Jingo – Operation Desert Squirm

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.

Feet of Clay – Go Ahead, Bake My Clay, Punk

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 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.
