Podcast 15 features British actor, writer and theatre director Kathy Burke. We talked in the kitchen of her North London home in February 2016 about her early days in theatre, some of the films and TV shows she’s appeared in, and why she stepped back from acting. She also told me about getting into trouble on Twitter, upsetting Piers Morgan and her fondness for the ‘C’ word, which gets tossed about quite a bit in this episode.

I’ve got an app! So far it’s just on i-tunes. It was put together for me by some friendly fellows at DWNLD, who provide the tools to make your own app as well. They don’t sponsor me, but they put together the app for nothing and it’s good so I’m giving them a shout out. Basically it provides a nifty way of browsing most of my on line dribbling easily on your mobile device. You may even be reading this via the DWNLD app right now!! Whoah! Inception, etc. Check it out and if you like it, write a positive review. If you hate it please be very quiet. You can get it HERE

Cheers to you.

  • Think this might be my favourite episode yet, had me really smiling all the way to work. Production was particularly good too this week, did you do the musical interludes as well? Is there anyway I can download them separately? I barely have time to do my emails let alone build a website using your fine sponsor so is there any other way I can contribute financially so you make more great things just for me?

    Love you bye.

  • Agree with the above listener (maybe he’s the lead singer of Editors?), this IS the best episode yet, great to hear AB and Kathy having such a candid chat.

    See you in Mcr on Sunday Dr B!

  • Good day Adam, just wanted to say I really enjoy your podcast and love the medium. I like that you aren’t too confrontational in your conversations and find your tone friendly and welcoming to both the guest and listener. I appreciate that. Hope you have a great week and keep doing a great job.

  • ABsolutely loved it and felt so ignorant not knowing that Kathy Burke is more than a comedy actress; i only knew her from the harry enfield and chums days. Her stories were great, i could totally listen to another one. Was funny because you barely spoke :) I like the Buxlestons rambles :) Love the wee ramble chat jingley jongley jingle :)

  • Hi Adam. Like Tom Smith I enjoyed the musical interludes too. What is the ambient-style one about half-way through? It sounds a bit like Jean-Michel Jarre, which is a good thing in my book. That aside, of course the chart with Kathy was fantastic. It made me realise how much I’ve missed her voice and presence now that she’s moved away from acting.

  • I am a podcast virgin (seriously late in the game!!) and have just spent the morning listening to some of yours… Excellente! Really enjoyed this one with Kathy Burke and the one with Mark Riley – both have lovely voices to listen to. I agree with Kathy the C-word is awesome and there’s nothing else like it in the English language. Really interesting stories from both. To be honest, your podcasts have seriously saved me from my really boring job. Thank you! Keep making them!
