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 theatre critic Shanine Salmon, who’s trying to remember what email address she used to sign up to ITV’s Married With Children remake Married For Life, early social media site Habbo Hotel, BBC2 panel show Blouse And Skirt, late-night action thriller Renegade, short-lived Soap Opera With A Twist Night And Day, and virtual four legged friend service Neopets. Along the way we’ll be learning how to communicate with trees using HTML, querying how ‘Night And Day Nights’ would work, asking a parent or guardian to fax their consent, and debating just how many hours of airtime Graham Norton devoted to a robot dog walking very very slowly across the studio floor.

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. To be honest you might need one if you’re going to stay up for Renegade.
