My exams – or ‘alternative assessments’ – are now over, so I found some free time, at last! Recorded near the start of the lockdown, in cup 5 my guest Jimmy and I talk a little about life in Toronto and play a rather self-explanatory game called What am I talking about? which actually wasn’t that straightforward. But, let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be, would it…?
Cup 4 is the overflow stuff from the last episode - yes, we really did record so much! Listen to the rest of the Welsh maraca game and hear João talk about Asturias (for a bit). In a surprising turn of events, the drink in the title comes from my guest - a Twinings English Breakfast Tea, drunk late after the watershed.
This one was well worth the all-nighter... 😁
The third cup brings together two people who haven't spoken in yonks. João and I discuss bourbon(s) (creams) and Asda Smart Price meatballs, and play another game with maracas that had to be cut short and shoved into another episode because we were going on for too long! Today's coffee - an intensity of 8 - comes from Taylors of Harrogate, who describe this coffee as "a big, beautiful Brazilian roast, like sinking your teeth into a hazelnut praline."
Goodness, he's only gone and done it when you all thought he'd given up or forgotten about it! Cup 2 is a Kazaar, a very strong (12) brew made with both Arabica and Robusta beans. Rachael is his guest - join them as they talk a bit about languages and play a game based on products from Ikea.
Cup 1 is an Envivo Lungo of intensity 9 on the Nespresso scale. Join Keoni and his guest Jasper Hubbard as they discuss supermarket value brands and play a game involving maracas. What a way to start the series!
A new opportunity to waste some time. Sip by Sip is a series where I drink some coffee and probably talk a bit about it.
The first episode comes out soon - be sure to tune in!
There seems to be no good news in the world at the moment.
The biggest "music" celebration of the year has been cancelled, so the only thing to do now is cry, right?
Then, what should I do to compensate? Well, organise a week full of Eurovision specials, of course!
A Voice for Radio: Eurovision Week - coming soon to Xtreme Radio
Spot the Windows Notification Sound is now available to listen to again on Expluce Player!
Returning - after three years! - is the one-off that really should've been just a one-off! Premiering Saturday 1st February 2019 is Keoni Unboxes... episode 2!
Join me for an exploration into (really!) slow "TV" where I unpack a multipack of packing tape! I also do something with the tape to pad out the video a bit!
But, whatever you do, please don't watch it when it comes out - it's a waste of everyone's time!
