I like listening to podcasts. I listen mostly when driving or at the gym.
Over time I understood that I don’t like the American way of doing podcasts (TED-like, engaging listeners, very emotional). I find them tiring and prefer the British ones.
I am a regular listener of three podcasts that I whole-heartily recommend:
Infinite Monkey Cage (BBC) – incredibly entertaining general science podcast with amazing Brian Cox and Robin Ince as hosts.
Science Weekly (Guardian) – Science news. Helps me to be up to speed with scientific advancements. Leans towards physics/ hard science. Sometimes includes absolutely fascinating interviews.
Friday Night Comedy (BBC) – Recent news discussed by the British comedians. Funny as hell.
