Wikicast 025 SPECIAL - Cicada 3301 (with Taha Khan)

February 24, 2018

Dan and Simon are joined by Taha Khan aka KhanStopMe to discuss a rather shady organisation... for a bit. Immediately followed by discussion of approaches for making YouTube videos, an in-depth review of BLACK PANTHER, a crisis corner all about closure, and a few reader emails. Also baguettes. Taha is a top lad, you should definitely check him out!

Wikicast 024 - Billy Austin

February 17, 2018

 Goodness what an episode! After a shaky start (blame Clarktholicism) we talk about Vidcon, film directors, the Apple Homepod, tackle a chronic illness in crisis corner, answer your questions in correspondence corner, and see the triumphant return of The Time Traveller with the Extremely Large Forehead. We had a lot of fun recording this, and hope you enjoy listening!

Also next week we have a guest with us (ooooOOOOOOooo) so do get your correspondence in nice and early this week so we have plenty to talk about. We're counting on you!

Wikicast 020 - Tecmo Super Bowl II: Special Edition

January 13, 2018

If you've ever wondered which one of us has the bigger penis, the answer is confirmed in this podcast. Also featuring: sports, retro games, merch discussion, and a mystery unboxing.

ALSO WE LAUNCHED A PATREON LOL. For just $1 a month (the price of a can of coke or something) you can help the show massively by 1) helping us pay for hosting, 2) keep Wikipedia afloat, 3) help us make more content for you, and 4) pledge your allegience to #TeamCat or #TeamDog. We're not asking for much, but if you can help us make the podcast grow and get better and better it would be massively appreciated. Hopefully not just by us, but also by our audience too! So really you're helping yourself. Why are you still reading this? GO TO DAT LINK

Wikicast 019 - Cook & Becker

January 6, 2018

Never again. Fan fiction is never going to be the same again. We're back in the new year, featuring a fat Simon, an art dealer, a nasal feudal system, and a royal cover-up...

It was extremely windy in the UK when we filmed this, sorry if some wind noise creeps in every now and again!
