Get some Catharsis with Alice and Tiff!

Hello Garglers, we will be back with a regular show next week. But while Alice is in Adelaide we have something different for you this week, namely Alice's appearance on Catharsis - Tiff Stevenson's wonderful podcast from The Bugle stable. Tiff serves as a massively unqualified therapist for her guest's old grudges, gripes and beefs, as they look together for catharsis from life's nagging grumbles. If you enjoy, please explore the feed to find more fantastic guests such as Sara Pascoe, Alison Spittle, Dane Baptiste, Josh Gondelman, Alfie Brown, Ria Lina and many more. Next week's episode will be of particular interest to listeners of The Bugle. Hope you enjoy and see you all next week for more vital non-political satire.Please note that Catharsis contains bleep-free swears. Well, that particular word is bleeped, but the other ones aren't.
