To tell you the truth, friends, we’re taking a working holiday from the podcast, and tomorrow we have a big job: Helen and Olly’s Required Listening on BBC 5 Live, a three-hour radio extravaganza all about podcasts, unusual radio stations, and other varied and curious sounds to put into your ears.
UPDATE: the aforementioned ‘tomorrow’ has passed, and the live transmission with it; so click here to hear Required Listening via BBC iPlayer.
And that’s not all: the Arseblogger will be kicking off versus Phil Cornwell from The Spurs Show; the Indie Travel Podcasters will stay still long enough to talk about their six-years-and-counting world tour; we’ll take in the sounds of the sewers with Resonance FM and eat brains with We’re Alive.
Also we’ll hear from Britain’s oldest and youngest radio stars, the foodies from Cake or Death and The Hungry Cyclist, Amanda Brown of Audioboo, the nation’s smallest professional radio station Radio Scilly, Paul Stokes of Q Magazine, ‘challenging’ music DJ Admirable Restraint, and the chaps from Flaps.
UPDATE: all these things happened, so just translate all the above verbs into past tense.
