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!

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. And daily.

    Spreading The Bugle’s love of royalty into the new era, Hari is from Queens. He broke all kinds of records by becoming the third person ever to co-host The Bugle, the first new co-host in 9 years.

  • 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.

  • Anuvab Pal

    Anuvab Pal is a modern polymath, having managed to pursue successful careers in the theatre, comedy, literature and cinema. He is apparently one of the five funniest people in India, and India has a lot of people, a ringing endorsement.
