A weird solo episode from Nick, this one. Hope you enjoy it!
Nick intends for this to be a very quick episode, but reckons without his own distracting record collection, and James educates Nick about the horrors of The Water Babies.
Also, you can tell a lot about a person based on how they say “garage”. And people drank young where James is from.
I mean come on…
Or try this:
“Fait Accompli” by Curve…
We’re finally back! This week, Nick is worried about genitals, and James is all about Periscope, and both of them prefer Tangled to Frozen, and tell you why.
No show-notes this week… normal service will hopefully be resumed once Nick’s life stabilises a little – chyuh yeah as if huh?
A very special episode of 2 Grown Men, with only 1.1 Grown Men attending.
Introducing Maximum Jake!
Alternate title: “We’re living in an Alan Bennett dystopia”
The conceit in this episode is that we’re trying to make a trailer. And we kind of were, but it’s possible that we’re not that good at making trailers.
We’re pretty good at talking though, so there’s that.
James and Nick talk about nostalgia, pop music, consent, Mel and Kim, and the murder of squirrels.
