This global sensation British podcast is one of those shows with a premise so bizarre you could never make it up in a million years. Co-host Jamie Morton’s dad literally wrote a porno, or at least, a series of erotic novels called ‘Belinda Blinked’. Each season of ‘My Dad Wrote a Porno’ sees Morton read through one of said books, a chapter per episode, with commentary from his mates James Cooper and Alice Levine. It is incredibly funny but also extremely good-natured, with later series livened by the trio’s many celebrity fans.
If podcasts serve as an escape from the real world, then having a good laugh has to be the ultimate form of escapism. Broadly speaking, comedy podcasts can be divided into two categories. There are overtly comedic talk show-style podcasts built around a single weekly interview with a big-personality interviewer or interviewers, some of them surprisingly agenda-setting. And then there are the podcasts based on highly specialised concepts that usually sound weird on paper but are hysterical if done right. Here, we combine the very best of both worlds!
