Rum Doings Episode 259: It’s SNOOOOWWWING!

by on Feb.01, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 259nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, why don’t we just stop having wars after all?

Naturally we launch straight into SNOW NEWS. Nick is SO EXCITED! Then it’s onto an old favourite: how weather forecasting is a sham and must be stopped.

Nick bans the phrase “toxic masculinity”, in the fashion of a man using his maleness to impose his views on us all, and John suggests there might be human rights issues in more than one specific country. Then it’s TV recommendations time, with I’m Sorry and Big Mouth top of the list.

Then everything devolves into just a bit of a chat, really.

Rum Doings Episode 258: Daniel Special

by on Jan.22, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 258rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, if the NHS is so short on beds, why don’t they just buy some more beds?

We begin with a delve into our spam folders, ponder Philly’s crash, and of course there’s some Brexit natter.

And then we move on to Daniel! Daniel from the comments from previous episodes. Oh Daniel. It’s all about you, Daniel!

Rum Doings Episode 257: It’s The Heathens

by on Jan.04, 2019, under Rum Doings

In our 257nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, bearing in mind the children, should we now destroy all screens?

It’s our first Rum Doings of 2019, so it’s out with the old, and in with the old again. Brexit, Corbyn, how to roast a turkey – of course we discuss it all.

Then there’s the evolution of dropping litter, are councils mythical, and is the reason for all problems in the world the lack of empty supermarket car parks on a Sunday?

Rum Doings Episode 256: Hittle, Hitler, Hitlest

by on Nov.21, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 256rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, is Jacob Rees Mogg evidence that we should never trust the thin?

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But time isn’t a factor in the gel universe of Rum Doings, so things carry on as normal. So we discuss Brexit, Trump and all the obvious big subjects. But we also get into the complexities of miscarriage, and Nick’s new wobbly theory of the universe.

Rum Doings Episode 255: We Often Have Different Body Types

by on Aug.21, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 255nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, is it now time for Elon Musk to be replaced by AI?

We begin with some of our crazed socialist rambling about the corruption of big companies, ponder how easy it is to fall off a cruise ship, and Nick launches a staunch defense of sexism.

Then we really rather get into the topic of antisemitism. No, no, come back. We try to approach the subject from the perspective of why it’s something to care about, rather than something to use as a weapon in an argument. It’s probably quite a good discussion. Here’s the episode of Radio 4’s The Reunion we discuss.

Rum Doings Episode 254: You Can’t Make A Human Without Miscarrying Eggs

by on Jul.20, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 254rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, now Cliff Richard is definitely not a paedophile, is it safe to start posting him our children again?

Nick’s in somewhere called “The United States Of America”, which is apparently some sort of second attempt at England. He’s there to speak at his cult. A cult that believes this is episode 255 when it’s 254.

We talk about John’s getting fired from the Cat Magazine, we ponder Putin, and then get into the terrible people of Bubbling Life.

Rum Doings Episode 253: Playing Your Oonga Boonga Drums

by on Jun.27, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 253rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, given Europe’s carbon dioxide shortage, should we start burning more fossil fuels?

We begin by trying to discuss Love Island, which neither of something has seen, and then Labour Live, which neither of us attended (along with everyone else in the world). Nick went to Menorca, John didn’t, and we discuss the ongoing popularity of text adventures. (Link!)

We attempt to mess with your AI, upset metal fans, and then John reads everyone a racist bedtime story.

Rum Doings Episode 252: Shuffling The Pack

by on Jun.15, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 252rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, now that Einstein’s diaries show that he was xenophobic against Asians, isn’t it about time we no-platformed special and general relativity?

Every now and then we like to break up the flow, and include a good episode. This is one of those.

We begin with discussions of HRH Prince Charles’ need for a cream tea, move on to Trump vs N Korea, and then Nick advocates holocausts, both nuclear and Nazi.

John tells a story of Bodmin Jail’s incredibly balanced perspective on paranormal phenomena, we have a message from our sponsor, and we dive into our podcast subscriptions.

Rum Doings Episode 251: Watch Out For Embarrassed Vixens

by on May.24, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 251rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, the royal wedding.

Despite this, Nick talks about the royal wedding at length, which is why he’s now in prison forever.

More importantly, to celebrate our landmark two hundred and fifty-first episode, we’re in the same room! There’s much blather about weddings in general, then this naturally moves on to Buffy The Vampire Slayer, new kitchens, and embarrassed foxes.

We discover the secret of immortality: kill millions of people, talk holidays, and reconsider the legacy of Toe Knee B Liar.

by on May.11, 2018, under Rum Doings
