No Pressure To Be Funny: Series 7, Episode 3 (30th March 2014)

No Pressure to Be Funny, March 30th 2014 - in which we deliver something unique in the history of British media - an interesting, informative and very funny discussion of the EU... Joe Wells brings the long-overlooked dolphin angle of the Ukraine crisis to public attention, causing Robin Ince to lose his nice-guy-in-an-edgy-cardigan image, Alex Andreou compares Vladimir Putin enlighteningly to his cat, and Suzanne Moore lyrically eulogises Ed Miliband's 'MDMA eyes'. Pippa Evans introduces the new king of wimp-rock alongside her more famous character Loretta Maine. With the regular contributions from Alistair Barrie and Nick Revell, and hosted as usual by James O'Brien.
