Genius pairing

Love this pod. Tony’s big prostrate and Ricky’s knowledge about pressure sensing bunions had me laughing out loud in the latest. Utter nonsense, Excellent work. Up there with SMA.

My belly aches 👍👍👍

Intriguing & Witty

This podcast will have you gripped from the beginning to the end. Absolutely fascinating and funny.
Suggestion for another case: Whatever happened to the Reynolds Girls (pop group from the 80’s) as they disappeared without a trace.

Another suggestion: What happened between TLC (girl group) and their manager Pebbles. I seem to recall them paying her off or something

Another suggestion: Why do some bands or artists chose to put a model miming in front of the camera as opposed to the actual singer e.g Black Box ‘Ride on Time’

Carly Simon’s song ‘You’re so vain’ who is it talking about?

Whatever happened to Richey Edwards from the Manic Street Preachers. He disappeared without a trace ?
