Title: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Phil_A on September 18, 2015, 09:46:13 PM
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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Found the cold diary one a bit of a slog. But that's mainly due to it making me feel a bit ill myself, hearing about someone feeling ill

The rest have been very good though, and all pretty different. So it's clear it's still finding it's feet

No mention of his brief Edith Bowman assisted radio run, though. I actually didn't mind that series as much as some others, but still think Buckles and Lisa Tarbuck would do a great show together. They really had fantastic chemistry when he appeared on her show a few years back. I love that he pissed off that sour old tit Paul Weller along the way too

He says him and Joe had recently discussed doing some live shows to celebrate 20 years, which would mean some time next year?

Also I hadn't realised the pilot for the Buxton/Linehan space sitcom was filmed months ago. Have any CaBbers seen it?

I enjoyed Jennings' father-in-law anecdote greatly. Very foolish brave of him to share it publicly! I'm very intrigued by his new animation project - I was wondering recently why he hadn't made anything since Son of Rambow and assumed his career was in the toilet. How wrong I was!

Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Crabwalk on November 11, 2015, 07:11:30 PM
I wasn't particularly interested in him either, until I recently started watching 'Catastrophe' (and the implication is that for Buxton it was the same). It's absolutely one of the best British comedy series for years and he's brilliant in it.

Delaney's not particularly funny in the podcast though (neither is he trying to be). It's much more of a forensic look at his life and work, rather than one of Adam's patented chatrambles, down mainly to the fact that this is the first time they've properly conversed. Subsequently they both seem a little tentative and not quite on the same comedic wavelength. It is an interesting listen, though.

Am I a bit off base in thinking that Joe's Hollywood career is tanking a bit?

After Attack The Block, there hasn't been much has there? Him and Edgar Wright left or were sacked from Ant Man, he was meant to get the King Kong prequel gig, but somehow didn't, and you don't really hear his name much on film sites and podcasts

And am I doubly off base for kinda hoping his career does tank, so he does more stuff with Buckles?

Post by: Shameless Custard on November 22, 2015, 07:08:44 PM
I really tried to warm to her whilst listening to the podcast, but she is pretty annoying isn't she? She keeps mentioning how funny she is, which is really off-putting, and tries to speak like a teenager which is a bit cringeworthy.

Not as cringey as the story she told of sitting next to a bloke on a plane who she thought might be a terrorist and "try to talk him out of his ways", "just in case". Cos that just didn't happen, did it? And if it did, then she's an idiot

I think that's my biggest problem with her. I read her book, and not much of it rings true. Like she's presenting her life as far more eventful and funny than it actually is. I know that's what comedians do, and that's probably what she tells herself, but she's not a comedian. Just a hack, who comes out with the odd funny line in her columns

She's so clearly in love with her 'ol self, that it's just impossible to warm to her. And THAT face she does. THAT face

No doubt she's a nice lady when not playing the character she puts on, but I doubt we'll ever get to see that person. It's all artifice, and self-conscious kookiness

I think I'm more of a Grace Dent man, me
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: tomasrojo on November 22, 2015, 09:22:09 PM
It was a really minor point in all the other things she said, but why does her husband have to do all the shopping just because she doesn't drive? It's her own business, but you can surely go shopping in London without a car?

I never before knew how she pronounced her name. Interesting to hear that there is a second way to mispronounce it, apart from the American one.

(It's entirely up to people how they pronounce their own names, but it isn't even her real first name. Now, I think about it, her surname is also mispronounced, but since the original pronunciation sounds rather like "Moron", it's not surprising that people outside Ireland favour the British pronunciation.)
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: idunnosomename on November 23, 2015, 08:52:41 AM
Not wanting to turn the Dr Buckles thread into a Caitlin Moran punching bag, but she is a detestable narcissist. Looks like a bag lady, writes like a child (with the amount of em-dashes she uses the only person who hates her more than me must be her copy editors), but she keeps winning journalist of the year and lauded as a intellectual of new feminism that just fuels her delusions that she has anything to say. She's a bit like Russell Brand, a much more dangerous breed of celebrity than the anonymous fashionistas like the Kardashians: at least they don't broadcast every one of their worthless thoughts as if it could revolutionise society. But unlike Russell Brand, she's never quite high-profile enough to get a backlash. She's either fairly clever about over-exposure or has The Times paywall/paycheck to thank.

Boycotting Twitter for a day to protest its insufficient control of trolls sums her up. A day! One single day! Maybe if she kept her mouth closed for a fucking day I'd be impressed.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: hedgehog90 on November 23, 2015, 09:41:57 AM
I wrote a pretty long post for this thread expressing why I found the Caitlin Moran episode almost unlistenable, but I didn't post it for fear of it coming across as hateful.
I largely agree with the previous posts, but it does look a bit like a bit of a pile on.
I don't think she's a bad person, she's just a bit of a wally.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Shameless Custard on November 23, 2015, 09:42:34 AM
I did laugh a bit when she was telling Buckles about her average morning

It went something like: Get up, husband brings me coffee, I fanny about on Twitter "for half hour", then I wash and start working

She's on Twitter posting bumdash every minute of the day! Just look at her feed! Constant

I can't remember the ins and outs of the exchange, but around the time of the Limmy debacle, she also got into it with Fleet Street Fox (who's also a bit rubbish), and she just came across like a kid throwing a tantrum. She clearly is not used to someone popping her balloon and pointing out she is talking rubbish, or having to discuss something properly with someone. She's not on Twitter for that. She just wants people to laugh at her hacky, weak-sauce thoughts of the day, and say how wonderful she is

I've seen her use the misogynist card on a few people (no doubt justified in some cases, knowing the Twitters. Think she tried that one on Limmy too, at one point), so it was interesting to see her losing that option whilst arguing with a fellow female. She had nothing, there was nothing in the tank
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: tomasrojo on November 23, 2015, 09:52:15 AM
I didn't think it was totally unlistenable. The anecdote about Lady Gaga was pretty interesting, and the discussion about wee reprises was quite funny. These two bits had substantial input from Adam Buxton; the less it became a monologue the better it was, which is I guess what you'd expect from a conversational podcast.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: KennyMonster on November 23, 2015, 11:36:12 AM
I'm sorry to hear these negative comments but I really enjoyed listening to her on this podcast have have started following her on Twitter as a result.

I didn't use to like her back in the Melody Maker/Naked City days and have been sceptical recently because she writes on The Times but listening to her interview I admired what she had to say.

I hope I'm not wrong in that I liked her and I was only feeling that because I was already in a good mood that day.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: jake thunder on November 23, 2015, 12:28:54 PM
Yeah, I enjoyed the Caitlin Moran one. It was fine. I found the Ronson and Delaney ones more annoying.

I love Ronson's books and in person he's seems lovely, but he's worse than Moran at "presenting her/his life as far more eventful and funny than it actually is/his" and shoehorning in anecdotes from his books.

Moran seemed alright once they got onto to less serious subjects.

It's just nice to have Buxton podcasting again.  He's very likeable and funny. I'm hoping he doesn't stray too far into Marc Maron territory. I really don't need to hear about Josh Widdecome's problems with depression. Also, fuck up about Twitter yo. Boring.

I'm also fine with solo episodes.

I think he reads CookdandBombd, doesn't he?
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Depressed Beyond Tables on November 23, 2015, 12:29:05 PM
There are just so many good podcasts out there that there is no incentive to listen to her for an hour. Nothing personal. I've never found her funny and her opinions are often half-baked. The female Russell Brand comment was pretty accurate. Speak first, ponder later, or even better, don't bother.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Entropy Balsmalch on November 23, 2015, 02:09:10 PM

Lianne La Havas has also been on the podcast, and I thought she was very fun and likeable

I hope he gets Liza Tarbuck on one week, as they have great chemistry

Sarah Millican and Grace Dent are far funnier than Moran. And as annoying as I find her on Twitter, Emma Kennedy I could imagine would be a decent guest. Bridget Christie. Francesca Martinez. Mel and/or Sue. Shappi Khorsandi. Others I'm forgetting

Plenty of entertaining womens

I thought Scroobius Pip was a bit shit, too. And he has a willy!

Did you hear Bridget Christie on The Comedian's Comedian Podcast?

I found that a really awkward listen. I felt she was very combative.

And, to balance out any sexism, I found the Rob Delaney one far duller than Caitlin. It reminded me of WTF which I had to stop listening to after realising the vast majority of American comedians are extremely dull, career minded and overly earnest.

I've not bothered with the Delaney one yet. Or Rob Brydon, as I feel like I've heard more Rob Brydon interviews than I'll ever need.

I've only heard and read small bits from Bridget Christie, but I have so far found her enjoyable enough. Will check out the podcast you mentioned!

I know I'm just mentioning any funny woman around now, but Jenny Eclair also. I could see her and Buckles getting on pretty well. Jennifer Saunders. My mum. There's a million funnier and/or more engaging women than Moran

I really enjoyed Rob Brydon, it's the first interview I've heard with him where he's been 'off', if you know what I mean. Also enjoyed Rob Delaney because I like Rob Delaney, but I'd heard most of it before, and his voice caaaan geeeet a liiiiiidle biiiit repetetiiiiiiiive aaaafter a whiiiiiiile.

Other than that I still think these have been a bit of a waste of time, just because of the dull (to me) guests really. Can't wait for Joe though.

Post by: idunnosomename on November 23, 2015, 05:05:28 PM
I turned off the Rob Delaney one too because I had no idea who he was and I found it really boring.

Scroobius Pip was a surprise, rather enjoyed his, especially him talking about overcoming his stammer.

Rob Brydon, well, I did think him going on about the middle-age hangover that took him a week to get over was very funny. Always an amiable listen.

Probably this would all be a lot better if Adam had an editor to really get the best out of everything. The runtimes have been spreading. Over an hour is a bit much, really.

I didn't find it unlistenable, but she always reminds me of an old boss of mine whose stories almost always ended with the sentiment "And then everyone there told me just how brilliant I was!"

Did he then top them off with "It was very humbling"?

Sorry, completely irrelevant to the thread but one of my bugbears is the misuse of the word "humbling" or "humbled" by people describing how some accolade or plaudit has made them feel.

I empathise entirely. They all seem to treat podcasting as an extension of counselling - "it's not that I don't want to work, it's that at this stage in my life, I just really don't have the time and want to focus on other stuff." You know the sort of patter. British comedians, by contrast, just seem happy to treat the whole thing as pre-drinks meet up with a mate before heading down the pub. I know which I prefer.

The Lowdown did devote an episode to a teenage trainspotting enthusiast and it called him Carter, The Unstoppable Spotting Machine and the trailer played music from 90s indie guitar band Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine.

I never saw the actual programme, only the trailer.

Also, fuck up about Twitter yo. Boring.

Agree. Some podcasts would work a lot better for me if Twitter was completely banned as a subject. Graham Linehan mentioning Twitter at the earliest opportunity makes me cringe. Al Murray banging on about people on Twitter makes me sleepy. Twitter is just so amazingly insignificant and inconsequential. Anyone who mentions it as part of their schtick is asking to be ignored.

I haven't listened to any of the Buxton podcasts yet but I have a few downloaded and ready to go. I'm looking forward to it but Buxton having anything to do with Caitlin Moran is most discouraging and perturbing. As far as I can see he's managed to get this far in his career without any Caitlin Moran at all yet here we are now at this stage of the game with some Caitlin Moran. Most dispiriting.

Going through my old hard drive which has stacks of Adam and Joe stuff on it I found this - which I totally forgotten about.

By the way, by going through all that I've discovered I have....

XFM Shows - 44 episodes - some incomplete - with the music edited out. Not all of their XFM run by a long way, but loads still.

BBC 6 Music - Nearly all of their 6 Music shows. Missing all of their stand in time on the breakfast show - but bar the odd one or two, everything - most of the shows with the music snipped out - but not all of them.

Various other bits and pieces like I Am Sparticus and A Week With Adam Buxton.

I'm really annoyed though that I seem to have lost the XFM podcasts somewhere - and they were great - loads of amazing extra material.

I also seem to have lost Adam's Big Mixtape - which was also great - particularly the one where Paddy Considine didn't turn up and he did the show as Ken Korda.

In total it's more than 8gb of stuff - but if people want it, I'll find a way somehow of distributing it.

Ha, haven't heard that in years. "Sorry, Scalliwag, we got overexcited." "Yeah yeah yeah, alright, don't cry!"

I've only ever heard this on here (yeah, about ten years ago) and divorced of context. Was this from a proto version of Song Wars from the XFM shows or was Scalliwag a recurring thing? There's so much of the XFM stuff I've never heard.

Scalliwag definitely appeared a few times, thinking about it now, on the XFM show. I think he was just a character at first. I don't think this was ever broadcast on the show itself. Perhaps it was just a download on adam dash buxton dot co do youkay-ay-ay, so check it out.

Just google Adam and Joe archive, each episode is listed with a link to the mp3. I suppose a torrent is easier though.
Also, that Scallywag song was played during an XFM show. Adam did quite a few songs as him, but I think only 2 survived.

Reminds me of the amazing radio serial with Lench Poofar and Jenny they did on XFM, it only exists as short clips on YouTube, but the shows surrounding them aren't available as far as I'm aware.
Look it up if you haven't heard it. The mention of Roni Size Reprazent in the final part and Adam cracking up is utterly joyous.

Does anyone know much about the music that Adam makes? i.e. is it mostly backing tracks from Royalty Free sites and the like, with him just adding his vocals, or does he have more of a hands on approach? Or does he work with some producer types? Some of them songs are quite nicely done.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Entropy Balsmalch on December 31, 2015, 02:04:42 AM
His production skills have grown hugely over the years. At first it was just Apple backing tracks. Then he utterly rinsed Garageband. In fact, Joe and his use of GB is some of the best I've heard. Adam then started to use more and more outboard stuff and play more and more of his tracks himself rather than using loops. His vocal production is also excellent. In fact, even in the early days, his layering of vocals has always been pretty great. Listen back to that Scallywag track I posted in another thread.

Nowadays you get a bit of both from him. He does still use backing tracks a lot, but more for stabs and little bits and pieces. He's also moved on to Logic.

I don't think you really can select certain episodes, though! They're all great, and well worth ploughing through the lot.

If it's just a taster you'd like, I'd suggest maybe having a listen to some segments on the YouTubes?

For starters, I'd recommend STEVEN!, talking through the floorboards, Points Of View, cinema phone listings, black cotton-bud and sister's pants, Joe's impression of Jools Holland, bad news for him, and R Kelly trapped in the closet

It's impossible really. One of my favourite ever moments is Adam and Joe discussing Hugh Heffner's advent calendar. Fuck knows which pop it's on though. Same with Joe highlighting the problem with Adam's "Bath as Stargate" proposal.

Just listen to them all and remember I envy your virgin ears.

Sorry if this is a silly question/already answered, but have you got the XFM podcasts? I think these are still available from usual podcast sources, and they're mostly quite short. They also have the advantage that you don't constantly get the XFM stings. From memory, I think R Kelly is in the second one, while the first contains one of my favourite jingles ever.

Loved the Xmas podcasts with Joe, although their dynamic has changed a bit from the 6Music days. Adam seemed unashamedly fanboyish at times, asking questions about Hollywood actors and filmsets. Also his reaction to the chair psychology test result ("you are disappointed with your present career, and are at a crossroads.." seemed very genuine.

He said he plans to monetize this podcast in 2016; I wonder if he's looking for a radio-station tie in or private sponsors (like most podcasts now have). Kickstarter would do the job more easily (I'd pay!).

They look like they're the edited down podcast versions, rather than the full episodes. I think the XFM shows, sans music, come in around an hour

The BBC shows are usually 90 minutes or so

Sorry, I should have been clearer: these are not full shows, but edited highlights taken, if memory serves, from a range of shows. They are, however, good for getting hold of some XFM material, and for gauging whether it's for you.

 I think I originally found these through itunes, but I'm afraid I don't know if they're still there.

