First up let's look at the episodes that have been released most recently...
The first of our two new episodes was recorded in Verona at the start of November - but all many not be as it seems...
Here we are for episode 122 as we follow Mr Yeti through his flights of fancy and land ourselves in Verona, Italy so that he can celebrate his birthday... But, of course, nothing is ever quite as it seems, is it? Thank you to Calum W and Wifey Jo for their help with this episode and to Big Fatty for the use of clips from Big Fatty Online #2554. Our next show, number 123 finds Mr Yeti doing a live show whilst still trapped deep underground. Do join us, won't you?! We promise it won't be too damp and cold! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 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. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2017. Episode 122 was recorded between 12th October and 10th November 2017.
Here we are for episode 123 and we join Mr Yeti who is still trapped in Bettina Du Pres' cellar. He intends to do a live show no matter what and there is even extra material featuring DJ Starsage recorded earlier this month. Thanks DJ, for your time! Thanks also to Deeley for his appearance as "Deeley-hallucination!" Our next episode, number 124 resolves all the recent troubles between Mr Yeti and Dameus Twinklehorn - but will it end well or with even more trouble!?! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at email@example.com 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. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2017. Episode 123 was recorded between 5th and 19th November 2017, with extra material recorded on 5th November 2017.

Episode 133/134: Christmas 1 and 2
I'm still not completely sure whether we'll have one or two pre-recorded Christmas episodes this year. I had considered doing one full of interviews and guests and one full of story - it may be that it's all rolled into one bumper episode.
LIVE CHRISTMAS EPISODE
An extra live Christmas episode broadcast on Christmas Day Evening and released soon after!
