Now that I have to endure seemingly hours of traffic each day, I've taken to downloading podcasts.

I'm loving the 1990s' Old Skool house stuff, the chilled house beats etc. But I also want to do some talking standup comedy for the drive home.

Any recommendations of podcasts that are free in the apple store?

"No such thing as a fish" is brilliant. It's from the group of QI researchers who discuss weird facts. Intellectual comedy at its best.

"Friday Night Comedy Show" from Radio 4 is also good for a laugh.

Both free.

Freakonomics is brilliant and has been my favourite podcast for years.

The Bugle is supposed to be funny (if you like John Oliver, Stephen Colbert style humour) and so is WTF with Marc Maron, but I haven't personally listened to either of these.

Thank you. I listened to No such thing last night. Was great.

ah, maybe I need to try a few more. I've listened to two now and it just didn't grab me as much as I thought it would. But then again, an interview with the World Bank president was never going to set the world on fire.

Heaps of podcasts on BBC R4 and R$ Extra. You should also be able to set up regular downloads to itunes of your favourite shows

I second this.

Also, I know you don't like football so try; The Football Ramble. At first you think they're a bunch of pricks, but they grow on you and they're very funny.

Thanks to others for the suggestions. My commute has changed from 30mins in the morning and 40-70mins in the evening to....well, down one lift. About 150 paces to the next building, up a lift in there. ****ING YES!

The podcast of Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio show is my personal favourite. You can, I think, still get all the podcasts of Dave Gorman’s now deceased Absolute Radio show which are very funny. There’s also one of Danny Baker’s radio show which is decent. The Richard Herring Live at Leicester St Theatre and his Edinburgh Fringe podcasts are very good also.

For music I like the If There is Hell Below, All Back and No Front, IAX, Hospital Records and the Line of Best Fit. Some are regular, some less so.

I did find Dave Gorman. He is brilliant.
