This is the master list of Terry Pratchett, Discworld and Good Omens podcasts for this wiki. "Pratchett-ish" podcasts are in a separate table at the bottom of this page. We're also working on some lists of other podcasts with episodes about these topics, and all the podcasts with their own articles here will appear in the Podcasts category.

The table is sortable; the default order is active and complete podcasts by launch date, then inactive or unavailable ones, also by launch date.

Podcast Status

We try to update the status of the podcasts regularly; check the footnote on each table to see when it was last updated.

Here's an explanation of what our statuses mean:

  • Active” means the podcast is in production and new episodes are being released.
  • Complete” indicates the podcast has achieved its specific goal (e.g. discussing every Discworld book) or otherwise officially ended.
  • Inactive” means the podcast is not currently in production as far as we can tell.
  • Unavailable” means the podcast's episodes are no longer available from a public RSS feed or other reliably accessible source.

We usually wait a few months before marking a show as inactive; life takes precedence over podcasting for most fancasts, after all![17] Note that podcasts can and do return from long hiatuses, but a span of longer than six months off-air is rare, especially if the show is not well established.


  1. 1.0 1.1 We use the original publication date of the first episode, not including trailers. Most podcasts have an introductory "episode zero"; those count!
  2. 2.0 2.1 As of 14 August 2023.
  3. 3.0 3.1 A template with this abbreviated name has been set up to allow for quickly linking to this podcast. Type the acronym in braces, e.g. {{RMP}} will produce Radio Morpork. For more details, see Template:BookShortcut.
  4. Spotify rebranded their free hosting service Anchor as Spotify Podcasts, but since we want to make it clear these are links to the podcasts’ official page and not just their listing in Spotify, we’re leaving the Anchor links in place until they don’t work.
  5. After “compleating” the novels with their The Shepherd's Crown episode in June 2023, The Compleat Discography started a second season covering other Discworld works, kicking off with an episode about Tiffany Aching’s Guide to Being a Witch. No further episodes have been released so far.
  6. Switched from Sounder to Anchor in early 2023.
  7. It's difficult to date The Turtle Moves episodes, but 2008 is probably accurate, making it a pretty early podcast. See the show's page for more.
  8. Only the last thirty or so episodes are still available.
  9. Previously known as The Discworld Portal and a a variety of other names.
  10. The website no longer exists, though the URL does point to a placeholder page.
  11. At the moment we’re pretty loose about how we define this; basically the yardstick is “at least a few Pratchett-centric episodes, especially if they are doing them regularly, or read a lot of other authors popular with Pratchett podcasts”. Feel free to suggest other shows we should include!
  12. The listed date is a year earlier, but this seems to be an error based on the dates of all other episodes.
  13. No dedicated website; the page only links to the RSS feed and Spotify.
  14. Their first project is covering all of Discworld, but we’ve put them in the Pratchet-ish list because they intend to have a broader remit. (Their first episode mentions they have considered doing Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time, too.)
  15. Note that Stuck on Arrakis didn't start reading the Discworld books until season two, which began on 7 October 2020.
  16. Appears in podcast directories as just "Terry Pratchett", but the host identifies the show as Wikid Lizardz.
  17. For contrast, professional podcast statistics seem to consider a podcast active if it has released a new episode in the last 45 days.
