The first snippet from The Alan Partridge Podcast has been shared.
Comedian Steve Coogan’s latest outing as the fictional Norfolk radio DJ, officially titled From The Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast, will arrive on Audible on September 3.
Before then, fans can listen to a short extract in which Alan recalls recording a voice-over for a milk advert via Empire.
“Like most people, I assumed those who hosted podcasts were pale, tech obsessed social lepers who live with their mums and couldn’t get a platform on any meaningful broadcaster so started spouting their bloated opinions into their USB microphones to flatter their groaning sense of self-importance,” Coogan’s Partridge has said of the foray into podcasting.
“But then I spoke to a man I’d never heard of before from Audible. HE called ME and made me an offer. I countered. He came back. I countered again. In short, we hammered out the details (to my satisfaction) and the result is a series of podcasts. They’ve been described as very good/sensational,” he added.
From The Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast will feature 18 episodes and give Partridge fans greater insight into the character, in what has been described as “fascinating conversations and richly sound-designed audio vignettes.”
The series is available to pre-order now – free for Audible members – with a scheduled release due for September 3.
