I’m a big podcast listener on my way to and from work so am always on the lookout for some decent comedy content. For this purpose, I subscribed to the Radio 4 Comedy of the Week podcast which provides samples every now and then.
Most of them are not in the style I can enjoy listening to – programs that sound like the Archers with a humorous plot just don’t do it for me.
This week, though, the featured program was The Secret World which I hadn’t heard about before, despite it now being into its 3rd series.
Episode 1 had lovely impressions of professor Brian Cox and others, especially Alan Bennett contacting the customer services department of a toaster manufacturer because he wasn’t completely happy. And there was even educational content as they inserted the fact that Alpha Centauri is a star system and not, as I’d thought, an individual solar body. Laughs and learning – a magic combo.
