    Episode 50: Aiming at the Shrew

    Episode 50: Aiming at the Shrew

    The Natural History Museum – a fine institution full of dusty, dead things. A bit like the House of Lords. Satire. But how do you get into the Museum’s collections? Win a raffle? The X Factor? Who knows? One man who hopes he does is Douglas Smith. Will he get his shrew past the tough […]

    Episode 49: Rights and Wrongs

    Things haven’t always been fair at Christmas. In the old days, before the Snapchat, some people didn’t get everything they wanted. Women. They haven’t always had it easy. But there are some who fight for their rights! And there’s no better time to do it than when the nights draw in and those shops open […]

    Episode 48: Gibbon Half a Chance

    Ooh be do. I want to be like you. I want to walk like you, talk like you. Ooooh. Modelling yourself after successful people can have ups and downs. For every “being open to new ideas” there’s a “wake every morning at 4am”. If only King Louie understood that. Of course this is unrelated to […]

    Episode 47: Breaking the Mould

    Aaaaaaaachoo! Oof. Sorry about that. I really must stop rubbing my face with things I’m allergic to. Like cats. Of course scientists are doing their best to cure us of diseases – and to do this they like to stick things in our crevices. Get ready for international travel! Animals! And lots of hot nose […]

And not only the successful ones. Join us to for a story of the also-rans. The followers. The failures. The Great British computer companies. Chris Sessions – Brian Mackenwells […]

    Episode 45: Bullet Time

    Guns. Dangerous things. Well, one end is. Really as long as you’re not standing in front of the little bit on the front you’ll be okay. They never point that out in gun statistics do they? What about all the people who were BEHIND the gun? Having established that guns are safe, let’s use one […]

Brilliant

I love “British humor” of this vein! Wonderfully geeky, shamelessly nerdy, unapologetically smart, and really funny. I hope this podcast has a very long and distinguished stay on Het Internet. (I’d also love to see these folks work with Frank Key on…something...

Zippy and fun

I really enjoy this podcast. The episodes clip along at a good pace and the writing is witty and filled with zingers. I occasionally find myself laughing out loud at a double entendre here or there. Keep up the good work.
