Mr. H.,

Ask George: Would you please say "Asian ball jointed dolls" in a future podcast?

Your sick voice did have a lovely depth to it, but it's something you can achieve when you're well, and knowing you were sick ruined the sexiness.

Take Care

Great Beatles question. Coincidentally I recently asked a friend who is a huge Beatles fan to help me understand the appeal. I think I never liked them mostly because I grew up on classic rock and at some point felt I had to reject my parents music. So he handed me the remasters boxed set and said start with Revolver. I totally get it now. That mix of familiar comfort and left-field oddity is there are I love it.

Is this the tuning thing you were talking about?

The Goonies were never in a flat; The Goodies certainly were - the only other alternative is The Young Ones (which was four guys). The Goodies have a massive 'cult following' in Australia - Bridget Mermikides has even played with Bill Oddie!

The Goon Show? Seminal British comedy that inspired Monty Python and lots of other things?

(Look at me! I can watch documentaries!)

it's the Goon Show http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Goon_Show

btw between the Black Cauldron and the Little Marmaid Disney released The Great Mouse detective and Oliver & Company. I find this movies quite interesting as it reflects a very complicated period for the Disney Studio.

there's a documentary about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuHa9wRVaYA

I bet it was The Goodies. Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie. Tim B-T has a strong Python connection: he wrote and performed with Cleese and Chapman on "At Last The 1948 Show", along with Marty Feldman. The "Four Yorkshiremen" sketch was originally from that show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAtSw3daGoo

The Goodies?

The Goonies sounds familiar... it rings one of those bells in my head.

But British comedy of that era involving 3 guys in a flat sounds a lot like The Goodies.

And oh hell YES about David Bowie doing that song. :)
Australian tour details were listed in the notes of the last ep, thanks to Catherine D. :)

Get well soon! :/
As for the 'why don't drink', I ended up writing a long answer after getting asked so often - and it still gets occasional reads online. But I think my reasons are slightly different to yours (a different cultural background for a start - pressure to drink in Australia is probably stronger):

I really LIKE your "I'm sick" voice. I'm enchanted by its deepness.
