“What time is it?” I asked.
“Why, it’s time to cast some beef!” Murray replied with authority.
So ladies, and men who look like ladies, here it is, the third instalment of the Islay Beefcast. Technically this is just the second Beefcast, but this is definitely episode 03, so wrap your heads around that.
I know I mentioned it last time, but no logo just yet. We do have theme music though! Well, we don’t really, but we thought it might be fun if we improvise some music at the start of every episode instead, something unique and collaborative. So this week it’s myself on classical guitar, and Murray on that Banjo Dulcimer thing I got off eBay years ago. Just a bit of fun – bear in mind neither of us are competent musicians.
Anyway, here’s the podcast. Shorter than last time, but still too long and full of dumb crap. Just the way we like it!
This week we chit-chat about life, and love, and peeping Tom, Christmas hats, badminton, the illusion of memory, Supersonic Festival… ALL KINDS OF CRAP REALLY. And then Murray tries to end it prematurely at which point I realise we haven’t covered all the stuff we normally try to cover. Then we get onto topics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, filmic depictions of male pregnancy and rape, bad reality TV, British social norms. And then finish on a cover of Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull.
Enjoy, or we will cry.
