Numbcast is a podcast from East Yorkshire, UK. It was started in April 2005 by Michael Tunnicliffe and featured various people playing music, having fun, and generally making fools of themselves.
Tunnie isn't here any more, but in October 2006 we brought back the podcast. The style of the new shows is similar, and the flow of new in-jokes doesn't show any signs of stopping. We're also trying to use Numbcast to promote local (and not-so-local) independent music.
It ain't called "An unnecessary podcast from Middle England" for nothing. We do it because it's fun, and we're attention whores.
Having said that, promoting music is cool too.

Podcasts are just audio files - you can download shows and listen to them on your computer, or put them on your MP3 player to enjoy later. For Numbcast, recent shows are listed on the home page with big orange download links.
A whole new world. Music, humour, politics, poetry, science, and people who are just as random as we are.
Podcast directories such as Odeo have thousands of podcasts, so the chances are there's something for you.
