2010: Episode 5

BOO HOO HOO HOO HOO!!! Yes people, that is you. Those are the words you are saying right now. Whilst wet with tears and empty of hope. For it is our final podcast of the Edinburgh Festival 2010. Tom is away back to London and David has a job. And we’re sick of it all.

Horndog brass band

Our final 35 minutes(ish) are our best though, and not just because we lack both Jonathan May-Bowles and Jack De’Ath. We do our first music review – the Horndog brass band – who play the Speigel Gardens one last time on Monday Aug 23 so head down.

The last review of 2010 is a very special one however, as we opine on a hot new up-and-comer by the name of Thomas Meek. Is he blessed? We’ll find out!

2010: Episode 4

Hallo all!  Welcome to another edition of the Free Ed Podcast which is going from strength to muscular dystrophia. In terms of facts in any case. We call our main review Daniel Tighe instead of his correct moniker Dylan Tighe. It’s also the Trans-Mongolian Express not the Trans-Siberian Express. Natch. We’re idiots. We apologise. It is still our most epic, bombastic review yet though, so prepare yourself for astonishing opinions.

Elsewhere. we discuss the very middle-class sketch group In The Meantime who play Cabaret Voltaire. Our opinions on this are more mild.

We also review the smart narrative driven motivational speaker spoof Success: A Success Story by Kieran and the Two Joes. Our opinions are recorded whilst quite hungover and tired. We are so sorry. It’s still our best show yet though. Enjoy.

2010: Episode 3

An annoying internet has filled me with rage!!! Luckily, there’s an excellent podcast to listen to to calm me down.

It contains the usual hilarious (Really? – Ed) nattering, with Jonathan May-Bowles back in the special guest seat. It has moulded to his buttocks for a riveting half hour.

Sh!t Theatre

Marvel as we talk to brilliant female music/comedy/sketch duo Sh!t Theatre who thrizzle us with tales of political satire and bears. Yes, I said bears. For they are the second comedy duo we have spoken to involving a beautiful woman dressing up as a bear. It must be this year’s ‘thing’. Much like last year’s thing was ‘porn magic’. I miss 2009.

Talking of magic, we also review Phil Knoxville. Who is not Johnny Knoxville. Is this a good thing? Find out by LISTENING!

We are now on Ian Apple’s popular iTunes store. Don’t worry, we’re still free and you can listen to us if you’re normal and have a PC. That means ‘personal computer’. You can say to people you don’t want to talk about such a computer as it is ‘personal’.  I advise you to do so.
