Soda Sommeliers!


TizerThis week, I make Johnson try various British sodas, and along the way we learn about e-numbers, tidy man and dwarf suicide. Then, we compare Captain Birdseye and the Gorton’s Fisherman to see who’s better at selling fish and shagging mums. Then we open some listener mail from Raphael, Carol, Lindsay, Gary and Jeff – most of whom nag me about posting shows more often. Tch!

Links: the tizer ad, the two Irn-Bru ads here and here, the two Bird’s Eye fish finger ads here and here, the two Gorton’s ads here and here, the Milton Keynes Pancake Day article, and the Dump Meals photo. Phew!

Dandelion & Burdock


DandBA packed show this week! Firstly, we have a guest called Patti, so I explain why I have trouble saying her name. Then I show off my “black man’s pinch,” which gets us into the wacky world of soft drinks. Then I prove that America was, in fact, named after an Englishman, which leads us to play a round of “Panama Canal – The Price Is Right.” Then we discuss dustmen, dustcarts, dustbins and in short, all things dust. Then Jochen writes in about Tommies and Jerries, and finally we moan about Domnhall Gleeson being in bloody everything these days. Enjoy! Oh: The baby Bee-Gees singing about dustmen are here.
