A is For...

A is For...

By Soho Radio

A is For is an educational(ish) rampage through the alphabet with Marika Hackman, Gina Miller and Jelly Denniston. You'll learn things you never knew (and never wanted to) as we 'research' a diverse spread of topics one letter at a time.  From autopsies to cheese, eels to hangovers, we’ve got it covered. Not for the faint of butt, this podcast will expose you to more than your five-a-day of toilet humour and inane drivel, but you might just learn something fascinating along the way.
