Short Music for Short People - Wikicast 107

April 15, 2022

Simon and Dan haven't spoken in weeks apart from the London incident so expect a big catch-up! Along the way they discover a rather unique album, talk about their latest discoveries on Netflix, and a reader describes the first (?) wikicast-themed dream...

Lots of passion and geekery in this one, enjoy!

Simon gets existential about YouTube, Dan proposes the Hans Zimmer crossover we've all been waiting for, and we introduce you to one of the finest Croatian musicians you've never heard of. Also, Simon gets turned into a child?

Truly, one of our best episodes.

It's a jobbing boat. What more needs to be said? A lot, it turns out.

This episode is a doozy. We talk anime, give new music recommendations (check out the links below), Simon sings an impromptu country song, and Dan makes some... interesting... choices in a choose-your-own-adventure fan fiction. Not one to miss!

Zara Tindall - Wikicast 102

January 6, 2022

The episode with a visual aid. Simon and Dan discuss House of Gaga, Olympic sports, the Jingle Jam, and finally read the brilliant Holopod Star Wars fan fiction!

For reasons that will become clear in the next episode, this episode is very, very, very, very dated. We recorded this over a month ago, as is obvious from our discussion of the Jingle Jam. To cut a long story short, Simon got quite sick (but is better now!).

In a remarkable piece of continuity, Simon and Dan are in Sweden this episode! Specifically listening to some Jazz in the Pawnshop. Yes, PAWNshop. Dan gets misty-eyed about vinyl, Simon rants about DUNE, and both have opinions on James Bond...

 

Next episode: the Holopod!
