Rhys Darby, Dan Schreiber, David Farrier and 'Buttons' bring you The Cryptid Factor - a show dedicated to the weird and the wonderful, and in particular, Cryptozoology. Hear the team passionately (and often awkwardly) discuss animals yet to be proven by science - like the Mongolian Death Worm, Chupacabra, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster. Though they take the pseudo-science as seriously as they can, they struggle to take themselves seriously at all. Its hosts are comedian & actor Rhys Darby, respected television journalist and documentarian David Farrier, host of top rating podcast 'No Such Thing as a Fish' Dan Schreiber - and Pulling it all together is their best friend, 'Buttons'. If anything goes wrong, it is probably his fault.

Flight of the Conchords (2005)

In 2004, Jemaine Clements and Bret McKenzie created a six-part radio series for BBC Radio 2. Largely improvised, the series was broadcast in September 2005 and based on the band's search for commercial success in London. It featured Rob Brydon as their narrator, Rhys Darby as their manager, and Jimmy Carr as a devoted fan called Kipper. The radio series won Jemaine and Bret the Bronze Sony Radio Academy Award for comedy and led to the development of the HBO show of the same name.
