Acast — the world’s biggest podcast company — has teamed up with Comic Relief to bring the UK’s most popular podcasts together for a special one-off series. The Red Nose Day Podcast Mashup will help raise money to create positive change in the UK and around the world.
In the greatest crossover event in podcasting history, listeners will hear what happens when two of their favourite Acast Creator Network podcasts are mixed, mingled and mashed up to create new, hilarious shows like they’ve never heard before.
James Acaster and Ed Gamble never made it to their reservation at the dream restaurant, so ended up on a date with Brett Goldstein to choose their Menus To Be Buried With.
Richard Herring directs his infamous lines of interrogation to Julia Davis and Vicki Pepperdine’s agony aunt alter egos in Emergency Questions with Joan & Jericha. Expect frankly ridiculous questions like “Would you rather have a ham hand or an armpit that dispenses suncream?”
It’s a true crime cocktail party as the ladies from RedHanded and Drunk Women Solve Crime get together for a sinister soirée in Drunk Women Caught RedHanded.
Taskmaster’s Alex Horne and his merry band change up their usual set for boom bap rap alongside Romesh Ranganathan in Hip Hop Saved The Horne Section.
And it’s comedian Dane Baptiste’s turn to question everything fellow funnyman Tom Price has purchased on the internet in Toaster Questions Everything.
“Let’s face it, we all need a laugh right now.” said Sam Shetabi, UK Content Director, Acast “Acast couldn’t be prouder to be the true home of UK comedy podcasts, and the biggest and funniest podcasters around. We worked with our friends at Comic Relief to give podcast fans around the world a treat by mashing up some of our favourite shows to raise some laughs that raises money for Red Nose Day this year.”
Samir Patel, CEO, Comic Relief said: “Teaming up with Acast, and working with the biggest and funniest podcasts on the Acast Creator Network is the perfect partnership for Red Nose Day. During these challenging times it’s more important than ever to have a laugh and we’re excited to be bringing everyone some much-needed cheer, and if listeners are able to donate, they will be supporting vulnerable people in the UK and around the world, as we help tackle homelessness, domestic abuse and mental health stigma.”
