The Odditorium is a fortnightly podcast that explores the fringes of culture; its mavericks and pranksters, adventurers and occultists, artists, comics, eroticists and even the odd chef. It mixes together the live immediacy of The Moth, the insight of RadioLab and a very English sense of the profane, the profound and the absurd.
Each podcast features a guest speaker recorded before a live audience, somewhere in the UK. The series originated as an occasional programme on Resonance 104.4FM in the Summer of 2014, the Odditorium launched as a stand alone podcast in January 2015 and has recently concluded its first season. After its release it spent the first month in the iTunes Arts and Culture top twenty, and has gathered an audience of thousands.
Episodes of Series one of The Odditorium was downloaded 40,000 times during its 17 episode run between January and August 2015.
