Cuddle up, listeners. Recorded on the day of the US election before the result came in, Answer Me This! Episode 344 is a relic of the pre-Trump era, in which we blithely speak of:
Savoyterranean Homesick Blues
Argos’s finest tractor mower
Napoleon Dynamite vs Black Swan
zesty Richard Blackwood
where is Condoleezza Rice?
Plus: Olly will lie through his artificially whitened teeth to get on the radio; Helen was lured onto Late Night Womanʼs Hour under false pretences; and Martin the Sound Man used to love a good read of the Argos Catalogue.
