IT'S SNOW JOKE, YOU KNOW...

MARCHING THROUGH THE SNOW INTO MARCH...

Hello beasties!

This week we've covered in snow - still, I think it's a good look - so let's celebrate it...

This time we have an especially snowy episode of the podcast which was recorded at the very end of February during a rather snowy week in Old London Town; although at time of posting in mid-March we have just had some more snow! It just can't keep away!!

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 151: IKK'S FIRST EXPERIENCE OF SNOW...

Here we are for episode 151 in which Mr Yeti invites Ikk to investigate the snow that has fallen upon London - Ikk is very excited about this as it is his first real live experience of snow! Yeti Uncle John and Cromitty are even sweeping the paths in readiness!! But Zap is also lurking in the Park intent to cause trouble. We also have an exclusive interview with Pride48's Adam Burns who was passing through London at the start of March and there is a clip of Paul on a recent episode of Vera Speaks... For Real!! Meanwhile, Martin has some Sutton Park clips to share and Bettina puts out a request for help from the listeners... It really is quite a busy show!! Our next episode, number 152 sees the return of show regular Nick Goodman and we discuss a number of things that we really don't like... Plus a few things we do. 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. Many thanks to both Adam Burns and Auntie Vera for their appearances on this edition of the show. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2018.  Episode 151 was recorded between 28th February and the 6th March 2018. This episode also includes a number of flashbacks to episodes of SUTTON PARK recorded way back in 1994.

Originally I had intended to recorded episode 151 out in Belgrave Square Gardens as during the morning there was plenty of fresh snow and sunny skies - but by lunch time it was snowy again and having only just gotten over a cold I decided to descend to The Library Podcasting Studios to record as much of the episode as possible; with external dialogue due to be dubbed over audio recorded outside. Annoyingly by the time I returned to the library it was sunny again and so I probably could have gone out - and the meeting that I thought I was attending (which had forced me to take an early lunch) was cancelled. Thankfully I'd been able to take a few sunny snowy photos that morning on my way into work and I'm about to share those with you now... Enjoy them - they'll be along in a bit!

I have no photos to go with this comment - but around the same time as the snow came - Adam Burns, Chief Supremo of Pride48 came to London and we had a quick chat whilst exploring The British Museum... Actually we just sat on the same bench for about 90 minutes just chatting! Anyway, we recorded and it was nice to finally meet. Adam was last a guest back in November 2017.

There has also been another episode out since episode 151...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 152: THINGS WE DON'T LIKE (AND SOME WE DO!!)

Here we are for episode 152 - which sees the return of show regular Nick Goodman and we discuss a number of things that we really don't like... Plus a few things we do.  There is also some chatter from the regulars - who have some rather odd dislikes... (What did Flying fish ever do to you!?!) There are also some more clips from SUTTON PARK. Our next episode, number 153 sees Paul house-sitting for Nick, whilst indulging in a spot of nostalgia...  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. Many thanks to Nick Goodman (and also to Aly) for their contributions on this edition. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2018.  Episode 152 was recorded between 3rd February and the 9th March 2018. This episode also includes a number of clips from episodes of SUTTON PARK recorded in 1994 and 1996.

Here are those photos of snowy London that I promised you...






















Before we go - here is an update of the episodes that I am hoping to present to you over the next few weeks/months; including one or two newer episodes that I've been working on...

SHY LIFE PODCAST SHOWS - COMING SOON!!

We have an interesting array of episodes coming up over the next few weeks of March - into April... In fact some of these will probably not see the light of day until May - the 2nd anniversary of the show! I think we've done pretty well to have produced so many daft episodes in such a short time...

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

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??

157. Peeper-napped

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.

Additionally:

### A Little Lie Down

During a busy week of podcast recording down in Kent, Mr Yeti pauses to catch up with the listeners whilst some of the regulars ear-wig from next door; Paul also shares a pre-recorded random questions chat with Nick from March 2018.

### 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!

Take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx
