Pod Bible are proud partners with Audible, and they give a round-up of the most popular Audible Original podcasts in each issue of the Pod Bible Magazine. On the website, we will bring you a more in-depth look at some of those popular Audible Original Podcasts, starting with a fan-favourite listen, French & Saunders: Titting About.
If you watched any UK TV in the 90s, you are likely familiar with Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. As comedy double-act French and Saunders, they are memorable for parodies of films such as Titanic, Silence of the Lambs and Lord of the Rings. Now, a French and Saunders podcast brings them back together for their Audible Original series, French & Saunders: Titting About. And there is something incredibly joyful about hearing them together again.
The duo take a relatable topic and playfully riff comedy from it. From stories on airport shopping, to the scandalous reveal of which of the pair snogged Brad Pitt! As with all good celebrity podcasts, the topics would be mundane in other hands – but I seriously want to find out what Saunders’ top-three vegetables are…
Launched at the end of 2020, this series of six episodes has been described by listeners as “exactly what is needed right now”.
And listeners aren’t alone in they’re excitement. It’s clear that the pair enjoyed themselves in the making of it. When talking about her experience making the podcast, Dawn French said:
“Titting About with Fatty is the best fun I’ve had without my incontinence pants on. Which, on reflection, was a mistake. Some soft furnishings were damaged in the making of this series.”
“I can’t imagine anything I’d rather be doing than titting about with Dawn. We both have tits, after all”.
Audible shared some of the things you can look forward to in each episode:
Episode 1: Passions and Hobbies
Dawn and Jennifer explore their passions and hobbies, including Jennifer’s love of football. Plus, find out which of them has a fondness for kissing (…Brad Pitt).
Episode 2: Holidays
They may seem like a thing of the past now, but the glamorous world of holidays centre stage in Episode 2. Dawn recalls dribbling on a stranger whilst asleep on Concorde, whilst Jennifer remembers childhood holidays swimming in sewage.
Episode 3: School
Talking about their time at school, Dawn and Jennifer remember frightening teachers, the awkwardness of sex education and – that dreaded word that brings fear into children and adults alike – ‘liver’.
Episode 4: The Seven Deadly Sins
From Lust to Greed, Dawn and Jennifer examine their lives, through the moral compass of the Seven Deadly Sins. Subjects covered include Idris Elba, road rage and elastic waistbands.
Episode 5: Food
Some say that food is the ingredient that binds us together. Let’s see if that’s the case as Jennifer reveals her top-three vegetables and Dawn shares what her last meal would be.
Episode 6: If We Were Alive Now
In the final episode of the series, Dawn and Jennifer look back at their careers. From early gigs as a double act with one functioning microphone to considering which shows they would parody now
This French and Saunders podcast is an entertaining and exclusive insight to the warm, mischievous friendship of two much-loved performers, leaving no stone unturned for laughs.
