Beware of the Leopard: the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy podcast

By Mark Steadman, Jon Bounds, Jon Hickman, Danny Smith

Jon Bounds, Jon Hickman, Danny Smith and Mark Steadman are writing new additions to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the book with the famous words "Don't Panic" written in large, friendly letters on the cover. This smart, funny podcast fuses real-world observation with a writing style Adams fans have sorely missed. With each topic, the panel of authors, podcasters and performers present an essay in the style of a Hitchhiker's Guide entry, which is then discussed in a format that fans of BBC radio comedy know well, but with a 21st century twist. Whether you've only read the first book, seen the film, or are completely new to the world of Arthur Dent and his friends, Beware of the Leopard will make you chuckle, and if you're a really cool frood, you'll love the team's attention to detail. And if you're new to Beware of the Leopard, check out our previous seasons, in which the team discussed every known thing in Douglas Adams' sprawling universe (or the Whole Sort of General Mishmash, as it's known). New episodes of Beware of the Leopard come out monthly. Share and enjoy!
