Podcast 252: This is our Everest, Part Twenty-Two – Going for Gold

by | Nov 26, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian revisit everyone’s favourite trans-European quiz express, Going For Gold. It’s increasingly a relic of a forgotten era in UK-EU relations and our heroes try and pick through the finer points of the Maastricht Treaty to figure out why this might be. There’s talk of a giant quiz warehouse, Henry Kelly’s voting preferences and a suggested way for Dracula to enter the United Kingdom post 2021.

There’s up-to-the-minute news of exactly where Finland is and Ian points out once and for all where it all went wrong for the spirit of European togetherness in the British public consciousness. If you’d like to remember the way things were, you can watch the programme here.

Tomorrow’s podcast sees us take in the world of sport with Channel Four’s basketball coverage, from 1985.
