Around The World In 80 Podcasts Podcast

Three quite daring explorers are circling the globe in 80 episodes, following the path of fictional sourpuss Phileas Fogg in the poorly written novel Around the World in 80 Days. Join them as they get to know a different destination each week whilst delivering a drawn out and mostly damning book review.

79. London... One Last Time
It’s time to finish this mother! Welcome to the last chapter of Around The World In 80 Days. We won’t spoil anything here, other than to say two dogs are dead and no-one seems to care and we’re all excited for the sequel Forsooth & Mudge: The Iceboat Chronicles. After a climactic Book Club, where we also reflect on how our lives have changed during the three and a half years we’ve spent reading this book, it’s onto Local Life and a vital College Contest where Ben and Loz continue their fight for second-plac...

78. City of Westminster
The city within a city! That's right, the end is near and this week we head to Westminster, where Phileas Fogg's pals are waiting in the Reform Club to see if he will win his wager. What ensues is one of the most dramatic passages in literary history as the seconds tick down to Fogg's deadline. There's also a taste of Local Life before a classic College Contest. Enjoy!...

77. London, again?
Happy Christmas! The hard yards have been put in, the finishing post in sight, as the chaps return one final time for the last four episodes of what has been a long, long, long audio-road. It's yet another belter as Nick tells tales of a merry Loz, Ben hosts a tough quiz made for 7 year olds and crucially, we find out big news for an unusually emotional Phileas Fogg! Boy it is brill to be back....


76. London, again!
London! The Big Smoke! The Large City! That's right, the guys are back where it all began. Book Club, Local Life and College Contest are all absolute crackers, but what's that faint humming noise? That's the occasional aeroplane flying over Ben's garden shed which was not adequately soundproofed as Ben doesn't own as many shirts as Loz. More of a boots man. Boots for every occasion. The guy loves boots....

75. Prison Escapes Special
IT’S ALL GONE WRONG. Fogg’s in the clink and time is running out. He will surely be ruined unless…he escapes! Or he’s let out. He’s just let out. We hear all about Fogg’s release, and an incredible double punch, in Book Club, and then learn about some real prison escapes in an alarming Local Life. If you see Skullcracker, do let the police know. Then it’s quizzing time in College Contest, with a crucial Ben vs Loz thriller....

74. Liverpool
This week sees the gang return to England in a shed-recorded, barn-stormer of an episode. We're into the thick of the drama now and I shan't give anything away, but just to tease you - exactly what you might predict happens, happens. Meanwhile, Nick and Ben rate The Beatles, while Loz laments his careless treatment of his redundant body parts....
