s5e4 - Basil Brush v Badger: Dawn of Puppets

12/24/2018
More
It's Christmas so let's go novelty for this episode. After the broodiness of Batman and the angst of Angel, where better in contrast to go than the puppetry of messrs Basil and Badger; kings of kids TV. Sort of. Spence is not convinced by this curveball that Andy has thrown him in the battle of the pre-millenial heroes. But who cares? Grab yourself a novelty ale and lets just go with it!

s5e3 - Angel v Fox Mulder: Hunks of Truth

11/26/2018
More
Some heroes choose themselves; this month's being two them. Yes we know it's hard to believe it but some people used to say we looked like the two Davids Boreanaz and Duchovny. We're talking back in 1999 though. But it's the truth and just like Fox Mulder we're hoping to get the truth out there. So treat yourself to a listen to this month's episode and find out how we've been dining out on these two hunks (metaphorically obviously) for the last 19 years and whether Angel's brow can beat...

s5e2 - Batman v James Bond: Dawn of Continuity

10/25/2018
More
Who would you rather be? Batman or James Bond? Neither you say? Well which version of each character are you talking about? Or do you think there is only one version of each character on film in one continuous story? So many questions, but we think that Lego Batman might have this all worked out. In this episode of the latest series we explore our two favourite characters of all time and in particular the continuity of their movies and whether we learn any worthy traits from them in the...

s5e1 - He-Man v Superman: Pants of Injustice

9/25/2018

Welcome to Season 5 of the Soldiers of Hell podcast. We're suffering from a freak strain of the millennium bug where everything we do seems to send us back to 1999 or earlier. Join us each month as we recruit a mentor with the right skills to send us back to the future. We'll choose 2 pop culture icons and by the end of each episode we'll learn whose retro talents are as relevant today as they were in the 20th century. Only then will they have what it takes to be declared as Soldiers of...

Chomp on This! Series 5 prequel

8/24/2018
More
This is the last episode before we dust down the format of the podcast so there's just time to discuss Jason Statham dusting down a shark in The Meg as well as other shark tales (Shark Tales not included). We also visit the Edinburgh Fringe festival, Bluedot festival and grab a soundbite with Robert Crais at his book signing. It's been a busy summer so sit back and enjoy a bit more waffle before our inevitable reboot.

BONUS - Andy'll Fix It

8/17/2018
More
Back in our old radio show days Spence used to set Andy challenges that he would have to complete via phone in. Think of it like a cross between Challenge Anneka and a remote Taskmaster with nobody to compete against by himself. Actually, as the theme tune to the feature suggests, it was more like You Bet which would be a lot more appropriate than comparing Andy to another sort of fix it person. We mean the unsavoury one; not Bob the Builder. Anyway, in these two editions from the Soldiers...

Bonus - The Lost Episode

8/10/2018
More
In 2007 an episode of the Soldiers of Hell was lost down the back of the sofa. Like an old episode of Dr Who we've dusted it off and made it available again to you; our lovely listeners. It includes a new intro regarding our increasingly confusing show name and the topics discussed in the show were submitted by the public. It's something we'd like to bring back with phone ins on Anchor. Why not drop us a message in readiness for series 5 which we're working on now?

s4e12 - From Drinking Tea to Simon Bull & Coward

7/31/2018
More
In the latest episode of the Soldiers of Hell show, Spence takes a different walk home, taking the opportunity to dodge some noisy youths but still hang out with a group of birds. This is all leads to the opportunity for Andy to rake over old European coals – and for once this has nothing to do with Brexit. It is the catalyst for a joined up story that includes a cameo from Peter Marshall and The Lomos, which of course links to Transatlantic Smash, and back to Andy again via his roles in...

s4e11 - From 6-a-side Football to Gazza

6/24/2018
More
With the Russia World Cup 2018 on, what better way to stay fit than take inspiration from people at the peak of their powers and pretend you were once good at football by taking up 6-a-side again. In this episode we learn what muscle Spence has pulled and why Andy won't massage it. We also learn what past-time Andy will be taking part in to get his butt cheeks in shape. Does Andy care more about Eurovision than the World Cup? You'll have to stay tuned to find out - and why Gazza is our...

S5e6 - Reading Novels/Robert Crais

6/16/2018

"Crais-y for books" This one is a literary ramble about novels, comic books, and in particular one series: The Elvis Cole and Joe Pike books by Robert Crais (although Bond and Batman obviously get a mention too). We also touch on the novels Armada and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and therefore end up in movie territory territory again. If you want to hear Andy threaten his marriage with comedy anecdotes - this one is for you. And why not talk about shelving solutions whilst we're at...

In 2007, an episode of the Soldiers of Hell disappeared into a black hole. Now you can join a younger Andy and Spence in this dusty old recording like a lost Doctor Who episode on VHS. Listen as they answer listener submitted questions. Proof that even back then there were at least 2 people in the world who listened to them chat on the internet.
