Had a great time Skyping with Alice Fraser, comedian and podcast.  From Australia, but based in London, she is a regular panelist on The Bugle podcast, hosts her own daily news satire podcast called The Last Post, and just released a new special on Amazon Prime called Savage.  In addition to discussing satire, religion, and all fo her projects, she describes how comedy has shifted over the years be more concerned about comedy might be affecting some people negatively and also we discuss the difference between American style comedy club comedy and Festival style solo show comedy (like Edinburgh Fringe, where she regularly appears).  This episode also includes an update from the rabbit hutch and my rant about how different religious groups are responding to the coronavirus by either not meeting (faith healers) or meeting anyway (some evangelicals).  Plus, more details about upcoming performances of the Comical Heathen Live Show.
