Hi lovely people.

Some of you may recall we took open submissions gags for our sci-tech-comedy podcast 'History Makers' back in 2018...and now we're back for a second series!

This time we've got a new name and an updated format, with Lucy Rogers, Bec Hill and Harriet Braine exploring the past, present and future of some of the hottest topics in tech.

If you'd like to write some jokes for us (no sketches, sorry!), then follow the link below for full submission details. http://www.whydidthechicken.com/productions

If you'd like to listen to Series 1 to get a feel for the show, then click here: www.designspark.podbean.com

And if you'd like to be in the audience for Series 2 then click here! https://www.facebook.com/events/375866206529346/

Looking forward to reading your stuff.

Thanks everyone who've submitted so far.

There's still time if you'd like to send us your gags for Series 2!

"Several comedy writers from the 1970s have been in touch to say that if sexist, racist, misogynistic and other offensive jokes will not be accepted, we can stick the ****ing show up our ****ing a***s. Thanks for that, lads."

Thanks all to those who submitted! We've now recorded the live shows and will be merrily editing away for the next few weeks. We will be in touch with anyone who makes the cut in early May.

UPDATE!

E-mails have now gone out to everyone who was successful in getting a gag on the next series of The DesignSpark Podcast!

Congratulations to everyone who made it and commiserations to those who didn't. We read EVERY gag sent to us and quite a few made the shortlist, so please don't be downhearted if you didn't get an e-mail.

The show will be launched May 20th on iTunes, Podbean and Spotify, so please do listen in - it's a cracking show!

All the best,
