keep them coming...

Despite a slightly irritating diversion by Ricky and Steve into the jet setting world of celebrity (discussing who was in Los Angeles when), the magic is still there. Ricky's final observation however is true and appropriate, a podcast about the environment which is recycling a load of old stuff. We've heard it all before but when it's framed in the language of the chimp boy, it never fails to fascinate and amuse. I hope they do more...but after a bit of a break. The only concern being that Karl's new "celebrity" status may erode that blunt way of looking at the world that he inherited from god knows where.

Excellently Hilarious!

I have listened to all of the podcasts many times and think this could be the funniest, shame they arent planning on doing anymore but a great way to finish it off!
