Electro Sheek Podcast #1

Hello there scamps!

My good friend Nate has been working hard for years to break into the tough world of radio broadcast. Ever since our hectic days at school recording our own voices onto cassette tapes he's been trying to get his foot in the door and his musical views on the airwaves.

A few weeks ago he finally got offered his own show on a local south London radio station and I was flattered when he called me up and asked me to be his co-host.

What this entails is sitting next to him and talking shit when requested while he does all the hard work. There was even a bunch of people with a guitar singing at us.

It was our first attempt so go easy on us, but please do click right here and download our podcast to tell us what you think. But only nice things.

Unusual memory


I just had a memory pop into my brain. I remembered being very young - maybe even as young as 3 or 4 - and I saw a little boy of similar age climb on top of a car on a hot day take off all his clothes and do a wee through the open sunroof.

This happened in Beckenham, South London. I wanted to tell someone about it but everyone in the office seems to be very busy whereas I'm having a rare activity lul.

I have drawn a picture for your benefit.


Top 5 things I miss about being an unemployed student

5 - Budgeting on food

I used to make a bit of a game out of trying to feed myself for a whole week with only a tenner. The best place to do this is Iceland. Everything in there costs either £1 or £2. This tends to mean that the food is made of sawdust and horse lips, but a WHOLE Christmas platter for a tenner? No one can turn their nose up at that.

My girlfriend and I once lived off Iceland Chinese Prawn Soup for a fortnight. By the end of it our wee was pink.

4 - White Lightning

The Tata Nano of alcohol, White Lightning will get you and your flatmate utterly shitboxed for about a quid. It'll also keep you nice and warm if you get your gas cut off, as any money strapped tramp will tell you.

3 - £50 making you feel like a millionnaire

This is obviously a very rare thing to happen, but when £50 suddenly appears in your bank account you feel like you're the king of humanity. It's a real 'Drinks are on me!' moment, but seeing as you've had no real experiences with proper money you haven't yet realised that £50 isn't really that much of it. So within 12 hours you're a bit pissed but skint again.

2 - Spending 2/3 of my life asleep

Sleep is not for the weak as some people might tell you but is actually brilliant and I miss every second of youthful slumber that I now spend 'earning money' and 'paying bills' and 'eating tagliatelli'.

1 - Jeremy Fucking Kyle

I love and hate Jeremy Kyle. He's what Jesus would look like if Jesus was a plasterer from Dagenham. He's a pompous little cretin who's somehow managed to blag a job where he gets his very own moral high horse from which he can piss on council estates across the land. He has a go at people for their adulterous behaviour somehow without batting an eyelid, despite leaving his wife for a woman half his age who won a competition on his radio show.

A friend of mine used to work with him at a London based radio station and she told me that Jezza was constantly trying to get in her pants the whole time they worked together. He really is a great example.

I love him.

Anyway, I best get back to work or soon I'll be unemployed and living this life again.
