Episode 39 // Simon Greenall AKA 'Michael The Geordie'

A very special guest arrives just in time for the last in the current series - Mr Simon Greenall lifts the lid on the formation and (alleged) demise of Michael the Geordie, how Partridge gets made, and the best bits that never made it to air. But first, there was the small matter of Admiral Nelson to discuss... // Get in touch: / Twitter: @thepartridgepod / / Instagram: @monkeytennispod

Episode 36 // Mid Morning Matters S1E1: Broth & Muppet LIVE

This week we make our first foray into Mid Morning Matters, in front of an intimate live audience at Warner Music HQ; as part of their comedy events series. Sadly Adam didn't make it past Chiswick Roundabout for this recording, so you're left in the capable hands of Tom, Tom and Nick. We try to answer the big questions - but don't necessarily succeed - including: why was Anthea Turner the most hated woman in Britain? Is Bill Oddie actually okay? Is radio beamed down from space? And, most...

Episode 35 // I, Partridge: Chapters 31-34

We get legally worried in this absolute groin-wrecker of an episode (and we're not talking about Wally Banter's Junk Box) as we discuss motivational course/panto Forward Solutions, Mid Morning Matters (only the show that Daily Daytime Debate could've been) and the link betwixt Alan, Oasis, and milk. Plus: How to hide redundancies, Sidekick Simon's forced alcoholism, Alan's "2% effect" and our final thoughts on I, Partridge. // Get in touch: / Twitter:...

Alan’s freelance years go under the microscope this week as we take on his never-made cop show Swallow, barely-watched game show Skirmish and sadly-made corporate videos.

Episode 32 // I, Partridge: Chapters 17-21

Nipple inconsistencies and humane monkey destruction collide this week as we look at the infamous Tony Hayers meeting from Alan’s point of view. We also touch on diary violations, Alan’s unheard show pitch, ‘weird rooms’ and Tom Stabb’s French adventure. Not for you? Tits to all that - I’m sure we can sort something out. // Come to our live recording next month: // Get in touch: / Twitter: @thepartridgepod /...

Episode 31 // I, Partridge: Chapters 13-16

It all begins to crumble in this episode, as KMKY goes down the pan, Forbes MacAllister goes to the grave, and Alan's wife goes to the gym (for more than cardio).

Episode 29 // I, Partridge: Chapters 5-8

We chat teabags, desk audits and only children as we survey Alan's move into 'success' (hospital radio > Radio 4) and 'love' (Carol). Plus: Is kicking a pig 'in self defence' the worst thing Alan's ever done? Is asking for 'loads of salary' a good interview technique? And who or what is Gus Honeybun? // We're live in London soon: // Get in touch:, Twitter: @thepartridgepod,, Instagram: @monkeytennispod

Episode 25 // Your Feedback

We’ve bounced back and we’re ready to take a look over the best of your emails, tweets, and Facebook messages from the last few months. This sees us tackling some seriously large questions: What would Alan's wrestling finisher move be? How much would a ladyboy chaser cost in 2017? What will the new Alan show in 2018 be like? Along the way we also clarify our Clives (was it Anderson? Was it James?), reveal how you can now play Cards Against Alanity at your leisure, and launch our new Alan...
