The Conversation Hat Podcast - Episode 17

[soundcloud url="" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /] In this episode we are joined by Shorty, who famously declares that he is not a Huguenot... Whatever that means...

We discuss our worst dreams, favourite childhood sweets, awful films and whether or not Satan has a surname. Liam takes on an entire musical genre from the 80's with a musical piece entitled Crappy Darkwave Band. I wonder which genre...

Shorty ====================================

There's a good few minutes of Spice Girl discussion in this episode, if you feel like you might want to refresh your memory a bit on the various Mels then grab yourself something from their back catalogue. Not that there's a current catalogue...


As mentioned, the film Sucker Punch was underwhelming at best. The soundtrack, however, was #amazeballs. Re-sampled Queen riffs in hip-hop, and cinematic renditions of White Rabbit? Yes please, on repeat, forever. Great score. Awful film.


Ben firmly believes that 2008's Funny Games is the worst film, ever. You can judge that for yourselves, but don't blame us if you can't deal. Eggs...


Llamas with Hats, by YouTuber FilmCow, is one of the funniest and oddest animations on the internet. There's about 12 episodes which you can find on his channel, which only get darker as you watch. Fun fact, Liam thinks he does a spot-on "Caaaaaarl!"
