The Rewatchables 

One for the cineastes. A group of journalists rewatch a classic film and discuss it at length: the story, the stars, the director, the behind-the-scenes gossip.

It’s also a great way of finding out the actors who were considered for now iconic roles but didn’t get them. Recently there have been episodes on Saturday Night Fever, Halloween and Trainspotting.

 

The Adam Buxton Podcast 

Buxton’s podcast is too popular now to be described as a cult hit, but it does still have the feel of something relatively undiscovered.

The guests on what is essentially a chat show with humorous jingles have included Johnny Marr, Greta Gerwig and Vic Reeves.

 

Things Fell Apart

Jon Ronson explores the stories of today’s culture wars and talks to people involved – those who gave and took offence: a man who posted a joke online that was thought antisemitic, a woman disgusted by a Roger McGough poem, and the televangelist who invited an AIDS sufferer on to her show.

 

The Rest Is History 

Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook analyse why superheroes, created in the 1930s, have become a cultural phenomenon, and how cricket’s link with the British Empire helped it to become one of the world’s most popular sports.

There’s also 17th Century terrorism in the form of the 1605 Gunpowder Plot. There are more than 130 fascinating episodes.
