The Oddcast!

 

Come on tour with the cast of this summers No.1 Shakespeare production of the steampunk rock opera Macbeth and the musical extravaganza Mods and Rockers Romeo & Juliet!

This weekly comedy podcast includes chat with the cast, audience interviews, shout-outs and announcements, competitions, and a brand new advice section where listeners get the chance to tell us some of their oddest situations and we give advice with an oddsocks twist.

This podcast is broadcast on the road, sometimes in the middle of a field (Most of the shows are outdoors) and sometimes in the pub. So join the cast on the road as they travel the length and breadth of the UK. If they're in your town, come and say hi!

We couldn't help but release this special episode which contains all 3 episodes of 'Chipmunk and the Old Man', previously featured in 'The Oddcast'!

Now you can listen to all 3 episodes at once and follow the Old man and the Chipmunk as they travel through space and time...

No cuts, no scripts and no idea what we're doing. With only random household objects around us to make sfx, Chipmunk and the Old Man has become an instant classic amongst chipmunks.

"I love this!" - Nobody, ever.

"I can't wait for the movie to come out" - Chipmunk

"Where's my cut?" - Old Man

Check out all 16 episodes of 'The Oddcast' to hear where this life-changing mini series originated!

We are so grounded. This week's episode is so late, it's almost episode 11!

We had to record over a few days as the weather was against us all week! Studio of the week was mainly in a very noisy tour 'Landy'. We discuss what happens when things go against us either on tour or in the show, Becky tries to guess the Boat song and plays a tune with a zip.

We announce this week's winner and give you a heads up to a very exciting (And potentially very sleepy!) Episode 11!

We also get another surprise visit from last week's seagulls who sound suspiciously like a certain Star Wars villain...

Studio of the week is a row boat! Don't worry, we're not at sea, we're not even on water! Recorded at Kirkleatham Museum in Redcar, we talk about our lovely audiences, read out another listener email and get attacked by some very suspicious seaguls.

The winner of this weeks signed programme is announced and Gavin plays a song on the side of the boat!
