Simon and Dan go on a random wikipedia article and chat about it - it's the Wikicast!

    Mars Pathfinder - Wikicast 090

    Mars Pathfinder - Wikicast 090

    The article Simon didn't want to tear himself away from. The boys talk about flight on other planets, sponsoring a flight on this planet, and Dan discovers his new favourite sport. Oh, and Simon has some announcement or other.
    Fantastic work from you all writing in with your strange sports - please do keep them coming in, and let us know if there's an opportunity to join you (in the post rona times) to film us trying them!

    What weird sports do you play? Has anyone else played Simon's scout version of handball? Can we make this the national sport of the wikicast? Email in and let us know!

    Kisha club - Wikicast 088

    This one is a slow build to a very satisfying finish... Simon calls Dan dad twice, and the Balrog makes an appearance.
    Oh and twenty minutes of fan fiction. Strap in.

    I'll be honest, I edited this episode yesterday and I cannot remember for the life of me what we talk about. Something about Sea Beet I think? You're on your own.

Jaydeecryptoswift ,

Simply great!

A fantastic on-cast chemistry between 2 good friends and used-to-be roommates.

The only issue with this podcast is the lack of uploads! 🙂

If Harry and Hermione had a podcast...

If you answer yes to any of the below this podcast is for you
A. You like smiling and laughing, if you don’t enjoy doing so in public don’t watch this on your commute
B. Think that Wikipedia is to be trusted and is a useful tool for education
C. Don’t mind being called a reader despite this being a PODCAST

I found this podcast last month and have never enjoyed a podcast more. It’s two educated and funny blokes chatting (only occasionally while drunk(can that ‘New Years’ special be an annual thing?)) I can’t recommend it enough and only have one warning: if you didn’t like choral music before this podcast you will do after- you have no choice in this matter. Oh and if you like this Podcast then Simon has a YouTube channel which is just as good- if not better- than this podcast!
