Formally known as the “Crave Podcast“, the “CNET UK Podcast” is unsurprisingly produced by CNET UK, which you, guessed it, is the UK wing of CNET. This is a weekly audio show, hosted by the members of CNET UK’s “Crave” editorial team (don’t worry if the names are confusing you, you’ll get used to it), shows are usually between 30 to 50 minutes.
Before getting into the content, I’ll give kudos to the guys who produce this for being one of the most ever-evolving shows I’ve listened to. The format of the show often reinvents itself, so the following run down is subject to vary. All that said, every week you can at least expect to hear discussions about a selection of news stories from the tech world, followed by reviews of new gadgets and products from each host, followed up by answers to listener submitted questions from the CNET UK Forum. The podcast has its own dedicated forum section, called the CNET UK Podcast Lounge. Time for full disclosure, I have been a listener of the podcast for so long that they made me a moderator on the Podcast Lounge, so please take my bias into account when I say I think you really ought to come and join the Podcast Lounge where you can discuss and rant about tech to your heart’s content!
The show is currently running a three presenter set up, with Ian Morris (@ian9outof10) and Nate Lanxon (@natelanxon) as permanent hosts. The third host usually varying between Rich Trenholm, Nick Hide, Andrew Lim, Rory Reid, and occaisionally Jason Jenkins.
One last thing to throw in, another reason I enjoy the CNET UK Podcast is that it is one of the very few UK tech podcasts. Most of the podcasts I listen to are American, which is fine, I like Americans, although nothing beats a topic you enjoy being covered with people from your own culture.
