TV Cream’s second podcast is now available to download. It’s 70MB and lasts around 45 minutes.
Already you can see that heed has been paid to one of the main observations concerning the first podcast. That’s right. The running time has been brutally scythed by SIX MINUTES. In climates like these, everyone’s got to make cuts, and TV Cream’s podcast department* is no exception.
The theme of the podcast is Christmas. As such the show comes from a suitably seasonal location, and, not uncoincidentally, also features suitably seasonal features.
Among the sultana-shaped items protuding on aural sticks from this mpeg-encoded christingle are:
– an investigation into what makes the perfect Christmas song. SPOILER: it isn’t Fairytale of New York.
– a review of some correspondence received about the previous podcast, and a listen to some of your suggestions for theme sandwiches.
– a salute to Val Doonican and his festive television spectaculars.
– another attempt to make the facts amazing conceit work as a quiz.
There are also numerous guest appearances from the voices of familiar celebrities, though not like the B-side of Do They Know It’s Christmas, and last but not least a musical contribution from an inimitable personality – and you should try imitating him! Here is a clue to their identity.
*no such department exists.
