The discussion continues at the London Podcast Festival, as our guests Helen Zaltzman and John Hodgman return to talk through the second track from Rain Dogs. John’s stories about his London-cheese-based glory days give way to anecdotes from Helen concerning the secret burial of her grandmother, but the vibe is pretty much the same - a lot of hand-clapping games, riffs on host’s names, the condemnation of this show’s topic as "a big phoney" - the usual stuff.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Clap Hands, Rain Dogs, Tom Waits (1985)
The Clapping Song, The Clapping Song… and more, Shirley Ellis (2016/1965)
