Lucy returns to the podcast after three weeks away. She returns jet lagged (I know the feeling) and fails to count to three so her weekly round up is a week late. She then provides her usual knowledgeable commentary on the callers who are talking about the current week. No doubt she will have caught up with the rest of us by next week.
Special powers were revealed – Lucy can predict what other people will order from a menu and Judi Dench knows the time of day without looking at a watch and Jacqueline Bertho only gets lost in New Zealand but otherwise has a wonderful sense of direction!
Lucy admitted she had not listened to Man’s Hour either – but Roifield was pleased she was back even if working to a different week! Normality is promised for next week (whatever that might be).
Also the curious topic of “Max” came up. There has been some very clunky scriptwriting which has avoided the use of the a gender specific pronoun. One listener claims to have heard reference to “he” a couple of weeks ago but I am not so sure. We shall see.
And whilst I cannot reveal this week Helen has given Anna a little more to go on.
On this week’s episode we have calls from
Jacqueline Bertho who is a homing pigeon,
Michele who is feeling hopeless
Witherspoon who agrees with Roif
Blithe spirit who has sympathy with Anna Tregorran
Aunty Jean who thinks Pip has had a visit from the AI man
Goddess Deeva who still hates Rob
Julie from Pickering who thinks Pat missed a trick