Those ones were amazing. I loved the way each one is themed, with the requisite soundtrack of their surroundings going on in the background.

The one where they talk about football for a few minutes, I'm guessing topically for the 2006 World Cup - is still excellent. "I like..... Clive".

Also, on a very current-at-the-time tip, the one where they lampoon Robbie Williams' half forgotten comeback rap single 'Rudebox'.

Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Entropy Balsmalch on January 04, 2016, 07:54:19 PM
The problem with getting advertising and sponsorship on podcasts is that you just don't get enough impacts.

Impacts are what advertisers buy - the number of people multiplied by the number of times they hear/see it.

These are often sold in terms of "CPT" or "Cost Per Thousand" impacts.

Comparing podcasting to radio, even if you've got a hugely popular pod, you are looking at £50/£100 per ad - any more and advertisers will question why they're paying a higher CPT than they could get elsewhere.

You could "enhance" the value by saying the presenter will read it and therefore it will feel like a personal recommendation - but you're probably only going to get £500 maybe.

The problem is, compared to radio or TV, people don't get repeat impacts. If you listen to an average amount of commercial radio, you will hear, on average, each ad around 3 to 4 times. If they're on for a month - you hear it 12 or so.

Across the coarse of the year - odd things happen to the figures, but you're looking at most people (and by this point the number of listeners (or reach) will have increased to - so you're looking at millions of impacts - rather than just a one off of about 50 thousand you'd get on even the most popular of pods.

It's why you hear Squarespace so often - cause they're paying a small amount of a limited number of impacts, but a maximum level of repetition.

I felt it got a bit too regimented and feature led.

I loved the ramshackle feel of the XFM shows and the early six music days when it was usually the clearly flighty and eccentric Jude.

Not that they weren't still great; well, apart from the last 12 where it seemed a bit forced).

I think it was more to do with them having much less time to commit to putting stuff together, and subsequently they tended to lean too much on listener contributions for the meat of the show. I also get the feeling Joe's heart wasn't really in it for that last run, you could tell his attention was elsewhere, for obvious reasons.

Quite possibly. I do think James held a much firmer rein on them than previous producers - but that could easily be because they needed it as the show went on, and Joe's enthusiasm seemingly waned.

I always feel there's something comfortingly timeless and unaging about Adam and Joe whenever they reunite on radio / in podcasts, but there's also something quite unsettling about listening to any of their Xfm or 6 Radio shows and realising how long ago it was when they mention the Lord of the Rings films as contemporary movies, or anything else that part of me thinks should still be in the present.

Cornish's style of namedropping coupled with his refusal to indulge Adam on any juicy tidbits, or to allow even the mildest irreverence about his showbiz pals really effed me off. Oh, and any casual mention of the cost of expensive gadgets you've, in this case a £500 iPhone 6, is a massive twat move - we know they're not cheap, and we know he could afford another one, so his story about dropping his phone in the toilet actually amounts to "I can afford nice things".

It was only recently I discovered that Lee is a massive fan of west coast 60s pop such as The Monkees, The Beach Boys and Love, and now writes articles on such bands for Record Collector and even started his own record label to reissue Mickey Dolenz's solo singles.

Ironic to think that Some of the Corpses would upload articles condemning Lee in the strongest possible terms around the time of the 11 O Clock show, while also writing detailed articles on the career of the Monkees. Really they had more in common with him than they suspected. I wonder if they'd get on better now.

Further reading (not much) on the subject reveals there is absolutely no proven correlation between the two.

So it's a bullshit fact about a bullshit fact.

I think the argument about spouting stuff which turns out not to be true is weakened by the fact I, nor others on here, are promoting a book which claims to be a guide to female biology.

The moon used to be a lot closer to the Earth than it currently is (for example ... quickly looking up Wikipedia ... 2.5 billion years ago it was at a distance of about 52 Earth-radii, and now it's about 60; at the time of its formation, it might have been about 4 Earth-radii away). Since gravity's strength is inversely proportional to the square of the distance, it would have been a lot stronger in the past.

I find this very interesting, but, as said already, the near-equality of the length of the lunar cycle and the average menstrual cycle could just be a coincidence. It's not something a careful author would confidently put in a book.

I quite liked the interview with her though. She seemed rather nice. I enjoyed her enthusiasm for the podcast's theme tune.

I saved up some of these as I had to spend 14-hours on the train over the last 2-days (work thing that was scheduled during bank holiday, nice one chaps). It's a glorious podcast, and I went back and listened to all the old ones again. He really has mastered the single interviewer podcast form in a comparatively short space of time. The difference between this and the WTF podcast is that the bits at the beginning and end with Buckles are sometimes the best thing about it, whereas with Maron you just want to get past all that nonsense at the start.

The jingles, the tone of the interviews that veer between the utterly silly and the very serious, and the way he doesn't try to ask obvious questions. It's brilliant, isn't it?
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: QRDL on June 01, 2016, 03:03:07 PM
Any hypothesis about the influence of moon's gravity on our watery bodies should be deemed implausible at the start.

Actually, such hypothesis deserves even less respect than astrology. When astrology was being developed, people had access to radically different crops each season and that could infuence the development of the foetus and maybe even it's future personality. Slightly. It's far fetched, but still more plausible than the moon menstruation thing.

It reminds me of an tumultuous conversation I had with a female friend of mine a couple of years ago. She wanted to convince me that if women were in charge of the development of science, our concept of time would likely be cyclical due to all the menstruating going on in the ivory towers. And no, she didn't mean the calendar, she meant the concept of time. I just hope one of them would come up with an idea of counting the cycles and invent natural numbers in the process.
The conservative in my brain always wakes up from his slumber when I'm reminded of the "mathematics as patriarchal construct" idea.

  • BUT THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT ALL OF THE ABOVE DOESN'T EVEN FUCKING MATTER, [Spoiler]BACAUSE THE MOON IS STILL THERE, WITH ALL OF IT'S MASS, EVEN DURING THE NEW MOON..[/Spoiler]

But the moon's orbit isn't perfectly circular (it's fairly elliptical), so it is somewhat nearer at some points of its orbit, so its gravitational force as felt on the Earth does vary cyclically. But it isn't in synchrony with the phases of the moon anyway. The combined gravity of the sun and moon do show a cyclical trend through the phases of the moon (neap and spring tides).

Some gravity effects of the moon are discussed here
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_effect
but I've no idea how accurate that is (the bit about plants is very peculiarly worded, and seems to be trying to suggest that an alignment of the moon and Saturn is meaningful, as well as mentioning signs of the Zodiac, and gravity having a preference for certain elements at certain phases, so I'm fairly confident that section is for the snip sooner or later).

It does say right at the start that there is no known mechanism to link menstruation and the moon. The bit "Proposed Explanations" seems well-informed, and neatly debunking.

TL;DR: Sara Pascoe is neither a biologist nor a physicist.

I dunno what you lot are on about with the fucking moon and all that, but Buckles' podcast is about the only one worth listening to out of the many available[nb]by celebs/comedians/media types[/nb].

I've listened to literally hundreds in my quest for office listening, and there are really very few out there that are worth going back to - nearly all of the American ones feel too scripted and rehearsed, and not in a good way (and fuck knows why Maron's is so highly thought of - it's like a VERY poor man's Larry Sanders), and most of the other British ones are mind numbingly dull.  I think Buckles has just got everything pretty much perfect - the length, the tone(s), the guests and how to tailor the show to their particular characters, the amount of time he allows for just himself, etc etc.

Also Iain Lee - I think he's just about managed to turn public opinion of himself around, at least with those that have bothered with him.  I never liked the guy either, but a couple of mates have been listening to his radio shows over the last few years, and one of those mates has also seen Lee (and various co-presenters) do a live podcast thing (Herrin and Collings style) a few times and Lee is, apparently, "a delight".  I've yet to give him a second chance, though, so take the preceding paragraph as you will.

Light on laughs but a very good episode if you're interested in Riley's time in The Fall. Also some insight into Mark and Lard's time as R1 Breakfast Show hosts that I've not heard before. Buxton has become a really great interviewer, that's for definite.

Another good one with Mark Riley, some good stories and reminiscences about his career.  Personally I used to love Mark and Lard on the breakfast show because I knew their sense of humour would fuck a lot of people off for as long as it lasted.  Funny how Moyles and Grimmy get a pass, dunno if a posse trumps a sidekick and lots of people clapping and whooping rather than just being funny is what Londoners want in the morning.

Also made me think that once in a while something good can come out of local commercial radio.  Mark and Lard, Frank Sidebottom, even Pete and Geoff and Spence McDonald all had their moments on Piccadilly/Key 103 and, I must admit I used to always tune in to Timmy on the Tranny - what ever happend to Chris Evans eh?

There's a lot of shite on the radio of course and when I moved away from Manchester one of the best things about it was never having to hear Mike Toolan again.

Who's going to be the next star off Clyde1?  Not fucking GBX, 'Knoxy' or that cunt who does the drive time show where pricks ring in screaming that they've seen a bloke changing his tyre on the mate and it's causing miles of standing traffic because Glasgwegians are rubbernecking cunts.

It would be less obnoxious if the confused chap really was constantly interrupting him. But he isn't. Iain leaves gigantic gaps in his sentence so the poor bugger keeps filling them.

Yep. That's exactly what I got from it.

The fact he says afterwards "One of those was a little too long..." whereas I was thinking "All of those were too long - and it went on too long too."

That, one would guess, is considered a highlight of his work. Says enough really.

That call doesn't feel cruel to me at all. Yes, Lee deliberately leaves gaps to allow the bloke to respond, but it strikes me as a bit of harmless fun. I didn't get the sense that he was cruelly laughing at this old gent, more that he'd struck upon a silly bit of business which he milked for as long as possible.

The fact that it goes on and on is the joke, surely? The idea that he and the caller could've continued in that repetitive vein all day is quite funny. As I say, I never got the impression that we're supposed to be laughing and sneering at the "mad old pensioner".

Of course! But it's not very funny when he's causing it to happen artificially, at the poor blighter's expense.

What would have actually been funny (because it is a funny idea) if it were real, if it were some incensed Middle Englander who kept interrupting him. But he wasn't interrupting him.

Yeah, you're right. Lee is manufacturing a ridiculous situation - it would be funnier if he had no control over it. However, I still don't think it's cruel. Contrived, yes, but not mean-spirited.

By the way, I'm not suggesting that it's an amazing piece of radio - it's not - but it's amusing for what it is.

But Sega only ever made a handful of Sonic the Hedgehog arcade games, and they're extremely rare. The story doesn't add up. MES is innocent.

Mega Drive cabs running Sonic 1 weren't uncommon.

Mega Drive cabs running Sonic 1 weren't uncommon.

Yes, Sega Mega Tech, which could hold up to 8 modified Mega Drive cartridges, and inserting coins bought play time rather than lives.
(http://www.system16.com/boards/megatechcarts.jpg)
and the successor Sega Mega Play, which could hold up to 4 modified Mega Drive cartridges, with the games modified so that inserting a coin got you extra lives or continues.
(http://www.system16.com/boards/megaplay.jpg)
Sonic and Sonic 2 were converted for both systems.

The cabinets had 2 monitors - the main one to play the game one, and a small one above it that listed what games you could select, and the game's instructions once you had selected one.

The Mega Play motherboard has a JAMMA standard edge connector, so it could be inserted into any generic JAMMA cabinet. In that case, you only had one monitor so you would only fit one cartridge, making it effectively a dedicated cabinet.

Quite a dour cast this time, with Riley sounding quite introverted and serious. It's actually quite nice to hear him like that because he is so happy-clappy on the radio.

Loved the story of him smacking out Smith, and then going onto a live chat show together the next morning.

I'm not a fan of The Fall - I don't dislike them, they're just not for me - but everything I've ever read about Smith makes him sound like a sociopath. Riley's story about him slapping them for dancing to The Clash is horrible. Watching the Boy Lard in that interview is fascinating - he's being civil to the interviewer[nb]Who looks like a cheesy throwback, but he's actually done his research and does a good, professional job of keeping things ticking along against the odds.[/nb], but you can tell that he really is seething towards Smith.

Yes, his behaviour towards his collaborators seems to frequently approximate to "cruel and unsual punishment".

I bought him a drink once, in Dublin, just before a gig, in a pub round the corner from the venue, where he was sitting on his own. He was very nice actually and he chatted with me and girlfriend for about fifteen minutes. He even came looking for me about half an hour later to buy me a drink back.

I don't doubt the veracity of the accounts of his ex-band members though.

The interview with Jonny Greenwood was definitely a bit stilted. A lot of it was down to strangely unnatural responses from Greenwood.

Something like:
AB: My son is really into Radiohead.
JG: [Evenly] Ok.
AB: Radiohead's performance was sublime, a thing of beauty.
JG: Right.

In contrast, Thom Yorke's interview with Marc Maron was actually pretty entertaining and very humble really. Yorke was full of praise for JG, and made what for me was a fascinating aside about JG's composing on a quarter-tone piano, and how it was like alchemy to TY.

Yeah, fair enough. And it was recorded out in the open, so the dynamic would be different there too. The dynamic was just odd in quite a lot of it, with AB waxing lyrical about various Radiohead-related things, and JG undemonstratively assenting.

JG did warm up in quite a few places though. It was interesting to hear about the Curb script he owns. The dynamic during the Stardust anecdote was warm too.

I'm a huge Radiohead fan and both Greenwood brothers have always been a bit disappointing when placed under Adam's spotlight imo. I saw him interview Colin Greenwood (Radiohead bassist and Jonny's brother) live at a Bug show and at one point he told a funny told story about Paranoid Android getting stuck in his head when he's sick and Colin clearly had no idea what he meant by it.

Likewise this moment in a 6music interview with both Greenwoods, when Adam does a fabulous impression of one of Thom Yorke's side project songs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpVfF4U75B8) (he even gets the key right!), and they're just nonplussed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VtqrzwCOmU&feature=youtu.be&t=1480

It's not really that bad, is it? Adam must've known that the notoriously grumpy Weller wouldn't laugh, hence why he went ahead with it. Weller's humourless reaction is the punchline to a typical bit of childish Buckles nonsense.

I've never heard him speaking "out of character" before.

I'd love to hear Adam interviewing Danny Baker on one of these shows. Baker tends to trot out the same well-worn anecdotes when interviewed - he's got a million of 'em - but I think Adam would manage to steer him off auto-pilot and into some interesting areas.

Agree 100%.  I normally find Baker a much better interviewer than interviewee, but I've been impressed with Buxton's skills as an interviewer - particularly with the Marc Riley one, where Riley seemed initially a bit reticent but relaxed and opened up very quickly.  Its good to hear a more thoughtful side to Buxton via these podcasts and that approach definitely seemed to work. 

If Baker's new volume of memoirs is out soon, I guess he would be thinking about a bit of promo.

Would love to hear Limmy on this as well.

These seem to go up without any fanfare at all. I follow Adam on Twitter and still don't realise when he's done a new one. But there was a new one with Sally Wainwright put out last Thursday. It's not very funny but it's interesting. I like her; I think she's very good.

It works on my Android phone. Are you able to uninstall, or suitable, Google Reader? Your problem there is you have xml files associated to Reader so they will automatically open it. Get rid of it and you should be able to open the rss feed in your browser. Failing that, just install a podcast client, plug that url into it and you can then download the mp3s.

This was the only one I didn't finish. It was just too dry, it's not what I listen for. Sally Wainwright seems very nice and smart, but I'm after Buxton-driven banter mainly.

(actually I found the Greenwood one a little boring too for similar reasons)
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast

I really like that he's interviewing non-comedians too and that you don't know what tone you're going to get with each one. He really is a remarkably skilled and natural interviewer. The Greenwood one certainly suffered from its subject's shyness though, particularly the first part.

As non capisco - and Buckles - said, Happy Valley is quite subversive in the way it initially presents itself as just another cosy  northern police procedural, before hitting you with the full force of its actual intentions.

