In episode 25, Rosie and Jessica bring you into their magical world of baking as they bake-along-a-Kitchen Sink Bars. There’s animated shenanigans in amongst their Top 5 Children’s Television Programmes, plus all your regular features. We apologise for the gratuitous reference to Fanny Cradock. It was wrong and we’re sorry.
In episode 24, Rosie and Jessica move into the portable studio as they drive from South to North London, recapping on what they’ve been up to, while Rosie is surprised by various famous landmarks. There’s an in-depth look at their Top 5 “Non-fiction” television programmes and still no knitting in Needle and Fed.
In episode 23, we’re on a bit of a time warp as we travel back to when Jessica visited Rosie after a week home alone. Rosie had just been involved in several large scale power cuts, but also made some lovely stew. We run through the Top 5 things to do when you’re in charge and discuss The Great British Sewing Bee.
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.
