The Kitchen Is On Fire (general)

Our favourite two silly billies are back in The Garret and back on the chatbike, pedalling hard up a verdant hillside of....topics.

This week they lay out their predictions for the year, involving celebrity deaths, cocaine scandals, and flapjack consumption.

James makes a weird sauce, Sam survives a powercut in Waitrose and they nearly come to blows over how healthy one's life should be. In other yap wonders, they try and think of ten famous Belgians, consider whether George Reynolds will lose his virginity this year and they learn about Sam's father-in-law's penchant for wearing the shoes of dead men....

A note on this week's episode:

The bleeps previously used to represent George Reynolds, now do not. New Year, new TKIOF, he has earned the right for us to utter his name again. The bleeps now represent the names of people we may or may not be slandering....

Is this the end for one of these two idiots? Does the hairy monster one die? Tune in and find out.

James and Sam are still banging on about New Year. They are also pondering on maintaining some childlike wonder, Hassidic Jews at Chinese buffets and gummy potatoes. James has begun the new year smug, Sam has begun it by quitting nicotine. James's mother throws out a perfectly good DVD player, or does she???? Sam ate a mini pie in a supermarket with his brother, or did he????

She didn't, he did. Classic TKIOF good times right there.

I love you.

Goodbye.

Stuff is talked about. There is an audio glitch thirty five minutes in. They do not know what The Rock is cooking. James fears intruders. Sam spent the day at Magpie. They talk a lot about films. Wow. This was fun.

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.

Episode 114 seems to be themed, 'Sesame Street'-style around the letter 'M': James and Sam celebrate the fall of Mugabe and Mladic, consider a Magpie Book Club, Medieval feasting, and Charles Manson. Moving away from 'M', they consider Ed from Radiohead's new solo album, Nigella's new show, and get deeply into death and whether James is dead inside. James can't stop getting naked in public, Sam is unsure whether The Proclaimers are brothers or lovers and they both lose themselves in how to be PC when it comes to the hallowed parlour game "Here Stands A Post". As usual it's yet another stunning entry in the TKIOF genre.

Yet another classic of the genre, if the genre is standard TKIOF fare….and it is. This week the ‘PieBoyz start dry, then wet up their grim whistles with some crispy Albarino. They then tumble head first into a cupboard of grease to discuss Sticky Walnut and pickled celery. Win Butler from Arcade Fire is rude to Sam and James gets ‘seen to’ by that pesky Boozy Quack. There’s a lot of dull broth, fun with a gavel and Meatloaf: The Musical. Is this a bounty of chat? Damn right it is. It’s a veritable dry chocolate covered coconut bar of discussion, wit, intelligence and flat out mouth based sounds masquerading as speech. Or something.

Back once again in an at least vaguely similar fashion to a renegade master, it's James Of Ramsden and Sam Of Herlihy. Also in tow is Puggsley from 'The Addams Family' aka Ajax Of Kentish. This week the foolish fools discuss a long dead corpse, how to drill a carrot and ambergris. James is has incredible fitness levels, Sam is confused by time again and Ajax is wearing a rude teeshirt. All this plus Joey Trib, some somewhat serious chat about restaurant soft launches, and a lovely chat about broccoli. (Green not Barbara).
