    Episode 365 - Rolf's Cartoon Club

    After school clubs were always terrible. This one turned out to be especially bad.

    Episode 364 - Dr Zitbag's Transylvania Pet Shop

    Where does a dracula buy a goldfish, or a frankingstein find a hamster? Would you sell a cat to a werewolf? Dr Zitbag's Transylvania Pet Shop is less interesting that all of these questions.

    Episode 363 - Paddington Bear

    Every now and then, we watch something genuinely good like Paddington Bear, the incredibly labour-intensive stop-motion animation from Ivor Wood. Don't worry though, I'm sure there will be some willy jokes in here somewhere, and Mark definitely says "boobie."

    Episode 362 - The Magic Roundabout

    A bunch of kids live in a wasteland where the only entertainment is the most boring of all fairground rides. I'd probably talk to snails as well.

    "Of course."

Not Lillicrap

A Gareth Hale tribute act and a bald Louis Theroux discuss growing old, local teachers, grout cleaning, You Tube comments, 90s comedy, failing health, gaviscon and things that happen between a very specific time frame. Oh there’s also a You Tube video getting ignored.

My Review

I am writing a review. It didn't specify it had to be about this podcast so... the Remington smooth & silky battery operated ladyshaver.
Apparently produces perfectly smooth skin, not so, liars. Doesn't shave my skin closely and I am a lady and everything. It's pink because I'm a girl, that's how I know it's for me. Waste your money if you want.

Forever a wheeler

This podcast makes Mondays worth getting up for! Mark and Martyn kick Mondays to bits with their comedy take on nostalgic tv shows and cartoons. Laugh out loud funny, I never miss an episode. They are great guys too but be careful they don’t start drinking your nutrients.
