Favourite Podcasts - 13 - Frank Skinner

One minute it's discussion about a football ground, the next it's Proust, then talking about Greggs the baker, then the Archbishop of Canterbury, from fashion, to Peter the Wild...

What the average Absolute radio listener makes of these ramblings I do not know, but it makes for hilarious listening, condensed down into a Sunday podcast and a few extra bits on Wednesdays.

Frank Skinner is joined by the slightly snobby, but likable Emily Dean, and down to earth comedian Alun Cochrane. The podcast has no structure at all, other than being a radio show with an introduction and a loose text-in subject.

There are a few running gags, but the real humour comes from Franks extraordinary quick wit and surreal anecdotes and musings. I was never really a massive fan of Frank in the 90's and early 00's. but either he has changed, or my humour has changed!

This is a must download podcast for me, and always cheers me up on the bus to work on Monday mornings.

Find Franks podcast here on the Absolute Radio website.
