Rum Doings Episode 151: My Bottom Rather Argued That I Shouldn’t

by on Jan.24, 2014, under Rum Doings

In our 151st ever Rum Doings, our topic is: is there a God?

We discuss the news of the day, from two days ago, then Nick says something ill-informed about Tourettes. John the talks about the lying ways of grieving parents. We are the most sensitive of all podcasts. Then moaning about how old we are takes place.

Lucy’s spaying comes under scrutiny, and then we talk about the enormous silliness of King and their attempts to trademark the English language. (We make a mistake here (and by “we” we mean “John”) as King’s trademarks for words like “SWEET!” are for their particular bubble writing logos.) And then we stop.

Rum Doings Episode 150: Move Over Mr Darwin, You’ve Got Competition!

by on Jan.09, 2014, under Rum Doings

In our 150th ever Rum Doings, our topic is our very special guest star Mr Stephen Fry! So we discuss a leaflet John found somewhere for Reverse Theory. An amazing new book that will change science. We go on to argue about Sherlock, the death of a dog in the Archers, and the holiday potentials of Pangaea.

We mull the lack of boobies on British TV, and then we explain how much we approve of the government and all their excellent decisions. And then things get a little bit political ladies and gentlemen, as we grumble.

Rum Doings Episode 149: Comedy Pinnies

by on Dec.17, 2013, under Rum Doings

Episode 149 of Rum Doings is in real life! (And recorded a week ago.) Which appears to encourage us to insult just about everyone. We talk about Dexter’s disappearance, Louise Unmensch, and our ongoing hatred of the blind.

We then have a lecture on Robert Kilroy-Silk, Nick explains how John has ruined his brain, there’s more rubbish about games, and then we move on to Chess 2. Adding to our intolerance of women, the Chinese and the blind, this time we include the Jews.

So, please tell us your best aphorisms. Tweet them, email them, or best of all, leave them as comments below.

Rum Doings Episode 148: Stop Being So Lazy

by on Nov.20, 2013, under Rum Doings

Episode 148 of Rum Doings is an argument. While we certainly don’t discuss why we’re copying America’s Halloween, we instead briefly cover topics of kittens pooing in sinks, the bitterness of coffee, and then we fight. It’s that one where Nick argues that being offensive is good, and John argues that he should be allowed to express when something is offensive, and then we start shouting at each other.

It goes on for about half an hour.

When it finally ends, John gets around to asking Nick to become a Christian.

Rum Doings Episode 147: An Emergency Broadcast

by on Nov.02, 2013, under Rum Doings

Steve Wright's currently publicity shot.

This is an alert from the Rum Doings emergency broadcast system.

Episode 147 of Rum Doings is a crisis late-night recording, after the occurrence of breaking events that could not wait for our irregularly unscheduled programme. While in a pet shop, John heard a brief moment of Steve Wright In The Afternoon on BBC Radio 2. What he heard was of such insignificance that immediate action had to be taken. The Rum Signal was shone onto the sky, and Team Rum assembled in the especially constructed emergency bunker, to ensure this insipid inanity couldn’t go unpunished.

And you can listen to Chris Morris’s Wayne Carr spoof of Steve Wright here.

Then we carried on. Singing into a fan, gargling, dental cheating, David Schneider’s tweets, and the wonderful Eddie Mair and PM.

Please do leave a comment below. I know it’s a pain, since you’ll likely not listen while staring at this page, but it makes us feel wanted.

PS. Other tracks from that Morris flexidisc were the incredible Pixies spoof, and a prank call to Piers Moron.

Steve Wright's actual face.

Rum Doing Episode 146: A Limp And Cancerous Language

by on Oct.31, 2013, under Rum Doings

In the 146th episode of Rum Doings, we don’t discuss why people should take the wind more seriously. But we do talk about Russell Brand, because we were told to. And Garfield, castles and why the Welsh language should be dead. There’s a very brief TV review, leading us into a chat about Joss Whedon. Also, Nick is St. John the Baptist. There’s a star available for the best listeners, so listen out for that!

Rum Doings Episode 145: Shoving Your Poo Up My Bum

by on Oct.09, 2013, under Rum Doings

In the 145th episode of Rum Doings, we don’t discuss whether wagon wheels. We do, however, look through NHS brochures for woo nonsense, the US government shutdown, and John’s GCSE English work. And John’s primary school work, including the famous Here Is Father Christmas Playing In The Garden.

You must remember to throw money toward the Open Well Tempered Clavier project, before Simon Cowell owns the copyright for all music. And if you’re British, you must plan which country to move to when the government repeals the Human Rights Act. Then there’s the tale of John’s seven-year-old nephew’s foray into swears, and finally a poem called Why by twelve-year-old poet, John Walker.

Also, here are those last two pictures mentioned: Bunny and hen.

Rum Doings Episode 144: There’s Nothing Inherently Putrid About My Formulation

by on Sep.27, 2013, under Rum Doings

In the 144th episode of Rum Doings, we don’t discuss whether the vinyl has had its day. But instead we get into some first year poetry analysis, and learn how Lucy the kitten has banished sleep for John.

Naturally we have a quick chat about Turkey, discuss Mohammad’s cat, and then Nick obsesses over the language in some, er, spam. We stake our claim to having discovered Benedict Cumberbatch, and then Nick outlines the new rules for seasons. And probably some other stuff too.

Rum Doings Episode 143: There’s Far Too Much Hemping Going On

by on Sep.11, 2013, under Rum Doings

In the 143rd episode of Rum Doings, we don’t discuss population control. And we’re no longer on a cruise. So life is empty. But John has recently gained a kitten, and that’s quite the matter. We express just how much we don’t know the right answer for Syria, nor indeed about fracking. We explain how you can buy anything you want when you’re buying a house, and also the complete lack of past kissing antics by our wives. Nick appoints Laura in charge of RPS, and John discusses the company’s exploitation of tiny kittens. Nick then makes John talk about the next console generation, we consider the lack of sticky-up winkies on TV, and then it ends.
