In episode 22, Rosie and Jessica celebrate the (belated) first birthday of the podcast. There are some theatre reviews, some BFI business, Top 5 Things About Birthdays and, would you credit it, actual content in Needle and Fed. This episode no longer contains Rosie explaining why she is scared of trampolines for two minutes.
In episode 21, Rosie and Jessica venture to new territories from Jessica’s new dining table in her new flat. They get all caught up on her new abode, Rosie’s off to a party and we hear their Top 5 Household Appliances, in honour of Jessica’s new fridge. Rosie also shares both her talents for musical mimicry and an unorthodox way of consuming Pop Tarts. Due to a laptop-based meltdown, this episode was recorded in February and has only just been liberated from its editing prison.
In episode 20, Rosie gets us all caught up on her exciting trip to hospital and her recommendations for which painkillers are the most fun. Jessica has been to the theatre to see a musical based on a hit compilation album, there are the Top 5 things to do when you’re poorly and a heartwarming tale of American Girl dolls. This episode was produced by Head of Surgery Kaley.
In episode 19, Rosie and Jessica launch into the new year with a look back at the old, bringing you their Year of Fun review. Plus there have been plenty of trips to the theatre and Christmas parties to report, as well as the Third Annual New Year’s Eve Lee Pace Film Festival. All will not necessarily be explained.
In episode 18, Rosie has been to some fancy dinner parties, but lowers the tone by enthusing about the new Nintendo, Jessica has been to the theatre and had found a bar with blankets. Rosie and Jessica take you through their Top 5s crafts and of course bring you a Strictly update. Plus a catch-up on Operation Get Festive!
In episode 17, Rosie and Jessica have been to some Christmas fairs, both planned and accidental, Jessica’s been to the cinema and Rosie’s been to the BFI. There’s discussion of upsides of feminism, Strictly chat, and Top 5 TV Theme Tunes, and in Needle and Fed, Rosie has finished her jumper, to much jubilation.
In episode 16, Jessica gives us her take on the Hollywood Costume exhibition at the V&A and disgusts Rosie with talk of the titular pudding. We have Strictly Update, a last-minute, wildcard-entry Needle and Fed and, in keeping with Jessica’s trip, a rundown of the Top 5 Costumes. Plus top tips for what to do if you’re housebound by the weather. This episode was produced by Intern Walter.
In episode 15, Rosie manages to stretch her birthday celebrations out for an absurdly long time, Jessica reports on an exhibition she went to ages ago and Rosie reports on some excellent food she’s had out and about, plus a Cholera Outbreak. There’s a Strictly Update, Top 5s, a Snack of the Week and some disappointed animals.
In episode 14, Jessica “wows” Rosie with her knowledge of European capitals, Rosie’s been off to a pub quiz and they both get over-excited by their Top 5 cakes, with talk of birthday cakes gone by, rainbow cakes and Jane Asher’s cake decorating masterpiece, ‘Quick Party Cakes’. Plus popular favourites Needle and Fed, What We’ve Seen This Week and the return of Sit Down and Shut the Folk Up.
In episode 13, we return for a bumper back-to-school (ish) special. We get you up to speed with what we’ve done since Edinburgh, review the Disney film Tangled, leading to a rundown of our Top 5 Disney films. Plus some of our knitting is actually really almost practically finished. There’s work-based baking, a lot of books read and some tiny wee princesses.
