Recorded on: 8th September 2018
Recorded at: Nick and Benji's

Nick and Benji have been presenting the Big Finish Podcast together now for over a year. The podcast itself has been around for a number of years, with a number of presenters, but Nick seems to have stuck with it the longest, mainly because he's been with Big Finish since the very beginning, back in 1998.

Benji's addition to the team has brought with it an extra injection of showmanship and - dare we say it? - madcap humour. As well as Nick and Benji's shared love of the classic Doctor Who story Death to the Daleks, many other strange topics of conversation have bubbled up to the surface across the months.

Benji's musicianship is very much in evidence, with guest appearances of the kazoo and jaw harp being something of a regular feature. More recently, there's been a kalimba, a harmonica and some cow bells provided by Nick.

From time to time, listeners send in some really great images to the podcast, and you can find some of them below...

If you haven't yet heard the Big Finish Podcast, here are some of the other themes and conversations you can look forward to... Field Marshal Montgomery, the 'Singing Man' from the 1950s, catchphrases like 'Stop Don't Move!', 'Buck up!' and 'Don't tell my trousers!' and much, much more... (frighteningly more)

There are, of course, lashings of behind-the-scenes and upcoming news items, as well as fullsome comments by our loyal listeners, via the Listeners' Emails address

The Big Finish Podcast is released every week, officially on Mondays, but sneakily on Sundays. You can download or stream it from its place on the home page or catch it here in its official Podcast Range, where it will usually pop up on Mondays.
