Rum Doings Episode 237: Richard Stallman Is Bogus

by on Apr.20, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 238th ever Rum Doings, is Japan still possible?

Perhaps rather obviously we discuss the forthcoming surprise General Election, and the abundance of delightful choice we have in casting our vote. But of course we also talk Bill O’Reilly, Anglican churches, and Judith’s forthcoming miserable holiday. And the joys of going through IVF, and grim porn.

Rum Doings Episode 237: Uncle Nick Is A Silly Poo Poo Face

by on Mar.31, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 237th ever Rum Doings, isn’t it about time doctors stopped prescribing fake news?

After establishing just how wrong Nick is, we consider how sincere is Theresa May, and then move on to John’s Amazing List Of Brilliant Ideas. In the middle of a fascinating discussion about magazines, we are invaded by a two year old. Somehow we then get on to vicars in assemblies, and then Nick gets a bit confused about what metaphors.

by on Mar.10, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 236th ever Rum Doings, has the Bieber bubble burst?

Rum Doings Episode 235: My Willy Plopped Out My Bumhole

by on Feb.17, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 235th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, is PewDiePie the next Hitler?

Oooh, lovely, it’s a proper old-fashioned Rum Doings episode, with topics jumping back and forth all over the house. We cover two year past deaths of radio presenters no one’s heard of, childhood fear, quantum entanglement and confused bishops.

Rum Doings Episode 234: It’s Time To Stop It Now

by on Feb.03, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 234th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, when will the world’s governments finally begin an investigation into the cause of all these celebrity deaths?

It’s a lot of Trump. That was fairly inevitable. John continues to argue for hysteria and panic, Nick continues to argue for calm uninterest. Via this exquisite example of Hegelian dialectic, a synthesis is eventually reached. (Actually, this episode presents a much more realistic example of real-life communication within the twenty-year friendship between the two hosts – this is how we normally get anywhere.)

Then there’s a smattering of the idiotic lawsuit between Bethesda and Oculus.

Rum Doings Episode 233: Good Fingering

by on Jan.26, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 233th ever Rum Doings, our topic is,

After Nick finally gets done whining and whining about how pathetic he is, we get on to a traditionally rambling, frequently sidetracked discussion of the Trump presidency so far. What might happen to NPR? We analyse Data’s poem to his cat. We read some of Trump’s tweets. And we ponder the purpose of the Women’s March.

Rum Doings Episode 232: The Symbol Of Disposable Mortality

by on Jan.09, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 232th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, have you ever eaten a ghost?

Discussions of our Christmas break, Lappish holidays, and festive feasts breaks way into an accidental conversion to Catholicism. We laugh at the colossally stupid Canary, forecast 2017, and then talk about the Mandela Effect, and specifically this article about it. And then mailing lists, and a surprise celebration of George Michael.

Rum Doings Episode 231: 100% Desiccated Breakfast

by on Dec.09, 2016, under Rum Doings

In our 231th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, is the cynical introduction of affordable 4K HDR televisions the last straw?

In another pleasingly mixed episode we talk all over the place, from remembering Fight Club to from where the next child abuse scandal shall emerge, adoption and fostering to the luck and timing of creative success. We try to fathom YouTube like old, old men, and then laugh at how silly Googles are.

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.
