David Mitchell’s popular Soapbox podcast series returns this week for a new 22-episode run.
As before, the Peep Show star will use each week’s podcast to sound off about a subject which has got under his skin.
The new run is available from today (Thursday 14th June) across a range of platforms including YouTube, Facebook, iTunes and Guardian.co.uk and as downloaded apps for iOS and Android smartphones.
Jamie Lennox, ChannelFlip’s Content Director said, “I’m always excited to work with David on Soapbox, but this season’s looking particularly tremendous: when you have to keep cutting camera because the crew’s laughing, that’s a great sign. By take 8 that can get pretty irritating, but it’s still a great sign…”
To coincide with the new series Dell and podcast producers ChannelFlip will be running a competition to find the “next David Mitchell”.
The competition, which launches on July 5th, invites fans to submit their own comedy videos to for the chance to win a year’s development deal including coaching with David Mitchell himself and a £10,000 prize.
“We’re thrilled to be working with ChannelFlip again to sponsor Season IV of Soapbox” said James Griffiths, Consumer and Small Business Marketing Director at Dell.
“In today’s ever-changing media landscape, we’re always on the lookout for new ways to enable our audience to get closer to the content they love, whether that’s music, films, games – or in the case of Soapbox – an irreverent rant from David Mitchell.”
Previous episodes of David Mitchell’s Soap Box are available to buy on DVD.
