Publisher's Summary

Broadcaster, writer, philanthroper and one of the first public figures to suggest high-visibility clothing for people manning temporary car parks, the public Alan Partridge is a cherished institution. 

But what of the unseen Alan? 

For the first time, this famously private man welcomes us into his home and audibly deshrouds himself for a fascinating series of podcasts. Over the course of 18 generously durated episodes, Partridge grants us full and unfettered access to his off-screen life (within reason). 

In exchange for a series of payments from Audible, he promises an access-all-areas pass to the nooks and crannies of his hinterland, to reveal a wiser, cleverer, more reflective Alan than many of his more vaunted peers have given him credit for. He then sends the resultant podcasts to Audible ensuring they meet the technical specifications laid down in the contract.

The BRILLIANCE of Steve Coogan

I’ve listened to this “podcast” several times and continue to giggle. If you’re familiar with the Alan Partridge franchise, this is as great as you would expect,

essential listening for an Alan Partridge fan

Loved every minute and would recommend it to any fan of Alan. He has transcended the visual medium and is so vivid in his imagery that there is no.need for one. Laughed out loud more times than I could count.

Terrific, as Coogan always is

Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge is always a treat, and here he proves, yet again, how versatile and real his character is. I really enjoyed listening to this, and I *really* hope they do another outing from the Oasthouse.

Simply genius

"You've still got it Alan, I don't care what they say! 👊"
I'm quoting Jed (Maxwell) of course, who didn't go all fat and steal my pension. But just as "I'm Alan Partridge" 1 & 2 were the best British comedies ever made (alongside Fawlty Towers), this may be the best podcast ever made.
Perhaps I'm just high on the hops from Alan's new Oasthouse, or giddy from the infectious and quite brilliantly performed jingle that bookends each episode. Or perhaps I'm as lucid as Lynn when she contemplates Alan's advice herein of how to gently remove her seatbelt if she finds herself upside down after a massive collision when coming to pick Alan up from a ramble he's got fed up with (which of course has nothing to do with being caught nosing inside a divorcee's garage).
Well yes as you might have gathered, this is rather more than a quick podcast to keep that pension going. It's a very cleverly thought out and extremely well produced "I'm Alan Partridge" 6 hour audio book, and all I can say to sum it up is, lovely stuff.
Well done to all involved.

Coogan is a genius

I think the only thing better than Alan’s Top Gear esque review of Lynn’s dead mother’s stair lift (“Not bad on the pull away... huffs and puffs a bit on the incline...”) or our introduction to his new big brother role with a former inmate (“Every week I spend an hour with a troubled teen, who goes by the name of Daniel... which is his name.”) is the fact that clearly the Alan Partridge writers and team have found a medium that Coogan will be able to run with for years to come. The idea of more of this is audio heaven is bloody lovely stuff.

Vintage Partridge

A great performance from Coogan that shows Partridge at his best, alone and rambling. Several heartfelt stories.

Well Alan, you’ve done it again

A treasure for any true Partridge fan. He doesn’t miss a beat.

I think anyone who enjoys a good ramble from a legendary rambler or, just the most clever comedy from modern masters of social commentary will be thrilled.

The episodes are layered, as with all Coogan/Gibbons projects, and will continue to deliver upon relistening. Cheers Baby Cow

Alan is in top form

Found myself chuckling several times an episode. Get me more Partridge, please. Loved when Alan was leaping to conclusions about a stranger's lifestyle before trespassing into his garage and getting caught. Absolute favorite bit: when going through his assistant's kitchen, says "you can learn a lot about some one from their pots and pans cupboard", then looks inside and admits to himself aloud: "no, you can't".

Brilliant, as always

You know essentially what you're going to get, but it never disappoints. My only concern is that I share some of the same pet peeves as Alan, namely acronyms vs. initializations, and "was sat" masquerading as an active verb when it's clearly passive.

Lovely stuff!

A puckish satire on contempary mores. Whimisical, whilst at the same time pulls no punches.
