Anyone here subscribe to the Gittins Patreon?

If so, how is it? I love the Gittins and Friends podcast so I’m toying with signing up. It’s taken me a long time to come around to the idea of Patreon, but Boldsworth’s regularly updated one has me looking for more.

I'm on it. It's worth it for the extra long pods.

Easily worth it. Without doing him down, you don't have to chip in much to get the good stuff - early podcasts, longer podcasts, bonus bits, videos of recordings, good chatting from Earl.

On the extended Sleaford Mods one, for example, David is asked to ad lib a lengthy version of 'All Creatures Great and Small', which is one of my favourite moments from any of the podcasts so far.

Is there a video version of every episode since the Patreon started?

Hope, the videos only go back a little while and there haven't been vids of the last couple cos his camera's broken. But he warned the Patrons about that, and he's recently really upped the amount of stuff he's been doing with the Patreon. As mentioned above, some of the extra podcast bits justify the money alone.

He's just uploaded a 'Best of 2018' pod to Patreon, which will probably be released on other channels in a few days.

Might be a good introduction for anyone who hasn't got into BG&F yet.
Or, alternatively, it might be totally baffling!

I hope it's a compilation of David singing different lyrics over the same tune.

There is some singing in there.
Well, 'singing'...

A certain impression David does of a relative experiencing ghostliness might be my favourite noise he's ever made.

Oh wow. How long after appearing on Patreon are they usually released? An Edwards Dodds combination is something I need

The pilot episode of his Gossipmongers podcast with Joe Wilkinson has been uploaded on Patreon. Very silly and enjoyable. I laughed a lot.
Not sure if/when it'll be released elsewhere, but hopefully the positive feedback will mean it's out soon.

I bloody loved that.  The "Indian Incest" and "WellieBaby" stories in particular creased me up.  Thought the music got a bit intrusive at points, personally, but I really hope there's more of these.  And I'm glad David' Earl's finally doing a few things as himself.  I loved the Gittins podcast where he was playing Brian and Steve "Cumbo" Cumberland at the same time, and nearly broke character admitting that he was going to struggle to keep a 2-way conversation with himself going for 40 minutes.

I really like David Earl.

Yes! Loved it. You can feel how much they're all genuinely making each other laugh, and it's really cool to hear Poppy involved. Oddly found the robot stuff really worked too - nice ambient music, and I kinda like that the robots are always part of his stuff. I'm relistening to the Spreaker shows and I forgot how much Peter the robot made him laugh. I love that people from the Spreaker shows - David, Poppy, Charles - have ended up being heavily involved in his later stuff.

Just listened to it. Brilliant. The whispering, shouting about video nasties had me floored

I'd quite like to set David's impression of his sister being dragged up the stairs by a ghost as my ringtone.

Me too.
No idea why that would be so funny but, as soon as David started yelling in the distance, I was gone.

Full series of Gossipmongers starts next month following the response to the pilot.

Desperately trying to remember some rumours so I can join in.

I'm not sure I've ever heard any rumour that could top Welly Baby.

The bar has been set pretty high!

The one about my old French teacher in the public toilet just won't cut the mustard.
