Back in July 2012 we released a podcast. It was our first podcast so we called it The Cool Beans Podcast – Episode I. Now, 7 months later, we’re releasing the 2nd podcast. This is one is called The Cool Beans Podcast – Episode II. Now we know a lot of you out there are jealous of our podcast-naming talents, but hey, some people are just born with skills, don’t beat yourself up over it.
Now, the first podcast was mainly nonsense and it had close to 2000 plays/downloads so we figured why the hell change the formula. In fact it gives us great pleasure to introduce another 45 minutes of nonsense for your thirsty ears to lap up. EXTREMELY GREAT PLEASURE.
Sure it may be nonsense but it’s still intellectual nonsense nevertheless (perhaps). Such a wide variety of subjects are tackled here it’s a wonder any of us haven’t been asked to appear as guests on Newsnight, Question Time or Blue Peter. Topics include consumerism, fitness, advertising, skin damage, the homeless, Sheffield trends, pets, fancy dress parties, speaking french and internet memes. And on top of all this the devilishly good-looking Jack Athey stops by to chat about his past, an online blogger reveals how you make the perfect cup of tea, Ham Pocket receive non-fan mail from a Mexican calypso act and Professor Terry Dix talks science.
You can subscribe to us on iTunes here. If you listen to/download the podcast you’ll make us very happy and you will be helping us combat our current afflictions (Dom – alcoholism, Andy – depressionism, Chris – fatbackism). Hell we may even manage to get the third one out before 2014. No promises though. We have busy lives to lead that include looking at dogs in costumes on the internet whilst wearing hot pants and guzzling pints of melted lard.
Anyway, enough waffle. Sit back, grab a beer and enjoy The Cool Beans Podcast – Episode II: Knocking About.
Big thanks to Alexis (Wet Nuns), Carling Extra (Temple of Coke) and Nigel Tu (Peking Comedy).
Even bigger thanks to Ed Donnellan AKA Gimpo who provided the jingles, music and many guest voices.
Much love. X
