EPISODE 330: Huey, Dewey, Louie and Phooey

Happy new year to you, listeners, and here’s your first dose of AMT for 2016. In Answer Me This! Episode 330, we ponder upon:

All Saints – not the band, the shop
Della Duck
Air Force One
boxing belts
remembering people’s names
Tom Cribb vs Tom Molyneux vs George Foreman Grills
Carson vs Alfred vs Jeeves
the psychology of Hampton Court
presidential decoys
Jacuzzi bubbles.

Plus: Olly dreams of being like Kathy Bates (in About Schmidt, not in Misery); in the Battle of the Butlers, Jeeves is Helen’s man – even if he’s a ‘gentleman’s gentleman’ rather than a butler; and Martin the Sound Man makes a new friend in the jacuzzi.

In today’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App – available for iThings, Android and Windows devices – we consider a sporting event that appeals to fans of both board games and blood sports: chessboxing.

Thanks very much to today’s sponsor Squarespace.com, who’ll give you 10% off their website-building and -hosting services for a year if you invoke the code ANSWER. And if you do so, you’re showing Squarespace that they should continue supporting this show, so we all win. Unlike chessboxing, which we’d probably all lose.

There’re no prizes for asking us questions, only answers: leave voicemails on the Question Line – call 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis – and send emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. Befriend us online at facebook.com/answermethis and twitter.com/HelenAndOlly.

SCHEDULING ANNOUNCEMENT: Olly’s baby is due out imminently. AMT331 will land on 28th January 2015, and after that, we’ll be taking three months off for paternity leave. We’ll let you know any news about the Mannbaby as soon as it/he arrives!

    Love your shown first of all. Secondly I just wanted to say, for the record, Jeeves was not a butler. He was a valet. A gentleman’s gentleman…

    Has anyone pointed out that MoneySavingExpert appears to be taking “inspiration” from your podcasts for their moral dilemmas:



    Best form of flattery and all that…

  3. Heloltin Says:

    stop complaining about how hard it is to make the podcast, or how much time it takes, or any of the other complaints you’ve made consistently over the past few years. we get it. it’s hard. take a break, or make it every other week and move on. just please stop justifying your decision to us. it makes it seem like you are complaining that we are not grateful enough.

    • Helen Zaltzman Says:

      That’s an odd interpretation, Heloltin. We’re not seeking gratitude; however, we tend to get a lot of complaints when we take so much as a week off, so we have to mention it because listeners other than you need to hear it.

  4. Steve Says:

    Jacuzzi is such a generic name for hot tubs that it’s funny seeing it applied to anything else, especially toilets. http://www.jacuzzi.com/baths/all-toilets/
