    Yo ho ho and a bottle of vodka

  • 70. Special: The Monkey’s Paw

    What happens when you take a boring old monkey paw, fill it with magical evilness and exactly three wishes, and give it to an unsuspecting family who like playing chess and listening to the wind?

    Will they wish for more paws?

    You're feeling proud, brave and completely diplomat. You howl with pride. Howl like a recently cursed werewolf singing his heart out at the clavichord. Just as you reach the crescendo of your happy wolf song it dawns on you... Do I actually remember anything?

    Well do you?!

  • 68. The Last Song of The Werewolf – Book 4 Finale!

    Ancient Russian legends speak of an old curse.

    It is said there is a man, human to a glance, but listen to him sing and you will hear the beautiful and sad voice of a wolf.

    This half man, half wolf, is older than time itself. Through the millenia he has sought but one thing, one thing that could finally release him from his furry prison - true love.

    Who is the beast? Will the curse finally be broken? How can this possibly relate to War and Peace?

    Join us this week as we answer these questions and more in the final episode of Book 4.

  • 67. The Big Ping-Pong Punt

    The first rule of Ping-Pong-Cricket cards is: you do not talk about Ping-Pong-Cricket-Cards.

    The second rule of Ping-Pong-Cricket Cards: you DO NOT talk about Ping-Pong-Cricket Cards!

    Third rule of Fight Club, sorry Ping-Ping-Cricket Cards: if someone yells “stop!”, goes limp, or taps out, the Ping-Pong-Cricket Card game is over.

    Theres only one question, 'Are you afraid to play?"

    Everything is on the line... (sort of)

  • 65. Ok, Maybe One Funeral

    We've had some good times over the last 64 episodes haven't we? We've laughed, we've loved, we've danced the Cooper. Absolutely, there was a small amount of horrifying war, and just a touch of mindless violence. But overall, it's been a lot of fun.

    But as the saying goes, sometimes life gives you pineapples, and sometimes life drops hundreds of huge, sad, pineapples on you from a great height and if they hit you you'll feel incredibly sad and in pain.

    This week is the 2nd kind of week, so as the sad pineapples rain down around us let's find strength in the thought that at least we've got each other. No matter how many pineapples Tolstoy throws at us from the sky, we're reading the book together.

  • 64. No Weddings And No Funeral

    Shy Moscovite Pierre (Hugh Grant) meets Moscovian Hélène (Andie MacDowell) at their own wedding and enjoys several months of marriage to her.

    The next time they meet, at their own house, Hélène is accompanied by a poor but amusing lover Dolokhov (Corin Redgrave), leaving Pierre heartbroken.

    Never mind, with the bald hills on the horizon, there's still time for him to win the love of his local sweetheart using anger, money, and shouting.

    This hugely popular comedy established Hugh Grant as Hollywood's favourite bumbling Russian and garnered Oscar nominations for Best Picture.

  • 63. I Challenge Thou!

    The party continues!

    As guests greedily sup turtle soup and toast every single person in Russia a storm is brewing...

    Not a literal storm, like a storm, but an internal storm.

    What happens when a massive man with long sad hair and giant healthy red hands is pushed to his limits? Will he explode like a large massive bomb; or will he just sit there looking all sad and red?

    Retribution is coming.

  • 62. Time For Toast

    Dear Listener,

    You are cordially invited to an evening of fine dining, amusements, and powerful dancing at The English Club.

    In attendance will be one SPECIAL GUEST plus Russia's oldest and wealthiest men, and of course me, the sauciest boy in town Count 'Sauce guy' Rostov. Truly it is not to be missed.

    Over 18 delightful courses we will travel the culinary world, consuming everything from chicken chins to sterlet shins. The official sauce of the party is 'mayonnaise' so please dress appropriately.

    I look forward to your reply from the bottom of my sauce pot.


    Saucey saucey Count Rostov
