    Some Sort Of Promotional Endeavour

    Hello friends! Did you know that for less than £3 a month you can get two extra podcasts with Ben and Phil? In fact, if you had one of our snazzy personal RSS feeds that each patron gets, you'd just be receiving the new episode of our sister show "Don't Lets Chart...Nights" right now in which we talk at greater length on just one pop culture topic, sometimes more personal but usually just as stupid. Previous shows have seen us fix the Christmas charts, look at Radio 1's least likely DJs, find the less popular celebrity siblings, take an online best friends test, investigate forgotten TV and film releases , drink twelve lovely pints along with the madder Irish pop things and more.

    We'll still continue to make the regular episodes and we appreciate anyone who listens no matter if they support us or not but this is pretty much Ben's job currently so if you like what you've heard please do consider supporting something small, home-made and and uniquely daft. 

    Thank you.

    Don't Lets Chart 211 - Bubblegum Tongue (Direct To Video)

    Don't Lets Chart 211 - Bubblegum Tongue (Direct To Video)

    Its Valentine's week and as per usual Ben and Phil are here to put this d on you. Or is that old Ian Snoop Dogg? Either way, its not a very welcoming start to a show dedicated to all the best romantic things - i.e. murderous computers, Ernest Goes To Camp and the music of Mr Mister...which probably explains why your hosts are both single. That and their faces, personalities and clothing coverage in biscuits obviously. And thats before they've heard this new episode which is really very silly indeed. 

    So...um, you seeing anyone then?

    Don't Lets Chart 210 - A Song With The Word Smurf In It

    Don't Lets Chart 210 - A Song With The Word Smurf In It

    2020 already doing your head in? Time for an arbitrary time warp back to 1996 for a listener voted top 20 of things including Kenickie, Mark and Lard on the Graveyard Shift, the mysterious mayfly career of Bear Van Beers, the Spice Girls tell us what they want, a brief trip to the Eighth Doctor, Take That splitting up, Quake and Resident Evil change up the videogames, all the heroin films, the mediocre return of Fist of Fun, football came home...for a bit, Jarvis vs Jacko and much more.

    Ben and Phil were teenagers in 1996 so expect talk about wanking. Sorry about that.

    Don't Lets Chart 209 - Two Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

    Don't Lets Chart 209 - Two Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

    Its an old school sort of Chart this week as Ben and Phil look at the week in years gone by and find some totally unconnected but suitably ridiculous facts about Bad Boys 3 and the longest gap between movie sequels of all time, wonder why most 1950s sitcom titles sound like filth and run through the best (read: most childish) Royal nicknames of history. Its a very funny episode but if you dont enjoy it, give us a shout and we'll tape a Baby Yoda to the front improving the content by 200%. You can be sure of it!

Wince at the "Pudsley" eye socket gag! Inhale some Chuckle musk! Wonder where dogs keep getting all those Quavers! Tape over the Dogme 95 version of Lady and The Tramp! Plus: Some farts! Dadbaths! Shouting men! And going to Thames at the end! 

    With thank you to our friends at Round The Archives (@Roundthearchiv1), Retrospecticus (@_Retrospecticus), Hark! The 87th Precinct Podcast (@Hark87Podcast) and Justin from When Was Things (@WhenIsBirths) for taking the time to set us a quiz question. Go adore all their things immediately!

Customer Reviews

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.

ColJefferson ,

The natural successors to Reeves & Mortimer?

My new favourite podcast which regularly has me crying with laughter. Ben is the performer and Phil is his perfect foil. Moments of comedy genius.

QueenVikG ,

Jeez this is funny

I thought this was funny because I was on a plane and all podcasts on planes are either sad or funny, but no! This podcast holds up on trains and buses also.
