    S8E4. The Sauce of Sadness

    S8E4. The Sauce of Sadness

    If we want to understand why pure, inescapable sadness has descended on what was once a happy, albeit somewhat violent and troubling book, we must go back in time.

    Way, way, way back, all the way to Book 7 and ask ourselves some hard questions - what went wrong? Is anyone to blame? Could over indulgence of sauce or other condiments possibly be the culprit?

    Everything on the table this week, even the sauces, as we go deep into the bottle of sadness to find out just how we got here and how the heck we might get out.

    S8E3. Sad, Marry, Avoid?

    S8E3. Sad, Marry, Avoid?

    Sure, being sad is sad. We can't deny it. It feels bad, it feels really quite sad in fact.

    But what if the only way to conquer sadness is to be even more sad? What if you could have so much sadness that sadness itself would become sad and spit you out?

    It's a bold idea, sadness would never expect that.

    Join us this week as we try once again to vanquish sadness in the only way left, by flipping the whole damn sad town on its head and sadding things up until the sadness falls right out. It's big, it's bold, it's sad, it's WAPIN7 Book 8.

    S8E2. The Mary Bumper Sadness Special

    S8E2. The Mary Bumper Sadness Special

    You thought you knew sad? You know, sad... that feeling you get when you realise you've eaten the last crisp and there won't be any more crisps tonight, or when you have a shower and the hot water runs out, or even when you're on a call and the WiFi drops off and you don't know why. Sad, very sad indeed.

    But it turns out things can be even sadder than that, things can get really, really sad actually in quite a sad way.

    So buckle up your sad belt, pack a happy snack in your pocket and join us on the sad bus. If we're going to sad town, at least we're going together.

    S8E1. Welcome To Club Sadness - Book 8 Begins!

    S8E1. Welcome To Club Sadness - Book 8 Begins!

    We're back with a sadness bomb and some problems as old as time...

    Can frivolous spending,  clubbing and drinking to excess  improve your health, mental wellbeing and outlook on life?

    What would you do if you had loads of money and lost your joie de vivre? Would you ride an elephant around your town to make your neighbours jealous? Would you cover yourself in dayglo paint, hit the club and read the phonebook on the elephant home?

    Important questions indeed. There's only one way to find the answer...

    Onwards! To SEASON 8

    S7E8. Special: Casino Royale

    S7E8. Special: Casino Royale

    The name's Jimbo, Jimbo Secretan, Her Magesty's Ornothologist and best gambler in Britain. 

    Yes that's right it's time for the final special episode of Season 7 - this time it's a matter of national importance and there's only one man fit for the job.

    He likes to drink heavily, smoke like a trumpet, and by gosh can he gamble his way out of a corner. The stakes have never been higher, the ties have never been blacker, and the plans have never been smarter than with James 'Jimbo' Bond in Ian Flemming's first Bond book 'Casino Royale'.

    Grab a glass of pure vodka containing a small olive or other vegetable of your choosing, and join us for an adventure that simply must be destroyed after listening.

    S7E7. The Book 7 Catch Up Zoo Quiz Special (Ep. 100!)

    S7E7. The Book 7 Catch Up Zoo Quiz Special (Ep. 100!)

     Join us for this incredibly special centenary episode of WAPIN7 - an unbelivable milestone for us, you, Tolstoy and surprisingly the animals of London Zoo.

    Chosen by our Patrons, the Zoo is of course the obvious place to go for this commemorative - likely collectable - episode and it's the natural venue to host a quiz about War and Peace.  We've got all the animals you might expect in a good quiz plus a few more: lions, gorillas, pigs, smurfs, snails, turtles, ants and even cows.

    Good luck in the quiz and thank you for listening and supporting the show, we love it, we love you - here's to the next 100 episodes!

Wouldn’t think a pod about War

“There was nothing wrong or unseemly in what they said, it was witty and might’ve been funny, but it lacked just that something which is the salt of mirth, and they were not even aware that such a thing existed.” - Tolstoy

Listening may even incite some artistry and creativity, which the playful, slightly-frustrated banter bouy *chef’s kiss*.

Oh, Now I Get It!

Embarrassed to admit (but I will) that I have a genuinely greater appreciation for my favorite book after this podcast. So many benefits of revisiting WAP through the lens of these irreverent and hilariously funny guys.

Much needed levity

I love listening to audiobooks and decided to tackle War & Peace with the hopes that it could offer perspective on these challenging times. However, though I’ve read Les Miserables and others involving Napoleon, the historical references were escaping me. I decided to search for any sort of help, and serendipitously discovered this HiLaRiOuS podcast. Imagine my surprise that what I actually needed to read W&P was levity. I cannot recommend this podcast enough…I’ve belly-laughed during each episode, and, even though I’ve now finished W&P, I can’t wait for new ones each week. Thank you, Will & Steve, for bringing so much joy to my reading!! You are so diplomat❣️🍍🕷🕷🕷🍍❣️
