In which Mark sings his tiny boots off, Paul meanders back into the world of Pet Inventions and Mark hits a new low with Riddel Oh El.
In which Mark has a camp echo, probably telling him not to be so grumpy in the post office. Paul has seen the future and it involves gourmet dry food. This week’s inventions come from actual metaphors in English exams and Mark’s love for Riddel Oh El is firmly stated.
In which we bong the hell out of this crazy world. Mark has dietary inventions, and Paul’s are Ear, Nose & Throat related. A guest pops in to talk about Puddle Prevention and the music is downright kicking.
Our Swell Oh El’s this week are Robert Webb’s How Not To Be A Boy and the Mitchell & Webb series Back. Thanks, as ever to Hebden Radio. And you can get in touch through twitter @PaulCoates_ & @Mark Charnock

Ho Ho Ho and a Merry Christmas. Hebden Radio asked us to do a bonus show on Christmas day and we were more than happy to oblige. Full of great festive songs and some truly awful riddles (puns). We share Christmas memories (some were Paul’s and some weren’t) but most of all we bring good cheer and best wishes.
Our Swell Oh Els today were Scott Frank’s Godless and the German time travel series Dark. Thanks to Hebden Radio, follow us on twitter @PaulCoates_ & @MarkCharnock and have yourselves a very merry winter festival – see you in 2018. We love you, bye!
In which we have our first guest on the show, a human equivalent of the interrupting cow. Inventions this week come from the world of fashion – coats and diets; though not combined.

In which Mark wonders if serial killers can be considered celebrities, and would you invite them to open your supermarket? Paul goes back to the Darwin Awards for his inventions. And there’s a tiny on air spat about musical choices.

In which Mark gets paranoid over his prep for this show being seen by tech support. Paul scours the Darwin Awards for his inventions. And Paul The Riddler infuriates his less talented student Mark.
In which Paul shows he’s the riddle master, and Mark sulks that he isn’t. Mark’s inventions are Donald Trump based, and Paul’s are app based nonsense.
In which Paul went to London to visit the Queen, and Mark recalls the time that he and Her Maj watched a pub explode. Mark’s inventions see famous roles that were offered to other actors first. And Paul introduces us to game of the moment Zen-Volt.
The day after Paul walked 100 miles, he is dopey beyond belief. And two days before the General Election Mark and Paul hope without much heart (if only they’d known what was about to happen). This podcast is strong and stable, and funny too.

In which we have some very exciting news. We’re moving the podcast to Hebden Radio. We will have the same features, but with added music. We’re very excited, and have been working on this happening for some time. The show will go out on Hebden Radio every other Wednesday at 8pm. Starting next week, Wed 12th October. You can listen to the whole show then, or at any point by going to their website and clicking the Left Of Leftfield picture.
We will also be releasing the show as a podcast without the music, which will come to you in its usual form. So doing nothing will mean you still get the podcast. We hope you’re as excited about this as we are.
Also, as if that wasn’t enough, you can now watch our short film In Sight – made on an iPad, over a single day, this short film is well worth watching with the sound turned up to enjoy Pete Duggal’s amazing soundtrack.
Keep listening, hope you like the new show, and get in touch with us at email@example.com or on twitter @paulcoates_ @markcharnock_
