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.
This is a collection of highlights featuring Joel Morris on the View-Master Demonstration Reel, Joanne Sheppard on Colorado Beetle panic, Emma Burnell on the stage musical version of Dirty Dancing, Samira Ahmed on The Fun Food Factory, Jonny Morris on Battlestar Galactica action figures, Matt Lee on They Might Be Giants’ ‘Dial-A-Song’ service, Shanine Salmon on Neopets and Anna Cale on Diana Dors’ Dors’ Dozen. Along the way we’ll be nominating our suggestions for the View-Master Netflix Universe, revealing how to spot a supervillain transporting a ‘formula’, learning about the influence a giant floating image of Patrick Swayze had on the civil rights movement, considering whether it’s possible for Dirty Dancing to have too much dancing in it, revealing how not to wow the opposite sex by listening to the b-side of Birdhouse In Your Soul and debating just how many hours of airtime Graham Norton devoted to a robot dog walking very very slowly across the studio floor. Plus there’s something you may not have heard before – Tim on Goon Pod talking to Tyler Adams about Peter And Sophia by Peter Sellers And Sophia Loren.
