 Episode 67: A voice on a stick | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:37:06

On this episode of your all-new The Luke and Pete Show, we take time out to imagine what it would be like if The Pete wasn't 'a voice on a stick' but a BT engineer, sent out to make internet happen in your abode. Predictably, results are 'mixed'. After that, chat rapidly progresses into talk of Brian Blessed, what it takes to become a national treasure and presenters who in real life are shits, and of course plenty of stories from The Luke and Pete Show Community, including misbehaviour at school, the accidental and tragic death of a cat, and a dreadfully-timed erection.

 Episode 66: Do not exit your vehicle | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:34:25

School stories aplenty this time around as the great and good of The Luke and Pete Show community deliver us some of their most cringeworthy tales, we try to separate art from the artist, and there's an opportunity to imagine a young Pete gaily skipping through a horse's field on the way to school every morning. And if that wasn't enough, we talk gorillas, farting (again), and possibly the worst parenting story of the year, involving a car, a toddler and a coalition of cheetahs. Seriously, we're ticking every box. Tell us tall tales here: hello@lukeandpeteshow.com ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

 Episode 65: Well, it used to be a dog | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:26:10

When is a dog not a dog? That's a burning question we answer early doors on episode 65 of The Luke and Pete Show, before Pete waxes lyrical about birthdays, birthday parties and the fascinating world of speedrunning of video games. The contributions from you the dear listeners this week extend to unkillable men, embarrassing farts and much, much more. Don't miss it.

 Episode 64: The prodigal son returns (to Hartlepool) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:37:51

This time around on your common-or-garden Luke and Pete Show, The Pete has been back to the motherland unannounced to see his dear old mother and to annoy his father with Tivo-based tricks. Meanwhile, Luke's been for afternoon tea, the boys show yet more love for the great Carly Rae Jepsen, and there's a listener reporting an erroneous shaving of facial hair. Elsewhere, a listener quite literally ruins Easter for a group of children and there's more curious French behaviour, this time from the 16th century.

 Episode 63: Abducted by Concorde | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:37:55

Pilot Neil is back in the Luke and Pete Show cockpit and he doesn't disappoint, the boys get excited about terrible 90s boy bands (most notably the great E-Male) and Pete reveals yet another remarkable childhood skill, arguably more impressive than eating frozen sausages and not dying. We also delight in emails about party tricks that have gone wrong, Pete's pet hate (ankles) and a Mencarta involving a mass poisoning in southern France.

 Episode 62: Little Pipples Donaldson | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:34:10

This episode contains all the S words: snooker, The Simpsons, and sex education. And speaking of the latter, a listener gets in touch with perhaps the most embarrassing, cringeworthy and awkward situation a young student could find themselves in. And, as is becoming a Luke and Pete Show custom, Pete reveals rather too much information about himself as a child. There's also time to hear from Detective George from Baltimore who gives his top stakeout tips, and we learn about what sounds like the world's best apple. How do you like them apples, huh?

 Episode 61: There's a toad in my suitcase, what am I gonna do? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:32:24

This time around we delight in some truly embarrassing school stories, including possibly the worst threat of violence ever and an ill-advised Nazi-themed tactic to impress a girl, we deliver a couple of well-overdue Duncan Bannatyne updates (one of which the doesn't show the big man in the best light) and we hear of a particularly hardy South African toad. Elsewhere, Luke's been to Munich, and in an unrelated issue there's a bit on everyone's favourite rodent - the humble (and massive) capybara. Why not share in this nonsense? hello@lukeandpeteshow.com to become an accomplice! ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

 Episode 60: A man in a rocking chair | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:32:42

Pete's been to the good ol' US of A and admits that he is essentially the worst travel companion ever, as well as recounting a frankly quite horrific story of his AirBnB involving a random stranger in a rocking chair. In addition to that we listen to some of your stories about, among other things, attempts to solve the now infamous Bo Bedingfield Mystery, a few more terrible band names, and a quite underrated story about Noel Edmonds. Again. You can't keep Edmonds out of this show.

