Chris Vallance | 00:16 UK time, Tuesday, 1 August 2006

At 2AM every Tuesday morning, about 3 hours before your average starling considers it worth winding up his pipes to greet returning night shift workers, Five Live plays host to a unique radio experiment. Pods and blogs is an hour of radio dedicated to covering the news as it's seen by bloggers, podcasters and the citizen media. It's our attempt to report the news members of the public are creating, discussing and sharing across the world thanks to the internet. The segment is broadcast nationally in the UK on MW, on FM on many of the BBC local stations and is available as a podcast. It began in 2005 with Rhod Sharp the host of Up All Night, Kevin Anderson (who has since left us to become the Guardian's Editor of Blogs) and Chris Vallance who also produces the segment. We also enjoy regular contributions from the bloggers behind the Britblog Roundup.

We want you to be part of this. The segment needs your ideas and your suggestions for stories, guests and approaches to topics. If you've found a good blog, a great podcast or have an interesting story to tell leave a comment on the blog or send an email to, or reach us on twitter or join our facebook group And you don't have to pull an all-nighter to take part; you can listen online any time of day thanks to our podcast and online streaming audio archive.
