Stand-ups Stephen K. Amos and Jason Byrne and comic performers Katherine Parkinson and Justin Edwards are brought together for a radio gang show that mixes the political with the plain silly.

The Series 3 line-up has altered slightly, with Kevin Bishop, Doon Mackichan and Jessica Ransom joining Stephen K Amos and Justin Edwards. This latest series answers all the questions you've probably never asked. How does a mouse get into a can of baked beans? What happens when paleontologists speculate about the sex lives of dinosaurs?
