Boo Hoo Update, Newsjack and JLR's Street Dares

Boo Hoo - It's The News

Thanks to everyone who has downloaded our topical comedy podcast "Boo Hoo - It's The News!". If you haven't heard it yet, there are currently 6x10-minute episodes available on iTunes, or you can download the shows directly from the "Boo Hoo - It's The News" webpage.

Myself and John-Luke Roberts are actually taking a short break from the podcast, but will return in the not too distant future. If you subscribe via iTunes you'll get the new episodes automatically, and we've also set up a Facebook group to keep people informed of our slightly wonky release schedule.


Just a quick note to any budding writers - I'm currently working on a new show for BBC Radio 7 called "Newsjack". Presented by Miles Jupp, it's a topical sketch show with an open door policy, so a great opportunity to get your stuff on-air.

All the details regarding submissions and deadlines are available from the Newsjack website and you can listen to a full episode on iPlayer right now, which should help any potential contributors get a feel for programme.

Street Dares

And finally, make sure you check out John-Luke "Boo Hoo - It's The News" Roberts' brand new video "Street Dares" video.
