First up - before we go any further - I should remind you about the ROUND THE ARCHIVES blog. Round The Archives is probably the podcast that I appear on most often, second only to THE SHY LIFE PODCAST (although I always seem to be on BIG FATTY ONLINE too), but ROUND THE ARCHIVES I actually do lengthy(ish) articles about retro TV for, often with Nick G.; in fact I'll probably be recording more with him this weekend. Anyway, where was I? Oh yes...
More (briefly) about this blog later this post; but for now we must move onto our own podcast!
This week we've finally reached the last of our trilogy of Nessie Hunt episodes; although part 3 is a bit of a postscript, really...
This episode can be downloaded on iTunes, Acast, Podbean and also from Soundcloud at the following link:
I have some more photos to share with you from my trip to Verona and Lake Garda back in November 2017 - but before we do that you might like to read back over some of what I wrote about that trip and to see some of the photos that I shared around the time of the original visit...

I've also released a few new SUTTON PARK clips from between 1992 and 2000. Here are the links should you wish to check them out.
Ep 81-82: https://youtu.be/PSyMerZnqcQ (May 1993)
Paul and Ceri try to prevent Phil from being killed by a rabid dinosaur - travelling back in time to try and save him before it is too late!
Ep 165-168: https://youtu.be/ku1-hBeiSt0 (late Summer 1993)
Harry gets turned into sausages. Nick gets the blame. Paul catches up with an old friend who has become a fanatical follower of the evil forces of Sutton Park - but then he himself succumbs to some hypnotic suggestion of his own.
Ep 433-434: https://youtu.be/SV2CpjTAZd8 (Spring 1994)
"Quick! He has an ultra-sonic retention device..." With Paul somewhat out of action Horner lures Katrina Hortensia and Geoffrey The Metallic Man into a trap - but will all go to plan?
Ep 733-735: https://youtu.be/c8g8VFg0A6I (January 1995)
All manner of going's on - involving one of the show's biggest villains!!
Ep 3154-5155: https://youtu.be/IHqURYzy6tg (November 2000)
Nick and Paul head to Vegas to try and spread the word of their adventures in Sutton Park.
Back to the ROUND THE ARCHIVES blog again for a moment... Andrew wrote a little piece about SUTTON PARK the other day, using some screengrabs which he took from some of the episodes that I've been releasing on youtube recently. Thank you, as ever, to Andrew for his support - there are only two people that write about SUTTON PARK - one of them is me and the other is Andrew! I will have to give him a long-service medal for loyalty to the show next time we meet - or maybe a lovingly mounted jelly monster by way of a trophy. (Thank you also Lisa, Martha and Rose!) Anyway, here's the article:
Whilst I'm here I should also thank Nick Goodman for single-handedly digitising all these old episodes - as it is unlikely that there would be any youtube videos or articles about the show if not for him! Thank you, Nick - and also to Aly for putting up with SUTTON PARK taking over your flat!!
152. What We Don't Like
Paul and Nick discuss a number of things that they think are over-rated, but Paul also shares his thoughts about some of his favourite non-Pride48 podcasts...
153. A Sutton Park Kind Of Night
Paul finds himself thinking a lot about the old days of SUTTON PARK whilst house-sitting at Nick G's house all alone. There are clips - poems and... could it be a cameo from a creature from his past!?!
154. Live March 2018
Once again - this episode is fixed to a specific date - so it might end up changing number. Ikk shares an anecdote of the time he first met an alien - Bettina answers some listeners questions and Yeti Uncle John has a shocking piece of news for everyone... In extra material Cromitty and Martin disagree as to which old Sutton Park should be shared with the listeners and so there are two clips!!
155. Travel Episode
Paul and the regulars discuss plans for travel and also favourite places that they have visited over the years.
156. The April Fool Episode 2018
Paul turns to his friend Brocante The Antiques Dealer in this episode - but is what he suggests a big April Fool's joke or in fact his latest plan for the future of THE SHY LIFE PODCAST??
In which Paul receives a letter from a long-lost relative called Algernon and Ikk has his peepers stolen by Nathan/Zap. All this and Dameus worries about his voice which is beginning to settle back to its more quavering form; is this going to effect both his career AND his love-life?
158. Return Of The Brompton Time Machine
This one has also brewing for quite some time - in fact I started work on it when we lasted visited Brompton Cemetery in early January 2017 and then recorded scenes with a number of guests throughout 2017; finally I'm ready to release it!
159. When Harry Met Yeti
Harry and Paul catch up and discuss a number of different topics...
160. Bettina and the robot butler
This episode sees Paul visiting Bettina only to find out that the house has recently become robotically automated; also Wifey Jo play a card game with Cuthbert.
### Radios and Reminiscences
Whilst Paul heads back onto local radio - Cromitty has picked out some more SUTTON PARK clips.
### A Poetry Anniversary
Last week I also recorded most of an episode that mentions the 2nd anniversary - but also celebrates 10 years of SHY YETI'S INCREDIBLE PIE-CRUST COLLECTION (2008).
### The Great Bingo Scam
Someone is rigging the bingo so that they win - is it one of the regulars or someone more sinister?
### Gordon The Crypt-keeper Returns
Mr Yeti feels bad about not involving Gordon The Cryptkeeper in the 2017 Christmas Special like he promised - but Gordon seems to be unaware of what month it is, so they begin work on a Christmas Show; it's all a bit awkward really!
Next time I'll be telling you about our next episodes of the podcast - one of them involves Ikk and his first experiences of show and the one after that involves quite a lot of grumbling! That's all for now...
Take care - more soon,
Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx
