Curious Republic is the speech and podcasting arm of Glorious Republic Broadcasting. We find people with stories to tell and great ideas, and help bring them to life. From live music, to science through the medium of comedy, to the madder and more forgotten moments of the past, and travel through little known corners of the world. We make great storytelling happen. 

Amazing stories are nothing without an audience, though. We offer services to assist with podcast production, editing, marketing and sponsorship, to ensure that your voice gets heard.

History is full of the weird and wonderful. From bizarre events to equally odd inventions, barely a day goes by without something incredible (or incredibly stupid) happening around the world. Join Sam Datta, formerly of YouTube's This Is Genius and Truthloader, for a weekly reflection on the bold, the brilliant... 

And the downright strange.
