217: Food, flying and false teeth with Daniel Varani

Ep. 217

Is booze really stronger when you're on a flight? What did Diana Ross allegedly try to smuggle on Concorde? And is it ever OK to put cheddar in a spaghetti carbonara? Answering all these questions is one of our favourite people - it's Daniel Varani! 


He tells us all about his 15 years working as an air steward, from the weird things passengers leave on their food trays to dealing with people trying to join the mile-high club. Then we chat about Daniel's experience of growing up in London with Italian parents, and how food helped keep him connected to his mum in lockdown. He reveals his authentic bolognese recipe, and blows our minds by sharing the proper way to put parmesan on pasta. We finish off with some Scummy Mummy Confessions, including one from our very own Godfather. 


Daniel's brilliant book, Danny's Kitchen, is available now. You can follow him on Instagram @dannyskitchen_hove.

Christmas Special: A Tale of Two Bumholes

Ep. 218
Ho ho ho! The gang's all here for this year's festive episode as we are joined by Nurse Jessie, Sam Pamphilon and Steve Hill! Is Sam divorced yet? Has Nurse Jessie got a new job? Why are Ellie and James Bond responsible for Steve getting corona? And is it true that we all have two sphincters? Tune in to find out!We cover a host of highbrow topics from how men go to the toilet to when it's OK to fart in front of a new lover. Ham Review almost ends in a fistfight, and Sam tells a lovely Christmassy story about a Coke Zero bottle full of piss. Finally, as a special treat, The Accent Game returns.NB: Unfortunately there were some technical issues with this recording -some gremlins got in and made parts of the podcast sound all roboty. So we had to delete some bits, such as Sam's chat about what he's been up to (a new baby and a new telly show!), Jessie's gift swap (we got her some feminine hygiene wash!), and the boys' turn at the Accent Game (probably for the best.) But there's arguably more than enough to listen to here anyway...Thank you so much to Laylo Wines for fuelling this podcast with their delicious box wines.
