Christmas (surname) - Wikicast 051

December 22, 2018

It's our Christmas special! I can only apologise for the amount of time that we spend talking about Christmas movies and singing. It's almost like that's what our personalities are based on. Mary Christmas everyone!

Department of Trade and Industry (United Kingdom) - Wikicast 050

December 18, 2018

Simon gets rather angry about Brexit (and Name of the Wind). Our intrepid heroes also discuss climate change, Djesse (the new album from Jacob Collier), the Yogscast jingle jam, and about a million links. And a guy with a leaf blower.
