Four Horsememes of the Apocalypse

It's a very death-centric episode this week. Amy tells the story of the saddest murder there ever was, following up with advice on how to survive the Titanic. Hint: Doctors and the Amish would not approve. Becky, meanwhile, has the most savage obituary ever put to paper – but thankfully, she's also got some ideas for films Hollywood should make instead of remaking Clueless to lighten things up Follow us on @andthenwhatpod, email us on


The Slick Dandified Cake Eater

Hyped up on coffee and pastries, this week is an especially giggly one. Becky has a Scottish folk tale and the story of a Very Special Guest, whereas Amy talks about The Anti-Flirt Club (not quite as boring as it sounds) and the story of Thor's Marriage. There's an impressively bad range of accents on offer this episode, and for that we really are very sorry. Follow us on @andthenwhatpod on all the good social networks, and email us at


Guys, Guys... Do You Like Goats?

Look, for various reasons we sound somewhat delirious this week, but if you roll with it we're all gonna have a good time. Becky returns from Ireland and manages to restrain herself to just the one story about her holiday, while Amy tells us about the great Carmarthen cheese riots and a potentially marriage-ending misunderstanding from Reddit. We end the episode by honouring the new Queen of Sweden, possibly humanity, and a good rant about Welsh accents. As ever, you can follow us on...


Live The Life You Love, Love The Life You Live

We talk about some pretty amazing women this week, including America's first female detective, and an iconic soul singer. Amy changes the tone completely with a lovely Welsh folktale, and the ladies talk about the stories they're absorbing this week, which include murder and menstruation. Follow us on @andthenwhatpod, email us on, leave us a review however your dear heart desires – but if you've got nothing nice to say then SHUT UP.


Sit On My Furry Tail

Considering halfway through this episode we confront the reality that innocent teenagers listen to this podcast, we don't reign ourselves in at *all*. Becky tells a folk tale that ends up actually being about Chadwick Boseman's excellent time management, Amy shares the tale of the coolest, note-leaving murderer to ever not exist, we talk about THE WORST BRIDE IN THE WORLD and finish up by giving everyone the Disney remake 2018 deserves.

LGBT Kewlness

This episode is topical AF. It was July 4th this week, aka the USA's birthday, so Amy tells the story of the time Poland sent them a birthday card. It's Pride weekend, so Becky shares a tale of Gay's The Word bookshop and the LGBT community which thrived around it. It's Becky's birthday on Friday, so she...well, she talks about how loved she is and how everyone in her family adores her, but it's her birthday so we'll let her off. And then, because it wouldn't be And Then What? without...


Go Hug Your Family

This week we've returned to Not London to visit the other half of The Naughty Step podcast, Stuart Heritage! Stu reads from his new book, Don't Be A Dick, Pete, and all three of us manage to tell loads of stories about our families without having compared notes or anything. But if you're worried you'll miss one of our tropes, fear not - Becky has a creepy German folktale complete with silly voices for you. Join us every Sunday for a brand new episode of And Then What? The podcast all about...


Ceramic Gannets Are Playing The Axiom Stage At 2000 Trees

This week Amy and Becky's special guests are all of London, busy making noise in the background. We've got a mixed bag of stories for you this week, starting with a nightmare mother-in-law, a batshit story from Florida, a sinful piece from Tumblr, a creepy folktale from Italy, and ending with an amazing story from the world of toys. Join us every Sunday for a brand new episode of And Then What? The podcast all about stories! Find us on social media on @andthenwhatpod, and email us at...


Giving Birth Is Metal AF

We're back with another guest! Hannah Flynn: video game maker by day, parent to a tiny baby by night. This week we talk about the power of protest through crafting, a brilliant story about Hannah's granddad, and several bodily functions. Amy and Becky learn that giving birth is metal AF, second to which Becky learns what an episiotomy is. Finally, we get a gift! We never get gifts, and after this one we might not ask for another...

Touch The Poop

This week's episode has five stories that probably couldn't be more different. Becky starts us off with a thank you letter from a little old lady who has more to her than meets the eye. Then Amy talks through two women who had a "romantic, non-sexual friendship" but were quite probably queer AF. Becky's second story is a sorry tale of lost children, Satan's abused wife, and shady washerwomen, and Amy follows it with a story she wrote about a monster who has every accent in the UK apart from...


