DB 2009 Review - A (half) YEAR IN PODCASTS

Posted by Posted by Dark Beige On 16:16

The first podcast 'pilot' was recorded in early August, and featured a discussion of Jade, Jackiey Budden and Jack Tweed, who carried a mattress on his back to symbolically represent the press.

Number 2 heavily featured Gazza - his poem tribute to Sir Bobby ("He was a man, even better than Peter Pan", his autobiography and tribute poems in general.

3 featured celeb confessions - Jack Tweed opens up to Carole Malone while Noel Fielding opens up to Dan Wootton. Meanwhile, Ronan just likes whatever is in the top ten, Peter Andre loves those kids and Nelson Mandela makes a poor houseguest.

In September's number 4, we turned to two special fathers for justice - Paul Betts, father of 90s ecstasy overdose victim Leah and Terry Lubbock, father of Stuart, the butcher who died in Barrymore's pool. "If you want me to slow down, don't show me their future".

5 discussed the many many fifth Beatles out there, plus Jack Tweed trying to break America ("Howdy pardner").

6 was a very angry affair, discussing Jack Tweed's arrest for rape, what if Obama was Chinese? and accusing Charlie Brooker of looking like a paedophile.

7 was an American special, discussing the great nation at length with reference to attitudes, history and Tom Cruise's character in Cocktail.

In October, 8 discussed two men who are very hard to tell apart - Michael Parkinson and Michael Aspel, two silver haired Michaels who present TV shows.

9 was part 1 of a two part TV detective special - in the wake of the theft of my yacht, and little Pumule, the African boy, a detective was needed. Discussing names like Quincy, Jessica Fletcher, Ironside and Cadfael.

The second part featured more names including Magnum, Renegade and Columbo, ending with the realisation that I had stolen my own yacht.

In 11, we discussed the death of Stephen Gately, Jack Tweed: Crime Traveler, Mitch Winehouse on Another Stakeout and more in a celeb-packed special.

In November, 12 was the first part of a 2 part Wrestling special where we discussed the stupidity of wrestling, and whether it's racist.

Part 2 got a bit lively as we wondered what wrestling names celebrities would call themselves, and obscure new wrestlers like 'Simon Orangeade' and 'Rory Internet'.

In December, part 14 discussed a bad week for Alex Reid and all things terrorism related - the shoebomber (ten songs he might have sung), Aaron Barshack, John Smeaton and Jack Tweed being radicalised in jail.

Part 15 was a TV special, as shows including Dragons Den, X Factor, Deal or No Deal and Eastenders were disected.

Finally, a fairly poor 16th podcast discussed tattoos and read out made up emails.
