Luke's been to see Black Panther (spoiler: he enjoyed it), we hear another Stubbington Study Centre story which is even more bloody exciting than the last one, some amazing new batteries enter the game and, as ever, Pete is able to squeeze in some chat about video games.

 Episode 39: Fleeing from a neutron war and heading for Northampton | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:28:09

Rejoice! It's Monday and we're back for another half an hour of life-affirming nonsense from all over the world. This time around we fit in Valentine's Day activities, Pete's problems with the Winter Olympics and a truly amazing straw hat-related tale from a day at the cricket. There's also more old animals including one that is cheating, frankly, a brilliant pop hit to encourage people to visit a wonderful town in the East Midlands and yet more stories of school trips gone awry. And Pete's Dad fans can rest easy, as we get a mini-update from that area also. Review us, rate us, tell us what you think on iTunes or wherever you get your pods, and keep us in material: Love ya!x Further Reading: The best Northampton-related song you're likely to hear: The Greenland Shark:  See for privacy and opt-out information.

 Episode 38: Part vampire, part maths teacher | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:27:04

Happy Thursday! We're delighted to be in your ears towards the end of the week for the first time. It feels great.  This time around: Japanese trains and the perverts within them, Pete still has a hard time coming to terms with the age of some animals which manifests itself in the form of a truly horrific anecdote about tortoises, and some of your lovely emails of course. Thinking about it, have we ever made an episode that *doesn't* feature a truly horrific anecdote from Pete? Probably not. Get your thoughts to us as soon as humanly possible: Your reviews are important, so please leave us one on iTunes or your podcast provider of choice.

  Episode 37: A brave new world | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:26:47

The first of a new-look, twice a week Luke and Pete Show muscles into territory as diverse as efficient hydration (Luke), too-tight trousers (Pete, obviously), hemp trousers (Pete again, obviously) and the world's oldest animals. A note of caution, the world's oldest animals section blows Pete's mind to bits and it may well do the same to you. Consider that a warning. There's also more than enough time to hear from a listener who got himself into a spot of bother in a hotel in Krakow with hilarious consequences, so don't miss that.  Tell us about your hotel or old animal-related problems and issues here: Leave us a review on iTunes or wherever you get your pods and be in with a chance to become our favourite ever listener!

 Episode 36: You are now entering Dildo, Newfoundland | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:41:55

Your two eponymous antiheroes are back for another episode of LAPS as all the kids are now calling it (pronounced 'LAPS'), and first stop is Pete trying to convince his Dad Stewart to go on holiday with him. After that, they hop across the Atlantic to visit some of the most questionable place names in the US and Canada after the reveal of King of Prussia last week. There's also enough space in the studio to squeeze in an interesting Mencarta. A Mencarta involving hats, dockers and a WHOLE LOAD OF FIGHTING. What more do you want? Your boys are always keen to hear more of your chat, it's our lifeblood. So don't be shy:  See for privacy and opt-out information.

 The Windsor Knot | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:00:30

Hello you! Pete and Luke here. We've been working on a new show, and we'd love for you to have a listen. It's called The Windsor Knot, and it's a royal wedding podcast. A royal wedding podcast, made by and made for people who wouldn't exactly call themselves royalists. It's hosted by two incredibly talented men, Daniel Krupa and Joe Skrebels, and honestly - it's as funny as all hell. Do have a listen, won't you?

 Episode 35: The Words Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:40:01

Another week and another themed episode from the chaps, as this time around they get stuck into wordy matters, including yet more children with inadvisable names. We find time for more Steve McQueen and Paul Newman chat too, as well as a decent treatise on Pete's specialist subject - getting drunk at home in your underwear. There's also good news for the statue enthusiasts among you, so stay tuned for Mencarta.

 Episode 34: The Body Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:38:43

It's The Body Show! Luke and Pete received an inordinate amount of emails about the human body this week and so decided to group them together into one handy to listen to episode. But before they get into the nuts and bolts of that, there's the small matter of Japanese films Pete's been watching and Luke's new kitchen. More oddly-shaped chests are explored as well as the acupuncturing of a dog, but, and here's a warning, this episode also contains a pretty horrific email about the compromising of a man's scrotum. A scrotal episode if you will. Further reading: Pectus Excavatum: King of Prussia, Pennsylvania: Domesday Reloaded: Leave us a review, and a rating on iTunes and don't forget to subscribe!

 Episode 33: Too much seasoning | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:46:50

We start episode 33 with an insight into Pete 'Donny/PD' Donaldson's utterly confusing approach to timekeeping before running through his recent trip to Krakow in Poland, a city in which he managed to offend a local tour guide with his behaviour in a famous salt mine. And yes, you did read that sentence correctly. Also in this episode we hear from a listener who has been through a chest procedure that baffles the mind and soul and another friend of the show who has executed possibly the most mind-numbing job imaginable. And make sure you stick around to the very end because we head into Mencarta this week with an entry from the purest and deepest depths of hell.

 Episode 32: Where I walk is Rome | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:42:32

Pete starts episode 32 with a tremendously entertaining actor-based error and after that there's plenty more robot and AI chat following last week's discussion that kicked off 2018. We also take some time to read out your suggested riddle solutions, there are some more great non-translatable foreign words and someone almost kills a Shih Tzu with kindness.

 Episode 31: This is your future, so tether your payload | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:53:05

Holy Macaroni! We're in the future! It's 2018 and, as you can probably imagine, this fact dominates proceedings in episode 31. We discuss futuristic things that may or may not happen, Pete interprets his own dreams in quite a simple (and predictable) way, there's a heartfelt tribute to one of the world's great metallic birds and we touch on Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. Before we chip off for another week there's also a truly astonishing Mencarta, so make sure you stick around for that, too. Start 2018 off right and leave us a nice review on the Podcasts app or wherever you get your pods, and send us futuristic ideas here:  See for privacy and opt-out information.

 Episode 30: One Elephant Outstanding | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:40:48

 Episode 29: Tokyo Binge | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:40:32

Pete is back from his charity trip to Kenya, we hear from more listeners who have 'ruined Christmas', a man who struggled to make jokes while learning English, and an unfortunate soul who self-medicates with onions and insists that it works better than any more traditional remedy. There's also time for some more Booze Britain chat from a man very close to the franchise and a blast from the past in the shape of turn-of-the-century gross out series Jackass.

 Episode 28: Light, Ephemeral, Almost Fruity | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:51:39

On this week's offering to appease the podcast gods, our eponymous ne'er do wells take in such disparate subjects as flat earth rocketmen, wombats and groundhogs, the insect sting pain scale and yet more post office employee tales to savour. Elsewhere Pete continues to bang the 'speciality video' drum and there is an emailer willing to indulge him, we hear a story about someone who actually won a car in an airport raffle and spend a good amount of time talking about Pete's upcoming trip to Kenya to do some charity work that he doesn't like to talk about.

 Episode 27: Special Delivery | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:48:59

This week in your ever so slightly late and ever so slightly postal themed Luke and Pete Show, the boys discuss a truly ridiculous situation in the Post Office, a man whose eyes are frankly high maintenance, a postman in a spot of bother and much more. We also induct a new Mencartee, and find time to talk about our favourite alcohol-themed reality shows. Boozy. Toast us:  See for privacy and opt-out information.
