Live Review, Athletico Mince, London Podcast Festival, Kings Place,

I used to think of podcasts as the kind of thing nerdy spods did in their bedroom for other nerdy spods to listen to in their bedroom, but in recent years they have gone overground. There are podcasts for all tastes and a lot of the best comedy-related ones are getting a live outing at Kings Place at the first ever London Podcast Festival.

Online Review: Matt Berry Does...Father's Day, BBC iPlayer

Following the success of Matt Berry doing the Boat Race, the second instalment in this six-part series finds the undisputed king of the striking vocal tone tackling the subject of Father’s Day. There is only really one reason to listen to this and that’s to hear the way Berry strings out the phrase “Youkay Daddy” over and over again. It will make you laugh so much the BBC should issue a disclaimer in case of any damage to internal organs.
