252: God, Fatherhood and Captain Birdseye with Olly Mann
What a Mann, what a Mann, what a Mann, what a mighty fine Mann - it's Olly Mann! The podcasting legend from Answer Me This, Today in History with the Retrospectors, The Modern Mann and many more joins us for a chinwag. We cover everything from the invention of home pregnancy testing kits to the shock of fatherhood, and who we'd rather have it off with out of Colonel Sanders and Captain Birdseye.There's a bit of serious chat as Olly discusses the sudden loss of his Dad, just six days after his son was born. He reveals the advice he gives to anyone grieving a parent about how to ensure they have a presence in their own children's lives. Then it's back to the usual nonsense as we share our Scummy Mummy Confessions and show off about our trip to Everest Base Camp. You can sponsor us via GoFundMe. And assuming everything goes to plan regarding the weather and the broadband connection, we'll be streaming our record breaking gig live via Twitch.tv/elliegibsongames - tune in at 9.45am on Wednesday 29 March, UK time (9.45am) *subject to change.For more from Olly and links to all his brilliant podcasts, go to ollymann.co.uk.
