Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 36

February 21st, 2018

Episode 36 – what a wild ride. We spend a fantastic 90 minutes speaking with Mark Milbourn, coming to you from sunny Sway in Hampshire, England. Mark and the Bassman go all the way back to the early 1980’s, when they were members of Fat Profit, a popular local band. Mark is a singer, songwriter, deep thinker, and champion giggler. You’ve never heard so much laughter on T&TB.
Because we were Skyping with Mark across the pond, some of the audio isn’t quite the quality we would like, but we still felt the subject matter and the craic were worth a little imperfect sound. The three of us share a frank and thought-provoking discussion on religion and beliefs, sex and the dysfunctional Christian, and Mark and the Bassman take a stroll down memory lane with a few old jokes and war stories.
Teddy gives an update on the Audible version of Her Minder (read by none other than The God of Pod Evan Harris, who graciously sent her one of his reading bloopers). The Steampunk Cellar is open for business, and Teddy finally gets her way.
All this, along with the usual mélange of vintage commercials and jingles, interspersed with a plethora of cool music courtesy of Fat Profit’s glory days – get out your padded Miami Vice jackets and your espadrilles – it’s 1985 again!
