#46: Karate Chopping John Hallow's Ween On The Antique Roadshow
A spooky special as Ed explains the origins of Halloween but not before discussing the merits of The Karate Kid and it's similarities with a certain space saga. Ed keeps the swear jar empty for the duration of the episode but adult themes remain in a PG kind of way. There's also a run down of his top picks for Sunday afternoon television and why Antiques Roadshow is a perfect tonic for these mad times. All this plus an exciting trailer for a movie that doesn't exist and Brendan Blowhard drops his latest tune, a banging cover of a spooky classic. Enjoy!
#45: James Bond's Reboot Singalong Swan Song
This week's episode is a James Bond special as Ed talks about the spy franchise and the ongoing delay of the latest installment "No Time To Die". Ed is not a fan of some of the previous Daniel Craig films in the series and gives his view on where the franchise should go next with the character. There's an exclusive interview with Sir Sean Connery, the original Bond and Brendan Blowhard sings a stunning rendition of the greatest Bond song. Enjoy!
#44: Tom Holland's Four Star Holiday Getaway
Ed talks about the nitpicks himself and his beloved had on a recent holiday getaway weekend that involved dongles and pods and some very confused hotel staff and Ed has a rambling chat with his Godson. Enjoy Sammon Skins!
#43: Lockdown 2: Electric Boogaloo
This week's podcast comes from the beautiful countryside of Galway as Ed records in the office of long time listener of the show and all time brother of Ed, Julian. Ed talks us through his 100 per cent completion of Red Dead Redemption 2 and begins drinking his prep for his annual colonoscopy. There's some clips of his first stand up gig back after six months and a reading of Van Morrison's new protest song against masks and rational empathy. Enjoy!
#42: Blood Cappuccinos With Emotionally Distant Vampires
This week Ed prepares for his first gig in six months and discusses the new lock-down in Dublin and whether or not sports are good for your mental well being, which may be true for some people but Ed has never really enjoyed them compared to pretending to be Conan The Barbarian. There is also a hot new take on the terrible movie Twilight. It may be twelve years old but that won't stop Ed from picking it apart! Enjoy Sammon Skins!
#41: In Space, No One Can Hear You Eat Substantial Meals
Ed gives some of the 'substantial' meals he's had during the recent pandemic a very poor review as this coming September 21st sees the reopening of the 'wet' pubs. Ed talks about why he thinks it's a good thing ultimately but not for the reasons you think, there's a strange re-imaging of Star Wars and the brand new soap opera "Space Notes" makes its stunning debut as 'glut' is the word of the week somehow.
