Limited Appeal is a self-explanatory podcast, really. On a weeklish basis, three old university friends now scattered across the world meet for a Skypechat that is recorded for your detr. . . , er, benefit. Surprisingly, we actually edit out the more boring parts of the conversation, and try to leave you with a few pearls of wisdom that are gleaned from consistently ridiculous points of view on discussion topics ranging from the mundane to the absurd. If you occasionally enjoy some of our conversations, we are pleased. But be warned: our motto is, "In case you were expecting something, this is what you get."
Warren challenges team LA to answer this unresolved question: when does a scarf become a blanket? Does it have anything to do with wheels or posture? You'll have to listen to John stutter through a painful (although amusing) summary of the issues, but this precis quickly becomes inadequate, as we discover the nuances of this superficially simple, but actually intricate problem. In fact, although we do suggest some of the philosophical complexities, we may need your help to achieve a satisfying solution. Email us ([email protected]) with your suggestions!

Good morning! You too, Mr Deluise! Join us on a nature walk, when Warren asks why humans are the only animals that wipe their asses after pooping. First we deal with all of the obvious semantic issues (we know you've already made a list of these), before getting to some important instructions for several aspects of toilet performance. You might think you're already an expert, but allow us to enlighten you: there are volumes of stuff you don't already know about proper pooping, and the internet is here to help, with images! Once you've recovered from the Google brain scars send us email ([email protected]) and describe the most offensive photo you saw that has not been emotionally repressed.

It's the first episode of season 8! It's great!! The start of this season is motivated by drunkards outside of Luc's house, who may have been singing the bagpipe song. Or maybe Amazing Grace. Anyway, on the topic of Scottish problems, Warren asks us to solve the problem of Scottish independence. We get a bit sidetracked by thinking about the nature of the question for the upcoming referendum, so we don't have any brilliant solution for Scotland, but maybe that's for the best. If you want to use the name "Drunken Lotharios" for your band, go ahead! But let us know by email so we can give you instructions for how to send us royalties ([email protected]).

Luc makes a return visit to the Safari Park where he previously met a chimp with serious rectal problems (see Episode "The Assey Wonders of Wunderbar"). Understandably, this leads to speculation on the nature of the afterlife. What if you don't like sand? Or boobs? Or sandy boobs? Then what, huh? Also, we get repunched in the mail sack by Zeth, who generously responds to our rather ungenerous response to his earlier email. I gotta hand it to the guy – he's extremely dedicated. Maybe excessively dedicated. That kind of dedication is crying out for a safe word – if you want to suggest one, email us ([email protected]).

Get ready for yet another special (and extra long) holiday episode of Limited Appeal. This time, Warren has a new series of bird recordings for us to describe (just like previous episodes of Who's That Bird), but the extra twist is that each bird has some kind of Christmas significance, and Warren is awarding extra points if we can figure out how. Extra points = extra drama (or possibly just extra bullshit). Three whole rounds of bird guessing! But they are extra weird sounds, so it's totally worth it. We hope you have an extra-ordinary holiday, and look forward to hearing about your Adventures in/at/over/around Tedmas via email ([email protected]). Ho! Ho! Ho!, and for good measure, Ho!
