SWEAR WORD OF THE WEEK:  Spitting Shit Balls


Just a quick email to say I love the show, and keep up the great work!
A couple of things though.
1.  I subscribe to your show via BeyondPod on my Nexus 4, I just wanted to make sure that by doing it this way, the subscription shows up in your stats?
2.  Even though I am an Android Man (N4 & N7 however I have a Retina MBP), I feel I need to bring a fantastic iOS app to your attention, its called InstaGranny and its by far the best 69p one of my friends has ever spent!! It allows you to edit your photos and stick some PhotoBomb-ing grannies onto your picture!!  Its amazing!  I feel proud that my friend used the iTunes gift card I gave him for his birthday to buy it!
3.  A couple of weeks ago someone complained that you had too much emails and voicemails just praising yourselves, I have one thing to say about that………..FUCK EM!!
Again, keep up the good work!!

Stewart from Aberdeen, Scotland!

Hi all. My name is David and I’m from Andover Hampshire which is in southern England as James will know as it’s not too far away only about an hours drive from where he lives which I think I’ve heard him say is Gosport. In fact I’m in Gosport as I write this, I’m a lorry driver so travel all over the country delivering goods and today I happen to be here, in fact James will probably know where I am if I said ‘Huhtamaki’ where I picking up a load of cups for Costa Coffee.
I’ve been listening to your show now for a couple of months and I’ve got to say how much I and also a mate of mine ‘Barny’ enjoy it and look forward to downloading it every week.
I had a HTC One X up until the Nexus 4 came out, the One X was a brilliant phone and in some ways I still miss it but the Nexus 4 also is great so I have no complaints.
Sorry I haven’t got a question or anything useful to share with you but I simply wanted to say hi from across the pond!
Keep up the good work guys.