It's an intelligently written and faultlessly acted drama about grief, abuse, addiction and family dysfunction. But, you know, with funny bits.

Incidentally, I cringed a bit for Buckles when he asked Wainwright what she'd directed in the past. She directed most of Happy Valley! He's obviously a fan - and he always does his research - so he should've known that.

Shame these have become so infrequent as they are absolutely my favourite podcast about right now.

In case anyone missed it, or assumed he'd knocked it on the head, a new episode with Bill Hader dropped towards the end of last week.

I didn't/don't have a clue who he is, but he had some interesting things to say about working on SNL and an insane story about working with Arnold Schwarzenegger on the set of some movie.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: non capisco on August 14, 2016, 09:44:57 PM
Also nice to hear the interview was requested by Hader after Edgar Wright turned him on to the podcast. Buxton's so bloody good at these and it's warming to find out people are picking up on it.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Sin Agog on August 14, 2016, 10:32:08 PM
Best thing about these is that Dr. Buckles at no point feels compelled to trample on the flow of the conversation by cramming in a "Who are your guys?" and a "If you could date a giant penis or a penis with a head...?". Dude knows how to let a talk blossom, whatever mood it happens to naturally take.  Also, he's, like, really, really nice and sensitive in the good way.  It's amazing he gelled so well with the funny but passive-aggressive as an...angry tree Joe Cornish so well.  I especially like how he says that he loves me at the end of each podcast.  I'm glad someone does.

Dug the Steel Pulse rec at the end of the Hader one. Totally real, unpretentious moment- just reccing a dude some UK reggae you've recently gotten into.  It's the kinda thing that distinguishes podcasts from any other medium.

Thought the Bill Hader one was great, and liked the Sally Wainwright one- yes, it was a bit stilted and dry, but most in-depth conversations with people who've never spoke before are.

But has anyone noticed that he always ends the interview part with something funny he says? Not a complaint, I'm not saying he's not funny because he is, but when it's with people who are paid to be funny, it really stands out.

Listening to a load of US comedy podcasts, there does seem to be a bunch of UK comedies that all of them like. I imagine it's all stuff that's available on Netflix or something. Garth Marenghi, Alan Partridge, Father Ted, Spaced, Peep Show and The Day Today all get mentions, as well as Benny Hill and Monty Python.

The mid-naughties slew of movies from the Stiller/Ferrell axis (Dodgeball, Old School etc) all seemed to have notable gags that felt cribbed from Partridge-style things, to the extent that I wondered who the secret Brit was working for them. Some gags went beyond coincidence. The Frankie Goes To Hollywood reveal in Zoolander felt too deep a cut for an American to come up with (the old pic had a proper Scouser perm and Tache).

I don't think it has anything to do with Netflix. I think that these people are just real comedy fans who seek out the unusual stuff, like English people search out Xavier: Renegade Angel or Better Off Ted, despite them not having any real presence in the UK

Same here, my wife was extremely well versed with British comedy but had not experienced Vic and Bob, Father Ted, or Big Train, which very quickly became firm favourites. It does make you realise how incredibly good we are at comedy in this country, and I think becomes a feature of the early stage of relationships, bonding over shows like this.

Gotta admit this is what I like about it. I've enjoyed the Theroux, Joe and Garth Jennings ones the best because I like to hear witty people just chewing the fat. I could listen to Adam talk bollocks with Louis Theroux all night. I love how you can tell they've been mates for ages.

Has there ever been an occasion where Adam, Joe and Louis have all been together at once, on the radio show perhaps? If not he really needs to make that happen.

Enough with the interview-y podcasts now, surely?

With the best will in the world, it's just two mates (in the case of Louis Theroux) talking about when they like to go to bed at a party, and remembering mutual friends from their past.

Yes, but my* friends are far less witty and likeable.

Did anyone feel genuinely really uncomfortable with the idea of Adam presenting Michael Palin with a book about his dead dad? The whole idea of a fan kind of attacking and cornering a really famous person with that sort of story and gift came to mind and I couldn't shake it. It was all sorts of odd and awkward.

But then I listened again (NOT STONED) and it wasn't nearly as awkward at all. So probably just paranoia/intense stoned brain making me over analyse it all, hopefully.[nb]FWIW I've decided to stop smoking weed since this incident[/nb]

Not watched Chewing Gum, and thought Michaela might end up a bit annoying but she won me round in the end. Her frankness was great.

But wasn't it Larry Clark that directed Kids?! Fact-checking Santa should have made an appearance.

An overexposure to online feminism and all that jazz meant I couldn't ignore Buxton's supposition that the foul-mouthed producer must been either drunk or trying to be funny a straight-up perv.

Well, I took the comment as evidence of sleaze bag behaviour that women have to put up with in various industries all the time - and IIRC the anecdote was relayed in the context of awareness of feminism. But it's interesting Adam's first instinct was to ask if he was really drunk or trying to be funny. That's not to say he was excusing him, because he wasn't, but to focus on something that could be seen as an excuse - to these delicate ears it had the faintest whiff of mansplaining or whatever other interminable phrase you could use.

It's only a minor point. I had a similar reaction when he talked about putting makeup on in public. It reveals a pleasing fuddiduddiness in my eyes.

Probably just me though .

I won't stand for these slights on Buckles. He hasn't sounded anti-PC, the make-up thing was fine, and his question about the producer lunatic was just being a nice person having difficulty understanding someone being a straight-up cunt.  Sharing his Dad's book was sweet, and the responses at the end of the podcast were fair enough.

I see the point about the one-sided and over-long response to a comment on his blog about alcohol and his conversation with Louis, but I found it somewhat interesting. More Or Less on BBC Radio 4 had a look at the justification for the latest UK guidelines, and found a few problems. One problem is that the levels of drinking associated with various maladies in studies are almost certainly not what people are actually drinking, as these studies are based on self-reporting and people typically under-report how much they drink. Another problem with the new guidelines is that they deny there are any positive outcomes to moderate drinking, but there is a clear, empirically demonstrated benefit to very low levels of drinking, about one unit a day. At that level (one mouthful of wine, really), you have a slightly lower chance of dying prematurely than someone who doesn't drink at all, even after correcting for "sick quitters".

There are other issues, but I can't remember them. The programme's here anyway, for anyone who's interested:

It was a while ago (one of the first Louis ones?) but AB began a section by bemoaning some woman / people who put their make-up on in public places (like the London Underground or wherever). Ostensibly because it removed "the mystery" from the process.

To my straight-white ears it sounded fine at the time, except for maybe thinking he might get pulled up on it, which he did and he addressed it and set his stall out in a bit more detail in the next podcast iirc.

i know he’s famously susceptible to criticism so I hope he doesn’t let people getting on their high-horse about daft shit lead to him being more guarded, especially in his more informal chats with Louis/Jennings/Joe. In the podcast itself they came to the conclusion that it was none of his business if and why someone might put on their make-up on the train (“it’s not for you”) and anyway, it was just an observation on an everyday occurrence to get the conversation started… and God-forbid anyone consider the government recommendations on weekly units unrealistic. That guy didn’t need any response from Adam, other than “oh puh-leeese"

Really enjoyed the latest one with Michaela Coel. I was going to skip it because I haven’t seen Chewing Gum, but after five minutes I was completely won over. I think it’s especially interesting that she came to TV from a completely different background, with no real interest in the sort of comedy/ pop culture that comedy so often cannibalises. At first I rolled my eyes at the idea of someone having no idea about Harry Enfield or Eyes Wide Shut, but I bet it actually results in a more honest and original programme.

I enjoyed the Michaela Coel one, don't know who she is though. Is Chewing Gum any good? Enjoyed her talking about pissing herself on a Hampstead person's path, finding and losing God, and visiting sex clubs.

This post has been amended after some responses from a couple of people expressing concern that we’re essentially expecting artists to provide us with free content for our show. As I explained to those people, the idea was simply to get old listeners involved in this live event in some way that wouldn’t be too great a drain on their time and to cast the net wide in the process, rather than simply approaching artists I have worked with in the past. It was always the plan to remunerate anyone whose work actually ended up being used but I didn’t want to flag that to begin with as I thought it would be better if people got involved for the fun of it rather than for a pay cheque. I appreciate that may have been naive.

I think my opinion of DQs has been tarnished by those tossers you see in Magaluf who walk around going 'Eh girrrrrllllssssssszzz' in a Scouse accent before singing 'I am what I am' (which they're clearly not).

My mate (the one who reckons the moon landings are a hoax) says ALL men 'turn fruity' at 50 citing John Travolta as an example.  i say JT's ALWAYS been on the fruity end of the spectrum but seeing as I'm under 5 years from F-Day now may be a good time to get in touch with my feminine side and revisit my attitude towards drag.

I doubt the advert was filmed last week either. Isn't doing it in character a bit worse, if anything? If people like that character, and it's not just made up for the advert. I'd rather see David Mitchell and Robert Webb in an ad for Baileys than Mark & Jez in character flogging the stuff.

it's his character, he can do what he likes. I agree with him that if it was as himself, it could get cringeworthy. If anything it's funny - Toast is no role model for anything, he's deliberately rephrensible.

Nothing wrong with Berry doing ads and voiceovers, but it is a bit shit to take his character (he wanked on about being a perfectionist when it came to Toast) and stick him in a campaign that's so completely lame and unfunny. He's got to wince a bit every time he sees it.

But I like the guy a lot, and a typically entertaining interview.

Yes, it was evident and mentioned at the time.

I guess you were reminded of it because of the Eggcorns?

To be fair, how many weekly three-hour DJs have so much of their "own" content?
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: veletision on December 29, 2016, 11:00:08 PM
Absolutely. Every weekly show or daily show can only do so much before getting repetitive or relying on outside sources for content. I don't hold it against them.

The fan sung jingle followed by the eggcorns was jarring.

The shows always relied on getting submissions on a set topic and working off that. Guess it reaches a tipping point as the volume of correspondence increases week by week.

As much as I loved the regular shows on xfm and 6music, I'm kind of happier that it's now a once a year thing. This year's mostly gave me great comfort.

Adam's got form for haranguing people in public though. From his POV (obvs) I thought he was in the right in this case - or maybe it's just that my numerous dealings with Euston station and its staff make me sympathise with him.

Joe definitely came off as a wanker for his phone behaviour. But at least he was honest about it.

Let he that has never told a call centre guy on the phone to fuck off cast the first stone.

I don’t think that either were proud of their altercations, it was presented in a confessional manner I think?

It wasn’t prime A&J, but it was great to have them back together again.  It’s a shame that the gifts  were a bit haphazard/shit, as it’s always been a highlight for me.  Next year lads, remember to buy nice gifts, and remember to get drunk ‘on air’.  Prep a few bits and bobs, and remember to talk about something other than Joe’s new celebrity lifestyle.  THANKYOUILOVEYOUBYYYEEEEEEE

Really? He's often been candid about his pent-up rage that occasionally explodes into a public altercation. Rudeness and discourtesy certainly seem like enormous triggers for him to spiral off on one. I suffer the same thing and have shamed myself several times as a result. Situations where someone's annoyed you and you end up in the wrong yourself due to your overreaction.

Both Adam and Joe expressed regret and embarrassment over their behaviour though, which probably shows them to be far nicer than is the norm.

I think you've completely misunderstood the point of telling those stories. They were supposed to be examples of flying off the handle and then feeling terrible about it afterwards, not celebrations of times they were rude to customer service personnel.

And okay, we've only got Adam's word for it, but the TFL guy sounded like an utter arsehole. I loathe aggressive, officious bullies like that and would probably react the same way, to be honest.

Now I think of it, there was a time Adam used to get really angry about things his missus had said or done on the show, to the point people were speculating on the state of his marriage, and it clearly wasn't all put on. I guess he does have some issues.

Coogan comes across well in that podcast, but I found it quite disappointing overall. If you've read his autobiography or any of his interviews from the last five years or so, then it's all very familiar.

A pleasant listen, as usual, but Coogan - like most in-demand interviewees - has stock answers for practically every line of enquiry.

I just wanted this to go on for another hour. Buckles is really familiar with all the different aspects of Coogan's career, and drills into some nice Patridge stuff, but there is so much more to ask him about. Pre-Spitting Image stuff in particular, but also the period in the early 90s when he was doing Paul Calf as his main 'character'.

I basically just want to sit with chin on my hands listening to them doing chat.

Umm A Cock and Bull Story is not the first time Coogan and Brydon acted together. Cruise of the Gods is the first thing that comes to mind, and he's in IAP series 2 at Lynn's baptism. There's also the 'A Small Summer Party' special of Marion & Geoff, where Coogan plays Geoff, although I don't remember if he actually shares a scene with Brydon. IMDB also tells me that Brydon was in 24 Hour Party People, but again I'm not sure if they share screentime.

Overall a pitiful effort from both Coogan and Buxton and I hope to hear a fulsome apology from Adam at the end of the next podcast.

They do. Brydon plays a journalist who asks Coogan/Tony Wilson leading questions about Joy Division's name while Ian Curtis has a seizure in the dressing room. Then at the penultimate scene outside the Hacienda he asks questions about Tony Wilson's apparent failure in life, only to be left outside in the rain as Wilson swans inside with his girlfriend. In fact I think Brydon only has screentime with Coogan in 24HPP.

A pleasant listen, as usual, but Coogan - like most in-demand interviewees - has stock answers for practically every line of enquiry.

I was thinking that.  There has to be a time coming soon where podcasting is going to eat itself.  You come on mine, I'll come on yours, we'll both get Jimmy Carr and hey presto you can click on the donate button.

Buckles (for instance) must have been interviewd enough times to know there are questions he gets asked all the time so perhaps he could try not asking a popular subject about 'How he got started'

I listened to the ComComPod with Russel Brand and 1) He was clinking and clanking cups throughout - I'd ban that* and 2) He never ONCE asked him about what Katy Perry was like in the sack.**

* - The Katy Wix episode was unlistenable to because she was eating fucking carrots all the way through it like that woman on the Slimfast radio ads 'Mmm, mmm, mummmmm'

I will offer my services to all podcasters to tell their hot shot guests to knock it off for one fucking hour.

** - I would have.

The problem with Coogan is that Partridge is still the most interesting thing about him, but is clearly (and understandably) the thing he's least interested in talking about. To the extent that not only have I heard his answers to most of the questions before, but I've heard all his rebuttals to questions that haven't even been asked. I think this is the third interview (one of the others was Herring, forget the third) where Coogan has given the same response regarding the overlap between him and Partridge, even though the question wasn't really asked.

That said, he was in unusually relaxed form, nowhere near as spiky as he often seems, and I was both surprised and a little disappointed when it ended so suddenly.

I love Adam and everything but a lot of these just aren't worth listening to. He's too polite to probe, so it comes down to the interviewee to make the actually conversations interesting. The Matt Berry episode in particular was annoying because he seemed so guarded, and also glib about everything he'd done. Kathy Burke was a missed opportunity. The only one I really enjoyed was Louis Theroux, but largely thats because he's so disarmingly affable in contrast to his onscreen persona.

Yeah the best Bucko podcasts are the ones where he just shoots the shit with his showbiz mates, like Joe Cornish, Louis Theroux and Garth Jennings. I find it quite interesting hearing slebs talking about everyday stuff unrelated to their day jobs, like Louis on being told off by his dad (who it goes unremarked is a world famous writer). Think this is an avenue not exploited enough in most interviews; he should pursue it with all his guests.

Isn't the problem (such as it is) just that you FUCKING NERDS know too much about some of these interviewees?  An hour with someone like Coogan is only going to get you a variation on an hour with Coogan; he's not going to break into a falsetto singalong of Yes Sir, I Can Boogie because Adam knows he's only got an hour and Coogan is speaking guardedly to an interviewer rather than a chum.

