Including Richard Herring, The Guilty Feminist and Festival City Podcast
For the second year The List is recording our own Edinburgh Festivals podcast, this year titled Festival City Podcast. It's released throughout August and features recommendations from our reviewers, performer interviews, live music and the musings of our host and theatre editor, Gareth K Vile.
All the cool kids have a podcast these days and at the Fringe you can be part of the illustrious live audience. Here's our pick of the podcasts recording episodes during August
The Guilty Feminist
Please welcome to the stage Deborah Frances-White, as well as a selection of special guests, as they discuss their noble goals as 21st-century feminists and the hypocrisies and insecurities which undermine them.
The Guilty Feminist, Underbelly George Square, 4 & 5 Aug, 5.10pm, £14 (£13).
Richard Herring's Edinburgh Fringe Podcast
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first Fringe, Herring hosts three live recordings of his chatty comedian podcast. He thought he'd booked Saturdays, but they're on Fridays – still at least he has his trusty book of off-the-wall questions.

The Carl Donnelly and Chris Martin Podcast Live!

Janey Godley's Podcast Live at the Fringe
Comedian Janey Godley and her daughter, comedian Ashley Storrie, are some 350 episodes plus into their podcast. Expect bawdy language, home truths, politics and whatever else the pair fancy nattering about.
Janey Godley's Podcast Live at the Fringe, New Town Theatre, 12 Aug, 1.50pm, £10 (£8).
Matt Forde's Political Party Podcast
Former political adviser Matt Forde interviews former MP Alistair Darling, Labour's Chancellor of the Exchequer from 2007–10 and chairman of the Better Together Campaign, for this Edinburgh edition of his monthly podcast.
