The Amateur Family History Podcast

It's billed as "A series of podcasts about the basics of UK family history." Emphasis is England and Wales.

Early episodes are a 'how-to' guide covering the basics — getting started, 1939 Register, census, birth, marriage, death, parish records, newspapers, cemeteries. Later episodes cover somewhat more advanced techniques and in-depth topics — FreeBMD behind the scenes, DNA, places, wills and probate, 1910-1915 valuation survey.

The 30-minute episodes are well-produced, the presentation fairly casual.
