Giving Birth Is Metal AF

6/16/2018
More
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

6/9/2018
More
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...

Hold Onto Your Pants

6/2/2018
More
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

5/26/2018
More
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...

Potaken

5/19/2018
More
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

5/12/2018
More
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.

Bulbous Salutation

5/5/2018
More
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...

Bad Things Happen In This Bra

4/28/2018
More
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

4/21/2018
More
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

4/14/2018
More
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...

No One Has Genitals In The Afterlife

4/7/2018
More
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...

It's our first ever LIVE episode! With an audience and everything! Hear us try to zjuzj up health and safety announcements, teach the audience complicated podcast secrets like clapping, and try our best not to burp into the microphones despite being plied with prossecco.

Dogs With Jobs

3/17/2018
More
It's a surprisingly animal-heavy episode, this week. Becky has another poem from her Grandpa, this time about what happened when her mother accidentally stole a dog, and tells a story that makes us all question what we ever, *ever* did to deserve dogs. Amy, meanwhile, tells us about how Pope Gregory accidentally killed a hundred million people because he didn't like cats. Becky also reads something she wrote about family and who *really* gets first place, while Amy reads something *she's*...

She Can Write, She Can Fight, She Can Work It Of A Night

2/24/2018

This episode is full of questions. Why did God punish an unruly vicar by giving him in a hole in one? Why did the Welsh spend years charging into battle screaming "Justice for Gwenllian?" Why is one of Becky's Poppa's poems hanging up near a nurse's office? Why don't people have a poop knife for every bathroom? And why did someone leave a comment on one of Amy's videos which just said "titties"? Thankfully, we manage to answer all these questions and more. Well. Apart from the last one....

The Least Romantic Valentines Episode Ever

2/10/2018
More
In an episode that, due to technical issues, sounds like it was recorded in another dimension, we are taking on the twin holidays of Galentines Day and Valentines Day. To celebrate Galentines, we tell stories of female friendship: Amy talks about two French women who took on the French revolution, and Becky tells us how Marilyn Monroe did Ella Fitzgerald a solid back in the days whens segregation was still a thing. Then, moving onto Valentines, Amy shares a story of true love which...

It's episode thirteen, but lucky for you we still have some excellent stories. We talk about the Demon Liver Surgeon of Queen's Hospital, a mystery race of people Amy is pretty sure are angels on earth, a Norse legend of which can be summed up by the line "Fuck the giants", and Becky tells two stories which are basically about how fricking cool her grandparents are.
