Comedian Alan Partridge podcast back for 2nd series

‘From The Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast’ has returned with a second series.

Alan Partridge is back for another run and the iconic comedy character – who is played by comedian Steve Coogan – is back for 11 episodes dealing with topics ranging from novel-writing and swimming, to dating and potholing.

Alan Gordon Partridge is a comedy character portrayed by the English actor Steve Coogan and now “In exchange for a series of payments from Audible, he promises an access-all-areas pass to the nooks and crannies of his hinterland, to reveal a wiser, cleverer, more reflective Alan than many of his more vaunted peers have given him credit for.

“He then sends the resultant podcasts to Audible ensuring they meet the technical specifications laid down in the contract.”

The first episode – ‘The Alan Patridge Guide to Making Connections’ – is live now and includes 10 tips for those trying to master the art of networking.

He said: “When it comes to podcasting I was a late adopter. I believed – like millions of others – that the future of broadcasting lay in hologram technology.

“Over a decade later and with Peartree Holograms now dissolved, I can see that I backed the wrong horse, just as I had with Betamax.

“Now, I have thrown my all into podcasting and am pleased to be considered one of finest podcasters of all time. My new series will cement that legacy.”

Alan previously explained how his podcast differs from alternative shows.

The comedy character – who has also appeared in TV shows, a movie and written books – shared: “Format is the death of chat. Podcasts are strangled by format – talk about your favourite meal, tell us about the adverts you enjoy, tell us about the last time you cried, watch ‘Doctor Who’ with me.

“Mine is different. I just yank back the curtain, drop the facade, peel back the warm hood of celebrity and reveal the real me, the raw me, the true me. A be-cardiganed, cuppa-tea-swigging, pair-of-slippers kind of Alan.”

The second series was announced in May, and Alan teased fans about what to expect from the upcoming run.

An Audible Original, ‘From The Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast’ series two, has been written by Steve Coogan, Rob and Neil Gibbons and produced by Baby Cow for Audible. Available now exclusively on Audible at
