RUMOURS OF NEW PODCASTS AND YETI-BOOKS...

IT'S APRIL IN PODCAST LAND...


Hello beasties!

This time we've got more episodes of the podcasts - photos and news on my forthcoming book that I am hoping to release LIVE during my Live Pride48 show in April (which is also Easter Sunday!)

First up though, here are our four most recent podcasts which take us through from late March into the first week or so of April; they're quite a diverse batch of shows too! 

(Who's that, then? That's me in an old Sutton Park episode... Don't worry about it! Read on!)

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 239:

ADVENTURES FROM THE YETI ARCHIVES! 

(CIRCA 1998!)

Here we are for episode 239! In a change to our scheduled episode, Cuthbert has questions for Paul about filming his show, "Sutton Park" back in 1998 - and once Paul gets started there is no stopping him! Our next episode, #240 sees us listening in on a fascinating conversation between Nick and his mum recorded back in April 2018. 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, Harry F and Luca. Sound effects by Paul Chandler. All content is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2019. Episode 239 was recorded on Saturday 23rd March 2019, with Sutton Park clips taken from episodes 2110-2120, recorded between 25th April to 1st May 1998.

This episode can be downloaded on iTunes, Acast, Podbean and also from Soundcloud at the following link:


Next up - a very special episode that we released in time for UK Mother's Day 2019...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 240:

MOTHER KNOWS BEST! 

(IN MEMORY OF PAM GOODMAN)

Here we are for episode 240! In the UK, as we near Mother's Day 2019, old friend of the show Nick Goodman chats with us in late 2018 and shares a conversation that he recorded with his mum on the 18th April 2018, just a few months before her passing in July 2018. Thank you to Nick for allowing me to use this interview. Our next episode, #241 sees us beginning the new month with an April Fool's prank - how will it all pan out!?! Do join us, won't you?!

Next up - we enter April with a bang by looking into the future to see what is and isn't there! This one went under the alternate title of CROMITTY AND THE CRYSTAL BALL for a while - but when it came time to release it I reverted to the working title as it had actually been referred to in the episode.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 241:

WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS... 

(APRIL FOOL'S DAY 2019)

Here we are for episode 241! Cromitty offers Paul the chance to look into his crystal ball to see what might lie in store 10 years ahead! Things may not be what them seem, of course - but what will Paul say when he finds this out? What might the future hold in store!?! Thank you to all our special guests this time around - I don't want to give their names away as it's all part of the surprise - but they know who they are! Our next episode, #242 sees us heading to Venice for the first of two visits - this time I'm sharing a diary episode that I recorded back in March. Our second Venice episode we will save for later in the year... Do join us, won't you?!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF SHY YETI



It's lovely to finally be able to release this collection - as I've been working on it for four years - over some pretty trying times in my yeti-life; although since May 2016 things have been made a lot more cheerful thanks to the arrival of THE SHY LIFE PODCAST... I'm intending to launch the book on my live show for April 2019 - and I'll probably read a few pieces from it during the show too...



Next time we'll be sharing with you a script from a forthcoming episode of the podcast - which should be out around the time that the post is released!

That's all for now...

Take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx

SHY LIFE PODCAST SHOWS...

COMING SOON!!

It's April! Our schedule list does tend to change every time I post, but right about now this is a pretty good guide to the episodes that we are hoping to release over the next few months; not to forget our monthly LIVE episode! Anyway - take a look at what else we have in store...

Anyway, here is our current schedule!

243. The Ghost Of Gladstone Villa

This time we discuss a true-life ghost story that Paul recently received from his old friend Andrew D. - the story is shared and the regulars chip in with their opinions... It's a scary little show!

244. The Day Shy Yeti Lost His Voice

Paul has been asked to sing his friend Harry's song as a big concert - it's scary enough that it's going to be live, but now he's lost his voice! Can Ikk and the gang help him get through it and will anyone notice if they pull a few lip-syncing tricks!?

245. Stop! 1980... Beams Are Going To Find You!

Paul and Nick discuss the big hits of 1980 and also jump a few years forward to compare two of the biggest bands of the mid to late 1980s who are still around making new music in 2019!

246. LIVE Pride48 Show - April 2019

It is Easter Sunday and Paul is about to launch his new book, PIECES OF SHY YETI with help from all those in the chat-room!

247. Stories Of Deadiegrams

The regulars share their memories of times when they have encountered Deadiegrams in odd situations.

248. Charlie Grrr and The Pie With The Pastry Plumage!

If all goes to plan with a trip to Venice in May then I plan to a record a pie-related giallo spoof with Charlie Grrr and some of the other regulars! I can promise that it'll be super silly.

