    I tend to listen to podcasts as I ride (with my Aftershokz Trekz Air, so I can hear traffic still) but now I'm riding an hour most days, I burn through my usual teceh and NFL podcasts quite quickly. Can anyone suggest any?

    I'd quite like one on cycling/fitness perhaps, but also just any good podcasts would be welcomed. :)

    There’s a podcast by Trainer Road who do the online training program which is quite informative which I quite enjoy. It lasts about an hour so should fit in with your ride. The other one I listen to is the Cycling News podcast and when there is a grand tour on (dirty word coming up) I listen to Lance Armstrong’s one called The Move IIRC

    I got nothing on fitness, but lots of others...

    Adam Buxton, Richard Herring, Scroobius Pip are probably the premier UK interview based podcasts, imo. Marc Maron's WTF, and Dad Shepard's Armchair Expert are great USA ones.

    Films to be Buried With, by Brett Goldstein is a sort of Desert Island Discs for movies, and is really good.

    The Parapod, now ended after 3 seasons but with a film on the way, is a hilarious look at the paranormal. I've listened to most of it 2 or 3 times.

    Guys We ****** is a fun sex discussion podcast. They've gone behind a paywall now, and the show had dropped off in the last year or so before that (the openness and honesty of the two hosts being constricted by the increasing fame of the show), but it's worth tuning in from the beginning.

    Reply All, Love + Radio, and Radiolab are all fantastic journalistic looks at aspects of science, culture and humanity. All worth a look.

    Others I listen to a bit include id10t, Holly Randall (she's a porn photographer), David Tennant, Alec Baldwin, Chris D'elia, Hardcore Listing, Dan le Sac.....

    Oh, and both of Jon Ronson's series are well worth a listen.

    Then there's the stuff podcasts. Stuff they don't want you to know, stuff to blow your mind etc etc

    I like cyclingtips podcasts and The Move if you're into watching the tour/giro etc. Also not cycling related but Joe Rogan is usually great too, and LOTS of shows.

    Enjoying the ITV TdF podcasts, bit of fun whilst reviewing the days actions if you've been watching it.

    Watts Occurring by Geraint Thomas and Luke Rowe if you're into the Pro Peloton. Binge listened to all these as it is just two mates chatting for a lot of it like you would on a club run!

    TrainerRoad one is really informative.
    If you're into food at all (from a foodie perspective rather than nutrition) then Off Menu by Ed Gamble and James Acaster is hilarious

    For anyone wanting to learn a bit more about some of the stories of cycling in the past I listened to the first of Eurosport Re-Cycled podcast today and it was a thoroughly enjoyable short listen about the history of one edition of Paris Roubaix.

    Still loving Watts Occurring and Never Strays Far (Ned Boulting and David Millar)
