Rank #2: Where to, mate?

Podcast cover
Read more
Set and recorded on location in a car in Manchester, ‘Where To, Mate?’ is a semi-improvised comedy following our main drivers Bernie and Ben as we eavesdrop on their taxi journeys around the North West.

This week Bernie picks up Milton and they strike up a friendship; and Ben picks up a healer who tries to help him against his will.

Ben was the first driver to work at the firm and he’s seen it all. He likes 80s movies and arguing about nothing, but tries to help passengers out with their problems whenever he can.

Bernie has left her husband in Birmingham and escaped to Manchester to work as the only female driver at All Star Cars. She didn’t get out on her own much before she got this job, but she’s making up for it now.

Jason Wingard is a writer, director and film maker from Manchester. He’s written and directed a number of award winning short films as well as the feature film ‘Eaten By Lions’ which recently had a cinema release.

The show features local voices and character actors /comedians from the North.
