Looks Unfamiliar 31: Mark Thompson
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 political commentator Mark Thompson, who’s offering his polling predictions for the chances of people remembering hillbilly-themed soft drink Moonshine, the A. Mazing Monsters books, L!ve TV’s Agony, sci-fi sitcom Being Erica, paperback teen detectives Hawkeye Collins And Amy Adams, and Channel 5 sketch show We Know Where You Live. Along the way we’ll be revisiting the forgotten link between Rupert And The Frog Song and Cannibal Holocaust, speculating on how many hours of L!ve TV Richard Herring might have watched, and learning the terrible fate of The Sheep That Knew Too Much. And see below for a special extra bit of chatter…
