David Baddiel and his mate Tim Hincks talk all things David Bowie. They spin out from there to anything and everything that’s funny, quizzical, and vaguely related to Bowie, or music, or their own mid-life crises. It’s a bit niche: Absolute Beginners won’t get it. You see? The ones who got that reference are smiling smugly. And others are thinking: I shan’t listen to that then.
 
A podcast that asks guests, such as Stephen Fry, Mark Gatiss, Rebecca Front, David Baddiel, Anthony Head & Richard Herring, for five things which they’d like to put in a Time Capsule. They can choose anything from an item, to a memory, a film or even a country. Four of them are things they want to preserve but one has to be something they’re happy to lock away and never have to think about again. Hosted by Michael Fenton Stevens. @fentonstevens @MyTCpod

For many performers, their biggest fears is that people will find the creative writing they produced when they were younger.

Each week a guest brings something they wrote in their adolescence to be discussed and co-a ...
