About

This is the home page of the Overnight Underground News. It’s a newsy news blip updated daily, most of the time. Hey, we try. The Overnight Underground News Blip is news, yes, but it’s also parody.

The podcast is hosted by John Ford, that’s me. I have a broadcast background and more than a couple of decades in that biz. I’ve included a short bio below. These days I spend my day in my home studio recording voice overs, so I already have the equipment to record all this nonsense and the media damaged mind to twist and torture the news to my own devices. Nothing is sacred on the Overnight Underground News. Everyone is a fair target, and targets they will be.

Thanks for listening and visiting. Please subscribe to the Overnight Underground, so you won’t miss a second of this nonsense.
