviews, etiquette, music… It’s the bento box of podcasts.

On a more melancholy tip, there’s the new episode of The Theory of Everything: When You’re Lonely, Life is Very Long.

If you liked Jon Ronson on AMT190, you’ll love him on WTF. I’ve never heard Marc Maron sound so happy to be talking to someone!

Need more noise? Here’s a big list of podcasts we like.

* I also direct you to our various regular audio gigs:

Olly’s on LBC every weekday 1am-4am
I’m on BBC 5 Live’s Saturday Edition every weekend, or whenever you want in its subsequent incarnation as the podcast Let’s Talk About Tech.
Martin the Sound Man makes numerous other podcasts, including Brain Train, The Global Lab and The Sound of the Ladies.

Got a request for the DJ? (Er, as in, you want to recommend a podcast you’ve been listening to?) Divulge in the comments!
