Looks Unfamiliar #52: Suzy Norman – I Kept This Sweaty Scarf In My Drawer For About Two Years

Chambourcy Real Chocolate Mousse - listen to Suzy Norman talking to Tim Worthington about it in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 52: Suzy Norman

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 novelist Suzy Norman, who’s scribbling references in the margin to Sugar Box by Then Jerico, psychedelic animated musical oddity Hugo The Hippo, peculiar Welsh family sayings, Jennifer And Josephine by Bill Peet, Arthur Fowler’s appearance on fictitious game show ‘Cat And Mouse’ in EastEnders, and Chambourcy Real Chocolate Mousse. Along the way we’ll be revealing Mark Shaw’s cunning scheme for achieving victory on Pointless, debating whether the cruellest parental Christmas Day manoeuvre was timing Christmas Dinner to coincide with Top Of The Pops or forcing you to open your presents in strict height order, and questioning why it is apparently ‘Mod’ to put salt on Weetaflakes. Plus there’s more discussion of early EastEnders than you’ve probably heard since Mary The Punk left the show…
