    Deep Dive On: The Piña Colada Song

    Yes, we know: there hasn't been an interview. The file is lost somewhere in the ether of Will's internet but that won't stop us from prattling on for further time about the wonders of the Escape/Piña Colada song for 45 minutes. In a fun, giggly, lovely little chitter chatter the two besties catch up and dissect the Piña Colada song...

Charm minus smarm

This is a lovely, uplifting podcast by two comedians with brilliant chemistry. Laura’s jolly chuckling at Will’s heartfelt grumbling just never gets boring. It’s refreshing to hear authentic audio that isn’t over-edited or over-produced too.

It is also shedding light on various bits of Britain and its history that I don’t know much about.

As a bonus, I’ve discovered other comedians and podcasts through the interactions with their guests!

Laura Lexx + William Duggan =best podcast ever!

I find this podcast funny to listen to and love to hear them laugh and tell jokes together.

Gentle, Funny and Thoroughly Enjoyable

There’s really nothing not to like about this. Laura and Will work brilliantly together, their humour is a delight and the whole thing is overwhelmingly positive which makes a nice change these days.

If you like the Mortimer & Whitehouse fishing show, this should be right up your street
