    Barely listen to radio, but YouTube channels take up a lot of my free time.

    Gaming : Totalbiscuit for his pc port reports which are really useful as a buyer's guide for pc games , Raycevik for his X years later series, Jim Sterling for some mindless but amusing rants, Zero Punctuation for low effort bite sized humor, and LazyGameReviews for Retro games, etc.

    Movies : Mark kermode, RedLetterMedia, Every Frame a Painting, JeremyJahns( I know I know, he's terrible but I find him kinda amusing at times)

    Wrestling : Wrestling with Wregret, Bryan and Vinny, Solomonster ppv reviews

    Other random channels :

    Primitive Technology... Just a guy building stuff on his own for half an hour. It's some of the most oddly soothing content available on YouTube.

    Great War channel ... Basicaoly does what the name says

    VSauce. Lots of easy to get into educational videos

    These are all the ones I'm subscribed to at the moment. There used to a be a lot more video game ones but these are the ones I stick to these days, and I tend to skip at least one of the Giant Bomb ones every week. I used to listen to a lot more ESPN and IGN Pods back in the day (7-8 years ago) but most of them don't exist anymore, or are bastardised versions of themselves.

The best bits always find their way online anyway. There's 3 WOR's a week, after Raw, after Dave publishes the newsletter on Thursday arvo (our time) and at the end of the weekend. Then there's bonus ones if there's just been a big PPV (WWE/UFC/NJPW), And then there's other shows (Bryan and Vinny, Observer Live, etc) but I never listen to them

    I used to listen to https://headgum.com/we-watch-wrestling regularly. 3 LA comedians so there's a pretty good mix of humour and wrestling talk, but I've basically stopped, same with Jonomonster. I'll sometimes listen to the Voices of wrestling flagship podcast if I've got 3 hours to spare. Funnily enough in the ep I just listened to they kinda summed up the problem I currently have with the wrestling podcasts, which is they're WWE centric (which isn't a bad thing) and all the matches they're recapping, excluding the bray wyatt ones, are perfectly fine, they're decent to good matches, it's pretty rare you get a stinker, but there's just nothing to talk about booking wise because you know, it's just pointless, Vince does whatever he wants based on whatever takes his fancy that day, so it's truly just a recap show and then you're speculating if (x) is in the dog house because they've done a job or whatever. It's just not really worth analysing or thinking too much about. Dave's speculation is at least worth listening to though.

    Anyway, best of the super juniors fixtures have been released. First night (May 17th) is stacked, of course, two of the best rivalries in recent years kicking things off: Hiromu Takahashi vs. Dragon Lee & Will Ospreay vs. Marty Scurll. If Takaahashi and Ospreay both win, I suspect they're not dropping any matches until they face off on the last night of their pool.

    They've also uploaded the awesome match between Takahashi and Dragon Lee from Feb. I tried to listen to the English commentary but...

    i tend not to subscribe to too many as I only tend to listen on my commute (so about an hour and a half a day), and thats when I'm cycling, which isn't every day. Tend to pick up the Radio 4 comedies (News Quiz, Just a Minute), No Such Thing as a Fish, and Richard Herrings Leicester Sq Podcast.

    Also slight plug, but a friend of mine is launching his own online radio called Primordial Radio. Were talking a decent level of radio here, not cheap ass pirate stuff - he and his mates used to be the DJ's for Real XS up here, then Team Rock (run by the guys behind Metal Hammer/Planet Rock magazine) before the company behind it went into Admin...they've already raised 100k towards the set up costs, and probably chucked the same amount in out of their own pocket. At the moment they've been running a podcast on the process behind it all. Makes a great insight into a bunch of drunks setting up a new business with **** all experience, learning what they need to actually operate as a functional company - so yeah, give that a listen if you like decent music, have any desire to ever start a business, or like hearing a Yorkshireman make lots of star wars jokes whilst his Canadian mate swears a lot

    Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
    GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
    Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.

    The Arseblog Arsecast, is the only one I regularly listen to. Consistently high quality and with great guests seemingly every week.

    The Jason Stapleton Program
    Part of the Problem
    This is Tranmere
    CW Podcast
    Davos' Fingers
    Hardcore History
    The Tom Woods Show

    These make up the crux of my playlists.

    EDIT - will be checking Rogan out tonight as it has Michael Malice on. He's a bloke worth listening to if you're interested in North Korea.

    I don't know how to feel about this one. I listen to Carlin too, but I don't think I actually listen to him half the time. Seems like I tune in and out in the middle of those 4 hour marathon shows and it's likie a soothing voice in my ear rather than me actually taking in what he's saying.

    I've only listened to the 'Blueprint for Armageddon' series, WW1 & 2 both fascinate me so I've enjoyed it so far. The first episode was the best though - always felt the causes of WW1 are the most interesting part.

    The American Peril is a great single ep one. Who knew Teddy Roosevelt was so crazy

    at this point, the only ones I'm consistently listening to are these 3 comedy ones, from very much the same ecosystem in LA
