Clare Eden returns to Audio Drama with TV’s Trev & Simon

Nostalgia might be a bit of a fad at the moment, but we’re genuinely delighted to have comedy double act Trev and Simon back in our lives. The pair were essential Saturday morning viewing in the UK in the late 80s and early 90s, and it’s exciting to hear that they’ve returned with their wacky brand of comedy – only this time, they’re making an Audio Drama! strangeness

And what better way to make an Audio Drama than to hook up with Clare Eden from the Minister of Chance? Clare joins us in this episode to talk about how this project came about, why they chose the audio medium, and how it was funded. The first episode of Strangeness in Space was released recently after a successful Kickstarter campaign, and it’s one of the funniest and most surreal shows you’ll hear this year.

On top of diving into the nuts and bolts of getting a show up and running, Clare also gives her thoughts on writing family friendly comedy, and we chat about the curse of the podcast categories and how Audio Drama is still seeking that hard and fast method of curation and discoverability.
