Talking Dogs with Graeme Hall

Comedian Frank Skinner has a new cavapoo called Poppy. He and Graeme Hall chat through the realities of raising a puppy, as it’s turned out to be a little more difficult than Frank had expected. He explains what he found particularly challenging about toilet training, and impresses Graeme with the way he’s socialised Poppy. Plus, they debate whether getting some help by way of a dog walker or daycare is a good idea.Do you have a question for The Dogfather? Send Graeme a voice note and a video of your pesky pooch to talkingdogs@avalonuk.com.

A COMEDIAN'S PRAYER BOOK by Frank Skinner, read by Frank Skinner - audiobook extract

HodderPod - Hodder books podcast

Comedian and TV and radio Host Frank Skinner talking to his biggest audience yet - God.A Comedian's Prayer Book. The title is a worry, isn't it?God is a tough audience as far as audible response is concerned, but at least you don't have to explain the references. In this collection of prayers, much-loved Comedian, Broadcaster and radio Host Frank Skinner has tried to retain the bare candour of the rehearsal-room improvisation - to show what faith feels like, from the inside - but infused it with all the production values required to make it a passable public entertainment. In it are his convictions, his questions, his fears, his doubts, his elations - all presented in an eavesdropper-friendly form.Hell, judgement, atheism, money, faith and the X-Men all feature: it's a bit like reading the Bible, except you only get one side of the conversation, and all the jokes are left in.

Fantasy Football League (1994-96): Frank Skinner and David Baddiel's comedy show

Brett & Cliff's Flea Circus: A movie and TV podcast

Fantasy Football League made household names Frank Skinner and David Baddiel when it aired on BBC2 on Friday nights between 1994 and 1996. The show had celeb guests from the era and combined football, pop culture and comedy in a way no other had done before. We loved it then and love it now. There's also some state-of-the-nation-type chat a Terry Venables-themed football quiz, Bobi Wine news and more. Cliff also had to use a gaming headset after breaking his mic. Soz. Music comes from the super talented 20th Century Son with his song Shout It Out Loud. You can find more of his music on Spotify here https://open.spotify.com/artist/0x6hUvIv71GFVWKLgwhdcS?si=IVMoMEm3T2uADfTVm7AJMQ. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