 Episode 59: A hippo's dinner | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:32:21

Ever wondered what it's like to be swallowed by a hippo? Well, wonder no more as your boys have found a story of a man who experienced it. We'll be honest, it doesn't sound that nice. Also, everyone's favourite drill sergeant, R Lee Ermey, has sadly passed away, although that death wasn't hippo-related you'll be pleased to hear. And if that wasn't enough, there's more plane chat, including how you can still visit the cockpit, and we receive a missive about possibly the stupidest driver of all time. There's also a mystery to be solved, so listen out for that and send all your theories into hello@lukeandpeteshow.com ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

 Episode 58: The Mothpocalypse | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:26:58

Pete's been admiring Beyoncé from afar, Luke's been admiring Duncan Bannatyne from afar (again) and we settle the 'Can you land in a wingsuit without a parachute?' debate once and for all, courtesy of a stuntman. Elsewhere, giant moths v a tennis racket in a battle of wits for the ages, possibly the world's most terrifying sniper and lots, lots more. Don't miss it.

 Episode 57: When meat fell from the sky | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:34:26

This week, we hear more about not only school trips, but school visits from celebrities including a truly heart-wrenching tale about a listener that missed out on an encounter with Kriss Akabusi. There's also time for a truly depressing domestic tale, a *magnificent* mishearing of a school staple that you won't want to miss, and a weird period WHEN MEAT FELL FROM THE SKY.  Also, listeners to this damn show have started using our email address to sign up to wifi all over the world, something we naturally support and endorse. Keep it interesting though, yeah? There's only so many Virgin East Coast Trains emails we can realistically receive.

 Episode 56: Duncan Bannatyne and his favourite eggs | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:34:30

Still on a high from a visit to southern Italy, Luke's started reading Roberto Saviano's Gomorrah. Meanwhile, Pete takes a trip down memory lane and treats us all to his favourite Red Dwarf moments. Conversation then understandably takes a trip to the dark side courtesy of Craig 'Dave Lister' Charles' penchant for grumble mags and crack. Before we depart, we of course read out some of your missives, including one in particular about left-handedness, ruminate on what Duncan Bannatyne has been up to, and then open the creaking door to Mencarta to hear about a man who made quite a bad mistake at work, yet miraculously survived to tell the tale.

 Episode 55: Misplacing the Door to Hell | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:35:34

Our eponymous heroes, The Luke and The Pete, are back fresh from Naples and talking all things Italian (pizza, sculpted eyebrows etc) as well as car rentals, why Pete insists on recording the occasional podcast in bare feet - something that Luke finds completely unacceptable - and the strange Donaldson family trait of giving sausages at Easter in lieu of chocolate eggs. Elsewhere, there's Turkmenistan's Door to Hell and where not to find it, some clarification on transubstantiation, and dreams about Mr Blobby. Don't ask. Well do, and do it by emailing hello@lukeandpeteshow.com ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

 Episode 54: No! Not the bees! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:31:58

It's Thursday and that means it's time for more nonsense from the terrible twosome. Luke and Pete are coming in your ears this time around with talk of early memories, including another story about bees, and the worst inventions of all time.  Among all that, Luke tells us a delightful tale about old ladies in libraries, and we also get an update from the Dean at Cambridge after Monday's debacle on why Pete apparently didn't get into Peterhouse. After that, there's yet more horrific medical stuff from a currently serving doctor. You've been warned! hello@lukeandpeteshow.com is the place to send your missives, drop a letter in there and we promise you we'll read it. *Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

 Episode 53: Singing the Peterhouse blues | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:32:49

Pete's been hobnobbing with yet another celebrity, and then rants and raves about why he thinks he didn't get into Cambridge university (clue: it's not to do with his lack of intelligence); he really is becoming quite obnoxious. A tale of weird coincidence punctuates the It's Been section, and we firmly establish that Barenaked Ladies aren't American, courtesy of a lot of rather angry Canadians. Pilot Neil makes a comeback and is the subject of an angry challenge by another listener. This one could run and run, hopefully not off the runway entirely...
