Lithuania at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics - Wikicast 052 (drunk special)

January 23, 2019

Oh boy. You lovely volk donated money to charity in the Jingle Jam on the promise that Dan and I would get hammered and record an episode. So, er, here we go... it's the end of both our careers. Simon mistakes a famous composer for a Nazi scientist. Dan's northern and Aussie sides get combined. A fan doesn't have brain cancer! It's all a goddamn mess so just sit back and enjoy...

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.
