THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 547: UNCLE WARREN GETS THE GRAND TOUR!

June 24, 2022
Here we are for episode 547! This time Paul feels that Uncle Warren ought to be properly introduced to all the team now that he is a regular co-host; this happens but the two also chat about some more big years in British TV - this time it's the turn of 1976, 1985 and 1995! Also - not only do we have Sutton Park clips from the late 1990s, but it would appear that Warren has his fair share of admirers! Our next show, #548 sees us focusing on Yeti Uncle John who is experiencing delusions of grandeur - apparently everybody has been telling him that he's a genius!?! This can't be right, surely!?! Email us at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it. The music is by Shy Yeti, Muffleyontour and Luca.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 546: GUESS WHO… A VERY SPECIAL GUEST INDEED!

June 19, 2022
Here we are for episode 546! This time we have a very special guest - not only has he gifted us a lot of his music, of late - but he is indeed our Patreon! Yes, it's Muffleyontour and he's here to chat with Mr Yeti about all manner of subjects - from Dr Who to books they've both been reading and podcasts of the moment. They also have a chat about approachable podcasts and also the challenges of recording podcasts out and about - and Muffley is planning to send some recordings from his up and coming trip to Singapore! This also leads to a behind the scenes chat and a discussion about the music that Muffley has been making for his trip - and we hear two of these new compositions during the course of the episode! The regulars aren't in the best of moods - mainly because they feel excluded from the recording of this episode - how will Paul placate them!? Our next show, #547 sees Uncle Warren returning to the show and this time he gets to meet all of the regulars! Email us at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it.

Can he do it? There are also one or two other answers to August-related mysteries that emerge during the course of this edition! Thanks to everyone who helped out with this episode - especially Toppie Smellie and the Smellcast team. Our next show, #546 sees us speaking to big friend and supporter of the show Muffleyontour who joins us in the studio for a bit of a chat; although things don't go quite as smoothly behind the scenes as one might hope! Email us at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 544: PAUL AND NICK’S TREMENDOUS TV TIPPLE!

June 14, 2022
Here we are for episode 544! This time Paul and Nick discuss some films and TV shows over a glass or two... or three... of white wine! It's quite a mixed bag thematically too - avoiding the main-stream; from the late 70s Australian eco-thriller Long Weekend to the early 80s Italian attempt at an Alien sequel, Alien 2 - both Mr Yeti's choices! Following that we turn to TV and begin with Season 2 episode of Doomwatch (The Islanders from 1971), before moving on to the first episode of a 2010's sitcom called Spy, then Quest Of Eagles (Episode 1 - Sailor, 1979) and finally a season 4 Blake's 7 episode (Traitor, 1981). We also have Sutton Park clips from Spring 1998. Thanks to Nick and Aly for their help with recording this episode! Our next episode, #545 sees us helping Bettina out with an urgent request - to put together a documentary on August Evans in time for a forthcoming Awards show... with only 48 hours notice! Email us at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it.

June 11, 2022
Here we are for episode 543! Cromitty has been having strange dreams about jelly snakes - he is unable to sleep soundly and is tormented by his nightmares. What can it all mean!?! Are the Yoga Vampires targeting him again and if so how can he overcome their evil attempts to lure him into their dastardly blood-sucking ways? Cromitty seeks help from Paul - but also turns to Trowby, Toppie and Dr Quentin for advice. We also have a few Sutton Park clips from the seemingly never-ending episode 2000 and another quiz with Calum!

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 542: SHY YETI’S NOT REALLY VERY JUBILEE CHATTERBOX!

June 8, 2022
Here we are for episode 542! This time we are back for another episode of Chatterbox which was recorded over the Jubilee Weekend in June 2022 - and yet we barely mention it because none of us had been paying very much attention. Instead of discussing The Queen we return to chatting about the difference between UK and American words - consider spaghetti junction, drop in on old TV shows (many from 1970) and even pause to have a food and drink quiz! Paul is also concerned about Pooh Bear, Mickey Mouse, Batman, Superman etc. imminently falling out of copyright! We also speak with Calum about his jubilee plans, Yeti Uncle John causes a drunken scene and Lisa gets accidentally lost in time; you really don't want to miss that last one! Our next episode, #543 sees us following Cromitty into the lair of the jelly worm - as bad dreams begin to plague our scientist friend!

June 6, 2022
Here we are for episode 541! This time Yeti Uncle John is desperate for more recordings that he can send to Radio Dull FM to gain more yummy biscuits in payment and so he recruits Bettina to tell some of her dullest stories... There is one problem, of course - but you'll have to listen to find out what it is! We also have a quiz with Calum, recorded back in the Spring of 2021 and more from the movie length episode 2000 of Sutton Park... Our next show, #542 is our belated Jubilee Chatterbox which has very little to do with the actual Jubilee itself! Please join us if you can! Email us at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it. The music is by Shy Yeti, Muffleyontour and Luca.

Paul also discusses some of the books that he's been reading recently and Cuthbert shares some Sutton Park from 1998 and a new composition by Muffley! Thanks to Mama Yeti for her help with this episode! Our next show, #541 is all about more of the desperate measures that Yeti Uncle John and Ikk go to so that they can get more of those yummy biscuits from Radio Dull FM; this time Bettina Du-Pres is involved, but things don't necessarily go to plan... Email us at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it.
