A podcast about the theatrics of life and the lives of the theatrical. 


Taking Turns To Talk is a brand spanking new shiny podcast talking about the theatrics of life and the lives of the theatrical. Our smashing host Gordon Cooper chats with a whole bunch of truly wonderful folks who have come to talk to us about all manner of things including professional BMX-ing, competitive Karaoke, Pontins, being a Doula and then we squeeze in a minute or two to talk shop about the wonderful and (sometimes not so) glamorous world of show-business. 

If you want to get in touch then please do drop us a line at 

Thanks for listening!