249. The Will Of The People

There is bad feeling in Shy Life Podcast-land when a light-hearted popularity contest to celebrate 3 years of the show goes badly wrong and the results are declared as "the will of the people"! Is this true or have the results been rigged!?! Ikk also recalls when time travel was almost used to fix the results of the Big Fatty Online Number 1 Fan contest!

250. LIVE Pride48 Show - May 2019

Mr Yeti celebrates 3 years of the show in our live Pride48 show for May 2019!

251. Shaken Not Stirred!

The first of three 10 year poetry anniversaries for Mr Yeti during 2019.

253. Shy Yeti Is Making His Mind Up!

Paul and Nick discuss the big hits of 1981 in both the UK and the US!

### Additionally:

There will - most probably - be live shows every month; but we also have plenty of other episodes either in planning or partially recorded. 

### A Bad Case Of The Pickle Hollows

Cuthbert accidentally downloads a free Pickle Hollow app whilst downloading old episodes of The Smellcast and although it starts off kinda cute it gets old very quickly when random voices from the show start to fill the air. How do they delete it? Can Toppie help?

### The Shy Yeti and Toppie Smellie Comedy Hour... And A Bit...

Mr Yeti and Toppie Smellie team up to entertain the listeners with their very own brand of mad-cap comedy! What more could one ask for!?

### The Dragon And The Cacti!

Paul and Yeti Uncle John check in on Dragon Albert to see how he is getting on with Bert and Gert; John presumes that it will be a bit of a rescue mission - but they are both shocked by all that they find!!

### The Truth About The Murder Mystery Weekend!

It has taken a while but now we finally seem to have some answers about what ACTUALLY happened at the Murder Mystery Weekend back in October 2018 and the answers are REALLY going to shock you!

### The New Caretaker / "Where's Me Booook!?"

What with Yeti Uncle John often being up in space - Bettina gives Paul the details of a caretaker who used to work on her Estate... It seems like a good idea until it becomes evident that this gentleman swings from being extremely lazy to shovelling every last thing into a bin bag... What ever will happen when he reaches the basement and finds all the tat in Cromitty's laboratory; what will happen to all those priceless Sutton Park tapes? For that matter will Cuthbert make it through the night!?!

### The Return Of Dameus The Interviewer

Dameus interviews all manner of podcasting celebrities as part of his return to the chat-show circuit.

### Re-connecting With The Past

Paul catches up with Cromitty and Martin and is excited to learn that Cuthbert has a few added advances that makes it possible to re-connect with the past via old episodes of SUTTON PARK... Ikk is slightly doubtful about it all - but he and Paul soon get to experience the process first-hand.

### Whatever Happened To Dusty The Scone-Eating Dandelion!?

Paul and the team receive a tip-off about an elusive acquaintance of theirs - Dusty The Scone-Eating Dandelion who went missing under mysterious circumstances some time ago... Will they be able to find him with the help of Martin and his detective pals!?

### 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.

### The Great Bingo Scam

Someone is rigging the bingo so that they win - is it one of the regulars or someone more sinister?

### The Continuing Mystery Of Long Lost Cousin Algernon

A number of episodes that involve Martin's investigation into Long Lost Cousin Algernon. What will he find?

### Brocante Saves The Day?

Bettina needs to sell some of her treasures and Brocante The Antique Dealer is called in - but can he save the day?

### Gordon The Crypt-keeper In Need!

Gordon is back - but he has recently lost his job! Mr Yeti does his best to try and help him out...

### Shy Yeti And The Ridiculous Sponsor!

Paul and Toppie Smellie do a show together - but thanks to interference from Paul's new manager they have to keep stopping to do live adverts for the ridiculous sponsors they've been set up with!

### More About The Alien Book

We learn a little more about The Alien Book which made Ikk so unwell at the start of the year - but, of course - things are never simple.

### Caveman Logic and The Shy Life - 10th Anniversary shows

The second and third of three 10 year poetry anniversaries for Mr Yeti during 2019.

### Bits And Bobs and Bobs And Bits - Mk 2

More clips from the archives and recent conversations that don't have a home!!

### Behind The Scenes - Fiction Within Fiction!

Paul looks back at how he used to film Sutton Park behind the scenes on some of Nick's films - with clips from both Tide Of Freedom and Evil Trophy and the equally as dramatic Sutton Park episodes recorded during these productions.

### Shy Yeti's Cornish Adventure!

We join Paul and Toby as they head down to Cornwall for a week's holiday. However Paul has got a new manager who wants him to do more adventurous pastimes! (Recording mid-May 2019)

### Shy Yeti Gets Back To Scotland!

We join Paul and Calum as they head back to Dunbar for a few days away. Paul's manager is keen that Paul should learn more about the private life of Nessie! (Recording late-July 2019!) 

### Shy Yeti's Summer Retreat!

Paul heads back down to Kent for a week of creativity! Paul's manager wants him to stir up trouble to get more ghosts on the show!(Recording mid-August 2019!) 

