Independent podcast company Acast has released its third-annual day of podcast mashups in partnership with UK charity Comic Relief to raise money for Red Nose Day 2023.
The episodes are now available across all podcast platforms, and feature bonus mashup episodes of some of the UK’s top podcasts from the Acast Creator Network.
This year’s line-up includes Off Menu and Films To Be Buried With in a special episode titled ‘Menus To Be Buried With Judgement Day’ for the third consecutive year, Dane Baptiste Questions Everything & Ain’t Got A Clue in ‘Ain’t Got A Question’, Drunk Women Solving Crime & Moon Under Water in ‘Drunk Women Solving The Moon Under Water’, and Betwixt The Sheets & The Gossip Gays in ‘Betwixt The Gossip Gays’.
“We are excited to be teaming up with Acast for the third year running and seeing some of the biggest podcasts in the UK collaborate in the most brilliant and unexpected ways for Red Nose Day,” said Comic Relief chief executive Samir Patel. “We hope listeners enjoy these special one-off takes on their favourite shows, and our enormous thanks go to Acast and all the podcasts involved who are using the power of laughter to help to raise life-changing money this Red Nose Day. It’s never felt more needed to come together and make a difference.”
