Welcome to SIZZLETOWN, the world’s first late-night call-in podcast, hosted by comedian and broadcaster Tony Martin, with Matt Dower on the Pots n Pans. The concept is flawed at best, the callers are highly suspect, and the whole thing is in constant danger of flying off the rails. Enjoy! (Sensitive listeners should note that Tony has done his best to ensure the podcast is free of problematic content.) WARNING: Problematic content.

Not suitable for public transport
Or listening to at the gym, or walking in public with headphones. You get the picture. I was questioned by the local constabulary for some time as they tried to ascertain my state of mind. Still giggling, I was eventually released after they googled “Tony Martin” and it became obvious the German cyclist had appeared on a number of podcasts and imagined he would’ve had funny anecdotes. Best listened to in the privacy of your own home. There should probably be some warning at this point about driving here as well...
One right up the bracket
This is a great podcast, just ask Steve Bracks.
Ask Bob Car
Ask the Labor Party
