Well I stumbled upon this podcast because Siri accidentally heard me say “Play boring news” 😂. And she started to play this podcast. Although it isn’t really news related this podcast, it is boring just as advertised🥱. But it is boring in a soothing way.

Dear James- I’ve been waiting for you and your guest contributors to come back! I really miss the podcast and even have the episodes on the Dutch Paintings and Asterix on repeat when I’m having a difficult day. They make me laugh and relax me at the same time. Come back!!!

I miss this show so much and relisten to old episodes all the time. All I want for Christmas is more Boring Talks.
mspassell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/23
This podcast is the perfect mix of obscurity, borderline lunacy, and fascination--all wrapped up in a perfect little 15-20 min package. If only it were still active....alas. Please bring the boring talks back!

So you think: ‘Why would any sane person want to know about pallets? Seriously?’ And then 15 minutes later: ‘Wow! I never knew pallets could be so amazing!’ This podcast is FANTASTIC. I don’t know how they do it, but it’s Just. So. Interesting.
Awes0mest via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/06/21
It’s boring. It’s interesting. It’s the perfect balance. I have an issue with most podcasts that is advertised for sleeping because I usually get too interested and soaked up in the story or topic. But this podcast is perfect! It doesn’t make my eye roll and be like ‘this is totally useless and...Read full review »

I love this show because it helps me to get to sleep. And for the first time in my life helps me to sleep IN. It's not boring...I always go back and start the show again so that after a while I DO actually hear each episode in its entirety. And it's self deprecating humour at its best.Read full review »

I love this podcast SO much, it’s incredibly fascinating and educational! I’m really hoping there’s a new series for this year too?? Please please please find more boringly fabulous topics to discuss & share with us.
ivegotacastle via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/21/21
So basically it’s to interesting for if you are trying to sleep so I’m giving it a four star
dogsssssssssssssssssssssssaaa via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/06/21
I’m not a nerd(yes I am) but I really enjoy this podcast. Especially the one about pallets!
Kimsmum via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/05/21
(Where are the rest of the episodes? No more since mid 2020?) I’ve always had an interest for uninteresting topics or random knowledge. This pod is perfect for that quest to know more about topics you don’t need to know about but are fascinated by once you do. I’ve been listening when I go out...Read full review »

10 minute vignettes of fascinating, relaxing calmness. These have got me through lockdown - more please

I’ve found the best pod in the world. I want more and more!
DNJ62 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/08/20
I came across this podcast last year and always keep a few on my mp3 player. I love the way people with a passion for a completly random topic gets to share their wonder at something.
Serendipitous and quirky via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 09/11/20
I’ve listened to this podcast for awhile now, a lot of the topics are some that I found so interesting I was too invested to fall asleep! I absolutely love the theme tune too and James is a great host :).
Evie.12 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/08/20
Me and my dad love listing to this to get me to sleep and I am obsessed with pencils,the pencils episode was amazing 😊
ForRealz2012 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/24/20
Some are obviously more boring than the others,, but it’s an interesting selection.
piopawlu via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 08/12/20
Underneath it all, I think this podcast is about the uniqueness of every one of us. And yet, in every single episode, there is always something to empathise with... We are such a weird race, and here, our foibles are quietly celebrated. So random you never quite have a clue what’s coming next,...Read full review »
Ach_ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/29/20
I always listen to this podcast before I go to sleep!
wittyathena via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 07/25/20
I enjoy this pod very much for some reason. I find it to be very soothing and informative.. all except for the episodes about breakfast cereals and the one on lesbian relationships or something like that? Polyamory? I don’t remember But I know I found them both to be extremely annoying and...Read full review »

The part of this boring talk about the boots of hearses was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
jeeeneta via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/11/20
I have been hooked since Day One but the ice cream ‘man’ from Church Crookham has finally inspired me to write this - despite never having reviewed anything online in my life. Episode #19 has changed me forever. I can feel a boring talk coming on ...
Radmodz via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/13/20
This is one of my favourite podcasts - there's something truly beautiful about being a true fan of something - to love something without shame and so fully. This show gives people an oppertunity to talk about things that excite them, and low-key these talks would leave any 99% Invisible fans...Read full review »

Llama 2289 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/03/20
I thought this would be more of a boring ASMR type thing meant to help you sleep but instead it is truly quite captivating. You will want to hear each bit and detail. It is calming but once you start listening closely you will want to hear it to the end. Well done. 👍🏻
boomdiggles via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/20
Ideal late at night when you just can’t sleep. Much better that counting electronic sheep. Only quibble , it’s not boring. Keep it up Mr Ward!
PaddyGoesToHolyhead via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/06/20
Listen to this podcast when you’re about to sleep. Better than Nyquil especially with those thick accents
metal14 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/20
It’s random and interesting and I had no idea I was interested in this stuff
DangerReefe via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/21/20
Takes me ages to listen to a whole episode as I often fall asleep, not that it’s boring at all. I absolutely love this podcast.
Inter your nan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/20
I love this podcast. It’s well produced and fascinating listening to people talk about their obsessions.
Rawhide-Kid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/20
This is humane, and a quiet kind of gold.
Sapienaustralis via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 03/06/20
Such a lovely, original and interesting show. Love listening to this.
Destini111 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/03/20
Great to have the Boring Talks podcast back. A highly recommended way of spending 20 or so minutes of your otherwise dull existence.
London Broncos Fan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/27/20
I fear I’ve found my tribe! I love this podcast, all the talks are fascinating. Nothing boring about any of these! So glad this podcast is back.
Ms Moll via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/17/20
Don’t believe the label!
Benny3.14 via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 02/10/20
This podcast is really boring and that is good because I listen at night and it helps me fall asleep because it is boring.😴🤤 The only thing is, I can’t stand the accents!😕
playfulpanda444 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/20
Wonderful to listen too. Interesting and relaxing. I’m glad there are people in the world who follow their passions and interests. I’m also glad they are able to share them with us. Please, please, please make more programmes.
GameByte via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/06/19
I love this podcast. I listened to the first one just out of curiosity but had to subscribe straight away. As others have said all the speakers love their subject and this really comes across and draws you in. The episodes on pallets, Astrix puns, vaginas and the silence on Watergate tapes are my...Read full review »

I listen when I can’t sleep. Love the cultured British accent and the offbeat topics. Looking for new episodes.
lv2hike via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/19
Sorry you have failed ...this podcast is not boring. Both me and my 10 year old daughter really enjoyed it. People explain their ideas with clarity and subtle humour. Great job

A treasure trove of random trivia, and wonderfully British. I am working my way through all of the archives and loving all of it. Give it a listen, and be fascinated by the mundane.
NicoleT ATL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/19
I discovered this podcast when I was bored, and it is one of the best discoveries I’ve made... Stories are interesting, informative and narrated in a way that is really soothing. I hope you guys continue to upload episodes and investing in this wonderful podcast.

This podcast talks about things I didn’t even know I wanted to know.
