Podcast 234: This is our Everest, Part Five – Emu’s Broadcasting Corporation

by | Nov 9, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian watch Emu’s Broadcasting Corporation from November 1978. With our heroes already showing distinct signs of battle fatigue, only Emu could possibly bolster their spirits. Or so you’d think. They discuss the utter believability of Emu as a sentient being, tear Michael Parkinson a new one and ponder life as it was in 2007. Ian’s long-repressed fear of Billy Dainty is brought screaming back to the surface, while Ed suggests a classification and categorisation system for Milk Tray advert parodies. If you want to watch Emu in full flight, you can do so here.

For those of you who are trying to stay ahead of the game, tomorrow’s podcast will be on the 1980s cartoon series Bangers & Mash, and you can see the episode that we’ll be dissecting here.
