Recorded backstage at The Junction, Cambridge (that's why it's all reverbie)
You can find out more about Tony and his tour schedule on his website. His shows are intensely weird, we highly recommend them
This episode features the Market Research sketch, written band performed by Ben & Liam.
Here's a clip of Tony in action, from 2011. GOK WAN!
Following our discussion on the worst baby names, we decided to take a look at the most popular names for children born this year. Liam is aghast to learn that his is the most popular name for boys this year.
