202. Get It Checked

This week Gemma sits down with her friend Garry Azzaro to discuss his trials and tribulations with stage 2 colon cancer. Throughout the experience Garry has managed to keep his sense of humour, which I'm sure will have helped. Garry is such a lovely person and we at Talking Codswallop are honoured that he shared his story with us. Another thing about Garry (as covered in a previous episode) he is the creator behind International Ridicule which are custom made property board games, they are truly incredible. Perfect for birthday's, Christmas, Weddings etc or just a treat for yourself. 

Still plenty of giggling to be had as Garry is one funny guy.

This week you get the chance to listen to a pre-recorded episode that Gemma and James took part in with Melissa from the Brook Reading Podcast. We review Gemma's favourite film; 10 things I hate about you. We also review Not Another Teen Movie without planning to, typical #Codswallop haha! :) 

Movie Synopsis:

Adapted from William Shakespeare's play "The Taming of the Shrew," 10 Things I Hate About You starts off with Cameron, new student at Padua High, sitting in the office of the quirky guidance counselor Ms. Perky. He is then shown around the school by Michael, who will become his best friend. During his tour is when Cameron first sees Bianca Stratford, a beautiful sophomore with one problem: she isn't allowed to date. And neither is her "shrew" sister, Katarina, a senior who loves indie rock and feminist prose and hates conformity. But Kat and Bianca's father alters his house rule: now, Bianca can date... as long as Kat has a date, too. Now, in order for Cameron to date Bianca, he has to find someone to date Kat. So Michael helps him enlist the help of pretty-boy/jerk/model Joey Donner, tricking him into thinking that *he* will get to take Bianca out if he pays someone to take out Kat. His choice: Patrick Verona, a bad-boy with a mysterious reputation--some say he ate a live duck once, others that he lit a state trooper on fire, and even more claim that he had a brief porn career. Will Patrick win Kat's heart? Will Cameron win Bianca's? Or will everything hit the fan...?

198. Happy Festivus

In the words of George Costanza, Happy Festivus everyone. Not sure who George Costanza is, don't worry nor did Gemma until a few months ago, but James explains all in the week's festive LAST OF THE YEAR episode. Gemma and James discuss how other countries celebrate Christmas, KFC anyone? The Salty Tadpoles let us all know which Christmas song they would like to fly to the moon, not feeling Christmassy? Don't fear, James and Gemma still manage to find stuff to moan & laugh about, especially as they are recording far earlier than Gemma would have liked. Grrrr James! :p 

End music by Sean Faust - A Time for Christmas (NSFW) 

Sean wrote this song 25 years ago when he was working in retail and Gemma LOVES it. Very funny, very brilliant, but definitely not one for the boss to hear (so perfect for Talking Codswallop Podcast). To find out more about Sean, please throw a couple of pounds/dollars his way here:

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! WE FOOLED YOU.

James this week is joined by two special gorgeous guests. You will know who they are, but remember James has goldfish brain. This week's movie review is 2004's cult classic Shaun of the Dead. Lots of laughter, random chat for the first 20 minutes, basically a typical Talking Codswallop episode in the form of Celluloid Codswallop. Gemma (whoops, gave a guest away) tries to guess who Jasper Carrot's daughter is, after a 5 minute conversation about the actress she said, Gemma, James and wait for it.... Joanne (Surprise) realise they are all talking about someone different. That's just a small hit as to what to expect from this episode. Anyone wishing to watch this episode along with the podcast, we say... Good luck. 

We at Talking Codswallop hope you enjoy this episode as much as we had recording it. Grab hold of your sides, delve into the sweeties/popcorn and join us on this crazy, bonkers journey.

This week Gemma & James are joined by Melissa from The Brook Reading podcast & what a blast they had. One listener sends Gemma a YUMMY present, and of course he is then turned into a fictional "serial killer". What does seeing 12 Magpies mean? Update on the o2 phone debarcle. James complains about walkers & Melissa is wonderful and patience while all of this chaos is going on around her. LOL! Being a Tadpole, she knew what she was getting herself into. LOL :) Where typically do non-American's want to go and eat? What's Wally up to now? and why is James pissed off with the Metro.... AGAIN. We also discuss how amazing The Brook Reading podcast is. This is a very funny episode and should come with a warning! :)

181. Death Ingloria

This week Gemma sits down with Galina Rin who is the incredible singer and brains behind the band/comic Death Ingloria. And what did they discuss?... well, of course, Heinz Beans and Ramen Noodles. What else would they discuss... Ok, fine, they also talk about Galina's incredible music & the coinciding comic book (which is a genius idea). To explain Death Ingloria further: they explores Humanity’s depths, its heights, and its inevitable conclusions through rock music, comic art and animation. This is such a great chat & Galina allowed us to play one of her tracks from her NEW album, so crank up the listening device at the end of the show and make all of your friends jealous that your listening to something really bad ass, then visit their website to purchase the Album, Comic & Colouring book combo.

179. STICKY

When you say CANDYMAN, CANDYMAN, CANDYMAN! in the mirror you want our next guest to appear. This week Gemma sits down to discuss the magic of Rock candy with the King of the Sticky's; Mr David King. 

Dave is one of the creators behind the company Sticky, which is taking the internet by storm with their livestream videos. The story of this company is amazing from how it all began, how it was nearly all over and how the internet saved the company. The lovingly nicknamed Sticky Weirdo's (their fan base) helped to make this incredible journey. Dave shares some of the stories he's received from people expressing how their video's have helped people's mental health and well being and as a watcher myself (yes, I'm Gemma... surprise), I can see why. All of the staff are extremely entertaining & fascinating, while we get a insider view on how to make candy's, or as we would call it in the UK Stick of Rock. These people are officially artists in my eyes and seem to be able to create ANYTHING with sugar. 

Salty Tadpoles & Sticky Weirdo's you are all in for a treat with this episode, and a big thank you from me to ALL of the staff at Sticky for keeping me entertained during boring work days. It was a honour to speak to David King about this journey. Thank you to all of the Sticky Weirdo's who submitted questions for Dave.

176. James, Who?

Guess what... James' microphone is still not working, so Joanne steps up to the mark and joins Gemma on the OG Codswallop show. Could this be a girlie show? All about makeup and hair styles? Nope, think again.. we pick on James, discuss the similarities between Derry Girls and real life Northern Ireland with some eye opening stories, Terry Pratchett, Bridgeton, Football, Politics, Religion and what we are watching on Disney+. Why is Joanne painting guns? What are the best and most groan-worthy Dad Jokes? All this and much more fun and laughs, including Codswallops.