As hours with Coogan go, I thought it was a good one and worthwhile in being an enjoyable chat. He reflected Buxton's affability and didn't seem as pissy as he got in recent Herring and Iannucci appearances. I like how Buckles' interviews vary so much, between ones like this, and interesting people I've never heard of, and giggles with his mates.

They do. Brydon plays a journalist who asks Coogan/Tony Wilson leading questions about Joy Division's name while Ian Curtis has a seizure in the dressing room. Then at the penultimate scene outside the Hacienda he asks questions about Tony Wilson's apparent failure in life, only to be left outside in the rain as Wilson swans inside with his girlfriend. In fact I think Brydon only has screentime with Coogan in 24HPP.

I think the opposite is true, sort of. His affable nature means you are more likely to get to the real person behind the celebrity rather than the stock answers. Someone like Coogan is never likely to drop the facade but it works with other interviewees.

If you are listening to Buckles for a probing interview then you are going to the wrong place

I have been relistening to these and really enjoyed them a lot. Surprisingly, the Marc Riley one is really good. Another that I wanted to continue for another hour. Now listening to the Jon Ronson one and is is also fantastic.

In the Ayoade cast they discuss Woody Allen at length (as they do in the Ronson one) and I found it quite unsettling. I don't quite know how to react to the Woody Allen issue (Ronson actually articulates this crisis extremely well as two moral positions colliding) but I found their discussion quite status based - I think Ayoade should simply admit that he likes his films thanks to the benefits of cognitive dissonance.

Yes, and listening to this today reminded me to start using them again.  As he says in the interview they're very good as jumping off points to send you in directions you wouldn't have otherwise gone in, rather than being instructions that you should follow to the letter.  The ones like 'Go against your instincts' or 'What wouldn't you do?' are good for inspiring you to genuinely experiment and try new things.

Looks like Louis Theroux actually managed to convince Marc Maron to do Adam's pod (Louis said that Adam desperately wanted to have him on during his Wtf ep from a few weeks back).  It's weird seeing things calcify from a casual line about wanting to interview Marc on one of Adam's RHLSTP appearances, to Maron saying, 'Yeah, I know him' whenever a British comedian referenced Buxton, to it finally actually happening.  Now to listen.

Gottdammmit.  First twenty minutes are already filled up with turntable buzz talk.  Easily the nadir of WTF intro topics...now infecting Adam's perfectly fine pod.  Sure it'll get better soon, though.

Sometimes in these Adam jumps on a funny phrase and does it in a slightly silly voice and the other guest has no idea what happened and ignores it. Particularly American guests, even comedians. It happens with a phrase involving a basket in the Maron one, I think, can't remember now. I find it depressing every time.

Interesting that Buxton tactfully gets Maron to admit he never does any research for his podcasts.  I've sat through a fair few of them now, all musical guests of whom Maron knows 2 or 3 of their albums which he played while in college.  Otherwise his knowledge of their career output falls way short of what you would expect from an interviewer.  Gets pretty yawnsome each time he manages to get a potentially interesting interviewee.  My worst nightmare would be to not have the option to skip through his skull-scrapingly dull sponsorship messages or worse yet, the bit where he talks about his own life before the guest appears.  Jesus wept.

Maron in an outro: "Wow... he's a little prickly, that Todd Rundgren, but I enjoyed talking to him."  He'd have been a little less prickly if you'd known more about him and shut your mouth for more than 10 seconds at a time.

Not according to Adam Buxton's blog, at least not yet.

I understand why people don't like Marc Maron, but I still think he does some good interviews. On balance I think he is a good thing. And you people who don't like him have no idea how annoyed it is possible to get with him after listening to what in my case is probably over 700 episodes (I have not listened to all of the early ones, but I have listened to some of them and I think all of them after about episode 100.)

I agree that it was interesting to hear the difference in his tone of voice when he is being interviewed. Content wise not much new (which isn't surprising, see previous paragraph.)

He has actually talked about attitude to research several times on WTF, it is a bit more complex than "never doing any research".

Yeurk, I can't stand Maron.  I've tried, REALLY hard, for years to get into WTF, right back when it was constantly singled out as being THE best, if not ONLY podcast worth listening to, but I've never connected with him at all.  I honestly don't get why people rate him, and particularly the podcast, so highly.  Likewise his standup - tried several times, but never mustered more than the occasional smile.

I will still listen, though, for Buckles alone.

Post by: Sin Agog on May 03, 2017, 03:39:46 PM
I like how he can really get into the emotional nitty-gritty with some guests, especially women.  Those interviews tend to be his best.  Sure, a lot of the things said are regurgitated shrink shite, but there's still a bit more to hang onto than silly middle-class English bloke podcasters who get all frazzled when things get a little heavy (not that there's not a place for that).  The recent Anne Hathaway interview was a good example, but I think there are a bunch more in a similar vein with peoples like Laura Dern, Patricia Arquette and the like.  Plus, and I think Buxton mentioned this on one of his podcasts, a lot of WTF interviews really feel like they have the arc of a great movie: the pressure slowly builds up, with a couple of quippy release valves, before you finally get to breathe again come the end.  Just feels more substantial than a lot of other interviews.  Of course there is a fair bit of middling 'Who are your guys?' filler to wade through as well.  And I dunno if people still use the word 'rockist' anymore, but it pretty much describes Maron in one word.  I bet he has an account on the Steve Hoffman forums.

Maron in an outro: "Wow... he's a little prickly, that Todd Rundgren, but I enjoyed talking to him."  He'd have been a little less prickly if you'd known more about him and shut your mouth for more than 10 seconds at a time.

Yeah, that's why I just can't get into Maron or his podcasts. He never fucking shuts up about himself

I think Curtis makes a really good point about people wanting to restore "magic" to the world as a response to everything becoming more greyly practical and utilitarian. I think that's partly the reason why threads about weird shit, unexplained phenomena etc are so popular, beneath our surface scepticism part of us wants to believe there could be something more to the world than just tedious practicalities of day-to-day living.

Adam Curtis is younger than I expected him to be.
Nick Kroll was nice.

Both lovely podcasts.

There is a wobble of concern for young Mr Buxton though. You alright Adam? There seems to be some increased lingering on death there.

A fascinating and absorbing listen (and also not without its humorous moments. I laughed when Curtis responded to Buckles saying 'I'm Not The Man I Used To Be' by Fine Young Cannibals makes him cry with "You like that, do you?!")

Haven't seen Bitter Lake or Hypernormalisation yet, will amend that forthwith.

They are both on iPlayer at the moment

The Adam Curtis one is the best by far - fascinating bloke.  I think he's almost more interesting when interviewed than when making documentaries.  Sign of a good interview when I had a load of points where I wanted to ask him to elaborate on a point or elucidate on something more.

Really enjoyed the Adam Curtis one too. Love that Buckles doesn't feel the need to cram jokes in to make it a 'comedy' podcast and lets the conversations flow.

Also think it's a sign of a quality product when you don't agree with all the points made but you respect the way they were made. Need more of that sort of output these days.

Post by: McFlymo on May 23, 2017, 05:19:00 PM
Definitely was very pleased and surprised by Buckles fearlessly challenging Curtis. That's why we love you Buckles! Stick it to the man, man!

Curtis is a very interesting bloke, but he came across a bit sanctimonious for me, at times. His describing Burial's music as basically noise that has emotion instilled in it, (and his other descriptions of music) were a bit cringey. Noise imbued with emotion - sort of like, all music, ever, really, no?

Still though, I agree that it's good to have your opinions challenged and hear how someone defends their perspective on things.
It was a bit annoying when Curtis kept saying that the liberals have failed, yet the right have been able to change the world, dramatically. Yes they have, but that's also because they have all the power of massive media behind them, the Sun, Daily Mail, Sky News... Everything else... Sure, the BBC has to seem to be "impartial" but all these networks still give time (and therefore power) to the most ridiculous right wing ideas about society: Islam = terrorism. Poor = scroungers. Disabled = useless. NHS = done. Is Climate Change even a thing? ... It isn't necessarily what side you take on these issues, it's the fact these issues are even being discussed as though we should take them seriously. We shouldn't. They're distractions. Leave the data to the scientists and the rest of us need to stop being so fucking inhumane!

Sorry for that rant there.

I thought it was quite a revealing moment when Curtis mentioned liking The Cure, there was a very brief moment of silence (Buckles must have made a face) then Curtis sounded so wounded and defensive and said "oh come on, you know...". It seemed to reveal that Curtis is quite a sensitive bloke and is very weary about letting his guard down. I love little moments like that.

I did like the idea of humans pursuing more strange things in this modern age, because there is no "magic" in our general perception of things. I'm definitely all for that.
So we should all definitely keep taking lots and lots of magic mushrooms and watch freaky, tripped out documentaries.

For what it's worth:

I also just really can't get on board with Marc Maron.
Ugh.

I just find him superficial and kind of a bullshitter. He seemed impatient with Buckles, sometimes his answers seemed like "I'll just say this, it'll be quicker", which is sort of the total opposite of what I want from an interview. I've tried with a few of his WTF episodes too. UGH... I just. Don't. Like. Him.

I feel bad for saying it, but he annoys the fuck out of me.

Whereas, someone slightly similar, maybe would be Bill Burr, who is quite an intense guy and talks about himself a lot, but I could happily listen to him riff away about any old shit for hours and hours.

Wasn't too fussed on Nick Kroll. But I haven't seen any of his work really. Some of the descriptions of his "pranks" ( "Too much tuna" for example) I was sort of gutted at how utterly shit they sounded, but maybe it's all in the delivery and I need to withhold judgement.

I liked the Bridget Christie one, although she seemed quite guarded and it was a little strained. So great bits though. I really love her "Stand Up For Her" on Netflix.

I have a question!

In the Julian Barratt & Gareth Jennings one...

Did anyone else feel quite awkward when Buckles sort of "cornered" Barratt on getting kicked out of the premier? It was like he was putting him on the spot, over it, a bit.
Not sure how to take that.

I also felt the same, when Buckles gave Michael Palin a book, telling him about his dad dying. It seemed a bit inappropriate.
At the same time, I genuinely love Buckles, so I never want him to change!! But I do wonder, when he does these things, is he consciously trying to create something awkward / emotionally charged. Maybe he reasons that it'll be funnier if he creates these potentially awkward situations. Just going by how firm and assertive he was with Curtis, I certainly don't think of Buckles as someone who... mmhmmmhmm... buckles easily, under pressure. oh HO HO hhhhAAAA HHAAAA HA AHAAAA (please kill me).

I think that is a reasonable description as Burial eschews traditional instruments, or even non-traditional ones like standard synth sounds. He also often avoids tunes to create more atmospheric moods. I know he isn't alone in this but it is a good description of what he does

Musically speaking, Curtis did once hip quite a few people to the Russian illegal music scene of the '80s on his bbc blog*, so he knows his shit...at least when it comes to the Russians.  Yanka Dyagileva would have been a good choice for songs that make you cry (one of the darkest stories in rock music), and Egor Letov was an insanely prolific proponent of fuzzed-out warped psychedelic scuzz.  Egor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nd6U26XSdG0  Yanka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7VY-PIVoOg


*for me easily the most interesting thing he's ever done.  Tackling odd, not always overtly-political subjects and punctuating them with all manner of crazy clips from the BBC archives.


I feel like maybe the mild conservative instincts imparted by Adam's dad may have kicked in a bit on that episode. Which is cool, made for a much less anodyne chat than you might have seen in other hands.  Also liked Curtis' ep of Brand's Under the Skin, where R.B. proceeded to gently take the piss out of Curtis for an hour or so.  Guess he has one of those personalities.

thats kind of the funny thing about 'too much tuna'. as a viewer its a pretty shit joke but the repetition is what makes it funny and the fact that you know its coming pretty soon. Like the look on the characters faces that say 'we are about to wind up this guy so good...'

Let me know if you need any album recs for Yanka or Egor*.  It's sad how using a different alphabet can make willing listeners feel like they have to take a six-year course just to google search an album.  Renders some amazing music just out of reach to potential western listeners.

Here's the Curtis blog in question to stop this post being a total non-sequitur: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/adamcurtis/entries/20c22534-f722-3d7a-b7ba-0506fcc00063

The best thing on the Edgar Wright one was the new sponsor advert that Adam sings in his 'robot' guise. Not to say that the interview wasn't entertaining but that robot jingle slayed me.

I get the sense Adam is still quite cut up about Wright stealing Joe away to write with the Hollywood bigwigs. Adam had passive-aggressively made this clear with his jokey remarks and yet still Wright persists with a story about Joe being annoyed at how he kept touching Spielberg's arm. I felt for yer Buckles then. There was something of a Bullseye 'let's see what you could have won' element to the whole thing. I personally would take one episode of Buxton talking to Zadie Smith over a thousand 'Attack The Block's but I sense he doesn't 100% feel the same.

Never understood the love for Attack the Block. It's technically accomplished but left me cold. And when reviewers starting raving and comparing it to John Carpenter I spat out my tea and shook my jowela in disbelief.

Fuck em all, Buckles. I too would take happily two hours of your podding over all that Block Attacking.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: big egg on May 31, 2017, 12:04:26 PM
I didn't like the bits where Edgar Wright interrupted to explain things for American listeners. Completely unnecessary.

And I agree that Attack the Block is really not a very good film. It might be a bit easier to look at the Buckles/Cornball divide more even-handedly if he'd made a really sharp, interesting film.

Plus, I didn't know that A&J had planned to write films together, which lended an extra poignancy to the slightly awkward "he cheated on me!" banter. I just bloody love Buckles so it's difficult not to take sides when his output is so much truer to what I think most people loved about the double act.

ATB was fine, and obviously successful enough to beat a path to greater things, but it was just a fun silly throwaway film.  The sort of thing that would have gone straight to video, in another era.  There is a lack of original films being made though, especially British films that aren’t remakes or pandering to Americans with some Harry Potter bollocks.  And the South London ‘urban yoof’ demographic still doesn’t have a lot of films aimed at them.  Need another posh white middle aged man to write films about them 
The Tintin film was ok.

Joe’s director ambitions marred the A&J show of old tbh, his occasionally amusing toy parody films became great tedious exercises in bedroom filmmaking, with 20 minute versions of boring Hollywood films lovingly recreated with a couple of teddy puns to keep us awake.

The BBC6 radio show was the best thing either of them ever did.

The actual interviews was alright but the thirty minute ski lodge advert / travelogue at the start was the equivalent of someone not realising their holiday pics aren't that interesting to people who aren't in them. The fact it was a shill in return for a free holiday didn't make it any more endearing.

It's not an intrinsically bad idea, though even if it is, I'd still expect it to be funny and listenable.

That said, I'm 20 minutes into this and it's not sounding like he's been able to wring much humour / interest from this.

I can't remember what it was, but I had a weird hankering to check out Travis again, recently. It may have been that song they did called "Sing"... whenever someone talks to me about singing and says the word "sing" at any point, my brain leaps into that Travis song.

It's a fair enough song, I suppose. Throwaway pop shite. Is it any better or any worse than the likes of Kings of Leon or The Killers etc? I'm not really sure.

I listened to a couple more songs from one of Travis' albums and was somewhat satisfied to conclude, they were a pile of balls.

No. Because that is literally the birth point of the non ironic soppy John Lewis cover version. You can trace it from that, through to the Live Lounge insisting on everyone doing a cover and then forward to the hugely successful Live Lounge album which then triggered a whole host of breathy teens with guitars.

Playing a pop song on an acoustic guitar doesn't make it better or more meaningful. Britney wipes the floor with Travis. Their first album had 5 or 6 good songs though before they became fucking boring. Every 90s band had a few ballads, but they were the first ones I can think of to pretty much do an album full of them. They went from being a fun indie band to inspiring Keane, Coldplay, every other cunt. I've gone off-topic, sorry.

No. Because that is literally the birth point of the non ironic soppy John Lewis cover version. You can trace it from that, through to the Live Lounge insisting on everyone doing a cover and then forward to the hugely successful Live Lounge album which then triggered a whole host of breathy teens with guitars.

