Why Is Your Bottom So Dirty?

Don't let the name put you off, this very funny, and more than  a little bit random, podcast returns after a four-month hiatus.  Luke McQueen, and Lou Sanders play Dr Benjamin Jones and Claire Cares discussing matters medical. Sort of. Their first patient is robotics industry professional Ken Himomito (or a man who 'makes fake people out of metal'), played by Phil Wang. Listen here

Brian and Roger

Not sure how this passed us by, but the first series of this sitcom-style podcast has just come to an end. Created by Toast Of London star Harry Peacock and Dan Skinner, the man behind Angelos Epithemiou, Brian and Roger revolves around two divorced men who meet at a support group, as both are finding their new single life especially difficult.

In this Netflix special, John Leguizamo takes on the role of a professor attempting to find a Latino hero for his son – which allows him to offer a sharp commentary on the history of the region. The show had a successful Broadway run last year  and is now on Netflix here.

And here is a trailer:
