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 sports writer Carrie Dunn, who is scouring the VAR for any evidence of Tony Slattery sitcom Just A Gigolo, Don’t You Worry by Madasun, the Sinclair ZX Spectrum + 2 James Bond Action Pack, The Isle Of Wight Waxworks Museum, stage musical remount Rent Remixed and Channel 4’s coverage of the Women’s FA Cup. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to conduct a Desmond Llewelyn Rave, studying the geological effects of the Slattery Onslaught, treating Steptoe And Son to a jaaaaam-style makeover and debating who would ‘win’ out of Denise Van Outen and DCI Gene Hunt.

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. Whichever coffee it was that Tony Slattery advertised where it had I’m Into Something Good and it slowed down when he drank the wrong brand. That’ll do.
