Hello. Well, it’s been over a year since my last post. I’m a disgrace. However, I have finally got it together to edit some of the conversations I taped with a handful of people last year and my plan is to put them out as podcasts over the next few weeks. This first one is a short chat with Louis Theroux about what constitutes taking the piss at a hotel buffet. For the time being at least, it’s free and you can download it by clicking on the appropriate button below.

My plan for these podcasts is to find my feet, build up some momentum, record some more conversations and turn this into a long term thing, but the older I get, the more I realise that long term anythings are hard to do. Except addictions to puddings and back problems. Let’s see how I get on. If this website is anything to go by, I’ll be lucky to make it to Podcast number 2… Assuming I do it should be available next week.

Oh, and I know some of you will be shouting at your screens “yeah, yeah, but when are you doing more stuff with Joe?!” The answer is still, I don’t know but one day I hope! We talk about it every time we meet but it’s never the right time to commit! Next year is the 20th anniversary of our professional relationship, so I hope we’ll find some way to mark that, though not sure in what medium. Perhaps he’ll come on the podcast and we can discuss it.

On the subject of the podcast: comments, suggestions, anecdotes etc. all welcome. I think the Soundcloud page seems a good place to leave them. I’m new to running my own podcast, so if there’s anything you think I should be doing to make it easier for people to get hold of or whatever, please let me know and I’ll carefully consider!

Cheery cheers to you.

Dr B

  • Sorry to be dim, but how do I get this feed into my podcast app? Is there a URL for the podcast RSS feed anywhere?

    Comment by Diggory — September 16, 2015 @ 1:24 pm

  • This is welcome news!

    I can’t see any buttons to press to subscribe to this in a pod catcher (I initially put that in quotes, but we all accept that term nowadays done we? Guys?). I could only get it via Soundcloud. THis may suit some, but I used cloudflipper to make an RSS feed for the rest of us. Buxton Podcast – Soundcloud

    Will check back here later to see if there’s a legit RSS feed, or if someone shows me that I missed it.

  • That RSS feed works better without spaces.–Soundcloud

    Comment by Stephen — September 16, 2015 @ 1:35 pm

  • Ah, apparently it will be available through iTunes soon, and the SoundCloud URL should act as a podcast feed. Thanks Adam.

  • Not heard the podcast yet, but Hurrah! Adam is back!

  • Nice stuff Dr. B. Really enjoyed the chat with Louis and thanks for introducing me to Lianne La Havas. Hadn’t heard her before, amazing music. Keep up the good work. Peace and love x

  • Yes Dr Buckles, it was about time that you pulled each and every finger out of those mucky mucky places and started a podcast. This one was a cracker however I would suggest that you make them longer, I listen to them when taking care of business and business lasts around 45 mins to an hour. love Mickey The Lips x

  • TV Reviews! There’s a gap in the UK market for TV Reviews – Richard Bacon used to do a good one on his show but he’s finished now. Go for it, tell me what to watch – get Boyd Hilton on the line for the detail!

    Also – maybe do a mock Serial seeing as that was popular. A really mundane minor crime investigation would do the trick…

  • Hello Adam!! Unfortunately I only started listening to Adam and Joe on your last podcast, but since then I have tried to get my hands on anything with your face on it and am a really big fan of your work! I am over the moon to hear that you are back on my Ipod and can’t wait to listen to the first episode!

    Thanks for always keeping a smile on my face! Lewis Bedford age 12.

  • Hello Overlord Buckules,

    I was going to write a long, slightly weird, opus about how I’ve watched and listened to your various tele/audio/visual/digital snufflings over the past uht.hmm years. Was going to tell you that I feel, as people, we really in tune and how we should probably be making TV shows together, or something. But that would be mildly psychotic. And I’M NOT MILDLY PSYCHOTIC.

    So… enjoyed the podcast. You were marvellous. Such a light comedic touch. A polished performer bringing all your years of bumbling to bare. Also, it helps that I love to listen to Louis Theroux’s world view. I can’t tell if it’s the way he expresses himself or the tone of voice, but I find him both simultaneously charming and deeply untrustworthy.

    Which brings me neatly to my point. Your hard-hitting look at social mores and our behaviour towards faceless capitalist structures, for instance small hotel chains, has forced to examine my own attitudes. I too have taken bananas. I too have snaffled rolls. I too have taken hostess trolleys and toasting machines and microwave ovens. I’m beginning to feel that this may have been in some small way… wrong.

    So much so that today I’m going to drive down to my lock-up in Wanstead and put the few things I’ve ‘borrowed’ from various hotels in to my seven-seater and, if there’s enough room left for me to get in to the driver’s seat, take them to the nearest charity shop.

    I’m also going to create a website which will act as a kind of ‘hotel rubbish amnesty bin’ where people can get in touch with me, confess their burgling ways and have their bootie picked up and returned to it’s rightful hotel owners. I’ve already received my promotional pack from SpareSqwace and have tentatively started work on a design for my portal. I notice that your buzz-agent advertorial didn’t go in to too much detail about the exact materials offered. Note to your buddies at SpareSQwace – balsawood isn’t the easiest to work with when trying to create a heavy duty social media platform. Californian Tech Guru Spittle isn’t really up to the job either. Anyway, I’ll let you know when it’s up and running. I’ll carve a URL from granite and send it via MyHermes.

