This week's episode was tremendous fun. Journalist and comedy writer Ariane Sherine tells us about her new book which features original pieces by everyone from Richard Dawkins to Josie Long. Ariane's now-familiar slogan "There is probably no God, now stop worrying and enjoy your life" was first displayed on London buses in 2008, after thousands joined her campaign to match religious advertising with an atheist message. We also learn about her TV comedy writing career, working with Seinfeld and Larry Sanders producer Fred Barron.
You might be surprised that trendy young thing Samuel Preston ("Preston", formerly of The Ordinary Boys and Celebrity Big Brother) is a big retrogamer and Jim Henson fan. We welcome Samuel's brother Alex too, whose fascinating-looking and extremely timely debut novel "This Bleeding City" will be published by Faber in March. Both Prestons are very gifted writers, and we strongly recommend checking out their websites, below.
Roo and Leila chat amongst themselves about lame tourist attractions of Dorset and Hampshire... oh and everyone's favourite snack-munching former Amiga Power journalist Dave Green is back with some delicious and strange sounding things that aren't, in fact, edible at all! Or are they?
