High Anxiety Pod with Ash Atalla
Bafta winning, potty mouthed, comedy wizard Ash Atalla (The Office, IT Crowd, People Just Do Nothing, Trollied) is this weeks chatmonger. He moans a bit about the lonely life of a producer as well as talking about his numerous awards. He gives some bona fide good advice about producing top drawer comedy which is his speciality. His anxiety about clutter and what people think about him is a particular highlight. Leon breathes quite heavily throughout and Chris is a bit of a prick... apparently.