Hold Onto Your Pants

And we're back with another podcast crossover! This time with one one half of The Naughty Step podcast, Robyn Wilder! The stories take a decidedly creepy tone this week with unexplained mysteries and an horrific folktale, taking us to the far reaches of Italy... and Sneyd Park. We also take a massive tonal shift into Richard Nixon's attempt to introduce a universal income - spoiler: doesn't happen. Hold onto your pants, prepare for your ovaries to explode, and settle in for another episode...


Praise Jesus, Ride Horses, Have A Good Time

This is simultaneously a very short and very long episode, courtesy of us only doing three stories but Amy's being an absolute whopper. We start with another poem from Becky's Poppa, this one all about booze! Then Amy tells us the story of Dennis Nilsen, aka the Muswell Hill Murderer, which is as sad as it is horrifying. So to lighten the mood, Becky ends on a story from Reddit about a guy who tried to impress a girl and ended up violently – nay, performatively – shitting himself. It's a...



This episode contains not one but *two* weird-ass folk tales! One will teach you how to deal with a pesky mountain troll and one will teach you how NOT to deal with a woman who has spurned your advances (TL;dr – if you have to bribe them with magic toys which sing Britney Spears songs in order to make them kiss you, you're doing it wrong). We also share the tale of two incredible little kids, one who wrangles work experience at the Washington Post and one who runs off to Bali when he gets...


And Then Moderate Fantasy Violence

What the world has described as the least ambitious crossover event in history, we're doing our first ever cross-pod episode! Alastair and Nick from pop culture analysis podcast Moderate Fantasy Violence join us this week. We talk about fake news on Tumblr, the life of American hero of the Welsh miners, Paul Robeson, the funniest work-related fuck up ever, and we round things off with a wild true crime story from Baltimore. Follow us on all good social media platforms of @andthenwhatpod, and...


Bulbous Salutation

This week's episode is about our two favourite things: heroes, and sex. We start with the life of Gustav Victor Rudolf Born, who was somehow linked to Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer and Olivia Newton John. Then we move on to Bunny Rodger, a war hero who went into battle wearing blusher and carrying a copy of Vogue under his arm, before returning to Britain to dress Scarlett O'Hara. Then Becky tells us about the time a man who studies algae for a living accidentally ended WWII, and Amy talks...


Bad Things Happen In This Bra

This week features a lot of amazing ladies, from civil rights activists Joan Trumpauer Mullholland, to the world's first novelist Murasaki Shikibu, to the fictional but entirely brilliant Scottish folktale heroine Katherine Crackernuts. Amy also tells a brief (super brief) scary story, and blows Becky's mind a little with a tale of what happens with supermarkets meet science. Bonus stories in the form of Tumblr's analysis of Genesis (the bible chapter, not the band), when The West Wing met...


I Punched A Seagull Once

It’s a longie but a goodie this week. Lovely listener Sophie Patterson sent us a book and Becky has not one but three stories inspired by it – two Scottish folk tales and the tale of feminist hero Kate Sheppard. Amy, meanwhile, tells us about possibly the most unlucky hour anyone has ever spent in a hotel, ever. We both share cautionary tales about stealing lunches, and one of us admits we’ve punched a seagull – ten points if you guess who did it. Oh, and Becky does not one but TWO dodgy...


An Aquatic Minge Of Some Sort

It's another guest episode! This week we have Dan Mitchell, aka The Man Who Keeps Correcting Amy's Pronunciation, who may well be the Welshest man alive. Let yourself be soothed by his magically deep voice, which resonates at a timbre that allows him to communicate with subterranean creatures as well as humans, as he tells you first the story of Welsh legends Pwyll and Arawn and then of Brother Anansi and the Miracle Cow. Meanwhile, Becky talks about Cardiff legend Toy Mic Trev and Amy tries...


No One Has Genitals In The Afterlife

It's a particularly giddy episode this week – full of calzone and extremely, extremely processed chicken nuggets, Amy and Becky tell you the story of the woman giving a blowjob on a Sydney train because "it was her birthday" (note: it wasn't actually her birthday), the long-lost daughter who ruins a woman's life, and the nicest bartender in the world. They also demonstrate how NOT to deal with finding your boyfriend's porn collection, and what REALLY happened when Ariel went to see Ursula....


Is This Episode Sponsored By Hugh Jackman?

This week’s And Then What? is a bit of a family special. First, Becky has found possibly the one r/relationships with a positive outcome. Then, Amy takes us through Pauline Dakin and the strange but true tale of why her family had to keep moving around (spoiler: it involves the Mafia. Sort of). Then Becky talks to us about Helen Gibson, aka the best damn trick rider in showbusiness, before Amy finishes off by sharing some stories about her nan, who died last week. You might think that sounds...
