David Baddiel and his mate Tim Hincks talk all things David Bowie. They spin out from there to anything and everything that’s funny, quizzical, and vaguely related to Bowie, or music, or their own mid-life crises. It’s a bit niche: Absolute Beginners won’t get it. You see? The ones who got that reference are smiling smugly. And others are thinking: I shan’t listen to that then.

One of the best podcasts

This podcast is one of the best around. Tim and David’s anecdotes are hilarious, especially the squirrel Nutkins one. Bowie fans will appreciate the deep dive into his music and if you’re not a Bowie fan you can still enjoy the witty and hilarious banter. It brightens up my work day.

I am 21 and I absolutely love this podcast. Both hosts are very funny and incredibly informed on all things Bowie, especially Tom Hinks who I find a calmer foil to Baddiel’s slightly shouty comic style. I do love Baddiel, I should say. Being an English student I really enjoyed the lyrical analysis, the discussions of what they felt Bowie meant to do with his words, art and style or whether he even had intentions. It really helps that Baddiel and Hinks are old enough to have lived in the golden era of Bowie’s music as they can lend a personal and contextual perspective. These two mega-fans have such interesting lives that it’s enjoyable when they deviate from the Bowie-analysis and go into anecdotes and their experience with music.
I applaud their scrutiny of Bowie, jesting at some of the naffer lyrics (glass spider) and characters. Sycophantic fans are annoying and do not focus on the human behind the face paint. It takes wisdom to acknowledge and embrace the imperfection in a perfect artist like Bowie.
They say several times how unlikely it is that the podcast receives a young audience. So even if I am the only one, I want to say that podcast like these really help to keep legendary music alive for younger generations.
