Publisher Description

Radio Morpork is a podcast about Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books. Colm, Steve and Rose work their way through the series one book at a time, discussing and ranking the books as they go along. A thoroughly silly but deadly serious endeavor.

Further Information


To be added.


  • Radio Morpork was the first podcast to complete the journey through all forty-one Discworld novels. Episode 43 discussing The Shepherd's Crown was released on the 16th of June, 2021, and remains the final episode of the show.
  • The podcast is notable for persisting through a couple of long hiatuses: no new episodes were released between February 2016 and June 2017, and between May 2018 and April 2019. It's for this reason we list podcasts that have gone quiet as "inactive", rather than "dead" or "finished".



The table below indexes all episodes of this podcast. They are listed by default in release order, and use the podcast's own numbering scheme.
