    Henry's 21st birthday mystery

    Henry's 21st birthday mystery

    Happy New Year! Just when you thought it was over for us until Summer 2021, it wasn't... as Bake Off was back with two special episodes over Christmas and New Year. Josh, Howard and Jane couldn't let the episodes pass without comment, so got together to reflect on the second special episode which aired in the UK on Sunday 3rd January 2021.
    It saw a return to the tent for Helena, Rahul, Henry and Nancy and despite none of the quad being strangers to the tent, nerves were clearly there as they sought to impress once more making crumble, Bao buns and a showstopper to celebrate their 21st birthdays. You'll hear what the trio thought about the episode and a bizarre anecdote from Howard about Rahul that we can't quite believe we've never heard before.
    We are continuing to have great fun hosting online baking classes for fans from all around the world and more classes go on sale every week. Whether you'd like to learn how to make a Craquelin with Dan, Charlotte Royal with Ian or Pork Pie with Howard, you can check out our latest online baking classes on our website. Classes start at 5pm or 8pm UK time on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate bakers from around the world, in particular our many friends from the USA. The classes are great fun and if you use the code PODCAST at checkout you'll get 10% off, whilst gift vouchers and bundle packs are also available.

Awesome!

Well done! This podcast is great for reliving the greatest reality show ever with some expert hosts. They have good insights. They are kind and not petty. They concentrate on the bakes, the bakers and the show. It is very well hosted and skillfully led by Josh who adeptly leads the conversation. It is so nice to hear from actual former bake off contestants and having their insights into the show and especially the baking. Thank you!

Love this podcast...but not the new host

I’ve really enjoyed this podcast as a post-GBBO treat the next day, but the new host just doesn’t have the chemistry with Howard and Jane. It feels more like a roundtable - ‘Jane, how do you feel about X’ ‘Howard, how do you feel about X’ - than a nicely flowing podcast. Bring back Josh!

Great podcast

Greetings from Glenside USA. I really enjoy this podcast. Josh is a fine host and I appreciate the insightful observations and perspectives from Jane, Howard, and Dan. Very much looking forward to season 12!
