Probably the most popular podcast I listen to, so likely won’t be news to many of you, but without fail No Such Thing As A Fish has managed to educate and humour me with every single episode. Some are funnier than others, some are definitely more quite interesting* than others, but regardless it’s never not a wonderfully silly listen.
The people behind it were/are all researchers involved with QI (*hence the rather horrible wording) and each week each of the four panellists (aka QI elves) bring one fact that they discovered in the past week, along with some background research of other interesting and related tidbits. It sounds dull, but the four main members of the team are engaging, witty, knowledgeable and funny, and keep the entire 30-40 mins light, fast paced and mostly hilarious.
It may be a little on the geeky side, but it’s the only podcast that makes me laugh out loud on a regular basis.
Note: there is some swearing and depending on the topic, it can be quite rude, but that’s half the fun!
