Relistening as I’m going to the ParaPodMovie showing in Glasgow (From the beginning Barry... normal people listen from the beginning.)
Forgot how laugh out loud it is. Poor Barry is a bit delusional and Ian has a horribly mean to him, but it works beautifully. The paranormal stuff is great.

My favourite podcast I listen to it all the time and cannot get enough of Barry’s logic and Ian’s hilarious corrections! Would (and do) recommend to everyone and anyone because there is nothing not to love, would give 10000000 out of 5 starts if I could ❤️

I love this podcast so much and wish they’d make another series! They just work so well together and are so funny. I still haven’t found a podcast I like as much as this one.

I’ve listened to this podcast a bit late but it is fantastic. I have genuinely laughed out loud several times, which makes me look insane to the outside world. If this was still a running podcast I would have happily donated money to keep it running!
Give it a listen you won’t regret it😊

The depth and breadth of Barry’s extraordinary mind ensures repeated plays. This is my favourite podcast, bar none.

I heard about this podcast after listening to All Killa No Filla, another one worth listening too. I wasn’t disappointed, just started series 3 and it carries on where mysteries and ghosts left off. With Barry’s views on things and how he struggles to see the difference between reality and not is something to behold. The chemistry between him and Ray is superb although you do end up feeling a little sorry for Barry.
A definite 5stars!

Don’t let my title fool you (it’s an old joke) this podcast is worth inventing 6 stars for. It’s well worth a listen if your a skeptic, a believer, wanting to be spooked, or just up for a laugh. Listen and thank me later 😂

Clever, hilarious with pathos thrown in

i’ve listened from the start of this podcast, and repeat run throughs off the the series are essential for Parapod fans.
Barry and Ian are an amazing pairing, Isn for his logic and resining, Barry for his awkward look on the universe with a child like wonder.
simply the best comedy pod out there.
well done gents, look forward to the movie.
there’s got to be a secret penguin cameo?

Beautiful showcase of Boldsworth’s talents. Sensational comedy. A duo to rival the comedy genius of some of the greats. Sit back, relax and bathe in the warm sunshine of the Boldsworth and Dodds world.

Literally the best podcast!

I’ve listened to these podcasts three times now. It’s brought back to my life the same obsession I had for comedy as a teenager, when I would watch Not the Nine O’clock News, Python, Connolly, Young Ones et al, until the video tape had worn out. Good luck with the Parapod film gentlemen.

Hilarious

The fantastic Ray Peacock plays two great characters of modern British comedy, the sceptical, wise cracking Ian Boldsworth (catchphrase “get life, Barry”) and the Karl Pilkington-beating Barry Dodds. He has the Geordie accent just right, and the below-average-man-in-the-street off pat, just occasionally slipping into Partridge-level cringe-worthiness.

One wants to believe. The other wants him to leave

Barry Dodds; a believer of just about everything. If there's a conspiracy out there, he will find it! Armed with his Poundland ghosthunting equipment and magic (possibly illegal) taxi, he will search the world for proof! Ian, on the other hand, just wants to finish his R2-D2.

Love this podcast. Do not recommend listening to it in public, snorting and nearly peeing yourself in your local town centre is not a good look.

It is an absolute treat hearing Barry present his fairy stories, and even more so hearing Ray thoroughly dismantle all of them.

Between Barry's earnest willingness to believe to believe in anything he reads and Ray's frustrated skepticism and logic we get a pure comedic gem and a brief glimpse as to what the X-Files would have been like if it was set in the North of England. Would have rated this six stars if I could

Maybe my favourite thing ever!

Just finished catching up on all 3 series today (where have I been?) and now I genuinely feel sad that I have nothing to listen to that is as entertaining. Happy I started it, gutted I've finished!

This podcast is wonderful, sadly it has ended after 3 brilliant series where Team Dodds faced off without facts against Team Peacock/Boldsworth and their cynicism
But a film is in the works
Series 1 was about Ghosts and sinister events
Series 2 was mysteries such as Bigfoot
Series 3 was conspiracies including the Moon Landing (1969 Barry 😛) all 3 are worth listening to and starting from the beginning is recommended to hear evolution of Barry

Genius ❤

I listen to so many comedy podcasts, but this is the one that makes me laugh the hardest. Ray and Barry are so funny, and such a brilliant comedy pairing. I love this podcast so much, and can't wait to see what they do next. Now I'm off to listen to them all again.
