Here we are for episode TWENTY - and this time we're on holiday down in Kent for a week. Mr Yeti is enjoying his own company - spending time in the gardens and sharing some of his writing with the listeners... But something isn't quite right, people almost seem to look straight through him - he sees strange figures standing in the shadows and spiders leave webs in doorways.

Episode 21 - the second in this trilogy - should be posted later this month.

Our special guest is Erik From The Hysteria Continues Podcast - the podcast that got me into listening to podcasts in the first place! We mainly talk about horror films and the 80s - with a very special edition of Vinyl Vault!! Not only that but Mr Yeti takes you for a walk through Hyde Park and Kensington to have a little natter about what he's been up to and also has a quick chat with Calum...

Here we are for episode EIGHTEEN - and I have recorded probably the strangest and silliest episode yet! My brother, Graham and niece, Alena were visiting my parents and it gave me the chance to catch up with them. I'd not seen them for three years! Things all begin quite normally with a chat about horror films and music - but then suddenly things take an odd turn... Have you ever heard of the band, Bee-Bumble!? No... But you will do... Wanna try Alena's jelly-bean challenge! (I'd take care if I were you!) There is also a new prose piece from Mr Yeti, BUTTERFLY HONEY. It really is a bizarre episode, but fun, I hope!! Thank you to Graham, Alena for appearing on this show and also to mum and dad who also briefly cameo. I am aiming to get episode 19 of the show ready in the week or so!
