DTD166 Friends Fan Quiz

July 14, 2017

What's Joey's favourite food? Why is Chandler named after a search engine? Who got their teeth whitened and had a smile to blind even someone wearing sunglasses? I've no idea if we'll find out the answers to these questions using this skill but we'll definitely discover similar stuff related to everyone's favourite TV show. Oh and BTW, if you're friends of this podcast please think about rating it on iTunes - thanks oodles.


DTD165 Radio Count Arthur

July 13, 2017

He's pugnacious, he's slightly more than half-senile, but he's really funny (or at least I think he is). He's Count Arthur Strong and I'd recommend you give his radio series a go.

Not your average 'choose your own adventure' game - more a case of medieval estate management with the added spice that the King might, at any moment, chop your jolly old head off.
