I co-host and produce the number 1 (and only) Hugh Grant podcast on the internet!

The show has an audience in more than 65 countries and has charted in the top-10 of TV & Film podcast charts in multiple countries including the UK, Australia, Russia, Hong Kong, The Philippines and Cambodia. Check us out and follow us on Twitter @TakingHugh or on Instagram @takinghughforgranted.

This new fortnightly podcast asks the question: “Are we taking Hugh for granted?” Hosts Diggory Waite and Oscar Beardmore-Gray met while studying at the University of Bristol and soon realized they had a mutual appreciation for Grant’s rather underrated acting.

My wife is sleeping with your son! By which I mean she’s discovered Taking Hugh for Granted and listens to it in bed…she loves it! As a result, we’re now binging on Hugh!

The podcast nearly caused a nasty accident.  We entered the Dartford Tunnel at the point at which Oscar claimed the film was rubbish, I nearly crashed the car! And his hatred of all period drama. The horror caused by lumping Jane Austen in same bracket as Downton Abbey almost caused a violent swerve! I am with Diggory all the way on this one….that Sense and Sensibility is one of my top 5 all time films.

The only podcast available giving Hugh Grant the recognition he deserves, an essential for the people. Delves into Grant’s filmography deeper than the surface level in a light-hearted and investigative way. The balance is hard to strike. Genuinely one of the most enjoyable podcasts going.

What a find! A hammock for the ears! As a former Hugh-sceptic, I have been bowled over. You will find yourself not only falling in love with the man Himself, but also the two gentlemanly shamans taking you on the ride.


A unique, hilarious and incredibly insightful podcast into one of my most beloved film-stars and quite possibly Britain’s most prized possession. Keep up the great work! This podcast certainly GRANTed me all my wishes…


A fantastically put together pod packed – heck, dare I say overflowing – with insight and thought provocation. Am working through the trauma I suffered upon hearing some challenging Notting Hill related opinions, but I guess that’s the thing about Taking Hugh for Granted: it might not tell you what you want to hear, but it will always tell you what you need to hear!
