Hootville Free Range Radio

If you like Anglican and The Atheist you may enjoy Brett's other show.

Hootville Free Range Radio ruthlessly exploits a rotating cast of regulars including serial wife and biographer Sash Fong, grumpy young woman Kylie Northover, corporate culture thinker Jason Clarke and pet philosopher Dr Rod Graham.

The show takes in politics, pop culture and assorted items in a tongue in cheek manner. It throws in Rants on Demand, poetry and updates from the African nation of Togo (just because he can). It is smart, funny, fresh and better produced than most podcasts. It is released weekly and runs around 30 minutes.
