PODCASTASTIC #8 - A Scottish Podcast



The day that I walked in to Night Vale was the day I fell in love with podcasts.  

My phone how ever got pissed off quickly as it liked Angry Birds and I'd went and put it in the great recycle bin in the cloud to make way for episodes of quirky shows that me, the owner of said phone likes!

Anyway this week I've been listening to......


A Scottish Podcast' is a serialised modern audio drama. When washed up radio DJ Lee finds himself "between jobs" he decides to launch a paranormal investigative podcast series, inspired by the likes of 'The Black Tapes', 'The Message', and 'Limetown'. Enter 'The Terror Files'. Aided by his long suffering sidekick, struggling musician Dougie, the pair embark on their first investigation - by heading down into a newly uncovered vault underneath Edinburgh's old town. Lee is prepared to sprinkle a bit of fiction into his reporting to keep things lively. But it soon becomes clear that these long forgotten tunnels harbour a secret far darker than he ever could've hoped to conjure up with his own imagination. This is a dramatised work of fiction with colourful language. Not for the easily offended.

Imagine if Still Game and Trainspotting gave birth to a podcast, a podcast full of shit tons of fucking bad language (yep including the C word!!), Scottish banter and spooky stuff going down in the streets of my beautiful country.  I present to you A Scottish Podcast!

Now as a fellow Scot, I instantly loved this because the banter from the voice cast is pure dead brilliant (!) and it felt like the main guys Dougie and Lee could be my husband and his pals down the pub.

The only difference being Dougie and Lee do actually leave the pub!

Long story short Lee has started a podcast, The Terror Files and ropes Dougie in to occasionally help. His first podcast involves the discovery of an underground vault in Edinburgh.

Now if you aren't familiar with Edinburgh it does actually have underground vaults, I know this because I nearly soiled myself when I visited one during the night on a hen (bacherlorette for my over the pond pals) weekend, it was scary shit.

Anyhoo I could visualise where Dougie and Lee where exploring quite easily and this added to my listening experience.  They don't just go the Edinburgh they also visit a remote isle and look out for things that go bump in the night.

Add to this a cast of gentleman gangsters, football coaches and a very drunk woman and you get a totally addictive podcast.
