Black pudding shock, more from Davros, Imperial Leather soap, the Doobie Brothers and an extended guest feature on the joy of camping
Grumpy owns up to a bit of a mix up with the ISS and is reassured about black pudding in a team meeting. We have more from Davros, tasting notes from trying Santa’s Yumnuts and Lippy announces she won’t be marshalling at the postponed Jigsaw Run next year, and that has nothing to do with it being colder and probably wetter in February. Grumpy has a revelation about the Imperial Soap label and a confession about the Doobie Brothers.
This week we discuss at some length the joy of camping with our first guest, The Frozen Camper. Having camped for over 15 years at Acton Field Campsite near Swanage in Dorset, we amble through the view, shower etiquette, climbing trees, long walks, French mobile phone signals, games and practical jokes.

Mince pies, Marmite & Peanut butter, a new Aldi store, dog bites, Halloween, things dropping from the sky and Google Maps
Lippy explains the history of the mince pie and the excitement of a new Aldi store opening, an avid listener recounts their experience with Marmite and peanut butter (it wasn’t good) and Grumpy suffers a blow to the head by a tree, is bitten by a dog and misses a British Airways 747 landing at Dunsfold all in the same day.
There’s some job news from Lippy, or maybe not, plus we discuss the origin and inevitable commercialisation of Halloween (more of a rant, really), things that drop out of trees and the sky in general onto cars plus has Google Maps lost its way and is causing Crazy Ivans?
Buried deep in the rambling podcast are a few fun facts, but we’re not going to tell you where otherwise you wouldn’t listen to it all!

All female impregnation, the joy of reply-all emails and should mince pies be eaten before December
Lippy attempts to explain all female impregnation, Grumpy has a bit of a rant about reply all emails and opinion is divided whether mince pies should be consumed before December.
Following the inaugural episode last week, both Lippy & Grumpy are stunned to see the download figure, confusion about wife of Grumpy is cleared up, as is the display used in a display pregnancy tester. A major mistake in the editing of the end of last week’s episode suggests that those who said they listened to the end may not have actually done that, or were too polite to point out the glaring error. Meanwhile Grumpy has been sacked from editing and Lippy is taking over.
All this, plus driving licence holograms, netball and a podcast about pirates.
