Rum Doings Episode 197: Space Based Cold War

by on Jul.29, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 197th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, isn’t it about time those captors released poor little Maddie?

Sorry. However, in a pleasingly upbeat episode, we discuss an awful lot of space. Going to space, the amount to spend on space, and space fiction. Especially The Martian and Defying Gravity. Of course, things move on to Lord Sewel, and the peculiarity of the story.

John laments how awful is his cat, and then we realise that John’s marriage is in the hands of a fragile china mug.

Rum Doings Episode 196: A Skanky Man

by on Jul.24, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 196th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, isn’t it about time ISIS learned some good fashioned British values?

We talk about lying to your children, the destruction of the BBC, and indeed CBeebies programming. There are thoughts on deficits, John seeks mortgage advice, we ponder Steve Martin, and wonder at the cast of the Cosby Show. And Nick still hasn’t written the Toby song.

Rum Doings Episode 195: Rubbed Away At My Arse Crack

by on Jul.09, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 195th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, has tennis outlived its usefulness?

We discuss our robot overlord future, the horrible Stephen Green, and then dissect Center Parcs. Nick dismisses the Greek, we remember when Richard Herring didn’t shout “AND ER!” after every sentence, and then we start making some very special plans for our 200th episode.

Rum Doings Episode 194: National Cream Tea Day

by on Jun.26, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 194th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, if you can keep your head while all around you are losing theirs, are you a member of ISIS?

On National Cream Tea Day we bring you news of Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm – a truly barking mad creationist zoo that actually exists. We then discuss the very nature of existence, and then how people pray wrong. We recall the race for the human genome, lament the faults of the wax crayon, and Nick does his amazing impression of John.

Rum Doings Episode 193: Go Back Onto Your Lipid Raft

by on Jun.16, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 193th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, is the Queen turning up for the Magna Carter ceremony a bit as if Jimmy Savile’s ghost turned up for the opening of a new ward at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

We begin discussing the Tim Hunt fiasco, which eventually leads to Nick’s decision to run his own island. We dismiss all allergies, celebrate Giles Brandreth, and attempt to discover the identity of a briefcase carrier.

John regales us with tales of the Saltford fete, we wonder at our ever-aging attractions, and ban nose piercings.

Rum Doings Episode 192: Federal Jewish Of Investigation

by on Jun.04, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 192th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, in light of the Britain’s Got Talent fiasco, should all dogs be put down?

Topics this week include Seppastian Blatter’s evil ways, Nick’s failed attempts to guess newspapers from headlines, and a couple of thoughts on Charles Kennedy. We worry about rollycoasters, explain why Toby is so very, very interesting, and Nick realises that being a Conservative makes you a baddie.

Who is the real idiot when it comes to pooing in your pants? Nick explains John’s outfit of a tracksuit and semen-stained top. And we finish with a superb letter from our listener.

Rum Doings Episode 191: Squashed Twins

by on May.21, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 191th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, never mind space – what about the kiddies in the hospitals?

We talk about the universal changing of numerical suffixes, the matriarchy in which Nick finds himself, and Radio 4 plays. (Here’s that good astronaut play.) Nick learns about the greatest thing on television, Tipping Point, we sort-of argue about “trigger warnings”, then rail against the idiocy of “clickbait”.

Rum Doings Episode 190

by on May.15, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 190th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, should Miles Cyrus be forced to apologise for her armpit hair?

In a transatlantic episode we talk about the collapse of UKIP, the awfulness of MPspeak, and the flop of 3D. There’s also, out of nowhere, a detailed look at the role of Linux in gaming and the democratisation of development via engine availability. It was Nick’s fault.

Rum Doings Episode 189: I’ve Lost My General Erection

by on May.08, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 189th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, could it be time to label the fad of wearing a suit without a tie depraved?

And so, with heavy hearts, we dissect the madness of the last night, and make our predictions for the next five years. And try to find hope within.

If you don’t leave a review on iTunes the Tories will never lose again. Thank you to everyone who has so far – you’re keeping the human race alive.

Rum Doings Episode 188: The National Erection

by on May.05, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 188th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, how dare Prince William have named his baby anything other than Her Royal Diananess Diana The Princess Of Dianania?

Instead this is our bumper-length pre-election special! We break down the current polls, analyse the position of each of the parties, assess their policies and laugh at their pledges, before giving our predictions as to the outcome, and instructing you how to vote.

We’ll be back with another episode on Friday to look at the results, and either weep or cheer accordingly.
