The Bugle is the ultimate pan-global audio home of international satire. The show is a weekly eruption of comedic comment about the world’s most, and least, important news stories.

Since its 2016 relaunch it has been hosted by Andy Zaltzman with his private militia of co-hosts including Hari Kondabolu from the US, Anuvab Pal from India, Alice Fraser from Australia and, from the UK, Nish Kumar and Andy’s multi-podcast-award-winning sister Helen.

After launching in October 2007, The Bugle has had many homes, but now can only survive if you come and watch us AND donate!

In 2020 The Last Post entered the world, casting an interdimensional look at topical news, and in 2021, The Gargle joined the family, with Alice Fraser delivering a weekly take on all the news, except the politics.

  • The Last Post

    Imagine a world just like this one where a man called Trump still runs the free world, where Brexit continues to rage on and climate change continues to simultaneously burn, melt and pour on things. Imagine this world also has podcasts and there is a satirical show that speaks truth to power. And rather than being hosted by Andy, it's hosted by Alice.

    • Helen Zaltzman

      Helen is a podcasting legend. Ask her about podcasting, or Serial. With hits like Answer Me This and Radiotopia’s The Allusionist under her belt, her joining The Bugle is an issue the competition commission should have an issue with. Yes, she is Andy’s sister.
