Maybe we’ll hear some more about the pedestrianisation of Norwich city centre.
On the back of the glorious ‘This Time with Alan Partridge’ on the BBC last year, Steve Coogan’s famous character is giving a new platform a crack. That’s right, Partridge is jumping on the podcast bandwagon, coming live from his garden shed. ‘From the Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast’ will see Alan trying to connect with a younger audience on his new platform.
Will we hear his thoughts on the best Beatles album? Whether he likes wine? Or maybe he’ll get worked up about James Bond, again? This is what he had to say about his new project:
“If David Dimbleby has one, then of course I needed to make one. All national treasures have a podcast,” said Alan Partridge. “With this series, I want to give my fans an intimate view of who I really am. You may think you know me, but trust me, you have no idea what goes on behind closed doors at my podcast innovation studio.
“Besides, I’m bored of OFCOM and its regulations and so it’s time for the UK to hear what a real award-winning podcast is like. Tune in or you’re going to be missing out on the best thing you’ll hear since I was last on radio.”
The first episode of ‘From the Oasthouse’ is now available for free on Amazon Alexa, running from June 6-12. The entire series will air on Audible from September 3.
Steve Coogan also confirmed that ‘This Time’ will return for a second series, although a date has not yet been confirmed.
