Podcast: TalkRadar UK Episode 71


Listen now...

Is there such a thing as an actually funny videogame-themed joke? You may snort like a humourless pig at such an outrageous suggestion, but this week's TalkRadar UK team - along with the help of their stalwart listeners - prove that comedy and gaming can be compatible. So if you're looking for some killer gags to help you woo that special lady/gentleman gamer seeking a BFF with a GSOH, then this week's TalkRadar UK is for you.

There's all the usual juvenile stupidity, rambling nonsense, sexual repression and occasional outbursts of gaming-centric conversation, with additional disturbing recurring references to 'Cleveland steamers'. Regular host Nath is out of the country 'on business', so Cundy parks his ass in the Big Chair and makes futile attempts to control the irrepressible talkative force of Dave H and Meiks. Do your ears have balls big enough for Episode 71 of TalkRadar UK?

You should brace yourselves for the following...

*NEWS! - A story about PS3 piracy that somehow spirals out of control like a mental cross-eyed banshee on angel dust and turns into a baffling discussion about the plot of The Fly II. Things take a turn for the utterly indifferent with some mumbling about the PlayStation Phone before finishing off with Meiks getting a massive boner for 90s dinosaurs. Again.

*APPRECIATION SECTION! - Meiks maintains his state of arousal by waxing himself absolutely lyrical in the pants about Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Here is a video of the game that Meiks eulogizes with his mouth:

And this picture of a sausage roll Nemesis will make perfect sense once you've listened to the podcast:

*QUESTION OF THE WEEK! - It's laugh-a-minute hilarity as we read out answers to the question: What’s the best game-related joke you’ve ever heard? Prepare to be pumped full of mirth.

Due to Dave H making a cock of things, some of the quality jokes submitted were not read out on the podcast. These are those jokes:

"Why does Donkey Kong brush his teeth? To prevent tooth DK." From Y2Ken

"What cars do the Chimera drive? Hybrids." From Y2Ken

"Who's there?"
"Tony Hawk"
"Tony Hawk who?"
"Exactly" From Sam Campion

"Yo momma's so fat I need two pokeflutes to wake her ass." From Joseph Spicer

*GAMESRADAR HOTLINE! - Our mobile communication device is on fire this week. Which may explain why we couldn't get the voice mail to work. Bit of a bummer, but there's more than enough quality texts to make up for it.

    You guys never fail to make my day. Love these podcats & you guys. Really do. Also Super Meat Boy for the win! That was my game of last year, even got 100% on it I love it that much. Anyway keep up the good work you gorgeous bastards. Especially you Cundy ;) x
  • MrWrighty987 - January 12, 2011 9:36 p.m.

    Another Classic. Also, didn't Dino Crisis 3 already come out about 7 years ago?
  • garnsr - January 12, 2011 9:06 p.m.

    Good show, but for about thirty seconds every 15 minutes or so you stopped talking about movies and mentioned games! I thought this was a movie show. If all this game talk continues I may have to stop listening.

  • Matt Cundy - January 12, 2011 7:41 p.m.

    @BlueCroup It *should* be on iTunes. But - insanely - I can't access iTunes from my computer at work, so I'll investigate as soon as I can.
  • BlueCroup - January 12, 2011 7:32 p.m.

    This isn't appearing on iTunes. Seems a few podcasts are having problems. Also the subscribe link on the landing page leads to something else
  • MrWindowPayne - January 12, 2011 7:25 p.m.

    Thanks for the mention, great podcast this week. In relation to my joke, it was from a Mass Effect colouring book on the interwebs. That is the link if you want a look.
  • ThatSkinnyGuy - January 12, 2011 6:24 p.m.

    I was born and raised in Blackpool... at least you guys probably escaped after a weekend, it took me 27 years to move away from there. Also I used to work at the Pleasure Beach and you're bang on about the Passage del Terror... a mate of mine played Frankenstein in there. Scary as balls. Great 'cast fellas.
  • 510BrotherPanda - January 12, 2011 5:31 p.m.

    Seeing that bright orange article header with your faces in the morning gets me even more about this podcast now! Nice job, Towelly! Keep it up, everyone!
  • Hoody - January 12, 2011 5:19 p.m.

  • BlueCroup - January 12, 2011 5:10 p.m.

  • frmonth - January 12, 2011 4:09 p.m.

  • bluscorp - January 12, 2011 3:37 p.m.

  • Matt Cundy - January 12, 2011 2:58 p.m.

    @KidKatana Yep - Towell is responsible for the the pop art heads. Pop art and beards do not mix. @flabslapper Thanks for doing the vid. It made us roflchopter. @bluscorp Sorry that T-Mobile mugged off your message.
  • bluscorp - January 12, 2011 2:26 p.m.

    :'( It was my phone call, i just got mugged :'( BTW love all the jokes, fan art and the video, it was f%%king funny lol.
  • flabslapper - January 12, 2011 2:24 p.m.

    thanks for putting my vid up! I just wish I had started listening to you guys a lot sooner!
  • Clovin64 - January 12, 2011 2:09 p.m.

    Cundy takes over as the TRUK host? I have to hear this. Can't wait to download this!
  • KidKatana - January 12, 2011 2:06 p.m.

    Seeing as he did an article about it once, is Justin responsible for the rather nifty pop art TRUK team? You've nailed Hooters and his intensive gaze. Cundy and Meiks' beards look a bit weird though.
