    Jordan Gray - The Johnny Fly By Nightly (Part 2)

    *This is part 2 of Jordan Gray's episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*
    It's always a special occasion at The Moon Under Water when we're joined by a guest who has knowledge of the inner workings of a pub, and this week is no exception. Our guest has not only been lucky enough to see behind the magicians cloth and witness the pipes and barrels with their own eyes... they've actually LIVED in a pub. Joining us in the Correct Realm this week is comedian Jordan Gray!
    Jordan actually grew up in a pub, so it's safe to say she knows her stuff. It's also safe to say that she is one of the most talented comedians around, and her recent Edinburgh show 'Is It A Bird' was a super smash hit. But will her dream pub be a super smash hit? Only if she's able to win over the Landlord and his regular...

    The Week In Pubs - 'Lingering Pub Shame'

    The Week In Pubs - 'Lingering Pub Shame'

    It’s been quite the week for the only two permanent residents of the Correct Realm. There’s been plenty of pubbing… but also a fair bit of shame! Thank the Lord they have time to share it all with you! Plus, the guys are educated on the rules surrounding BYOS (bring your own sparkler) policies.
    Do YOU have any lingering pub shame you’d like to tell us about? If so, send an email to john@moonunderpod.com.

    Kiri Pritchard-McLean - Y Draenog Poced (Part 2)

    Kiri Pritchard-McLean - Y Draenog Poced (Part 2)

    *This is part 2 of Kiri Pritchard-McLean’s episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*
    Wales is steeped in history; especially when it comes to pubs. For example, did you know that Owain Glyndŵr would require all of his soldiers to drink a pint of Brains in unison before every battle? And that Shirley Bassey once argued that her most famous ballad should have been called “Ales Are Forever”? Yes, Wales and pubs go hand in hand… and this week’s guest knows all about that. It’s comedian, writer and one of the ultimate pubbers Cymru has ever produced: Kiri Pritchard-McLean!
    Kiri resides on the island of Anglesey, where (because of its road network) journeys to the pub are more of a day out than a quick jaunt. But that hasn’t stopped her from sampling publy delights up and down the country. She’s also spent plenty of time working behind bars over the years, giving her a rare look behind the magicians cloth to see the inner workings of pub.

    George Egg - The Kitchen At The End Of The Universe (Part 2)

    *This is part 2 of George Egg's episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*
    The Moon Under Water is ready to once again present itself live from within The Dagda Bar within the Edinburgh Fringe festival, and don't we have a cracking guest lined up for you. He's not only one of the funniest comedians around, he's also one of the greatest cooks in both the Other AND the Correct Realm. It's none other than the Snack Hacker himself and all-round good egg... George Egg!
    George has been friends with Landlord John for years (in fact, he recorded the first EVER unreleased episode of The Moon Under Water), so it feels like a full-circle moment welcoming him into the most fabled pub of all. He has exquisite taste when it comes to cooking, so we can only imagine what his dream pub will look like. One things for certain; we can't wait to see what bar snacks are on offer.

Fantastic show and hosts!

I listened to this episode for the charming Sooz Kempner but I really enjoyed the show and have now subscribed!

Best Podcast Ever

Just trying to give ol' Johnny JR the boost this podcast needs. It's about pubs, it's bound to be incredible.

Self absorption

A carbon copy of all the other podcasts where a comedian A invites comedian B on and lives off their involvement for content. Comedian A inevitably goes on Comedian B’s podcast. Nothing original. Jobs for the boys.
I love a lot of what John does, but the upfront Patreon request prior to any content going out takes advantage of his good following.
