Episode 42 – The Funniest Joke of the Year

by | Aug 25, 2023 | 0 comments

In this episode we review the final four contenders from the Mercury Prize list: Loyle Carner, Olivia Dean, Jockstrap, and Young Fathers. Which do we think will win? The Captain plugs series two of an Alexei Sayle podcast, and listens to an informative interview with Scottish writer David Keenan. ElTele is stunned by the best joke from the Edinburgh Fringe, and impressed by football vlogger Nieve Petruzziello, aka StuntPegg.

We end with a rant about gig ticket purchase (again!).
