Episode 5 - Something About Bitches with Rob Wade

Tim and Rob try to escape from under the thumb this week but Tim has to get his son to sleep in the first part so Rob nearly does a one man show with the help of our live listeners; we talk camping and sleepovers as well as Tims difficult week whilst Rob has nightmares and night sweats and talks Ant & Dec. 

We are pleased to welcome this weeks guest Rob Wade from Emotionally 14 and The Crazy Train Podcast, we discover that we're all big fans of Michael Jackson but which album is best, 'Thriller' or 'Bad'? What do we think of todays chart music and Bon Jovi finally get inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame 

This weeks 'Beat The Intro' quiz has been made by one of our amazing listeners 'Henno' and then we review Paul Verhoven's Robocop from 1987. 

Please excuse the technical difficulties we seemed to have this week, bloody microphones.
