SOME EXCITING NEW EPISODES!!

FEBRUARY INTO MARCH...

Hello beasties!

This time we'll be looking at the SHY LIFE PODCAST episodes released during February 2021...

First up we have some "new" (unedited) Sutton Park clips for you from June 1996; they do over-lap a bit and don't necessarily start at the beginning of episode - but there is some very silly moments with Trowby, Paul and Jay and some bizarre activity involving Haggis on Pepperbox Hill...

SUTTON PARK - 1422-1424: https://youtu.be/y8TE5kAjCmI

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 409:

LOOKING BACK WITH TOPPIE AND NICK!

Here we are for episode 409! This time Paul, Nick and Toppie discuss their memories of some very 70s and 80s things; what they remember - what they miss - what they don't miss and much much more in-between! We also have a very 90s thing too - yes, Cuthbert introduces another Sutton Park clip from 1994 - which follows on from the footage that featured in our last edition. Our next episode, #410 sees the welcome return from our Canadian friend, Comic-book Ryan... If you hold on to the very end of the episode you may even hear a little prelude to our next show too!
