TMR 184 : Aaron Franz & Uncle : Uncle (the Podcast)

“Hello everyone it’s Uncle what are you been thinking some”—Uncle

For this fortnight’s programme we are privileged to be joined by the co-hosts of Uncle (the podcast)—”the number one uncle-themed podcast online today”—namely, Uncle John and his nephew-in-law Aaron Franz.

Would it be accurate to call Uncle (the podcast) a comedy show? Close, but not quite right. Perhaps it’s more a podcast “happening”? Possibly, but still not quite satisfactory. Or maybe all such attempts at categorisation are doomed to failure. Perhaps Uncle (the Podcast) is just one of those things that you have to experience.

“Uncle is the star of the show. Originally from New York City, he has lived many places throughout the years and now resides in Orange, CA. This podcast is a fun way for Uncle to cut loose and talk about anything and everything. In addition to presenting an infinite amount of topics this podcast also features audio clips taken from Uncle’s daily life. Get to know Uncle by listening today.” (For show notes please visit http://themindrenewed.com)

TMR 182 : Alan “Howling Laud” Hope : The Official Monster Raving Loony Party

“Vote for insanity! You know it makes sense.”—OMRLP

We are joined by Alan “Howling Laud” Hope, the current leader of The Official Monster Raving Loony Party, for an entertaining—yet oddly illuminating—conversation on the history, aims and achievements of the UK’s most well-known unconventional political party.

In 1999, following the death of the party’s founder Screaming Lord Sutch—(who had led the party through its previous incarnations, such as “National Teenage Party” and “Go To Blazes Party”)—OMRLP members voted for their new leader, choosing jointly a cat called Cat-Mandu and his owner Alan “Howling Laud” Hope. Although Cat-Mandu died in 2002 and now serves as one of the party’s “spiritual leaders”, “Howling Laud” proudly continues as the UK’s longest-serving party leader.

Adeyinka Makinde trained for the law as a barrister. He lectures in criminal law and public law at a university in London, and has an academic research interest in intelligence & security matters.
