Taking Up Space is a internet radio show based in Canberra, Australia, which debuted in August, 2007. The show is hosted by Kraden, Emily, Nat, and Neil. It features multiple user segments, and covers topics ranging from entertainment to world news and Internet culture. The show is intentionally laid-back stylistically.
Unfortunately, due to internal problems the podcast was placed on an indefinite hiatus on July 14th 2008. Then on August 25th, 2008 Taking Up Space host Kraden returned to podcasting with a new show, ACTfur On Air.
- News Noms: The main hosts report news segments which they collected throughout the week, usually lasting no more than minute.
- That's Nasty!: An unusual food is described, then eaten on air.

- Silent Paranoia: RayLiehm investigates conspiracy theories, often ending his investigations with criticism of his subject.
- Blue Cat Central: Nanaki XIII sings about his life in a parodic manner. He accompanies his music with acoustic guitar and sometimes drums.
- This Rose has Thorns: Kelthoran muses or rants on a philosophical subject, displaying an eloquence compared to other segments. He ends every segment with, "On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?"
- 100 things I'd like to do before I die: X-Thunder reads down a list of things he wishes to do before he passes.
- Feedbork: Listener feedback from the last show is read.
