EPISODE 268 – you’ll just be left with a really fat lion


Hello listeners,

Although August is coming to a close, and with it the Edinburgh Fringe, there’s still just enough time to incorporate our grade-A publicity techniques into your show. Learn from the masters in Answer Me This! Episode 268:

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

In which we also consider:

ark logistics
glacier cherries
Peter Nichols’ Passion Play
Noah’s flood vs. the great flood of Edgware
transporting whales
E number 127
aeroplane seat-reclining etiquette
endless Chorus Line
war poetry
Barry Scott.

Plus: Olly warns you not to sit behind him on a flight, as he provides his own, er, jet propulsion; Helen still regrets inadvertently reviving the Al Jolson look for Edinburgh Fringe punters; and Martin the Sound Man fails the ‘name the artificial colourant in the glacé cherries’ game.

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App, which is available for iDevices and Android, Helen tells you the magic trick with which you can WOW your friends (or thoroughly disappoint them if all they wanted was a nice refreshing orange).

Don’t disappoint us: send us your nice refreshing QUESTIONS. Leave voicemails on the Question Line (call 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis) and send emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. If we answer them, as Barry Scott would say: bang, and the doubt is gone.

See you next Thursday,

Helen & Olly

AMT268 Child-Friendly Rating: 75%. In the aftermath of AMT267, this episode opens with further discussion of virginity loss, with concomitant references to genitalia and sexual practices. However the rest of the episode is clean beans, aside from a couple of swears.

PS Because we’d never leave you with an endless Chorus Line:

    I could not agree more with Helen’s policy on reclining seats.
    I never recline my seat either out of politeness. Also because I once crossed my legs on a flight and when the man in front of me reclined his seat onto my legs, they were painfully, trapped. He was so oblivious to my moaning that I had to tap him on the head to get him to move it. I have never even considered reclining since then.

  2. James C. Says:

    If Noah’s Ark rose above the peaks of the highest mountains for weeks, everyone and every animal would have died of asphyxiation.

  3. Claire Says:

    It seems like Barry Scott is the English version of Billy Mays. In the states, Billy Mays was, without doubt, the most popular and well known sales man on television. More popular, even, than Ron Popeil, who actually MADE the things he was selling on TV. Billy Mays has sold everything from health insurance, to cleaning products, to garden tools, and he was so popular here until his death in 2009, he has a Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Mays) and an auto-tuned tribute anthem on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpJGZ9RHAvU).

    He was not a well-known person before he began endorsing products on TV, but he was such an effective salesman, he actually became a celebrity in his own right. RIP Billy Mays.
