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

    Transylvania, Louisiana - Wikicast 067

    Transylvania, Louisiana - Wikicast 067

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the airwaves, Simon and Dan come crashing back with a whole new hour of pseudo-content. How many Gs do you pull on a Milton Keynes roundabout? How hammered should you be to watch Cats (2019)? Was there a college of vampires in Kentucky? We ask all these questions and more in the brand new run of the Wikicast!
    Please do let us know your thoughts on the show and about anything in particular really at spongyelectric@gmail.com!

    Whitespotted toadfish - Wikicast 066

    Whitespotted toadfish - Wikicast 066

    Episode 66.2 really, after Simon accidentally deleted his recording of 66.1...
    After an (explained) absence, the boys get possibly their shortest article yet and so fill you in on what's been going on in their lives: working with 900K+ YouTubers, Katy Perry orgasming, and learning about the benthiccc zone!
    Leave us a review on iTunes if you have a moment: we'll read the best ones out next episode! https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-wikicast/id1256465047

    Balanchine (horse race) - Wikicast 065

     
    The boys are back after their summer break, and they are BURSTING with things to talk about. Horse racing! Singing! World of Warcraft! The Wurzels!
    Strap yourself in for an hour of tangents, diversions, and occasionally a bit of learning. It's good to be back :) Let us know if you'd like to see us play some World of Warcraft!

    St Patrick's Purgatory - Wikicast 064

    Dan and Simon gaze deeply into St Patrick's hole. If you have a site of historical importance near you, please do email in! We want to hear all about your local history, and bonus points if you send us a photo of you listening to the podcast (or in Wikicast gear) at said site! Also please do guess what Dan's riddle is all about. Because Simon is a bit confuzzled.
    Also it's our two year anniversary!! Thank you for putting up with us for so long, you guys rule. We totally remembered that it was our anniversary from the very start of the episode, as per...

    The Whole Town's Talking - Wikicast 063

    The Whole Town's Talking - Wikicast 063

     
    Blowie. Exeter. Confession. Hoooo boy.
    Dan and Simon chat about old films and get caught in a wiki closed loop, the podcast loses some weight, we have yet more talents showcased from the readership, including some fantastic fan fiction! Also, we close out with some beautiful music from the University of Exeter Chapel Choir. Let us know what you think about the new structure!
    Also please do send us your confessions for confession corner, poster photoshops (it doesn't have to be The Goonies!), and any and all hidden talents you may have!
