EPISODE 249 – a long line of sadists


Hello listeners, and goodbye as we will be off for the next two Thursdays. That’s just enough time for you to listen to a free audiobook, enjoy Martin the Sound Man’s album, subscribe to the other weekly podcast featuring us Let’s Talk About Tech, peruse our back catalogue, and mow the lawn.

And, do not forget, listen to Answer Me This! Episode 249 as well:

Today we discuss:

Michael Jackson’s umbrella
Gaelic warlords
tax trends
The Fugitive vs. fairytales
Harold Wilson vs. Gandalf
the goddess Ériu
Toronto, Kansas
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

Plus: teenage Olly was the lovelorn Bard of txtspk; Helen is going to spend the AMTbreak in Scotland investigating The Mystery of the Missing Sweet and Sour Pork Balls; and Martin the Sound Man won’t sacrifice choice for convenience when it comes to the specific heat capaity of his toast toppings.

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices and Android), we delve further into Chris from Lewes’s question about combining butter with other spreadable substances. Perhaps he’s just ahead of his time! Or perhaps he really is just unbelievably lazy.

You, however, ought not be so lazy that you fail to send us your QUESTIONS for the next series. Leave voicemails on the Question Line by calling 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis; or email answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. Give us something great with which to celebrate AMT250, because we can’t afford a marching band.

Until 28th March, farewell!

Helen & Olly

  1. Chris Says:

    If you watch films about the Battle of Britain all the pilots seemed to smoke pipes and they were about 19. I seem to think that smoking a pipe was associated with being an intellectual or slightly upper class at that time. So what Harold Wilson was smoking, thinking he was getting down with the working classes I don’t know.

    The best thing about pipe smoking is you could go into a tobacconists and ask for a “strong dark shag” and not get arrested!

    It also meant that the tobacconist could retort with “Do you want ready rubbed, or do you rub your own?”

    The Welsh, Walloons and Wallachians all got their names from the same German word. Sez Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wales

    Smuckers has come out with a Peanut Butter and Jelly pre-combined: http://www.smuckers.com/products/category.aspx?groupId=2&categoryId=4

    Why not a butter and jam combo?
