    Beer made from a Whale's testicle!? We expose Nottingham's Robin Hood Energy and Mark Dolan is a moron

    On this week's episode, we're not falling for the Chinese Ambassador's obvious cover-up for looking at porn when he blames twitter and asks for an urgent investigation after liking a sexually graphic tweet, we catch up with Dan after his long break from the show, where he gives us an exclusive inside scoop on the whole Robin Hood Energy fiasco, we explain why Mark Dolan is an anti-mask prick, Moody pulls out a triple of good news and we round things off with a movie quote pub quiz.

    Three filthy socialists take over the show...

    Three filthy socialists take over the show...

    Time for something different. Welcome to a more chilled out episode of The Virtual Pub - recreating the pub as you remember it before this pandemic in podcast form. 

    With three of us on this show, the episode is a little quicker and more socialist than our usual programming, so let us know what you think! 

    On today's episode:


    We pick some pricks: including the Portland police department, Boris Johnson and Craig Whittaker
    Some good news for the environment and someone's adorable cuddly toy
    And we wrap things up with a pub quiz

    On this week's episode...


    (0:00) We welcome you all back to The Virtual Pub, and re-introduce you all to returning guest, Leo! Also, we ask Moody about how he's feeling at the moment in North Leicester, and find out what you guys think of the show...
    (23:30) It's time to pick some pricks - this week, Leo talks through how he got scammed, Moody shares a story with us about a family of Brexit voters who didn't realise what they voted for (and tried to fix it by talking to the mayor of a small French town), Jason goes fishing for one of the biggest pricks in Britain, and Ben talks about America selfishly buying up all the supply of a drug that helps with COVID-19.
    (72:56) Now for some good news - we transition smoothly from picking pricks with some new Nay Yays (good news involving pricks, or pricks that turn into good news, the middle ground). Then we share some amazing news including the positive development of a vaccine and a Morrisons security guard holding an umbrella up, so a golden retriever stays dry.
    (93:26) BONUS - while recording, we stumbled upon some hilarious Daily Mash articles, relevant to what we've been talking about.
    (97:20) And finally, an extra jiggy pub quiz and our final goodbyes.

    On this week's episode...


    (0:00) We welcome you all back to The Virtual Pub 
    (8:00) The pubs are re-opening! The Virtual Pub is not so "virtual" anymore, as the Government announces pubs can re-open on Saturday 4th July. With two of us who love the pub and two who work at bars, we're in a unique position to answer one simple question - is it too soon?
    (39:00) It's time to pick a prick - this week, we talk about the prick who flew the "white lives matter, burnley" flag from the plane (he got sacked - good riddance), and Norman Tebbitt (who CORRECTION: wrote for The Telegraph) saying that Nazis were left wing?
    (52:13) Now for some good news - Chicken Run is getting a sequel and two amazingly wholesome stories that I won't ruin for you here...
    (58:23) And finally, the pub quiz and housekeeping.

    PODCAST NEWS: Next week's episode will be the last of series 1. With a couple of us returning to work at pubs, we've got to rethink how we record the show and want to take a couple weeks reviewing & improving what we do on the show. Look forward to us returning later in July. We will announce a specific date soon.

Such a great idea

In this current pandemic, people al around the world are missing nights spent at the local tavern (I certainly am). These guys have found a clever way to experience the same vibe but at home. Suggest listening with a cold beer in hand.
