podcast culture & the strand

I’ve been glutting on the BBC podcasts page today. Lots of generally highly produced podcasts, lots of variety in terms of content. I’m liking The Strand, BBC’s Global Arts and Entertainment program.

It fills the void left in my heart by Newsnight Review, which doesn’t seem to be on TV at the moment (or at least not this week). It was one of the few TV shows I enjoyed on a regular basis, when I still had TV, and I was looking forward to watching it whilst staying at my parents’ house…

This week The Strand has, amongst other cultural news, an interesting piece on a trend in children’s literature which according to them has seen a shift towards realism and depressing topics of death and misery.

Edit — I like these too:

Best of Natural History Radio

Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo’s Film Reviews
The Film Programme
World Book Club
Gardeners’ Question Time
