TRIGGERnometry is a UK-based podcast hosted by Russian comedian Konstantin Kisin and British comedian Francis Foster.
The podcast, which began in February 2018, is centred around open, fact-based discussions of important and controversial issues. It features interviews with a range of guests, from celebrities to lesser-known figures, and combines challenging questions with humour.
Both had navigated careers in the comedy industry where they often felt misrepresented and looked down upon due to their differing viewpoints. This shared sense of frustration led to the creation of TRIGGERnometry, a platform designed to foster free speech and open dialogue.
The journey of TRIGGERnometry has not been without its challenges.
One of the most significant hurdles came when the hosts were asked to leave their original recording space at a comedy club. The reasons were multifaceted, ranging from political differences to jealousy. This unexpected change led to a period of uncertainty and personal upheaval for both hosts.
However, adversity often breeds innovation.
In response to their predicament, they made the decision to rent a flat in London, transforming the living room into a makeshift studio. This solution provided them with the independence they craved and allowed them to continue their work without external interference. Despite the challenges of noise from nearby construction and the rough neighbourhood, they invested heavily in creating a professional and comfortable space for their guests.
Konstantin and Francis are committed to engaging in conversations with a diverse range of interesting individuals.
