Great show

Really like this show- OK it's a bit of 'This American Life' rip off, but steal from the best I say


First class as always. Genuinely inventive radio programming and reminds me of Jarvis Cockers late night programs.


Have always admired Josie's stand-up, thoughtful, original and a refreshingly different content-over-style approach - the antidote to 'mainstream' comedians and far better than any roadshow-based comics.

The podcast is fascinating; absorbing short stories where you feel that you are being let into a little secret first-hand from the subject without the distraction of an interviewer. Josie links these together with thoughtful segues, personal insights all delivered in her trademark can-tell-she's-smiling delivery with some cool 'found sounds' (I especially liked hearing some Four Tet on there).

As someone who listens to podcasts every day of the week, I would highly recommend this if you want a genuinely interesting listen.
