I don’t listen to many podcasts at all, but there is one that I’m so obsessed with that I sometimes can’t sleep without listening to an episode. The Peacock and Gamble podcast is hosted by comedians Ray Peacock and Ed Gamble, it’s about nothing in particular, it sometimes has regular sections (if that’s possible), it’s edited down to half an hour and it’s released every week for free.
It’s probably best to start from somewhere near the first episode, and by the time you’ve listened to a few and made friends with Ray and Ed — which is very easy — it all makes sense. Unlike a lot of shows in this vein, it comes across as completely uncontrived. It’s just two naturally funny people who have great chemistry together, enjoying and exploiting the complete freedom the format gives them.
Peacock and Gamble’s main website is here, and the podcast’s available from Chortle or iTunes. They’re currently doing a live show at the Edinburgh fringe, which is called ‘Peacock and Gamble’s Emergency Broadcast’.
