Life’s A Beach sees Alan giving Judith Chalmers and Michael Palin a run for their money as he invites a famous guest each week to discuss their favourite places in the world. Bursting with anecdotes, laidback chat and laugh out loud travel tales - if this podcast was a suitcase you’d have to sit on it.

“My Life’s A Beach podcast is the escapism we ALL need right now. I sat down and chatted with some of my famous friends about everything travel. From caravanning in Rhyl to private jetting to the Maldives, my guests spill the beans on their holiday horrors and dream destinations. Let’s face it: we might not have the sun on our faces, but after a listen to this you’ll definitely have a smile” – ALAN CARR

IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE ALAN EIRE IS THE ONLY AIR TRAVEL SERVICE REQUIRED

The first time I ever saw THE FORCE OF GORGEOUS NATURE that is ALAN CARR, I knew whatever he does I’ll be tuning in to essential viewing / listening! Loved Chatty Man. “L’s.A. B.” is a weekly treat of hearing a fairly 50/50 split recollections of people’s holiday adventures I HAVE & HAVE NEVER HEARD of. Regardless, all are scheduled to take off. When the weather is settled for the ideal leisurely escape into someone’s shareable memories. Through the amiable charms of a man, that’s such a natural sweetheart at heart. The cue of guests yet awaiting their long cherished half hour or so, would be getting longer than the length of tarmac needs to be for a smooth take off. Thanks for the joy this gives every week Alan. 2 Future guests I’d love to suggest are both stand up comedians Stephen K. Amos & Larry Dean. Also Olly Alexander would surely love to do this too. How about Declan McKenna. He seems like a fun travel companion. Also love to hear about if younger passengers (like him) travel perspectives differ much to the average older travel weary roughly 30’s plus clientele experiences. Legendary Heavy metal singer Bruce Dickinson (a real pilot himself) would be a “beastly” hoot no less, as well. Every star in the galaxy is my rating, for as long as it stays in & on the air🫶🏻👌🏼.

The highlight of my week!

Such a joy!

Irritating

Interesting topics but I just wish Alan would reduce the amount of predictable, cliche jokes that dominate the conversation. He interrupts the guests and repeats himself most weeks.
