Really enjoyed this, would love to see the Ken Corda commentaries you mentioned. Didn’t realise that Simon was on Big Train but the wanking in the office sketch was seared onto my brain! A bit like Ken calling a character Jel O on A &J.

Great conversation! Found it joyful to listen to, just a fun couple of guys just chatting shit (which ANYONE can say these days). Great stuff. The latest podcast guests have all been wonderful. Ta!

Great show! Is the Ken Korda / Priory video available online? It sounds hilarious!

Thanks, Syl

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
