    Ketchup and Rings (May 18th)

    Ketchup and Rings (May 18th)

    Do you want to listen to a podcast about rotten Draculas, strange handprints, Pope swapping, TV monkey homing, New Zealand's unusual chart toppers, the art of Star Trek Captain naming and Tom Mix's horse Tony among things? Well, this was indeed the series for you!

    Sadly this is the final regular episode of "Don't Lets Chart". We've really enjoyed our two and a half years of creating silly list trivia but we both feel we've done as much as we can under the current name. We will return with something different soon but for now its goodbye and a huge thank you for listening to our daft series.

    Love and Robots,

    Ben and Phil

    Brasso Police (April 20th)

    Brasso Police (April 20th)

    Welcome to the podcast that tries to charge head first through today via the distraction of yesterday with lists, trivia and thirteen litres of Old Ianson’s Dad Botherer up the park. In today's episode we're taking a look at April 20th throughout the years and learn why Street Fighter The Movie The Game did not need to exist, who has the annually best bottoms, when Macbeth was first misquoted for comedy value, what a pineapple farmer might be, who came afoul of a "swamp rabbit", how you could lick a James Bond, when the Red Baron was a dog, what Phil's closest lookalike is, how to tell the "unpasteurised milk" joke, what George Burns and Captain Tom have in common (other than that) and there's the tragic history of Davey Dirtbox. Plus much more all packed into a very funny half hour in which you might learn something but only if you read an encyclopedia whilst listening.

    Listen, share, hit subscribe, wear a tie that stinks of chicken, all that usual stuff. We're a small scale homemade show with just two people so all the support is gratefully received.

    The Most Beautiful Steve (April 13th)

    The Most Beautiful Steve (April 13th)

    Want to learn some genuinely true facts from this date in time but also like silly people making jokes about Slimer's buttocks, sexy elephants and the Fuse bar throughout? Then "Don't Lets Chart" is your podcast!
    Its quite the trunk laden episode too with the internet's most burning questions about peanut-eating pachyderms alongside a visit to Pope Martin, 1962's biggest novelty hit, the perfection of tap dancing, Bobby Brown's unfortunate stomach troubles, cannibalism in comedy, the most misquoted movie moments, Metallica taking on the internet, a ban from the ping pong council, the possibility of a 'Jeff Erson', needless references to You Bet!, tear-pumping poetry and much more. But no Darren Day.

    This podcast is hosted by Phil Catterall and Ben Baker and was produced by Ben. It is not in any way sponsored by the Fuse bar. Because it was discontinued in 2006.
    And if you like this, please please tell your friends. Listen, share, hit subscribe, fight a bear, all that usual stuff. We're a small scale homemade show with just two people and listener numbers are way down during the pandemic so all the support is gratefully received.

    I've Patented A Shoe (April 6th)

    I've Patented A Shoe (April 6th)

    Don't Lets Chart is a podcast that looks at the current day in history, shakes it for interesting trivia and then spray paints "BUMS" over the top of it.

    In this look at the April 6ths of time, Ben Baker and Phil Catterall learn about America's furry millionaire, Tartan Day, Napoleon's more petty acts of sulking, celluloid filth, Olympic pigeon bothering, the true inventor of the Pog, Steve Video Plus, boxing for peace, how Teddy Roosevelt definitely sounded, the early days of animation, ABBA's rise to Eurovision dominance, New Beer's Eve, the sadness of Spare Dad Three, patently untrue patents and lots more on the way. Plus our resident robot is here with his topical take on the news.

Just because it’s sauce don’t mean it’s gravy

Very funny podcast. Good rapport between the two gentlemen.

Dracula Hams?

There's only so many ways people reading lists can be funny. OR SO I THOUGHT. Ben and Phil have such a natural aptitude for good-natured silliness that this podcast has become an absolute essential part of my listening.

reluctant gentleman ,

Achingly funny

One of the best podcasts of 2019. Genuinely laugh out loud funny. The chemistry between Ben and Phil is great.
Just don't mention On The Buses.
