Thursday Listening Party

September 24, 2015

On the Thursdays with no new AMT, we crank up the spoken word audio and have a Thursday Listening Party.
Click here to attend all previous gatherings.

We loved him in The Adam and Joe Show; we loved him on Adam and Joe’s BBC 6 Music show; we loved him in AMT300; so imagine the joy that swelled in our hearts when we saw that Adam Buxton has a new podcast! Additional joys: the first episode features Louis Theroux and BaaadDad.

There was a real amateur sleuth case in ‘Angie‘ by Criminal; it’s really compelling stuff. Likewise the 99% Invisible about missing children on milk cartons – it has become such a common trope, I had no idea the real campaign only lasted a couple of years. (Oh, and if you want cookies with your milk, of course 99PI has sorted you out too.)

I’m not going to apologise for plugging another Radiotopisibling‘s show, because the Resolution episode of Benjamen Walker’s Theory of Everything was the thing I most enjoyed listening to this month.

What’s in your ears, dears? Recommend shows in the comments.

In AMT323, we learnt about Venetian gondolas, preparing snails for eating, and Olly’s ranking of the various versions of Coca Cola. Go to to catch up, slowpoke.

Olly has been gallivanting in Vegas for Guardian Tech Weekly, and I’ve been gallivanting at home to make the latest Allusionist. I’ll wager that it’ll be the only linguistics podcast containing werewolves AND Step Up 4 that you’ll hear. Find it at Oh, and Martin the Sound Man’s new podcast, Song By Song, launches this weekend! Put on some clean undies and get ready for a Tom Waits earparty.


EPISODE 239 – Reich Krispies

November 29, 2012

Hi listeners,

So that unfeasibly rich child from Two and a Half Men says you should not watch Two and a Half Men because it is pisspoor FILTH and THE ENEMY’S PLAN.

As usual there’s some mild FILTH in Answer Me This! Episode 239. Can’t disclose the enemy’s plans; you’ll have to interpret them yourself when you listen:

Today we consider:

The Queen 4 Harry Styles
Australian Xmas
chocolate crispy cakes
immoral i-spying mums
helmets vs. head injuries
AMT1-120 vs. THX 1138
Simon Cowell’s corruption
beleaguered Morrisons mums
sweeties from Firebox
Oxford Street Marmite lights
the Royal Variety Performance
Heston’s Food Panto
wedding politics
pants photosynthesis
being microwaved to death.

Plus: Olly blows bubbles out of his bum; Helen calls for tougher gum laws; and Martin the Sound Man is pleased you all seem to like his package.

This week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices and Android) is more hot air from Olly, as he recounts how he burped into a stranger’s face. Luckily, because Olly couldn’t hear it at the time, it DID NOT COUNT.

Your QUESTIONS definitely do count, so please email them to or leave voicemails on the Question Line by calling 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis.

See you next Thursday,

Helen & Olly
