EPISODE 211 – do you want finalisation?


Hello again, hello!

There may be a drought across much of England, but the podcast drought is OVER. For we have returned from our break, and Answer Me This! Episode 211:

Subscribe to AMT! on iTunes listen to the MP3 through your computer our podcast feed on Libsyn Share with Facebook

We talk upon such subjects as:

the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players
Las Vegas for squares
those cool Chinese takeaway cartons
piratical weddings
theme bars
crazy neighbours
wash vs. pre-wash
three-pin vs. two-pin
Ludwig Müller vs. Ludwig Müller
Nazi spectacles
sexy bumblebees.

Plus: with his usual acumen, Olly proposes how to transform a psychotic neighbour problem into a business opportunity; Helen’s parents are being very thrifty with the internet, so that the IP addresses don’t all run out on their account; and we should clarify that Martin the Sound Man’s former job, which he describes as ‘making a man with a tube up his penis laugh’, was in the field of medical physics, not stand-up comedy for catheter fetishists.

Because one pot is never enough, there’s also more about Müller Yogurt on this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices or Android), including their contribution to West Midlands athleticism, and their retrograde marketing wheezes. They might be 116 years old, but they’ve still got it.

If you haven’t already, please do take a punt on our Top 20 (!!) album, The Answer Me This! Jubilee, comprised of fifty-seven minutes of all-new material in anticipation of the Queen’s jubblies. You can also hear us on the latest episode of Ewan Spence’s ESC Insight podcast – no, that’s not ESC as in the Electrical Safety Council or the Essex Skating Club, but the Eurovision Song Contest. Click here to listen, and hear how we rated some of the songs vying for Eurovisionary Glory this year.

After all that, do remember to send us your QUESTIONS with which we will fuel this new series of AMT: aim voicemails at the Question Line (dial 0208 123 5877 or Skype answermethis) and emails at answermethispodcast@googlemail.com.

See you next week!

Helen & Olly

    My favourite episode ever!

    Thinking about it, I can think of a handful of places that serve noodles in Noodle Boxes in Glasgow, including the new one next to the ABC. I think it tastes better because you feel like you are in a movie.

    The carboard is waxed on these things, and you can happily store noodle juice for about a week in these things before the folds start to soggify.

    I have seen really similar boxes in Japan, but used for fancy bakeries to package goods.

    I can highly recommend Blue Ginger in Manchester for a Chinese takeaway that delivers in white cardboard boxes.

  4. Ian from Florida Says:

    Wait, you don’t have Renaissance Festivals–or Faires if that’s how you roll–in your country? Do you also lack anime conventions? And My Little Pony gatherings? Oh god please get me out of this country.

    An interesting quirk about these Faires is that they’re really not too specific to a time period. There are people who look like knights from the middle ages with big swords, and next to them would be a fencer from Three Musketeers. And then some people go a step into fantasy or steampunk, and there’s always that one guy who has to be a time traveler. It’s great fun, or at least adequate fun, but once a year is more than enough for me.

    Lastly, really cool talk by Martin, thanks for sharing… does he always dress like a Physics Professor?

    Thanks for the voice of sanity Helen. You must never, EVER invite creepy car-wash fetish guy into your house. Having said that, I’m not sure that smearing your car in excrement or torching it is necessarily the sanest way out of it. Or that it would actually work…
