We have entered the July 2010 episode as our sample podcast, as well as having a great high profile guest (Rick Wakeman from Yes) we feel this a very typical of our output. It was certainly a show we enjoyed recording and feel it will give us the best shot at being nominated... not that we need to sell it to you, it's all up to the panel of judges now!

You can help though by spreading the word of the podcast, if you have not listened before then give it a go (the edition we have put forward is a good start, or try our most downloaded episode with film critic Mark Kermode.

Thanks for all your support in the last year, Neil and Dave will be getting together to record February's episode in the next few weeks, and don't forget to give us your feedback at

Words Fail Me Podcast 13 - Jan 2011

Happy New Year!

To celebrate the new year join Neil and Dave as they crack open the bubbly on New Years Day and discuss another page of the dictionary.

The inaugural podcast of 2011 features special guest dictionary opener Robin Ince. Neil chats to Robin about books, the contents of his bag, science and Razorlight.

An interesting page to start the year prompts conversation about Gaelic football, Gags (of all types), an unusual definition of gangster, going into space, and Dave tries to invent his own theory while we both get a bit tipsy (at 10am in the morning!).

As usual you can find the new podcast here on Podbean, or do a search for Words Fail Me Podcast on itunes.

Thanks to all our listeners in 2010, we had over 1200 downloads, lets double that in 2011!
