EPISODE 122 – a really cool X Files-themed cocktail bar


Hello pals!

So Simon Cowell has left American Idol. Rumours he’s jumped ship to Answer Me This! are unsubstantiated. Because they’re completely fabricated! But let’s start one, just for giggles.

This classic episode is available to BUY NOW for just 79p at the Answer Me This! Store, through a secure server, without DRM restriction. CLICK HERE to find out more and support our podcast. (This helps keep our most recent episodes free)

This week:

the revolving restaurant in Berlin
venereal disease
junior wine buffs
A Serious Man
culinary innovation in Streatham
Simon Armitage
the wrath of Kate Winslet
Dr Cilla Black.

In addition: Olly demonstrates why he should never be made editor of the Oxford Etymological Dictionary; Helen spots the hidden messages to the Russians in sweetie adverts; and Martin the Sound Man does NOT want to have sex with you in a toilet. Not even if you ask really nicely. We also hear about one of our listener’s friendship dealbreakers – if you have one of your own, share it in a comment below. Because we all enjoy other people bitching about their dear friends, don’t we?

  1. House Training A Dog Says:

    Despite coming across as a massive jerk on TV, Simon is actually a great guy. He does a lot for charity. Top bloke.

  2. Kieran Says:

    One major deal breaker for me was when I found out that an old friend of mine had turned into a neo-nazi and I saw photos of him from a nazi camp in mainland europe (it looked like a corperate team building weekend with a bit more beer and swastikas) that he’d traveled over from England for combined with some compleatly stupid facebook quiz’s he’d done (such as “which member of the nazi party are you” – he got Hitler) and the accompanying anti-islam/jew/immigrant/ethinic group thats not white europian groups. Being someone with an immigrant for a mum and not a fucking idiot I wasn’t a fan of this change.

  3. Patrick RS Says:

    I’m a lifelong vegetarian and a friendship deal breaker for me is people waving lumps of meat in my face at meals and saying “I bet you wish you were eating this…”

    No. No I don’t.

  4. Misha Says:

    I’ve recently had a big fall out with a friend of mine, because she can’t accept that I don’t like going clubbing. I’ve got mild aspergers syndrome, and she knows this (it means I react badly to dark, loud, crowded and confusing places) but still insisted on trying to make me go out clubbing. We’re not friends now.

    • James (Sheffield) Says:

      I hate clubbing anyway.

      I think that Helen’s analysis of ‘clubbing’ on an episode a few months ago justifies this viewpoint!
      Something along the lines of “you queue for ages, to pay too much to go to a party where you don’t know anyone and the drinks are too expensive” 🙂

  5. James (Sheffield) Says:

    I usually will have trouble being friends with someone if they are racist, sexist or homophobic. Or Asian, or a woman…

    Those last two were jokes – I hope I got away with it! 🙂

  6. Marcus Cleaver Says:

    One of my friends uses “if it’s any consolation…” in almost every sentence. We are still friends though because every once in a while I vent my frustration and say that said point is of no consolation whatsoever.

  7. Kelley Says:

    Deal Breakers: Friends that always seem in a life competition with you. Everytime you see them all they want to talk about is something new they bought or something great that happened to them. I am happy for friends when something good happens but it is really annoying when it seems like that is the only reason they want to hang out. My husband and I had another couple we had been friends with since college. It seemed like as soon as we graduated the only time they wanted to hang out was when they bought a new house, or car, or to brag about a new job and to say they were engaged before us. It was like they were in a competion to see which couple was the most successful since graduation. Needless to say we no longer talk to them.

    • Kelley Says:

      Martin the Soundman,

      What is the name of the X-files themed cocktail bar you visited in Berlin?
      That is my favorite show of all time so I would love to visit it if I make it over to Berlin. Thanks.

  8. brendan Says:

    One of my friends wonts stop saying boobs or talkin really loudly when he see a girl he likes its sooooo fucking annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Brucie Says:

    Agree wholeheartedly with Sara.

  10. dsjoy2006 Says:

    Are you sure you’re not getting ‘friends’ mixed up with ‘Jehovah’s Witnesses’? They are ALWAYS smoking when I am with them.

  11. Sara Says:

    Things that I can’t stand in friends: People who try to convert me or save my soul. If they can’t wrap their head around the fact that I’m a happy agnostic and have no interest in their religion then I have to stop seeing them. That and smoking when we’re together.
