Dry those tears, untie those yellow ribbons round the ole oak trees, because we are, as promised a month ago, BACK. We’ve had a lovely sort-of-holiday (which you can find out more about next Tuesday!), and are raring to go with Answer Me This! Episode 141:
It’s a corker of an episode for fans of older ladies, with appearances from vintage hotties Merle Oberon (phwoar!), Marguerite Patten (schwing!), Joan Hickson (hubba hubba!) and Angela Lansbury (fapfapfapfapfap), along with unrelated topics of conversation including:
the brains of Tostao
Brad Meldhau vs. jazzercise, Jazzles and Jazz apples
Cantona vs. Sartre
Polar Bear vs. music for polar bears
Gone with the Wind vs. Bollywood
the Azerbaijan Film Institute’s top 100 movies?
the Big E agricultural festival
the best Miss Marple.
Plus: Olly reenacts The Wrong Trousers at a posh wedding (say, do any of you want to bid on a pair of 38″ Hugo Boss trousers, worn once?); Helen is a philistine when it comes to Citizen Kane and ball ponds; and Martin the Sound Man must have grown up a bit over the break because he manages not to cackle at the phrase ‘ball pond’. Meanwhile, over on our new app, this week’s extra content is a merry tale of gazpacho. Soup-er!
Having been off on our break, we’ve returned with much to tell you about, including Martin the Sound Man’s new album, ‘We Went to the Bottom of the Ocean’ (make sure to endure to the very end of this episode for a sample track!) and our new series of videos, Helen and Olly’s Great British Questions, which will kick off next Tuesday. But amidst all this novelty, please remember to supply AMT with its very life-blood by sending us a QUESTION, so please do that by leaving a voice message on 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you next week, with plenty more excitement in the offing!
Helen and Olly
