Content warning: animal cruelty. In Answer Me This episode 391, we hear about eviscerated rabbits, I’m A Celebrity food-kills, and a zoo in a deadly stunt. But there’s some mysterious dog magic to compensate.

We also consider:

the history of video phones
the baby in Labyrinth
fiction you didn’t realise was science fiction
‘free’ apples
pastry
wedding banns
dog shit
and
going over Niagara Falls in a barrel.

Today’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App – available for Apple and Android – is further intel from August and Joel about banana-containing foods of Sweden. Prepare the stomach-runway for the Flying Jacob!

Hear our other work:
• Helen makes The Allusionist, an entertainment show about language, and Veronica Mars Investigations, recapping every episode of Veronica Mars from the beginning – currently the very stressful end of season 2 is nigh!
• Olly hosts many podcasts, and you can find them all at ollymann.com, including The Modern Mann and The Week Unwrapped.
• Martin makes music which you can hear palebirdmusic.com, on the Pale Bird podcast, and on Spotify etc. You can also join him in contemplating the work of every song by Tom Waits Tom Waits in Song By Song, and he produced and composed the new kids’ science podcast Maddie’s Sound Explorers, hosted by Maddie Moate.

EPISODE 275 – no one wants a furry Meryl Streep

October 17, 2013

The evil Kennedy family portrait

The evil Kennedy family portrait


Hello listeners,

In writing this post, we’ve learnt that the paintings of Helen Daniels are SO dreadful, even Google Images refuses to index many of them. There’s not even an ironic Tumblr collection! The image above was the only shot we could find of the Kennedy klan’s portrait, but it remains as powerfully repellant as ever.

Why have we waved this horrifying visual in front of your eyes? Listen to Answer Me This! Episode 275 to discover:

On today’s slate:

the British Museum
loans for kids
Colosseum 4 Kids
pet heirs
Sir Hans Sloane
covered bridges
melting marshmallows
and
crayon-eating.

Plus: Olly is waiting for the long overdue system update for wooden furniture; Helen’s swerving from pumpkin-spiced lattes; and Martin the Sound Man has identified the point at which he left childhood for adulthood: when he started fancy-talking about his excrement.

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices, Android and Windows) Helen readies herself for the inevitable call asking her to join Gladiators if they ever rereboot it. She may not be match fit, but she’s got her name all picked out.

Until that happens, we will continue to do battle with your QUESTIONS: leave voicemails on the Question Line (call 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis) and send emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com.

This episode was brought to you by the largesse of squarespace.com, who are also offering you a 10% discount off their service if you use the code Answer10 after you’ve used up your two weeks’ free website-building experimental phase.

See you next Thursday,
