Mel Giedroyc is Quilting

Mel Giedroyc is Quilting

By Somethin' Else

Mel Giedroyc is quilting. No really, she’s making a quilt.

 

Each week on this brand new podcast follow along as Mel Giedroyc and her presenter pal Andy Bush add to their patchwork quilt with new squares of material donated by friends, famous types and most importantly the listeners! They’ll find out the stories behind the fabrics, develop their sewing skills and naturally, have a big old chat. And a cup of tea. And probably some biscuits. 


A Somethin' Else production.

Introducing... Please Tell Me A Story

Hello Quilting fans! Here's a new show from our team... Omid tells his story to Abi. Abi tells Omid’s story to Sean, then Sean to Kai, Kai to Sikisa and Sikisa to Helen… each time with hilarious misrememberings, improvisations, stumbles, fumbles and laughs. Six comedians have a funny story to tell. Can they pass the story along the chain without completely twisting the tale? But this isn’t like the game you play at school where you only whisper short sentences. Each episode is a complete, beautifully written story, with each retelling getting funnier (and weirder!) as it passes on. And boy, does season one of Please Tell Me A Story feature an all star comedy cast: Omid Djalili, Abi Clarke, Seán Burke, Kai Samra, Sikisa, and Helen Bauer. Join them as the story gets weird…  A Somethin’ Else & Sony Music Entertainment production.

Touching Jochen’s Velvet

Andy and Mel add more patches to their wonderful quilt, with some rich velvet from listener Jochen and a piece of a bitter sweet footballing memory for comedian Lee Mack.

The Guilt Patch

Andy and Mel make a start on their quilting journey by prepping the first three patches.
