In the past, readers of this blog have had to read the blog themselves, or perhaps get a loved one to read it to them. I’ve heard that quite a few parents read it to their children at bedtime. Michael Gove was particularly keen to see it on the national curriculum. Or at least that was the case before I posted the blog Fuck All Bus Drivers.
A few people have asked me if I would consider reading my blog posts and publishing them as podcasts. Well, not only have I considered it, but I’ve actually gone and bloody done it. So take that all you doubters who said it would never happen, all you nay sayers.
I have so far released one blog post as a podcast episode, which is my most recent blog post about Jazz Apples and porn stars. From now on i’ll be releasing all my blogs as self-read podcast episodes, apart from the short ones that basically advertise a Young’uns podcast or something like that. I might even read some old blog posts and release those at some point. I will obviously still be publishing my blogs in the traditional format on here, so you can read it yourself if you prefer, though why would you? Do you think you can interpret my blogs better than I can, do you? ey?
You can subscribe to the podcast with Itunes here.

Other subscription options like Google to follow soon.
I’d like to end with an apology to Stephen Fry, who I know was very keen to read out these blogs, but in the end I decided that I would do it myself. I hope this doesn’t send him back into the depths of depression.
P.S. I’ve had a few people wondering whether I’ve tried a jazz apple yet. I’ve been doing some training with the BBC over the last few days and so haven’t gotten around to it, but I will remedy this soon and let you know my thoughts. I know, I should get my priorities right.
Thanks for reading.
