Podcast 283: This is our Everest, Part Twenty-Nine – The World Disco Dancin’ Championship, 1979

by | Jan 28, 2021

On this week’s This Is Our Everest, your heroes get their glad rags on for the 1979 EMI World Disco Dancin’ Championships. There’s much discussion to be had about whether or not disco sucks (it doesn’t) and what the alternative might have been, which brings a sobering conclusion. Racism is, once again, roundly criticised after a particularly unfortunate interview with a blameless Japanese dancing superstar, the dreamscape is explored and Ian rejoices to discover the identity of the competition’s overall winner.

However, intrigue and tribulation awaits when Edward reveals his choice for next week’s podcast. It’s safe to say half of our panel were significantly underwhelmed. You can watch the 1979 Disco Dancin’ Championships on YouTube here.
