After The Beast From The East put paid to them recording last week Ant and Tom are back, despite the not quite so bad snow.
Being British they spend a lot of the first part of the episode talking about the unseasonal weather… or is it?
Ant went to see American pop-punkers The Atiaris a couple of weeks ago and Tom went to see Feeder last night, so many stories of gigs including memories of the Astoria and enjoying seeing professional musicians mess things up.
Lots of Marvel talk again as Ant got to see Black Panther, Jessica Jones series two has started (a conversation prompted by a live text exchange between Tom and Smokey of Rated H), the second Trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped. Ant also started watching DC’s Netflix series, Black Lightning.
It’s been a weird month for celebrity casualties what with Kevin Smith’s heart attack and the passing of Ken Dodd, Jim Bowen and Stephen Hawking.
The show ends on the very British problem of how you take your cream tea (ooh err missus!), Devon or Cornwall. A simple administration error nearly lost the National Trust a load of money in subscription fees.

The first show of the 3rd year of the Anywhere But Here podcast has a brand new theme tune, which totally throws Tom for a loop… honest!
Neither Ant or Tom seem to have had any time to keep up with the news, so take this opportunity to explain the show to new listeners and to remind old listeners – including themselves – about why the show is called what it is and what the general theme of the show is: “I’d rather be anywhere but here”.
They go on to discuss the demise and reemergence of page 3 girls in The Sun and reminisce about internet porn in the days before broadband and streaming. This leads on to a chat about feminism in advertising.
Tom talks about his packed weekend of work including being taken to the football by a customer who has a box. None of the people who went like football, but they all like free food and drink! Ant compares it to his experiences of watching bands from corporate boxes and whether or not the atmosphere is lost.
Ant saw The Theory of Everything, so the guys had a conversation about a film they’ve both seen, which is a rarity. They also touch upon the Oscar nominations, but decide to leave their predictions for closer to the time. Plus, they’ve not seen all the trailers for the other films yet!

Ant and Tom congratulate Ellen Page for coming out at and equal right campaign event in Las Vegas this week and discuss her status as a role model and what it could mean for her career.
The boys have both been to gigs this week; Ant went to see Zebrahead, Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish and Tom went to see Frank Turner supported by Beans On Toast and Flogging Molly. They admit to the fact they’re getting old, stating that they just wanted to sit down in the stands with a beer rather than be in the heart of the crowd. Bizarrely, the conversation moves from music to getting in and out of London, especially to the O2 Arena and the price of parking in London!
Tom then starts a debate on whether David Guetta is right to make a song called ‘Shot Me Down’ less than 10 years since the Audio Bullys’ ‘Shot You Down’ took the charts by storm and was featured on the soundtrack to ‘Kill Bill’. This leads Tom to showcase his amazing ‘talent’ for song writing, in the vein of Mr Guetta.
Morrissey drops by to read another extract of his Autobiography and has a chat with Ant (Tom stays strangely quiet!) about the allegations made against him by Piers Morgan.
Ant closes out the show with a couple of sad news articles followed by a less sad one from Norway where a 10 year old boy crashed his parent’s car and claimed to police officers that he was a dwarf who’d left his driving licence at home, which is absolute genius!
A very special guest visits this week, the other half – and face – of Mooli comes in to chat. Amongst many other things we get an insight into her life from not fitting in at college to her leaving her day job to become a full-time musician. It sure is a roller coaster of a tale!
