According to Deadline, Audible today launched a free podcast called Locked Together, featuring comedic duos such as Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who have appeared in a few movies together including Shaun of the Dead, Paul, and Hot Fuzz, as they discuss how they’re handling the lockdown and share moments of levity from the last few weeks spent shut indoors.
Guests for Locked Together will also include Jimmy Carr and Katherine Ryan; Sarah Millican and Jason Manford; Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French; Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney; Tez Ilyas and Sindhu Vee; Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield; and People Just Do Nothing‘s MC Grindah, DJ Beats, DJ Steves, and Chabuddy G.
“It’s a strange and challenging time for a lot of people at the moment, but this series will go a small ways to helping raise money for a number of important causes,” said Horgan. “It was a real pleasure to take part and I’m happy to see companies like Audible doing their bit.”
“Working on this podcast gave me the perfect excuse to take a break from eating biscuits, panicking and ignoring the housework, and have a chat and a laugh with Jason for a while. It’s only a podcast, it’s not going to change the world, but hopefully, it’ll give you a laugh and breather from whatever your circumstances,” added Millican.
Carr said, “Unfortunately this time, laughter is not the best medicine. But hopefully, these conversations will help people feel a little lighter as they listen to Katherine Ryan and I chatting nonsense about the strange, strange times that we find ourselves in.”
Audible will be donating a fixed fee to a different charity for each episode of the series.
