Splendid Chaps By Request

Six topics, one hour, four chaps. Yes, it’s our bonus “By Request” episode in which Ben, John, Petra and fourth chap David Ashton discuss topics requested by our Pozible backers! And we go back, back to our very beginning, to the place where we recorded our very first episode: Penny Farthing Espresso in Northcote, Melbourne.

A big thanks to all our listeners, our live audiences throughout 2013, and of course tremendous thanks to all our Pozible supporters, without whom this episode and our live Sydney show would never have happened.

It’s not entirely goodbye, though; while this is our last recorded episode, there are a couple of extras from November we’ll be releasing in January and February next year. And you watch out for more info about our 2014 project, Night Terrace, in the coming months.

By the way, we recorded this on Christmas Eve, and look: Santa Capaldi visited us!

Episode Zero

In the back room of a Northcote cafe, Ben McKenzie and John Richards, accompanied by intrepid sound guy David Ashton, met over coffee (and organic ginger beer) to record a special “Episode Zero” introduction to their new Doctor Who podcast, Splendid Chaps.

What’s it all about? How’s it going to work? Who are these people, anyway? Discover the answers to these questions and many more in this entirely unscripted conversation, paving the way for the anniversary celebrations to come…
