Your Next Podcast: Hooked on Freddie

The strange tale of a Bottlenose dolphin

6:00 AM GMT+1 on October 19, 2023

    Every week on Your Next Podcast I pick a great new show for you to check out. If you follow our Your Next Podcast feed it means that there will always be something new to listen to on your podcast app of choice.

    This week on the show is just one of those stories which you just couldn't make up. The podcast I'm recommending is Hooked on Freddy, the bizarre story of a bottlenose dolphin called Freddy from Ambleside in the Lake District, an animal rights activist called Alan and a very unexpected accusations.

    And one of the many things I love about this series is the host reporter Becky Milligan. She's an exceptionally talented broadcaster who actually started her career as a student reporter in Ambleside and even swam with Freddy back in the day. Amazingly she actually has the original recordings.

    The story pivots around Alan who has devoted a large part of his life to freeing captive dolphins but when Alan's friendship with Freddy turns against him, Alan finds himself in the fight of his life.
