The Luke and Pete Show
Summary: Join Luke Moore and Pete Donaldson for an unplanned half hour every Monday and Thursday as they pull on the threads of the universe and revel in the discovery of where each one takes them. From ancient history and modern phenomena to the week's events and everything in between, The Luke and Pete Show is your chance to share in the fun of two men with time on their hands and a good idea of how to waste it.
In this week's fifty minutes of daftness, we learn of Luke Moore's love of herbivorous mammals, the life-size cabbage patch doll who lives in his house, and Pete learns of a frightful eyesore of a building in Lebanon. Get in touch via @lukeandpeteshow on twitter, and firstname.lastname@example.org for all your correspondence, which for obvious reasons we can't live without.

Pete has made a truly disturbing discovery about the very bones that hold literally all of our bodies together, there's some decent discussion about airports and the presence of strange car raffles within them, some more British awkwardness and lots more including more from our egg correspondent. It's getting to the point now where we don't need to tell you that we have a bit about off-brand batteries in there also, isn't it? Make of that what you will. Spark us off, be a part of it: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
First up, Luke has locked himself out of the house. After that all of you, literally all of you, are sleepwalkers or so it seems. As a result, we trawl through a load of your tales of the mischief you've all got up to while unconscious. There's also time to explore the legal precedent for committing horrific crimes while asleep and subsequently getting away with it. Basically it's a crime/sleepwalking special. Do us a favour and, if you like the show, make sure to hit 'subscribe' and leave us a review. Both Luke and Pete would really appreciate it! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Luke and Pete are joined by a special guest as writer and broadcaster Rick Edwards pops in to the studio to discuss his new book Science(ish) and whatever other nonsense us and you, the listener, can throw at him. Expect talk about British awkwardness, a fair bit about the science behind movies and why Rick is unlikely to ever become friends with celebrated director Christopher Nolan. Oh, there's also plenty of battery chat (obviously), the possibility that we're all living in a huge simulation, and a bit about why Rick has no sense of smell...

This week on the loosest show in town our eponymous heroes follow up on last week's battery chat with several of your example cells, and bloody enjoyable they are too. Elsewhere we chat Ridley Scott, provincial towns, sleepwalking with bizarre consequences and the natural coating one can find on an egg. Oh, and a Luke and Pete Show legend actually makes a contribution to It's Been as well and it's all very exciting... See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
The boys are in a brand new studio and have headaches due the tightness of their headphones. You'll be pleased to know though, dear listener, that they both press on regardless. A pair of true pros. On the agenda this week - CDT teachers with kit cars, sanding one's own hands by accident, a visit to Hamburg, odd brands of batteries and a truly horrific version of the It's Been theme sent in by a listener. Trust us, it really has to be heard to be believed. There's also loads more besides, including your emails about how weepy you all are. Bless your hearts. Make us cry: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Luke and Pete are back and Pete is dressed as Edward Scissorhands, an outfit that garnered him great feedback from none other than Tim Burton himself, Luke has been to the Crystal Maze and there's plenty of tim to get stuck into Richard Gere, obviously. If that's not enough to sink your teeth into, we have an email about a family Christmas dinner that will make you question the very concept of the nuclear family and Pete fills us in on Japanese mummies. To send us pictures of your own self-mummification, or anything else: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Pete's back! That should be all you need to know really, but in episode 19 you can also hear all about the following subjects: - Samurai swords - Dads - Calling up communal phones in rural Ireland - Encryption - Ann Summers - Traditional Japanese hotels If you can't find something in that lot to enjoy then there really is no hope for you, dear listener! Fill us in on what we're missing: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
A generation-defining episode, a coming-of-age if you will. We've hit 18! Lots to get excited about here including a very special guest familiar to those who attend the Luke and Pete parish regularly. But don't fear all the change, there's still plenty of old favourites to sink your teeth into - IT'S BEEN, crap jobs (including a monumental 'I quit' story), Mencarta and lots, lots more. Validate us, give us new ideas or generally moan about something here: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Pete announces to the world his catchphrase and then tells us all about the best dog ever (apart from possibly the one last week that was friends with a dolphin). The boys then take us all through a Bad Job/Good Job email special from listeners, including a truly horrific washing machine delivery, before telling some tall tales about terrible jobs of their own. To offer us a terrible job, email here: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
A dog has become friends with a dolphin in Ireland and it's a big hit with Pete. While all that's been going on, Luke's fitted a new car stereo (which is only marginally more interesting than it sounds) and there's more fierce debate about the calorie content of Guinness. And if all that wasn't enough, someone does something unspeakable with a big spoon and some chocolate pudding. And for once, it wasn't Pete. To send us chocolate pudding, or Guinness: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Luke's been to Atlanta checking out whale sharks, and while he was there Pete was back in the good ol' UK judging a dog competition with an 80s pop star despite never owning a dog in his entire life and not knowing any of the breeds. It's great work if you can get it. Meanwhile, the boys also talk about the origins of Lovehearts as well as everyone's favourite tongue-replacing parasite. And don't worry, these two things are unrelated. Bother us: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
What did you learn in home economics at school? What did you have from the vending machine after you went swimming? But you know what they say, nostalgia isn't what it used to be, so there's also enough space in the Luke and Pete audio bubble to chat about your most awkward family dinner incidents and a mysterious and unsolved death in Australia in the 1940s which Pete appears to be obsessed with. To solve the crime or just let us know regrettable things you've said at the dinner table hit us up: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Pete's done Luke a solid and prepared the show on his behalf, and if that doesn't worry you it really should. This time around the boys hang their chat on the loosest of themes but it means they take in such compelling subjects as marble racing, the geology of south London, shipwrecks (again), atomic bombs (yes really, yet again) and torture techniques. In retrospect, talking for ten minutes about torture isn't the most pleasant of listens but the world isn't all rainbows and unicorns buddy, so deal with it.

There's enough chat about chocolate bars to sink a battleship (hopefully without an unlucky Uruguayan onboard), Luke tells a frankly quite horrendous story about a fox - so consider that fair warning - and, sticking with the nature theme, there appear to be frogs and ants playing host to a range of parasites. There's also enough time for a couple of listeners to chime in about one of 1999's most controversial films and yet another email about you know what. Please stop sending them in. Email us about literally anything else here though: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
