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 quiz expert David Smith, who’s trying to recharge the remembering batteries for Have I Got Unbroadcastable News For You, Stranger In This Town by Richie Sambora, 28 Acts In 28 Minutes, the soundtrack from Billy Connolly’s World Tour Of Australia, the Sega Game Gear, Grand Theft Auto Vice City Official Soundtrack Box Set, Police Squad!, Bart Simpson’s Guide To Life and Duck Tales The Movie – Treasure Of The Lost Lamp. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to spot anyone doing the Have I Got News For You Walk Of Shame, querying the dictionary definition of ‘Didactogreekophobia’, revealing why Davro’s Sketch Pad is official Star Wars canon, and debating how to react if you order John Sergeant and get sent John Humphrys by mistake instead.
Buy A Book!
If you’ve enjoyed this, you’ll enjoy Tim’s book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. At least it’ll be easier to carry around than a Sega Game Gear.
