Brighten your week with the latest BBC Radio 4 comedy, introduced by Darren Harriott.

    Sarah Keyworth – Are You a Boy or a Girl?

    Sarah Keyworth – Are You a Boy or a Girl?

    In her first stand-up series for Radio 4, Edinburgh Best Newcomer Nominee, Chortle Best Newcomer and Winner of the Herald Angel Award, Sarah Keyworth explores her personal journey with gender fluidity.

    Join Sarah as she looks back on her own funny, ridiculous and bizarre experiences, as she attempts to shed light on why gender still remains such an important issue in the 21st Century.

    In the opening episode, Sarah looks at very early gender posing questions such as Why exactly is pink girly? Why does it matter if children's clothes are gender neutral? And do boys and girls really have different feet?

    The Likely Dads

    The Likely Dads

    To hear the rest of this series search for The Likely Dads on BBC Sounds.

    Former Blue Peter presenter Tim Vincent hosts a new comedy discussion series.

    Tim has undertaken many challenges throughout the course of his life - from painting Blackpool Tower and snow survival training with the army in Norway to flying in Tornado jets and running the New York marathon. But do any of them compare to his latest challenge - being the middle-aged father to two-year-old twin boys? And how does his experience of fatherhood so far compare to that of other dads?

    In this first episode, Tim and his fellow Likely Dads, Russell Kane and Mick Ferry, reflect on their expectations of fatherhood, from pregnancy through to their kids' teenage years and adulthood. Is it easier becoming a dad when you’re full of the vigour of youth or when you’re a bit older and, hopefully, wiser?

    In a regular feature, we ask the children of one of our Likely Dads a series of questions to determine which of them knows their children better - and vice versa.

    Our special guest Likely Dads joining Tim, Russell and Mick this week are actor Chris Bisson and comedian Che Burnley.

Sweet. Bitter-sweet.

Love the podcast, but yesterday when I wanted to play one or two funnies of found over the holiday time to a.griend, all but 4 episodes were gone - I hope this is a temporary thing. As I can't remember who the comedians were. I just assumed the list would also was be on iTunes? Perhaps it's on the BBC website. Let's hope.

Not a Fan

This podcast is not my cup of tea, unless you want to listen to people being idiotic on purpose.
