We are back with the WOWS Podcast after a 4 year break!
Tag Archives: yorkshire
After a 4 year hiatus (that’s what it was, we didn’t split up like INSERT BOY/GIRL BAND HERE) the WOWS Podcast presented by myself (Jimbo) and Fisher (not myself) will be back wasting more webspace and more of your time (should you choose to listen) very soon. Here’s everything you need to not really know about our triumphant return.
Where did you go?
I’d like to say that we went to live in some mountains in Malaysia, met a podcasting Jedi called Yoga (also a brand of microphone) who taught us a unique set of skills to turn us into the best podcasters in the Western Hemisphere, but actually we both just got busy with work, getting married, moving houses and most recently for me, having a baby. I’d like to take the credit but it was actually my wife who did 95% of that last bit.
Why return now?
We want to
spend less time with our wives reignite our creative flair. We feel like we have a lot to offer the world. Take Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, they are both pretty topical and widely talked about, but Fisher and I both have better hair cuts, more natural chemistry and I think we could trade even better insults with each other. Admittedly we don’t have the nuclear capabilility to reach America but we have upgraded our podcasting system and we think that with some effort we could break America but not in the same way Kim Jong-un wants to. Before we attempt to break America we are just going to send some podcasts over Japan first, just as a warm up.
What can we expect?
A bloody good podcast. Topical with a side order of wit. Unfortunately there could be the occasional “dad joke” now I have the license. While we want to retain some of the qualities that made episodes 1-9 a roaring success with at least over 12 listens per episode (I personally listened 3 times they were that good) we are also going to introduce some new regular features and a different show theme per episode. If you would like to suggest a theme we are happy to consider, 4 years ago we were bombarded with requests for a “silent” themed episode.
When will the first new podcast be?
When I last spoke to Fisher we agreed we would get to work when he has finished cricket. I think he has finished now so as soon as I’ve finished my tea we’ll make a start.
We will meet up and plan the podcast on a Monday, record the podcast on Tuesday, we’ll be making love on Wednesday, and on Thursday and Friday and Saturday so we’ll probably release the podcast on Sunday. If Craig David can come back from the showbiz wilderness than so can we.
Being serious now, we’d like to release a new episode every 2 weeks on a Wednesday/Thursday evening. There’s no Eastenders on a Wednesday so there’s a potential audience we can tap into there.
Where can I keep up to date with all this exciting new podcasting?
I knew you would ask that. You can keep an eye on the Waste Of Webspace website (right here) we usually post something every 2-4 years so you’ll never have to wait too long for an update.
Or there’s our twitter @WasteOfWebspace which we use so often that we forgot the password to it. There’s also a Facebook page which I only remembered existed recently.
Or our personal accounts where you can read my tweets about baby poo and wheelie bin collection dates or Fishers cricket success and late, over crowded trains.
In the mean time check out the original WOWS Podcast episodes 1-9 which are now so out of date that a lot of the celebrities we talk about in them have now died or are in prison. So I suppose we are winning because that didn’t happen to us in our 4 year absence.
Jimbo & Fisher are back with Episode 9 and as Danny Dyer is the new landlord of the Queen Vic on Eastenders they decide to go to the pub for this episode. No caterpillars or cats were harmed during the recording of this podcast but the sport Snooker probably was harmed.
Jimbo & Fisher are back with another episode of the WOWS Podcast. This week Jimbo and Fisher discuss the Royal Baby, Wonga Vs The Church, Penis Competitions and they also run a special ‘Agony Aunt section’ helping the loyal listeners with their everyday problems. Enjoy and please tweet us at www.twitter.com/WasteOfWebSpace
We apologise in advance for the overuse of the word ‘penis’ in this episode.
Here is the first WOWS Poll. The WOWS Poll is a chance for you to have your say in important topics such as world politics, global warming, the economy, ethics and much more.
North Korea has recently been scaring the pants off the rest of the World. It has been threatening to take nuclear action against the US and South Korea. I suppose when you look at it like that the North Koreans could effectively solve two of the Worlds biggest problems – Gangnam Style and Justin Beiber (he is actually Canadian but oh well). That aside the world is still worried about the threat of a nuclear attack. Many sources have claimed that North Korea don’t have the technology to reach the US with a nuclear missile and that the main worry is not an attack but a mistake or an accident. When Yorkshire heard that there could be disaster which would see the South obliterated there were celebrations in the streets. When they found out it was actually South Korea rather than the South of England the Yorkshire people were disappointed that a whole street party would go to waste…and then Margaret Thatcher died.
A BBC Panorama documentary that went undercover in North Korea showed that the hospitals in North Korea had absolutely no patients. This caused shock amongst the journalists and viewers but we couldn’t help but think that at least its better than the NHS waiting lists.
So here is our WOWS Poll this week, we would love to hear what your thoughts are on the question below
