Podshambles is the comedy stylings of Paddy Gervers (Jonny & The Baptists) and Laurie Havelock (once met Brian Blessed). They are two best friends who know far too much about each other. Each episode, marvel as they stagger and ramble through video games, comic books and any other fragments of geek culture that wander through their weirdly synchronised brains. No conversational cul-de-sac is left unplundered, whether it's Game of Thrones (or Goats), their many run-ins with geese, or just a load of egg puns. There's even a regular check in with Choose Your Own Adventure with Flagon the Dwarf, a not at all Dungeons and Dragons-esque romp through somewhere quite like a pound-shop Middle Earth. Expect an hour-long podcast that will make you laugh. I promise. Swearsies. BFFs 4LYF.


Podshambles 51: Gull Panic  

The Podcows aren't being put out to Casture just yet! There's plenty more audio-milk in these Shambleteets. THIS TIME: Laurie rolls the dice on the world of board games, Paddy learns some new words and uses them semi-correctly, and we take another crack at the surprisingly well-received Storytelling Challenge - back by popular demand. Is Laurie's Dad pro-skater Tony Hawk? Is Paddy a qualified horseback archer? How many gulls is too many gulls? Find out now - it's Podshambles.

Podshambles 50 (Part Two): Waft Check  

What's a couple of Pods between Casts, eh? We're all Shamblebuddies here. THIS TIME: Paddy & Laurie (the human equivalents of Restless Leg Syndrome) embark on a Choose Your Own Adventure concocted by our very own Wing Commander Havelock, which puts Paddy in the seat of...well...being Laurie for a day. TURNS OUT IT'S REALLY DIFFICULT and Paddy is a large part of that difficulty. There may also be a few returning characters from own dark and shadowed past that you may (or more likely may not) be happy to see back in our proverbial ear-saddle. Here lies the end of our 50 episode extravaganza. Light up your novelty candles, blow your questionable trumpets and dance the dance of a thousand ducks - it's Podshambles.

Podshambles 50 (Part One): Whatever's In The Fridge  

And finally, the Poducers of the show would like the give a huge thank you to the Cast. Without them, this whole Shambledisaster would not be possible. Give it up for them! *RAPTUROUS APPLAUSE AND MANY MEDALS* THIS TIME: It's our 50th birthday (or something) we're hitting the true bucket list - 50 Things To Do Before You're 50. It's mega.

Find flimsy answers to these questions and more in PART ONE of our mega-special-episode! Alert the town crier, sound the alarm, and fight your way onto live television to spread the word - it's Podshambles.

Podshambles 49: Snake People  

The Podgy little Shameblepigs have created a Casterpiece in the form of a Podcast (or so our sources say). Prepare your butts (/ears). THIS TIME: Paddy gets real about the application of baboons in animal warfare, Laurie gets super real about the fallibility of human memory, and a conversation about whether or not one quarter of the population are in fact Snake People gets way, way too real. Viva your La Vidas, stop Holla-ing back girl, and for once in your life Dream a Little Dream of Me - it's Podshambles.

Podshambles 48: Christmas In The Pub  

Cast! The Herald Angels Sing - Glory To The Shamble King(s). After all - it came uPOD a midnight clear (that one was tough but hey it’s Christmas so…fine). Once again, as is tradition, it is CHRISTMAS. Thus we bring you a very special festive Podshambles LIVE from a pub. Recorded in Oxford in between Laurie’s rampant shopping and Paddy’s maniacal gigging, we present to you a conversation between two best friends in a pub at Christmas. Paddy confuses fishermen with carpenters for ages, Laurie explains the difference between 'cooking' and 'burning', and we introduce our brand new holiday which may or may not be entirely based on the mythology of Joan Cusack (praise be unto her). Wrap your Christingles, drug Gran’s sherry, and relentlessly feed each other pudding - it’s Podshambles 48. WE HOPE YULE-IKE IT. YOU LIKE IT. YULE. GET IT.

Podshambles 47: The Small Council  

The Shamblexam results are back from the Poderators. Congratulations - you Cast. Now you can finally follow your dreams and become a qualified cannon instructor. What happens in this episode? WELL LET ME TELL YOU. Laurie manages to read Glamour magazine for a surprisingly long time, Paddy is faced with his last day on Earth, Laurie then considers moving to Berlin and Paddy decides that most of his important memories are just about Babe: Pig In The City. Also featuring a guest appearance from everyone's favourite miniature government - The Small Council. Pour yourself a Guinness, then poison it, then give it Awful Peter - it's Podshambles.

