The Show: Futile Attempts

Any spare time we had over the Christmas and New year period was spent listening and re-listening to Kim Noble’s “Futile Attempts (at Surviving Tomorrow)” podcast – and we’re still only up to episode 6/10.

If you want a lazy half-arsed comparison think Blue Jam but, arguably, less surreal and, possibly, more mundane (with the added caveat that mundane is completely the wrong word).

Whilst we continue to struggle for the right adjective you can simply judge for yourself using the video sample below and the audio excerpts in today’s show.

High Five Hat

Humanity sucks… We all need encouragement to keep going…so I made this hat.

And on with the show…

Paul Duncan presents Le Rôti du Dimanche

The last we heard from Paul Duncan was his final Sunday Roast show way back in March 2016, just before he disappeared into the French hinterland.

After a turbulent 18 months navigating the fall out of Brexit and the near miss of a Marine Le Pen Presidency, he’s emerged unbowed to produce his first guest mix for The Joint. In so doing he now becomes our official Nouvelle-Aquitaine Correspondent.
