I had no idea he roped in Lisa Bloom of all people, and the use of the ex-Mossad Black Cube organization, holy gooseberry fool. The discussion about everyone having a price and Weinstein's ability to buy almost everyone off, that provoked a lot of thoughts in me about what my price might be. Maybe there's a thread in that.



Christ, I had forgotten those. :dread:

Been having a listen to Something Was Wrong, a fantastic podcast covering relationship abuses of various sorts, including gaslighting, Munchausen, etc. Highly recommend.

After Dan Carlin tweeted about it, I've been listening to the Hardcore History parody of the Ewok battle in Star Wars. While a parody of Carlin's style, the content is pretty good once you get used to the HH style.

It's called "Spec Media".

I've been listening to 'Socially Distant Sports Bar' a lot in lockdown and I love it! https://www.distantpod.com/

Essentially 3 Welsh guys talking about sport as they go over a few YouTube clips, a documentary and a book each week. Although in reality about 20% of the podcast is sports, the rest is just them chatting about anything and everything (including the likes of Nazi's, talcing your balls and how everyone in Wales knows each other).

It is essentially pub talk whilst there are no pubs. I was only aware of Elis James initially but the other two are great. They do push the pateron a lot and have recently made some of the pod exclusive to paying members, but the pods are usually 2hrs+ so even the free shorter version has plenty of stuff in it. Also been a great source for good sporting documentaries to watch!

Another fan of Bubbins. I haven't listened to this but he's usually good value on Fighting Talk.

I wasn't aware of him until I started listening to this podcast but he is fantastic! He reminds me of the Gerry character from the Modern Toss drawings :lol:

The contrast between him and Elis adn Steff is great as well.

If you don't pay for the Patreon then you can strawberry float off.

Dark Air with Terry Carnation has just released its first episode. It stars Rainn Wilson as a former radio host, in the AM radio paranormal conspiracy theory Coast to Coast mold - a role he reprises from the Radio Rental podcast, which is also pretty great.

First episode is pretty fun, I liked it. There's some Dwight Schrute in the character and it's a good time.

Over the weekend I've listened to the trilogy on African dictators (Amin, Nguema and Bokassa).

Nothing that can be said except they were just truly brutal and awful people.

I'm up to date now and am loving the current pirate episodes.
