Ep.17 An Open Letter to Chris Waddle

December 18, 2016

Hello there dear listener.

Thanks for downloading the podcast and we've got a peach of a pod for your ears this/morning/this evening - whenever and wherever you're listening.

We set off on our date night, to a golf driving range (Helen's idea) but as the date unfolded, it's direction took a real left turn due to an unvelievable coincidence! Listen and all will be revealed.

If you enjoy the show please tell your friends and get in touch with any of your suggestions for future datenights.

Ep. 16 Rob (& Helen) The Builder (s)

December 11, 2016

Hello there dear listener,

This week we're having the bathroom sorted out, so it made perfect sense to do the podcast with our brilliant bulders, Pete Jackson and his son Danny and his nephew Ben.

Pete had Rob cut through the soil pipe with an angle grinder and Helen and Rob find fun in trying to come up with inventive ways to stay clean while being without a bathroom.

Ep. 15 Very Sore Bottoms

December 4, 2016

Hello there dear listener,

Thanks for downloading episode 15! This week Helen organises for us to go extreme mountain biking! Which is odd, as one of her biggest fears in life is riding, or rather, falling off bikes. So this week the anxiety shoe is firmly on the other foot and Helen gets the fear!!

Of course, there's all the usual ribbing of rob's clothes and loads of laughs and sonic atmosphere from the top of the trail.

Massive thankyou's to James at www.bikegarage.co.uk for the free bike loan and to John at www.peakdistrictmountainbiking.co.uk for taking us lucky chumps out on the trail.

You can see some footage and pics from the day here

Ep. 14 Get Ready Cook!

November 27, 2016

Thanks for downloading episode 14 dear listener!

This week Helen springs the podcast on Rob and it's "Get Ready Cook!", which is a bit like 'Ready Steady Cook' and in no way infringes on that format and it's copyright and if anyone says so they are WRONG!

Rob's inprovised recipe is below.

1 leek chopped

1 clove garlic

1 small pack garlic and herb soft cheese

1/2 tin artichoke hearts

some red lentils

2 sweet potatoes

Fry the chopped leeks and garlic until soft and golden, boil the lentils until the buggers are cooked, then chop the artichokes and stir in the soft cheese. put this misture into ramakins or whatever you want.

mash your boiled sweet potato with some butter, put it on the top of the mixture and brown off in the oven.

eat using some sort of fork.

Enjoy!

Ep. 12 The Herringbone incident - An Improvised radio play

November 14, 2016

Hello dear Listener!

This week, Helen springs the podcast on Rob. Having just got up, Helen challeneges him to join her in improvising, writing and recording a radio play all in under an hour!

We think we've come up with a truly compelling piece of drama here and have cleared the mantelpiece in preparation for all the awards that will soon be spilling off its sides.

So, strap in and enjoy the white knuckle ride of raw creativity!

Ep. 11 Colin the Horse & The Attack of the Sex Robots!

November 6, 2016

Hello there dear sweet listener,

We hope all is well with you and thanks for downloading this podcast. This week we went Western Horse Riding. Neither of us have any real experience with horses, although Helen has weed by a horse once in Mexico. Rob was particularly aware of trying not to transfer his anxiety and nerves onto what he feared could be a skittish beast. 

Big thanks to Julia for our riding lesson and for being so much fun and or course thanks to Colin the horse.

After the podcast we discuss our Facebook page and we ponder whether we are being taken over by sex-robots!

Ep. 10 Menage a trios with Marcus Brigstocke!

October 30, 2016

Hello there dear listener!

This week we had a visit from the delightful and very funny Marcus Brigstocke. In an attempt to lift his spirits, which were pretty low, Helen suggested a cold baptism in the local river. And so she led Rob and Marcus to their very cold fate.

Ep. 9 Life Drawing!

October 23, 2016

Hello there dear listener and welcome to episode 9 of Rob and Helen's Date Night : Life Drawing!

This week we were all ready to do some Western Horse Riding on 'Colin'. When we received some last minute news concerning Colin and 'the vet' Helen delved into your emails and
Facebook posts dear listener and offered an alternative. 

 

After some initial resistance Rob succumbed to Helen's will and became a life model for the morning! It was all very tasteful! Helen duly reciprocated, 'art' was made and we reckon it's our funniest podcast to date!

 

Check the Facebook page and instagram for the fruits of our labour and enjoy the podcast.

Ep. 8 “You Dirty, Dirty Dog”

October 16, 2016

Hello there Dear Listener!

This episode is dedicated to our dog Ronnie. It's a living tribute to him, a bit like 'This is your Life' for a dog. 

Ronnie chose us at Battersea dogs home some 9 years ago and in many ways was the first big step to starting a family together. Every single day he gives us a reason to return him to Battersea and in the same breath will do something so wonderful which means we never would!

If you have a dog you'll identify with all of Ronnie's antics, if you don't have one you can feel smug in your correct decision not to have a dog.

We love him, but he's a bit of a lunatic! In this episode a dog trainer comes round to teach an old dog some new tricks and Rob and Helen regail each other with heartwarming and deeply revolting stories from Ronnie's life. Stick around to the end and we're fairly confident Ronnie says the word 'Onion'
