News – Latvia – Popular podcasts

  • From outsiders like a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath to such thought leaders as scholar James Lindsay and feminist Helen Lewis, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Monday - with trailers on his Twitter page: @andrewgold_ok ( and Instagram page: @andrewgold_ok ( . 

    With an open mind and a wry sense of humour, Andrew alternates the theme of guest. Some weeks it'll be with somebody totally 'on the edge' - whether it be the woman who married a sociopathic bigamist or the Australian Coffin Confessor, who is paid to reveal secrets at funerals . Other episodes will have interviews with such leading minds as Conservative peer Lord Daniel Finkelstein and feminist Helen Pluckrose.

    It was picked in Apple's prestigious New & Noteworthy category and has been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Get in touch or leave a review - it helps boost it up those charts!

    About the Host: 

    Andrew is an award-winning journalist and TV presenter who has been making documentaries about bizarre, unusual and remarkable people around the world for a decade. He's done battle with an exorcist and hunted for UFOs - all while living in six different countries and learning to speak five languages. 

    In this podcast, he aims to get to the humanity of people living on the fringes, and introduce these diverse figures to the listener.
