Glenn Robbins and Dave O’Neil are ‘Somehow Related’ to 9Podcasts

Fan favourite comedy podcast 'Somehow Related' is marking its 300th episode today; celebrating at its new home, 9Podcasts.



16 April 2024 – Hosted by legendary Aussie comedians, Glenn Robbins and Dave O’Neil, Somehow Related is the show that proves even the most seemingly random subjects are in fact related – somehow.

Ever wondered if there’s a secret connection between the Nazi regime and Fanta; the Italian Republic and bright red underpants, or even greyhounds and The Bible? Well, wonder no more.

In each hilarious episode, Robbins and O’Neill cycle through what they know about the topics, reminisce, sometimes call on help from friends and indulge with a little thinking music before giving it all to guess the link.

Co-host and self-declared expert, Glenn Robbins said: “Along with our trusty sidekick Sam, every episode is a journey of discovery where we uncover fascinating facts and nuggets of knowledge that will, if nothing else, arm you with something interesting to say when things go quiet at your next dinner party.”

Fellow self-described expert, Dave O’Neil said: “Sure, we might talk about ourselves more than the topic, and sure, we might drop the odd inappropriate joke, and sure, we might even reenact historical moments with questionable accuracy – but don’t hold it against us, we’re giving it our best shot.”

Somehow Related has been downloaded more than 4 million times over it’s 300-episode run, and featured some of Australia’s most-loved comedians to help connect the dots, including Sam Pang, Kate Langbroek, Ross Noble, Lawrence Mooney.

Some of the discoveries made on Somehow Related include:

• Italy and Red Underpants
• Nazis and Fanta
• David Bowie and Scouts
• Witches and Graffiti
• American Prisons and Rodeo
• Lego and Tyres
• Walt Disney and Cricket
