EPISODE 182 – moderate liberalism


This week we, like you and every other breathing humanoid on this planet and the next, are transfixed by Wills’n’Kate’s working holiday in Canada. WHOSE HAND WILL THEY SHAKE NEXT? The suspense! Yet somehow we have torn ourselves away from the 24-hour royalwatch Jumbotron long enough to bring you Answer Me This! Episode 182:

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)

On our tour of topics, we respectfully nod at the following:

literal popcorn entertainment
Latin puns
orgiastic decor
the Leaning Tower of Pisa vs. the Windsor Crooked House
Jaws vs. Jurassic Park
Frank Gehry
top-down social change
careless fingering
pocket fraud
Wetherspoons trainer snobs.

Plus: Olly doesn’t care what he looks like from behind, so hairdressers, let your imaginations run riot; Helen feels the full benefit of Olly’s wonderful manners; and Martin the Sound Man tells you how to customise your underpants for free. This week’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App (available on iPhone or Android) is a treatise on why James Cameron’s forthcoming Titanic 3D must be stopped, and not just because nobody needs to see “I’m the king of the wooooooorld!” any more vividly realised.

We’re keen to collect as many QUESTIONS as Queen Middleton has bouquets from Canadian children – and to present them to us, you don’t even need to line the streets waving! You merely need to leave voicemails on the Question Line (dial 0208 123 5877 or find answermethis on Skype) or send emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. But by all means imagine us clutching the questions affectionately to our bosoms, asking you a polite question about your charitable works, then moving on to the next prole.

See you next week!

Helen & Olly

    Episode 182 and 183 are missing from the iTunes feed, why is that?

    • helenzaltzman Says:

      I can’t even access our iTunes feed at all this morning, so somewhere there are some super glitches going on! Aside from that, AMT182 and 183 ought to be there as normal, but if not, the MP3 links on this page are your friend.

    Re: holiday snaps at the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
    Renowned photographer Martin Parr took one of the funniest pictures I’ve ever seen on this very subject. It shows numerous people posing as if they’re either propping up or pushing over the Italian landmark, but from an angle that just makes them look insane. You can see it here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2007/sep/09/escape.photography

    Helen, how do you know so much about the history of underpants? First it was ladies’ crotchless pants, and now it’s vinegar and brown paper (I can’t even imagine how that would be worn) in the 1930s. Is there a book somewhere that I should read?

    When listening to the podcast a vague feeling a familiarity came over me when hearing the question regarding sewn up suit pockets. After casting back my mind and going through a bit of the old answer me this I came across the same topic – in episode 135 (approximately 26:30 into the podcast) – and got to listen the same question and same answer.

    Tisk tisk Helen & Olly, letting your standards drop now that you’ve gotten a Sony Radio Gold? 😛

      I thought the same when I heard this episode :). Also Helen, why is it that you post up most episodes and yet you sign off as Helen and Olly?
