EPISODE 209 – the William the Conqueror Suite


Hello, beloved listeners,

It is the 75th birthday of Maltesers, so in Answer Me This! Episode 209 we’re celebrating by berating their current advertising campaign for being sexist. Although we similarly spent Grandad’s 75th birthday party berating him for his unreconstructed chauvinism. Can’t trust these septuagenarians to say the right things.

On the agenda this week:

aerated foods
Debra Winger
Stephen Fry’s cab
organ donation
pink newspapers
Christian barbecues
Arne Jacobsen‘s arse

Plus: Olly lets yet another brilliant enterprise go to waste, but there’s nothing stopping any one of you future billionaires taking it onto Dragon’s Den; Helen finds the world’s best busker – catch him before he goes up in flames; and Martin the Sound Man may be a science whiz, but even he can’t get his macaro(o)ns to work.

It’s quite a literal Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices or Android) this week, as we address a question from Volker from Germany who likes to enjoy himself in the workplace lavvies after lights out. And if this, plus the final question of the episode about WCs, has ramped up your curiosity about matters lavatorial, our video masterwork upon the subject can be viewed at the bottom of this post.

We’re also moonlighting on episode 7 of Ian Collins Wants a Word
, the new podcast by star of AMT149 Ian Collins. Click here to get a dose of it.

Next week will be our last episode before we go on a little holiday, so hurry to send in your QUESTIONS: leave voicemails on the Question Line (dial 0208 123 5877 or Skype answermethis) and email them to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. We’ve got a bit of a treat for you while we’re on our break, though, so be sure to join us for AMT210 to discover what that is. A packet of Maltesers each? NO. Not until those tasty little bastards start treating us all as EQUALS.

See you next Thursday,

Helen & Olly

    Hi there every one, here every one is sharing such experience, thus it’s nice to read this blog, and I used to pay a quick visit this web site everyday.

    So I’m a week or two late on this, but I wanted to chime in on desserts. For one, “New York” cheesecake (aka “cheesecake,” because I don’t know why you call your dessert cheesecake it is weird and seems mostly lacking in cheese of any sort?) has a lot of opportunities for mixing things into it and jazzing it up.

    But one dessert I made once that was a surprising hit was cayenne chocolate cookies. It’s chocolate cookies, which everyone loves, with a bit of heat at the end, which is at least unique enough to be memorable. Also the pepper offsets any perceived girliness of a chocolate cookie, so even the most insecure macho man will not feel bad trying one.

    I work in a building used by the University of Southern California and their sports team is called the Trojans. I have no idea how good they actually are but I’ve always thought that naming an American football team after a group of people whose defence failed so spectacularly was a terrible idea. Maybe the sports department at USC doesn’t have a classical education?
