Pick of the Podcasts: The Line Up, Harsh Reality, Wrestling With Freddie

’Tis the season for…wellies, bucket hats and Ocean Colour Scene T-shirts?

Not all of us want to indulge in everything festive at this time of year, preferring instead to daydream of summers spent wandering fields and listening to live music. It seems, in the deep midwinter, quite far off.

Luckily, Shaun Keaveny is keeping summer music festivals going all year long.

Following an incredible first season of festival shenanigans with guests including Bobby Gillespie, Jodie Whittaker, Joy Crookes and Keith Urban, the former BBC Radio 6 Music breakfast host is back with the No. 1 rated Apple podcast The Line Up.

Broadcasting icon Keaveny gives its music-loving guests the chance to curate their very own dream festival from start to finish. It’s one of those ideas which seems to have been transplanted from a pleasing dinner party and allows guests the chance to talk about something other than themselves.

Of course it tends to reveal something about them. Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds selected Kendrick Lamar to headline over perhaps the most influential band of all time in The Beatles.

Scot Bobby Gillespie though was there to reveal something a bit more deeper than his opinion on The Fab Four; he discussed how drugs overshadowed Primal Scream’s early success.

There was a moving episode that saw Shaun and Shaparak Khorsandi in tears of laughter and emotion as they discussed her recent ADHD diagnosis.

The season promises even more excitement, imagination and controversy – with special guests including musical heavyweights such as Paul Weller, Nadine Shah and Rag’n’Bone Man as well as acclaimed actors Maxine Peake and Himesh Patel.

Wrestling With Freddie – iHeart, Spotify

Actor and wrestling enthusiast, Freddie Prinze Jr pulls the curtain back on the world of wrestling in his new podcast, WWFreddie – Wrestling With Freddie.

While fans may know Prinze from his ’90s films such as She’s All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer, his first love is wrestling.

In this show he’ll take listeners on a personal journey sharing stories from his time as a writer for the WWE.

Harsh Reality – Spotify

It was supposed to be a reality show with a twist. In a villa in Ibiza, six guys compete for a cash prize and for the love of the beautiful and mysterious Miriam.

It’s meant to be her big break but this is the era of “cruel reality TV” and the show producers have a different goal: they want to surprise the men with the fact that Miriam is trans.

Harsh Reality is a new six-episode investigative series from Wondery.
