2020 - 2023

In the Lap of the Pods Queen Podcast ran from 2020 to 2023, lasting for 3.5 years. All episodes are still available and include interviews with Peter Hince (Ratty), Fred Mandel and David Quantick. Check back on the website for blogs and writings from us and listeners.


A Queen podcast of The Magic Kind

"A great podcast for Queen fans. Paul, David and Joe delve into each Queen studio album with enjoyable and insightful chat about each track. Their love of Queen comes across, but they’re not afraid to slag off the odd arrangement, ludicrous lyric or most of The Miracle album."

Insightful and interesting

"This is a podcast featuring three pals talking about music they genuinely love, and finding new insights as they revisit Queen’s back catalogue. It’s the closest thing that you can get to being in the pub with your mates chatting about your favourite albums."

Great stuff!!

"One of my all time favorite bands and quickly becoming one of my favorite podcasts! Love the info, the banter and the humor!"


David, Paul and Joe are three passionate Queen fans from Glasgow, Scotland that think this band’s music should be discussed more. We give praise to the the four geniuses that are John, Roger, Brian and Freddie but we also give criticism when it is due. Our honest and objective approach is hopefully the reason that you enjoy listening to these podcasts. You don’t have to agree with us either, we sometimes don’t agree with each other!
