Just thought about making a thread about the ever-growing number of radio 1 podcasts, comments, recommendations etc.

There are currently 10 regularly released podcasts, these include:

Scott Mills Daily, Greg James - That's What He Said, Best of Nick Grimshaw, Annie Mac's Mini Mix, Movies with Ali Plumb, Movies that Made Me, Radio 1 & 1Xtra's Stories, Radio 1's Life Hacks Podcast, How I Got Here from Radio 1's Academy, Niki and Sammy's Peachy Podcast and Kench.

Scott and Chris' Best in show is also released weekly under Scott Mills Daily on the podcast sites.

Scott and Chris' Profession Confessions podcast is also set to start in the coming weeks.

The following are also still available from the past:

The Matt Edmondson Show, Newsbeat, Life and Death Row, I Hear Voices, The Radio 1 Vintage Interviews and Ed and Lauren Get On.

There definitely seems to have been a big push from about 5 podcasts to 18 in the last few months now with Entertainment, Comedy, Documentaries, Movies and Music all featured across the range. Scott Mills in particular is heavily featured in his 6 (soon to be 7) podcasts a week.

Unless I missed one, I was flicking through the iTunes podcast chart the other night and noticed that no R1 podcasts feature in the top 100.

Just noticed, does the airing of these podcasts mean that Radio 1 Stories is off now?

Yes the 3-4 slot now just includes:

Mon - Artist Takeover

Tue - Specialist Chart

Wed - Comedy (Ed and Lauren)

Thu - Comedy (Niki and Sammy)

Fri - Changes a lot - has been Greatest hits, residency etc. in the last few weeks (Should also change to comedy in about a month)

 

Radio 1 Stories is now just made as a podcast to download and doesn't seem to be aired at all.

I haven't actually listened so I don't know for sure, but weren't documentaries supposed to be a part of the new Sunday Surgery/Life Hacks slot?

Has anyone else noticed that full songs keep being left in Scott's podcast? I'm not sure whether it's on purpose or not, but it's happened several times recently.

(Tuesday's podcast is still missing.)

Also it's a shame they're not using the Best In Show shows for some real classic Mills - they could probably air stuff like Flirt Divert and Badly Bleeped TV again and it would be a new audience, hearing it for the first time.

I have also noticed this. It tends to be between 3pm-3:30pm that it happens, but I don't know if it's intentional.

Is anyone else listening to the comedy podcasts?

  • I quite enjoyed the Ed and Lauren Get On podcast (which has recently finished) due to their funny but down to earth style. It just feels very relaxed and I could see this being brought back as they seem to be quite natural on the radio. General discussions about the funny side of life in a great partnership of real-world comedians.
  • Niki and Sammy's Peachy Podcast however hasn't been great as they spend most of the time talking about themselves and often have to have guests for the show to sound entertaining - it seems very similar to Grimmy's show - forced fun, reliance on guests and awful features (description friction in this case). They are just run-of-the-mill youtubers though so no great expectations here!
  • Scott and Chris' Best in Show is great, replaying games and features from the past couple of years, I t would be better though if they went back even further to things we won't all remember or have heard before bu overall, it works well and is a great idea as a lot of radio is never repeated but Scott's show deserves to be promoted in this way due to its long history for being so entertaining.
  • The Kench podcast will feature many shorter series', the current of which being Ray Moss - No Stone Unturned. This is very different from the others as it is a fictional, light-hearted detective series in which he tries to investigate mock-up cases sent in by listeners. It seems very good in the way the stories are quite funny and interesting and he is a great character.

So all in all these new podcasts are a great addition to the R1 collection and I would recommend them to people who enjoy the existing podcasts. In my eyes a much better idea than the constant documentaries and R1 takeover's we were bombarded in this slot before!

Enjoying the amount of podcasts - never short on something to listen to anymore.

Im sure in the first best of podcast Scott said they may get into older stuff so can imagine after next few more starting to delve into tap end etc but think we’re unlikely to hear of anything pre-Chris 

also enjoing Nicky and Danny’s peachy podcast their episode with Scott and Chris about bad jokes was great - reflecting on the lolathon
