  • Hi! Welcome to Storytime with Seth Rogen, where every week Seth asks somebody, “Do you have a great story? And if you do, will you tell it on my podcast?” That’s it. That’s the concept. But the results are so much more than that.

    This is not a typical comedian-hosted chat show! Each episode plays like a little audio documentary, a feature presentation unto itself, with supporting interviews and archival tape woven into each story with a rhythmic editing style. Not all the stories are knee-slap funny, and not all the guests are known. From a near-death grizzly bear fight in remote Canada, to a life-altering celebrity encounter in a movie theatre, to the revelation of a family secret, Storytime starts with Seth’s curiosity about people and the world, and always ends up in an unexpected place.

  • A podcast about stories and storytelling.

  • David Baddiel and his mate Tim Hincks talk all things David Bowie. They spin out from there to anything and everything thatโ€™s funny, quizzical, and vaguely related to Bowie, or music, or their own mid-life crises. Itโ€™s a bit niche: Absolute Beginners wonโ€™t get it. You see? The ones who got that reference are smiling smugly. And others are thinking: I shanโ€™t listen to that then.

  • James Joyce's 'Ulysses' is one of the most important works of modernist literature. The book chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904 (the day of Joyce's first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle). In 1982 RTÉ Radio celebrated the centenary of Joyce's birth with a dramatised full production of 'Ulysses'; this broadcast is now considered one of the definitive adaptations of the book. See RTE.ie/ulysses for more.
