Episode 135: Chuckypigs, or chiggywigs?

1/21/2019

Welcome to your all new episode of The Luke and Pete Show, it's even more zeitgeisty than usual! That means we've got Prince Phillip doing his 'thing', Prince Mick Fleetwood doing *his* thing, and Prince Pete Donaldson doing *his* thing in Istanbul last weekend. Insatiable rascals, the lot of 'em. Elsewhere, there's woodlice and the frankly remarkable names we have for them here in the UK, someone who broke his ankle while listening to us (Attn: lawyers, we are *not* liable), and a tribute...

Episode 134: Tattoos, death, and a Lukealike

1/17/2019
More
Hello everyone. Nice to see you. Thanks for popping back in. You've come to the right place for Pete's obsession with crap technology, information on the most popular day of the year to get a divorce (it's in January, unsurprisingly), and individuals' power of recall over their own tattoos. In addition to this, we recite a truly fascinating tale of a young man working as an ice cream salesman for a summer that includes a deserted warehouse and a holdall full of cash. It's unmissable. We...

Episode 133: Foaming hell

1/14/2019
More
This time around on *your* Luke and Pete Show, Pete's been interviewing Steve Coogan about his new movie Stan and Ollie, and we quickly move things on to Quentin Tarantino, and then, separately, some breaking news about the 1900 Great Plague of Glasgow. You know us, ear to the ground. We also hear from a listener that embarked upon work experience at Loaded magazine with hilarious consequences and how, in one of the only occasions Pete did a full day's honest work, he covered someone in...

Episode 132: Do it all on expenses

1/10/2019
More
Welcome back to The Luke and Pete Show! It's Thursday, and so it's very nearly the weekend. Allow us to help you get there with another half an hour of nonsense, this time around including the busting of an urban myth or two, a strangely supportive attitude towards lad mags of the 90s, and obviously then Pete veers into chat about masturbation. We apologise in advance. Elsewhere there's a bit on The Inbetweeners, and then someone gets in touch to talk about stealing from vending...

Episode 131: A broad parish

1/7/2019
More
Welcome to your all new episode of The Luke and Pete Show, indeed the second issue of 2019. We're celebrating the new year by discussing Limewire, Morpheus and Kazaa (the only way of grabbing the music you wanted for free back in 2002), a couple of films we've seen, and a 70-year-old Japanese skateboarder. Obviously. After that there's plenty of stories from you too, and we thank you for your continued dedication to the podcast about absolutely nothing at all. It's such fun to make for...

Episode 130: Donaldson Futurism

1/3/2019
More
Happy New Year everyone! We're now officially in the future, it's 2019. How exciting! On today's episode we discuss some of the predictions about what 2019 might look like, including the end of the working week as we know it (something that ended for both Luke and Pete some time ago...), what the future holds for both The Luke and The Pete, and the danger of the Deepfake. Oooh, scary. As discussed, if you've got something you want us to tackle in 2019, email us:...

Episode 129: Reflections on a year, sort of

12/31/2018
More
It's New Year's Eve! But that won't deter the chaps from discussing the big issues and getting reflective about the year that's just passed. We chat Pete's resolutions for next year (including why he doesn't really believe in them, obviously), and lots more. There's also plenty of time to hear from you guys, and to have an email considered for the show, it's hello@lukeandpeteshow.com Thanks for all your support in 2018, and we look forward to seeing more of you in 2019! Stay safe and call...

Episode 128: Betwixtmas

12/27/2018

We're in that weird period of time between Christmas and New Year where no-one is really doing much of anything apart from you poor souls that have no choice but to go into work. This episode is for you, we got your back. For the rest of us, this week means leftover food, TV specials, the pub and taking it easy. Go on, you deserve it. Also, listen out for a treat of an email involving an enthusiastic approach to a school talent show. Now go get yourself another sherry, it's Christmas. Oh,...

Episode 127: A nut without the sack

12/24/2018
More
What better way to usher in Christmas than with plenty of chat about dead people that have dedicated their bodies to science? That's right, Pete has been to the Body Worlds exhibition, brainchild of the controversial Dr Gunther von Hagens. It's not for the squeamish. In other more traditional fare, we discuss Christmas traditions, including Pete spending quite a depressing amount of Christmas Day alone (boo hoo), followed by near-death experiences, and finally crop circles with one of the...

Episode 126: Giving yourself a mountain to climb

12/20/2018

Hello to you all! You're very welcome in the Land of Luke and Pete. If you do visit us, expect to experience tales of a remarkable man climbing a huge rock, and the following: - Monkeys stealing crisps - Weird flavours of ice cream - Raw chicken - Things your mum steals from work ...and that's just one email. Elsewhere, there's discontinued food products, more on porn star Ben Dover and much, much more. Don't sleep on it. Talk to us: hello@lukeandpeteshow.com ***Please take the time...

