The star of our October release, Brett Goldstein is also a television star on Apple TV’s Ted Lasso. However, over the past four years of his podcast, Films to be Buried With, he has also become a podcasting darling. So much so that other podcasters want him on their shows! You may have caught up on the show’s backlog, or looked at my personal recommendations of top episodes to listen to, but you may be craving for more Goldstein. That’s where we can help with these suggestions of the best Brett Goldstein podcast appearances.
Ed Gamble and James Acaster – hosts of the hit podcast Off Menu – have appeared in Goldstein’s staple podcast, Films to be Buried With. In these podcast crossovers for Comic Relief, the tables are turned and James and Ed have to choose the meals that best represent their lives before they go to the afterlife. The first special was so good Ed and James were resurrected for a second special in 2022. These episodes bring an abundance of laughter, both for you and from the hosts. Listen on your podcast app >>
An interview show with a twist. Annie McGrath welcome Brett to choose an object or topic that inspires him, which Annie and Brett then create art about these chosen subjects. The vibe of this one is gentle with soft humour and feels as though you are there with them as they include clutter noises from the equipment and when the host and guest turn away to focus on their art. Secret Artists has guests on the show that are well known in British comedy, including Sophie Duker and Joe Lycett, so this is an excellent gateway into the show. Listen on your podcast app >>
Conversations Against Living Miserably
In partnership with TV channel Dave and the charity Mind, hosts Aaron Gillies and Lauren Pattison invited Brett onto the show to talk about he lives his life without miserably (or so we think). Brett also reflects on his general mood throughout his childhood and the pressure to feel miserable to be a good artist. An honest and frank conversation about mental health sprinkled with a dishy sense of humour, this is a short and sweet episode where you can take a break from the over-produced, loud and glitzy podcasts. The show did finish in 2020 so if you are intrigued by it you won’t be as intimidated by the backlog. Listen on your podcast app >>
Birthday Girls House Party
In this podcast, Brett joins sketch comedy trio, Beattie Edmondson, Camille Ucan, and Rose Johnson to plan the ultimate move night. This show is explosive and exciting with goofy party games played like everyone is fueled by copious amounts of sugar. During this Brett shares about how he may love eating popcorn in a dark room rather than actually watching films, the girls talk about how old the actors are in Grease, and the behind the scenes of filmmaking. The energy between the four podcasters take you back to your school days with the amount of chaos and laughs. Listen on your podcast app >>
