The ParaPod


Barry, along with level headed, voice of reason Ian Boldsworth, is a presenter of The Parapod.. a comedy podcast the delves into the world of the paranormal, mysteries and conspiracy theories.

Barry argues on the side of ghosts existing, the Loch Ness Monster (and African tribes) being alive and well in Scotland and even crowbars in the fact that Keanu Reeves is a vampire.  Ian exhaustively argues against the evidence which leads to one of the funniest podcasts around.


The Podcast was nominated for the Chortle Comedy Awards in 2016 and 2017, nominated for Ockham Award for Excellence in Skepticism 2017 and winner of the Midlands Comedy Awards 2017.

The Parapod is available for free on ITunes and Soundcloud.

If you’ve not heard any of Barry, or Ian, in the past this is a great place to start.  If you are already a fan then you know what comedy gold to expect.

If you want to know a bit more about how The ParaPod came about have a read of this post on Ian Boldsworth’s great website. He details his early dealings with Barry and how the idea came about as a consequence of Barry not taking a phone call and the resulting punishment..

The boys have recently filmed and released The ParaPod Movie, the first podcast to be made into a feature length film! And because Barry is now in a film he has his own IMDB page!
