Episode 509. ‘The Bugle’ Podcast

Published by austin on

25_andy_zaltmanThe definitive “Audio Newspaper for a Visual World™,” The Bugle Podcast is one of the seminal achievements in the annals of journalism and political satire. Comedian Andy Zaltzman (right) talks about The Bugle’s creation and his long-time partnership with co-creator John Oliver, how they put it together it on a weekly basis, and what form it might take in the future. Featuring the value of deadlines, a double-standard when it comes to puns, the art of stand-up, the pull of performance, the influence of ancient Greek comedy, the wonder of cricket, and satire’s ability to provide irony and perspective in troubled times. (Length 24:24)
