A NEW BOOK FROM MISTER YETI!!

IT'S SHY YETI'S BESTEST VERSE!

Hello beasties!

This week I'll be telling you a little about my new compilation, SHY YETI'S GRRR-REATEST HITS (1992-2017) - a collection of my favourite poems and short prose pieces that I've written over the past 25 years... I also have more podcasts to share with you - so let's get into those first...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 181: A SURPRISE LIVE PRIDE48 SHOW - 08.07.18

Here we are for episode 181 - and in a change from the advertised programme we have an impromptu LIVE show on Pride48! We have guests - my niece, Alena - over from the States and also top fashionista, Anastaaaaasia Anastasia who Yeti Uncle John attempts to interview and Cromitty regresses back to a past life. Pretty normal stuff - but do please take a listen anyway! Our next show, #182 sees us returning to the originally scheduled edition in which we learn all about Charisma - Charlie Grrr's former pie-love! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Sound effects by Paul Chandler.

If you ever wondered what types of pie Charlie Grrr is most attracted to you then this episode is - most certainly - for you...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 182: CALL ME PIE YOUR NAME...

Here we are for episode 182 - in which we hear all about Charlie Grrr's current dating situation before learning about another occasion where Charlie got extra close to a pie named Charisma - an association which ended in heartbreak. We hear from the regulars - there are also poems and a 1995 Sutton Park clip. Our next episode, number 183 sees us heading back onto the airwaves for July's OFFICIAL live edition - where Paul will be baby-sitting the peepers. Do join us, won't you?!

We had a second live episode for July - this one our official third Sunday of the month edition - we had friends in the chat-room and all of us were given the responsibility of baby-sitting Ikk's pet peepers!

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 183: LIVE PRIDE48 SHOW - "OFFICIAL" JULY 2018 EDITION

Here we are for episode 183 - in which we head out into Pride48 LIVE for our official July edition (aside from our surprise live edition from last weekend!) This time Paul has been asked to mind the peepers whilst Ikk is away for the weekend - but, as one might imagine, things do not necessarily go so smoothly. Will Cromitty and Yeti Uncle John be able to help juggle this responsibility with manning the chat-room. All this and there are after-show extras. Our next episode, number 184 sees Ikk working towards opening a dating agency - can some friends of the show give him some advice? Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Sound effects by Paul Chandler.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 179: SOMETHING TO CHEW OVER!!

Here we are for episode 179 - in which we meet my friend. Leigh Robertson, from the podcast Chewing The Cud. We discuss a recent cinema trip - musing how many dinosaurs we have seen on the streets recently and then we move onto music and beyond. We hear from the regulars - there are also poems - only old enemy of the show, Zap is on hand to cause as much trouble as possible. Of course we soldier ever on!! Our next episode, number 180 sees us sharing an episode that we recorded in Copenhagen back in early May 2018. Do join us, won't you?!

Here we are for episode 180 - in which we head for Denmark, to holiday in the city of Copenhagen. We visit galleries and museums - take a boat trip and spend lazy afternoons in public parks! It's all good. Only it would appear that there is slightly more going behind the scenes than we ever realised - as Cromitty points out at the end of the show. Our next episode, number 181 sees us catching up with Charlie Grrr where we learn that bears can have deep and can have meaningful relationships - but only withpies. Do join us, won't you?!

There will be more new episodes coming soon - for more information see the rest of this post...




As hinted at the top of this post we've been busy already this month - episode 171 saw us talking with my friend Beverley and as of Friday 8th June we have recorded with her for a second time and hopefully you'll get to hear that soon; in fact it should be out tomorrow as episode 176... (We'll give you links next post - but do subscribe on iTunes or any other podcast place!) Our chat with Wifey Jo, recorded on Monday 4th June was just released as episode 173. In addition to all this I was up very early on Saturday 9th June to record with Toppie Smellie of The Smellcast (who stayed up very late to be there!) We were mainly recording for episode 200 - but some of our chat also appears in the aforementioned episode 176. Episode 200, on the other hand, probably won't be released until September - but it's good to get a lot of this special edition in the can and also to have Toppie and Aunt Tappie playing a very important part of this. All I will say for the moment is that episode 200 is all about the Murder Mystery Weekend which we've been muttering about in the background for many a month now.

But what else do we have in store!?!

EXCITING THINGS COMING UP IN YETI-LAND...

JUNE

We have two live shows this month - although one of them you've already missed live as it was broadcast on Sunday 17th June 2018. We concluded celebrating the 10th anniversary of my SHY YETI'S INCREDIBLE PIE-CRUST COLLECTION which was released slightly over 10 years ago now. There were some familiar names in the chat-room and some actual poems shared. Check out the podcast version of this episode (#175) it has just been released and includes extra content - which this time is some more random questions with Nick G and Andy C, recorded back in April when we recorded the main episode with these two. (see more information above).

Coming up very soon indeed now, on Saturday 23rd June 2018 you can hear Nick and I talking about all manner of things during the Pride48 Summer Live Streaming Event - this is the second year that we've taken part and it should be a fun weekend to listen in to... Most shows will release their live episodes as regular podcasts, but it is always more fun if you can get yourself into the chat-room and take part too!

Don't forget that you can check out the schedule for the Pride 48 event at the following link:
