Comedian Urzila Carlson launches That’s Enough Already podcast

Editor & Content Director

Comedian and judge on Australia’s version of The Masked Singer, Urzila Carlson, is putting her hotel quarantine-induced frustrations and boredom to good use and launching That’s Enough Already, a new podcast to talk about all things big and small which are ticking people off.

Carlson spent 11 weeks of 2020 in hotel quarantine, and she’s “well and truly had enough”.

Her podcast will feature guests including British comedian Russell Howard dissecting a life in lockdown, The Daily Show regular Ronny Chieng revealing why cancel culture is a myth, performer and media personality Julia Morris dishing the dirt on the radio producer who called her unprofessional, and Kiwi comedian and actor Rhys Darby sharing why people should be required to have a license to use the internet.

“From the bigger societal issues like what the f*ck to do about COVID deniers to everyday inconveniences, Urzila and her guests unpack the sticky issues we can all agree should really be put out to pasture,” the podcast’s distributor Acast said.

Acast’s ANZ’s content director, Guy Scott-Wilson, who appeared on Radio Today’s recent Podcast Power Players list, added: “With everything that’s been going on in the world recently, we’ve all had a lot to moan about. And with podcasting continuing to provide some much-needed escapism to more listeners than ever, this is the perfect format for getting it all off your chest. Urz loves a good moan and, clearly, she’s in great company.

“Acast are delighted to be providing a safe space for Urz and her friends to vent.”

The 13-part series kicks off from March 1.

I swear every other article on this website is about a new podcast.

    No need to swear – you are absolutely correct.

Maybe I should start a podcast about the amount of new podcasts being featured on this website.

They’re a dime a dozen these days.

Last I checked it’s radio today not podcast today…seriously guys we don’t come here for podcasts. Know your market and stop just publishing every press release.

@Michael & @George

Podcasting is very quickly becoming the new norm for an industry so it makes perfect sense for new podcasts to be reported on in a shifting media environment.

@George Michael

No problem with reporting on podcasts. It’s just the number of them.
For instance late last week there were four articles in a row. ALL of them were about new podcasts.
On a site called RADIO Today.

Maybe it’s time to make some changes on this site (e.g. it’s name) to reflect the broader coverage of the audio industry?

You mean Audio today.

Yes, exactly. Something like that.
Alternatively, there could be a dedicated section on the website for podcast info and news.
Like there is on that other industry website.
Then the main page doesn’t get cluttered up with press releases about podcasts.

Sorry. Just to clarify.
I should have said put those press releases on the podcasting section on this website.
I’d forgotten there was one as it all goes on the main page anyway.
If it’s a new podcast by a huge name in the industry, sure, put it on the main page.

    Hi Michael,

    Goodness, the amount of comments you’re now posting about this is beginning to rival the number of podcast stories we’ve written.

    Feedback always welcome, and it’s been noted, but it feels we’re going around in circles now. I’ll come back to you with our solution, but for now, feel free to avoid these stories and only read the ones which interest you.

    Thanks,
    Vivienne – Radio Today

I was going to say I’m not going to comment further. It’s gone on too long.
But people keep replying & mentioning me by name.

I’ll do you all a favour and only go to that other industry website from now on.

Vivienne, you do seem to be easily riled by readers’ comments. I’ve been visiting this website since it started. Editors making comments was VERY rare.
Anyway, it’s your website, comment all you like.
I’d appreciate if you didn’t post this comment.

Thank you.
