Sarah’s podcast

Besides creating, writing and starring in her own TV series, Frayed, Sarah also has a podcast Sarah Kendall: Australian Trilogy on BBC Radio 4.

Sarah Kendall: Australian Trilogy is onto its second series and judging by its popularity, the comedian will most likely continue to record more episodes. The podcast sees Sarah telling tales of her youth living in Australia. It was described by The Guardian as covering everything “from astronomy via teenage friendship to hamster care“.

The comedian has had huge success in her solo ventures, both on and off-screen. Many fans called for a second series of Frayed, however, they’ll have to make do with seeing Sarah on Channel 4’s comedy gameshow for now!