Podshambles 46: Weasel Wiggle  

Pod guys always finish Cast in the Shamblerace of Life. From now until the end of days - we accept our fate. This time in glorified audio-mess world: Paddy recalls the true meaning of Bonfire Night, Laurie is awkward at parties and the pair of hapless dreamers discuss who will win the dystopian future tech war. Will it be Frenguins? Or will it be BroBots? You decide (you don't get to decide). Pry open your coffins, set fire to the rain and snuggle into your nests - it's Podshambles.

Podshambles 45: A Stitch In Time Will Kill You  

Mind your Shamblepockets, as the Castful Podger is on the loose and oh boy does he loves rifling. Yes, it's an Oliver reference. Hooray. Paddy makes a life-changing discovery based on a certain American Hip-Hop artist, Laurie delves into the brand new works of a certain Little Wychwell based author, and the bingbongbuddies get a little misty eyed when talking about death. Oh and there's a gooseboat. Poach those eggs, pearl that wisdom and run into oncoming traffic - It's Podshambles.

Podshambles 44: Give Us Frubes  

Arrest those men and place them in Podtective Castody THIS INSTANT. The two Shamblurais are back this week with a bag full of home cooked goodies. Laurie finally gets to meet Ponyo (the lasagne blacksmith) in Choose Your Own Adventure, Paddy pitches his genetic pug/duck splice, and who would have guessed we'd end up arguing over the value of making aeroplane noises whilst running.

Podshambles 43: 100% Physical Intensity  

Let's step up to the Podium and broadCast this mess, eh? The Shambled-Eggs (Paddy & Laurie // egg friends 4 life) bring you this special bulletin (episode 43) and phwowsers it's a dingaling. In this instalment: Laurie weighs up whether or not goats are our new best friends, Paddy eats six fabs and is continually surprised by horses, and the two cherubic wangers face off against Harkson, Mammond & Clay - three men who are definitely not based on the former cast of Top Gear. Throw caution to the wind, flail wildly. and die inside - it's Podshambles 43.

Podshambles 42: Woops! There Go My Genitals  

Bread and butter Podding please - and don't hold back on the Castard! Immediate edit: I'm convinced this counts as a pun. C'mon guys it's been 42 episodes and I have to be honest I am running on empty when it comes to puns that contain rhymes for both Pod and Cast. The Shambiblical prophets return with word of a podcast. Be prepared for Paddy's new game 'Where's Dad?', get ready for Laurie/Flagon's new friend Russo Alicante, and hold onto your butts for the weirdest game of Would You Rather you are likely to hear this week/lifetime/butts. Lick your fingers, remember your regrets and cry into your casserole - it's Podshambles.

Podshambles 41: Idiotic And Asinine (Live From Sweden)  

Whack out your fishing Pod and Cast out your Shamblenets because this voyage has just become overtly bountiful. Correct.

Podshambles 36: Dweebles, We Hardly Knew Ye  

Another Podpun? Sorry mate I can't be Cast. The aces are high and the deck is loaded in favour of the Shamblegamblers in this saloon - Podshambles 36 really has it all. The team muse over their latest DnD session, Laurie gets a wet chest, and Paddy discovers both Deliveroo and Pointless on the same day. It will blow your mind. Tinker with the fusion schematics, recalibrate the advanced targeting module and meet me on the holodeck - we're taking this sucker down.

Podshambles 35: Finger Of Fudge  

Poddy (Poddy) / The little man in the red and yellow Cast. That's right - we're now at the point where I'm crowbarring Noddy references into descriptions as there are only so many words that rhyme/half-rhyme with pod, cast, or podcast. The Shambleboots are laced this week as Paddy & Laurie take you on a journey through forgotten James Bond movies, the ever increasing pretentiousness of music genres, and what happens when you shine a torch into a lemur's eyes. There's even a generous dollop of Choose Your Own Adventure thrown in for good measure. Plug in your toasters, steer clear of the bath, and dance like nobody else is dancing i.e. sit down. This is a shambles.
