THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 430:

BETTINA'S SUPER-DUPER BRAND NEW ROBOT BUTLER!

Here we are for episode 430! This time Bettina is finding lockdown life a tad hard; living in a big house without any of her usual staff - Cuthbert comes to the rescue... Is almost seems to work too good to be true... could trouble be lurking somewhere in the wings?

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 431:

GETTING COMIC WITH JAY AND RYAN!

Here we are for episode 431! This time we chat again with Jay The Hauntcub and Comic-book Ryan; two guests who have featured a fair few times - who have a lot in common, but who have never met on the show before! We talk a lot about comic-books - and Paul presents a number of quizzes; Yeti Uncle John is also around to stick his nose in! We also have a Spring 1997 Sutton Park clip which follows on from the one in our last edition! It's all good fun - but there are definitely some technical hitches along the way! Paul blames the weird quiz sites that he has selected, but it may just be that he is incompetent. Listeners, you decide! Our next episode, #432 sees us catching up with a former guest of the show who we've not spoken to in quite some time... We'll keep it a secret as to who - but we CAN reveal that he and Paul will be chatting about the big hits of 1995 on both sides of the pond! Do join us, won't you?!

APPRAISING APRIL...


Hello beasties!

First up, Paul and Nick head back to their childhood's to discuss a magazine that they both enjoyed! 

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 423:

LOOKING IN ON "LOOK-IN" WITH PAUL AND NICK!

Here we are for episode 423! This time on the show we head back to 2020 to share with a show that we saved from one of our mega recording sessions during the summer. Nick is back and we're discussing a magazine that was part of many of our youths here in the UK... it was called Look-In and it was about TV, music and all sorts of goings on! Listen as we share our memories of it during the 70s and early 80s. Our next edition will be episode  #424... and we're still not completely sure what we're hoping to release next! You'll just have to wait and see! Until next time then!! 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.

Our next episode this blog-post was what was originally our March Chatterbox episode, which ended up getting promoted to the position of Easter Special because it took a while to edit...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 424:

SHY YETI'S CHATTERBOX - SPRING-ISH SPECIAL!

Here we are for episode 424! Shy Yeti's Chatterbox is back... and yes, it is a little late... It should have been our March edition - but it's been promoted to the position of Spring Special instead... Nobody will mention it though because they didn't know when it was recorded and Easter / Spring is barely even referred to... Shhh... Just enjoy the episode, can't you!? This edition we discuss the TV that was big in 1971, including one of Mr Yeti's favourite actors. There are also a couple of flashbacks to earlier episodes along the way! We also have a great line-up... Andrew and Lisa from Round The Archives, Martin Holmes from Vision On Sound, Toppie Smellie from The Smellcast - not to mention our own show regulars Yeti Uncle John and Cromitty! Our extra material features chat between Wifey Jo and Calum, plus a brief out-take from our recent show number 419, also starring Mister Smellie; not to mention a quick dip into the archives. Our next episode, #425 sees us catching up with Yeti Uncle John's latest hobby...

Next up - Yeti Uncle John is back with a new hobby and further yeti mischief!

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 425:

YETI UNCLE JOHN - MAGPIE-FANCIER!!

Here we are for episode 425! This time we join Paul and the gang as they face-up to Yeti Uncle John's latest craze... Magpie-fancying! It's like pigeon-fancying only far more dangerous - not to mention much flappier and squarkier! It has to be said that there is definitely some doubt, based on previous experience, that this new venture is going to end very badly... but we'll just have to listen and see, I guess! This episode we also have some Sutton Park clips from June 1996 (#1422-1424) which feature Trowby getting extremely cross with Paul... It does seem that Paul probably deserves it, though, to be fair! Our next episode, #426 sees us catching up with Martin Holmes again to discuss the big hits of 1967 on both sides of the pond! 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.

May is here now and we have lots of new episodes in the pipe-line!

Anyway - take a look at what else we have in store...

During A Visit Jay and Ikk are able to communicate with Jay's eight-legged family member... but that is just the beginning of the surprise! (She is also good at quizzes!!)

(**) 438. Nick And Paul's TV Chat! (A Flashback To September 2020!)

With Toby busy with work and Paul spending all hours editing podcasts, things have gotten a little untidy during lock-down and so 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 shoveling every last thing into a bin bag...

For that matter will Cuthbert make it through the night!?!
