It's St. Patrick's Day and this week Ant and Tom discuss the man himself and the ritual of getting trollied on a drink noone drinks for the rest of the year while pretending to have some Irish in them! Tom tells a story of St. Paddy's Day spent in Dublin and Ant looks at news stories from past March 17th's. They also introduce a new feature; The ABC's of ABH where they talk about things that relate to them based around a letter of the alphabet... this week's episode is bought to you by the letter A!
The second part of the two-part episode about religion also falls on Mother's Day. Ant and Tom both have Mothers so decided to record this last week so that you don't miss out on an episode and they get to see their Mums - aren't they nice?! Listen to two grown men tie themselves in knots trying not to offend anyone's beliefs and finally get to the core of all religious teachings...perhaps they'll get a Nobel Prize for their stunning conclusion that could help end all wars?! Also we discover the secret - and sad - origin of the day known the world over (though not on the same day) as Mother's Day.
Here's the link to the website Tom talked about towards the end of the episode: http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/uk/mothering-sunday
This week's podcast is another first; it's the first part of a two-parter! Ant and Tom didn't have a clue what they were going to talk about on this episode so they discuss the podcast, remenice about being in a band and shamelessly plug their own music before getting into a topic they said they'd never discuss: Religion...which was such a big issue that th ey had to carry it over into next week's podcast, it's a cliffhanger and a half!
This week Tom and Ant are on their own in Tom's kitchen and discuss the ongoing Oscar Pistorius trial, the Pope's retirement, the Brits and Oscars, not phoning a radio station if you didn't watch the whole game and more bizarre news from The Huffington Post UK including having 'intercourse' with a dog and touching up bad tattoos. So much is crammed into this episode it seems impossible that it's only an hour long!
Here's the link to the stories from Huffington Post; First the story about the Las Vegas wonman who was engaged in intercourse with her dog:
Second, the heart warming story of the tattoo:
In this episode Ant and Tom are joined by Corky again, who comes with the gift of two table mic stands! They also record visually, live on YouTube, which is lucky because the file was lost once more, so the podcast you're hearing is from the visual recording including the gap caused by Tom logging off from the e-mail account. Topics discussed are; Oscar Pistorius, doping in major sport, Valentine's Day and many other things.
