*A Scottish podcast – A darkly humorous comedy-horror that anyone Scottish (like myself) will appreciate.
Wooden Overcoats – Deliciously funny shenanigans at a family run funeral parlour.
The Amelia Project – In my top 3 podcasts of all time. About the goings on of an enigmatic service that fakes clients’ deaths.
Wrong Station – A diverse and hauntingly told horror anthology series.
The Lost Cat Podcast – The weird and wonderful journey of a narrator looking for his cat. Alernatively, the wild hallucinations of an alcoholic looking for his probably non-existent cat.
Welcome to Night Vale – I don’t feel the need to add a synopsis because this is the Godfather of most podcasts. Even I’d heard of it from under my podcast-less rock.

Mission Rejected – The haphazard adventures of understudy special agents.
