Travel with us back to August 2011, when AMT went outside for the first time and recorded an episode at the Green Man festival in Wales. We sound annoyingly hyper and Olly gets stung by a wasp twice, so you might understand why we never went outside again. This episode originally appeared at answermethispodcast.com/episode189.

Unearthed from the AMT vaults, it's episode 134, originally aired 6 May 2010. Helen and Martin were freshly united in engagement, and we didn't quite yet know it but the Conservatives and Lib Dems were about to be united by a hung parliament. Also, way back then, phone chargers were much chunkier, which made it more notable when people were smuggling them in their bodily passages. Plus! Questions about JDate, dinosaur meat, porky pies, the newly completed Burj Khalifa, and fonts. This...

Unearthed from the AMT vaults, it's episode 29, originally aired 20 September 2007 - the first year of the show, so very much a different era of our lives. And a different era of Britain, when Gordon Brown was in charge, Bebo was still alive, and Nuts TV was the new (but still too old) kid on the media block. Plus, hear Helen's grandmother's amazing conspiracy theory about Princess Diana, and how Martin the Sound Man got hustled into buying ill-fitting bespoke shorts. This retro episode is...
