Podcast 245: This is our Everest, Part Fifteen – Open Door

by | Nov 19, 2020

On today’s community-minded This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian examine two episodes of the BBC’s Open Door from 1974. Public access television’s many faces are examined closely, particularly those dealing with issues of sexual health and anarcho-communist syndicalism.

Our heroes discuss the stark realities of being a volunteer answering telephones in a sexual health advisory drop-in centre, the future prospects for anarchy in the UK and finally establish once and for all the much- anticipated link between Jean Shrimpton, Al Pacino, Selma Hayek and Bob Hoskins. There’s fungus facts and Ian’s past life as a concrete salesman is put to some good use. If you want to join us in the Everest Free State, you can watch it all here.

Tomorrow’s podcast is an episode of Songs of Praise from 1977, so help us God.
