043 - ANNA CALE - MRS. MANGEL'S LIVING ROOM WAS THE BANE OF MY LIFE

Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.

Joining Tim this time is writer Anna Cale, who’s trying to collect a full set of everyone who remembers the Neighbours sticker album, Australian comedy film Wendy Cracked A Walnut, early ‘dungeon crawl’ computer game Rogue, vegetarian DIY wonderfood Sosmix, schools television programme Secrets Of The Sea and the Shackleton’s High Seat Chairs advert. Along the way we’ll be finding out how not to cosplay as Jason Donovan, why rock star makeup is not appropriate for your local youth club, and the only possible way of finishing Bugaboo The Flea.

You can find Anna’s website here, and follow her on Twitter at @real_meaning.

You can hear more about the exploits of the singing Neighbours stars in the Looks Unfamiliar Christmas Extra here, and more about dubious video shop rental choices in the edition with Emma Burnell here.

If you’ve enjoyed this, you’ll also enjoy Tim’s book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
