If you could bottle the Fringe this would be it!.

I love this podcast. Its funny, slick and gives you a real sense of 'What's On' at the Pleasance without actually being there. I love the girl who links it all together, such a cute voice! and the interviews are spontaneous and original, which is what the Fringe is all about. Well done to whoever makes this. Love it!
