    PSTB #28: Bass fire-hose, 1.237 microBiebers, and the ideal platonic sausage

    PSTB #28: Bass fire-hose, 1.237 microBiebers, and the ideal platonic sausage

    It's a flora and fauna special this month, so boil your mix-referencing kettle as PSTB's octogenarian park rangers play guitar to budgies at elevated sample rates, expose non-flamingos to Caravaggio, and politely ask small shrubs to switch off their blackberries. Mike, freshly unmasked as Martin Green of Venezuela, has been pwning Tiktok's algorithms in four-part harmony using the immense untapped potential of floppy-haired teenage angst. Jon, on the other hand, has registered a likeability rating of 1.237 microBiebers by beatboxing execrable brown noise like a ninja virtuoso from the passive-aggressive abyss. Yet they've still found time to answer some more of those deep philosophical questions. Can spot mics get spottier? Is Alex Bainter a shadow of the ideal platonic sausage? And might bass fire-hose be the ideal aesthetic palate-cleanser for a djembe that's eaten everything?

    PSTB #27: Bridgeolian harpjo, carpet-underlay music, and the nuclear kerchief

    PSTB #27: Bridgeolian harpjo, carpet-underlay music, and the nuclear kerchief

    Despite the cosy domestic scene here at PSTB headquarters, baking scones and sharing long involved stories about the British monarchy, there have been rumours of sedition in the ranks of #TeamNik on account of the artist formerly known as Einaudi. Nothing can keep Jon from the ongoing influencer battle, however, putting up his own musical carpet underlay against Mike's 30-year-old VHS instructional-video underscore. Plenty of other musical curios abound too: San Francisco's bridgeolian harpjo, some plausibly deniable Stravinsky and Bernstein quotations, and the joy of shouting "Encore!" when 840 repetitions just aren't quite enough. Even lower lowlights include a scroll full of joyful starfish, a nuclear kerchief, Joe DeGeorge's ruined MIDI keyboard, and the unmistakeable sound of falling Durex. Et tu, Nik?

    PSTB #26: Simon Cowell's shock collar, passive-aggressive guitars, and the Sarlaac drum machine

    PSTB #26: Simon Cowell's shock collar, passive-aggressive guitars, and the Sarlaac drum machine

    It's a worrying time for your two intrepid tea-breakers. Mike's battling his Eurovision withdrawal symptoms by composing aleatorically with a dandelion, while precariously balancing a small bowl of kibbles. John's doing battle with a Sarlaac drum machine, underscoring the Queen's life with Korn, and whacking the 'make it bigger' button. Still, they're both knuckling down once more to investigate all the month's most pressing project-studio matters. For instance, it appears Ed Milliband may have been computer generated by training neural networks with Dutch folk music, Reddit threads, and Tasmanian Devil sounds. There's news too of Simon Cowell's shock-collar, manufactured by Jacob Marley Music Services to inspire late-flowering artistic integrity. Plus we extol the dramatic tension, cognitive dissonance, and passive-aggressive guitar solos of Andy Shauf, as well as unearthing the deep connections between podcasting split-personality disorder and the SOS hand-shot face. Yeah, verily, the Internet giveth, and the Internet taketh away...

    PSTB #25: Hamstering, airborne jacuzzis, and fixing Gal Gadot

    PSTB #25: Hamstering, airborne jacuzzis, and fixing Gal Gadot

    It's mayhem in this month's crisis edition! Mike's singing at gerbil-threatening volumes while pioneering rehooker Maxo's 8-bit funk is exploding his brain. Jon's hamstering drum-sticks, training a rock-and-roll chicken, and spreading jam on ducks. Laura Marling's refusing to wash her baritone ukelele ever again. Neil Young's in a photo booth with a sleeping dog. Meduza and Einaudi are both suing themselves. King Louis XIV's inciting theatrical arson and (even worse!) mime. The Wolf of the tenor section is investigating the acoustic properties of airborne jacuzzis and the pentatonic drivel of icebergs. Is it too late to fix Gal Gadot's 'Imagine'? Will our PSTB TikTok challenge end in tears? And, most crucially, is there anything gaffer tape can't do?

    PSTB #24: Thumpsy-thumpsy, manual Iron Man, and the end-of-X-Files face

    PSTB #24: Thumpsy-thumpsy, manual Iron Man, and the end-of-X-Files face

    This month we challenge all you podfasters to brave our break-neck pace, as a puddlish Jon (or is it Geraldine eating crackers?) and the hollow shell of Mike reveal good news for the serious, intellectual thumpsy-thumpsy listener -- or anyone else directing their Marmite sneer at the weaponisation of Classic FM. Jon is dedicating his restocked facepalm bouquet to new best friend Rob, and doing a manual Iron Man at the intersection between acrobatics and too many percussion sticks. Mike's been treated like conservatively dressed cattle at auction, but consoles himself with the joyful noise of Adam Neely, Katy Perry, and their copyright ouroboros. Past, present, and future Jon explains his bullet-proof backup system, as well as the beauty of fastidious randomisation, all the while wearing an end-of-X-Files face. Plus there's a Madonna mic, an unwrenchlike daughter, and some extremely inconvenient pop-up ads.

    PSTB #23: Thunderfinger Royale, sneezing gnomes, and Friday-sus-Wednesday

    PSTB #23: Thunderfinger Royale, sneezing gnomes, and Friday-sus-Wednesday

    It's awards season this month at the NAMM show, where we're doling out those coveted PSTB gongs for Silly Name, 3D Poster, Dusty Controls, and (of course) Straight To Landfill! Veteran spam-wrangler Jon has been navigating impending Abmeldung from his throne of radical leftist literature, as well as waxing lyrical about nasty nonsense and twiddling his hand-forged toasting fork. Self-styled ball of smug Mike has been watching Thunderfinger Royale and Groundhog's Eve while suffering a Friday-sus-Wednesday and channelling the spirit of Tom Waits (as best a viola-playing tenor can). Hot topics this month include how to become a non-teen teen-pop sensation, what's so tragic about the trailer for Trolls World Tour, why it takes an idiot to know one, and where to bury the banjiola abomination. All accompanied by the dulcet tones of sneezing gnomes and flatulent drainpipes.
