An irreverent comedy podcast with a thrilling and half-thought-out novelty twist, Regular Features makes a solemn guarantee to its listeners never to repeat the same feature twice. Each week is a new race to creative rock bottom as four hosts who should know better regale one another with fresh stories of bathroom mishaps, act out their hastily written Doctor Who scripts, quiz one another on the subtle differences between volcanoes and sex offenders, or simply abuse deserving strangers over the internet.
