Jo’s Zealot Podcast Goes Mental
28th September 2017
My old friend Jo Thornely hit #1 in the iTunes comedy charts recently with ‘Zealot’ , her podcast exploring the cults you know and love, and a few you might have missed.
You can find the full episode list here.
I recorded Episode 5 with Jo a few months ago. It’s about the Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh, in which Jo and I have a great time exploring the wacky world of 80’s bio-terrorism, make bad jokes about the Indian city ‘Pune’ and invent a nursing home called ‘Tough Titties Meadows’.
The Bhagwans right-hand woman was Sheila, who you might remember from her classic burn on 60 Minutes’ Mike Willesee: ‘good luck to you and your pimps.’
The jokes, they write themselves.
Recently Jo’s podcast has been rocketing up the iTunes comedy charts, which is an amazing achievement for a lady whose prior career high was smelling Jermaine Jackson (olfactory report: like new-car leather from a cow that only ate gardenias.) SO PROUD of Jo! She had an idea, she went and made a thing, and now the thing is going crackers.
Go out, comrades! Go out and make the thing! Be like Jo!
My favourite iTunes review: ‘Hilarious, crude and immature. It’s absolutely perfect.’ Which is probably how I would describe my darling old mate Jo.
Go, listen, subscribe, review, eat the t-shirt, sign up to sign your autumn years at Tough Titties, and enjoy!
