Hi Adam, I’m really enjoying having your regular podcast updates back - this one was great. Just wanted to make a honey on toast suggestion: whole grain toast, peanut butter, slices of banana and honey drizzled on top. It’s the food of gods. Bye!

Adam!
I’ve really enjoyed your podcast - been listening on my daily commute and I like your style of conversation and choice of guests.

You mentioned a loaf-size snickers, well I made one! It was 100 times bigger than a standard bar, and we documented it via Pimp That Snack, and gave it the old fashioned name of Marathon and on.

We sliced it like a loaf, but each slice was about the size of five normal bars. It took us about four weeks to eat (might have been quicker if we’d added honey).

Keep up the good podcasting. You’re better than you give yourself credit for.

Cheers,
- Oli

A random out-of-the-blue eggcorn to add to your collection. My 4 yr old excitedly announces whenever naked: "Party suit!!"

I believe Roisin and yourself may find this very tempting:

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
