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.
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: email@example.com 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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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: email@example.com 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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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: email@example.com. 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.

This time around the boys rake over the old 'barrel roll in a plane' conundrum again, because some conversations just will not die. They also find time to contemplate disappearing into the woods for 27 years, and a listener gets in touch claiming to have once superglued his own mouth shut. Again, something for everyone there. And if you can't find anything to like in that lot then stick around because there's also talk about the horrific public execution of an elephant.

In the fifth instalment of Luke and Pete's Summer, the Little and Large of the podcasting world discuss museum exhibitions, knuckle dusters and setting fire to a million quid. They also find time - with the help of a listener - to rationally explain the existence of ghosts. So listen and never be frightened again. Of ghosts. I mean, there are other things to be scared of, of course. Like Pete. Say hello: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Why are a group of local men trying to find millions of missing rubles in a disused rocket mine in Russia? Why are loads of sheep knocking about an island off of the coast of Scotland with cardboard wings on their back? And how would Pete and his annoying older brother Luke survive if the world ended, and what skills would they need? PS We also talk about nut allergies and getting hit by lightning, so there's that. Thinking about it, we packed a lot into this one. Say hello: email@example.com And how are we still hearing about animals being used in war? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
What the hell is a long egg? Are there secret items available for purchase at the world's best fast food restaurants? And why was Pete being fed like a bird by a man in a KFC? It's an impromptu food special, everyone! But don't worry, there's still time to read some more of your emails and talk at length about the great Buzz Aldrin. You'd honestly be quite careless to miss it! Download, subscribe, listen, enjoy! And say hello: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
What happens when a bird flies into your house? Why is a man on the internet filming himself eating the oldest things he can find? What do you do when you use your step-dad's computer and discover something unspeakable? And how long can a chicken live without a head? Just four of the questions Luke and Pete attempt to answer in their own inimitable style for the sophomore episode of Luke and Pete's Summer. Strap yourselves in. Say hello! email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
In the very first episode of Luke and Pete's Summer, our two eponymous heroes take a rip-roaring tour around Pete's favourite Japanese ghosts (including one that performs a horrendous act upon its victims), suggest the type of correspondence they want from you, the listener, and bring their ideas to the table for an all-new encyclopedia CD-Rom, including a frankly ridiculous incident that befell the poor people of Boston in the early 20th century.
