Boys Don't Cry with Russell Kane

Boys Don’t Cry is the hit podcast from JOE - a mix of humour and serious conversation - around some of the issues that men spend a lifetime not talking about: from sobbing in private to mental health, body hair to cheating, and fronted by one of Britain’s biggest comedy talents, Russell Kane.

Boys is a thoughtful, surprising, laugh out loud funny show that makes you think about some of the challenges of being a man in 2018 by tackling topics that widely remain taboo.

Secret Dinosaur Cult with Sofia Hagen

Secret Dinosaur Cult is the brand new podcast from Sofie Hagen, co-hosted by former MohPod-guest Jodie Mitchell: A wonderfully funny and intelligent queer comedian and drag king. It has everything you love from MohPod: Intimacy, feminism, daddy issues. Mixed with fun jingles, comedy and of course, dinosaurs.

The Two Shot Podcast with Craig Parkinson

The Two Shot Podcast has been making waves with critics and the listening audience alike and was awarded Best Culture Podcast at this year's British Podcast Awards.

Craig Parkinson (Line of Duty, Four Lions, Control, Misfits) talks to all walks of the artistic community about life and what makes them tick. Extreme highs, crushing lows. Whether it's an actor, a painter, a musician or a poet, one thing connects them all - a creative life in the arts isn't all it's cracked up to be.

The Totally Football Show with James Richardson

It was the summer that football came home (almost) - and the Totally Football Show is also coming home. Or at least, it's coming to Manchester. In the autumn.

Join Jimbo, Producer Ben and other voices from your favourite football podcast for their first live show in Mancunia as they talk Pep, Mou, United, City, the other mob down the M62 and much, much more. There'll be puns, there'll be punditry, there'll be reminiscing about Gazzetta Football Italia - and stories far too salacious for the normal show.

Hoovering with Jessica Fostekew

Welcome to Hoovering, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.
