Podcasting has taken on a life of its own in recent years, with vast swathes of comedians coming forward with new interview, anecdotal and improv show formats. As this medium has grown, it has become saturated with assorted comedic content. Podcast Picks is a place for MoodyComedy’s comedy podcast recommendations.
Comedians Stevie Martin and Tessa Coates are on the long road to adulthood. Aren’t we all? Regardless of age, the feeling that we are imposters in a world where everyone else seems to know what they are doing is certainly a common phenomenon. Stevie and Tessa get it; they’ve been there, and they’re not out of the fog yet (is anyone, ever?).
Nobody Panic is a podcast that aims to take big, scary, mysterious adult topics and dismantle them into manageable, less heavy chunks to be addressed.
They approach some really difficult topics, from break ups to problems in the work place, with a light-hearted, can-do attitude. And where their advice in these areas is well-researched and reinforced by genuine personal experience, this makes room for their discussion on lighter topics to delve slightly into the realm of madness. The listener is drawn into this pair’s longterm friendship, and hearing the two crack each other up to the point of hysterics is often an episode highlight.
Both comics relish being the idiot in any given situation, and this ability to laugh at themselves is a huge selling point for the podcast. The pair are both motivational and supportive, and yet neither claims to have all, if any, of the answers.
Nobody Panic is the perfect podcast to listen to if you’re in need of a pick-me-up or simply require a dose of motivation to do that thing you said you were going to do. Martin and Coates shine a light of positivity on topics that might usually make you sigh or even shudder, with sharp wit and playful humour.
