Two of the UK’s top true crime podcasts, RedHanded and Drunk Women Solving Crimes have joined forces for The Red Nose Day Podcast Mashup, a one-off Comic Relief special in aid of Red Nose Day.
The event, spearheaded by Acast, aims to help raise money to create positive change in the UK and around the world. Other podcast mash ups include:

- Emergency Questions with Joan & Jericha — Dear Joan and Jericha (Julia Davis & Vicki Pepperdine) x RHLSTP (Richard Herring)
- Hip Hop Saved The Horne Section — The Horne Section (Alex Horne) x Hip Hop Saved My Life (Romesh Ranganathan)

In what’s being called “the greatest crossover event in podcasting history”, listeners will hear what happens when two of their favourite Acast Creator Network podcasts are mixed, mingled and mashed up to create new, hilarious shows like they’ve never heard before.
Speaking on their involvement, RedHanded’s Hannah and Suruthi said: “After the past 18 months, people need a helping hand more than ever – and we all need a laugh more than anything! So, we were delighted to take part in raising awareness and money for Red Nose Day 2021!”
While Drunk Women Solving Crime’s Taylor Glenn said: “It’s been soooo much fun taking part in the Acast podcast mash-up for Red Nose Day, and knowing we’re helping to make a difference brings a smile to our faces!”
“Let’s face it, we all need a laugh right now,” says Sam Shetabi, UK Content Director Acast, “Acast couldn’t be prouder to be the true home of UK comedy podcasts, and the biggest and funniest podcasters around. We worked with our friends at Comic Relief to give podcast fans around the world a treat by mashing up some of our favourite shows to raise some laughs that raises money for Red Nose Day this year.”
Samir Patel, CEO, Comic Relief said: “Teaming up with Acast, and working with the biggest and funniest podcasts on the Acast Creator Network is the perfect partnership for Red Nose Day. During these challenging times it’s more important than ever to have a laugh and we’re excited to be bringing everyone some much-needed cheer, and if listeners are able to donate, they will be supporting vulnerable people in the UK and around the world, as we help tackle homelessness, domestic abuse and mental health stigma.”
