Podcasts

Does anyone know of any decent podcasts? I quite got into the Ricky Gervaise one for a bit, then stopped when they started charging and it invevitably, so I'm told, became not as good as it used to be.

Subsequent attempts to get into it have so far merely confirmed Sturgeon's Law that '90% of everything is crap', but I'm sure this can't be the whole story.

So c'mon kids, hook me up with the good stuff and show me where that 10% is hiding.

It's a vidcast, but Zé Frank's daily broadcast is entertaining:

Cheers for the Mark Kermode link. I already loved the guy, but this is especially wonderful. Just listening to the Wicker Man episode, in which he completely flips out about three different films in quick succession.

"If you pay money to see Little Man, SHAME ON YOU. I'm absolutely serious, SHAME ON YOU."
"What if you've already seen it?"
"Well, then, er, I suppose, SHAME ON YOU."
