Some of the talkie bits we cover in this week’s show includes:

  • An apology about the quality of the audio at the start of last week’s show
  • I Am Idiot reckoned we’re best summed up as Terry and June. Who?
  • Last week we touched on Robbie The Robot and his appearance Lost In Space (aka Swiss Family Robinson in Space) and I said Robbie’s first appearnce was in a space-based version of The Tempest that I couldn’t remember. Forbidden Planet
  • Something else we discussed last week was the size of Russell Brand’s cock. Well we had an email sent to which is handy because that’s our email address. It said ‘For the attention of Sophie’ in the subject line and it was from someone called Russell. Brand. But Bren lost it
  • Also talked about last week was ‘Da da da da’. Which came from a German band called…. Trio. Da da da da contained the memorable lyric ‘Ich liebe dich, ich liebe dich’. And Trio biscuits
  • A ‘get well soon’ message to James aka syzgy after his hospitalisation and operation
  • Soph talks about her vajazzle, getting her ladybits checked, having a tilted cervix and on being a girl and looking after herself. And Sesame Street
  • Bren’s new (shortlived?) feature – Get Knotted
  • Very sadly, Bren couldn’t get time off school to go to SxSW. And Soph can’t get time off for the alternative dates Bren proposed for our US Road Trip
  • Big congratulations to Mike and Jenny on their engagement
  • Wedding lists
  • Listener Annie has temporarily got a new iPhone – how long before she destroys this one?
  • St Phil and his tech toys
  • Soph and shoes
  • Bren broke his ankle when he was 10 years-old and nobody knew it
  • Morecombe and Wise sharing a double bed was weird
  • Soph compares herself to the star of the Miranda sitcom and has a conversation. With herself. To prove it
  • Rumour has it that we will have our broadband back on Monday
  • Lack of broadband this week means we’ve had to cancel our interview with Charlie Sheen and Ian at
  • Another reference by Soph to St Phil and his technical world of make-believe
  • Soph’s currently reading a book called ‘Matched’
