Episode notes

Episode 0601 and we’re watching The Dustbinmen.

Our first podcast since Covid and averaging 5 hours sleep between us, we sat through the premiere (aka Debut) episode of this classic from ’69 (nice).

With the main characters names Cheese and Egg, Heavy Breathing, Winston Platt and Eric, we knew before going in this was going to be an absolute treat.

Is Mr. Sheen really the Rad Baron? Just how close do you need to drive to a bin van to catch the smell? Which Thunderbird is which? All these questions and more get discussed to zero conclusion.
