Adam dropping the ball not remembering the big "John Grant has HIV" thing in this weeks podcast.

It did amuse me after Grant had gone on at length about his unhappy childhood and various longstanding demons Adam shortly afterward came back with the question "What's one really nutty anecdote from your life?"

I really enjoyed the Charlotte Church chat. I want her to be my friend. I am surprised he didn't ask if her interest in child emancipation is due to her own public childhood but maybe that was too obvious

The Charlotte Church podcast felt like eavesdropping on a lovely, warm chat between friends – they had a definite rapport. Interesting that Charlotte had specifically asked Adam if she could appear on the show, rather than the other way around.

Don’t know why but Adam’s matter-of-fact recounting of this BBC News story during the podcast outro had me crying with laughter: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48477081

I could have listened to Charlotte Church tell stories of how mental her childhood was for ever.

Agreed about Charlotte Church. Enjoyed the Barbara Streisand / Barry Manilow anecdote especially.

Yes, I rarely lol when listening to podcasts but that really had me going.

I once correctly guessed* the 4 digit code to a padlock, much to my mate's amazement.
"What were the chances of that? About a million to one!?"
I didn't have the heart...

I want to marry her a bit.

I thought the John Grand podcast was interesting. But Charlotte has been my favourite recent one by far.

Charlotte Church is brilliant. I'd vote for her.

Charlotte Church was a surprise guest on the Infinite Monkey Cage live at Bluedot festival a few years ago and I felt silly for never realising how great she is. She was talking about aliens and space and things. She's been one of my dream guests on this for ages so I'm excited to have a listen

Mate. She's hawking crisps. Grow up.

In my defense I was meant to post this much worse advert for virgin holidays

And obviously a young girl should not be allowed to change her political opinion, or be convinced/forced to do something she might not want to do by people with vested interests. Or want to pay the bills

The ramblechat with Charlotte Church was a delight. Buckles sounded aghast when she mentioned not being particularly arsed when she met David Bowie. I bet his face was a picture of incredulity (That's Buxton not Bowie).

I wondered from Bob's reaction to Paul letting slip that he'd considered jacking 'Athletico Mince' in at one point whether he'd actually ever told that to Andy.

Yeah, that was a bit awkward. Bob sounded quite flustered at first, but I think he just about managed to recover the situation.

Andy would have just muted Bob on Twitter and called him a cunt.

What I took away from that was the (probably wrong) impression that Paul doesn't think much of Andy. It was the follow-up when he asked if Andy wrote any of it that did it.

Had to stop listening at The pig-moth story. The people on the tram were looking at me oddly.

That was a really good one. Bob Mortimer is always great, but it sounded like Paul Whitehouse was in a really good mood, which added a lot to the dynamic.

Three of my favourite comedy entertainers having a chat. Pure pleasure. Bob's non-sequitur carpet talk pretty much sums up why he is a comedy genius

A good fun listen. Perhaps a sign of how good it was that I felt I wanted a lot more. Did appear to cut off in mid-flow with no real wind-down. So a back-handed compliment I guess.

Caught up with three of these yesterday.

Whitehouse and Mortimer - Absolutely wonderful, could've listened to them forever. I still haven't seen their fishing Trip yet. I probably ought to.

Charlotte Gainsbourg - AMSR heaven. I'd never heard her "real" speaking voice before so my respect for her English accent in LvT's films has massively increased.

James Acast(er) - He makes a good interviewee. Nothing new or Earth shattering but I made a note of his "recommended albums from 2016".

I was at home and screamed myself into a coughing fit at it. "A moth! But the size of a pig! A Pig Moth! It sucked 5 pints of my blood!"
