The Pod Bible Podcast is the podcast podcast where podcasters talk to podcasters about podcasts and podcasting. Does it get anymore meta?
The show is hosted by editors Adam Richardson and Stu Whiffen, and will occasionally feature the third member of the Pod Bible team, Scroobius Pip.
Each week we bring you a bite size, magazine style show featuring three guests talking about their show or the shows they enjoy listening to. The aim is to give you a chance to hear from your favourite podcasters while also introducing you to people and podcasts you may not be aware of yet.
Guests include the people behind podcasts such as Off Menu, No Such Thing As A Fish, Football Ramble, Griefcast, Films To Be Buried With, The Receipts, Drunk Women Solving Crime and many, many more. Let’s spread the word of pod!
Self Care Club: Self Care to the TestSeptember 22, 2020
Self Care Club: Wellness, Road Tested is one of Stakhanov’s most recent podcasting ventures. Founded by Nicole Goodman and Lauren Mishcon, Self Care Club is part reality and part experiment – testing out various self care techniques so you don’t have to!

Podcast Maker Weekend 2020September 21, 2020
With the excitement surrounding the return of the London Podcast Festival, we spoke to Martin Zaltz Austwick and Sarah Myles about this year’s Podcast Maker Weekend, a diverse series of podcasting workshops that runs alongside the festival this weekend. We were keen to find out how you structure a virtual event in the time of a pandemic, and how you...
Football Ramble: Women in Sports MediaSeptember 9, 2020
Historically and socially speaking, a lot of the media covering sports like football is saturated with male voices – resulting in women who have an interest in the sport not being taken seriously and are often subjected to misogynistic abuse by disgruntled male fans. While this is not a problem that can be easily solved solely through greater representation of...
A Special CheapShow CelebrationJune 12, 2020
In honour of their 5th anniversary, we asked the twisted minds behind CheapShow to tell us their tale, how they came to be, what their fans mean to them, and how the current pandemic is affecting their work. Naturally, when we asked them for a story, we got more than we bargained for. To cut a long story short, I’d...
The BBFC Podcast Amid LockdownMay 5, 2020
Our friends at the British Board of Film Classification are sharing some background on the latest episode of the the BBFC Podcast, including a look into how films are moving to the at-home streaming experience during the lockdown, and how their team is producing the show remotely. Life has changed completely since restrictions were brought in to combat coronavirus, but lockdown has...
The Life and Times of the Football RambleApril 15, 2020
To say this has been an unprecedented year for the team behind Football Ramble Daily would be an understatement. As listenership has continued to increase through the football season, the Stakhanov production has implemented a number of successful initiatives to cement themselves at the forefront of the sports podcasting landscape worldwide. With four hosts and two extra collaborators filling out...
Behind The Scenes with The Offensive PodcastApril 6, 2020
With all sport currently on hiatus, continuing to record sports podcasts presents a unique challenge. Perhaps escapism is what football fans need right now, which would be good news for Joel Emery, writer and creator of The Offensive. The show is a football mockumentary that follows fictional club Ashwood City FC and all the conniving, backstabbing and idiocy of their...
The Relaunch of Revisiting- Series 8!January 27, 2020
Originally titled Berkhamsted Revisited, the first few seasons of Revisiting revolved around 20-somethings Laura K and Laura G as they reflect on Laura K’s hilariously frank teenage diaries. Since then, Berkhamsted Revisited has put out seven seasons worth of episodes, rebranded to Revisiting, welcomed a whole host of guests, and covered everything from embarrassing childhood celebrity crushes to horrid first job interviews. After six seasons of Berkhamsted...
A BBC EARTH BLOG – Eco AnxietyNovember 13, 2019
What is Eco Anxiety?

A BBC EARTH BLOG – Nature Comes Alive! How binaural 3-D audio is transforming our listening experienceSeptember 30, 2019
With the rise of digital media we are listening to an increasing array of audio content that includes music, digital radio, audio books and podcasts. Listening to these audio sources by cranking up the volume on our personal headphones is a way to escape the stresses and tensions of our noisy urban lives by shutting out the world around us,...
A BBC EARTH BLOG – How to spot a tiger before it finds youAugust 27, 2019
Understanding what animals mean can be hugely beneficial for a wildlife documentary maker, especially if your subject is a lone master of disguise. If you’re in a vast, dense jungle in India, and the tiger you are hoping to film could be anywhere in that jungle, the only sense you can rely on is hearing. This is the situation that...
GUEST BLOG // Podcasts & Mental HealthAugust 1, 2019
Hello! I’m Rachael and I’ve written about how podcasts help me with my mental health stuff. This is meant to be an introduction but two sentences looked a bit ropey so I’ve added this one. I’m a single mum, an artist and I’m autistic. The reasons I love podcasts are multiple. They’ve carried me through night feeds and coursework, through...
The Masters of Subversion – Podcast AdsJuly 17, 2019
Podcast ads are turning advertising on its head – have they finally cracked how adverts should be? If you’re a regular podcast listener, you’ll probably be just as familiar with the selling points of Squarespace, Mailchimp and Blue Apron as you are your favourite shows. Podcasts have grown exponentially over the past few years, and companies are increasingly capitalising on...
SET MEALS – A food show driven by it’s hosts’ insatiable hungerJuly 15, 2019
It’s 1pm on a Wednesday. The sun pours through the window behind me, highlighting the finger smudges on the screen of my iMac. To my left, a half-eaten Portuguese tart casts a shadow across my desk’s surface. It’s 1pm on a Wednesday and I’ve already skipped lunch for the second time this week. Ironic, considering I instead spent those hours...
A BBC EARTH BLOG – Bee Inspired Art At Glastonbury!July 8, 2019
THIS MAN USED THE SOUND OF A COLONY OF BEES TO INSPIRE HIS ARTWORK AT GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL Crowds, thumping music, sights, sounds, and smells all around, the ever-present heat or squelching mud – the festival experience can really overwhelm the senses, but for those lucky enough to make it to Glastonbury, they could find comfort among the buzz of bees....
