Episode 276 - The Long Dark Teatime of Back to the Eighties


It's Becca's turn to spotlight this week, and she's chosen to look at a Douglas Adams endeavour you may not be familiar with - Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency!

Of course we mention Hitchhiker's and his time on Doctor Who as well, because well, Douglas Adams.

So sit back, relax, have a cup of tea and enjoy the whimsy and Wodehousian dialogue, because next week, Paula spotlights something truly terrifying...

Episode 274 - Coming Out Of Their Shells


This week, it's time for a bit of a chat about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in all of their various forms, so who better to join Glenn and Sam than Stacey Taylor, co-host of the Podcast in a Half Shell and Mistress of Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour?

It's not just about the Turtles though, so expect some talk not only about the current state of the WWE, but also about the brand new Tick pilot starring Peter Serafinowicz!

Cowabunga, dudes!
