Podcast 248: This is our Everest, Part Eighteen – Wartime Kitchen & Garden

by | Nov 22, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian take a jaunty trip back to World War 2, with Wartime Kitchen and Garden. Ian finds it difficult to see the appeal in yet another British thing crowing on about the war and isn’t even swayed by a plate of dried apple rings. Indeed, there’s even the risk that programmes like this one are going to spoil the war for him entirely.

Nevertheless, some important ground is covered: having already accurately described a pig, Ian learns about pig clubs and busts some common misconceptions about incest. Edward drops some egg science and attempts to find new ways to address toilet paper shortages. All of this, plus biltong, onions and a general reassessment of life in the early 1940s. You can join the experiment here.

Tomorrow’s episode of This is our Everest will be on an episode of Tomorrow’s World from 1984.
