 Episode 114: The Curse of the Colonel | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:27:05

Why are baseball team curses so prevalent? Luke and Pete wonder that as they learn all about The Curse of the Colonel, a superstition that combines baseball team Hanshin Tigers, KFC, and the bottom of a river. During this episode we also learn of a frankly bizarre marketing ploy by the good people at Ribena, hear all about clown phobias, and welcome a long overdue return for Mencarta centred around a man that had no fewer than seven near-death experiences.

 Episode 113: I'm a locksmith, and, I'm a locksmith | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:39

Hello everyone. Strap yourselves in because Pete is back from Japan with more tales of getting run over, seeing the tallest Japanese man he's ever seen and trying to stay on the plane to watch the end of a film. We also try to solve the Zimbabwean Fruit Mystery, wonder over a case of mistaken identity after a listener bizarrely suggests that Luke and Pete actually go drinking together (would never happen), and chat a tiny bit more about Pink Floyd. There's plenty of your emails too, and lots more besides. Get involved, Trev!

  Episode 112: Weetabix? Or Shredded Wheat? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:27:23

Hello again, it's lovely to see you! Hope your week's going well.  Allow us to try and brighten it up a bit with half an hour more conversation between two manchildren, punctuated by your stories, suggestions and observations. This time around, there's a lake on the top of a mountain in India with a load of skeletons in it, so we discuss the nature of death and how it affects us, Pete entertains the idea of having his own personal daemon, and we wonder why the people at Weetabix thought it was a good idea to use skinheads to advertise their product (clue: it was the 80s).

 Episode 111: Two frogs in a sock | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:32:18

Did you know the number 111 is unlucky in cricket? You do now. We talk about that on this episode, and lots more. Lots more like: - Eating raw chicken out of politeness - Interviewing Hans Zimmer but forgetting to press record - The finest double agent of the Second World War Listen in to hear Luke and Pete, like two frogs in a sock, wrestle their way through half an hour of unplanned nonsense.

 Episode 110: Helping someone obtain a chicken mask | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:28:34

Pete packs today's episode full of startling revelations including helping a woman in the street with a badly needed item, a very particular type of dream, and his own very sensitive familial situation. None of this is related to an elephant whip he was suitably impressed by in Zimbabwe either. You'll need to listen to find out more. We also take a quick excursion to the Faroe Islands courtesy of a listener, reminisce about our first beer, and hear all about the effects of fig rolls, courtesy of yet another parental lie.

 Episode 109: Tape based solutions | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:33:53

109 is the atomic number for meitnerium, and don't you ever forget. Got it? Good. Now that's out of the way, let's all listen to chat from Pete about his recent visit to Zimbabwe, and let's all wax lyrical about musical subjects including Prince, Jeff Lynne, Pink Floyd and, just to keep Pete happy, punk. Elsewhere there's chat about who's got the deepest voice, prizes to be won on Bullseye (again), some emails about mystery energy drinks and yet more parental lies. What fun!

 Episode 108: Stevie Trousers | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:15

Let's talk weightlifting, let's talk Wario, let's talk a mystery man from Nicaragua who is changing currency on a bus (much to the confusion of one of our listeners), and why is Pete staying in a budget hotel in a rough part of Portsmouth? Elsewhere, there's confusion between US and UK shower setups, and we hear more call centre-based tales and obviously much, much more...

 Episode 107: Holloway Road shops I admire | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:31:37

Could Pete Donaldson or Luke Moore ever run an Ironman Triathlon? I think we all know the answer to that already but let's explore the prospect anyway.  During this episode we also run the rule over Pete's finest parody songs (and you'll be forgiven for not knowing they exist), Jim Bowen's contribution to TV, magicians, Tintagel Castle (again), and swords. Yes, swords. To buy us a sword: hello@lukeandpeteshow.com ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

 Episode 106: A straw-based Godzilla | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:29:20

This time around on your all-new edition of The Luke and Pete Show, we're talking queueing, we're talking fetid herring, we're talking Foo Fighters, we're talking listeners emailing us while high, we're talking everything guys. It's a jamboree. The Wicker Man also makes an appearance, as do Netflix-based crime documentaries and Nordic travel, so as ever there's something for everyone. Don't skip it.

 Episode 105: Biting a kidney | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:34:52

Welcome back to The Luke and Pete show, where your two eponymous antiheroes wait in situ to waste another 35 minutes of your time. It's tough work, but someone's got to do it. This time around, it's a protein-heavy edition as Pete tucks into eggs and spinach while talking about diets. After that an actual real-life doctor gets in touch to discuss the best way to transport and transplant a kidney (clue: don't take a bite out of it), and then we get into the realms of Jurassic Park with a live orchestra, the absolute state of some of the things dinner ladies used to serve up to school kids, and a legend of The Luke and Pete Show finally gets in touch. Don't miss it!

  Episode 104: Clowning about | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:17

Remember when that guy swore at his mum during Christmas dinner? Well, another listener gets in touch with a similar bout of behaviour along the same theme, while another is getting stuck in an isolated toilet block in eastern Europe. Meanwhile, a man is hit in the face by a seal carrying an octopus, a listener has a present from NASA brought home from work by father, and Pete has been taken aback by a hotel in Macau. Just the usual then, something for everyone. And if none of that takes your fancy, stick around for chat about the great heavyweight champion Jack Johnson, and an 80 year old Japanese DJ (separately).

 Episode 103: Antibiotics from India | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:31:25

A man has attempted to flag down a plane at Dublin airport, and miraculously, that man is not Pete Donaldson. He is however on hand to comment upon it, as well as many other issues including rappers eating too many Cheetos, kidneys being transported for transplant, and how much he enjoyed his parents' recent trip down to see him in London. We also welcome a return for Crisp Andy, revisit the famous shower curtain debacle with a man that knows his onions, and marvel at Pete's resourcefulness at purchasing medication from the internet.

 Episode 102: Jimmy White's brother | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:32:16

Welcome back! Pete decides that there wasn't quite enough complaining last time round for his rather dour tastes and so we revisit Room 101 (which I suppose for the purposes of this episode will have to be referred to as Room 102), including airport behaviour, lion poo, the downing of spirits and horrendous punk roustabout GG Allin. Elsewhere, there's Pete getting fed with tongs (again), and two frankly remarkable tales about crisps and Jimmy White's brother (separately).

 Episode 101: Tale as old as time | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:33:34

As we speed down the conversational highway past a century of Luke and Pete Shows, episode 101 is a chance to pull into the rhetorical lay-by and take some time to assess which things in the world our listeners truly hate.  That's right, in a format that is in no way ripping off a previously popular TV show, Luke puts all our listeners' gripes to Pete and the pathologically strange man decides whether or not they're worthy of entry into Room 101. Expect 3G mobile reception, Bono, Caffe Nero, Zooey Deschanel and much, much more to make an appearance.

 Episode 100: We actually made 100 of these shows | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:57

START THE FANFARE! It's time to celebrate our 100th episode! We do this by counting down the top five stories, incidents and discoveries of the past 100 shows, all the while finding it hard to believe we made it quite this far. Stay tuned for all your favourite moments (well five of them anyway), and in addition to that, as ever, Pete has a whole load to get off his chest including a remarkable segue into something that he witnessed at kids' camp when he was about 9 years old.  Thanks for all your amazing support over the last year and a bit! Here's to the next 100! To make the next 100 shows special we need you to email us stories and experiences from your life.
