Wrong Term Memory is a weekly podcast - with episodes out every Monday.

We can be a true crime podcast (with humour). Not like Serial, not like Sword and Scale, not like Casefile - just us doing us, with lots of murder and a not-too-serious look at some horrific crimes.

We can be a history podcast (for beginners) with episodes covering everything from the history of military deception to a short history of Glasgow.

We can be a music podcast (not a music review podcast). We dive into the more interesting stories from the world of music, like Norwegian black metal's church burning craze and Kanye West's ability to be a complete oddball.

Our early episodes are almost as good as an encyclopedia. One that hadn't been particularly well proofread or spell-checked (kind of like Wikipedia).

    Hell part 02

    Hell part 02

    Episode two of Squid Game is “Hell”. Join Player 456’s hosts Jack and Colin as they deep dive into the second episode of Netflix’s most popular show of all time. They offer their insight, thoughts and appreciation, and also cover your questions, queries and theories.
    All the players have been deposited back to their normal lives, with some dropped off in pairs (coincidence - we think not). Jack and Colin, again, look at some of the clearest foreshadowing so far from Hwang Dong-hyuk and discuss the theme of “Hell” in more detail.
    Compared to English, the Korean language has a different and quite complex system to refer to one another and this is clear with Sang-woo and Ali’s interactions in this episode.
    We are briefly introduced to Hwang Jun-ho, who has his own, personal reasons for wanting to ‘enter’ the Squid Game world while further themes such as desperation and suicide are discussed, and the social commentary about capitalism is again clear to see.

    Hell part 01

    Episode two of Squid Game is “Hell”. Join Player 456’s hosts Jack and Colin as they deep dive into the second episode of Netflix’s most popular show of all time. They offer their insight, thoughts and appreciation, and also cover your questions, queries and theories.
    The episode opens directly after the events of “Red Light, Green Light” with Jack and Colin offering their insight into Korean funeral coffin rights, with a nod to the Korean girl band: BLACKPINK. Clause three of the Squid Game contract is indicted by Sang-Woo and a democratic vote is held - with some surprising outcomes.
    Squid Game lends itself pretty handily as a metaphor for capitalism and the inequalities and dangers of the model, as well as for class struggles.
    We also meet some new characters, including Han Mi-nyeo (212) and the guys discuss further fantastic direction from Hwang Dong-hyuk, the morality of the players and how much their situations impact on their ethical choices when making the decision to play or go home.

    True Crime: A short history of black metal

    True Crime: A short history of black metal

    As part of our true crime series, we add a little bit of music history into the equation - Jack and Colin will take a dive into the crazy world of Black Metal and its origins.
    The second wave of black metal started in the early https://wrongtermmemory.com/1990s/ (1990s), featuring mostly Norwegian bands such as Mayhem, Darkthrone, Burzum, Immortal, Emperor, Satyricon and Gorgoroth. This early Norwegian black metal scene was pretty distinct (rotten) and inspired the black metal scenes in Europe and The USA.
    The scene was exclusive and created boundaries around itself, incorporating only those who were “true” and attempting to expel all “poseurs”. Some members of the scene were responsible for a spate of church burnings and murder, which eventually drew attention to it and led to a number of dafties being stuck in the jail...

    Player 456: last promo

    Episode one of Squid Game is “Red Light, Green Light”. Join Player 456’s hosts Jack and Colin as they deep dive into the first episode of Netflix’s most popular show of all time. They offer their insight, thoughts and appreciation, and also cover your questions, queries and theories.
    The game eventually gets underway under the careful watch of a giant robotic doll. If players are caught moving, they are “eliminated”. Jack and Colin chat about the use of the ticking clock as a character, how Hwang Dong-hyuk manages to use this common TV trope without it being clichéd, and the clever use of numerology as a script writing aid.
    We meet more of Squid Game’s participants: Cho Sang-woo (218), Kang Sae-byeok (067), Jang Deok-su (101) and Abdul Ali (199). The guys offer their favourite character choices, their take on why this is not just another “lethal game show competition” and also discuss the theory that the show may be the best example of Game Theory’s “zero-sum game”.

    There is a massive turning point for Seong Gi-hun and the themes of love and desperation are again hit home in the first 20 minutes of this episode. Jack and Colin discuss the soundtrack, especially the use of classical music, to create and highlight another key concept in the show: duality. They also consider Hwang Dong-hyuk’s use of synchronisation, the issue of non-rational thinking and give the rundown on the squares, triangles and circles.
    We are also introduced to some of the other characters that are going to be key during Squid Game, including The Front Man (Lee Byung-hun) and Player 001 (O Yeong-su). There are also nods to Star Wars, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and M. C. Escher’s Relativity.

    Watchers are introduced to Seong Gi-hun (played by Lee Jung-jae) - a down on his luck, degenerate gambler but all round decent guy. Jack and Colin discuss the brilliant character building techniques used to quickly get the audience on side with the main protagonist. They also speak about the foreshadowing that is so well used, but can go unnoticed, alongside some of the fantastic direction from Hwang Dong-hyuk.
    The themes of love, luck and desperation are key in Red Light, Green Light and the guys try and think about what life might have looked like for Gi-hun prior to entering the Squid Game.
