My name is Aid. I used to do Standup. Then I had two kids. The End.

Between parenthood and the pandemic, I'm finding pretty much the only way to have a social interaction with people is to literally *book in a conversation with them* (and market it as a podcast).

Every guest is going to be real upset when they realise I'm not even recording them, i'm just incredibly lonely.

A future leading Radio Presenter

This guy will be successful both as a radio host or comedy show star (when lefty comedians are allowed back)

Daviemoo ,

Brilliant podcast all around

Aid hits the right mix of funny, informed and sweary. That autocorrected to sweaty which is also true but not as relevant. Aid has some fantastic guests and is also a brilliant host, plus his solo rants always hit the right note.

Utterly Brilliant!

Discovered Aid and the podcast recently as I am a huge fan of Daviemoo, I Came to listen to his episode and have stayed because it’s all just so good. 10/10 keep up the good work 👏🏻
