    This American Life can be both brilliant and dreadful, depending on what topics they cover. There's certainly something for everyone there, whether you're interested in babies and home life, the horrors of war of what Yanks get up to in their daily lives, which so far as I can tell, is as diverse and inexplicable as all of the rest of the world all put together.

    Ah yes, this American life. As you say Duke, I find it very hit and miss, some episodes gripping, others I have to switch off.

    I enjoy the TEDtalks podcasts on some themes interesting too.

    Mortified by typo - too late to edit.

    Thank you for starting this thread. I've already added 2 to my pod-cast list.

    ah, some interesting things that I did not even realise had a pod cast - IN OUR TIME - I usually catch about 15mins of this and then am gutted that I have to get out of the car, this is a revelation. Ditto to Drama of the week.

    Folk ones sound much of interest too.

    I love 'the infinite monkey cage' with Robin Ince and Brian Cox, and Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast (RHLSTP!)

    Serial is great! It's a brilliant American story of a lawyer reviewing a legal case.

    Ah, listened to all Serial series one was completely hooked, not begun series 2 yet.

    @FrankWolley may I thank you for the folk suggestions I am absolutely loving them no idea how I missed them as a Northumbian (by choice not birth) I am a big Mighty Doonans, tickell, unthanks type music fan so they are right up my street - a great listen!

    This was one of the brilliant ones for me:


    When Mariya Karimjee was little, members of her family made a decision that would affect her entire life. Years later, she wants to know why. (32 minutes)
