Description

British comedian Adam Buxton talks with interesting people. The rambly conversations are sometimes funny, sometimes more serious with funny bits. Adam records the intros and outros for most episodes while walking with his dog friend Rosie in the East Anglian countryside where he lives with his wife and three children.


Adam has appeared in films such as ‘Hot Fuzz’, ‘Stardust’ and ‘Son Of Rambow’ as well as a variety of TV shows in the UK. Since 2007 he has hosted ‘BUG’, a live show that combines music videos and comedy that became a TV series on Sky Atlantic in 2012. From time to time he also does live shows featuring just his own material. Along with lifelong friend Joe Cornish he also is one half of award winning TV, radio and podcast duo Adam & Joe who have worked together since 1995.


You can find many of the insanely catchy jingles Adam makes for the podcast as well as amazing bonus material, beautiful merchandise and a selection of his incredibly funny and brilliant YouTube videos on the free Adam Buxton app.


Adam is writing this himself using the third person.

Adam talks with Sara Pascoe and Richard Ayoade, (two British comedians who have also read and written, more than one book) about J.D. Salinger's classic 1951 novel 'The Catcher in the Rye'.SYNOPSIS: The story begins with 17 year old Holden Caulfield recuperating following a breakdown. The rest of the book is an account from Holden's point of view, of the events that lead to that breakdown, which took place the previous Winter in the days following his expulsion from Pencey Prep, a private school. Holden's roommate is a meathead called Stradlater who has sexy plans for Jean Gallagher, a childhood friend of Holdens who he feels protective of. A a fight ensues after which Holden spends two days killing time in New York before he has to face his parents and inform them of his expulsion. We learn that things have been difficult for Holden since the death of his younger brother Allie when Holden was 13. From time to time Holden dwells on the memory of Allie's old baseball glove on which his little brother had written poems to read during boring baseball games. Now Holden entertains hopes of moving in with his older brother DB, a WWII vet who has become a successful screenwriter in Hollywood. During his visit to New York, a lonely Holden visits a jazz club and spends much of his remaining cash buying drinks for three older women, after which he arranges an abortive liaison with Sunny, a teenage prostitute and falls foul of her thuggish pimp Maurice. Later Holden arranges a meeting with an old girlfriend, Sally Hayes, and is briefly looked after by a well meaning teacher Mr Antolini. But Mr Antolini's affections are interpreted as predatory by Holden who ends up, distraught and emotional, creeping into his parents house to see the only person in the world he feels he can really talk to - his little sister Phoebe.Thanks to Anneka Myson for additional editing and Seamus Murphy-Mitchel for production support on this episode.RELATED LINKS'SALINGER' (2013 DOCUMENTARY FEATURE)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JSFr7YdKLE'J.D.

mike palmer loool dude PewDiePie did not invent the book club. If you have any questions, address them to your local librarian -- they'll be more than happy to introduce you to some books and probably some tea too. There are also some online book clubs and some awesome podcasts from Radio 4 which date back to when PewDiePie was reading Mister Men books

Happy 100th dear Mr Buxton! Dude, that episode really lightened my day, really felt like I was part of the conversation, maybe as a fly on the wall?! or maybe locked in a cupboard near by?! 🤔 I have been letting my listenership lax a bit lately, you see I'm a van-dwelling traveler and only found you on a trip through Spain and North Africa this last 6 months or so, and basically ran out of data when away, Boo! But now back in blighty I'm catching up with your tales. I'm spending the summer walking the Southwest coast path, and there is very little signal most of the time, but today I got the whole shiny hour and a bit, felt very spesh. I laughed a great deal, you all made the miles slip effortlessly away. So thank you very much for this and the whole "Podie" collection. Such a great thing to do, brings a lot of smiles, and a sense of connection to somehow... now run out of things to say.. but "Cornballs" is right, the 90% are dancing and enjoying! ☮️&❤️. Rob.

Mens' behaviour. I was also shocked by the things female friends have told me about things men, hopefully, used to do. I started to wonder whether I was the weird.
