Ep 51 // Large Questions: Part 2

What ya doin'? Who's with ya? We return to our mailbag to tackle haphazard rankings, more Partridge Monopoly and a litany of our own gaffes, in an episode so good it makes Tom Dark forget his own name.

Ep 50 // Large Questions: Part 1

We're back, carefully opening the drawer marked 'your feedback', then saying 'Bloody hell': Chocolate replicas, experiencing Alan live, (Bride of) Chucky Egg and Alan vs. Noel. Also: Why is Partridge like the Beatles? Is Alan genuinely protective of Lynn? Is Sidekick Simon the inspiration behind Denton Abbey? How could we get it so wrong on Alan's canine companions? // Get in touch: | Instagram: @monkeytennispod | Twitter: @thepartridgepod |...


Ep 49 // Welcome To The Places Of My Life (LIVE)

Recorded live at London Comic Con, we tackle Alan's homage to his beloved hometown of Norwich, prompting us to talk obesity hotspots, Alan's 10 minute commute, the real Orbital Digital, leisure centre hygiene, Hitler and dogging.

We've gone up the BT Tower, down to Norfolk Park and back to the days of Teletext in order to explore some of Alan's many contributions to Comic Relief (including THAT Kate Bush medley). We start with his 90s appearances, prompting chat on Bryan Ferry, 'Bladakker' and Big Brother evictions. Plus: How did Right Said Fred happen? Is cack back? And where did Alan's Canadian wife Toni come from? (Canada, obviously). Let's go swimsuit! // Get in touch: | Instagram:...

Simon's out and Zoe's in this week as we discuss Alan's chair slide, caller Samantha's 'fat arms', Nick's bootie love and the trouble with caller anonymity.

Ep 45 // Shadow + Tax: Mid Morning Matters S1E5

Quease! Glands! Hamza! Palm piss! In this week's slightly manky episode we see what happens when Partridge goes Paxman, celebrate the return of capes and put Alan vs. the millionaire, ridiculous LinkedIn people and Alan's earnings under the microscope.

Ep 43 // Idiom + Inception: Mid Morning Matters S1E3

Ep 42 // Mustard + Pepper: Mid Morning Matters S1E2

How funny IS Sidekick Simon? Why film in just a couple of rooms? Did Herbie really go bananas? Just a few questions answered this week. In addition, expect Billie Piper facts 'coming out the wazoo', and we talk hometown heroes, fowl play and the curse of 'Tottenham Cartoon'.

Ep 39 // Simon Greenall AKA 'Michael The Geordie'

A very special guest arrives just in time for the last in the current series - Mr Simon Greenall lifts the lid on the formation and (alleged) demise of Michael the Geordie, how Partridge gets made, and the best bits that never made it to air. But first, there was the small matter of Admiral Nelson to discuss... // Get in touch: / Twitter: @thepartridgepod / / Instagram: @monkeytennispod
