I love 'em. boring jobs at work, dog walking, washing up etc.

Apart from the BBC ones, and the Dave Gorman show on Absolute Radio and the Answer Me This podcast, can you suggest any other sites I might try?

I don't do podcasts but R4's The Infinite Monkey Cage always cracks me up when heard via the medium of wireless.

Frank Skinner on Absolute.

Also Adam & Joe (childish and nerdy but so what?)

It makes DIY a lot easier.

Thanks for the Answer Me This reminder - I've finally listened to one today! Sort of clever gentle humour (bit like QI), with a marvellously low irritation factor.

If you hadn't mentioned Dave Gorman I would have sugggested that the Beeb has a monopoly on this sort of thing. [I loved Gorman's 'Genuis' on BBC3, at least when the guests were any good].

I love Dave Gorman, but I think Genius worked much better on the radio.
Infinite Monkey Cage is also one of my favourites.

If you are not already using it, Radio Downloader can track BBC podcasts and download them automatically. A wonderful piece of software.
