2012 #5: Burns Baby Burns - Simon Munnery and Mary Bourke. After three days in a row of different audio failures one begins to suspect that the podcast is cursed. Today the desk finally recorded the show without a hitch, but that's not much use when the main guest hasn't shown up. ITV2's Brendon Burns was nowhere to be seen and couldn't be contacted and so the call went out for a replacement comic who didn't arrive until ten minutes into the show. Luckily for us all we had true comedy legend and Great British eccentric Simon Munnery as a super-sub to tell us all about his dining experience with no food, Cluub Z and the time he had a quarter of a million pounds to spend on hats. Margaret is back in the audience trawling for young men before returning to Durham and we get to find out which Dr Who monster she'd most like to have sex with. Richard lets us know why he loves Barry Cryer more than his own dad and explains his arch rivalry with the penguin and is no way treading water until a guest arrives. Mary Bourke has bothered to turn up and impresses with her stand-up. Burns later revealed he was asleep and will now be a guest on 14th instead- why do I have a feeling this might become like the boy who cried wolf?
