In today's episode, Matt mentioned his breakup in Australia, and Russell didn't mock him for it. Quite disappointed tbh

Aye, I was waiting for that. You could tell in the self-deprecating way Matt said it that he was expecting something.

ever since I discovered this thanks to CAB I have been listening to it from the start and also in real-time, I'm up to Episode 5 and 11, I loved the bit about not recognising the Dail Lama if he was in a dress without the glasses, I was laughing on the Thameslink train (not a real train) and the woman next to me (youngish but with a walking stick) gave me a look and I was embarassed. 
These are so wonderful and now precious to me, they're my new favourite thing ever, Matt is sucha driving force in these podcasts moreso than before and deserves as much if not a little bit less credit than Brand.

I had to pause and take a moment to compose myself after Matt's impression of Russ as a robot pretending to enjoy basketball.

That's a call back to the old radio shows - I remember it was hilarious then. The nostalgia for those shows is something they could overdo - and I think they're being careful not to - but I appreciate it.

that made me laugh also.  maybe moreso because someone i used to work with used to come up to me at least once a week and say 'what about them reds?' referring to arsenal like a complete robot that had nothing to say but felt he should say something.  used to steal all of his opinions on football from tabloid newspapers.

that belly bounce jingle is insanely catchy. russ posted a link on twitter to it on soundcloud.  I've been annoying my girlfriend with it all day.  in fact that might be why she went home...

don't think they'll top episode 7, any newcomers make sure you listen to ep7. It's the one with the double-slit experiment, dalai lama, GQ awards, just the best thing ever.

The segment on Russell not getting tickets for P-Diddy, especially the sweets bit in episode 12 had me in fits of laughter.

I was looking for video's from the podcast and found this blokes channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6-ImyKSTEY

He has a couple of these video outing celebrities, and quite a lot showing his collection of alien fossils.

Catching up with these shows. Love it. Obviously skipping the shite Cool Hip Street Poetry at the end.

Just wanted to say that I really appreciated Russell quoting a fairly obscure line from Wayne's World 2 in the latest episode. That film does not get acknowledged enough in this hectic modern world in which we live in.

I missed that...what was the line?

Today's episode was the best so far, I think. Really good fun.

I missed that...what was the line?

"My girlfriend's in there!"
"Hey, a lot of people's girlfriends are in there"
"Denied!"

Russell quotes it (partially) around the 20 minute mark in reference to the difficulty of getting admission to the Indian hugging saint. Please PM me for any further Wayne's World 2 related queries.

Speaking of referencing things, I just listened to the intro to episode 14 and Russell and Matt singing the Red Dwarf theme (complete with the dun-dun-duns) gets a thumbs up from me.

Matt's Philip Larkin observation and voice, and subsequent gloomy scenarios, were just brilliant. Did seem like it could've been a natural stepping stone towards a tale of Trevor killing an animal, alas.

I save these for my bus journeys to/from work, they really brighten the commute.

I really enjoyed that. In fact, "As Bad as a Mile" by Larkin is not very far away from some of the contrived leaps from mundanity into existential dread that they make up in the podcast (failing to get an apple core into the bin on first throw being emblematic of preordained failure generally).  It's concise and a pretty fine poem though.

Ugh loved them taking about Michel Thomas, he completely echoed my thoughts on his slurpy audiobooks (and his annoying student).

A quite astonishing admission at the end of today's by Russell. Surprised Matt didn't jump on it a bit more. G's reaction was gold.

Is there a set date for when they do these in Russell's basement or the XFM studio? Whilst they're all good the basement ones tend to veer slightly towards Trews territory and focus a lot more on Russell's activism and 'spirituality' whereas the studio based ones seem more madcap and freewheeling which is where I end up laughing the most.

just finished ep15, actually in tears at the revelation/ story at the end, specifically Matt's spin on it.

Haha, fucking hell. I came in here before listening to the end, and your two posts had me expecting a really honest and emotional revelation. I was sat there waiting for the baby discussion[1] to move into something quite frank - that he was having a child, or that a partner of his had had a miscarriage in the past. I was not expecting that. It's great how much fun even they were having with Matt's reaction.
 1. And his and Matt's roleplay of Russ being like Mr. Banks off Mary Poppins or something was fucking hysterical.

Another excellent episode. Matt's comments after the dog thing had me rolling.

I wish they'd push it to an hour per episode....you know, 60 is just a rounder number.

Is there an easier way to download these to listen on my phone? I signed up (which I don't think we had to do before..) and I've tried the .mp3 trick mentioned earlier, but it doesn't appear to be working for me any more.

I need episode 9 onwards because I'm going for a walk later.

On a slightly unrelated note I've been watching the Matt Morgan created Cardinal Burns lately and it's pretty great! Some really funny stuff in there.

edit - ignore the above it's working now! I fucked it up by trying to download about 8 at once.

ive been logging into the audioboom website going to the main page of the podcast i want then if your using chrome right click anywhere on the page then choose view page source. from that i do a ctrl and f button and then search for MP3 and the results should be the link which you can right click and save it to your laptop or phone.

I tried downloading it through the site to my phone on their app but it needs to be online all the time to work is much easier just having the mp3 file

sorry if that sounds like an old persons description on how to do it

15 episodes in though and am getting into the shorter time of them and quality wise its really consistent every week is pretty much my audio highlights of the week

I did a Matt Morgan on the phone yesterday - Ianticipated the other person saying "How are you?", and started to say "I'm alright thanks" before they did. I'm grateful to Matt for making me feel better about this.
