EPISODE 155 – boobs, wounds and guns


Team AMT!

We are delighted to announce that our book is out TODAY. As is, similarly delightfully, Answer Me This! Episode 155:

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 we mention such things as:

premature poppies
‘Barwick Green’
Abi Titmuss
Essential Modern Classics – The Phantom Tollbooth
Banana Skins Slippage Committee
the edible Fleshlight
hostess trolleys
spinning cakestands
marrowfat peas
ten pin bowling, North London Jew-style
British population density vs. Canadian population density
Vince Neil’s eggy crotch.

Plus: Olly laughs and laughs and laughs at poor dead squirrels, because he is a Bad Mann; Helen wishes she still had the rushes of her unofficial audiobook of Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret; and Marti(a)n the Sound Man lays down the law about lasers, which is roughly the same law that Perseus observed when taking on the Gorgons.

This week’s bonus bit on the app is a question from Becky from Westerham about the TP button in her car. What the blazes is the TP button? Toilet paper? Telepathic powers? Total paralysis? Find out only on the app! (Or your own car.)

If you require a bigger dose of our voices than today’s episode provides, then you can hear us on the Guardian’s Media Talk podcast on Friday 5th, the Shaun Keaveny Show on BBC 6 Music at 9am on Monday 8th, and the Late Show with Ian Collins on TalkSPORT at midnight on Tuesday 9th. That enough for you? Hmmm?

There are only fifty shopping days until Christmas*, and seven more shopping days until next week’s episode, so hesitate not to pose your QUESTIONS, by leaving a voicemail on the Question Line 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis, or by firing off an email to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. We look forward to them immensely.

See you next week!

Helen and Olly

*but you don’t even need those, because the Answer Me This! book is the perfect gift for everyone in your life! So thanks to us, you’ve a spare seven weeks to fill with hobbycrafts or waterskiing rather than schlepping round John Lewis. You’re welcome. Don’t say we never do anything nice for you.

    A can of mushy peas, without the can: http://twitpic.com/37helo

    “A can? Pah! I can live without a can to hold me in a can shape!”, said the mushy peas, proudly. Before I put it in the microwave.

    Helen: there is a magazine like you describe – light-hearted human interest stories in a monthly magazine aimed at women. In fact, there are two: Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar. Yes, both still have shitloads of ads for £2000 handbags, but they also have well-written, thought-provoking articles about current events and human interest, and very little about fashion, nail polish, or bonking. Try them out! I prefer VF to HB but they are both good.

    Paul, nope I’m having the same problem.

  4. Paul Says:

    Anyone else have a problem with their iTunes automatically updating? I had to go to the iTunes store and download the individual episode even though I’ve already subscribed.

    Just me..?

  5. Kat from South London Says:

    Hurray! The Archers theme tune is also my ringtone. It went off in an important meeting the other week and oh how the mood was lightened. Not mine, I was faintly mortified, but glad that my Archers adoration was out in the wild for all to see.

    I have also read and super enjoyed the book, which is even better than enjoying it. (My brother had better like the one I am getting him for Christmas, or I shall disown him). But not half as much as the voiceover samples I’ve just found on Olly’s website. I had to turn off the Dreams bed sale one before I actually laughed myself an aneurism.
