Episode 22 – Stinky Pants!

All about food this one – recorded the day after the egregious Matt Hancock launched yet another celebrity chef-endorsed report into how rubbish catering is in hospitals, there’s yet more promises to feed everyone, while at the same time not feeding children or doing anything else even vaguely properly.

World Mental Health Day special get-together episode!

Finally your hosts have managed to record an episode in person! Ed went to Scotland for a wee break and managed to find Stuart next to a loch and, surrounded by our respective families, we recorded an episode for World Mental Health Day on Ed’s phone, complete with wind noise, spouses and children adding to the colourful atmosphere.

What’s the purpose of “mental health for all” when we can’t even look after ourselves? Don’t expect any answers…

Episode 21 – What is it now?

Your truculent attendants return with their unique brand of righteous rage and clinical comedy. Covid, inequality and more risible Hancockery.

Episode 20 – Yurt

Back with a brand new theme tune!

After an electoral hiatus, Ed & Stuart return with a new tune and less of an idea of anything that’s been happening in the real world.

What’s going on with pay and trades unions? What should we be doing as lefties and professionals? And what is Matt Hancock wearing?

All this and more in your brand new episode of RMN Behaving Badly
