Springleaf: James Acaster

London Podcast Festival

Please note, this page is for tickets to watch a live stream of the event online. Ticket holders will be able to watch the performance back on demand until Sat 24 Sep.


Undercover cop Pat Springleaf (more widely known by his covert name: James Acaster) talks to Mike Wozniak about his ambitions to break into true crime podcasting.

James Acaster is the covert stand-up comedian persona of undercover cop Pat Springleaf. Everyone knows that. And as it’s obligatory for all comedians to have a podcast these days, Pat wants in.

When Pat was undercover, he wore his wire 24-7-365. Or 366 if it was a leap year.

In this one-off event for the London Podcast Festival, he talks to Mike Wozniak about the true-crime podcast he’s working on, using the wire recordings he’s amassed over years of infiltrating criminal gangs.
