What’s the grossest thing you’ve ever found in your food? A worm? A lung? Arsenic-laced hundreds and thousands? Gird your stomach for Answer Me This! Episode 355, in which we discuss:

food hygiene ratings
pig nipple bacon
Stanley Mann style
dating your dadalike
shipping it
Larry Stylinson
stans
stoners
Agatha Christie’s cornflour
store detectives
and
that Subway smell.

Plus: Olly shows up a logical flaw in ‘Stan‘; Helen went on an evening out, once; and Martin the Sound Man’s fragile guts are the only restaurant hygiene rating you need.

Today’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App is a question from Michelle about the phrase “How’s your father?” Get the app for iPadPhones, Android and Windows devices.

EPISODE 323: not all snails

September 17, 2015

What is the greatest sorrow of being let go from a job? The loss of income? The blow to the self-esteem? The fear for the future? Or not even having tried the macho peas???

In Answer Me This! Episode 323, listeners wrestle with this problem and many more, such as:

Venetian gondolas
bendy straws
cheapskate dinner party cheats
the Queen’s Privy Council
snail-purging
Nando’s in the USA
Right Honourable Friends
coming out parties
the cola rankings
and
ironed underwear.

Plus: prepare to be FASCINATED as Olly shares his laundry workflow; Helen’s dad has failed to capitalise on Nando’s art collection; and Martin the Sound Man stops flirting and cuts to the chase – he’s starting a new podcast so prepare for launch.

In today’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App – available for iThings, Android and Windows devices – Martin recreates the Wicker Man out of straws and Helen inadvertently causes future mental scarring in her niece.

If you need ointment rubbed into your own mental scars, send us questions: leave voicemails on the Question Line – call 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis – and send emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. Befriend us online at facebook.com/answermethis and twitter.com/HelenAndOlly.

NSFW slugs

September 14, 2010

** Click here for Episode 149 **

Time for some raunch, thanks to John from Edinburgh:

I was just listening to podcast 148, and you discussed slug mating. I thought you might appreciate these links showing Leopard slugs having sex. It is one of the freakiest most amazing things you will ever see.

He’s right! Not to mention romantic. Skip forward to the 1min40 mark if you want to go straight to the hot slug-on-slug action with no flirtation beforehand:

If that’s got you in the mood for more X-rated mini-fauna, click here. You perv.

EPISODE 148 – less fit than Buzby and Maureen Lipman

September 2, 2010

Welcome to September, fellows; and right there along with that back-to-school feeling, blackberries and the looming return of Strictly Come Dancing, is Answer Me This! Episode 148:


This classic episode is available to BUY NOW for just 79p at the Answer Me This! Store, through a secure server, without DRM restriction. CLICK HERE to find out more and support our podcast. (This helps keep our most recent episodes free)

In which we consider:

serving suggestions
Kris Marshall’s erection
hot nuts
booze calories
Andrew Lansley
Panini sticker distribution
Ruddles
overripe Bounty Bars
dodgems vs. bumper cars
natural light vs. unnatural flickery light
Olly’s grandma vs. black chandeliers
Britain’s Most Wanted Man
salted slugs
and
Amanda Seyfried’s jugs

Furthermore, Olly suggests that Brutus might not have been a murderer but a midwife; Helen wishes death upon the loathsome Adam’n’Jane; and Martin the Sound Man explains the hydrodynamics of a log flume. See? Science CAN be fun!

Over on the app, we deal with a question from David about how cavemen cut umbilical cords. Although Olly doesn’t deal that well, thanks to his curious belly button phobia. Was he flogged with a dessicated placenta as a young boy? The mystery persists…

Now don’t forget to net yourself some free audioliterature courtesy of Audible.co.ukclick here to find out about their splendid offers for AMTfans, and we can all revel in their largesse together. Then, you might send us a QUESTION, in the form of a voice message on 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis, or an email to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. Then we’ll all be happy, hiphiphip hooray!

See you next week; and we might be seeing Ian Collins as well. Who knows? Tune in to Episode 149 to find out!

Helen and Olly
