The podcasters, both from Shrewsbury, began their marathon at 10pm on 27th September, recording and releasing a new podcast on the hour, every hour, right through until 10pm on Wednesday 28th, with no sleep.
Tim and Simon’s Podathon gained an army of followers across the world and found itself on iTunes, as one of the top 20 comedy podcasts in the country, by the time the marathon had finished.
“We like to keep our shows light and funny, the real challenge for The Podathon was keeping the podcast funny when we had been awake for 30 hours” said Simon, of the challenge.
The pair, who recorded The Podathon from Tim’s flat in Shrewsbury, have set a target of raising £1,000 for The Alzheimer’s Society.
“£600 is a lot of money, but we know we can raise more, if every listener donated just a pound we would smash that target to pieces, and probably raise a lot more” Said Tim, of the money raised so far.
Tim and Simon are already successful in the podcasting world with their other podcast ‘Tim and Simon’s Brain Spill’, which has now been downloaded around 100,000 times and has itself been featured on the iTunes podcast page.

Swimming in a sea of shit, standing out in a crowded market place.
In this talk I will take a look at three leading brands, and how they stand out in a crowded market place, and are able to charge much more than their competitors for a similar product and still make them happy. But be able to do this on a large scale and be in the mainstream.
