Well this is it, listeners. After 14 years and 8 months and many thousands of questions, AMT400 is the last episode of the show. Sob!! But we’re surfing out of here on a wave of your lovely, lovely messages – as well as a British Podcast Award for hanging in there for so damn long – and some excellent questions about such things as:

sky dining – no not sky diving, sky dining
the difference between shepherding and nursing
the unreasonable popularity of Fiji Water
saving Joni Mitchell’s childhood home
destroying William Shakespeare’s final home
Barbie vs Lilli
Anish Kapoor’s expensive sculpture vs Anish Kapoor’s expensive sculpture
Swiss Barbie
the real Sherlock Holmes?!
homing pigeons
arsenic girl.

The songs you hear were sent in by MJ Fouldes and Hannah Ventisei. Thanks so much to all of you who sent in lovely messages – and songs! – with your AMT-related emotions and memories. We could only include a tiny fraction of your affection in the episode, but know that we read/listened to everything. And maybe wept over it all a bit, too.

You’ll hear a few more of your AMT memories, plus bonus questions and answers about reheating McDonald’s cheeseburgers, the pleasantness of trans-Atlantic crossings 250 years ago, regretting the person you chose to bequeath your children to, life drawing classes, and ruined birthdays (we’re so sorry, Beth!), in today’s Bumper Bonus Bit of Crap on the App. As it’s a special occasion, you can listen to even if you don’t own the app, by downloading here or clicking on this player:

    Goddamn it- I meant Helen and Olly!

  2. Anna Brophy Says:

    Just… thanks so much. You’ve seen me through so many tough times, and now seeing me through a move from London to Budapest. Thanks so much Helen and Ollie 💕

  3. Cheers Says:

    Fantastic work but to think that this is the end of the podcast now is too sad and it will be a while before I can go back and listen to them again. All the very best.

  4. lolarusa Says:

    Dang it! I just heard about you *last month*. And I’ve been listening to the Allusionist for years. Why didn’t you ever tell me about AMT?

  5. Bram Says:

    I haven’t had the chance to listen to podcasts in a few months.. I come back and the show is officially over. I can’t even begin to express my emotion. It’s been about 10 years of this hilarious banter in my ears; through so many damn commutes, college lab work, and eventually just work. Good luck moving forward guys, I regret that I missed my chance to email a proper farewell.

    Well.. off to the store, gotta buy the whole damn show while one still can : )

  6. Jack Says:

    Thanks guys, loved the podcast for years.
    Really going to miss it.

  7. Corey Gray Says:

    You guys have been there for a decade in my life. Thank you

  8. Michael Says:

    Hey, thanks for the podcast! I’ve been listening for over a decade – since I was in my *twenties* – and it’s been great fun. You even answered my question (Martin said it was the most stupid thing he’d ever heard).

    Good luck out there, and if you ever feel like doing any more albums, or a cash-in live show, I’m sure we’ll all be there for it.
