    In the final episode of series 3 of Fingers On Buzzers, Lucy and Jenny welcome erstwhile 'Eggheads' adversaries, Geoff Lloyd and Annabel Port, to represent podcast 'Adrift' in the finale of the pod mash-ups.
    Why DID Judith Keppel have beef with Geoff as a result of their 'Eggheads' appearance? How many vocalists of the group 'The Drifters' had in their 65 year history? And which A-lister was born with their own golf-ball sized twin on their shoulder? You'll find all of that out and MORE just by putting this episode in your ears!
    The FOB team are taking a short break over the summer, but we will be back in September 2020.
    Take care everyone, thanks for listening and we cannot wait to be back with you all again in the autumn.

    44 Fingers On Pappy's

    Another week another smashing of pods and this week Lucy and Jenny are joined by most of Pappy's Flatshare Slamdown Podcast. Matt & Ben prove they could hold their own in a quiz and provide some fun facts of their own whilst they're at it, whilst Jenny reveals a rather extreme aversion to an animal usually viewed as innocuous at most.
    As always there trivia has tenuous link to the guest podcast, but everyone laughs and learns along the way ... what fun!

    43 Do The Right Buzzer

    It's another cracking pod-mash this week, as Lucy and Jenny welcome Margret Caborn-Smith and Producer Ben Walker of Do The Right Thing to the Fingers On Buzzers collective!
    The gang reminisce about TV quiz gold such as 'Telly Addicts' and about another quiz -developed by Ben - which didn't quite have the same longevity, but nevertheless deserves a place in TV quiz show history.
    As always, hosts and guests are tested on their general knowledge and go head to head in categories picked for their tenuous link to the visiting podcast.

    42 What The Actual Buzzers?

    The podcast mash-up series continues apace and this week Lucy and Jenny are delighted to welcome Pavo and Neil from the wonderful, WTAF is This Country Podcast!
    If you've never seen the multi-BAFTA award winning 'This Country' you're in for a treat, if you have had that joy, then the guys have hundreds of episodes dedicated to that amazing show, featuring fantastic chats with all the main members of the cast. 
    Sometimes however, they just allow super fans on to talk about their love of all things 'This Country', and it's in this capacity that all members of the FOB team have had the pleasure of appearing on their show and so it felt only right to invite the guys to FOB towers for some quizzing fun. 
    Don't worry, you don't need to be a 'This Country' aficionado to join-in with the trivia in today's episode ...believe me, it's an education for everyone!

A little weird, but...

I know this sounds a little weird, but I just love listening to Lucy Porter’s eternally sparkly, cheery voice.

Brilliant podcast! Feel like this has hit a proper gap in the podcast market, never knew I needed to listen to uninterrupted quiz-show chat until now.
