Hello beasties!

This week I'm going to tell you a bit about what I got up to over my birthday weekend and during my week off... At time of writing I've been away for a few days down in my little hidey-hole in Kent where I go to be all creative - to record podcasts and the like...


Here we are for episode 206 and it's our LIVE episode for November 2018. This time it's just Paul in the studio - with some help from old friends in the Chat-room and the pending arrival of Cromitty and Yeti Uncle John! Paul has a few clips and out-takes to play - some from recently released shows and some for forthcoming editions! This month our extra material features Paul's recent appearances on episodes of Big Fatty Online and Tastes Like Burning. Thanks to all my special guests this time and to BFO and TLB for allowing me to use clips from their recent shows. Our next episode, number 207 is the first of a trilogy of episodes about different aspects of what Paul got up to over his birthday week off recently - and yes, Toppie Smellie is back! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Sound effects by Paul Chandler. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2018 - except for clips from BFO and TLB which belong to their show's creators. Episode 206 was recorded LIVE on Sunday 18th November 2018, with extra material from recently released episodes and November 2018 recording sessions.

Here we are for episode 207! Yeti Uncle John has plans with Toppie Smellie and Aunt Tappie to surprise Paul with a birthday dinner -  but Paul seems more keen to have a quiet day in the country. Can he be persuaded that a more sociable birthday might actually be the order of the day!? As you might imagine... things do not go to plan! Thank you to my special guests this edition! Our next episode, number 208 sees Paul inspired to throw a party of his own back in London! Goodness knows what will happen this time! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show.

Next post I'll be sharing with you the next couple of episodes in this birthday series - and also a new version of HOT STUFF!! which has just become available...

Here are some more photos from my birthday... I won't do a diary this time as I did one as an episode of the podcast that will be out in a week or two. Also - my week mainly involved me recording interviews with special guests (some of who I want to keep secret for a bit!), going to Canterbury (once with Harry and once by myself to see the film "Widows") and watching box sets of old TV programmes (and recording my Dark Shadows review from Round The Archives; it should be out before the end of the month!) It was a good week...

In these photos you will see the flat in which I stayed... Birthday cake... Me and about... The Kent Countryside from a bus... and a cat! Hey! Deeley wasn't with me... Still, it's a cute photo!

Next time we'll be focusing on more podcast episodes recorded whilst I was away in Kent...

That's all for now! Take care - more soon, Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx


Here we are in late-ish November and there are plenty of episodes in store and we're constantly recording new shows for you! Our schedule list does tend to change every time I post, but this is a good guide! 

Anyway, here is our current schedule!

208. "Well, It's My Birthday Too, Yeah!"

### Additionally:

There will - most probably - be live shows every month; maybe even more than one closer to Christmas; but we also have plenty of other episodes either in planning or partially recorded. Some of these episode involve guests who I don't want to reveal until closer the time of the episode being released; so I won't add them to the list, as yet!!

### 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!?!

### If Poems Were Pies - 10th Anniversary

The first of three 10 year poetry anniversaries for Mr Yeti during 2019. There will also be 10th anniversary episodes for my books CAVEMAN LOGIC and THE SHY LIFE during  2019. I am considering "staging" them like my old Poetry Cafe shows and leaving in any bloopers etc. We'll see!

### 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...
