Do You Love Us? (Podcast)
A Podcast About Manic Street Preachers
It's more than a bit ironic for R*E*P*E*A*T to whinge about need for critical editing and pruning, but the amount of pointless, dull banter in episode one of this largely popular and fast improving series almost turned several of us off forever. However once they begin their album by album analysis, everything clicks into place. The format works : three presenters - one super Manics fan, one Muse adoring MSP hater and an agnostic, cause many of the tracks to be listened to in a fresh way. And Adam, the 'super fan', has certainly done his research. So, despite the banter and occasional but annoying factual error, this is worth persevering with and is (mostly) an enjoyable listen.

Grayson's Art Club (Channel 4)
Grayson talks to artists, creatives, celebrities and viewers about art and lockdown.

Stay Free – The Story of the Clash (Podcast)
Public Enemy legend Chuck D narrates this awesome podcast detailing the history of The Clash.

Hip Hop Saved My Life (Podcast)
A comedy podcast about hip hop presented by award winning comedian Romesh Ranganathan

The Other Side with Seymour Quigley (Cambridge 105 and online)
This inspiring podcast focussing on new music in East Anglia and beyond has recently been promoted from Podcast to proper radio show, and it thoroughly deserves your time and your love. Seymour brings the exciting diversity of his Washing Machine gigs to the airwaves with a selection of new music, unexpected B sides, remixed classics, forgotten demos and genuinely interesting special guests. How come East Anglia has several 4 REAL fans of new music on the radio, and South Wales seems to have none? Highly recommended!


When Saturday Comes and The Anfield Wrap (Podcasts)
Two 'half decent' football podcasts.

Pose (TV series currently on i player).
American drama television series about New York City's African-American and Latino LGBTQ and gender-nonconforming ballroom culture scene in the 1980s

The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone by Olivia Laing (audio book / book)
Explores the connection between isolation and creativity, and suggests we should all be a little less frightened of being alone. Perfect for these times.

Prison Affair - demos

Can't really do a playlist without some music. And this comes recommended by Kieran of Bandicoot. “This is just a new hip band from Spain and they’ve just hit the nail on the head for someone that loves 4-track recordings, middy guitar riffs, lofi bass, and tight drum beats... It’s soothing and anxiety driving. It’s dark and bouncy.” (Turn on the Tube blog https://turnonthetube.home.blog)