Agreed. It was bad enough when the indie covers of pop songs were ironic, and now it's sincere, which is even worse.

I could happily listen to Adam and Louis nattering for hours. They've got such a lovely, warm rapport.

Also, I love how Adam's podcasts with Louis bring out the latter's sillier side. The incongruity of listening to this ostensibly serious journalist, whose impassive documentary persona has been hardwired into our consciousness over the last 20 years, doing a terrible Herzog impression or singing along to Yes Sir, I Can Boogie in a ridiculous falsetto is wonderful.

Most of the questions are listener submissions. One from R. Herring is "Where do you get your crazy ideas?" SP replies, "Well, we lift up our arms and squirt sun cream onto our ham hands..."

I think this episode perfectly encapsulates how a live audience affects the dynamic of the interview. When Adam is doing his regular interviews there's a lot more scope to discuss things without having to look for an instant response. This is where his podcast is a better listen than Richard Herring's usually. You get more than the usual questions about their careers etc and the interview can go in more interesting directions without being mindful of boring the group of people watching you.

Herring gets a bad rep these days because of the inane emergency questions etc. I thought Buxton was much weaker in this setting though

Looking forward to listening to this. My gf recently started listening to the podcast with no experience of Buxton before and has promptly listened to them all. She adores it and thinks everyone should have a friend like him, and it seriously warms my heart.

I really warmed to her here. She's not been that conspicuous since the 90s, when I used to find her sneery and felt she was trying a bit too hard to be cool. Either she's changed massively, or much more likely, I'm far less snobby.

Adam Buxton couldn't strike up any sort of rapport with Bill Burr. It sounded like he didn't want to even do it before it started. Reminded me a bit of the Bill Burr interview on the Comedian's Comedian podcast although I thought Goldsmith was much better at challenging him.

His deflating chat at the end about how he didn't feel entirely uncomfortable with him seemed oddly unnecessary. I thought it was nice of Burr to give up his time at short notice, given he probably hasn't heard of Buxton, and for the most part I thought it was a very good interview, particularly the bit about how easily fans can turn against you. He definitely seems happier interviewing the likes of Mae Martin - the sort of guest most of his fans want to hear too, I guess, but who I end up finding annoying.

I'm a few weeks behind on Burr's podcast - did he mention the Adam Buxton one at all?

He did seem incredibly coy and soft-spoken when he met him at the start, like the weediest version of himself. It is that ingratiating side of his personality that he probably hates but i find endearing.

The interview was fine though, just a normal interview rather than the warm cuddly ones Buxton usually does but given the interviewee that isn't surprising. It didn't change my opinion about Burr (I think he is intelligent and questioning but i don't often agree with his conclusions or think he is that funny) but it was insightful and interesting

He's finally released that Adam Buxton app. When he was describing it, I couldn't imagine what the point of it would be.

Now I've got it, and I still don't understand the point of it. It collects the podcast episodes, but my podcast app already does that. It has links to the Adam Buxton merchandise, blog and website, but I don't need an app to get links to those things. It has a playlist of the jingles, and some extra podcast material, but those could have been released on his Soundcloud, or as part of the normal podcast.

It's quite nice to look at and collects all things Buxton in one place but yeah it does feel pretty pointless.

Also - you can't download podcast episodes through it, just stream them, and once you start playing them you can only pause/play - so there's no option for a quick 30-second rewind if you got distracted or a skip ahead if you're seeking out a particular nugget of chat on a relisten.

Buckles did say it was in its infancy so maybe it will be improved, but at the mo it's a good-looking but less user-friendly way to listen to the pods.

I doubt more than a couple of hundred quid per episode. Perhaps a little more if you do something more creative and sell your services that way. Herring uninterestedly reading off an email on a phone is worth less than Adam doing a song.
But think about the audience figures. Even a popular podcast is about the equivalent of having one ad play out at breakfast time on the radio of a local radio station. And that spot would only cost you a few pounds, if you made your own ad.
There's the argument of repetition, but with the very niche nature and limited palette of advertisers, I wouldn't think this is the case. I don't want razors through the post or a weighing machine that prints stamps and I never will.

Interaction rates on podcasts are so low as to be terrifying. You can probably expect far less than half a percent ever bother to even go to the website. Then that has to turn in to a sale, which is usually with some introductory offer, so the margins are small. And of course with something like a mattress, it's a one shot deal. You're probably not going to hear from them again.
Advertising mostly works on impacts. The number of people who see or hear your ad multiplied by the number of times they see it.
It's hard to convince agencies, through which most large brands use, that podcasts deliver enough impact to carry big campaigns.

I liked how Adam asked Simon Amstell, "Yeah, but surely you knew you'd at least get a good story out of it?"

I'm a big fan of Amstell. I didn't find him uncomfortable in the podcast and I really enjoyed he and Adam's rapport.

Certainly, I'd be suspicious of the longterm positive effects of psychoactive substances, but often with this sort of stuff, the more effort/enthusiasm/trust/faith you put into the experience, the more you can get out of it. I get the impression Amstell really needed that experience to give him some hope.

The first time I did LSD was amazing.
Subsequent times, less so. In 2004 I had a VERY negative experience with LSD and vowed never to take it again. Which I've stuck to. I've taken shrooms a few times, though, and only once had a "bad trip" which wore off after an hour or so and I felt generally ok after that. The other times, with shrooms have ranged from, just fun and visually interesting, to total ego deconstruction, "spiritual" enlightenment type experiences.

I would probably take shrooms more if I could be arsed growing the kits and stuff, which I sort of can't be. The good thing about kits though, is that you can control your dosage quite easily (as opposed to LSD or getting drugs through other people or unknown sources etc.) and I definitely can vouch for the mental health benefits, when taking lower dosages. This, coming from someone who really can't smoke weed, take LSD or even drink alcohol anymore (as I end up becoming a horrible, bitter, paranoid wee cunt).

This Ayahuasca, the effect primarily seems to be that you vomit so much that you have an epiphany. It sounds like a shit experience that hinges entirely on your making a pilgrimage to some godforsaken part of Peru. I'll bet if you took the same stuff in your living room, and spent the evening boaking into your bath, you wouldn't feel it had been the same life-altering experience.

Well it is supposed to be part of a ritual where you have guides who help you through to your epiphany or whatever. It is a spiritual thing, not just a way to spend a Saturday night. I don't really believe any of it but some people do and that is half of the experience.

i thought her comments about her mate were meant to indicate that she is real and won't tell one of her mates that their show is great when that isnt what she thinks. I think it showed an interesting angle with regard to her personality and was by no means an attempt to get back at her mate in public.

Enjoyed the Kathy Burke one, even if the conversation verged a bit too much on small talk (the boiled egg stuff followed by use of ketchup and general diet talk lost me a bit), but overall I found it a good listen.

Don't reckon that she was settling a score with that actor she mentioned. Buckles did ask her "have you ever offended someone with your opinion on their acting?" and she answered honestly so it's not like she brought it up, or gave any info as to who it was.

One thing that's been bugging me lately is Adam's "my wife" catchphrase. It's never struck me as funny, and it's also far too similar to the Borat use to get away with using it as your own thing. (Feels like someone saying "groovy baby" in a trans-atlantic accent and then saying no it's not Austin Powers, I came up with it.)

It didn't bother me that much in the past, but hearing it for so long has soured me on it quite a lot, and I now get a bit embarrassed at the non-reaction it gets from the people he's interviewing.

It doesn't help that Scott Aukerman was using the Borat "my wife" pronunciation for years on Comedy Bang Bang as almost a parody of an incessant catchphrase until even he got sick of doing it. I do, however, never tire of hearing the Bulb jingle sung in that robot voice.

My favourite part of the Burke one was her non-reaction to Adam's "cysts are doing it for themselves" joke. "Oh, come on...".

Latest episode, with a chap who came to the UK as a refugee, is a very interesting, troubling but inspiring story. I came into it thinking "What the fuck is this? I listen to serious podcasts for this kind of thing, not Buckles." Like when Dan Harmon gets people on stage to talk about their harrowing experiences or their gender transitioning or whatever and all the fun sucks out of the thing. But actually Adam was gentle and humane and the chap is charming his story is good enough that by the end I was glad to have heard it.

I feel like refugee stories would make some excellent and educational films. I read one account of a North Korean woman whose adult daughter disappeared; she worried she'd been taken by the government. One day a car came to her house and told her to come with her if she wanted to see her daughter ever again. They blindfolded her for most of the journey, by car and various aeroplanes, until finally she arrived, to her surprise, at a South Korean airport, and waiting for her was her daughter, who had worked and saved for years to afford the safest extraction method for her mother. If that's not deserving of an Oscar, what the fuck is?

It really gives a human face to the refugee situation and goes some way to explaining why there are so many young men in the refugee numbers.

Anyway, I listened with open mind and must say - unless I'm confusing a non native English speaker's syntax, he has a Hell of a lot of liar's tells:

Narrative mirrors almost exactly the story in the Iranian refugee doc Buxton refers to.

His use of "mate" at end of an anecdote then self correcting "of course I didn't use "mate" back then"

I thought Homme came across as an essentially affable fella, albeit one blighted by that typical California rock penchant for earnest Hallmark wisdom. Very few people in the UK talk like that, we find it risible, but that's just the way those people are.

Buckles and Berry must've thought, "Oh here we fucking go" every time Homme launched into another dusty gust of purple profundity, but he's a nice enough bloke so they let it pass.

Also, his love of cult British comedy is obviously sincere. Someone should turn him on to Detectorists, he'd probably like that.

He does seem like a cool dude, for sure, but ugghhh, the cringey sound bites...

Also, hearing Homme wax lyrical about how great the "Secrets Of The Sound" video is, followed by the laugh vacuum it created when I saw it, slightly diminished my respect for him, a tad. ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Shgpssp9ZpA

Homme is about the only one with even the slightest grasp of how to respond to Berry's jibes in a comedic way, but it's the reason why I fucking hate these spoof reality comedy documentaries: The whole joke is "It's like a normal interview, except ... it gets awkward!!" ...

Yeah, it gets awkward because no one involved in it is very funny, has any material to work with, is able to bounce or riff off any other comedy people and the whole scenario is the most fucking unoriginal load of wank since the Office! STOP IT!!

It's purely shit phone memory management by me. Cheers though. However, like all advice people give me it will fall on deaf ears and I'll carry on like a fool using what I know is broken but is easy to fix. I'm an idiot.*

By the way, Adam's "best of" live show available for £5 on Go Faster Stripe with extras. DVD too if you want some apparently nice packaging. I loved it. And 90% I'd never seen. My mate who was vaguely familiar with him loved it too.

I've never seen his live stuff, so some of it may be familiar to aficionados.

Yeah if you think about it from Alexa Chung’s point of view, she met and hung out with the host of a radio show she enjoyed, who then came up to her later after he’d had a few drinks and put his hand on her arse. The reasoning that all Adam’s mates used to do it to each other at school doesn’t really fly does it.

No. It's weird he thinks that's ok. I suppose he thinks 'but it's only harmless me doing it, so it's not threatening' or something, but it shows an alarming inability to imagine that many women will not want his hand on their arse whoever he is.

I really think he was trying to preempt any later outrage. If somebody speaks out about him grabbing an arse he can refer back to the podcast and say "look, this is what it was!".

Buxton is a sack full of bad social decisions. Usually they make me cringe and come across is charming idiocy, but this one very much soured the rest of the podcast for me.

At no age would I have thought that was okay. Posh public school or no, arse touching is clearly right out.

How many women's arses has he touched without consent then? He's 48, so it is probably countless. And seeing as Minnie Driver says there is no hierarchy of sexual abuse, it seems Mr Buckles is the new Jimmy Savile. Blimey.

Listening to that Alexa Chung thing, the best you could say is that public school has a lot to answer for.
While I get that there was no seedy motive, I still can't fathom why you would do that?
Even to a bloke there's a parameter. There's a big difference between doing it to an old friend in a large group of friends and doing it to an acquaintance when you are by yourselves.

And I thought the "Weller, Weller, Weller" was a low point.

The rest of the podcast was quite fun though

Of course not. It's just surprising that for someone that funny, his mental judgment filter does fail him on a spectacular level.

Yet we are looking at it through Buxton's lens, so we see the misguided.
Look at it from Chung's view, there's not many ways to see a short, hairy stranger who was just turned up and surreptitiously helped himself to a handful of your buttock, no matter how smiley he is.

Yes, he's an occasional buffoon but even then, the phrase "What the fuck were you thinking?" doesn't cover it.

I actually really hope Joe is miserable and that his attempt at Hollywood fails, the little smug cuntfish in a big pond to Adam’s contented minnow in a puddle. It’s a little embarrassing how naked his greed for fame is and I just want Bux to not be wistfully jealous and realise that the path he’s on has far more heart to it. There’ll be humour and humanity in an aside to his dog on a Norfolk path than in Corny’s next middling film project, I expect.

Genuinely baffled at that. Obviously there's something I've not picked up on at all in this podcast which seems to have bothered many people in this thread. I'm not saying it's not there, but I didn't pick up on it.
They felt like friends this time round to me. They're both settling in to their skins. Joe clearly has never enjoyed the public aspect of "fame", nor the performing. Adam has found a perfect niche for his shed conjured brilliance.
Compare this podcast to their last 12 episode stint on 6 Music which was terse, Joe was phoning it in, literally some times.
There was genuine laughter in this, and some really interesting reminiscences and two blokes not too proud to say sometimes it failed, or they didn't enjoy it.

Yes, there is no hierarchy of abuse, so you are effectively 'crying rape' and making real victims of sexual assault less likely to go to the police/HR about such incidents. It's 2017, not 1973 when such things, like sex with minors, were just harmless fun.

Aye, there's a lot of stuff kids do to each other in school that doesn't fly in the adult world. Just because boys would yank each other's pants down in the changing rooms for laughs doesn't mean you can do that to someone at the gym in your 40s and expect no real world consequences.

I feel really weird about this.  I love Adam and have done for years, and chatting about his podcasts, from  six music back to xfm and now his own ones, have been real bonding experiences between my friends and me, and my sister and me.


But....  I really have to question his motives for including the arse fondling bit in this.  For someone so hyper aware, who after even the slightest misstep in a podcast chat he will address it at length in an outro, this just seemed an odd thing to bring up, let alone leave in at length.  Almost as if he was trying to pre empt any possible accusations against him in the current Weinstein climate.


Very odd.

I wouldn't suspect he's put that in deliberately to anticipate further stories coming out, or anything like that.
Instead, what unsettles me about it is that he still doesn't seem to think there's anything that wrong with it. I know he says he realises he shouldn't have done it, but he seems to think that saying he didn't intend it to be sexual, mitigates it in some way. Also, the way he said, "touched her on the arse..." or whatever. I don't know. Just comes across as still thinking it's a bit funny.

Having now actually listened to it:

1) The arse story really does sound like a planned bit of damage limitation. Way too quick in with ‘ooh that reminds me, about 10 years ago...’ after Joe’s gag. Just didn’t feel like a spontaneous tangent.

2) Having slated Joe above, he does come across fine in this one. I didn’t like his aloofness before when it came to all the Hollywood stuff; it just struck me as a little ungracious, especially considering how nerdy Adam is for all that. I suppose he’s rightly a bit insecure as since doing his first feature he’s not really made a big splash in a Hollywood yet. When he’s fully through the door and has a couple more credits to his name I reckon he’ll relax even more.

It seems to have worked for now at least. This is the only place I've read anyone discussing it or expressing any disappointment in Adam regarding it. As far as I can see there's been no Twitter outrage or anything, it's just mainly people praising the recent Xmas podcast on there.

I'd think it's likely that this has been brought on by Adam's own gnawing guilt regarding this, that has surfaced due to the Weinstein scandal and subsequent climate regarding sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.

The rest of the podcast did have quite a few, "...everyone's so sensitive nowadays" remarks sprinkled hither and thither, so I'm not sure it was put out there in a gnawing guilt kind of spirit so much as the wrong kind of 'me too'.

