    The Standby Butler

    The Standby Butler

    Richard is on holiday this week so joins Cat and Charles on location from Scotland. But has the break from being a National Trinket afforded him extra time to investigate his specialist subject? Can he get one over on his fellow Rabbit Holers and persuade the Disembodied Voice to award him the victory?

Mr Orpheus ,

Perfect asylum for Saturday Live refugees

Brilliant! Love the Reverend Richard Coles.

Kate in Bath ,

Deserves 10 stars!

I love this Podcast. Three bright, cheerful, intelligent people discussing crazy and diverse subjects. Fabulous!
So many (too many) Podcasts are painfully, embarrassingly, boring.
This Podcast is riveting. Please don’t change a thing and please, please continue!

An interesting and fun Podcast

I recently found Rabbit Hole Detectives having read Charles Spencer’s article in the Daily Telegraph. I love the episodes which are interesting and enjoyable. The panel are enthusiastic about their subjects and deliver the information in a fun way.
