I’ve written about what I think makes ‘The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry’ a special podcast. In short, it has the feeling of an independently-produced podcast, despite being a highly-produced radio programme.
The first and last episodes in this latest series have been two of my favourites. The first, The Mesmerist is especially fun when you know the presenters well. They investigate hypnosis and in the process undergo the procedure to hilarious results. The final episode, Jurassic Squawk, is not only about dinosaurs (cool) but features one of the best Curio of the Week awardees.
The programme generally takes two to three months off for production between series. As Dr Fry will be delivering a baby in the coming weeks, their hiatus will be prolonged. The next series should begin in October, which means now is a great time to get caught up.
