Vexed, the Creator sits on the floor of the Universe, Earth's blueprint spread across it, & contemplates the 3 left over screws in his palm.

From Bex’s close friend, Barbara Kennedy
— Barbara Kennedy (@BarbaraKPiano) April 28, 2017
Barbara actually asks TWO super inside joke questions:
1st – What should you do when you are no longer able to fight this feeling?
2nd – Was Ethelred the unready directly responsible for the french revolution?
OK! That was fun!
Final Question from good friend of the show, Space Cat –
What is your funniest travel story?
— Space Cat (@catstronomical) April 29, 2017
Sorry to those who’s questions I missed, will definitely get them next time!
o BOOK = “Animal – The Autobiography of a Female Body” by Sara Pascoe. A very well researched, funny & interesting book from comedian Sara Pascoe, who I would very much like to hug now. It’s written from the perspective of a woman – because Sara is one – but I’d recommend it to men & women alike.
o AUDIO = “John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme, Series 6”. John Finnemore is one of my favourite things on the radio. This is the latest series of his Souvenir Programme, of which I own every series & will listen to them again & again. I believe his style of comedy will appeal to anyone who appreciates a bit of “weird” Twitter. “Cabin Pressure” & “Double Acts” are among his other triumphs.
o FILM = “Guardians of the Galaxy”. I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for Sci-Fi & Super Hero films, but this is my go-to pick-me-up DVD. It never fails to make me laugh, even when I’m sure I’ve seen it too many times.
Huge thanks to Bex @Bexdora for joining me this week!
Next week we have Will @upsidedowntrash!
Join us again, won’t you?
