This was a bit meandering and toothless; it didn't quite give me the catharsis I was hoping for. But it was nice to hear JC in chatty mode; never really witnessed that before. Decent fly-on-the-wall opportunity.

It seems that neither JC nor Alexei believes there ever was a brick through Angela Eagle's office window. Am I right in saying that? Alexei was pretty clear but he has license to sound a bit cranky and paranoid if he wants to. What lent credence to it was when Jeremy said "alleged."

I liked the thing about "let's campaign for something instead of against something".

I liked/was amused by how earnest Lynn sounds (and whoever that voice from the Gorbals was - if she was introduced, I missed it).

Yes, very much enjoyed this today. Noticed Alexei try a couple of time to sort of get Jezza to say out loud that he thinks Starmer's a cunt but he didn't get drawn in. Probably a wise decision.

I really like the music in this podcast too.

Genuine spoiler about the latest episode, so, y'know.

Hats off to whichever one of you lot told Alexei and Talal about this thread! What a lovely plug for the site. Alexei sounded genuinely pleased that this thread exists, while adding that he'll never read it.

Also, it was fascinating to hear that Morris tried to prank Alexei with the Carla the Elephant stunt in Brass Eye. Alexei told him to fuck off, as of course he didn't buy into the idea of an elephant jamming its trunk in its anus. Morris probably knew he wouldn't be fooled, but gave it a go anyway.

Lovely stuff. Chuffed that they read out my message too - it was 6 Months In A Leaky Boat that got banned by the beeb, not Defunkt btw.

Excited by the prospect of some tasty Dudley Sutton anectodery in the next ep, I must say.

Ah, so that was you! Nice one.

Talal, if you're reading this, don't forget to ask Alexei about Dudley Sutton!

Hi Alexei, if you are reading this I just want to know where do you get your ideas from?

It was insulting of him to even ask never mind if thought he would fall for it or not, he's gone down in my estimation a bit for that.

It would be great if Stewart Lee could be a regular guest. They clearly adore each other.
