Podcast 255: This is our Everest, Part Twenty-Five – Out of Town

by | Nov 29, 2020

Today’s bucolic episode of This Is Our Everest sees Edward and Ian watch an episode of Out Of Town. There’s some extremely questionable and troubling content about the annual Appleby Horse Fair and then a sheep orgy, all of which leaves at least one of our heroes feeling particularly sullied.

But while Jack Hargreaves queries the sexual morality of the ewe, Ian is more worried about issues of consent and the general propriety of the whole sheep industrial complex. None of this is a problem for Edward, who lives in a make-believe Richard Scarry world and probably thinks the sheep live in houses and bake gingerbread men.

Meanwhile, Jack meets some members of the travelling community and learns nothing, something he is seemingly keen to pass along. Luckily, Ian is on hand to set the record straight. Was Jack Hargreaves’ house double glazed? Why was his shed so echoey? And why have we strapped an oil crayon onto Ian’s chest with a leather harness? Some or none of these questions will be answered in the next 40 minutes. You can watch the programme here.
