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.

    Apocalypse HAGOW 🚰 - Season 2

    Apocalypse HAGOW 🚰 - Season 2

    As Alice Fraser surveys the smouldering ashes of the apocalypse from her space station, she connects with tech bajillionaire Josh Gondelman and former child star Gareth Reynolds to see how they are adapting to the post-apocalyptic landscape. 


    What has happened with Josh's fortune? Does money even exist any more? How has Gareth managed to survive and thrive in the new world? How valuable a commodity is half a glass of water? And - arguably most importantly - is D'Ancey LaGuarde still managing to write romance novels?


    To understand how we got to this point, set aside a little time and tuck into the 366 days worth of episodes from 2020, and a special message from The Glitch.

    366 Judgement Day news 🤯

    366 Judgement Day news 🤯

    As the dragonchild circles overhead, scorching the lands - avoiding the cricket grounds of course - celebrity celebrity Andrew Zaltzman joins Alice Fraser to reflect on how lucky we are to live through, or at least up until, an apocalypse. 


    Hear what happened when Andrew had now-awoken sleeper King Arthur onto his chat show, where he told him what he makes of modern-day England, including the set-up at Parliament and quantity of knights these days. Also, can we look forward to an emergence of some new sports from the chaos of an apocalypse? 


    Once you've listened to this episode, why not go back to Jan 1st and relive 2020 all over again.

    365 On The Run news 🏃🏻‍♂️

    365 On The Run news 🏃🏻‍♂️

    As the imminent apocalypse looms large, Alice Fraser caught a moment with on-the-run unsuccessful children's party Neil Gaiman impersonator and successful Neil Gaiman ghostwriter Neil Gaiman after he escaped the suspiciously over-friendly winter solstice celebrations on Summerisle, in the independent biodome formerly known as Scotland. 


    Neil first aired his curiosity in the local tradition in episode 336 (Scotland news), before returning to the show in episode 342 having witnessed at close quarters the most unexpected conception at the weredragon v Welsh dragon thunderdome.

    364 Glitch Negotiations news 🌌

    As the year 2020 hurtles to a close, the negotiations with the space-time continuum glitch that delivers this podcast to at least one other dimension have reached a critical point. Comandante Nato Green, union organiser and negotiation expert, tells us what to expect. 


    If you're with us at this stage, there's every chance you know what Nato is about. If you missed any episodes over the holiday period though, do pop back and catch up as things have been heating up.

    363 Octopus news 🐙

    As the octopus people of New New Zealand emerge from the seas, celebrity celebrity Andrew Zaltzman ponders the future relationship between humans and cephalopods. What happens with their voting rights when in international waters, or in the contested fishing seas surrounding the UK? Are they communists? And is the whole octopus people story just a hoax anyway?


    If you enjoyed Andrew today, then press play any episode of 2020 at random and there's a 1 in 6 chance you'll hit on another of his appearances.

I hope the new monthly version still keeps all of the crazy nonsense like D'ancy and HAGOW and all the stupid letters.
