Colm and Steve watch Ridley Scott’s The Fifth Elephant with Harrison Ford as Vimes, Rutgar Hauer as Wolfgang and, eh, Imelda Staunton as Lady Margolotta. Well, not quite, but have a listen and you’ll see what we’re getting at here. We went to Uberwald expecting fat and uncovered a gem instead.
Radio Morpork returns from its post-Hogswatch slumbers and wakes up to war! Colm and Steve discuss how this book feels like a bit of an oddity within the Watch continuity, how Pratchett handles intra-human culture clash in a world previously known for inter-species conflict, and what their alternate selves are doing after they pick up a zoom recorder from an alternate dimension.
Steve and Colm join the City Watch for their third outing, wherein there’s a conspiracy to oust the Patrician in favour of a puppet king… again. Is Pratchett re-visiting this plot a good thing? Listen and find out! You’ll also get a rambling discussion on trans-gender, trans-humanism and trans-legal justice (and Colm ranting about Oliver Cromwell a bit).
Colm and Steve return to the streets of Ankh-Morpork to discuss the second installment of the City Watch sub-series. Their bumper discussion takes in gun/gonne control, racism/speciesist discrimination, dog/wolf identity and dom/sub relationships.
Colm and Rose return from a long hiatus to discuss the first of the wildly popular City Watch series. Their rambling discussion takes in how ‘million to one’ odds are calculated, the possibility of Vetinari being a villian and what the Elucidated Brethren of the Ebon Night has in common with modern Men’s Rights groups.
