What have been the highlights of 2018? What was Helen's most embarrassing moment? How do you use anal sex to get out of cooking the turkey? We answer all these questions and more in our bumper Christmas podcast! Joining us on the couch are Nurse Jessie and Steve Hill, as is the custom. They can get very lonely at this time of year. We hear all about Steve's book, The Card, which is out now and makes a great gift for anyone who likes football and/or laughing. Then it's time for a new feature - the inaugural Scummy Mummy Awards. We discuss our favourite movies, podcasts, TV shows and snacks of the year. Things take an unexpected turn as we learn more than anyone ever wanted to know about how Helen and Hill enjoy their special alone time. Ham Review returns, of course, and we have some Scummy Mummy Confessions too. We have lots of thank yous! Cheers to hellocheese.co.uk for sending us the cheese that was so delicious we couldn't be arsed to share it with Jessie and Steve. Thank you iheartwines.co.uk for the champagne, and for giving away loads of fizz to the winning Queens of Scum at our live shows. Merry Christmas to stateofdisarray.co.uk, who make the world's best catsuits. And finally to thephoenixcomic.co.uk, who are currently offering four issues of their brilliant comic for £1. We love you guys. Thank you most of all to everyone who's listened to the podcast this year, and to everyone who's emailed to tell us how they feel about it. We can't tell you how much it means to us. We have a few more shows this year - catch us in Brighton, Cambridge, Winchester, Bath, Milton Keynes and Hertford. Then in 2019 we are on our way to Colchester, Sheffield, Barnsley, Kettering, Hackney, Chipping Norton, and more...
