Adam appears on the latest episode of the Sue Perkins podcast:
https://audioboom.com/posts/7423418-adam-buxton

It's a bit more 'Adam the serious man' than 'Adam the happy-go-lucky entertainer', but none the worse for it. A LOT of chat about his Dad, and also some disarmingly frank thoughts about mid life crises and bad parenting. It's an interesting listen, just not the funniest on the whole. Though there is an absolutely mint anecdote about inappropriate family viewing right at the end!

That episode opens with the most bizarre and crass ad I’ve ever heard in a podcast.

I've just clicked the link in the bit I quoted and it began with a sort of generic sketch about lamb. The one I was talking about, which I heard when I listened to the podcast on Spotify, began with Sue Perkins reading out a long and very strange press release about ice cream.

I'm still baffled by how podcasts have different ads in different places. I suppose it shouldn't be surprising but it is confusing. Are they baked into the episode audio or not?

The version on Spotify doesn't have that for me, or the generic lamb sketch. It has a generic ad for Tesco Clubcard.

I just tried it on Spotify again and got the lamb sketch.

edit: tried it again and got a Boots ad.

Strange technology.

The latest episode with Dawn O'Porter is particularly relaxed and rambly, they presumably know each other in real life. It's nice.

This isn't an original observation, but I'll make it anyway as I can't sleep and I'm bored: we've now reached the stage where pretty much every notable comedian in Britain has appeared on a podcast, either as a guest or a host.

I must've heard Stewart Lee waxing lyrical about Ted Chippington and The Fall more times than I've heard myself breathe. That's not Stew's fault, no one has forced me to listen, and if people ask him about this stuff then of course he's going to answer in the same way, but it's just the same cycle of guests and stories again and again.

I had no idea that Sue Perkins hosted a podcast until clicking on the link in this thread. But of course she has a podcast, everyone has a podcast. Not having a go at Sue, she's a really nice, funny, empathetic person who has every right to host a podcast if she wants, but it's never-ending, isn't it? Podcast overload.

'Nice' is a rather insensitive, weak sauce description of this particular episode, as Dawn talks openly about the death of her mother, but it's 'nice' in the sense that listening to people talk about this stuff is 'nice'.

Just wanted to clarify. Cheers.

Glad I kept listening until the end for that, didn't think much of the podcast up til then. I had an auntie just like how he described his mother in law. I'm up all night to get batty

Just a quick heads up that Joe is on the latest Films To Be Buried With podcast, talking about his favourite films. Which is always nice to listen to

Buckles is on the new Marie Curie podcast, talking about his Dad's death.

He's 'interviewed' by a bereavement expert about it all, and it's a weirdly intimate conversation. At times it feels like you're earwigging on something that you really shouldn't be.

I 'unno, I always enjoy his "You...died?  You died."

It's the 20 minute preamble of talking to boring creative types that tests me sometimes.  After that I enjoy it whoever's on.

It's one of the three annoying things Brett Goldstein does on his film podcast, the other things are (2) talking in small child's voice and (3) choosing guests who don't seem to have much interest in film.

At some point in the very near future, all British podcasts will just be celebrities talking about relatives dying.

Derren Brown is the latest - anyone listened? Is it a good ramble chat or is Derren in character, performing his 'I'm honestly a genius mentalist' shtick?

Is that something he does during interviews? As far as I'm aware he's always been at pains to point out that he's a magician/illusionist with a particular interest in psychology, as opposed to some sort of spooky wizard touched by genius.

There's no wanky grandstanding from old Der' in this episode, he just ramble chats casually as himself.

I listened to this one and really enjoyed it. He has the same voice and accent as Simon Pegg which confused me a few times, but it was worth the listen.

I’m also a big fan of DB - I think his silly/clever stage shows are always worth a watch.

Just my two cents worth about Vic - granted I only listened to the audio version of his episode, but I thought he was totally fine and actually revealed a few interesting tidbits I wasn't previously aware of. That slightly slurred, rambling mode of speech is something he does in lots of interviews whether booze is involved or not. Didn't ring any alarm bells for me at all.

Let’s not question Vic’s drunkenness, but instead query yours... this is the wrong thread.
