Steve Coogan in Greed and The Trip To Greece, Chic, Cornershop

BLAME IT ON THE COOGAN: Does Alan Partridge’s alter ego acquit himself better as a thinly-veiled pastiche of charmless retail plutocrat Sir Philip Green in Michael Winterbottom’s gaudy comedy Greed? Or as an even-thinner-veiled version of himself in the final series of The Trip with Rob Brydon? (Food notes: this time it’s Greece).

We talk to guest Daryl Easlea – writer for Record Collector, Mojo, Uncut and more – about the new edition of his book Everybody Dance: Chic And The Politics Of Disco. Jockey Slut co-founder John Burgess talks about his old mate Andrew Weatherall and his new turbo-pop venture, the Mighty Hoopla Festival. Plus Cornershop turn Brexit into defiant indie rock, and a whole lot more. It’s all your earholes desire. 

Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Audio production by Alex Rees. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
