    Not one for podcasts and the like but going to try and get into them to change what i listen to as its all getting the same these days.Just listened to the BOB podcast with John Coates,bloody good podcast that one i thought.Not much in the sense on picking tips up off them (i too like systems and seems like i conduct myself (business) in very similar ways )but just a damn good chat between two genuine decs :thumbsup:.
    Nice one Wayners

    I've had a listen to a few of the 2decs1mic (twodecoratorsandamicrophone)podcasts now and I do like them.
    The son swears like a trooper and he openly admits he likes saying the C word :biggrin:

    I'll keep listening to it for the same reason as Jason above. The radio is sometimes very boring.

    @deanthedecorator Yes, keep on at him to get on there.

    Just thought I'd mention.
    I listen to Spotify and podcasts using an old mobile. Doesn't have a sim card in, so I can't stream as not connected to internet unless I'm at home on the WiFi, but that's not a problem. I've set up podcast app to download and update shows in the early hours over WiFi. Recently it burst open as battery swelled up :shocked:. Must be 4 years old. Took a punt and pulled apart and battery was easy swap so ordered one for £10 so now back up and running again. Loads of people have older smaller mobiles sitting in draws that will sit nicely in phone pocket with free podcast app or connected to speaker. Saves the best phone from getting knocked about. Think an old iPhone would be great for this as my old android phone phone is a bit too big for what i'm using it for.

    Back in 2009 I downloaded podcasts and music then loaded on old dum Nokia phone. Then I switched to mp3 player and would spend an hour on a Sunday downloading and loading on shows for the week.
    Now it's all automated with app on old spare phone.

    I use podcast addict but oh boy are there knobs and whistles in the settings. I've limited to 5 podcasts per episode and can't keep up with all the shows rolling out.
    Downloads at 2am every day automatically.
    Your can set the play speed so with the slow talkers you can increase the speed for that particular show which I have to do, just to try get through the many shows I have. I just can't get through them all though...
    Guess iPhone users just use iTunes?

    Yes I just use the podcast app on the phone used to download but I have too much data each month I just stream everything. Got Spotify as well but prefer to use the podcast app for podcasts, audible have a few podcasts too haven’t looked for decorating related ones on that yet. Noticed there’s a google podcasts app now too

    they do a free plan. Might splash out big time on the £1pm plan and really push the boat out. Anyway.. Will give me chance to update new shows if the mood takes me plus spare phone on different network to my current one for better coverage I guess. Can't knock free

    But you covered the everyday things that we all think about, it was like a chat with your mates... when we used to go up the pub. Remember those days?

    I said that to Chris after we finished recording. Good to vent about things. I used to like having banter in merchants. But with everything going online and covid that doesn't happen much nowadays.

    I have also just listened to the sky news podcast ‘the grey Zone’ about cyber warfare and misinformation. A very good listen too! I even forgot my elevenses.
