From Brian Blessed’s Bedtime Stories to Who Am I This Time? and The Shift: This week’s top podcasts

Brian Blessed’s Bedtime Stories

Brian Blessed is not quite sure what a ‘bodcast’ is, but he sounds very pleased to be hosting one. 

On each short episode of Brian Blessed’s Bedtime Stories, the actor reads a children’s story, spiked with funny asides and delivered with bucketloads of charisma

On each short episode (they’re about five minutes long) he reads a children’s story – familiar tales such as Peter Rabbit or Goldilocks – spiked with funny asides and delivered with bucketloads of charisma.

 

The Shift

When journalist and author Sam Baker hit the menopause she felt too hot, chronically under-confident and ‘practically invisible’. Here she interviews women about how they pulled off the ‘shift’ from the first half of their lives to the second. Start with the warming episode with author Marian Keyes, who talks about Botox, infertility and how she’s learned to value her own opinion.

 

Who Am I This Time?

David Morrissey, star of The Singapore Grip, talks to fellow performers from film, TV and theatre about the most significant role in their career.

For Alan Cumming it wasn’t playing the unhinged baddie Boris Grishenko in the 1995 Bond film GoldenEye that transformed his fortunes, but his part as the Master of Ceremonies in the 1993 stage revival of the musical Cabaret. 

 

On The Edge With Andrew Gold

Award-winning BBC journalist Andrew Gold talks to people ‘on the edge’ of social norms, from bigamists to female Mormon psychopaths and porn stars. Start with the episode with Zoltan Istvan, a leading light in the transhumanist movement. It’s a fascinating listen – but certainly not for the woke-hearted.
