Sound Women Podcast: be smiley for Jo Whiley

iTunes best of 2014
Well, this is nice – firstly, Answer Me This! being a ‘classic’ in iTunes’s best of 2014, which both flatters our little home-made show, and makes me feel very old and Roger Moore-ish. Secondly, I’m absolutely delighted to see the brilliant No Such Thing As a Fish being dubbed iTunes’s best new show of 2014 (and this has been a GREAT year for new shows, including Pitch, Criminal, Death, Sex & Money, and of course the juggernaut that is Serial).

I appear on episode 27 of No Such Thing As a Fish, by the way, but don’t let that put you off.

And now for a parade of shows I’ve been doing lately:

On the fun history podcast Z List Dead List, I talk about Dr Wilhelm Fliess, Sigmund Freud’s best frenemy; and on She Podcasts, I bang on about podcasting and radio and stuff like that. Which [UPDATED TO ADD] is also what I do on the 200th episode of the Wired podcast.

This month’s Sound Women podcast features Jo Whiley:

I guest hosted the Media Podcast special from the Women in Film and TV awards. I got to meet Sue Perkins and Jon Snow!

And I’m on the new International Waters, along with Simon Kane, Jackie Kashian, Brian Fernandes and host Dave Holmes, AND a very festive hit from New Kids on the Block. Prepare yourself for a funky funky Christmas:

Finally, if you would prefer a funny Christmas to a funky Christmas, may I suggest the Answer Me This! Christmas? Further information about the contents is here, as well as links to buy it for a very trifling price; and now is the time of year for it. I anticipate April will NOT be the time.

The Media Podcast

Popped up on this week’s Media Podcast and whoops, for the second time this week I had a rant about the radio industry. Among other current media topics. Listen here:

Nightingale noises

I’ve had a quiet month. Wayyyyy too quiet. But hurrah, the silence is broken:

There’s a new episode of the Sound Women podcast, in which the absolute legend that is Annie Nightingale tells me about busting down doors to get a job at the distinctly female-unfriendly Radio 1, where she still is today, as fresh and enthusiastic as ever. We also go behind the scenes of big music festival broadcasts, through all the mud, rain and balloon attacks.

I’m a guest on the latest episode of The Media Podcast with Newsbeat’s Alex Hudson and host Miranda Sawyer. On the agenda: George Clooney vs the Mail Online, leaky Doctor Who, and the sinister-sounding Omnicom.

A couple of weeks ago, I chaired a discussion at the Regent Street Apple Store with Bugle producer Chris Skinner, Football Rambler Pete Donaldson, and m’esteemed colleage Olly Mann. Audio and video of us contemplating our podcasting lives is now available here.

And finally: after many weeks of being biffed in favour of sports broadcasts, 5 Live’s Saturday Edition is back*, as will be its subsequent incarnation as the Let’s Talk About Tech podcast.
*Alas, not for long. After four glorious years, as of October it will be no more. Spare any change?