I can understand her being irritated and not amused, but I absolutely believe Buxton's defence of it being non-sexual and playful, albeit misguidedly, and that he wouldn't do it again today. (And not necessarily just because we're post-Weinstein, but because he's older and wiser.)
I doubt that Alexa Chung, ex-girlfriend of Lostprophets lead singer Ian Watkins, has thought about it since.

My thoughts exactly.
I took it as Adam's middle class guilt making an appearance due to the current climate and a single event that happened a decade ago (which he's probably been in turmoil over ever since!).
Still, the important thing is to overreact about everything these days to be on the safe side...

Listening to it again, they were definitely on the Weinstein subject when he brought it up. He said touching Alexa Chung's arse 'wasn't cool behaviour' (judging by her reaction), but then says he later did it to Johnny Greenwood, who didn't like it either. And he does say 'and then I stopped doing it, because I learned my lesson.' And after he tells the story starts saying 'do you think, in the current climate do you think Alexa Chung would be within her rights to suddenly say....' before Joe shuts him down by interrupting with 'no, no, it's over, it's over' and there's a sudden edit/switch to 'no no no no jingle'. If anything it's Joe who deserves some criticism by suggesting that the matter was so trivial that there was no chance it may have bothered anyone enough for them to bring it up. All a bit rum.

Say i ran your dog over because I got off on running dogs over, or I ran it over because it was a laugh? Presumably he didn't accidentally touch her arse, or there wouldn't be anything to discuss.

Please note I didn't say the case of a dead dog is at all similar to the case of Adam Buxton touching someone's arse. It was just given as an example of how intent matters.

In the dog example, the only difference is whether intent exists. In the arse-touching case, it's the kind of intent that matters. Adam touching her arse as a joke (intended for both of them) is, I think, less serious than touching her arse with the intent of humiliating her or gaining sexual gratification. Note: this doesn't mean I think it was a good joke, or that he should have done it.

This is taking it to a ludicrous extreme, but consistent with this logic, I think killing someone's dog because you think they would find it funny is less awful than doing it because you want them to suffer. It's still a terrible thing to have done, but horribly misguided rather than actively malicious.

I think if he were to post on this forum he would come across as one of the less weird ones. He has an occasional lack of social grace that to call being a weirdo is, well, a bit weird

No-one, including Adam himself, is saying it was right. I think the point is that a misjudgement of social interaction should be treated with no more than a "cuh, what a plum" rather than saying it is creepy or weird. It is on a similar scale of someone trying to do one of those cool handshakes when the other person tries to do a normal one and it all ends up in some jumble of digits and awkwardness, rather than the office lech groping the secretary's arse

Yeah, Buxton admitted it, and admitted to realising it was wrong. Which isn't admirable exactly, but it's something.

Intent, however, doesn't really matter when you're someone who's likely been subjected to the behaviour of people who think they have some ownership over your body most of your life.

Wonder how Chung read it, in the context of her telling Buxton she was a fan of his show, and then him touching her arse out of nowhere in front of David Walliams and Kate Moss. Certainly I'd imagine some rage and humiliation, which was evident in her reaction as reported by Buxton.

That ep of Jon Ronson On... where Buxton tries to justify his anger issues with his family wasn't pleasant to listen to.

I don't see how that follows.

If you've had your body touched without consent (in particular an erogenous zone like the arse, historically the preferred public touching area of creeps) the intent (I was doing it for a laugh/I'm used to it/you fucking love it you whore) doesn't justify disrespecting someone's physical space.

Stuff like this does venture into the area of "permissible sexual harassment" which is troubling.

Of course intent matters. It might not have affected her reaction but it should affect how he should be judged. He obviously didn't intend the reaction he got and was clearly apologetic. It is possible to see this from both sides

How plausible you find that scenario isn't the point. It was just an example (and a tongue-in-cheek one).

You can invent your own scenario to justify arse-touching if you want, or conceive a completely different one not involving arses at all.

It depends, like I'm saying, on intent, and how willing you are to believe what their intent is.

A sleazeball would touch an arse with the intent of having a sleazy sexy time, then say it was "just a joke", when of course it never was. Adam probably really did mean it as a joke - a theory corroborated by the Jonny Greenwood arse-touching fiasco, which had already come up years earlier.

Edit: Since I've already been accused of "justifying" arse-touching, I'd like to point out again, here, that I don't Adam should have touched the arse. I just think his intent was misguided so his crime isn't that bad.

I don't think it is. He is specific about it being a matey rather than sexual thing, and then goes on to say he did it to Jonny Greenwood as well and then abandoned it as clearly a bad idea. You can choose to not believe that if you want but I don't really see any reason to doubt it as he offered it up voluntarily and it is highly unlikely that Chung would "out" him about it as it is such an insignificant event.

It's significant in the context of the debate we're having about all this sort of stuff though. He's brought up that incident from nowhere and doesn't really seem to realise that it might be greeted with anything other than a jolly old giggle. It's jarring and, even on this tiny level, out of step with the public mood at the moment.

I dunno, if I was Alexa Chung, who by all accounts probably does listen to this, I'd think "well thanks a bunch for bringing that up".

In the context of debating this sort of stuff it is probably the least troubling by far of anything we have discussed involving famous people acting inappropriately. He clearly does realise some people might see it as more than a giggle, which is why he brings it up in the first place and is at pains to explain himself.

No, that's pretty much how Buxton describes it, albeit with a period of wandering around drunkenly between the "I'm a fan" thing and the arse-touch. There isn't some epic nuanced The Thin Blue Line take on it from multiple angles.

How do you know Chung sees/saw it as an "insignificant event"? That's your own fiction. How do you know she doesn't think "ah, the guy who touched my arse after I told him I enjoyed his radio show" whenever she sees or hears him? Or told her friends to watch out for his arse-touching behaviour?

Even after the past few months, men are still trying to dismiss, minimise and excuse stuff like this and create their own sliding scale of acceptability and this thread is a great example of that, even though most posters would probably consider themselves right on, man.

That's a good point. It was all off the cuff and there's a quantum of leeway because of that, but if he had any sense, he'd have said 'I won't say who' and for extra points, not made the whole story about him, and his embarrassment and worries of being metooed, and said something about how the person involved might have thought or still think and feel about it, beyond that her reaction wasn't positive at the time. Or how such unthinking behaviour must affect lots of women, and thinking or defending it as just 'jokey' won't be much consolation if someone feels violated. The sudden edit makes me wonder if other things were said they cut out.

I'm not implying he was trying it on with a fan (I believe it was a bloody stupid joke from school), just giving an entirely plausible reading of it based on, you know, the experiences of other women. I could have mentioned Buxton being 14 years older than her too. For someone who is normally thoughtful and reasonable you don't appear to be able to consider the point of view of women in incidents such as these. There's unconscious power dynamics at play in the incident that you are keen to overlook.

I know what you're saying, and your impulse to defend the victim is noble. But in a court of law, intent matters, as it must in discussions of morality. This should be obvious - murder is different from manslaughter. The fact that we're debating a hot, sensitive issue doesn't preclude this.

If I grab a stranger's arse thinking it belongs to my girlfriend, that's different from doing it because I'm horny. You might find this some sort of distasteful abstraction that reduces women to objects in a debate, or something - but you have to concede it's true, surely. And that's why it matters when we wonder how bad Mr Buxton's crime is.

Just a real-life example of how intent is essential when judging an action's moral worth - chosen because I assumed most people would agree that it makes sense.

We usually judge other (non-criminal) actions considering intent, too. I feel I'm beating a dead horse here, but if I ate your surprise birthday cake because I thought it looked delicious, you probably would be less angry than if I did it thinking it was my birthday cake.

What's the drive to try and place every such instance that doesn't constitute penetrative rape on some sliding scale?

Bringing the "court of law" thing into discussions like this is something I'm wary of. It's not too far from declaring that sexual assault and related crimes don't exist unless until a guilty verdict has been rendered in court, which is usually where the goalposts get shifted after "well why wasn't it reported to the police/charges were dropped" type shenanigans. We all know Dr Rock committed theft last month, though none of us have reported it or have waited for the jury's verdict. Court and sentencing is a specific contextual thing that gets misused in many many arguments.

Given that so many incidents of harassment and assault are excused and shrugged off by telling the victim "lighten up, it's only a laugh" or that they're too sensitive, the difference between "I like your bum, I deserve to touch it" and "I touched your bum because it was a funny private joke" is going to be negligible to those who actually have to put up with it.

That sounds like an odd yet understandable mistake where there would be another cake at the ready, or you would offer to reimburse me/bake a new one.

If people came and ate my birthday cake every other day because they thought they were entitled to it and laughed if I made a fuss or said "ah I thought it was my cake sorry" even though they clearly didn't, then the day you eat my cake isn't really going to be that different from all the others.

Because moral actions do exist on a sliding scale. That's the whole thing I'm trying to demonstrate. There is a scale, and it slides.

I'm not as troubled by this Buxton confession as some other people here, because I think it should be placed lower on the scale than they do - "misjudgement" rather than "grave misdeed" - because of intent.

You are happy to tell everyone that men should shut up and let women have their say in this, and at the same time are also happy to speak for women as well. Who is denying agency again? I dare say that if a man were to touch a woman inappropriately but honestly explain that is was a social faux pas rather than just lechery, many women would accept that and not take it as harassment or assault

You seem to think that talking about the intent of the "perpetrator" invalidates or overlooks the feelings of the "victim". I don't believe this to be true.

It doesn't change what the initial intent was though, and that is one of the things I use to judge Buxton.

We *do* know her reaction. Buxton mentioned both hers and Greenwood's.

I have seen more than one person's point of view in this regarding both Chung and Buxton - you were the one keen to not speculate on how Chung might have felt for some weird reason, because trying to empathise with anyone other than Buxton is a no-no?  For the past few pages you've been hammering what you believe to be Buxton's POV.

Again. He was a man pushing 40 touching the arse of a woman he didn't really know, which isn't something you're supposed to do for a laugh or for sexual thrills.

No-one's said he's Weinstein, or written him off by the way. I haven't done either. People were doing the opposite of what would have happened even a year ago (not even mention the arse touching) and actually discussing it and their own fan relationship to Buxton. Then you came along to let everyone know it was all "a fuss over nothing" and totally chill and we shouldn't think about how Alexa Chung might have been affected.

What do you think of this, by the way?

Quote
For the next four years, the world's most famous vegan lived out his wildest rock'n'roll fantasies. He toured relentlessly, he drank heavily, popped pills, frequented strip bars. He gave engagingly revelatory interviews, and once admitted to playing a game called "touch knob" at densely crowded celebrity parties that involved removing his penis from his trousers and seeing how many unwitting stars he could touch with it.

That was Moby, who I can recall saying it was a funny game him and his friends played. When the press reaction was less than favourable, he backtracked and said "touch knob" was something he made up for a joke. Now, if someone noticed him doing that and he told them he was only doing it for a laugh, would you be telling us it was a fuss over nothing?

There is no point in continuing this as you are so keen to misrepresent me and attribute attitudes I don't have and haven't shown. If you can't see the difference between what Buxton did and Moby has claimed to do, or why I might,  then there is even less

I am not speculating on Chung's opinion, not because I don't care but because there is such a broad range of what it actually could be. She glared at him so was clearly not happy but whether she thought he was harassing her or just a bit of a pillock we don't know. I am focusing on Buxton as he is the only person who's opinion we actually have and are discussing on a thread about him

As I said though I don't think this is a fair or honest debate so I am out. Good luck with whatever it is you are trying to achieve with your scorched earth policy but I am pretty sure you are doing the cause more harm than good

I'm sure Anderson's voice has completely changed since I heard him in that WTF podcast.  It has a sort of strange, preppy George Plimpton-esque twang to it now.  Great chat.  Love Buckles' Day Lewis impression.

I probably shouldn't, but I'm surprised each episode that reveals a new Buxton acquaintance. Sure, he's friends with Joe, and Louis, and Garth. Oh, he's mates with Julian Barratt too. And Gaz Coombs is coming round for tea. Didn't realise he knew Claudia O'Doherty. Bloody hell, he's friends with PT Anderson.

I really enjoyed the PTA one, for the fact it wasn't like all the other podcasts he's appearing on. I've heard how he started, and his process, and how he blah blah...  I haven't heard him react to someone repeatedly taking the piss out of Daniel Day Lewis. Lovely stuff. I liked how Adam went quite a long way down the "There Will Be Blood is funny" road before checking whether that was intentional.

They were talking about nice smells and said Sandalwood was nice (though Adam wasn't sure that was what he was talking about). On a sugar rush high from eating two big packs of Revels I decided I wanted some sandalwood-based aftershave so I would smell nice. I don't even know what sandalwood smells like, and am not buying it in order to attract ladies, but as I have a lot of money in my PayPal account I just bought some off the internet for £23. I'll probably list it as a business expense on my tax returns, depends what it says on the bank statement.

This one anyway, bought at random with an eye on not spending more than £30.

Mad Men was great but it should have finished after season 5, the final scene of that series sums everything up beautifully, and better than the actual final scene. Seasons 6 and 7 were repeating themselves to a certain extent:

Like most gentle kids animations from the 70s, only about 6 episodes were made but there were put into heavy rotation though only one episode seemed to enter the public consciousness - the one with the moon in the bucket.

No idea about The Flumps though. Ahhhhhh, see what I did there?

Obviously nothing did happen, but it was a bit weird. I'm not holding this up as a smoking gun or anything, I'm just really not sure what was going through his head at the time.

There's a couple of mentions of it on the last page of this old thread.

Another good episode with Jon Ronson, though I have heard a few interviews with him recently (and am working my way through Butterfly Effect) so some of what was said I have heard before.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Twed on March 20, 2018, 03:32:02 PM
Pleasant enough episode, but I think after giving him a few chances lately I can safely file Jon Ronson away as somebody who produces content that I don't need to consume. It's just so comfortable and boring. If you just listen to social media you learn about cottage porn studios and can hear the tales of sex workers first-hand, but Jon Ronson is a man who goes in having no clue that these things even exist and comes out the other side with a tepid reading of it all. And that's the case with all of this stuff for me, it's like a 101 overview. Learning that his favourite podcasts are NPR and the opinions of a bunch of Obama staffers telling each other about how Trump is bad is no surprise. I want to listen to journalists and authors who embrace movements and follow change, not ones who give me wet readings of recent history.

I did really link Frank and that thing where he documented a corrupt journalist trying to make it at the fringe (but that practically made itself).

Post by: Schnapple on March 20, 2018, 03:59:18 PM
Twed, I get the impression that you are pretty head on in movements and change yourself, so Ronson probably does seem rather wet to you. I get where you're coming from, but I can't really fault him as a broader public figures. He's an intuitive storyteller and a humanist, and there aren't really enough of those around in broadcasting, full stop. I don't think he, nor Adam, as two leftish middle-aged blokes are exactly the vanguard of contemporary culture that I find on other, more radically minded podcasts, but I do enjoy listening to them nonetheless.

His Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation anecdote got some serious chuckles out of me.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Twed on March 20, 2018, 04:08:31 PM
I'm certainly not an agent of change, due to being wet myself and not being somebody whose voice needs to be at the forefront of any movement because my own situation is mainly just fine, but the one thing I feel that all of us should do is amplify good movements above the noise of the corrupt and the powerful, and it's clear Ronson never will. By his own admission he is comfortably and in the centre, which is fine but not something I need to be a patron of. I can (as you eloquently point out) understand who the audience for his work is.

I thought the idea that search engines are gatekeepers in the same way that a TV executive is was absolute nonsense.

I honestly don't feel like I could give a satisfactory answer. Most voices I value are very small, largely social media based people who put food on the table through freelance writing for bigger papers. I think by the nature of it all, morally-guided, activist journalism lacks big recognisable names because they're not out there making a career in Hollywood or whatever, and listening to people who are from minority, less-privileged backgrounds usually means that they weren't able to make big names for themselves for the reasons they document.