Episode 125: Is that a man inside there?

12/17/2018
More
Greetings Luke and Peters! We're back, you literally can't get rid of us. This time around, among other things, we hear about a robot presented to a robotics expo that turned out to be not quite as it seemed, we marvel and worry simultaneously about the new social points system in China, and we obviously hear from you guys, including a listener who smashed his own face in and was rescued by a man in an anorak called Lucky Pete. No, not that one. We said 'lucky'. Get in touch:...

Episode 124: Don't eat the yellow snow

12/13/2018
More
Pete has learnt that pollution is so bad in China that it's apparently turning the snow yellow. Meanwhile, Luke is lucky to be here after running a road race in temperatures as low as -22C. What a cold start to this week's episode! And, with the help of you lovely listeners, our two eponymous anti-heroes also talk about school talent shows, internet criticism, and bogeys. Yes, bogeys. Deal with it. To tell us your best weather stories, or anything else for that matter:...

Episode 123: Errol Flynn's duck centipede

12/10/2018
More
It's Monday! But don't despair, because Luke and Pete have got your back. We'll stick with you your whole commute through (providing it's not longer than about 30 minutes), and regale you with tales of the first ever traffic lights, PETA having a bit of a mare, and Pete's recent trip to Cluj. This episode also features a genuinely stunning story about the great Errol Flynn, involving ducks, pork and a long piece of string. Don't miss it. And also please don't try it. We would love to hear...

Episode 122: Baked bean pizzas and Irn Bru chew bars

12/6/2018

Hello everyone, and happy Thursday! The Luke and The Pete are back in the saddle and running the rule over yet more unplanned nonsense, including discontinued foodstuffs, Pete's first ever podcast, and spotting Eddie Izzard on the tube. Elsewhere, there's another visit to North Sentinel Island (figuratively speaking, it's too dangerous to go there in person, as someone found out last week), Neil Young and Bob Dylan team up, and we hear from a very disgruntled listener... To join forces...

Episode 121: Finders Keepers

How much money would you find on the street and keep? Pete found 50p once and it changed his life. For a bit. Listen in to hear more on that particular story (which kept the boy Donny in milk at school for at least a week) on your all-new Luke and Pete Show. We also run the rule over more parental situations, including a our first ever grandparental lie, there's art theft, there's Bob Mortimer, and there's a return for the Weetagang.

Episode 120: Pete on a bus shelter

11/29/2018
More
It happened. Pete was once on the side of a bus shelter and it was on a bad hair day as well. Nightmare. In his line of work, presentation is everything. Tune in to hear more. Elsewhere in this episode, we lament the passing of the great Stan Lee, we hear an incredible story about a drive-by blowdart attack in the middle of nowhere, and Luke lifts the lid on what it was like to grow up the grandson of a bakery magnate. Ever been shot by a blowdart? Let us know:...

Episode 119: Do you want salt and vinegar?

11/26/2018

The terrible twosome are back in the habit, and this time around they're talking about U-Boats and their toilets (quite unreliable, apparently), as well as the best fish n chip shops around, paintballing and the dangers within it, and cricket. There's also a revisiting of the great Cosmo and Dibs debacle courtesy of a listener, and Pete 'Donny' Donaldson dishes out some advice. You have been warned. Got a fish n chip shop worth shouting about? Email us: hello@lukeandpeteshow.com ***Please...

Episode 118: Turtle Power

11/22/2018
More
Luke once made up an impromptu dance to Partners in Kryme's seminal 1990 classic Turtle Power at a school disco with his mate John. There was absolutely no reason for it to happen. Meanwhile, Pete's been wandering around London looking for fences made from World War II stretchers - they're everywhere apparently. Elsewhere on this episode there's time for near death experiences, the cleaning of a cat's anal glands, Pete's one man Bread-inspired stage show, and much, much more. Got something...

Episode 117: Return of the eight year old millionaire

11/19/2018
More
Pete learns of Luke's exploits as a child involving trying to pull a fast one over the Tooth Fairy, and Pete reminds us all of his crush on Samantha Fox as an eight year old. There's also time to praise Peter Jackson's truly remarkable They Shall Not Grow Old, and following that we go from the sublime to the ridiculous as a listener tells us all about Lucozade flavoured Calippos. Unreal. To tell us about the time you pretended to be someone else (that'll make sense when you listen), it's...

Episode 116: Pete Assange

11/15/2018
More
Pete has decided he'd quite like to visit the Japanese embassy, which is pretty handy as he's recently been cordially invited. Better pack the Ferrero Rocher. More details to follow on later episodes (hopefully), but Luke is keen to see him move in there permanently, preferably with the odd visit from Nigel Farage. During this episode we also hear from Stewie Donaldson and his new best mate Crypto Dave (!), a woman actually carries out an urban myth, and we hear about a truly rare beast - a...
