We’re heading back into the archives with Episode 56 from 2015. Rosie was writing an essay on The Wizard of Oz and was totally unable to talk about anything else, except for sticky toffee puddings. Luckily Jessica was on hand to talk us through her many cakes (and keep things on track.)
In episode 120, Rosie and Jessica are quickly derailed by Rosie’s twin obsessions: denim and scams. Once Rosie’s got those – and curséd pom pom creatures – out of her system, Jessica takes us through the many books she’s read during work hours. Rosie meanwhile has been knitting on the job although her job technically is knitting so it’s probably okay?
We’re taking another dip into the archives with a Yesterday of Fun from 2017. Back then, Jessica was entering a period of funemployment that mainly consisted of shredding. There was a late review of the movie Austenland and Rosie was eating a lot of Nobbly Bobblys.
In episode 119, Rosie and Jessica celebrate their (belated) seventh podcast birthday! Luckily they do not become stuck in a time loop as they discuss Netflix’s new show, Russian Doll and get caught up on various parties, plays and potential trips to IKEA.
Rosie and Jessica are on an asynchronous schedules so, to save you from a podcast-less existence, we’ll be diving back into the archives to hear some Yesterdays of Fun. Today we’ll be looking back to 2013 and Episode 21: Trumpets and Pop Tarts, in which Jessica moves house and Rosie is hoovering a crevasse.
In episode 118, Rosie and Jessica have been inundated with cinematic spiders. They’ve been catching up on lots of television (Killing Eve), movies (see above) and stand-up (see above that) over the Christmas break. Rosie’s got a shop, Jessica’s got a new job and everyone likes dumplings.

It’s here again the annual Christmas Eve reading of Clement C. Moore’s Twas the Night Before Christmas by Rosie and Jessica’s dad. This is its sixth outing and we hope it is as much a part of your Christmas as it as of ours.
In episode 117, Rosie and Jessica make a triumphant return to the studio to catch up on the events of the past few months. There have been holidays, business purchases, the ruin of a once great nation and our favourite formerly dead horny raccoon. Plus our annual fundraiser for Crisis at Christmas which you can donate to and make someone’s Christmas merry and bright.
In Episode 116 and a half…well, Rosie and Jessica haven’t been able to come to the mic much. In lieu of our normally schedule programming, here is a peek behind the curtain at our Patreon with the bonus episode that some of our supporters received for Autumn 2016. We play at being hot shot tv producers and use The Ringer‘s guide to pricing tv shows to pitch our own. It’s great fun, as far as we remember!
In episode 116, Rosie and Jessica have had all sorts of upheaval – well, one of them has. Jessica’s been on a day trip, while Rosie has moved house and re-entered the workforce. If you need something cosy and comforting to watch while the world burns around you, it’s a giant Top 5 of recommendations for Bake Off Methadone – television to watch when you’re out of Mel & Sue.