### Shy Yeti's Three Birthday Treats!

Paul reflects on three treats that he had for his recent birthday - involving activities with Nick concerning Paul's manager, the usual silliness with Toppie and a trip away with Jay and Ikk; all these treats are quite unusual to say the very least... 

### Shy Yeti's Birthday Diary 2019

Paul shares his birthday diary with the listeners as he and Toby head off into the wilds of the UK for his birthday! Things are getting out of hand with his manager and Paul has some very shocking news! Can Mr Trowbridge be of any help?

Hello beasties!

I'm back from my holidays this post and am ready to share some adventures - not to mention a number of the photos that I took whilst I was away; although  will save a few for when the new Venice episodes are released.

Anyway - as I mentioned briefly at the start we're not long back from yet another trip to Venice (well, it was my 7th visit, but Toby's first...) I was last there for my birthday in November 2016 (and we recorded a couple of episodes back then) and last in Italy in November 2017 when the show headed for Verona and Lake Garda... (Although there's a quite COMPLICATED story about what happened there!)

Before we conclude - here are a few more of my Venice photos - there will be more next month when I get around to posting the episodes that I recorded over there last week...


Next time I'll be telling you about my new book - due out very soon...

Ciao for now!

Take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx

SHY LIFE PODCAST SHOWS

COMING SOON!!

Here we are - it's March already! Our schedule list does tend to change every time I post, but right about now this is a pretty good guide to the episodes that we are hoping to release over the next few months! Anyway - take a look at what we have in store...

Anyway, here is our current schedule!

### Additionally:

There will - most probably - be live shows every month; but we also have plenty of other episodes either in planning or partially recorded. 

### Charlie Grrr and The Pie With The Pastry Plumage!

If all goes to plan with a trip to Venice in May then I plan to a record a pie-related giallo spoof with Charlie Grrr and some of the other regulars! I can promise that it'll be super silly.

### The Day Shy Yeti Lost His Voice

Paul has been asked to sing his friend Harry's song as a big concert - it's scary enough that it's going to be live, but now he's lost his voice! Can Ikk and the gang help him get through it and will anyone notice if they pull a few lip-syncing tricks!?

### The Will Of The People

There is bad feeling in Shy Life Podcast-land when a light-hearted popularity contest to celebrate 3 years of the show goes badly wrong and the results are declared as "the will of the people"! Is this true or have the results been rigged!?! Ikk also recalls when time travel was almost used to fix the results of the Big Fatty Online Number 1 Fan contest!

### The New Caretaker / "Where's Me Booook!?"

What with Yeti Uncle John often being up in space - Bettina gives Paul the details of a caretaker who used to work on her Estate... It seems like a good idea until it becomes evident that this gentleman swings from being extremely lazy to shovelling every last thing into a bin bag... What ever will happen when he reaches the basement and finds all the tat in Cromitty's laboratory; what will happen to all those priceless Sutton Park tapes? For that matter will Cuthbert make it through the night!?!

### The Return Of Dameus The Interviewer

Dameus interviews all manner of podcasting celebrities as part of his return to the chat-show circuit.

### Re-connecting With The Past

Paul catches up with Cromitty and Martin and is excited to learn that Cuthbert has a few added advances that makes it possible to re-connect with the past via old episodes of SUTTON PARK... Ikk is slightly doubtful about it all - but he and Paul soon get to experience the process first-hand.

### Whatever Happened To Dusty The Scone-Eating Dandelion!?

Paul and the team receive a tip-off about an elusive acquaintance of theirs - Dusty The Scone-Eating Dandelion who went missing under mysterious circumstances some time ago... Will they be able to find him with the help of Martin and his detective pals!?

### 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 plays a card game with Cuthbert.

### The Great Bingo Scam

Someone is rigging the bingo so that they win - is it one of the regulars or someone more sinister?

### The Continuing Mystery Of Long Lost Cousin Algernon

### Gordon The Crypt-keeper In Need!

Gordon is back - but he has recently lost his job! Mr Yeti does his best to try and help him out...

### More About The Alien Book

We learn a little more about The Alien Book which made Ikk so unwell at the start of the year - but, of course - things are never simple.

### Caveman Logic and The Shy Life - 10th Anniversary shows

The second and third of three 10 year poetry anniversaries for Mr Yeti during 2019.

### Bits And Bobs and Bobs And Bits - Mk 2

More clips from the archives and recent conversations that don't have a home!!

### A Bad Case Of The Pickle Hollows

Cuthbert accidentally downloads a free Pickle Hollow app whilst downloading old episodes of The Smellcast and although it starts off kinda cute it gets old very quickly when random voices from the show start to fill the air. How do they delete it? Can Toppie help?
