The Kitchen Is On Fire

It’s bumper, it’s dumb, it’s full of come...all ye faithful. It’s the TKIOF Christmas Special 2017. A whole bunch of folk stop by*, Billy Ray Cyrus, a creepy lion, fan favourite Mrs Scroggins and Pulitzer prize winning journalist Jonathan Gold.

*are talked about.

Sam cracks a rib and is thrown under a bus by his wife. James smells brazil nuts somewhere he shouldn’t and has some sexy garlic themed banter with his wife. Our heroic Christmas hosts also find time to perform ‘Cav Nero: The Sitcom’, share presents with one another and discuss their favourite meals of the year.

Fill yer ears with this plentiful hamper of chat and seasonal goodies, learn just how wacky sides can get at the Ramsden’s Christmas table, wonder on the racism of hats and freak out when you hear exactly what James is willing to feed to a dog....

Greetings friend. James and Sam are back for another episode of fun, japes, chat and parlour games. How...warming it all is. This week Sam gets frisky in a hospice, James makes carbonara and things get a little serious when, once again, the spectre (cue falsetto..Spectre!) of gross dudes acting gross, is discussed once again. Hey gross dudes! The TKIOF-Two suggest, you keep the mouse in the house! Okay?!

Leaving that behind James and Sam crack on with mashed potato chat, duck cookery and 'Home Alone 2'.

Oh and there's also a wonderful cliff-hanger ending!

At this time of year, what more could want? How lovely. Seasons salutations to you ladies and gentlemen. Bye.

Is it small? No it is not. It is in fact a gargantuan beast of a pod featuring a second visit by the impeccable, implacable, impossible, Grace Dent! In an exclusive first chat following her cruel ousting* of Marina O'Loughlin as Guardian restaurant critic, Grace tells the TKIOF-Bros all about watching Hawkwind, a vampire, just how dreamy John Torode is and also opens up about her struggles to leave her giant L-shaped sofa. Sam backs Buble, whatever the cost. James has a beautiful voice. Sam and James abandon their dogs. Grace, James and Sam start a band. Plus, Grace plays the Geography Game, they all hang out at Claire Balding's house during the apocalypse and Grace Dent wonders why in all hell James and Sam would even bother to still record the podcast...

There is a pile of Sam, a stack of James, and enough Grace to fill every Premier Inn in the land. Three big names, one podcast, many topics. And a Lion Bar.

*this is untrue. Though it is an exclusive! That part is true. Honest!

Woo and indeed hoo! The SamSamMan and the RamRamMan are here spewing up episode 116 like a seabird feeding their young on a rocky outcrop somewhere...Thomas The Tank Engine, Frank Sinatra and Chick Corea are along for the 'ride'. James runs a long way in Florence and orders magnums of wine much to his pal's chagrin. Sam is hungover and does not look good. All this plus sunburned pigs, Bocca Di Lupo and the unique misery of sitting down in the shower.
