EPISODE 286 – code with a condom

March 27, 2014

Hello listeners!

Very exciting news: we’ve made a Radio 4 documentary to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the word ‘podcast’. It’s in two installments, out at 11am on Friday 4th and 11th April. It features many podcasting luminaries – including Marc Maron, Roman Mars, Keith and the Girl, Theresa Thorn, Betty in the Sky, the Buglers, the Night Valers, and also our old adversary Richard Herring. If you can’t wait for eight whole days to hear us talk to him, listen to the recent RHLSTP in which we air all that dirty laundry.

Amid all this talk of other things to listen to, don’t forget to apply yourself to Answer Me This! Episode 286:

In which we discuss:

castles
Oktoberfest
chilled red wine
velvet ropes
decorative sticks
babysitting vs kitten-sitting
Mardi Gras vs Pancake Day
Navajo rugs vs dreamcatchers
Glastonbury scheduling
EcuadorPanama hats
London’s cat cafe
mythical bestiality
and
the first ever porn film.

Plus: Olly was all business, no pleasure at his school leavers’ ball; Helen prefers the pong of garlic breath to perfume; and Martin the Sound Man worries about worldly souvenirs making him into a bellend. Don’t worry Martin, you were already a bellend! JK. (Or is it?)

Today’s Bit of Crap on the App contains more perfume-chat, in which Olly sabotages any future he had as a department store perfume salesperson. Pinch your nose and spray the app into your ears from your iDevices, Android or Windows gadgets.

Here’s something that doesn’t stink: today’s episode-funders Squarespace.com offering you a 10% discount off their services for a whole year if you use the code answer3. What a breath of fresh air!

And finally, we ask that you take a deep breath and send us your QUESTIONS: call the Question Line (call 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis) or email answermethispodcast@googlemail.com.

Back in a fortnight!

Helen & Olly

AMT286 Child-Friendly Rating: 42%. First three quarters are clean, apart from a couple of questioneer-led swears. The episode ends on a question about porn films, but by then your children will probably have fallen asleep during the earlier question about road signs.

If you’ve ever thought, “Jeez. I wonder what goes into making an episode of the incredibly effortless-seeming Answer Me This!,” then firstly, you should consider having more interesting thoughts. Secondly, you should check out our interview on Little Atoms podcast, in which host Neil Denny came to the AMT studio to peek behind the curtain to imspect the machinery behind it.

Click here to download the episode, but don’t do it if you were incredibly traumatised when you found out that the Wizard of Oz [SPOILER!] was just a normal middle-aged guy with good stagecraft and a penchant for hot air balloons. Hearing podcasters revealing the mechanics of podcasting might finish you off.

One aspect of AMT behind the scenes which we’re happy to reveal: our perennially sumptuous cheeseboard. Here’s Neil getting involved.

Last month we spoke at Next Radio, an event all about radio attended by the great and good of the radio industry.

“What the heck can you two chancer hobbyists have to teach the radio industry about radio?” you ask.

Fair point. We went for a kind of This is Your Life trot through our podcasting experiences, and here is the video footage. Warning: contains some gross images.

You can see videos of the other talks on the Next Radio site. Thanks very much to James Cridland and Matt Deegan for inviting us.

This week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices or Android) is a question from Alex from Northampton about calorie-counting bores. Talking about calorie-counting makes you put ON weight, dullards!

No questions, no show! We’re not too polite to resort to blackmail.

See you next Thursday,