    Anyway… I’m rambling. I’m becoming rambunctious. Thanks very much and look forward to Podcast two. Or deux, or derrrrr.

    All the best, Gary Seabrook. Out of Hackney, London.

  • Hi Adam. Just listened to your podcast which was great and really resonated. I don’t think you were out of order. My friend, Drew, and I used to go on long distance cycle trips. We would regularly raid the hotel breakfast buffets for our lunch. We would make sandwiches that we called ‘road busters’. We would use a map or a newspaper to shield the ‘buster’ making process and also to transport them out of the hotel restaurant. After a successful raid we would cycle away singing: ‘who you gonna call? Road busters’. Nice to hear you again so keep up the podcasts! Hamish.

  • Hurrah! You’re back.

    Comment by Dean — September 28, 2015 @ 9:12 am

  • YIS! You’re the king! Hey Count Buckulies! I’m excited to hear Bad Dad. I may sound like a bit of a lunatic but I arrived to the genius Adam and Joe party a little late. Your old podcasts helped me through a week of horsepital a few years ago, I laughed A LOT (luckily I was in a private room), I got caught up and then you and Edith were on the radio! Every so often I like to return to the very beginning and listen to them all again. Always laughing and I always seem to miss something hi-larious. Lots of love and smoochies P.S is Joe ever going to come back and get you two back on the Radio? COME ON! I miss you guys!

  • Well hello there Mr Buckles.

    Great to have you back inside my head with these podcasts. It has been awhile since I have made funny faces while walking around listening to your voice.

    I have been meaning to write to you for a few weeks now.

    Let me just say, that I remember meeting you for a brief moment at the comedy festival in Dublin during the summer where I shouted ‘STEPHEN”!’ at you and, true to your word, you came over, or maybe I just intersected for escape route. Apart from excited blabber, I asked you if you had any plans on returning to the podcast world and you said that it would be something you’d like to do but had no plans at that moment. A few weeks later, what do I see? Adam Buxton has a new podcast out! Much to my delight I must add.

    Now, I don’t want to take sole credit for this triumphant return, but I do believe that I put that spark and encouragement in your head to do such a thing. So I must. This is because I know for a fact that no other fan of you has ever made that suggestion to you on Buxton encounters.

    I kid of course. I have listened to all episodes so far and have even convinced some of my none regular podcast listener friends and famfam to subscribe. I hope this run is a long one.

    Love you bye!

  • Welcome back Buckles,

    Afraid you might get a sudden comment influx from me as I only recently found out you’d finally done a solo Podcast (You shoulda’ got on it ages ago man, Cornballs is great but you’re every bit as talented, of course you’re awesome together but you’re both just as good apart, it’s just different stuff) through your distraction pieces episode and binged it.

    5-star excellence thus far which has had me in hysterics as I’ve come to expect from your good self. I like that you’re playing around with the Podcast medium a bit rather than just doing a straight interview/conversation but more of a random chat about a specific subject with your mates or at least this was the case in this pilot episode with Louis. I do feel however that you are slipping into more standard Pod interviews later on with interviewees who you’re less familiar with perhaps because you don’t have the short hand clearly on display with the likes of Louis and Garth. Your personality is what makes this podcast and all of your work special, you have a unique voice, don’t be afraid to continue using it because I feel that your own insecurities may be leading you to conform to the standard podcast format in an attempt to achieve a higher listenership which while completely understandable is ultimately misguided, Scroobius was right when he commented that the listens for the more abstract episodes like your cold safari will increase over time if you stick to your guns. I should stress that the episodes with Scroobius, Rob Delaney etc are still HIGHLY entertaining and enjoyable but as Al Pacino said to Hilary swank at the climax of Christopher Nolan’s ‘Insomnia’, “Don’t lose your way”.

  • Great to hear your voice again Dr Buckles. Loving the podcasts. Keep up the good work.

  • Totally bodelicious Dr Buckles! Very excited that you’re back x

  • Hi Adam, this is Daniele from Italy and I wanna compliment you on your new podcast. It’s either entertaining and lovely recorded as well. Time to time I listen to the Adam and Joe Podcast and I miss the made up jokes niche. I’ve come up with these, check them out: Do you know what an Aussie actor – disguised as a gladiator – does in a windy day under a tree? Rustle Crowe

    Do you know why Peter – the director of Dead Poets Society – couldn’t cross that stream? Because he found a weir.

  • Hey Dr Buckles

    Love your podcast and big fan of your BBC 6 show with Joe. Writing in because, not sure if you’re aware, but in the BBC series Line of Duty, right from the first series there has been a character called Buckles. He’s a detective and every time his name is mentioned on the show, my boyfriend and I have hysterics because we imagine him as Dr Buckles. We’d love it if you would turn your comedy genius to making fun of this, and claiming the character of Dect Buckles as your own. Love the good work keep it up!
