All Ears (Me and My Podcast Pals)

Posted on Updated on

I’m a good listener.

Be it a sign of curiosity, shyness or low self-esteem – it’s true.

I’m all ears.

It’s why I like asking questions so much and dogs that bark so little.

It’s why I have so many podcast pals.

Let me introduce them.

There’s David, Catherine and Matt from The Tennis Podcast, playful, penetrating and prolific.

Geoff and Annabel are Adrift, plumbing the depths of social awkwardness with insight and irreverence.

Andy and John have been Backlisted for years. Learned and lighthearted, these literary agents provocateurs are so far into old books they’re out of this world.

I Am the Eggpod – that’s Chris. He backtracks through the Beatles with erudition, daftness and fellow devotees.

Then there’s Bob, the mind and mouth behind Music History Monday. Professorial, opinionated and occasionally puerile, he’s the Pied Piper of the musical past.

Ah, it’s easy listening.
