[soundcloud url="" params="color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="166" iframe="true" /] Today's guest and mediator-of-the-inevitable-craziness is Kay Blayney. Kay is a host on Cambridge 105, as well as working in various arts-related and education positions. We discuss our ideal celebrity, built from other celebrities' body parts; what laws we would enact should we suddenly rise to power; and whether or not you yawn in your sleep.

Here are some things we spoke about in this episode...

Liam chose to incorporate singer and actor Danny Kaye into his Celebrity-Frankenstein. You can find a copy of the original Secret Life Of Walter Mitty movie, or indeed anything else by Danny Kaye, with this link.

Should you fancy listening to a duck-related song which isn't a bit segregatie and unpleasant, here you go:

Ben's dinner party guest was Charlie Brooker who created amongst other things, Black Mirror - a dark exploration of technology and societal norms. Sometimes humorous, and always deeply intriguing. You can get get a hold of seasons 1 & 2 with this link right here, and keep an eye on Channel 4 for new episodes.


Lastly, why not grab a copy of Carry On Screaming and check out the weird zombie-werewolf-Frankenstein things that are Oddbod and Oddbod Jr, (they're both Homo Gargantuoso, apparently). We're reliably informed that this is the least bawdy and offensive of all Carry On films, so it's got that going for it. Grab a copy with this link here.
