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.
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.

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.
Luke's been to Cornwall and discovered a giant goat (with a huge penis) in an exceptionally well laid out museum, and Pete brings two vocal record-breakers to the table, with differing results. There's also time to hear about a truly horrific mental disorder courtesy of one of our listeners, and we round off the show by heading to sea for the newest Mencarta induction. We love hearing from you, so say hello here: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Pete's been blowing up 'a surprisingly small amount of Hartlepool' with a make-believe nuclear bomb, Luke's talking about riding bikes in the 1980s a la Stranger Things, and the boys ruminate on etiquette when riding in the back of a taxi. Meanwhile they discover a real-life Tyrion Lannister, hear about a man who cleans his petrol station forecourt with a popular soft drink, and find out why lions are confused by chairs. Holler at your boys: email@example.com We. Love. You. Mother. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
A man who only eats roadkill dominates proceedings this week, as Pete spends a large part of the show complaining about his neck. It's starting to become a problem part of his body and he's also worried about curvature of the spine. Osteopaths, get in touch! Meanwhile, someone has discovered a creepy radio station that only broadcasts callsigns interspersed with a woman screaming, someone wants advice about higher education from a man who spent his university years playing bad computer games and listening to Macy Gray (Pete) and a man who is starting to not bother to dress himself properly (Luke). Also, John Titor, Dunkirk, a man getting drunk on a plane (again) and a load of other old rubbish. Deal with it. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
After the chaos of the email special, our two pals head back to more familiar territory and discuss recent visits to the good ol' United States of America and the Western Isles of Scotland, including the truly fascinating tale of St Kilda. There's also time to talk about the link between small people and anger issues, an impromptu Duncan Bannatyne set piece, and yet another truly bizarre YouTube channel courtesy of Mr Pete Donaldson. You, yes you, can contribute to this by getting in touch here: firstname.lastname@example.org. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
After being bombarded with an extraordinary amount of correspondence, Luke and Pete decide to take you all on and get through as many as they can in one episode. So, expect chat about accidentally hitting animals in the car, motion sickness, virtual reality, animals in the army, living in the Vietnamese jungle for over 40 years and, among other things, the time Pete's Dad put a snooker table in the family's front room.
