Award Winning podcast ‘No Such Thing As A Fish’ turns 10

Hosts Dan, James, Anna and Andy are celebrating their 10th anniversary as podcasters with a world tour…

In 2014, four nerds gathered around their microphones to share the most interesting facts they’d learned that week. Now, 30,000 facts and almost as many bad puns later, Dan, James, Anna and Andy are celebrating their 10th anniversary as podcasters with a world tour.

To mark this announcement, they have pulled together their top ten facts from the last 3,653 days. In no particular order here they are…

And for a 10th birthday bonus: Blowing out the candles on a cake increases the number of bacteria on it by 1,400%.

For this celebratory tour, the award-winning podcasters will take to the stage in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, beginning at the Edinburgh Playhouse this August. Every night will be a brand new show, featuring the most extraordinary and hilarious facts they have recently learned.

Averaging a million listens worldwide every week, No Such Thing As A Fish has been one of the UK’s most popular podcasts for a decade, and is consistently in iTunes’ list of top ten most downloaded shows. As well as winning multiple awards from Amazon, Apple, Chortle and Spotify, the gang have also spawned three bestselling books, two BBC TV series and – their crowning achievement – an exclusive-to-vinyl podcast recording. On previous sell-out tours, they’ve filled the Sydney Opera house, the London Palladium, and the Grove Theatre in Dunstable.
