The lost episode! Those eagle eyed listeners may have notice we went from 47 to 49 so we could have our Christmas Episode on time. Here then is a show that’s been sitting patiently waiting to drop. A show in which Paul makes the cleverest joke ever, followed by a painful silence and the realisation that he should never be clever ahead of funny. Mark brings back movie translations and the whole show is just a little bit surreal. Sorry about that. Enjoy!

We promise never to get this drunk before a podcast again. Honest.
