Lou Sanders has teamed up with fellow comic Luke McQueen to create the podcast Why is Your Bottom so Dirty?; a totally improvised fictional chat show that isn’t really as vulgar or disgusting as it may sound.
The pair have taken on the challenge of helping various people who are damaged in a variety of ways (including characters played by Celeste Dring, Brett Goldstein and Phoebe Walsh so far). Their method? A Freudian style of talking therapy that involves the characters recounting significant tales from their childhood, to find the source of their worries and neuroses. The catch? The symptoms always have something to do with the smell of the patient’s rear. Odd, yes, but stick with it.
There have been three episodes so far, all available to listen for free on iTunes.
