The Wikicast
Zara Tindall - Wikicast 102

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!

Prostanthera densa - Wikicast 098

It's erect, it's aromatic, it's often compact... it's the Wikicast! Simon and Dan talk about a shrub before getting on to the important issue of splurging their recent watches and listens and generally catching up. It's been a while! Also, why can't Daaan pronounce traaaanslation?

Dan and Simon create the most dazzling, entertaining, and dangerous sport known to humankind: Plughole Panic.

 

Simon also panics Dan with his Neanderthal impression, we both learn about archery, and we talk about yet another wikipedia article predicated on a lie.
