What happened to Elgar?

Wonderful, dry, laconic look at life of a Brit expat in Greece.......Its the missing Ed Reardon tapes...... Rob Johnson is hidding a love for Greece and the Greek way of life under a thick scowl.

Really worth a listen.

Elements of good old Python silliness combined with intellectual political debate. Ten minutes if really good light hearted distraction. The author has a good name too :)

These just keep getting more and more brilliant

These podcasts are just so funny. The last one I had to stop the player as I was laughing so much. Wonderful characters and humour that just keeps taking me by surprise.
