A daily satirical news fantasy. From the comedy team behind The Bugle.


Imagine a world just like this one where a man called Trump still runs the free world, where Brexit continues to rage on and climate change continues to simultaneously burn, melt and pour on things. Imagine this world also has podcasts and there is a satirical show that speaks truth to power, but this one is hosted by Alice Fraser, and it's released daily.

The final word on this most final of worlds

It took a few episodes to find its legs (and it might take you a few episodes to get into the swing) but this has turned into one of my favourite podcasts. The clever repetition and call backs, the ‘subtle’ references to the Bugle, the topsy turvey world, and of course the wonderfully funny host Alice, the talented producer Christopher (good luck to you), and incredible guest hosts (Bugle regulars and so much more). A daily topical podcast like this must be incredibly hard work - and yet it’s consistently clever and funny.

Daily Bugle! Happy days!

Daily doses of Bugle silliness lead by Alice Fraser. It doesn't get much better than this!

Awkward

I love Alive Fraser and think she’s absolutely hilarious but sadly this podcast misses the mark by a country mile. Zaltsmans attempt at awkward humour is just embarrassing and this short podcast is loaded with ads.
