To help you navigate this weeks episode some of you may well need a little help.

You see when you get a couple of blokes from loosely the same time, and roughly the same neighbourhood, and they get into a groove then they are going to drop in a few cultural references that are, for want of a better phrase, a little oblique.

So you might want to have the following nuggets of information to hand;

Basil Brush A children's TV character predominantly from the 60's & 70's. Basil was a Red Fox with a voice based around the actor Terry Thomas.

More about Basil

The Three Bees of Napoleon Not necessarily as described in the episode, but then again what is. Certainly a link between the three bees and the the infamous Emperor himself.

More about the three bees

Rod Hull & Emu Another puppet character (and puppeteer in this case) that transitioned from kids TV to light entertainment and chat shows. Generally remembered for leaving chaos in their wake, how apt.

Shure SM7B The recording microphone of choice for the Corona Diaries, and countless other podcasters, singers and content creators. No money changes hands between Shure and ourselves.
