A daily satirical news fantasy. From the comedy team behind The Bugle.
Imagine a world just like this one where a man called Trump still runs the free world, where Brexit continues to rage on and climate change continues to simultaneously burn, melt and pour on things. Imagine this world also has podcasts and there is a satirical show that speaks truth to power, but this one is hosted by Alice Fraser, and it's released daily.

    We rejoin Alice Fraser in her orbiting space station as she makes contact with the survivors from the apocalypse - this month, Tiff Stevenson and James Nokise. 
    How is Tiff's bunker shaping up? Which people has she teamed up with in there? And does she have plentiful supplies of baby oil for that one guy in particular? 
    Meanwhile in New Zealand, just off New New Zealand, how has James reacted to the end of days? He does know it's the end of days, right?
    To understand how things got so messed up around here, tuck into the 366 days worth of episodes from 2020, followed by a special message from The Glitch.

The truest of fans ,

A show for real fans

This show is a breath of fresh air. I should know, I'm a true fan.

What a year!

Forget all that downbeat Trump and pandemic news ... Alice and her fabulous co-hosts have kept us all sane with news of the discovery of the under-London Picts, Hadrian’s Wall 2.0, the Octopus people of New New Zealand, wear-dragon pregnancies, the prison colony on Mars, Bob the sentient trash island and all the other important stuff! Enjoy while sipping on half a glass of water! Thanks!

Daily news with a twist

In this podcast, Alice Fraser works hard to bring you all the latest news. The twist? The news is instead from another dimension. This leads to a wildly inventive and incredibly funny narrative that is a satire of and yet starkly different to our current reality.

Due to a trans-dimentional email glitch starting this year, Alice has been receiving the latest news from a podcast hosted by her alternate-dimensional self. Every day, she brings you the latest news from the Wiggles government in Italy, the secret society living under London, the strange appearance of New New Zealand, and a very unlikely US Presidential campaign, among many other stories. Every day, she will chat about the top stories of the day with guests such as Andy Zaltzman, Tiff Stevenson, Nish Kumar, Laura Davis, and Wil Anderson, each living a life very different to the ones in our dimension. It doesn't take too long to pick up the story from the latest episode, but for the full experience, I recommend you start at episode 1 (they're only 15 minute apiece, so it won't take long to catch up).
