Bristol Hippo Drome

Collings and Herrin Podcast 137, belated, comes from the Bristol Old Vic Jam festival, and we encourage you to have a look at what else is on. Recorded in front of a patient and helpful audience at the Studio, not the main theatre, because we were “in the round” we opted to move around, a quarter at a time, every 15 minutes, so as to spread ourselves out over the full circle of the audience. The lovely audience, a real living “hive mind” Wikipedia – whose knowledge actually stretched to a man called John explaining the answer to Andrew’s cryptic cross word clue (after the podcast), and man we called London Irish explaining everything else, including the animal rules of rugby and some spunk-based physics – we had fun with the smiling San Diego hippo, Paul the octopus, the Guardian‘s arcane Paul The Octopus headline KICKER CONSPIRACY, Richard’s insistence on imagining Tony Blair’s signature on Cherie Blair’s tits, the actual derivation of “Bristol Jam” and the unexpected arrival of an actual Bristol astronaut. It’s all great fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did [check out all four quarters of the audience, below]. Over to Orange Mark …
