My favourite bit is the here we go before the goofy ramblechat jingle. Usually he just says here we go, but once in a while he says here we go really energetically and it makes me whoop.

I enjoy his interviews but I'd happily throw him some money on Patreon or whatever for a version without the 10 minutes of wandering around a field at the start and the FUCKING AWFUL SONGS that pepper it. That "Ramblechat" song in particular is just so shit it makes me cringe.

No! No! Nonononono! etc

You are the most wrong anyone has ever been about anything ever. Sorry about that. Or possibly congratulations.

He's on a recent Pappy's podcast, by the way, for fans of him getting angry about minor infractions.

Ah, thanks for the heads up. I loved listening to Pappys but when the covid thing kicked off something about them doing it remotely depressed me, and like a lot of people I was losing my marbles a bit anyway, so I stopped listening to them. I might start again now, the podcast with Adam was great.

The Pappy's lockdown pods have been great.
Tom has clearly gone insane, but the jingles alone have made me laugh every day - especially the ones that accompany the tiniest of features.

Not at all, I'm afraid. I loved A&J on telly, liked them on 6 Music, enjoyed Song Wars, and I think his interviews are lovely. But the other stuff...I can't.

I sort of find Adam's modern dynamic with Joe when they do a podcast together interesting. Adam comes across like he's interviewing an old friend who's too busy to hang around with him any more cause he's got a new girlfriend he spends all his time with now.

Jinglewise I'd like to issue some low-key props to the "Where's my charger gone? Have you seen it?" one. Only pops up occasionally and I'm always happy when it does

And that girlfriend....is Hollywood baby.

I utilise the 30sec skip with a lot of podcasts I listen to - not least when ads come on.

Yes, I love cornballs but his rather flawed film career does seem to have come about just at the same time as he started speaking to Buckles in a less condescending and resentful way.

I like the jingles, although some of them I've heard too many times now and I tend to skip past those - but I can't be bothered with the dog-walking bit at the start. I'd sooner just get straight into the chat without listening to a long précis of it beforehand.

Yeah it's very nice to hear them back on good terms. Some of the 6music podcasts when it was clear Joe did not want to be there (presumably when he was getting working on the Tin Tin script and getting Attack the Block off the ground) were quite painful to listen to, especially when Adam would try to keep the energy and ideas up and Joe just wouldn't engage. I know they played it up as Torpedo Commander Cornballs annihilating the conversations, but from what Adam has subsequently said there was genuine frustration there.

I like the birds at this time of year. And I like to shout 'that's a blackcap you idiot' at him, in his voice, when he makes reference to them being noisy again. How can he walk his dog there every day and not have learned THE BIRDS

Absolutely agreed - I found it quite upsetting sometimes to hear Joe cockblock a really funny bit with a withering, sarcastic comment. Listening back, I really want Adam to explode and give him some shit for it.

I was gutted that they stopped doing the 6Music show as it was part of my life for so long and I adored it (as well as getting a couple of emails read out!!!). But looking back, they stopped a little late, and it might have been better to let Joe go and do his scribblings for the bigwigs in Lala Land.

Cornish has just started a production company with Edgar Wright and Nira Park that seem to have a lot of things on the go so I don't think he is quite finished with Hollywood yet. I liked Attack the Block and The King Who Would Be King was a good old fashioned kids film of the sort that doesn't get made any more

The Kid Who Would Be King felt more to me like a feature version of one of those old kids fantasy TV series they used to make.

I've built up a backlog of Buxcasts and have only just listened to the Philip Pullman epsisode.

When they're talking about his woodwork, Adam commends him on his lovely "something" chest and despite rewinding a few times I can't make out what sort of chest it is.

Can you help? Its around the 32 minute point. Cheers.

Plan chest.

I still listen to a lot of podcasts on my iPod, so it's more fiddly, but I've become a dab hand at skipping Adam's songs / Richard Herring's intros etc.

It's an impression of the guy who does the 'the daily' podcast, michael Barbaro. Uncanny. Particularly the weird noises he makes in interviews.

I always heard it as 'thats all I need to know today', but deliberately pronounced as 'nut today', cos of all the sex type groans he makes and that. But then, I am a disgusting perv. I'm actually naked right now. And typing this out with my testicles.

The best jingle is the one that sounds like a Streets song about bumping someone's car in a supermarket car park

"No, fuck youuuuuu - and your mother toooooo" *xylophone twinkles*

Said it before but my favourite is the one with the samples of the mental Tory going on about how electronic music is bad. There's something so cheering about it. Booooom goes the brainbox. I don't know if it was deliberate but the way Adam puts a bit 808ish kick on the "booooooom" makes it sound like the "brainbox" is a drum machine and I now always refer to drum machines as brainboxes.

Attack the Block was quite promising.  He could churn out a mid-budget British comedy/thriller (or whatever he wants) like that every year and I'd be perfectly happy.  Better than cosying up with Spielberg and other has-beens and swooning over their Hollywood mansions while getting your name attached to crap superhero films that don't end up getting made.

If I remember correctly, this is from a radio documentary about music and how it effects our brains? I think it may have been discussed, and clips played, on an old 6 music show.

Yeah, we've covered it already in this thread but it's sampled from this essay from Tory fossil Roger Scruton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYua80VEcBk

Adam's repurposing of it is the perfect response, I love it. If it was discussed on the 6music show I've forgotten, I'd love to hear that if anyone has it.
