Have you ever wondered what Jarvis Cocker has on his tour rider? Or what aftershave Liam Gallagher wears? Or how the boys from Supergrass grew such impressive sideburns at such a young age?

Stuff like this is all that comedians George Lewis and Paul McCaffrey ever think about.

And this podcast will let them find out the answers to these and hundreds more of their dumb questions about the greatest time in music history.

In each episode, George (winner of Celebrity Mastermind, answering questions on Oasis) and Paul (knows twice as much about Britpop as George) will be joined by a guest who will chat about their experience of the Britpop movement.

They will uncover stories you’ve never heard before, discuss niche trivia and revel in the nostalgia of a time when we all thought Tony Blair, the England football team and minidiscs all had great futures ahead of them.

    EP16 - Nigel Clark of Dodgy

    Dodgy captured the complete feel good nature of Britpop with songs and a presence that couldn’t help but make you smile. It wasn’t all plain sailing for the band though. Frontman and songwriter Nigel Clark takes Paul and George through how they came up with their name, how they signed their label and why he stopped performing for 5 years.

Criminally underrated podcast

Honestly I could just listen to George and Paul have witty back and forth banter for an hour and be entertained, because they are a couple of hilarious people, but they also have some really good guests and quite in depth and candid interviews of people involved in the (mostly) 90s britpop scene. And the added bonus of Spotted at the beginning and Don’t Believe the (I forget which, Truth?) Middle segments are *chefs kiss*. Hope to hear them again in Season 2, cheers!
