In this very special, landmark edition of the Anywhere But Here Podcast Ant and Tom decide not to pat themselves on the back for sticking at something for 100 weeks in a row. This time they throw the love and respect back at you, the listeners of the show.
This show comprises of chats with actual listeners who don’t record their own podcasts, just to get a feel of who they are and why they like independent podcasts like this one so much.
There would have been more people on the show had it not been for the last minute nature of the idea for the show and some bouts of shyness. Certain listeners just want to be listeners, which is perfect.
Learn a bit about, Paul McEvoy, and his musical projects including the rock opera – ‘Gorillian’ – about a genetically modified gorilla who goes on a rampage through Victorian England and America before blasting into the stratosphere! And, the one and only Robbie Polanco, the Bostonian who is trying to find out how to create the next ‘Super Man’ in an underground military facility, while listening to all the podcasts he can!
Ant and Tom had a lot of fun putting this episode together and hope you have fun listening to it. But also extend their thanks to the silent majority; those of you who listen week-in-week-out without getting in touch. They hope you enjoy it and would love to get to know you too.
Lastly all of us at the Anywhere But Here Podcast Network wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let us know what you get up to.

This first episode after the last two celebration shows struggles to get back to a semblance of a structure, so Ant and Tom take it back to their go to subjects: music and films.
Topics covered include Led Zeppelin stealing song structures from other artists and their own experiences with plagiarism in their own band, High Frequency. Tom finally gets round to watching the music documentary, Sound City, so the pair discuss that a year on from when it was originally brought up by Ant.
Tom brings up the fact that Back to the Future is being made into a musical, the news of which is met with trepidation, much the same as the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel. DC vs. Marvel is discussed and the guys come to the realisation that it’s futile to compare the two, however it is interesting that Man of Steel took roughly the same as Superman Returns back in 2006. Ant finally got round to seeing The Muppets and isn’t as enthralled by it as Tom which leads to a stunned silence.
Finally they talk about rap battles on the net, the fact that Barack Obama is going to have to address the Justin Bieber problem because an online petition got nearly three times the amount of signatures it needed to be raised as a subject for debate by government.
The big revelation of the show is that Busta Rhymes has started making up words in his latest song, ‘Thank You’. But, they let him get away with it because he is a legend. Piggety Poof!
Ant and Tom decide to catch up on a few of the news stories they’ve missed out on in the last couple of weeks. Because of the banked episodes and themed episodes that have been recorded in the last couple of months there have been stories sent in by listeners that have been put on the back burner.
So, we discuss the reaction to the iPhone 5S and 5C, what the difference actually is and whether it’s worth buying it or another brand of phone altogether. Then, there are British people having sex with Land Rovers, kebab shop counters and goats, a sky scraper melts a car in London, a woman gets slung out of McDonalds in Oxfordshire for injecting herself… with insulin for her diabetes, while, in America, a woman attacks a drive-thru worker for not being able to sell her Chicken McNuggets.
The state of Iowa has allowed legally blind people the right to own firearms in which Ant and Tom debate whether people with visual impairments should own guns at all. There is terrifying 3 metre long Bobbit Worm that can cut a fish on half and could be living in an aquarium near you. NASA also respond to a 7 year old’s letter asking if he can be an astronaut one day, which is really heart warming and a great way to end the show.
In the ABCs this week Tom talks about his love of Transformers and the travesty which are Michael Bay’s films and And thanks the listeners/viewers who have been contributing recently. Thank you.
