June 2021 - Soundheap

Soundheap is a brand new podcast by John-Luke Roberts and produced by Ed Morrish, showcasing the very best moments from the most eclectic podcast network in world.

John-Luke and Ed have roped 35 comedians into improvising podcasts such as How To Put Out A Raging Fire (Mainly Guesses) and How Wide Is Your Coinage? and I've been lucky enough to record various bits and bobs for the show, which will be peppered throughout the run. Details on how the show was written and recorded are available on Ed Morrish's blog and the show itself is now available wherever you get your podcasts. 

Welcome Strangers Series 3 is now all available on BBC Sounds, although you'll have to be quick as I think the episodes start dropping-off today! I wrote some sketches and also acted as script editor for the series, which stars Mali Ann Rees, Laura Dalgleish, Beth Granville, Eleri Morgan, Sian Harries and Ruth Madoc.

Gareth Gwynn Declares Independence From Wales is back on BBC Sounds. Inspired by Richard Booth and his ambitions for Hay-On-Wye, I spent a good portion of last year trying to work out what it would take for a town like Brecon to break-away from Wales and the United Kingdom and go it alone. It resulted in me speaking to the Honorary Counsul for Kiribati, leaving an answerphone message with the UN and accidentally becoming an international ambassador for Uzupis in the process. The whole adventure, split into two parts, is on the BBC Radio Wales/BBC Sounds website now, with a very swish show picture, drawn by the producer, Rosemary Baker.
