Alice Fraser, Cal Wilson and Sami Shah attempt to make flowers of joy from the manure of social media, making comedy from the maddest, baddest moments in Internet interaction.
Dog haters, dads on Twitter and a troll from two thousand years ago
In the last episode of this series, Alice's Dad is on social media, Cal checks out anti-dog forums and Sami tells us about Diogenes, an ancient Greek who trolled the philosopher Plato.
Rough trade, lovebirds and we're all going to die
Cal brings a gem about a sick pet, Sami talks about bartering on Facebook and Alice reminds us of the inescapable clutch of death.
Professional trollers, hot gluing & when compliments go wrong
Alice annoys a fan, Sami details how a newspaper trolled him and Cal is horrified by a whole new definition of hot gluing.
Mumsnet, breastfeeding and Llama related putdowns
Alice, Cal and Sami broach the fascinating world of Mumsnet. Cue name calling, arguments and the invention of something called a penis beaker.
Little monsters, rough crowds & the satanic media
Alice, Cal and Sami talk about crossing Lady Gaga fans, why pigs are a clean animal and not wanting to be a downer (but actually being a total downer)
Brony fiancees, cuss words and disgruntled Christians
Alice, Cal and Sami talk about the comedy swearing, Easter errors and My Little Pony obsessives.
Hope they have a second season.
Love this podcast and love Tea with Alice. Best Bugle host EVER!
Not super interesting, honestly.
The hosts are funny enough and most of the rabbit-hole/plug-hole segments are amusing, but I was hoping going into this show that the hosts would be engaging some of the bigger trolls out there or doing some hornets’-nest-kicking by diving into the more toxic corners of the internet (4chan, Breitbart, etc). Instead, it’s mostly recounting random anecdotes of trolling that have occurred with them, and then talking about their replies and criticizing trolls’ grammar. If the show hosts read this: go bigger! Admittedly at the risk of enduring larger and more disturbing bouts of trolling as a result, the show’s interest factor would go up dramatically.
