    Bloody hell this is long

  2. Yes, it certainly is! We definitely tried to cram too much in but besides Tron, I don’t think any of it could really have been held back until #98. Oh well, consider it a bumper New Years special!

    Normal duration should return with #98 (in large part to the fact we’ll likely be back to recording on a Monday evening rather than a Sunday afternoon!)

  3. Mister M says:

    I Do quite like the longer podcasts you do to the shorter ones (Good job youre not going weekly for who series six), And when the podcast is longer you all seem to be funnier!

  4. It is certainly true that, when we tried to do two podcasts in an evening, we’d just be concentrating on getting it all done. That did leave less time for relaxing and messing around! That’s part of the reason why I’d prefer not to try to go ‘weekly’ again!
