    Andy Zaltzman

    Andy Zaltzman

    A really special guest this week as The Bugle podfather himself Andy Zaltzman joins Tiff Stevenson to talk through his tiny revolutions. 
    Hear about Andy as a child growing up with a sculptor father, the school report that has stayed with him, his dreams of being a cricket journalist, studying Ancient Greek comedy and how that influenced his work, finding comedic inspiration in the brilliance and inventiveness of Monty Python and The Day Today, how seeing Rob Newman gave him courage to do political comedy, growing as a stand-up comedian via the Edinburgh Fringe, the conception and evolution of The Bugle and how it was his saviour, maintaining a sense of silliness and absurdity when addressing difficult subjects, how the lateral thinking of cryptic crosswords helps his writing process, and the gratitude he feels when living out his childhood dreams of working in cricket on Test Match Special.

Thoughtful discussions about how we become who we are

In this podcast, comedian Tiff Stevenson interviews people whose work had a great influence on her, asking them about their influences, the most memorable moments that shaped who they are.

I've really been digging it since I started listening last week, and I'm already going through the back catalog of episodes. I just listened to the episode with W. Kamau Bell and Nato Green, and it was one of the most thoughtful discussions of the intersection of comedy & politics I've ever heard.

Genuinely insightful stuff. Really made me think about things.
