Quote from: gilbertharding on November 12, 2021, 09:52:53 AMI'll listen to these. I don't have much experience of BBC Sounds, but it seems to work OK... except the search function is utterly bobbins. I tried to find this yesterday, but couldn't remember the title, so I searched 'Jon Ronson'.Of course, because 'Jon Ronson' isn't in the title, it couldn't find it. For fuck's sake.
Quote from: icehaven on November 12, 2021, 04:27:17 PMYep I had to install the Sounds app to be able to download it too.
Quote from: Mister Six on November 12, 2021, 08:50:36 PMAnnoyingly, this isn't available in the US, at least on the Sounds app or BBC website. Anyone got a clever workaround?Even my usual VPN isn't working for some reason, but I'd rather listen to it on my phone anyway.
Quote from: George Oscar Bluth II on November 13, 2021, 06:02:58 AMVery annoying that the BBC calls things "podcasts" that are not available on public podcast feeds and are only available on their own app. Boo.
Quote from: olliebean on November 13, 2021, 12:22:15 PMEspecially when some of their programmes are actually available as proper podcasts. Leaves you wondering whether there is a podcast feed somewhere and you just don't know where to look for it. There's a page with a list of "podcasts" but no obvious way of telling which ones have an RSS feed other than clicking on one, then clicking on an episode (upon which the damn thing starts playing immediately), then clicking on the "Programme Website" link, then clicking "Leave this page" on the "Are you sure?" popup, then seeing if the programme website has a Podcast tab.

Quote from: BritishHobo on November 12, 2021, 09:06:14 PMI will give this a go, but I'm a bit wary. I loved So You've Been Publicly Shamed, thought it was a really important book - but then his podcast on August Ames' suicide disappointed me, because it felt like a dishonest and reverse-engineered attempt to prove public shaming definitely definitely didn't lead her to it. It's not necessarily that I think he's wrong, it's just that it came off very thin, with conclusions not really supported by the podcast. The cherry on top was the reveal that Ronson had contacted Ames' grieving husband only about a week after her death. Very weird, cynical thing.
