Indiana Jones and the Crunchy Nut Clusters

6/26/2022
A long weekend at the coast and what do we do? Aside from recreating the iconic scene from Top Gun...with a frisbee...we discuss the Jurassic Park franchise and what Indiana could add to it - or maybe not. The kids also gatecrash, demand a second trip to the arcade and have to settle for the Evercade instead.

2/18/2022

New Dog Old Shiznits

9/25/2021
When you've got a dog - and let's face it, who hasn't these days? - then you've got to take it for a walk. So Andy and Spence roam around a country estate like they own it, or rather like Trev and Simon would, and chat about an Atari 2600, an Evercade, a Pinter and homebrew in general, and Black Widow. Lots to enjoy, lots to digest, and many goals - short, medium and long term to report back on in future podcasts. So dive right in. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/soh/message

Masters of the Forza-verse

8/26/2021
He's only gone and done it. After threatening to get an XBox for ages, Andy unleashes his new Series S on the world and Spence joins him for a Forza Horizon 4 convoy. Now you can join them too. Listen along as they drive around the British countryside in classic cars, smashing through walls and trees and failing to win races because they're too distracted chatting about He-Man, the merits of Masters of the Universe: Revelation and their other favourite TV Shows that each other have never...

Willow Watching

7/20/2021
As the restrictions lift and the sun is out, what better way to celebrate than to pretend it's still lockdown, or at best a rainy Sunday afternoon in 90s. Join Andy, Spence and Dave from Geeky Guys for another GroupWatch - this time of 80s classic fantasy movie Willow starring Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer. Fire up your Disney Plus, listen for the countdown and watch along with us. Pay particular attention to the moment Dave is stripped of his geek credentials for getting Batman wrong! ---...

Kids Takeover

6/25/2021
A seaside holiday. A time to relax. A time to unwind. Or a time to have the kids dictate everything? Yep, they've been threatening it for a while but the Soldiers of Hell mini-mes get very involved in this one. Join us on the North Yorkshire coast to discuss arguably the greatest movie ever made in Jaws. We also touch on Spielberg's 2nd best monster movie Jurassic Park. And the kids take us down a familiar Marvel path with added e numbers and mermaids for good measure. Get on those...

Eurovision Beer Contest

5/24/2021
Late May, and it's like the lockdown roadmap had one eye on the Eurovision calendar! So it was round to Andy's for a Super Saturday full of hoppy, malty, brewed goodness. If we can't win a song contest, maybe we can win something else. Last year it was Bond. This year it was beers. Stay tuned to the end of the episode to find out what next year's alternative contest will (might) be! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/soh/message

Sculpture Park

4/20/2021
No longer restricted to recording content remotely, Andy and Spence meet up in a massive park; the Yorkshire Sculpture Park no less. Initially confused by the fact we hadn't skydived on to the undulating terrain, and equally baffled by not having to lay down a marker to decide which direction to go, they soon get used to being out an about again. That is until they stumble across a massive cockrill. Yes, that's cockrill. Join them as they wander from place to place, remember that it takes...

Gaming Dads: pt 2

2/26/2021
3 years ago we released an episode called Gaming Dads, all about our exploits of trying to maintain a semblance of youth whist actually raising the youth of today. Spin on over a thousand days and we invite 2 more middle aged gamers to the party, Simon and Matt, to discuss modern multi-platform gaming, its future and our decrepit crab hands within it. Simon even wants to start a Gaming Dads Twitch channel that he's convinced will find an audience. We're not so sure. Prove us wrong, or at the...

Grudge Match

Predator - Batman - Judge Dredd - The perfect smackdown to replicate in a Rock Paper Scissors type game. But it's not the only grudge match discuss on the episode.

SAW Christmas

12/20/2020
aka Alan Partridge. Nothing says Christmas nostalgia like Stock Aitken and Waterman. Although it seems that their Christmas output is limited. But that doesn't stop Spence trying to put together the ultimate SAW Christmas playlist. Yes it might end up being contrived, but it's 100% pop perfection. Join Andy and Spence on their walk through a country park and hear them decend in to jokes good/bad enough to make their kids cringe; just like the tunes on Andy's Alan Partridge playlist. --- Send...

12/12/2020
AKA Brian May and Bruce Forsyth. Here's a new one straight from the Cassette Tape archive: a Christmas episode that originally aired on 10th December 2001. Who knew we'd still be taking about the same things 2 decades later? Bond - check. Batman - check. Favourite Christmas song - check. Maybe we've progressed a bit from porn and fart jokes. But in terms of being progressive, how about giving away hundreds of tampons without any irony? Sit back with a Fox Mulder wine and imagine turning on...
