The Odditorium is a fortnightly podcast featuring different guest speakers sharing their passions for an eclectic array of subjects. Each episode is recorded before a live audience and hosted by Dr Bramwell and his ill-prepared sidekick, Mr Mounfield. Guests include Bunny Suicides author Andy Riley, John Higgs and Daisy Campbell (daughter of Ken Campbell), Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, Alan Moore and Sarah Angliss. 

The Odditorium features as a live event at Brighton Festival, Port Eliot Festival, Secret Garden Party and Wilderness Festival.

 

Enter a world of plaintive soundscapes, peppered with stories and curious histories that have inspired his music. Learn about ghost number stations, drowned villages, Moomin creator Tove Jansson or the history of the harmonium, before David gently wraps it all up with a track from the Oddfellow's archive.

 


SAMPLE EPISODE: DROWNED VILLAGES 

David revisits the heatwave of 1976 when ladybirds threatened to take over the world and a drowned village in Derbyshire re-emerged from beneath Ladybower Reservoir. Or did it? The featured song by Oddfellow's Casino is We Will Be Here.
