Good interviews but.......

Where's Miles Jupp? he made last years Fringe podcast! This is funny at times but a bit too serious and bland.

Good Giggle Great Cause

Subscribe to both the podcast and Amnesty. Go on you know you should. I dare you ... go on you know you want to.

Once again an excellent series. It's a shame the festival doesn't go on all year so we can have a weekly round up like these for the full 52/365.

Well done Amnesty and all you funny folk. Thanks for the giggles. BTW where is that Kebab Shop?

Great feeling of Edinburgh

This is a bit different from last year's effort, but it gives a lovely feel of the fringe - and it's got great comedy clips on it too!
