The origins of Global Pillage

In episode 9 of the Guilty Feminist, on the topic of representation, Deborah Frances-White decided to pilot a new comedy panel show which would champion diversity in all its forms. The pilot was so successful and so much fun to do that we had to make it into a series. That series is launching soon, but before it does, here's a reminder of where it all started...

Global Pillage

Global Pillage is a brand new comedy panel show podcast all about idiom, culture, customs and norms.

  • What do the Japanese mean when they accuse someone of "having a cat on their head"?
  • What do your friends make you do if you're unmarried by thirty in Germany?
  • What did the acronym NORWICH mean (the equivalent of sexting jargon) if sent between World War Two sweethearts?

All the oddness of humanity is explored in this hilarious new show where TWO TEAMS OF COMEDIANS take on the HIVE MIND OF THE AUDIENCE. This show is about the diversity of human experience. Come with us as we pillage the globe for the strange but true ways of the human race.

Comedians booked for the first series include Sara Pascoe, Nish Kumar, Felicity Ward, Yasmine Akram, Sofie Hagen, Bisha K. Ali and Sarah Bennetto.

The show is hosted by Deborah Frances-White - co-host of The Guilty Feminist Podcast and from Radio 4's Deborah Frances-White Rolls the Dice. With Ned Sedgwick in Pedants Corner and Mark Hodge on keyboard.
