Episode 18: Andy Riley

4417640973_d58aa4d082_oOur guest this week is comedy writer and cartoonist Andy Riley, the twisted mind behind the Bunny Suicides books and the Observer's comic strip Roasted, as well as loads of great TV and radio comedy.

While we were chatting, Andy drew some amazing cassette cards for us (watch a video of him drawing them and a photo of the inlay cards he drew and signed), and you can order one of his sick-brained designs over on our tapes buying page now. Be quick - they're bound to go really fast. And remember, to win one of Andy's books (Selfish Pigs, DIY Dentistry, or The Bumper Book of Bunny Suicides) email us with your guess for how many fingers you think he's holding up.

Also in this episode, SRS's snacks-loving4420137322_59229b0834_o pal Dave brings a range of mainly-acceptable biscuits for sampling, Leila goes to an exhibition involving live birds at London's Barbican and Roo tries to hold it together to do the links while out of his tree on beer and codeine.
