I prefer to timeshift these to the middle of the bloody night…!
I have finally succeeded in unlinking my podcasts from iTunes, using the excellent Downcast app. Downcast does what I always needed iTunes to do: properly sync between the iPhone and the iPad and remember what I’m doing. So now I’m all set.
I will say, though, that the discovery process isn’t quite as good on Downcast. Not enough categories.
I always wanted BERG to do a podcast. They could have called it BERG Longwave, and ended it with a version of The Shipping Forecast, only in Shoreditch, and with pubs.
This is the current list. It’s getting edited through over the next few days.
Feel free to send me recommendations, based on the below list, @warrenellis. I mean, if anyone’s awake at this hour. I’m not. This is firing while I am sleeping the sleep of the virtuous.*
