Anecdotally Podcast with Greer Riddell and Bethan Poyser

It's the year 2009 and at a Grammar School in Dover, Greer and Bethan probably aren't listening to their Latin teacher and instead eating a whole cheesecake behind a book in a lesson. Fast forward a decade later, Bethan is procrastinating from her PhD and Greer is trying to stop social media making her feel depressed so they decided to keep in touch by starting a podcast. Anecdotally is a new comedy podcast hosted by childhood friends Greer Riddell and Bethan Poyser. New episodes released weekly, subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and more.
