  • 80. Peace out! – Book 5 (+ Vol 1!) Finale

    It's the end of Book 5 AND the end of Volume 1 of War and Peace - and there are just so many unanswered questions:

    Will peace last forever?
    Will the surfs ever truly be free?
    Why was that hospital so awful?
    Will Nicky get an arbitrary promotion for no reason in particular?
    Where did all those bones come from?
    Who the hell stole all the biscuits?
    What was that tiny monkey butler all about?

    Join us for this historic episode as we attempt to answer all or perhaps none of these questions!

  • 79. Dress Down Friday

    Casual clothes day, dress down day, own clothes day, free dress day, non-uniform day, uniform free day, wear what you want day...

    Whatever you call it, it might be a day you look back on fondly, remembering that time you wore your favourite jeans to school and everyone said "great jeans". Or perhaps it's memory you've locked deep in your memory shed because of the time you wore jeans to school and everyone else was also wearing jeans. 

    Or maybe, just maybe, you've no idea what we're talking about, because you always, without fail wear a uniform. 

    Join us this week as Nicky gets seriously sartorial as he attempts to use the power of his own clothes to save himself, his friends, and the entire world. 

  • 78. Laughter is the Only Medicine

    We've had mustard plasters, hot beef tea and leeches.

    In this week's episode we can add one more questionable healthcare practice to our list: laughter

    You know what they say?

    "A giggle a day keeps the Doctor away!"

    Be sure to bring your favourite joke book with you because we're going on a tour of the worst hospital ever and we think you might need it.

  • 77. Mud, Blood, and Biscuits

    If you've assembled an IKEA cupboard or two you'll know how essential good, clear instructions are. They really can make the difference between having an attractive, sturdy cupboard, or finding yourself poisoned, shot and starving after a monumental argument.

    This week we're opening a couple of WAP instructional manuals - first we'll be leafing through "How to build your first mud hut in 1000 easy steps," a simple and fun guide as relevant today as it was in the 1800s. After that we'll be creasing the pages of "Biscuits and poisoness potatoes: How to spot the difference and eat as many as possible" - an equally essential guide that litterally could make the difference between having biscuits to eat, and not having any biscuits to eat.

    Don't risk being biscuitless this week - listen to the episode now.

  • 76. Pierre’s Perfect Pilgrim Party

    Pierre the perfect pilgrim pleaser pleases pilgrims perfectly in this week's perfectly priceless episode of WAPIN7.


    "Pierre? Perfect!? " You proudly protest!

    Well yes! Pierre is a perfect, polished, patient, professional, pleasant, punctilious and perfectly perfect player and it's about time everyone knew it!


  • 75. Free The Smurfs

    This week we're talking Serfs - the indentured workforce of 1800s Russia, bonded to a lifetime of hard labor for zero pay as they slowly die from preventable diseases in their rat infested hovels.

    We'll be asking "Is that really that bad?" and hearing things like "Maybe my Serfs are actually having a great time?" as well as "Even if it won't cost me much to significantly improve their lives, what's the point? I can't be bothered quite frankly".

    Plus we meet one man who's showing his big red finger to the nay sayers as he tries to glam-up his Serfs, for better or worse.

  • 74. Meta Letter

    We just got a meta letter!

    I wonder who it's from?

    A letter inside another letter!

    I wonder who it's from?!

    A letter longer than time itself...

    I wonder who it's from!!

    A special special meta letter that's super extra long!
