David Hepworth, Mark Ellen and chums cast an occasionally jaundiced eye over the goings on in the world of music and entertainment

Customer Reviews

My favorite podcast

Ever wonder what it would be like to shoot the breeze with a bunch of serious music experts? Curious about the water cooler conversations they're having at great music magazines? Remember the spirited, hilarious, detailed and obscure conversations about music and pop culture you used to have with your friends? Subscribe to this podcast and you'll experience all of the above and more. The WORD podcast is a companion to the excellent British music magazine of the same name. These are some seriously opinionated and absurdly informed people commenting on the role of art and creativity in modern life. I laugh and learn and argue whenever I listen. After listening to the first podcast, I got a subscription to the magazine and felt like I had at last found my tribe. The WORD podcast - At last, something to listen to.

The Essential Perspective For Guys Of A Certain Age

There are very few experiences which take me back to a simple boyhood pleasure the way this podcast by the editorial staff of The Word Magazine does. I await each weekly episode with the glee and anticipation that I awaited my Rover or Wizard comic dropping through my mailbox when I was a small boy growing up in Scotland. Endlessly fascinating and hilarious commentary on the state of all things rock, from guys who have been building their record collections for forty years. Pompous, opinionated and delightful. Funny as only a bunch of lads sitting around talking about the meaning of life can be.

Sanity, my own HORA, and the men I remember from that TV programme

Being stuck out in the wilderness of New Mexico, this podcast has become one of the few things that helps me stay connected with home. Since I heard Hepworth (the one that looks like McCartney remember?) talking about it on the Five Live Podcast about Podcasts, this regular intake of "british guys giggling" has become a keystone to my Englishman Abroad lifestyle. Back in the days of Whistle test Ellen and Hepworth seemed so old, but now I realise I'm really of the same generation. I even have my own "how a snake tattooed songstress and the wireless internet got me fired" HORA, but it's one for M'Learned Friends. This is an aquired taste, my advice? Aquire it. You wont regret it, though your significant others may...Thats my homily to "The Word".Will that do David?
