Customer Reviews

One craigrdean ,

250 episodes and still going strong

I’ve listened to Local Anaesthetic since near the beginning and still smile when I see a new episode notification pop up. Although they are are not as frequent as they once were the lads deserve credit for making such a consistently amusing podcast. Highly recommended.

‘Local news for non-local people’

Not sure why it’s taken me this long to write a review. This podcast has got me through long bus journeys over the years. Alex and Rob explore the strange entity that is British local news. There comedic influences are worn on their sleeves, always smile when a Partridge or League of Gentleman reference pops up. A brilliant double act. Listen to any episode in the library and you’ll be hooked.

Genuine moments of comedy

Alex and Rob do a fab job of exploring the most bizarre and ridiculous news reports. These two are great and I find myself genuinely laughing out loud.

Keep up the great work :)