Eve Peyser, Ken Klippenstein, Natalie Shure and Elizabeth Bruenig are the only names I can think of that anybody else is likely to recognise. For the rest I guess I'd just urge people to listen to grassroots social media and all of the tiny fighting voices. Twitter is an amazing platform outside of the high-profile bickering.

I'm sure that's my own failing though.

No, I understand, and despite getting worked up about issues a lot and finding myself part of online debate I hate it too. I'm sure some people think I get enjoyable adrenaline rushes from that kind of thing, but for me it's raised blood pressure and acid reflux. Twitter is surprisingly a refuge for me, due to being lucky enough to find enough good voices to combat the bad. Twitter is a source of a lot of the worst, but it's also where most of the hope can be found, for me.

Didn’t warm to Lolly Adefope on Taskmaster at all and her chat with Buckles hasn’t changed that impression.

She seems very mediocre and is by far the worst thing in Damned. Not actively bad I suppose, just no range whatsoever, which stands out a mile in such a great programme. Bland as fuck, bordering on non-acting. I’m struggling to imagine her keeping up with Steve Buscemi.

(Also her habit of doing a cod Northern accent when doing an “impression voice” with Buckles was thoroughly fucking irritating and she should stop doing that.)

I don’t find her hilarious but I love listening to her. It’s very comforting somehow .
Probably because she is so down to Earth and truthful when most others nowadays  are faking it.
She has a beautiful voice and a sexy laugh too at the risk of outing myself as a wrongun.
I think she took against Richard Herring so she was a little guarded whereas she (rightfully) realised Adam is fundamentally a good guy resulting in some great chemistry. We need more people like her- never playing the game and being unafraid to call things bullshit. I get the same warm feeling when I listen to Frank Skinner. I loved when Frank said Hamilton was shit. He maybe wrong- I just love the fact that he called it.

It's basically his podcast aesthetic (silly jingles, walking with rosie) applied to a sort of documentary thing. It was interesting and sometimes quite funny. I liked how his kids in this episode were called "Greedo" and "Agency". And they were just him doing a silly voice.

Post by: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on April 16, 2018, 11:58:35 PM
I've always assumed that Wes Anderson would sound like a fey, hesitant teenager, but he's actually quite demonstrative.

Listening to that podcast was a bit - a very little bit, admittedly - like when I first listened to the Pet Sounds sessions, during which Brian Wilson sounds utterly in charge and focused.

I'm aware, of course, that the successful Hollywood filmmaker Wes Anderson wouldn't have achieved so much if he was actually like one of the quirky characters from his films, but I was still quite surprised by his confident demeanour. He sounds like a nice enough guy, by the way, I'm not implying that he comes across as bullish or owt.

On a related note, I've never bought the notion that Woody Allen is a notoriously undemonstrative director who gives his actors very little guidance. His films are full of great performances, they didn't come to life by accident. He obviously knows what he's doing, his self-deprecating public persona is just a bit of shtick.

Yes, I know you could possibly apply that penchant for subterfuge to his private life too.

It was quite interesting, yes, but Bailey's transatlantic accent took a bit of getting used to. He has a severe case of "splidding hairs" Dave Clifton-itis.

Or, if the RSS feed is just a load of text, search "mp3" and you should be able to copy and paste the link to the episode into the address bar, and that'll set the download off.

I love Buckles and I loved the Bob Mortimer podcast, it was a lot sweeter and light hearted than I was hoping for, but it was great. I have to say, though, I really don't gel with Buckles' taste in music, at all: I think Spoon are incredibly dull, both their music and their personalities, I have little interest in Travis and I have even less time for this Eleanor Friedberger person. Fair play to Buckles for including music people in the podcast, I think this is nice and I quite enjoyed the Johnny Greenwood, Gaz Coombes and Johnny Marr ones, but Spoon and Eleanor can take their inoffensive indie wank and fack aff. Love you Adam. xxx

Thought Eleanor Friedberger's song was poor.

I just realised that I had fallen asleep before hearing that far into the podcast, listening now... 

Shite.

Her guitar playing is rubbish for a start, but the song is poop: standard Open Mic Night singer/songwriter fare. Crap, meandering lyrics, boring melody, basic chords.

Seriously though, what is the appeal here? Is her recorded stuff more quirky and/or interesting? Because that acoustic shit is really subpar.

I think it was one of the weaker episodes, and I see why Adam sat on it for two years, but it wasn't his fault. Eleanor didn't seem to have a lot of interesting things to say and there wasn't much in the way of chemistry there.

And the song at the end, yeah, "open mic" was my thought too. Actually it was my second thought. My first thought was "this is the exact chord progression of Knockin' On Heaven's Door".

I guess I don't mind if people who make crazy music turn out to be quite normal and/or boring, I'd much rather that than the Josh Homme style soundbites and slightly creepy, believing-their-own-hype, detachment.

I loved that, also, but Charlie Brooker came across really badly, I thought. His attempts to keep up with Adam comedically were embarrassing, and I can't stand manufacturered anger, so any time he called Adam a cunt for some minor infraction, I just felt disappointed. Oh, and him saying that he's aware that the storylines in Black Mirror are hacky and coming up with self-parodies seemed like cheating. "Bums bums a bum a willy and a boob computer games and shitting. I'm generating anger and incredulity about an entirely hypothetical situation just to have something to say. You cunt."

Brooker was entertaining. It sounds like they know each other a bit, but not enough for it to have gone in an offbeat Louis Theroux direction. I like it best when he gets famous figures to talk about esoteric stuff not directly related to their careers.

God, the Jonny Greenwood one was dull wasn't it? I'm a Radiohead fan too. The one they did later on was a bit better though.

I didn't think Eleanor Friedberger was too dull either. I don't think she clicked with Buckles, and he asked a few questions that seemed to rankle a bit. That's my amazing hot take on why he stuck it in the vault for so long.

Even when I'm not necessarily that into the people he's talking to (which is most of the time), I'm always cheered just by listening to Adam himself. I often like his intro and outro walking-the-dog bits the best. It's only really the chats with Garth Jennings and Louis Theroux I find truly great, because they're obviously on his wavelength... I think he baffles quite a few of his guests.

I think they're all good, apart from Johnny Greenwood, who comes across as a preternaturally boring man. He doesn't just get the same set of comedians that appear on all the other podcasts either, which is to his credit. 

Ideally he'd have a Louis Theroux episode every series. Really what we need is a Buxton-Theroux Athletico Mince style podcast which is just them shooting the shit.

One of the more boring ones I thought, it just sounded like two middle-aged men shooting the breeze in an art gallery. I know that's exactly what it was but it sounded like that.

The pair of them together are too amiable to make for a really interesting listen (to me). It intrigues me that Buckles is a clearly a lovely guy but has a nasty temper on him. I hope one day he interviews someone who riles him.

Probably been mentioned elsewhere but Buckles tells an hilarious tale about getting angry with a shop assistant, and threatened with arrest, whilst trying to buy tobacco at Cambridge station during his third appearance on RHLSTP. Narrowly beats the Greg Davies RHLTP hot milk up the arse anecdote for sheer chucklesome goodness.

Quite a shame - if that popped up in my podcast list I'd have been completely blindsided, even more than PTA since at least there's the Jonny Greenwood connection.

Yeah, which isn't really to insult Maron because that was a good chat. But I did smile a lot at Sedaris's joyous burst of laughter at Adam's précis of the Oedipus myth. That seemed to be the point he jumped on board.

Apparently Buxton recorded a podcast with Mac Demarco but it didn't end up getting recorded.

That's such a shame.  Should always have a back-up recorder going, Buckles.

I know this podcast has been mentioned elsewhere here, but Frank Skinner's co-host Emily Dean has/had a dog-walking-comedian-chat podcast.

They're all pretty good, but it's definitely worth highlighting the Buxton episode, as he goes into more detail than I'd heard elsewhere about his feelings on Joe going to Hollywood. Also it's a great chat overall covering the Channel 4 years, Rosie, anger issues etc.

It took me a long time to warm to her on the Frank Skinner show, but she's great. Naturally very funny and much more self-effacing than she comes across at first. The dog podcast is great too. Maybe you'll always dislike her but I'd definitely give her another go if you like the look of her podcast guests.

I think the key to warming to Emily Dean is getting to those points where you pick up on how self-aware she is and how much she will use the persona she presents as a source of self-deprecating humour.  I recall someone in an old thread about the Frank Skinner podcast calling her 'vile' which I thought was a bit strong and made me wonder if they'd listened to her for more than one podcast.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Utter Shit on October 28, 2018, 09:52:21 PM
Yeah I can definitely see how you'd get a negative opinion of her at first, I know I did, although vile seems harsh. It's a subtle little act, sort of saying "God imagine if I was that entitled and snobbish" while acknowledging that to a small extent she IS that person, and although it doesn't take too long to see what's real and what is played for laughs, it was only after listening regularly over months if not years that I really began to warm to her properly. Now I'm properly on board though, she's very funny and likeable in her own right and is great at teeing up the people around her. Plus because of her job and background she has a seemingly endless pool of anecdotes about people crossing backgrounds, generations and industries.

I never did get on board with Gareth Richards though, sadly. I didn't dislike him by any means, but his nervous delivery and beta male persona made me constantly anxious for him, every time he made a joke it felt like he had no confidence in it...I'm assured by people who have seen his stand up that this is just as much a persona as Emily's, but I just find it stressful to listen to him.

It's kind of a shame we only get one Louis episode a year because they're always my favourite podcasts. They both have such a great sense of silliness. Laughed like a drain at Louis' "uncouth" suggestion at the end of this episode.

Also, in fear of this turning into the Emily Dean Fan Club:

Clearly Skinner is incredibly prickly and easily offended, to the point that even the wording of compliments causes umbrage, but Dean is a grand master at being able to tease or mock him without causing offence. It's like watching a virtuoso at work, knowing the exact points that it's OK to ridicule him, and when to massage his ego.

I really enjoyed it also. And it alerted me to Louis new shows which start airing on BBC2 Nov 4. He says one of them is about adoption, which is my issue, but

Quote
Another episode, Take My Baby, sounds even more emotionally charged. Theroux visits the US adoption capital of California, where most adoptions are carried out privately as part of a multimillion dollar industry. Pregnant women can receive up to $50,000 for giving up their newborn to adoptive parents willing to pay the price, while agencies, facilitators and lawyers can earn thousands of dollars per baby.
In what's sure to make for sensitive viewing, Theroux meets birth mothers preparing to hand over their babies, some of whom have histories of poverty, addiction and abuse, which can push women down the adoption path. He also meets prospective parents, who are often left unsure as to whether the birth mother will actually give her child away once it's born.

As usual in these type of things, adoptees experiences of this traumatic event that often leaves them fucked up forever (hello!) seems not to be an issue, but I'll wait and see before passing judgment. That it's being done by private firms, literally as a business where babies are bought and sold, seems a fair bit dodgy and deserves some attention.

I could happily listen to Adam and Louis chat for hours, they have such a lovely rapport.

Listening to Louis reveling in the sillier side of his personality is always fun and interesting, as that's something  you very rarely see in his TV work.

That's understandable, given the grave subject matter of most of his documentaries over the last 15 years, but even in his Weird Weekend days he never really showed how naturally funny he can be. Wry and amusing, yes, but he always kept a lid on his predilection for nonsense. Again, understandable, as those programmes wouldn't have worked with a host who was blatantly pissing about. His softly softly approach, even when dealing with outright loons, always reaped dividends.

I've seen a preview copy of Louis' polyamory episode and it is, typically, very serious and sensitive, so I laughed out loud at his description of it while talking to Adam. He wasn't taking the piss out of polyamory or the people in his programme, far from it, but there is such a funny contrast between the language he uses in the podcast and the way he puts himself across in the documentary.

I somehow missed her previous podcast, but Tash is very funny, sharp and honest. Her mind works very quickly, she's naturally witty. A properly funny person. I laughed a lot during that podcast, while feeling her pain (man) regarding debilitating break-ups.

What's the fucking point? Yes, we all feel that whenever we break up with someone, but the fear that it will happen again is enough to put you off relationships for life.

Haha I do remember that being a bit clunky actually. It did lead to Pegg saying he missed George Lucas after watching The Last Jedi though. In the past few years I've gone from disliking the prequels to looking back fondly on their vibrance and creativity, and it's interesting that Pegg would say that when he was actually part of this new trilogy.

Is he that one with the elbow-padded Geography teacher's jacket and the 'on the register' barnet? Seems to be a whole sub-genre of these types now. Men who deliver their lines with their arms folded whilst staring at their shoes. No idea who started it or why anyone would want to see it, but it's getting difficult to tell them apart. The only stand out beta comic I can think of is Tim Key - at least he has a bit of glint in his eye, even if he does stumble over every other line.

From the most recent crop of podcasts I probably enjoyed the Theroux and Brooker ones the most anyway. Brooker has he tone and personality somewhere between a hysterical woman and a 16 year old boy. No idea how anyone could live or work with him. Once you get past the character quirks though, he's pretty interesting to listen to. Especially liked hearing him go into detail about the writing process. And how people who haven't had any screenplays taken up should jump out of the window.

Theroux is a strange impenetrable figure who seems continually bemystified by everything, not least of all by himself. I probably wouldn't have liked that one if the two weren't friends. There was a nice bit of mutual pisstaking, and we got witness Buxton a bit abrasive in places; as opposed to his usual scrupulously polite and courteous self. Made a nice change. Would like to hear him interview more people from his childhood past.

After hearing his episode I have completely changed my opinion of Simon Pegg.

Some of his odd, more Hollywood behaviour* had started to grate despite my love of his early films, but he was fantastic here.  Incredibly intelligent yet modest, emotionally literate when talking about his teens and twenties and budding sexuality, just very human and relatable.

*E.g. His one show appearance with the burger.

Felt a bit sad when Simon was asking Buckles why he hasn't developed his own thing.  Ad was very self-deprecating but anyone that listens to this knows he has the talent to do it, just maybe not the patience for the admin and schmoozing required.

I'd be the first to help kickstart a Buxton film or web series.  Hope he reads these sort of threads, despite his extreme sensitivity, to know how much he's loved

I think he's marvellously funny and endearing and engaging as a host - even when he's just going on a walk with Rosy. He'd be high on my list of "people to go for a pint with", if I were forced to make such a wanky list. And you know what, I personally value his podcast more than any of the fucking Mission Impossible films.

But I've always found his sketches a bit tedious and... daft in the wrong way. I don't think he's an exactly natural sequencer of ideas in that sense.

Pegg seems nice enough, but he's not particularly funny in interviews.

I was caught off guard and laughed loudly in the forest when he mentioned seeing the speed bumps sign and exclaimed "what have I DONE?"

I can only echo the general sentiment that Simon's sometimes rubbish when he's not in his own things, but I loved his book and this is an extension of that. If you liked the podcast, read it, it's more of the same.

I was a bit surprised by Pegg's early sexual successes. I always had him down as a late developer, not sure why. Possibly because of his love of all things geek.

Incidentally, did anyone catch the name of the author he read at uni who'd apparently foreseen the present epoch of mass infantalism? Rewound it a few times but couldn't parse it.

She's obviously a lot more steely in real life than her gormless persona. She gave poor old Buckles short shrift when he blundered into a centrist dad critique of feminism. Made passing reference to seeing a therapist too, which he never picked up on.

Some lowbrow laughs from his wind song and Rosie's political song, too. Top stuff.

Again, to be a negative dick: I really love the podcast but whenever I look up the comedians he interviews I always come away thinking they're ghastly.

In fact most of them aren't actually nearly as funny as Adam in his interviews with them. He often says obviously silly ludicrous whimsical things and they react like "wow what a slightly mad thing to say". Every time it happens I think "Aren't you supposed to be professional funny person?" The people who don't do this are always the reliably brilliant guests - Louie, Garth, and of course Joe.

