Rum Doings Episode 269: Nasal Douche

by on Dec.06, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 269nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: should we amend the Great British constitution so that Andrew Neil be Queen during general election?

John has a CHRONIC SINUS CONDITION, and that’s obviously the big news of the week. So we talk nasal DOUCHING. He’s also just launched a new website about undiscovered indie games, but pah.

We also talk the awfulness of the election choices, as evidenced by the inevitable success of Mogg, about Judith’s appendectomy, steamed breakfasts, and the disastrous US healthcare system.

Rum Doings Episode 268: Quite Oddly Lax

by on Nov.15, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 268rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: should we be worried about TikTok?

Nick has a new kitten! It’s correct name is Maisy. This sadly doesn’t distract us from talking about the hopeless pit that is the UK general election. And then, with a great deal of sense and decorum, we discuss the ethnic demographics of the UK for the longest time.

Then, stepping into a subject about we’re even less expert, we talk evolution.

Rum Doings Episode 267: Munchy Vagina

by on Oct.24, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 267nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: With all the worrying news, shouldn’t there now be a vaping tsar?

There’s a little bit of politics. We begin with all the latest HILARIOUS ANTICS of Brexit, and then quite figuratively leap across the Atlantic at the depressing farce of the Democratic race. With special focus on the brain collapse of Joe Biden.

We learn the advice of children, and then get to the real issue of the day: Nick’s fancy new toilet.

Rum Doings Episode 266: Operating Within Chronological Time

by on Sep.25, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 266nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: Why don’t we kick the CAN’T down the road?!

Prepare yourself: it’s going to be Brexitty. Obviously we discuss at some length the excitement of the last day or so, plus our predictions for what’s going to happen next. And we try to understand the motivations for people who voted Leave, but aren’t racists or stupid.

We ponder how Rees-Mogg has been so rhetorically thick, and even more concerningly, how Farage is becoming so rhetorically smart. Then Nick is MASSIVELY racist against the Japanese, while John saves his racism for the Jews. Finally we celebrate how terrible BBC News has become, and, moving forward, condemn anyone who ever says that.

Rum Doings Episode 265: Punch Cars Out The Sky

by on Sep.11, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 265rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: Why don’t we just… prorogue traffic wardens?!?!!

So yes, we obviously discuss the Brexitty madness, and then the legacy of John Bercow. This then incomprehensibly links on to the irritations of “smart” speakers, Toby’s first day at school, and that dreadful modern music you kids listen to.

We argue about giving trophies to children, argue even more about whether John likes tennis, and argue a bit in the middle about whether to have fights.

Rum Doings Episode 264: #nolivesmatter

by on Sep.03, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 264nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: If we can put a man on the moon, why can’t we put a man on the moon?

This week we talk instead about the absolute clustermuck that is this week in politics, and how no rules apply anywhere. We ask why phones don’t dut-duhdah-dut any more, the power of adverts, and we argue for the extinction of the human race.

Plus there’s the most important topic of all: what’s going on with toilet buttons?

Rum Doings Episode 263: 10rd Anniversary Special!

by on Aug.09, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 263nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: Should Nick be deported to Robin Island for stealing Starglider?

It’s our tenth anniversary! The very first episode came out on the 10nd August 2009, and today is near as dammit. If you want to be a purist, don’t listen to this until tomorrow.

We obviously discuss the changes that have occurred over the last ten years, both to us and the world, which naturally leads us to our usual complaining about Jeremy Corbyn, Donald Trump, and Brexit. For some reason Nick insists on John’s blithering about changes in games, we do our best to upset most new parents, and Judith outdoes John on appearing on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

Rum Doings Episode 262: We Should Probably Stop

by on Aug.07, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 262st ever Rum Doings, our topic is either: “With the latest set of atrocities, can we finally ban these video nasties?” or indeed: “With all these floods, shouldn’t we just get rid of dams and use bottles instead?”

Instead we discuss weeing, because look, we’re in our 40s now. And indeed erections. That out the way, I’m afraid we turn to slightly more distasteful topics, and analyse the calculated awfulness of our new PM. Nick then goes on to be wrong about The Orville, while John, by contrast is right. And then everything breaks and we give up.

Rum Doings Episode 261: The Common Decency To Look Bloody Evil

by on Jul.11, 2019, under The Rest

In our 261rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, “Those pedalling the slur that Labour is ‘institutionally racist’ should remember When the fascists march into your town, it will be Labour supporters who turn up to drive them out.”

In this week’s episode of our weekly podcast we talk about John’s long ago trip to Canada, about Nick’s hatred of all that is good and pure, and go into some detail about the peculiar near-death experiences of John’s cat, Lucy. Oh, and are all children sociopaths? Plus other stuff, as you might imagine.

Rum Doings Episode 260: Joris Bonson

by on Apr.24, 2019, under The Rest

In our 260rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, shouldn’t we take time to smell the roses?

This week’s episode of our weekly podcast begins with chat about John’s sudden unemployment, then quickly moves on to the complete erasure of basic civil liberties.

There’s a brief moment of Game Of Thrones (no spoilers), then we talk about San Francisco’s highs and lows. We ponder the syndromes of Valve and Google, and then meander wildly through topics at quite a pace.
