A very good 25 December 2021 to you, gentle reader! Whether it is Christmas day to you or just another Saturday, I sincerely hope that today is nothing but kind to you and yours.
My third pick of the podcasts that have meant the most to me in 2019 (so far!), featuring: Laurie Ruettimann; Rich Roll; Jeff Gordinier; Richard Herring; Tony Slattery; Joey Diaz; Andrew Schulz; RuPaul; Michelle Visage; Nile Rodgers; Leonard Maltin; Jessie Maltin; and Fred Willard.
Our “post-truth, post-shame” world needs the comedian’s ruthless clarity and respect for the audience. This post is inspired by wise words from Nitin Sawhney, Whitney Cummings, Matt Stoller and Sean Jones QC.
My pick of the five podcasts that have meant the most to me in 2018, featuring: Adam Buxton; RuPaul and Michelle Visage; Michael Rapaport; Cariad Lloyd’s Griefcast; and Tim Ferriss.
Some words on Griefcast live, in which Cariad Lloyd, Katherine Ryan and Emma Freud met at BFI London for an upbeat and cathartic podcast chat on death, mortality and the grieving process.
