On Friday Fingers on Buzzers, the quiz-chat podcast starring Jenny Ryan off of The Chase and comic Lucy Porter began but already there’s an exciting upstart rival (that was actually planned ages ago so the timing is coincidental), Hey, I Was On That! is meant to start on Monday where Friends of the Bar and Game Night vetrans Alex McMillan and Laura Conlon have a chat to contestants about their experiences. The first one features Stephanie Merritt who featured on University Challenge recently.
Follow their Twitter @heyIwasonthat for more details.
Ah, that was something! Our friends at RTV Warriors were meant to be doing their own Game Night, based heavily on the pioneering Game Night format tonight but it’s been pushed back a week for “good reason” apparently so you might want to put that in your diaries. I’m about a month behind with podcasts generally but I’ve been enjoying their interviewing reality stars season (and if you haven’t listened to their interview with Gilles de Costa off of Belgian Mole, you should) so go and have a listen. Bother’s Bar’s Game Night will return on the 29th September.
Also next Saturday it’s Schlag den Henssler! But this episode is going to be different for us, because basically most of the commentary team is going to be running around London solving puzzles for a thing called DASH. However it sounds like Scott is willing to commentate with or without special guests so we’ll see what happens.
In other news, since between them seven or eight different people have made comments, a) Chase the Case starts on BBC1 on Monday afternoon – we’ll have a Show Discussion post, b) Millionaire is being renewed for a ten episode run (21st anniversary specials, presumably) and you can apply.
Edit: Now on iTunes.
