First of these up now.

https://soundcloud.com/adam-buxton/the-adam-buxton-podcast-ep1-holiday-buffet-with-louis-theroux

It's mostly a discussion with Ken Korda Louis Theroux about hotel buffet etiquette, with a guest appearance by Baaaaaadaaaaad at the end. Bit more serious in tone than you might've thought, but it's pretty good. Nigel Buxton is [spoiler]90[/spoiler] now!

I wonder who the other convos are with and how often he will cast the pod.  I would have thought Cornballz will be on an episode.

Good god, you aren't kidding. I've never clocked the connection before

That was like a funny episode of 'The Moral Maze'.

Great hearing Buxton on the defensive against torpedoes again - always a highlight during the old A&J shows. Theroux's quite a good foil. Baadaad still sharply avuncular, which is lovely to hear.

I almost missed the little hidden skit after the closing music.

Or is there an RSS feed?  (I know you can just download from the soundcloud page, so not all that important, but I like using RSS.)

Ahh, brilliant! 'Bout time Buxton did something new!

I got the first episode through the Podcast Addict app, so I'm guessing it's on iTunes etc

I'm so easily amused that I always giggle at the rambunctious childishness of "my name is Adam Buxton I'm a MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN"

I love Adam, but I found the podcast to be meandering and pretty much laugh-free. If it's a comedy podcast, it needs to be funnier. If it's a discussion podcast, it needs to be snappier.
It was just two blokes talking for the majority of the duration.

I enjoyed it lots, myself.

I liked it okay.  It is just the first one so he's probably going to settle into a format.  It seems like he's reusing old conversations at the moment but once he starts doing new ones I think it'll pick up.  Or he'll just stop immediately.

Fuck offfffff.  Two blokes talking in a meandering fashion is exactly what I want from Buckles, and this was ace (and very funny, I thought.). I'll be very happy for this to continue as it is, like less intercut, more Buxtony Jon Ronson On.

Second one's up already – it's an interview with Lianne La Havas.

Yeah, agreed

Thought it was very funny, myself. And I loved how laidback it all was

And Bad Dad! It'd be great if he had a little cameo at the end of each episode

Reminds me of what an endearing tightwad Adam is.

(I only pilfer breakfast material when I think lunch might be hard to obtain. These continentals bring it on themselves, with ham, bread and cheese practically asking for it instead of harder-to-pocket beans and scrambled eggs)

I loved how he crumbled when shown the error of his stealing (yeah, I said it) ways.

Adam Buxton makes it OK to say, 'oh, man' and for that I love him.

New one up. From the synopsis it looks like 48 minutes of pure Buckles fun with no interview.

Lovely, low-key stuff. The Brian Eno affair was very heart-warming. I'm not sure anyone else would've gotten away with that without it seeming self-congratulatory, but Buxton deserved that little ego boost given the career knocks he's had.

A new Bond song next week!!

I'm finding these boring as fuck, I'm afraid.

I really enjoyed the first one. It didn't make me laugh out loud, giggle or even chuckle, but I thought it was a good listen.

It's a mark of how lovable Buckules is that I found myself feeling genuinely delighted when the Eno story turned around - it's such a recognisable fear, making a dick of yourself towards someone you admire. I love the ads at the end too.

Buxton has always bordered on the edge of being really good, not quite getting there though imo. Fuck him.I'm much more impressed with the hollywood career of his ex-partner.
