A Is For Awesome Ep 12
We're back! And we're talking about those remarkable occasions when advertisers actually get it right. By which we really mean, those remarkable occasions when adverts make bigots super angry, and the rest of us get to laugh at them. Now that's truly awesome.

A Is For Awesome Ep 11
We're joined by the composer of our awesome jingle, Godfrey Johnson, to discuss why so many performers are introverts, why you should never compliment your children, and why we hope you don't take anything we say too seriously. Oh plus we talk about naked men on stage. Note: Godfrey, it turns out, likes to play the table in front of him as if it were an imaginary piano, so if you hear a little bit of banging in the sound this week, that's why.

Online shopping can be a bit like gambling, because you might win the thing that you ordered, or you might get something else, or indeed nothing at all. We discuss the future of the post office, why you should go shoe shopping in the afternoon, and Yaaseen introduces us to his fast food based system of economics.

We're talking South African representations in film and television - did you know that Scrooge McDuck once pillaged the goldfields of South Africa, and his nemesis is a boer from Limpopo? Or that Nelson from the Simpsons is really called Nelson Mandela? Or that Karen and Yaaseen really like having a go at Joburg? Now you do.
