When I created the idea of the now Wise Men Say podcast (marvelously promoted by Roker Report), I wanted to try and keep it fairly original.
Well, that can only work to an extent due to the weekly content we provide, but what I'm trying to say is that I didn't want to just go over old, recycled stuff that had been done to death in the media and caused many a meltdown on the RTG - aka the debate room for the clinically insane. I think we managed that one count on the latest podcast and failed on another.
THAT Martin Samuel piece in the Daily Mail this week is utter toilet and, much like that turd that won't flush away, I felt we had to give it extra attention just for piece of mind. Martin Atkinson's ineptitude, however, went without discussion as we all know the obvious ineptitude of the inept referee's mistake.
"Friend Of The Show" Richard Mason offa the Northern Echo joined Gareth and I in the studio and asserted from the start how much he's been working on his Quiet Voice Syndrome (QVS). I tried to make a Spinal Tap reference joke thingy which didn't particularly work regarding this very issue, but Mr. Mason evened that out by making a Biriyani analogy later on that Gareth, particularly, found highly amusing. I was starting to wonder what my lass was making for tea by that point.
As Frank Skinner declined the offer to join us on the phone (true story) Warren Stephens gave us the West Brom insight. Warren writes blogs for the Express & Star and is obviously looking for a different character from the Jekyll and Hyde scenario that is Stephane Sessegnon to make an appearance on Saturday. If I knew which one of those characters was which I'd have made a better job of that analogy.
