I couldn't get into TAZ but I was starting mid show maybe I should go back to the start. If you like that you should definitely try My Brother, My Brother and Me. It's the same brothers doing a comedy advice podcast using questions taken off random yahoo answers. Eh that description doesn't do it justice, it's great improv is all you need to know.

James O’Brien has a Podcast out where he interviews various people.

I have only listened to one, Bill Browder, but strawberry float me it is fantastic. It’s basically an account of how Browder used to invest in Russia and how Putin and the oligarchs have stolen everything. After listening, you can really understand just how and why Putin is managing to distort the entire Western world at the moment.

Highly recommended!

Isn't Putin allegedly the richest man in the word "off the books"? Like worth $200bn or something ridiculous like that. What a baller.

Yeah that's basically what is discussed in that interview. Browder thought that when he became President, Putin was going to be more of a nationalist that would try and fix Russia. In the end he basically stole everything and killed anybody that got in his way.

I knew Putin was dodgy, but strawberry float me he goes well beyond dodgy and is pretty much in Bond villain territory.

More fool you, tbh.

Just finished their first campaign. I'm not going to lie, I cried.* At work. It was embarrassing.

It's definitely one of the best podcasts I've ever listened to, one I found almost impossible not to binge. It was genuinely fascinating to see 4 novices slowly merge into these master players who created an utterly unique campaign from nothing. The narrative was fun, the set pieces dramatic but it's the characters, both of the McElroy's and their creations, that carry it and turn it from what could have been a rote Actual Play podcast into a inventive, emotional, hilarious and touching saga.

strawberry floating brill.

How's everyone else getting on with it?



*Well, teared up.

I'm up to Episode 11: Murder on the Rockport Limted - Chapter Two.

Haven't listened to one for about a week though, took a break as I'd binged pretty heavily on it for a while.
