Episode 103: 56 minutes running time
Hello! This week we come to you from the World Famous recording facilities at Studio B, near Witney in rural Oxfordshire, England, UK.
* The really big news is that we’ve forsaken the cavernous Studio L and have migrated to the cupboard-like Studio B. The show is a little shaky because of the new layout, but boy was it easier for us to produce!
* Competition The First! Send us an email stating the capital of the US State of Texas and we’ll send you a free CD!
* Competition The Second! Send us an email and we’ll send you a free podcast T-shirt! Or maybe two!
* Bren has a massive rant about The Brits.
* Bren has a massive rant about the Pilton Music Festival (otherwise known incorrectly as Glastonbury Music Festival)!
* Bren only killed 14 people this week, including 7 unlucky lorry drivers on the M40 who he killed with his magic ray-gun.
* Soph thinks school half-term holidays should be banned or perhaps schoolchildren should be killed. And so should ineffective parents.
* Soph’s found a new band who we’ll be playing next week: The Hype Theory. So that’s forthcoming musical excellence as well as the musical excellence we bring you this week!
