40 episodes

A weekly, ramshackle monologue from a man slowly unravelling before your very ears, talking about subjects such as television, music, running, sobriety, parenting, relationships and all the stuff that the average middle-aged man worries about like death, money and back hair. There may also be some amazingly salacious tales about celebrities, maybe.
Jamie is a broadcaster, journalist and TV presenter with varying underwhelming levels of success in each of those fields.
He has presented spin-off TV shows about Big Brother, Games of Thrones, Westworld for channels like Sky Atlantic and, in one memorable evening - Ghost hunting. He hosts radios shows on both Virgin Radio and TalkRadio in the UK and is the creator of the 'Previously, On...' podcast series, which discusses the best TV shows in the world.
He is a film critic and has written for The Sunday Times, The Sun and NME among others - cutting his teeth in journalism when he created the infamous celebrity website Holy Moly (ask your older brother or sister).
The name Daft Doris is one he gave to his Grandmother - who he used to phone every Saturday morning without fail to shoot the breeze. She's no longer with us and wanted to see if a podcast would fill that void.
Ask Jamie a question, request a topic, heap praise or vent your spleen by either tweeting him at www.twitter.com/jamieeast or emailing podcast@daftdoris.com

    Two Thousand and bloody Twenty Two. Somehow.
    I'm on a dog walk, I'm out of breath - and somewhere in the distance in a man sat on a log, meditating by a lone Christmas tree in a Surrey valley. No-one knows why.
    I hope you're doing OK. Are you?
