The Slump Podcast
The Slump - 16007/31/15
This week Owen makes an appearance (well, not appearance - it's just audio, and he was on the phone so even we couldn't see him). There's also an update on one of our campaigns, an update on a sinkhole, and one of the team has some very special...
The Slump - 159
Despite all having injured their feet, the chaps are back and discussing everything from a machine that makes bad eggs, to a hat for bananas, and there's the usual mix of heady excitement, and brooding anger.
The Slump 158b
Why is there a "b" after the number in the title for this podcast? It's because I got confused last week and wrote that it was podcast 158 when it was really 157. Who cares though, when you've got rich chatter about such matters as stranger danger,...
The Slump 158
Dan and Brendan sit there like people on chairs, talking about Japanese onions, sinkholes in space, and Florence from the Machine being flung into a well.
The Slump - 156
This week there's a totalitarian vibe to the start of the show, but that doesn't mean the chaps aren't as slovenly and disorganised as normal. Featuring Asian news, Kickstarter updates, and lots of silly bits of audio.
The Slump - 155
This week the chaps are slightly more tired and lethargic than usual. But who cares, this isn't a podcast to make you get up and go, it's a podcast to make you sit in a near-horizontal position, so let's all just slump together shall we?
The Slump - 154
Dan and Ian share their thoughts on topics as wide ranging as nature, drinking, eating, back to nature again, eating again, and some other stuff that isn't nature or eating or drinking. We hope it pleases you. A service charge of 12.5% has been added...
The Slump - 153
This week features a lot of Asian news, some time travel, and a couple of bits that required even more explanation than usual. Still, it's free so just remember that when you're complaining to your friend about the quality...
The Slump - 152
Well, this week there were numerous setbacks in the recording of The Slump, so there's a chance that amidst the talk of milk cartons, public releases of gas, and suggestions of how to improve nature programs, you might notice a few little bobbles and...
The Slump - 151
The team are having trouble speaking, but despite this they still managed to ramble on for a fair old time, discussing missing lyrics, the trouble with milk, and how much you can reasonably ask a mechanic to pay for your dinner.
150 - Return from holiday
To paraphrase Thin Lizzy, the chaps are back in town (the studio). What do they discuss? Well, there's some international politics, some Asian news, and some sinkholes - just the normal kind of noise you're used to hearing from us, so roll up your...
The Slump 149 - Pre-holiday shortie
The podcast had to be recorded earlier this week as some of the team are going on holiday for a bit. Before that though, Dan and Brendan got into a small studio and recorded themselves talking about some stuff they'd read. It's shorter than a normal...
The Slump 148 - Outside!
The sun was shining and it was a lovely day, so we got out of the studio and went to Slump outside instead. What does this mean? Not a great deal, except that we don't talk over music and at certain points there's an interruption as a man wheels a...
The Slump 147 - No particular theme
Right then, another Friday brings another Slump - this week there's no particular theme, other than the usual merry making and piss-taking, a bit of audio, a couple of news stories, but let's be honest - nobody actually listens to this to get the news...
The Slump 146 - Easter/advertising/stuff
We've been trying to theme the podcast each week, but sometimes it doesn't really fit into a neat category, so this week is the Easter-and-taking-the-piss-out-of-adverts-and-some-other-stuff. Then at the end it gets so confusing that no theme could...
The Slump 145 - A critique of modern culture
This week it's a thorough cultural examination of where we are in the world. That, and just taking the piss out of things we think are funny.
The Slump - Hello, is it The Slump You're Looking For?
In a weak effort to get more listeners, the team have launched an unusual initiative - to encourage people to get involved. To the untrained ear, it might sound simply like begging for attention, but we assure you it's much more nuanced than that.
The Slump - 6th March
Recently, we've been theming each podcast, but this week it isn't themed. Is that because of the sheet diversity of topics covered? Not at all, it's simply because we forgot. Never mind though, just sit back and enjoy your new Slump podcast, this week...
The Slump - 20th Feb - The Vaguely Asian-Themed One
This week the Slump team discuss Asia, (sort of). Well, there's mentions of Japan, North AND South Korea, and Chinese New Year, so that's a large part of the continent. Anyway, who cares, it's not like you download this for the factual content do you?
The Slump - 13th Feb - People Are Strange
This week the theme is about people being weird. To be honest, a lot of times that's sort of what this podcast is about anyway, so I wouldn't bother getting thinking about it too much. I mean, who cares anyway, it's only a bit of fun innit?
