Looks Unfamiliar 6 – Emma Burnell
Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster I talk to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever does. Joining me in this episode is broadcaster, columnist and standup comic Emma Burnell, who is banking on somebody else remembering Miners’ Strike fundraising album Whose Side Are You On?, the Sweet Valley High novels, short-lived playground craze Scoubidou, children’s horror novella The Patchwork Monkey, undistinguished Rutger Hauer vehicle Split Second, and the Ever Ready ‘Power To The People’ advert. Along the way we’ll be discussing the sociocultural ramifications of an earnest man talking to some earnest men, assessing the risks of hiring videos from ‘a van’, and speculating on the possible psychotropic effects of smoking a Fanta Yo-yo.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose. You can find Emma’s podcast The Zeitgeist Tapes here. If you’re after more inexplicable oddness from the past, try my book The Camberwick Green Procrastination Society.
