Had to turn the latest podcast off halfway through. Sarah Pascoe constantly saying Yes to everything Richard and Adam were saying got slightly irritating.

Yes

I can't stand her. I wish I didn't, but I do. I find her mercilessly insincere.
She's never struck me as insincere, just utterly unfunny.

Amazed that anybody thought Sara was anything other than thoughtful and the most interesting person in the podcast.

I really liked her comment about how you know you've graduated from a teen to an adult when you realise everyone else is neurotic and anxious, too.  Might seem like a truism or a bit pat, but it's a true truism, Pat.

Yeah I thought she carried the conversation in good directions. If anything she was a bit earnest, but she still broke into easy laughter when someone said something funny.

Probably didn't want to come across as a phoney.

Pascoe always comes across as intelligent and thoughtful in interviews. And then I see her stand-up and find it quite pedestrian and shallow. I think she has dumbed herself down a bit to appeal to a more mass market,which is fair enough I suppose but a bit of a shame as I reckon if she used her intellect more she could be a really good stand-up

I love everybody but this is double self indulgent.

It's like (I can't remember who said it on TV) "welcome to the shittest dinner party in the world!"

Always nice to hear AB (I'm doing internet speak now) talking with RA and SP. SP, RA and AB got on so well that it's easy to listen to like a fly on the wall, but If I was AB I would try to mix the guests up a bit maybe FG, YG, PP, FD, etc etc

I got quite sad when he said that there would be no more podcasts until October. Why can't he stockpile some and release them over the summer? I would have preferred a longer gap between each one if it stopped a 3 month gap now

I was only joking around. I think Adam Buxton has had one of the best and most interesting hit rates with guests. As in people I wouldn't usually have been bothered with on another podcast.

He is genuinely brilliant and I would say (not in his mind) a national treasure. Bit much I know, but we all said that about Bob Mortimer 10 years ago. Now the greatest.

I've completely forgotten what I've just written.

What an odd thing to get slightly irritated about.

I enjoyed that very special book club episode, they all made good contributions.

I agree, she came across as a thoughtful, empathetic, intelligent person. I've never seen her stand-up - or indeed stand up - but as a presumably seated human being talking about Catcher in the Rye, she did a fine job.

All that analysis saves me from ever having to read the fucker, too. I've been avoiding it on purpose all my life.

Why? You can read it in an afternoon. Decide if it's overrated shit or not before you have your tea.

It's not the effort, I just don't want to open up the option of being able to relate to people who take the book really seriously. Phony bastards.

No one noticed this is back?

Loved the extended cup-of-tea sesh in the most recent ep. Did wonder what Pullman was going on about everything having consciousness though.

The longer that went on, the more I expected a few daft sound effects to be edited in, like the ones behind the continuity announcer in On the Hour.

I thought it slightly ironic it coming after him moaning about people not believing scientists and just following their beliefs

Hylozoism?

Sympathetic proof of hylozoism: imagine a stone lying on a beach, undisturbed for fifty years; impossible to think that, walking by, we could pick it up and throw it into the sea, and that it could feel nothing...

Hylozoism?

Pullman called it panpsychism I think (maybe?). According to the (crap, uncited) Wikipedia page: "Nevertheless, hylozoism remains logically distinct both from early forms of animism, which personify nature, and from panpsychism, which attributes some form of consciousness or sensation to all matter."

In any case it sounds like an extraordinary claim for someone who otherwise seems quite scientifically minded, as evidenced by his writing. Hard not to wonder if he isn't drawn to the "everything is conscious" because it so closely resembles the dust idea in his novels.

It sort of sounds like spiritualism for people that are too scientific to allow themselves to believe such a thing

I wish Pullman had thrown the 'Have you heard of Soukous?' question to me.  I'd have nailed it with an anecdote about how, when I started to play this song by Franco & OK Jazz at a small Green Fields stage at Glastonbury on a sweltering Sunday afternoon, one blitzed punter splayed-out on the floor perked up enough to stand up and yell 'Heeeey, heeey baby!' after the opening bar, before promptly collapsing to the floor again when he realised his mistake.

Very humble of Buckles to say he’s not a musician when he’s written some awesome jingles and comedy songs, understands basic music production and can arrange and sing harmony parts.
