The QI Elf and Austentatious member tells us about his favourite podcasts
The No Such Thing As A Fish gang are the Elves who do all the research that makes BBC Two's QI such a fun show. Their podcast is about to hit a significant landmark and an 2019 annual features the stuff you should really know about everyone from Assange to Zuckerberg. One quarter of the NSTAAF collective, Andrew Hunter Murray, tells us which podcasts make him happy, sad and more intelligent.
Which podcast educates you?
The Briefing Room is a podcast by David Aaronovitch, where he gets genuinely non-partisan guests to discuss the issues facing the world today. It's fascinating hearing a discussion that doesn't descend into an argument every single week.
Which podcast makes you laugh?
Dear Joan and Jericha is a disgraceful, outrageous show in which Vicki Pepperdine and Julia Davis play horrific agony aunts answering made-up listener questions. It is indecently funny.
Which podcast makes you sad or angry?
Any podcast which gets more listeners than No Such Thing As A Fish, the pan-global fact-based phenomenon from the writers of BBC Two's QI, makes me both sad and angry.
