“It sounds like Adam and Jo are having fun, at least.”

Adam & Jo are gorgeous to listen to and made me laugh so much I don’t know how I got any words out – please subscribe to their amazing series https://t.co/rbSGW4PXdm

“This is a perfect public engagement project because it is popularly intelligible whilst also proving intellectually credible.”
A Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Literature at York St John University on Satire: Deaths, Births, Legacies.
Just to say I listened to the first 2 episodes of the satire podcast last night and am now a fan. Please keep pumping out those episodes. (Stewart Lee doesn’t know what he’s missing.)

“The Smith and Waugh Talk About Satire podcast is an innovative way to encapsulate cutting-edge academic research, current events and lols. Both lecturers have incited my interests for postgraduate study and provided insight into what I hope my future career looks like. They are incredible minds, tutors and humans and fully deserve this award.”

I listened to @SatireNoMore podcast last night hosted by @elementaladam and @waugh_JS and (a) it was brilliant; (b) my colleagues-who-are-also-my-friends are so funny; (c) you both sound so good on the airwaves – I think you should get a radio show; (d) can I be a guest?

Smith and Waugh (aka @elementaladam@waugh_JS) talking satire have made my evening. Horatian satire, Ali G and George III doing a massive poo are just a few of the topics covered… https://t.co/rt8LM0SkGj

Greatly enjoying this podcast by my very talented colleagues @elementaladam and @waugh_JS on satire and abusing your audience. “It’s supposed to hurt”! But I promise you, it doesn’t. They are very charming. #SatireNoMorehttps://t.co/m38LTxnl3y

I thought it was great. Looking forward to the next episode and for the one in which Armando Iannucci makes a guest appearance.

It was a wonderful podcast indeed! Satire had also a contemporary garment with parodies online on youtube and what have you. By the way, is their a relation between satire and dark comedy if I may ask?

Really enjoyed the first episode of this new podcast! “What even is satire?” Helpful for anyone (like me) trying to wrap their head around q’s of satire, humour, offence, as well as the history of satire & its future… https://t.co/c1RGgVLYbq— Fiona Milne (@WordsWhich) February 20, 2019
This looks like an extremely relevant account — and podcast — for those in my “Roman Poetry: Satire” class. https://t.co/CSpLyUdB9G— Dr Aven McMaster (@AvenMcMaster) February 26, 2019
Thanks for this mention! @SatireNoMore’s podcasts have been really helpful in my recent thinking about satire – not least the Auden quote from the interview with Andrew Doyle, which I hadn’t come across before. https://t.co/psTvuERMPW— Emma Sullivan (@EmmaLMSullivan) February 24, 2020
