This is brilliant. I had a load of boring drawings to bash out in February so I turned off Twitter and email, turned on Dan Carlin, and ploughed through the work. I managed to listen to most of his catalogue over the month. Excellent stuff.

Thanks, that sounds my kind of thing. Have added it to my SmartPlay list!

http://swindledpodcast.com/ - (from the website) is a podcast that utilizes narrative storytelling, archival audio, and immersive soundscapes to tell true stories of white-collar criminals, con artists, and corporate evil.

He’s got a weirdish voice but most of the stories are interesting.

I’ve been on a right podcast binge since we’ve all been told to stay at home and slowly go crazy. Another shout for collecting cars which is just fascinating listening.
