Looks Unfamiliar 2 – Garreth F. Hirons
Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to. Joining Tim this time is writer and musician Garreth F. Hirons, who tells us about his troubling memories of indie band The Bigger The God, unlikeable action figure range Food Fighters, ZX Spectrum game Saboteur, short-lived wrestling sensation The Triangle Of Terror, Sizzlin’ Bacon Flavour Monster Munch, and BBC3 sitcom Fun At The Funeral Parlour. Along the way we’ll also be finding out why professional wrestlers should never attempt topical satire, what caused ZX Spectrum owners to live in fear of Ian Durell, and how Piers Morgan caused the decline of the maize-based snack industry.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
You can find another appearance by Garreth on Looks Unfamiliar – with more on obscure ZX Spectrum games and an update on the ever-increasing tosspottery of Piers Morgan – here; Garreth also joined us for a Christmas Special talking about forgotten Channel 4 Christmas Day oddities which you can hear here. Garreth’s podcast Retrospecticus – The Simpsons And Modern History Together At Last can be found here.
Garreth also features in The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar alongside Emma Burnell, Ben Baker, Phil Catterall, Stephen O’Brien and Mark Thompson, which you can find here.
