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 podcaster Al Kennedy, who’s trying to scratch off and win ‘Remembering’ points for Alias The Jester, Steve Jackson’s Battle Cards, Marblehead Manor, Joe’s Apartment, early Eddie Izzard vehicle Channel Hopping, Puddle Lane and legendary ZX Spectrum game Advanced Lawnmower Simulator. Along the way we’ll be finding out about the least necessary key change ever, whether there is actually such a thing as a non-Advanced Combat Card, which die has the evillest number of sides, and what constitutes an appropriate punishment for the programmers of Count Duckula 2.
Al Kennedy is a podcaster; you can find Al’s comics podcast House To Astonish here and follow the show on Twitter at @housetoastonish. You can find Al’s Terry Pratchett podcast Desert Island Discworld here.
