Glad to find a way to listen to this abroad. My little touch of home.

Indispensable listening for Archers fans

I’ve been listening to The Archers for about 10 years and Dumteedum pretty much since it started. Roifield and Lucy provide knowledgeable, humorous, socially insightful and personal commentary on our favorite “contemporary drama in a rural setting.” They have built an engaged community of listeners and contributors to the podcast. Folks call in with commentary and plot predictions not just from the UK, but the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, Singapore, and all corners of the world. Listeners are so engaged they have meetups all around the world and support each other during times of trouble. As a year round traveler, I appreciate the “around the dinner table” dynamic of the Dumteedum podcast which makes me feel like I’m spending time with people I know and care about. This podcast is a “must listen to” for Archers fans wherever you are in the world.

I grew up listening to the Archers in the 1960s while my mum did the ironing. Now I’m living is California and still able to feel like I’m home in Cardiff. Trivia Note: I once dated a girl in the 80s whose family lived next door to the agricultural story editor!
