Rum Doings Episode 139: At Sea! Part Two – Faroe Island Evangelism

by on Jul.16, 2013, under Rum Doings

In the 139th episode of Rum Doings, once again sat on the balcony of John and Laura’s cabin, we discuss drowning in Jacuzzis, and Nick’s ripped torso. And then we bring you news of the Faroe Islands. In fact, we happen to have an extremely useful tourism booklet about the place. Let us share it with you. You’ll need this picture too:

Things then turn to a different form of salvation, as we look forward to our Champagne High Tea. Then everything’s ruined when Laura turns up.

Rum Doings Episode 138: Rum Doings At Sea! Part One

by on Jul.10, 2013, under Rum Doings

With commissioning editors worrying about future prospects for the Rum Doings franchise, and a necessity to maintain ratings, it was decided by producers that the mighty series should take to the high seas! So it is that the sitcom of our lives went on a cruise, in a wacky, hilarious collection of… no, that’s as much as I can muster. We went on a holiday together, and recorded a bunch of episodes throughout. This is the first of five slightly shorter editions.

In the 138th episode of Rum Doings, sat on the balcony of John and Laura’s cabin, Nick and John speak into the microphone of an Apple Macintosh laptop with the washing sound of the ocean in the background. So naturally our location dominates discussion for a good while. And promptly turn into pirates.

We ponder the potential of a post-apocalyptic world, complain about a crappy game of poker, and even in the middle of the sea Nick insists on bringing up videogames. Things then turn to John’s hatred of all humanity, and the mysteries of the horizon.

Rum Doings Episode 137: Inflate The President

by on Jun.12, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high. It’s episode 137 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss man moon cold blah blah. We do discuss privacy, and our easily misinterpreted innocent statements. For some reason we talk about aeroplane classes, and their relation to capitalism. John does his extraordinary impression of Frank Muller, and then we consider the genius of Sir Jonathan Ive.

Can you say you’ve read something if you’ve listened to it? And will the blind destroy us all? And is youthwork worthwhile?

We’d really love it if you left a review on iTunes. Yes, iTunes is hideous, but reviews on there are what get podcasts more attention. After 137 free episodes, we’d love you to return the favour by writing a quick review.

Rum Doings Episode 136: Visceral Splodges

by on Jun.03, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high. It’s episode 136 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss why there are so many repeats. We begin by answering a few Facebook (eurgh) questions, and then settle into some lovely discussion of sun cream,
Nick’s desperation for John to get drunk, Judith’s ludicrously complicated songs, and a female Doctor Who.

There’s a painstaking review of the Chocolate Boutique Hotel, and the arrival of the monstrous noise of next door’s loft conversion. Then we encourage bigots to shoot themselves in the head.

Rum Doings Episode 135: Drunken, Fish-And-Chip-Eating, Haggis-Wearing Yobs

by on May.20, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high. It’s episode 135 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss all manner of things that we end up discussing anyway. Including the Conservative’s peculiar backpeddling on gay marriage, the current state of South Africa, and the new-found potency of the cold virus.

There’s some lovely chat about Ferage, and then a review of Eurovision. You can see the 2011 opening ceremony here:

We recall the majesty of Wogan’s Web, the dreariness of Doctor Who, and John’s potential new house.

Rum Doings Episode 134: It’s All So Tawdry And Predictable

by on May.08, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high. It’s episode 134 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss whether it’s time for someone stood up for the rights of the white, hetrosexual male. But we do discuss John’s cold, and then a worrying return to cream teas. We explain why some people can’t be followed on Twitter, and then have a nice discussion about that nice boy, Justin Bieber. And John puts a hit out on Mark Kermode.

We announce plans to close down the Lake District, give away far too many personal details about ourselves, and predict our future leader, Prime Minister Wibblywob, leader of the Spoil Party. And once more we find ourselves upset by the ages of celebrities.

Rum Doings Episode 133: Her Ladygarden Drained Its Pond

by on Apr.30, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high. It’s episode 133 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss whether pensioners should donate their bus passes to charity. Instead we somnambulistically chatter about sleep, poo Braille, and periods. Then Nick begins a sizeable lecture on Bach. No, don’t be scared, it’s good. Here are the links you’ll need, if you have Spotify access. Compare this with this. And this with this. And here’s Chi-Chi Nwanoku.

We express our lifelong dismay that we never married cello players, John regales his anthropological journey into ITV, and we laugh in horror at UKIP. And then we explain in detail how everything is the fault of the immigrants, especially the one that is Nick.

Rum Doings Episode 132: Poos Are Too Brown For The Toilet

by on Apr.19, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high. It’s episode 132 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss whether teachers should stop teaching their liberal views of history. Instead we talk about the latest news in the Boston bombings, as insensitively as you might expect. And even more insensitively, the funeral of Her Royal Highness Queen Margaret Thatcher.

We learn why Nick passionately believes in the healing power of beetroot, science’s early weekend, and pupils copping off with teachers. Then we conclude by deciding to enter a polygamous Swedish marriage and Nick dies.

Rum Doings Episode 131: Mummy, Are You A Princess Too?

by on Apr.08, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high. It’s episode 131 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss what to do with the interest rates. And then despite Nick’s insistence before we started recording that he didn’t want to, he then insists on talking about John’s misogyny/sexism article on RPS for about forty million years. We do also discuss other more important matters, such as The Golden Girls, accidental upgrades, and My Little Pony.

Rum Doings Episode 130: Smug Pedantry

by on Mar.22, 2013, under Rum Doings

Heaven high, listeners. It’s episode 129 of Rum Doings, in which we don’t discuss whatever happened to the dinosaurs. Instead we talk about how John is the most hated man in the world, Nick’s experiences at a comedy gig, and John is finally brought back down to Earth from his delusional celebrity.

We then play “Guess The Newspaper From The Headline”, the game that’s sweeping the nation, Nick explains why the SNP won’t win, and then there are more lessons in healthy eating from our nutritionist guru. Learn how Nick’s daughter turned into a guinea pig, the murderous ways of Ricarda Bigjoan, and some slightly more introspective discussion of the nature of bullying of trans* people. And bad laughers.
