THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - SEPTEMBER 2021 EPISODES!

AUTUMN ON THE SHY LIFE 2021...

Hello beasties!


This time on the blog we'll be looking at the episodes of the podcast released during September 2021...

First up - in a change to the scheduled episode - we caught up with Toppie and DJ to discuss the films that they discussed during the 3rd season of Matinee Minutiae... We were originally going to present another episode which involved DIY and some dastardly goings on; but then I realised that there were mentions in that episode that occur after the goings on of another episode! It's all very confusing and you really don't need to worry about it at all...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 466:
CATCHING UP WITH THE MATINEE MINUTIAE GANG!

Here we are for episode 466! In a change to the scheduled episode - because I got the order wrong - we are instead catching up with DJ Starsage and Toppie Smellie from the Matinee Minutiae podcast as they review some of the films that they covered during the third series of their show (2020-21)! Our next show, #467 sees Sniffy Martin finally confronting the person who he suspects to be his birth mother; but how will it all go!? Do join us, please?! Email us at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. All MM clips are the property of DJ Starsage and Toppie Smellie. All other content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2021. Episode 466 was recorded on Friday 27th August 2021.
