Half & Half

The bathroom boys have met in the middle, somewhere near Birmingham, at the geographic midpoints between their homes to record a sun kissed episode of two halves.

Chris has brought a Sci-Fi story written with a mystery collaborator and a song about our better halves.
Sam has a breathless beat poem, and a Pu Qu or Ub Iz depending on your outlook on life.

 

 

 

Red Hot Spicy

All hands off the cold tap in this episode: We are getting Red, Hot and Spicy. Chris does some chilli spice training, Sam takes us to 4 hot corners of the globe, Chris teaches us about spices through song, and together they imagine their ideal spicy 90s supergroup and undertake a live spice challenge. Come on in and get HOT.

Paint

The sound of paint: How do you represent a visual medium in an audio platform? Chris and Sam scour the internet for programs to help them achieve SONIC PAINT. They take inspiration from Turner, Picasso and Warhol and craft their own paintings out of yoghurt and bathrooms. And Chris poses the question: 'Can you tell the difference between real Farrow and Ball paint names and made up ones? (Sam cannot).

Football

In this episode Sam and Chris focus on football. Not knowing who they support or what the rules are, Sam and Chris explore the nuances of the beautiful game as best they can. Chris brings a dispatch from a famous ground and a song about a famous player. Sam chants some chants and presents a quiz about footballers and fantasy franchise characters. There is also The World's Worst Keepy Uppy Competition Ever and, of course, some half-time oranges.

Time

In this episode, our time is spent dwelling on 'Time'. Both Sam and Chris experiment with time-manipulated music, Sam takes us through the past in fast forward, Chris presents a game, and together they make completely accurate predictions for the future.

Eggs

In this, the first episode of 2017, Chris and Sam discuss eggs. There is an egg story, an egg rap, some audio scrambled eggs and an egg quiz.

Having learnt lessons from 2016's podcasting, this year's DFTCB episodes will each have a different theme but will be more consistent with our original dispatch format. Expect to see new episodes out on the third Monday of every month.

A Brush With The Stars With Mario D'Agostino

In this episode, Sam and Chris are joined by the linchpin of their ever expanding podcast network, Mario D'Agostino. Coming at the end of a mammoth podcast recording weekend, the guys discuss space and toothbrushes, exploring pulsars both celestial and dental. Elsewhere, Chris attempts a religious ritual and brings a song promoting the avoidance of untimely death while Sam gets us all lathered and excited about a new quiz. Throughout the episode attempts are made to keep Mario on a short leash so that he doesn't go overboard with a particular hyperintrajocularity, but these attempts, for the most part, utterly fail.

Self Improvement

In this special and long-gestating episode, Sam and Chris attempt to improve their lives in a variety of ways, from the daft, sweaty, vague and unmeasurable to the more meditative, mental and meaningful.

Sam reads some books whilst Chris concentrates on particular words. Sam attempts to improve his skateboarding and Chris tries yoga for the first time. Sam seeks to improve his job prospects and Chris invests in some fabric conditioner.

It gets a bit personal and everyone gets a bit happier and healthier.
