EPISODE 235 – good British pizza


YES. There are still a few days left till the polls, so America, put all your support behind one AMTfan’s campaign to get Helen’s mum to be your president.

Also, everybody everywhere, listen to Answer Me This! Episode 235:

Today we consider:

the phrase ‘When in Rome’
in-store radio stations
Jim Carrey’s canine car
Paul the psychic octopus
Daryl Denim
supermarket censorship
James Bond’s eccentric tastes
money-grabbing Methodist missionaries.

Plus: Olly looks into his political crystal ball and sees Condi there; Helen broke a letter chain as a child, so little wonder she is a lonely layabout now; and Martin the Sound Man needs to delete his search history before we all find out why he knows such a lot about horse fluffers.

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices and Android) we examine how the scandal raging around Jimmy Savile could have devastating effects…upon the cement industry.

If you’d like to see us hold forth about podcasting in front of a very yellow Powerpoint presentation, click here to view the video of our talk at Next Radio. And/or if you would like us to return next week with more AMT, send us QUESTIONS: email answermethispodcast@googlemail.com; leave voicemails on the Question Line by calling 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis.

See you next Thursday!

Helen & Olly

    I realise this is a little late….but, just caught up with this episode. And there was talk of puns in the media if Condoleezza Rice ran for and won a presidential election…..

    Im suprised that you did not go for the obvious pun that i assume the daily mail/fox news would use. Say, the situation in Israel & Palestine was sorted out by her….SURELY they would say ‘Rice And Peace’ ?

    ….i’ll get my coat…..

    I went to medical school with someone who later spent some time being the doctor in antarctica. According to a mutual friend, he did indeed have his (perfectly normal) appendix removed before he went.

  3. Chris Says:

    The Facebook ‘chain letters’, or ‘Like this picture of a dog with cancer, if you ignore you agree with everything hitler did.’, are for making money. The more likes a page gets, the higher the EdgeRank which means it’s appears in more peoples news feeds. These pages are then sold the content stripped out and replaced with whatever the buyer wants, and will appear on the thousands of news feeds that liked the picture of sick child because ‘likes = donations’, (Facebook do not donate $1 for every like).

  4. James C. Says:

    Regarding “Rice and Beans,” the woman Rice lives with in a house they bought together is Randy Bean. That’s also probably why she has repeatedly said she will never run for office. Not so much because of the pun as because of the “pro-choice liberal who lives with a woman and teaches at a liberal elite university in liberal California and only aligns with Republicans on foreign policy and only got into the White House by being a friend of Bush’s and would never pass a Republican party primary election where you have to prove you’re more conservative than Reagan to win” thing. But the “Rice and Bean” pun is probably also a factor.
