Absolutely wonderful

I only recently heard about Wooden Overcoats and listened to all three seasons in a week. So funny, such clever stories and characters, the perfect podcast for escaping to a different world for a while. I am crossing my fingers for a fourth season!

The best thing radio 4 never commissioned

Oh so funny
Oh so dry
And oh so human
Worth all of your time.

Made me snort-laugh. Unattractively. A lot.

I don’t know if binge-listening is a thing, but if it is, that’s what I did with Wooden Overcoats - all three seasons in under five days. Absolutely loved it, perfect dry humour. I live in hope of a fourth season.
