Do The Right Thing

Series 7, Episode 9 (Rachel Fairburn & Neil Edmond)

Season 7, Ep. 9

Rachel Fairburn and Neil Edmond are the perfect guests for a show that considers runaway horses, meeting strangers from the internet in real life, unwanted matchmaking, secret tattoos and aggressively smelly bosses.

  • 1. NOT A NEW EPISODE but... here's Margaret's podcast Crushed!

    48:43
    Hello!This isn't a new episode of Do The Right Thing (sob!) but we thought you might like to sample Margaret's new(ish) podcast Crushed! - and in particular the latest episode in which she chats to Danielle about her crushes and unrequited loves in all their intense and embarrassing glory. Within there is plenty of discussion of why stand ups make terrible boyfriends, which two qualities you'd have to have to date Danielle, and some frankly filthy discussion of the hottest star of Red Dwarf - Chris Barrie. Yes, you read that right. Chris Barrie. If you like it then why not subscribe to the show by searching for 'Crushed by Margaret Cabourn-Smith' wherever you usually do that sort of thing.

Stories of romance, success and bravery are not included. Instead of writing about how fun and exciting the life of a comedian is, he decided to tell the truth.Join Michael as he tries hard to control his fury at absolutely everything in this selection of 14 of his favourite arguments (but probably not yours) from his archive, plus the brand-new short story Mister Err Gets Blocked.Please go to https://gofasterstripe.com/pigs for more information and to join the LIVE LAUNCH next Monday 8th November.
