THE SHY LIFE PODCAST

This is THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - each episode provides a glimpse into the slightly batty and bizarre world of Mr Shy Yeti. You will meet his friends, hear tales of his life in the library, travel with him as he gallivants about - and if you're good he might even read you one of his daft poems!

Here we are for episode FORTY FOUR and this time Mr Yeti looks back over 2016 (well, since late May!) to review the many episodes that have already been released of THE SHY LIFE PODCAST, so far... There are clips from every episode and pretty much every guest - so it's a good one to listen to if you've never heard an episode of the show before or would like a reminder! How time flies!! Our next episode, number 45 - is our new year episode and there really is a lot going on! We'll be talking to some of our guests about what they like to get up to on New Year's Eve - but there is also Cromitty's nefarious plotting to undermine. Could this be the very last episode of THE SHY LIFE PODCAST??? Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. This episode and all contents are Copyright Paul Chandler, 2016.
