THE CONVERSATION HAT PODCAST – SE3EP13, ft Ben's Dad

Ben's Dad makes his seasonal return to The Conversation Hat Podcast to chat about lightsabers, crappy job interview questions and much more besides. Ben's Dad doesn't want to plug anything, he just likes having a chat.

====================================

SHOW NOTES

As briefly touched-upon in the podcast, lightsabers in the Star Wars franchise are powered by Kyber Crystals which also determine the colour of the blade. The crystals are harvested by young Jedi and the process turns the crystal to a specific colour. Sith and Dark-Side users, rather than harvesting the crystals in the "proper" way, will dominate them which turns the colour to red - hence all the evil dudes having red swords. You can read more about Kyber Crystals and much, much more Star Wars lore, (there's lots), over on Wookiepedia.

For music fans, we're updating the way our Patreon rewards work slightly - specifically the free music downloads. Anyone and everyone will now be able to listen to music from the show, (on SoundCloud, for example), but downloads will remain a patron-only reward. Log in to Patreon to learn how to access your downloads.

THE CONVERSATION HAT PODCAST – Se3ep7, ft Roman

Irregular guest Roman Armstrong joins Liam & Ben for the first time in Season 3 to discuss our favourite scents and play a rousing round of Getting To Know You!

This episode features the sketch Detective Bastard, written by Liam & Laura, voiced by Ben, with music by Liam.

====================================

SHOW NOTES

This episode went out a few weeks earlier than it should have - we thought, rather than retracting and fussing we'd just embrace the mistake and have an episode released at a weird time! For those interested, this should have been episode 8 and would have been released to the public on June 24th. Oh well!

We discuss gender equality in Dr Who, (because we're current), clowns, sharks, clown-sharks, and whaling on the moon.

====================================

SHOW NOTES

Si mentioned the Gilbert O'Sullivan song, Alone Again (Naturally), in our conversation about songs that bring a tear to his eye. Interestingly, this track was sampled heavily by rapper Biz Markie and caused one of the first big court cases around copyright infringement through sampling. You can have a listen to the sampled elements on Who Sampled.

In other news: CLOWN SHARKS! The rap-rock sections really sound like Beastie Boys, huh?

When asked, Holly was most surprised by Bioshock - a franchise which Liam & Laura have enjoyed in-depth, a few times over. Bioshock is a lore-rich franchise, taking place in an under-water dystopian ruin. We highly recommend Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite.

If you're interested in some of the other titles we discussed, please see the following links: Minecraft; Dance Dance Revolution (DDR);

Featuring new sketch, the USS Really Big Ship, written by Liam, featuring him, Si and Ben.

====================================

Here's a few things we discussed today, should you choose to further research these topical issues.

It might be a bit messed-up to suggest we watch some Disney, given the context in which we discussed them today, but screw it! ... Or, don't!... Anyway... We pretty much covered all the bases with this film, but who do you like? Meg? Hercules? Hades? ... PHIL!?

We briefly dabbled in numbers today, but if you feel like you need more numbers in your life then why not check out this simple guide to Numerology?

[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/279223845" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /] This week's guest is singer and guitarist of Cambridge rock band Too Cool Kid, Jay Plent. You can, (and should), check out Too Cool Kid and download their entire repertoire from BandCamp, or get news and that from their Facebook page.

In this episode we talk about fighting schoolchildren, our spirit animals and whether we'd prefer to be a werewolf, vampire, or a zombie. Included are a sketch titled Armageddon, and the song King Werewolf.

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

First off, What We Do In The Shadows is a mockumentary film featuring some of the chaps from Flight Of The Concords. A household of vampires are interviewed about attempt to integrate in society and deal with the everyday trials and tribulations of being a vampire.

When we spoke about zombie movies, we accidentally referred to World War Z as something else... Whoops... The book version of World War Z is a series of mini stories about a zombie out-break and what different people do to combat it or survive around the world. The film version puts Brad Pitt in the role of all the people, and awkwardly throws him around the planet with little information given as to why...

The Conversation Hat Podcast - Episode 15

[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/277198548" 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.
