    Rum Doings Episode 272

    Rum Doings Episode 272

    Welcome back. It's a bumper-length episode this week, with all manner of discussion, from the jokes of Peppa Pig to the state of the American Constitution. Also we talk Pokemon Go, Nick joins QAnon, and John tries to convince himself to go running again.

    Rum Doings Episode 271

    Obviously we talk about the current happenings, from the perspective of John’s all-consuming anxiety misery, and Nick’s similarly pathological upbeat view. But there are other subjects too, such as John’s new attempt to start running, and the inevitable demise of Facebook.

    Rum Doings Episode 270

    Ho ho ho dear. It's our CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! Is it our Hanukkah special? Is Hanukkah special?

    It does sound like we're about to talk about politics again, but don't worry, we divert. Instead we ponder why no one visits Prince Philly in hospital, the worstest of all Christmas songs, and complain about Poundland's tills.

    We then talk about forgiveness, which is uncharacteristically apposite for the season, then try to come up with some new Christmas traditions.

    Rum Doings Episode 269

    John has a CHRONIC SINUS CONDITION, and that's obviously the big news of the week. So we talk nasal DOUCHING. He's also just launched a new website about undiscovered indie games, but pah.

    We also talk the awfulness of the election choices, as evidenced by the inevitable success of Mogg, about Judith's appendectomy, steamed breakfasts, and the disastrous US healthcare system.

    Rum Doings Episode 268

    In our 268rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: should we be worried about TikTok?

    Nick has a new kitten! It's correct name is Maisy. This sadly doesn't distract us from talking about the hopeless pit that is the UK general election. And then, with a great deal of sense and decorum, we discuss the ethnic demographics of the UK for the longest time.

    Then, stepping into a subject about we're even less expert, we talk evolution.

    Rum Doings Episode 267

    There's a little bit of politics. We begin with all the latest HILARIOUS ANTICS of Brexit, and then quite figuratively leap across the Atlantic at the depressing farce of the Democratic race. With special focus on the brain collapse of Joe Biden.

    We learn the advice of children, and then get to the real issue of the day: Nick's fancy new toilet.

Very Awesome

I've only listened to the last 15 or so, but so far it's very good.

Random and funny

This is a very off topic type of podcast, but it does make me laugh quite frequently.
