July 2019 - Y Dynion Diarth
Back in 2016 Sian Harries, Ben Partridge and I wrote a pilot for S4C which Zipline Creative packed with legends and shot on a shoestring. Y Dynion Diarth didn't get picked-up, but we've popped it online should anyone be interested - After all, once you've gone to the bother of organizing a wedding in a service station, you want to show that off.
It stars Siw Hughes, Sian Harries, Dafydd Hwyel, Sara Gregory, Rhodri Evan, Carys Eleri and Gareth J Bale - with Ben and myself popping up in there too. It's in Welsh, with English subtitles available.
And July also saw the final episodes of Jolyon Rubinstein's topical discussion podcast We Need To Talk About... appear on Spotify.
I've worked on the show since it began, back in September 2017, and we've played host to some incredible guests and talked about Brexit a lot. The full back catalogue - including a Best Bits compilation of the last 6 months, is available on Spotify now.
May 2019 - Live At ElevenOn the 23rd May, I took part in Live At Eleven, a brand new topical comedy show for BBC Radio 4.
With no election coverage on the night of EU polling day here in the UK, I built one myself, filling-in the gap by playing clips of old elections from the BBC archive. My bit, and the rest of the show, is currently available on BBC Sounds (as, despite the show's name, it is actually available to listen to online for about a month).
Hosted by Toby Foster and Lou Conran, the show was produced by Ed Morrish and features Raul Kohli, Jennifer Williams, me and a real-life clown.
I also recently took part in Danielle Ward's podcast Any Stupid Questions. Danielle herself wasn't actually there, so Carrie Quinlan stood-in as host as Olivia Lee and I asked very stupid questions to experts Rick Muir (of the Police Foundation) about the Police and Claer Barrett (of the Financial Times) about Banks. Both shows, and the rest of the Any Stupid Questions back catalogue are available to download now.
And talking of podcasts, I am also a regular writer on We Need To Talk About…, Spotify’s topical comedy podcast, presented by Jolyon Rubinstein. There’s a new episode out every Friday morning and the whole back-catalogue of the show (including special one-to-one interviews and one-off documentaries) is available online now.