I haven't really disliked anyone he's had on, though the Burr-Buxton match up made for a really odd dynamic.  The image of Buxton at a bar with Bill Burr and Joe Rogan, while the two of them are holding court on conspiracy theories, almost makes me shiver with sympathetic awkwardness.

I enjoyed the first half of the Nish one but the second half lost me.

Might be Nish overload as he’s doing the podcast rounds at the mo, but I also find it a bit dull when people start listing all the great gigs they’ve been to.

And I couldn’t help but laugh when Adam said “I see you’ve brought your guitar” and he really had.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Mango Chimes on December 10, 2018, 02:09:45 PM
I haven't listened to the latest yet, but I get the impression Nish is one of these people who is well liked as a comedian not for being funny, but for being a loud laugher at other comedians. I suppose it's not bad thing that there are at least some people out there getting on by being nice.

No comments on the last two? Chalabi I wasn't a fan of at all, but I enjoyed Adam occasionally throwing unreciprocated flippancy into the interesting chat with the kidnapped man.

Nish Kumar seems to get a lot of shit on here and I'm not entirely sure why. Is it the laugh? He's a perfectly competent, if maybe a little uninteresting, comedian, and always comes off as a really smart and lovely guy. Really enjoyed his ep on this.
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Old Gold Tooth on December 12, 2018, 04:50:41 PM
When he's having an actual conversation, I agree that he comes across very well.

But I've noticed there's always a tipping point when his laughter gets out of control - the last 20 or so mins of his recent appearance on Herring's pod was barely listenable as he suddenly started howling with laughter at any vaguely humorous remark from Rich.

If you're regularly acting like something's the funniest thing you've ever heard when it clearly isn't *that* funny, I'm not sure that's an endearing thing in a comedian, for the audience at least. But yeah he was much better on the Buxton pod.

In the space of a few days I listed to Nish on RHLSTP & Buxton - while I thought the chat with Adam was a great, I found the RHLSTP a trudge.  Perhaps it’s the temptation on RHLSTP to stop treating it as a conversation and to play up to the audience.

I Blame Dennis Hopper, the podcast Adam recommends towards the end of one of his recent episodes, is good fun. It involves the likeable, knowledgeable actor and filmmaker Illeana Douglas interviewing various other actors and filmmakers in a pleasantly informal, geeky way.

The Joe Dante episodes are particularly in-depth and revealing, but I've also enjoyed listening to her chats with Michael McKean, Fred Willard, Bobcat Goldthwait, Alfred Molina, a grumpy Ed Asner and an annoyingly exuberant yet occasionally quite interesting John Landis.

Cheers for the Illeana pod tip.  I think she may have been harbouring the idea ever since she was on Dinner For Five, where she was somewhat testosterone-jacked by the four other blokes each appearance.  Listened to the John Landis ones.  God, that guy is always such a ball of fire (a reference he'll like, what with the thousand and one Screwball allusions he made throughout).  The most pleasing curveball was when he started rhapsodising Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce.

Boorman's Excalibur is a bit of a favourite, so this looks great.  Maybe he'll get into a juicy frisson with Kermode again after it comes out, which would be fun.

Maybe you'll always dislike her but I'd definitely give her another go if you like the look of her podcast guests.

I detected an undercurrent of despair in the Ross/Cornish podcast. It was obviously recorded after the King Arthur film tanked in America, so Ross practically begs people to go and see it when it's released in the UK.

Ive been quite surprised by Cornish's chosen path of very mainstream fare, considering his quirky and sharp-witted personality. Even Attack the Block was a lot more straightforward than I was expecting.

In that Ross podcast, Cornballs states that he's always wanted to write and direct good, intelligent commercial films. Fair enough, we need more of those.

Ross' podcast is alright, by the way. Admittedly, the only other episode I've listened to is the one with Robert Zemeckis, but I found that quite enjoyable. It's basically just Ross the film enthusiast - as opposed to Ross the tired chat show host and media personality - interviewing filmmakers he admires. He knows his stuff and asks good questions.

I think people sometimes don't realise he's just a normal middle-class man, as opposed to the upper middle-class men posing as normal middle-class men who fill the ranks of the British entertainment industry.

Didn't like that centrist rant in the beginning.  Did like when he affectionately talked about comedy later on.

EDIT:  Actually looking at his wiki, he does have the same Oxbridge (literally both) history as everyone else.  Maybe he's just not got that great a memory for a history major.

For some reason I don't get any adverts on any of my podcasts, despite using a free and pretty basic podcast app.

The world is much worse than you think. Podcasters usually put ad insertion points in their podcast, which allows the podcast aggregator to insert targeted ads at that point. I get adverts for Citizen's Bank Boston when I listen to UK-based podcasts.

You're blowing my mind.

I've always just used the vanilla Apple Podcasts app on my phone. What hellish means are people using to listen to podcasts that punish them with these ads? And why?

Ayeeee. So it seems Acast are dropping the ball a bit, a couple of other podcasts I've been listening to in the last couple of days have had ads dropped in arbitrarily, where in the past they've always been in the correct place.

The most recent RHLSTP: Herring's intro and promo, later a proper Acast ad inserted, immediately followed by Herring doing the same ad, but with his own voice and different wording.

Their chat about Jerry Seinfeld was quite interesting. I like Jerry, but they're absolutely right, in interviews he always comes across as an Olympian God who's cracked the secret of comedy.

Yes, he knows what he's talking about to a large degree, he's been a successful professional comedian for over 40 years, but he really does seem to think his opinion are cast-iron truths.

Mind you, that can all be excused by the hilarious way in which he looked at Gervais during that notorious Talking Comedy special. Seinfeld obviously, and quite rightly, thought he was an absolute charlatan waffling bollocks.

I've been so afraid to acknowledge feeling this way, because I love Buckle's podcast and all his charming, under-stated fears of the world, but, aye.

I appreciate Adam has to be tactful in bringing up such potentially explosive topics, but I couldn't help feel like Adam was helping Gainsbourg essentially dismiss Bjork's claim that she was sexually assaulted by Von Trier. I know it's not up to Charlotte Gainsbourg (or Adam) to confirm or deny Bjork's accusations, but that whole chunk of the podcast just left me feeling horrible.

Bjork's accusations, from Oct 2017 (just for context) (https://www.facebook.com/bjork/posts/10155782628166460)
Title: Re: The Adam Buxton Podcast
Post by: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on May 20, 2019, 09:51:23 PM
I thought that too. Granted, it's not as if Gainsbourg said, "Well, he never sexually assaulted me so I think he's alright." That's not what she was saying - she made it clear that von Trier is 'difficult' - but it was all a bit awkward.

I don't think they were trying to dismiss Bjork's allegations, it's just that neither of them really wanted to talk about such a serious subject. Adam brought it up, of course, probably because he felt he had to, but, good interviewer though he is, he's not really equipped to deal with this stuff.

As you say, it's not really up to Adam Buxton and Charlotte Gainsbourg to weigh in on this. The latter is qualified to talk about her experience of working with von Trier, but I really don't know what else she could say under these circumstances.

I believe Bjork, of course, and I'm pretty sure Adam and Charlotte do too. However, that section of the podcast was really quite... ugh.

EDIT: Really, Gainsbourg should've said "Bjork's ordeal sounds horrendous and I hope cunts like von Trier are never allowed to work again." But Gainsbourg isn't me, so she didn't say that.

Even though she wasn't trying to be funny, I chuckled when she said, without hesitation, that her dad would've been #cancelled immediately in this day and age.

Based on everything I've read about Serge Gainsbourg, I really do think he was 'just' a provocateur as opposed to an actual pervert. His public behaviour in later life was absolutely tragic, but by that point he was a chronic, self-loathing alcoholic. I'm not making excuses for him doing horrible things like calling a porn actress a whore during a live French TV chat show, but at that stage he was just a sad, drunken parody of himself who relied on controversy to keep him relevant.

Anyway, I thought Charlotte came across as a really nice, thoughtful person

Haven't finished the Gainsbourg one yet but anyone else get the sense she might have actually quite liked that hotel and stayed there again on purpose

Yes, but at the same time she obviously found its hipster wankiness quite funny.

EDIT: Really, Gainsbourg should've said "Bjork's ordeal sounds horrendous and I hope cunts like von Trier are never allowed to work again." But Gainsbourg isn't me, so she didn't say that.

Yeah, I guess I would've been appeased with a bit more open support for Bjork and open criticism of Von Trier, instead Gainsbourg was praising Von Trier. Again, that's her prerogative of course, but I feel it minimises Bjork's story (and maybe in that sense also minimises the #metoo movement, which Adam Buxton has brought up a few times, with a slight tone of "oh dear is it really all that bad?!")

I'm not saying Adam Buxton = #cancelled, but I am saying you're on thin fucking ice mate! ... And he's under the threat of losing himself one more loyal (latte sipping, neck beard wearing, tree hugging, pinko, snowflake, liberal, SJW fag) fan. ... I jokes. I could never hate you Adam. HEARTS.

I don't get that impression at all. If anything I think he seems horrified things are so bad and hopeful it is getting better. I think he is wary of Twitter #cancel culture but I think that is a slightly separate issue, and perhaps more understandable from someone on the sharp end of it, rather than us lot who can look at it from a distance

Caught up with three of these yesterday.

Charlotte Gainsbourg - AMSR heaven. I'd never heard her "real" speaking voice before so my respect for her English accent in LvT's films has massively increased.

James Acast(er) - He makes a good interviewee. Nothing new or Earth shattering but I made a note of his "recommended albums from 2016".

For someone with enough experience in sound/music making, Buxton doesn’t half pick some shite venues for these chats doesn’t he? Latest one sounds like it was in a giant metal tank. Awful reverb.

Not really. The gag was the window.
They were talking about the space race, and Frank mentioned that Laika, first dog in space, died up there.
Adam seemed taken aback and dismayed having assumed Laika made it back.
Frank cracked the joke that it was because they forgot to crack a window on Sputnik II.
Well, it made me giggle.


Now that you have revealed that you hadn't listened to it, I see why – without context – your reply had somewhat humour-flattening logic.

I felt he could've been more condemning of Bukowski's behaviour - an uncharitable person could argue he was excusing/downplaying the wife-beating. Skinner himself used the phrase 'thin ice'

As much as I miss the 6music show I’m happy to have these meet-ups once or even twice a year. Especially since Joe doesn’t seem as upright as he has been in the past. Plus we have Louis’s Bowie song to look forward to on the 200th podcast.

BTW for those who don’t know, social media shy Joe is now on Instagram under - mrjoecornish Seems like he’s quite active in replying to people’s comments as well

I felt he could've been more condemning of Bukowski's behaviour - an uncharitable person could argue he was excusing/downplaying the wife-beating. Skinner himself used the phrase 'thin ice'

This is in addition to the Alexa Chung bottom-patting and moaning about women putting on make-up on the trains. I love the lovely bastard but he has blind spots (like us all)

Exactly my feelings on the big loveable bastard! Every now and again, I have a big happy grin on my face, only to feel it peel right off my face at Buckles starting some sentence dangerously veering towards something akin to "it's political correctness gone mad" .... It's nowhere near as bad as that, but I have wee moments where I feel the colour drain from my face.

The last few have been absolutely amazing though!
About a 3rd into Episode 100, trying my best to savour it and make it last, because it is a thing of total joy!

It's been said before, but it bears repeating: if you only knew Louis Theroux from these podcasts, you would never believe that he basically spends his life making terminally serious and depressing documentaries. Now whenever I see him chatting sensitively to heroin addicts or people with degenerative diseases, I always think, "He's probably fighting the urge to go 'This is boring, let's have a silly harmonised singsong.'"

He's properly fucking hilarious. His appearance on the Joe Rogan podcast is a good listen if you haven't heard it. .

Finished Ep 100, that was quite special and lovely. 

Quote
Buckles: "What was the worst report you ever got, was there a phrase that sticks in your head from those days, Joe?"

Cornballs: "So I went through a really stupid phase in school, where I just didn't give a shit..."

Buckles: "Mmmhmm. I think I remember that..."

Louis: "What was the other phase?"

Cornballs:"We started studying Charlemagne and my God it was the most boring thing... It just felt like dying..."

Louis: "You were fine with the other French kings.."

Cornballs:"But when you're young and you're full of sap, and energy and excitement and ..."

Buckles: "Spunk?"

Cornballs:"And spunk... You're absolutely brimming over with spunk...."

Thoroughly enjoyed the Joe and Louis episode. As mentioned, it seems bizarre that Louis does these documentaries about such extreme subjects as death, religious extremism, pedophilia etc.  but he's clearly just as silly as Adam & Joe, perhaps more so going by this latest podcast. An excellent listen.

Also caught up with the Frank Skinner one which had somehow passed me by. Another really enjoyable episode and it got me thinking about a couple of things. 1. I ought to go back and do a MASSIVE catch up on his Absolute Radio show. I used to be an avid listener but stopped around 2015 when life and other stuff got in the way (also, it did become a little repetitive, smug and twee but Frank truly is one of the quickest wits in British broadcasting. 2. Hasn't Herring been trying to get Frank on RHLSTP for years? I assumed Frank turned down any sort of podcast interview due to being private, beneath him or his general gitishness, but maybe he has beef with Herring (a horrible combination of meat and fish).

He's also done Walking The Dog and James O'Briens' podcast recently (having a new show to promote may have encouraged him).
I suspect Richard Herring's is a harder sell due to it being a live show rather than a chat which can be arranged more around the guest.

Frank would be in his element there, no? He's a fantastically quick-witted man who enjoys playing off a crowd.

He would, but I was meaning more the effort of having to get to a theatre with a set time/date to do a show for not much money.  I believe Adam tends to travel to his guests, which must make it easier for them to say yes.

Post by: worldsgreatestsinner on July 15, 2019, 09:06:12 PM
Yeah, that's what I've always thought with Herring. The live show element stops some guests from taking part. I suppose you also have the element of people not wanting to slip up in what they're saying. A recorded podcast can be edited before release, a live audience means something that shouldn't have been said will still leak out. So I think that's why he misses out on certain guests.

the whole Bowie improv section, capped with Joe's glorious original, had me beaming from ear to ear. Joyous.
Hearing 3 pals just riffing on 35-odd years of friendship gave a warm glow. Adam seemed properly touched by his pals' support, especially in his heartfelt post-chat wrap-up

Re: Frank Skinner's story about doing a gig with The Fall at Glasgow Uni.

I was there that night (it was Fresher's Week in 91 or 92 IIRC). My mate was working as a bouncer and got me in for free. He told us at the time that one of Bad Manners' crew actually pulled a GUN on Mark E Smith, and that's why all the security working cleared out and the cops were called in instead. A knife seems far more plausible in retrospect, but my mate wasn't really one for tall tales (but maybe the person that passed on the info to him was. Who knows?)

I do know that if Frank had stuck around to watch the Fall, I don't think his lifelong fanaticism would have taken root that night. They were astoundingly poor  (perhaps not surprising given earlier events), and even my mates who were diehard Fall fans had to concede they were awful. I'd taken some pretty strong acid though, so Mark E Smith's incomprehensible slurring over a band barely holding it together just sounded hilarious to me.

Frank Skinner's set was brilliant though. To this day, one of the best standups I've seen.

Pascoe always comes across as intelligent and thoughtful in interviews. And then I see her stand-up and find it quite pedestrian and shallow. I think she has dumbed herself down a bit to appeal to a more mass market,which is fair enough I suppose but a bit of a shame as I reckon if she used her intellect more she could be a really good stand-up

I was only joking around. I think Adam Buxton has had one of the best and most interesting hit rates with guests. As in people I wouldn't usually have been bothered with on another podcast.

He is genuinely brilliant and I would say (not in his mind) a national treasure. Bit much I know, but we all said that about Bob Mortimer 10 years ago. Now the greatest.

I've completely forgotten what I've just written.
