Ep 250: The World's Worst Bumper Birthday Episode!

Ep 250: The World's Worst Bumper Birthday Episode!
* We're now on Instagram! @worstfoot * It's the big birthday, the day of days, let the jubilation commence! Worst Foot Forward's 250th Episode arrives in all its rag-glads, dressed down to the ones and ready to party like it's 1499. Ben and Barry share all sorts of facts and stories about birthdays, celebrations, presents, ageing and cake with a little help from a whole host of past guests. Joining us with their tales of terrible celebrations and baking disasters are Tiernan Douieb, Tatty Hennessy, Kit Chapman, Sacha Coward, Alasdair Beckett-King, Sadie Clark, Felix Trench, Bec Hill and Joel Morris. We also have a couple bits of news which we chat about and explain in more detail in the opening 10 minutes. The headlines are that the podcast is hereafter going to be released every two weeks rather than weekly to accommodate our increasingly busy schedules. That schedule now includes writing the Worst Foot Forward book with the aid of our new writing agent, Emily Sweet - how exciting! We also welcome Nell Thomas on board as our social media manager / official archivist to help us reach more listeners and keep you all up-to-date on what's happening at Worst Foot Towers. And for Patreon donors, there will be new treats such as the chance to pose questions to us and our guests in advance of upcoming recordings. So, we may be older, not much wiser, ever changing but still the same. We hope you enjoy the birthday episode, thanks for sticking by us for the past 5 years and never fear - there's much more silly trivia yet to come!
