Appetite for Production

Tim Cant and James Russell are two irreverent and entertaining journalists with the "banter" and a few expletives to rip into music production news and a few laughs along the way. You will hear more than just music production news and reviews. Listen to the podcasts, Tim and James offer a peek into their lives as music journalists, with topics ranging from rat infestations to burnout syndrome. Definitely the most entertaining of the podcasts here.

Hanging out with Audiophiles

Created by musician and sound designer Jamie Lidell, Hanging Out with Audiophiles combines artist interviews, audio sketches and experiments, and gear reviews. Jamie's experimentation and musicality are central to the podcast. But he also attracts interesting artists, such as Oliver, whose sample packs Power Tools racked up over 1 million downloads on Splice, multi-instrumentalist Jack Garrett of Weathered fame, and Dave Rossum. Jamie has been podcasting since September 2017 and hopefully keeps going for a long time.
