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.
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.
For their 2nd annual celebration of pizza the boys from DFTCB write 50 songs about pizza featuring a special guest appearance from Chris Gethard.
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.
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.
In homage to 12 Hour Day with JD and Connor, Sam and Chris attempt to record a podcast for 12 hours. They go to their parents houses, meet some of the leading lights of the Sheffield comedy scene, and end up at a folk session in the pub.
In this, the final soak in the virtual bathroom, Sam and Chris prepare to say goodbye to their respective homes in France and Chapeltown.
In a particularly bathroomy episode, Chris brings a bathroom-fixated reworking of a classic folk song and Sam encourages us to take some sexy pics in the bathroom.
Damien McHugh sends a guest dispatch he made on an ancient phone and, as promised in Episode 18, we have two dispatches about DFTCB Facebook page 100th liker. Molly Ibbitson was the lucky(?)winner and she may or may not own a dog (we don't know).
Bonjour and Bienvenue to Le Gallic Bathroom!
Having endured a long-distance bathroomship for many months, Sam and Chris find themselves once again in knee-groping distance of each other on the top of a mountain in the French Alps.
Joined by their friend Ahmed (who has never listened to the show), they bathe in a baked brie of sonic delights, taking in topics such as showers, skiing, unsolicited phonecalls, disturbed sleep, bathroom robots and finding love in a universe sorely consisting of a near-infinite library.
Producer Paul pops up to discuss his domestic arrangements with Chris and also coins the term 'Proper Revenant'.
With another dip into 'The Virtual Bathroom', Sam and Chris valiantly attempt once again to make an episode that is mainstream and popular.
They indulge in many top timesuckers and mortality distractions such as: 'Music', 'The Internet', 'Video Games', 'Religion' and 'Long-running US TV Series'.
Sam writes a love song, Chris reviews a computer game. Sam creates the ultimate internet list and Chris delves into some radio drama. Sam leads a prayer from upon a mountain top, they both make promises they can't fulfil, and Housekeeping goes in a shocking new direction.
