EP.30 - MICHAELA COEL

Adam talks to Michaela Coel, writer and star of BAFTA winning TV sitcom 'Chewing Gum', about bodily functions, finding and misplacing God, and sex clubs, (amongst other things) with frequently coarse and explicit language!!!

Long time listener bur first time poster. great podcast but a brilliant guest. I liked Chewing Gum and she had a great little cameo in the first of the Black Mirrors this season. The idea of her doing her youth in about six months had me in stitches of thought.
Keep up the good work.

You miiiiiight want to reinstate the 'Explicit' tag on itunes - it's been missing from the past few and this one's a corker...

I listened to it loud and proud in my large open plan office, but had to turn it down a little bit for the spunky jacuzzi section. But we're all sexy human adults here so it was probably fine.

Have been listening to your work for so many years now and I have to say that being able to hear your solo podcasts brings me back to those 6 Music days when me and my colleague would tremble with laughter every Tuesday morning when the new one was released. Keep it up, you make coming to work a far better prospect.

Hey Ad,

Feel like your podcasts are going from strength to strength at the moment - loved your ramblechat with Michaela. And 'My wife' has become a staple saying in our household (I'm not even married).

A question... watching some old Bug episodes and just seen the one with the sushi song. In your next podcast can you PLEASE fill us in on the details about your experience filming this mad video? I'm thinking in particular the part where the Japanese girl squats above your face and appears to plop sushi all over your gaping mouth. Surely there's a story there?

Much love,
Lozenge

Another great podcast as ever! Appalled to hear the negative feedback about. 'My wife'. Made me laugh in this episode almost as much as Louis' singing in the last. Keep up the excellent work!

Hey Capt. Buckles,

Not trying to blow smoke up your A-hole, but I think your jingles are fantastic – personal favourite is the ‘halfway through the podcast’ ditty… sleazy in all the right ways.

Any plans to release them as an album? I mean sure, I’d probably listen to it once before realising they work much better as part of the podcast. And their undoubted charm may wear thin played back to back. However as a consumer of your free podcast, I feel entitled to tell you what creative choices you should be making. So please hurry up and give me what I want!

Good day sir!

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
