My Time Capsule

Cast Off Productions

A podcast that asks guests, such as Stephen Fry, David Mitchell, Caroline Quentin, Ross Noble, Lee Mack, Arabella Weir & Rob Brydon, for five things which they’d like to put in a Time Capsule. They can choose anything from an item, to a memory, a film or even a country. Four of them are things they want to preserve but one has to be something they’re happy to lock away and never have to think about again. Hosted by Michael Fenton Stevens. Podcast of the Week in The Times & The Guardian. @fentonstevens @MyTCpod Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
