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 2

This podcast was much less of a struggle. Thank God. It’s a bit shorter though, by about 15 minutes. I like to think what we’ve lost in quantity, we’ve gained in hilarity. I like to think that. But I also like to think  one day I’ll be a millionaire and won’t have to edit free podcasts until 3am. SOME THINGS JUST DON’T HAPPEN!!!!!

Some things that do happen include the arrival of new guest host, Jack De’Ath. He replaces Jonathan May-Bowles who was hit by a sugar truck on its way to the biggest cup of tea in the world. Jack’s English. We’re multicultural.

Toby

It's Toby!

We were lucky enough to see sketch group Toby on a whim at Cabaret Voltaire (it’s near the Cowgate, and the show starts at 3.45pm) and were then even more lucky to have a wee chat with the sibling double-act on some patio chairs. It was fun. We got to find out the full horror of their tortured souls. It’s where the humour comes from.

Their show is also reviewed, as well as those aspects of Edinburgh Festival that make it great. Well two of us bother. I was tired.

Anyway…

2010: Episode 1

Is here. It was a struggle, but it’s up and you can now download and enjoy.

We’re joined by special guest, Jonathan May-Bowles, who performed a free show last year and offered his (abusive) insights into 2010’s efforts. He swears, be warned. Follow him on Twitter. He’s @jonniemarbles and is moderately funny.

We also talk to Andrew Collins in a pub. He was sweaty but charming. Like a real man should be after dancing on stage. Go see his show. It’s at Bannerman’s in the Cowgate at 12.30pm. And is brilliant, and you can hear what we thought on the podcast. Though Jonathan whines on a bit. The idiot.

Tom, Andrew, David

Jon has even more to say about The Lost Letters of Cathy G but is it good or bad? I’ll give you a clue, it’s not good.

The alternative free fringe experiences are also discussed – those little moments in the street and with your friends that make it all worthwhile. And hot leafleters too of course.

Enjoy!
