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.

    336 Scotland news 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    A very exciting guest on the show today as Neil Gaiman - the unsuccessful children's party Neil Gaiman impersonator and successful ghostwriter for Neil Gaiman - spoke to Alice from the newly-independent biodome formerly known as Scotland. 


    He had news of everything from bioengineered unicorns, to the resurgence of the pict community in Scotland, to some very friendly-seeming locals showing him lots of things made of wicker, man.


    Neil will be (and was) back for a second appearance on the show on Monday Dec 7th!
