038 - GILLIAN KIRBY - WHAT'S NOT WORK SAFE ABOUT SICK WORMS?

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 juggler Gillian Kirby, who doesn’t want your money honey but does want your memories of an unidentified episode of Dramarama about two youngsters trying to walk around the outside of England via the coast, Teletext After Hours, misunderstanding references in Transvision Vamp lyrics, Lava Lamp-esque soft drink Orbitz, Seattle Coffee Company, early social media site bolt.com and the S.T.A.R.S. novels by Hunter Davies. Along the way we’ll be finding out how much vomiting was involved in the average episode of Children’s Ward, shouting sexist heckles at the male members of The Mock Turtles, saying a big hello to Fourth Bloke from Transvision Vamp, and exploring the little-known friendship between Kate Middleton and Honey Monster (Puffs). Whether this has any bearing on Gillian’s choice of new National Anthem we’re not saying…
