About SuperPod

The Event

After the success of the first SuperPod we decided we just had to do it again! It took a while to come up with a plan (I blame having a baby) but we have now set on dates of 7th/8th March 2020, the weekend prior to Sport Relief.

SuperPod 2020 will have a sporting twist, in line with the charity we’re raising money for, but will also feature comedy shows and sporting versions of some of the shows that appeared back in 2017.

So far we have confirmed appearances from old friends Stacey’s Pop Culture Parlour, Dredgeland and AhhGee. Plus Legend in My Sparetime host Matt Lees will be hosting a special introduction to Pro Wrestling, Ministry of Swooping (the spiritual successor to Dead Piett Society) will be appearing and Gallifrey Stands will be involved too.

Joining these familiar voices will be sports related shows SportSpiel and Maul Over, with many more to be announced in the coming months.

SuperPod 2020 will be a 2 day festival of podcasts, and we’re hoping to attract a couple of big name podcasts to end each day, with tickets being sold for those shows once the shows and venue are confirmed. So stay tuned for more information!

The Organiser

Hi, I’m Al, the man behind this whole nonsense. I am the host of the Ministry of Swooping: a Fake News Podcast, and formerly hosted the Dead Piett Society Podcast.

As well as podcasting I’m also a keen football, baseball and wrestling fan. I’m keen on comics, country music and chocolate as well as burgers, bunnies and bourbon. And apparently alliteration. I’m a husband to Kitty, dad to Hunter and a Pointless finalist.

I first came up with the idea of the SuperPod in late 2016 after listening to a 24 hour charity podcast. I organised the SuperPod in 2017 mostly on my own and I want to make SuperPod 2020 an even bigger and better event, raising even more money than last time.
