Rum Doings Episode 230: That Is Racist

by on Dec.02, 2016, under Rum Doings

In our 230th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, actually, ALL Fridays matter.

We recorded this last week, but then John’s life went crazy and he finally got around to posting it today. But thankfully we chatted aimiably about non-topical things for a change! So here is a lovely episode that should distract you from the 2016s of 2016.

Rum Doings Episode 229: Emergency Election-o-Horror Episode

by on Nov.09, 2016, under Rum Doings

In our 229th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, are plastic pegs an abomination or the saviours of the washing line?

This is a slightly shorter emergency episode, responding to the US election result as soon as we were both alive again this morning. It’s glum, obviously, but you do get to hear Nick say words that you’ll have never heard before (his family and friends included).

We talk about what isn’t going to happen, how there won’t be a wall, what limits Trump will operate under. And then we talk terrifying worst-case scenarios. But the good news is, it all ends with lovely cute Toby chatting his madness at us.

by on Sep.20, 2016, under Rum Doings

In our 225th ever Rum Doings, our topic is now the Paralympics are over, can we stop going on about the disableds?

After Nick’s ugly hatred of the disabled is revealed, we move on to John’s tale of a horrible accident that nearly took out Toby, and broke one elderly cyclist. Which then leads on to a refreshingly politics-free episode, except that we just bang on about our children throughout.

by on Aug.12, 2016, under Rum Doings
