Description

A daily satirical news fantasy. From the comedy team behind The Bugle.


Imagine a world just like this one where a man called Trump still runs the free world, where Brexit continues to rage on and climate change continues to simultaneously burn, melt and pour on things. Imagine this world also has podcasts and there is a satirical show that speaks truth to power, but this one is hosted by Alice Fraser, and it's released daily.

As the dragonchild circles overhead, scorching the lands - avoiding the cricket grounds of course - celebrity celebrity Andrew Zaltzman joins Alice Fraser to reflect on how lucky we are to live through, or at least up until, an apocalypse.  Hear what happened when Andrew had now-awoken sleeper King Arthur onto his chat show, where he told him what he makes of modern-day England, including the set-up at Parliament and quantity of knights these days. Also, can we look forward to an emergence of some new sports from the chaos of an apocalypse?  Once you've listened to this episode, why not go back to Jan 1st and relive 2020 all over again.

As the imminent apocalypse looms large, Alice Fraser caught a moment with on-the-run unsuccessful children's party Neil Gaiman impersonator and successful Neil Gaiman ghostwriter Neil Gaiman after he escaped the suspiciously over-friendly winter solstice celebrations on Summerisle, in the independent biodome formerly known as Scotland.  Neil first aired his curiosity in the local tradition in episode 336 (Scotland news), before returning to the show in episode 342 having witnessed at close quarters the most unexpected conception at the weredragon v Welsh dragon thunderdome.

As the year 2020 hurtles to a close, the negotiations with the space-time continuum glitch that delivers this podcast to at least one other dimension have reached a critical point. Comandante Nato Green, union organiser and negotiation expert, tells us what to expect.  If you're with us at this stage, there's every chance you know what Nato is about. If you missed any episodes over the holiday period though, do pop back and catch up as things have been heating up.

As the octopus people of New New Zealand emerge from the seas, celebrity celebrity Andrew Zaltzman ponders the future relationship between humans and cephalopods. What happens with their voting rights when in international waters, or in the contested fishing seas surrounding the UK? Are they communists? And is the whole octopus people story just a hoax anyway? If you enjoyed Andrew today, then press play any episode of 2020 at random and there's a 1 in 6 chance you'll hit on another of his appearances.

It's always nice to get a surprise present on Boxing Day, right? We give you a veritable selection box of festive cheer! Eat too much yesterday? Then quench your thirst with Alice Fraser singing some delightful half-a-glass-of-water Christmas carol advertisements, plus hear some little bonus stocking fillers, silly noises and reminders of the glorious year of The Last Post.   'The Pipes of a damn Angel' - The American ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is a Bugle Podcasts production. 📯 This episode was produced by Ped Hunter and Chris Skinner.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Wait, what happened there? Are we back? Is this the apocalypse?  In part two of the first-ever live The Last Post - recorded in front of an audience of loyal Posters - Alice Fraser was joined by flapjack lumberjack Alison Spittle, tech bajillionaire Josh Gondelman, and time scientist Matt Kirshen. As dragons circle the land, octopus people emerge from the seas, and sleepers from history return in our time of greatest need, our guests try to steady themselves long enough to report on the end of days.  If you missed part one, jump back and listen to episode 357 and this one will probably make even less sense.

With the Morgan-Johnson human/weredragon offspring circling overhead, and the Welsh dragon potentially seeking a rematch, who are the socialist revolutionaries siding with?  Nato Green, Leader of the People's Army of the People United, joins Alice Fraser to draw his battle lines in the scorched lands of Britain.  If none of this makes any sense, or even if it actually does, then it's well worth (re)listening to every episode from Neil Gaiman's Dragon news (ep 342) onwards to try and piece together just what has gone on these past two weeks.

King Arthur has arriven! Arriven? Arriven. John-Luke Roberts and Alice Fraser cross swords on the show today, as the recently-rediscovered royal covered surprise night-time knighting and, more significantly, the awakening of King Arthur, who has returned in our hour of greatest need.  To hear more of the crazy goings-on of the past couple of weeks, you'd do well to (re)listen to every episode from 342 (Dragon news) onwards as things have gotten kinda wild.

Alice Fraser is joined by flapjack lumberjack Alison Spittle, tech bajillionaire Josh Gondelman, time scientist Matt Kirshen, plus a rare appearance from the increasingly-resentful glitch in the space-time continuum! This is part one of the live video show recorded on 20th December (ish). Together they discussed some huge events - the birth of the Piers Morgan and Boris Johnson weredragon/human crossbreed child, sleepers awakening across the world, and the glitch getting glitchy.  Stay tuned for Part 2 on Friday 25th December - we're pretty sure there's not much else happening on that day.
