Wikicast 029 - Permanent Representative of Colombia to the United Nations

March 24, 2018

In this rushed, shitshow of an episode Simon and Dan discuss the racism scandal coming out of Exeter University, an order of knights represented at the UN, and some watching recommendations. Also Simon can't say the word accredited.

Again, massive apologies for the rush this week. Between Dan's schedule and internet problems we just ran out of time. We'll make it up to you next episode!

Wikicast 028 - Mehmed the Conqueror

March 17, 2018

This week we actually talk about the wiki article for a while, and (statistically) incredibly it's an article one of us had actually been on before! Also this week you hear how terrible Simon is at accents, a meta discussion of online `fame', a whole bunch of correspondence, and a new fan fiction! What a banger of an episode.

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
