Yes you did read the title properly and yes IT IS a podcast. Now if your a fan of books such as 50 Shades Of Grey then this podcast probably isn’t for you however, if you are a fan of comedy and taking the Micky out of 50 shades then this really IS the podcast for you.

Meet Jamie Morton, he found out recently that his 60 year old father decided to write a porno. Inspired by other books of erotica and his own fantasies he decides to write a book called Belinda Blinks. How does his son Jamie deal with teh revelation? No, he does not ignore it, instead he decides to sit down around his kitchen table and read a chapter each week to the public and to his friends who join him – James Cooper and BBC Radio 1’s Alice Levine.

HIs father writes the name under another name, an authors name of Rocky Flintstone which already creates hilarity and sort of already tells the listener the level as to what they are about to hear. The basic thing to know about the story is that it follows the main character Belinda, starting work at a sales company that sells pots and pans. Story wise thats all you need to know.

Now the thing that makes this podcast hilarious is that as Jamie reads the book, his friends will intercept and criticise or discuss what they hear and the reactions and outcomes are very funny. Now, as the title of the podcast states, it is a book about porn so it is explicit in its descriptions about porn so if you are looking for something clean, then this really isn’t the podcast for you.

I downloaded this podcast to listen to for the blog before I did my commute home from work and then listened to the first episode on the train. Really bad idea, it was so funny from the get go i was finding it very hard not to laugh out loud in a quiet carriage. It is very funny that you really want to do a massive belly laugh for some of it. The podcast is only onto its second episode (with the third one out today). If you want a burst of laughter in your life which is rude at the same time then I really reccommend this podcast.
