Wednesday is the new Friday

Ben and Mark visit some of Edinburgh's less busy taverns on an uncharacteristically busy Wednesday evening to discuss The Curse of the Black Spot and The Smugglers. Apologies for the slightly noisy soundscape, just imagine you're in a pirate tavern, a pirate tavern pumping out Lionel Ritchie.
The Curse of the Black Spot

Ben and Mark discuss fatherhood, angry responses to mediocrity, sappiness and Doctor Who's whipping boys.

The Smugglers

Arguing that this is possibly Hartnell's true last great performance, the Lash Lads talk about handsome location work, superstition, human greed and Mark hopes for a return of the straight historical in 2018.
