This week we're all about an irrational hatred for snooker player Jimmy White, as well as Weekly Weird Wupdates about being forced to drink pee at work for being bold and wondering whether or not we should be teaching children about orgasms. What a world we live in. We also take a look back at this week through the years in news and Matt goes digging around for ways to make money through fetishes on the internet. It's not as easy as you might think. As always thanks for listening, sharing...

This week we got lazy twice - first we thought of a topic to talk about a week after it happened, instead of planning ahead. Then instead of a particular date or event we just thought we'd see what happened on Hallowe'en every year. It's actually a lot of work being this lazy. In our Weekly Weird Wupdates this week we have things about Saudi poo orgies and fetishes - it's a good one. Plus in Back to the Woocher we get an update on the Purple Penguins situation from last week. Joy. As...

This week we're looking back to August 1997 when Princess Diana was tragically killed during a chase from paparazzi in Paris. Whether or not you think there's a conspiracy surrounding her death or not, there's no denying that the entire world was distracted by it. So what other news was going on in the world when that happened. And in our Weekly Weird Wupdates we have purple penguins and naked penis biting - what a world we live in! As always thanks for listening, sharing and all that...

Matt has a brother who was born with extra bones and stuff because his mother was pregnant during the Chernobyl disaster. Either that or she microwaved his baby bottles instead of just using some hot water. Whatever the reason, the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986 is our topic of discussion in Weekly Was Wupdates this week. As always thanks for listening, sharing and all that other good stuff, we'll catch you again next week. Feel free to get in touch with the usual means or leave a comment...

We've both been to Euro Disney, and had completely different experiences, but back in 1955 when Disneyland opened its doors for the very first time, the world watched as history was happening before their very eyes. So there must have been some news that was lost around that. That's what we're looking at this week, along with the usual Weekly Weird Wupdates.

Right, so we're not the biggest sports fans on this here podcast, but when we were kids we remember the world cup of 1990 - because we'd never made it to a world cup before - so it was a big one. Then when goal keeper Packie Bonner saved a penalty against Romania, the country collectively shit a kitten with excitement - so there was obviously some news happening in the world that we missed out on then - that's what we're looking at this week. As always thanks for listening, sharing and all...

Remember when OJ Simpson was found not guilty of killing those people even though he totally killed those people? In what is probably still one of the most dividing of topics in recent times, this racially charged murder trial captured the attention of the world. So it's likely that some other news was going on at the time that we missed out on - that's what we're looking at this week.
