Only A Podcast

Two blokes, upside down and many miles from home, talk about popular culture. And unpopular culture too. Books, music, films, the news, what we had for dinner last night.. everything is fair game.

About Only A Podcast

Born out of time on our hands during lockdown, a vague feeling that we were missing out on something and the realisation that our voices didn’t sound too bad once we’d set up our mics, phones and speakers, we put an end to procrastination and got on with the job.

So here we are.. lots of hot reckons about all sorts of topics, but probably not politics (but who knows, everything’s political eh?), in an easily accessible format, on apps you probably already use.

It’s just like you’re down the pub with us. So get a round in, and join in the discussion.
