Take the sports category for example, full of sports news and podcasts for your listening pleasure. Within the sports category we take a look at two podcasts in particular, both created by SBS in Australia, a semi public funded radio and TV broadcaster.

Let’s start with The World Game. As Australia’s flagship football (or soccer) podcast, the show covers the vast topics of world football, champions league and also Australia’s own A League. Start following them now to keep up to date with what’s what in Football! Here’s the lastest podcast, check out their use of the timed comments so you know what topics they cover and where.
