Hadn't heard of this one - hope it's worth checking out.

Did she really pose for Playboy or was that a rumour?


It wasn't a rumour.  I think every lad who knew her at least sneaked a peek.  I may possibly could maybe have done so myself.

Wow!

What a crazy rumour to spread about someone but even crazier that it was true.

Actually now that I think of it there's another podcast on Spotify called Mens Rea that looks at a lot of Irish crime. They have a few good ones on Captain Moonlight (?), Catherine Nevin and that woman who tried to hire a hitman online.

Thanks for the heads-up! I'll have a listen.

Agreed.  It truly is one of the best podcasts out there.  The Cuban Missile Crisis episode was an absolute nail-biter, even though, of course, we know the outcome.  That said, the way he describes the resolution is a little bit more nuanced than the way I'd heard it, though I have to admit my grasp on history isn't all THAT good.

I still have that one to get to. For me Ghosts of the Ostenfront and Blueprints for Armageddon are the best serials. I wish that he talked mor about the Macedonian front, since that is a very important part thats been memory holed in recent times.

Here’s an individual podcast episode I enjoyed very much, where we got to hear Stewart Lee discuss his comedy, and very much stepping away from the smug, arrogant, know-it-all, liberal elite stage character.

He comes across as very chilled and likeable chap, and it’s a great discussion on the history of comedy and his part in it. It’s very good.

Thanks! I really like Stewart Lee. I met him and chatted to him after one of his shows. He was indeed very approachable, friendly and down - to - earth: The stage persona is purely for comedy reasons, and it works.

Spotify have the first 3 series of Just A Minute available there a quite a few episodes missing but it is interesting to see how the programme evolved from it's origins `when compared to the currant series without Nicholas Parsons
