    THIS EPISODE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 14/9/2022

    In this episode, Bruce and @TheRealDrKev catch up with each other from different sides of the globe. With Bruce in San Antonio, Texas, in the middle of Iron Maiden’s world tour, Kev has a unique opportunity to treat him as one of his ‘guinea pigs’ and delve deep into the psychology of one of the rock world’s true global icons.

    Kev identifies Bruce as one of the toughest people he’s ever met (and, given some of the folk he hangs around with, that’s saying something!) But where does that toughness come from? Bruce talks about his childhood in the north of England; about how discipline, resilience and humility are the keys to longevity in the ego-infested waters of the music business; and how a bulb of steamed garlic always helps him ‘come down’ after a show!

    Bruce & Kev rarely talk in a straight line and their fascinating conversation has all the familiar twists and turns that we’ve now come to expect! Bruce reveals how he once fought off two skinheads outside a pub by fencing them with his umbrella; why airline pilots never eat the same dinner; and how our ego is like a balloon…it shouldn’t be pumped up too big, it should be let back down again slowly to prevent it flying all over the place, and if it comes into contact with a prick it has a tendency to explode!

    Episode 26 - Algorhythm and Blues with Dr. Michael Brooks

    Episode 26 - Algorhythm and Blues with Dr. Michael Brooks

    Maths is everywhere. It allows us to fly planes, make music, initiate the perfect lunge in fencing, and add up all the numbers on a roulette wheel (the total comes to 666, by the way.) All the things that Bruce loves…so shame he got a C in it for his GCSE! In this, the final episode of the series then, Bruce and @TheRealDrKev attend to some unfinished business as they are joined by the writer and quantum physicist, Dr Michael Brooks, bearing weapons of math instruction. What exactly is maths, they ask? Did we discover it or invent it? Is it out there in the ‘real world’ or just ‘in our heads’? As they start to put two and two together, they pick up some ingenious life hacks…how choosing numbers over 31 can maximise your chances of winning a jackpot on the lottery; how the ‘37% Rule’ can help you find your ideal home, car, or partner; and, in the Philosophy World Cup, why Heisenberg should never take a penalty and Schrödinger managed to score 2 goals simultaneously.

    Dr Michael Brooks is the bestselling author of The Maths That Made Us: How Numbers Created Civilisation (published as "The Art of More" in the US). He is co-host (with Radio 5 Live breakfast show host Rick Edwards) of the Eureka! podcast.

    Episode 25 - Psycho Killer…Qu’est-ce que c’est? With Dr. Scott Bonn

    Episode 25 - Psycho Killer…Qu’est-ce que c’est? With Dr. Scott Bonn

    The Night Stalker. Son of Sam. The Zodiac Killer. For centuries, serial killers have terrified and fascinated us in equal measure. But why? What is it about the Hannibal Lecters and Ted Bundys of this world that so captures our imagination? In this episode of Psycho Schizo Espresso, Bruce and @TheRealDrKev are joined by the criminologist and serial killer expert, Dr. Scott Bonn – a man who has actually sat down and eaten cheeseburgers with the Son of Sam, .44 Caliber Killer, David Berkowitz, and entered into extensive correspondence with the pure sadistic psychopath, Dennis ‘Bind Torture Kill (BTK)’ Rader, who, for the past 17 years, has been under 23-hrs a day Supermax lockdown in Kansas - to talk about all things serial-killer related. Be warned. If you thought the last episode with one of the world’s top forensic pathologists was chilling, this one kicks it up a notch and then some. Among other questions, Kev & Bruce ask: Does ‘evil’ really exist or does everything just boil down to neurochemistry? In recent years, have terrorists and spree-killers taken over from “A-List” serial killers as our bogeymen of choice? What’s with “Murderabilia”: Jeffrey Dahmer’s glasses recently came up for auction for $150, 000? And, last but not least: Is it true that serial killers fart more than the rest of us? Well, you’ve heard of Jack the Ripper…

    Episode 24 - Lifting the Lid on Death with Roger Byard

    Episode 24 - Lifting the Lid on Death with Roger Byard

    As one of the world’s foremost forensic pathologists, Professor Roger Byard is a man who has given his life to death. In his 40 years at the coalface of mortality, there’s not much he hasn’t seen…serial killers, cot deaths, the 2002 Bali bombings, the 2004 southeast Asian tsunami. In this episode of Psycho Schizo Espresso, he joins Bruce and @TheRealDrKev to reflect on his journey through death that began over 4000 autopsies ago! As you can imagine, the conversation is wide-ranging and takes in the tragic, the creepy, the ridiculous, and sometimes, the mysterious and (as yet) still unexplained, as Roger gives us a guided tour around death stopping off at sexual asphyxiation, death by animal, death by selfie, and death through sorcery and ritual magic. Among other questions, Kev & Bruce ask: How lifelike are those shows about forensic pathologists that we see on TV? And, er, rather worryingly: “Is there really such a thing as the ‘perfect murder’?” But they start, quite literally, with a ‘bang’ and something that has fascinated them both for years…the rather hot topic of spontaneous human combustion!

    Episode 23 - From The Moshpit To The Cockpit… & Everywhere in Between: Aces High with RAF Top Gun Fin Monahan

    Bruce and @TheRealDrKev are joined by the legendary RAF fighter pilot, chief instructor, and Red Arrows Commanding Officer, Fin Monahan DFC, who talks them through precisely what it takes - both physically and psychologically - to be a real life Top Gun, and what a bad day at the office looks like at Mach 1 over the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan. As you can imagine, Bruce & Kev are really, ahem, flying in this episode! What’s the difference between the mindset of a commercial airlines pilot and that of an elite military flying ace, they ask? What elevates your regular, everyday swashbuckling aviator to one with a DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross) to their name? Most importantly if all…how the hell do you have a pee in a Harrier jump jet?

    Episode 22 - First Impressions with Rory Bremner

    Episode 22 - First Impressions with Rory Bremner

    In this episode of Psycho Schizo Espresso, Bruce and @TheRealDrKev are joined by one of the UK’s greatest and best-known impressionists and comedians, Rory Bremner, as they explore the psychology of imitation and examine precisely what it takes to be a good mimic. Are some of us just ‘born’ impressionists? As they delve ever deeper into the mysteries of the voice, Bruce & Kev break genuinely new ground in this largely uncharted area of human psychology. Do you, they ask Rory, need to put yourself in the ‘mind’ of your subject by actually watching them speak…or can you just ‘do their voice’ blind? Does Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) aid comic creativity? And has he ever been tempted to alter the course of history by putting in a hoax call to a world leader…?

Entertaining and informative

I could seriously listen to Bruce, and Dr. Kev talk about paint drying. They always have good topics, and good guests. The new episode are getting better, and seem to explore more on the topic of each episode.

AJ Nic ,

Excellent: entertaining & informative

Great podcast, easy to listen to and the guests are great.

Madison Sq. Pk. ,

Loved the Wilko Johnson episode

Great interview with the legend that is Wilko Johnson. Stories you’ll hear nowhere else and even a Handley Page Heron which impressed Bruce no doubt.
Yes to renaming Southend Airport.
