If you fell for Midroll's newest premium podcast subscription service Howl, touted as the "Netflix for podcasts," then you'd be one of several people disappointed not only with the launch but the following months of execution. It's been what seems like a year since Howl started and, yet, there aren't many of the promised exclusives or ad-free shows. One of the most anticipated series comes from Flight of the Concords star/bandmate Jemaine Clement and it's called The Mysterious Secrets of Uncle Bertie’s Botanarium. The pre-written series follows Clements' Lord Joseph Banks, a botanist who travels on the seas towards New Zealand in the early 1700s. The crew encounters plant-worshipers, cannibalistic sausages and even treacherous butterflies on their journey. The series is written by Duncan Sarkies, James Milne, and Stephen Templer.
