    Episode 7 — Cultural bias

    Found this extremely interesting. It always pisses me off when business leaders are treated as gurus, who have special powers. There's never an admittance of the crucial part that luck plays. Donald Trump, in particular, why should anyone listen to his opinions on The Apprentice? All he knows is how to inherit several millions and buy buildings. He's got the intellect of a bowl of porridge. Anyway, this also kind of feeds in to what I understand to be the Chinese view of history. They've never bought into this bias. My sketchy knowledge of it seems to be that individual success is not seen as heroic. Much better to be a faceless bureaucrat working for the good of all.

    Episode 148 — Wipeout!

    Up there with my favourite episodes ever. Man alive. The poems. Wipeout. The Land Vaginnies. The faked, faked anger at the girlfriend's death. All too good. Andy Daly is up there with Peter Cook for me, nowadays. Absolute genius.
  3. I've joined up and registered just to to say that, I really enjoyed the challenge. I don't know if the best men won, but a) I don't think that's important. Listen to whichever one you want the contest worked completely on its own terms. (That said, for all the new podcasts and jokes I've heard the most entertaining part of the whole thing was Besser and the legendary Scottabott swapping opinions on comedy)
