At last, Podcast No.9 to be recorded

November 10, 2009

DSCN0553We’re recording a podcast tomorrow. Maybe two. We’ll see if we can talk enough rubbish to make it into a two parter. I suspect we’ll be able to do that.

But you lot always help and you always play your part. Please feel free to leave your comments, questions etc. The etc. being the most exciting parts.

Ask anything. the worst that can happen is we just ignore you. And the more we ignore you, the closer etc. Poor old Morrissey. First he’s ill, then he gets bottle chucked at him. Do you know what I’m on about? I’m not sure I do. I type this furiously whilst I should be doing some work. Of sorts. I’ve never done work work.

I must stop. Please leave us your questions and we will do our best to please. And insult.

Bye. I have been Simon not Trev. If this post seems flimsy, cobbled together, random, well it is. And I, Simon M Hickson, take full responsibility.


Trev and Simon Podcast no. 8

Here’s Podcast No. 8. This podcast contains only minor bad language. Sorry. It’s shorter than usual, only about 45 minutes, but don’t be fooled. That doesn’t mean it’s funnier or better quality. We were out and about for this one sitting outside Ev near Waterloo. Why? Because it was my birthday and me and Trev and his wife Cath had been romping around the West End, seeing Scarface and drinking alcohol. A few friends turn up during the podcast. And a few strangers.

Pot Fish by Sophy, aged 11

Here’s some art by Sophy, aged 11, now, one would hope, in her mid twenties. Well done Sophy. Your art survives.

We’re doing a podcats tonight and we have loads of questions from you all. Thank you. We’ll get through as many as we can, and I will be rude to you all. Maybe. That’s me, Simon. Not Trev. He’s nice. But he could turn. he’s just back from holiday- two weeks in the sun- and now it’s just rain rain rain. Who knows what that will do to him.

Please keep on leaving comments, questions, and if we don’t get round to them this time, maybe next time.
