Pure podcast glory

Stephen Fry, the Jeeves of Jeeves&Wooster to Hugh Laurie's Wooster, bon vivant, raconteur, author and all-around brilliant observer of all sorts of things I find interesting has a podcast now. Oh, yes. I am in my glory!! Can't wait to hear what he's got to say. He's got one of those voices I could just listen to endlessly. I would place Simon Winchester, Lisette Lecat and Douglas Adams in the same category.

Indeed it was. Just finished listening to it on the way to work this morning.

Did you read DFW's essay on language in "Consider the Lobster?" It covers much the same ground from a self-admitted pedant's perspective. Equally engaging.

Yeah, I've been listening to it for a while now, isn't he wonderful? Also, I'm almost finished watching Black Adder for the first time, so I have lots of lovely Fry and Laurie.

Both of them are wonderful. If you haven't read their novels, you are really missing out. They are excellent.

I have not read them, but I will!

Others may have different opinions, but I think all of Fry's novels are of equal merit and I really liked Laurie's book too.

I believe the world needs another something containing the cast of Black Adder Goes Forth.

Quite. I have always liked Rowan Atkinson -- if you haven't seen his stand up, it is dynamite.
