Episode 15 – Football Special

Hello and welcome to episode 15 of slideintomyhand, I’m sure that is two episodes in a row I have pronounced it wrongly on the podcast. You’d think I could get the name of my podcast correct wouldn’t you?

Anyway, it’s a football theme this month so there is a lot of chat about football, but the music is mainly by indie and rock bands so there should be something to enjoy for the non-footie fans (philistines as they are more commonly known) amongst you.

I mentioned a few things in the podcast, so here is some info about subbuteo, Mark E Smith reading out the Final Scores, James McFadden’s wonder goal against France, and the march to the stadium before that game.

Well I hope you enjoy the podcast, and good luck to you and your teams for the season ahead, unless you are an old firm/dundee/millwall/crystal palace/roma/arsenal/birmingham city fan.

Political Special

So this is a special podcast since there are a bunch of elections in the UK on 5th May, I’ve themed it so all the songs are political, whilst there are a few speeches dotted throughout, a bit of Bill Hicks, and a couple of mini rants by me. It is everything you wanted to be listening to as you walked to the polling booth on Thursday, how could you have voted without it?

So, here are the twitter feeds you should be following: PennyRed, NewStatesman, NaomiKlein, DaleFarm, Mehdi Hassan, UKUncut, Michael Moore, Republic Staff, tenderhooligan, JohannHari, FalseEcon, Peter Tatchell, Shelter. Apologies if any of the spellings are wrong but if you search for them you will find them. All have a cool political message so follow and learn.

Blogs: New Statesman, Znet, moreapologies, Scottish Roundup, and jay stringer. All good informative reads, there’s more but it’s late at night and I’m falling asleep.
