Joe Lycett launches new podcast, Turdcast

Catherine Muxworthy November 20, 2023

Comedian Joe Lycett has announced a new upcoming podcast, and in true Lycett-fashion it has an unusual topic. Turdcast will be a new audio series that sees celebrities sharing their “their most satisfying, horrifying and frankly awful toilet stories,” explains an official outline of the podcast.

“Joe has always been fascinated by the great leveller that is going to the toilet. From King Charles to Gary Barlow, we all need to jump to do a dump, flee to do a wee or grit to do a… well, you know – literally nobody is too hot to squat. But we ARE all collectively terrified at the prospect of discussing our toilet habits – that time you got caught short, walked in on your mate or realised the loo roll had run out.

“From bog standards to demon dumps, we all have a toilet story to tell and you’ll now get to hear them all in the number 1 (or number 2) podcast from Mummy. Turdcast will reveal the side (underside?) of your favourite celebrities we don’t get to hear enough about, be it because of their shyness, modesty or downright self-disgust.”

The first guest for the podcast has already been announced as Gary Lineker who will be talking to Joe Lycett “about the infamous 1990 World Cup where he shat himself on the pitch in front of millions of people. And A LOT more.”

Talking about the podcast, Joe said: “Famous people are just like you or me – they sometimes find themselves experiencing a blissful quarter of an hour with a novel and a multipack of Cushelle, or flooring it down the M6 in a race against time to find a Welcome Break cubicle. Let’s face it, most podcasts are just celebrities talking shit – Turdcast will now make that official.”

The podcast is due to launch at 9am, Friday, November 24, where ever you get your podcasts.
