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 Pod Bible editor Adam Richardson and occasionally features fellow Pod Bible co-founders Stu Whiffen and Scroobius Pip.
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!
REVIEW // LowlinesFebruary 6, 2024
A brand-new collaboration between Social Broadcasts, Scenery Studios and food entrepreneur Petra Barran, Lowlines is intense soundscape escapism… Described as a ‘sonic scrapbook and a passport to roam’ Lowlines follows Petra Barran as she travels solo through the Americas. What pulled me to listen to the series was the production process – the original audio was recorded on the fly...
REVIEW // Hooked On FreddieSeptember 19, 2023
Catherine Renton gives us a peak at the latest podcast from Wondery to focus on a scandal in the UK… Podcasts based on scandals are so ubiquitous that it takes a juicy story to stand out nowadays. Thankfully, Wondery has really upped the ante with Hooked on Freddie, the true story of a dolphin sex scandal set in a sleepy...

REVIEW // A LATTO ThoughtDecember 8, 2020
“Race is a lie that became real” is a line from a new show that doesn’t hold back in critiquing the misinformation that we’ve been given regarding race. Stay with me here. You really haven’t heard it all when it comes to talking about race. I imagine that you’ve been signposted to a few podcasts on this subject this year,...
REVIEW // Pieces of a Man with Brian JacksonOctober 15, 2020
If there ever was a podcast that I’d want see recreated into a Netflix documentary, this would be it. Hosted by Brian Jackson, and called Pieces of a Man – referencing his 1971 musical collaboration with poet and soul-jazz artist Gil Scott-Heron. Jackson also contributed to Heron’s remarkable hit of the same year ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.’ In...
REVIEW // California Love & the Compton CowboysAugust 7, 2020
“LAist Studios exists to tell LA stories to the world.” That’s what you find in the “about” section of LAist Studios content, including Walter Thompson-Hernandez’s show California Love. The recent flight of shows from LAist Studios includes programs like Hollywood, The Sequel which explores how the entertainment industry can (and should) evolve, and Tell Them, I Am where host Misha Euceph speaks with...
REVIEW // Gee Thanks, I’m SweatingJuly 15, 2020
I love getting podcast recommendations; it’s what Pod Bible was built on, and it remains one of the best ways to discover new shows. Last week, a friend mentioned Gee Thanks, Just Bought It, a podcast hosted by Caroline Moss where her guests introduce her audience to a product they love and where to get one of their very own....
REVIEW // Blacticulate – Stories That StickJuly 7, 2020
A few weeks ago, we recommended the nine-part podcast About Race with Reni Eddo-Lodge. At the end of those powerful episodes, Reni recommended several other programmes hosted by Black creators, which is how we came to learn about Blacticulate, a platform for elevating Black stories in the U.K. Founded by Ade Bamgbala, the platform produces podcasts, hosts workshops, and provides...
REVIEW // The Nod’s “The Cowboy of the West Village”June 16, 2020
Podcasts, as an artform or type of media, work best when they offer the listener something intimate. It could be a laugh, it could be solidarity, and it could be enlightenment. A few weeks ago when listening to the back catalogue of episodes available from a great podcast called The Nod (that has since moved to a new format over...
REVIEW // About Race with Reni Eddo-LodgeJune 10, 2020
Over the past week, we at Pod Bible have been saving Instagram posts and bookmarking tweets about how to educate ourselves through audio and how to support Black voices in the podcasting world. As an American woman editing a predominantly British podcasting blog, I wanted to be sure that while I explored these well-crafted, informative and fun shows, I took...
REVIEW // A GIANT SurpriseMay 29, 2020
Yesterday was quite the day for U.K. football fans. Not only was a provisional date announced for the return of Premier League games, but our friends behind last year’s award-winning podcast series GIANT managed to sneak in a new, one-off episode alongside the team from World Cup-focused programme We Came to Win. Your friendly neighborhood Pod Bible folks joined the...
REVIEW // The Squiggly Careers PodcastMarch 17, 2020
As someone who tumbled sideways into career-focused podcasting last year, I am fascinated by how other people approach the space. And, perhaps more importantly, who those people are and what they are bringing to a chorus of often-times redundant advice. Enter the refreshing voices of Helen Tupper and Sarah Ellis of Amazing If and their podcast, Squiggly Careers. The fun,...
