Wikicast 014 - Hymn Sing

October 28, 2017

Yes, we couldn't quite believe that we got this article either. But don't fear - we don't actually talk about music that much! In this episode Simon has a complete breakdown, we talk about films, scaring kids, and a rather saucy fan fiction has Dan serving Simon coq au vin... minus the vin.
