It’s been described as a “cultural phenomenon”, and it has certainly gained a big following among London commuters. The incredibly popular comedy podcast, My Dad Wrote A Porno had nearly 100 million downloads, and they’ve now launched a live show.

The podcast is hosted by a trio of friends and colleagues who met while at University in Leeds – Jamie Morton, James Cooper, and Radio 1 DJ, Alice Levine.

Each episode, Jamie reads out a chapter from his 60-year-old dad’s erotic novel, named Belinda Blinked, while the other presenters provide commentary.

The idea was born when Jamie Morton asked to read some of the book his dad was working on, before realising it was a racy novel. Rather than choose to ignore it, he read it aloud at a Christmas dinner with friends, who began to chip in.

The gentle humour and the rapport between the presenters have made it a real hit, and fans include Daisy Ridley and Tamal from The Great British Bake Off.
