A lot of things are covered in this week’s podcast. Ranging all the way from the new Batmobile design that Zack Snyder released this week, what you guys thought about it and why it NEEDS guns! Also discussed are Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where the producers are going with the second series, thanks to an article by @monstersyfyshow.

Ant talks about the new Doctor Who episodes and brings a story about a grave-digger who exhumed a corpse for its relatives to pose in a photo with! Tom tells the story about a homeless woman who claims to be pregnant with Prince Harry’s baby, the same week that the Kate and William have announced their own pregnancy.

The guys talk about the inexplicable success of Kanye West and Justin Beiber when they do awful things like stop their concerts until they know the guys not dancing are definitely disabled. Lumped into this is the success of Mrs Brown’s Boys, a shit sit-com about an Irish man dressed up as a woman swearing. It doesn’t hold up in the shadow of good comedy like The Fast Show, Spaced and Black Books, but somehow there’s an audience for it? Do you know anyone who watches it and is a fan? Add your views to this discussion on Twitter and Facebook.

Ant & Tom also put forward some new ideas for a segment about watching and reviewing films or TV shows on Netflix as well as some ideas for merchandise, let us know on Twitter, Facebook or e-mail if you have ideas for the segment or if you would like to have as a t-shirt, mug, etc.

Big love goes out to all our listeners this week, but especially Robbie Polanco, David Williams, Monster SciFi Show and Weekly Geek Speak (we hope Andrew didn’t get into trouble!).

In this week’s episode Ant and Tom are back for the first time in what is hoped to be a continual run of ‘live’ Sunday shows.

In the first half of the show the boys comment on the goings on with listener participation and whet they’ve been up to; Tom has been recording a new show, which will come out soon, and getting out of work to escort Jo to a dentist in London. Ant took his family to Legoland for Chloe’s birthday… as well as for Ant’s own personal gratification!

Lots of depressing news this week including the Oscar Pistorius trial the sinking of a ferry in the China Sea, the death of Peaches Geldof, an Iranian woman whose son was killed prevents the man who murdered him from being hanged. In other news, an Indian businessman had 12 bars of gold removed from his stomach after complaining of constipation. News from closer to home, Hertfordshire to be precise, where a runaway Rhea (a South American Emu-type bird) has been on the loose and could disembowel you if you tried to capture it… so don’t try!

As it’s Easter weekend, Tom decides to reveal why Good Friday is called that, thanks to a question by film director Jon Favreau and Ant talks about why Easter is celebrated at different times of the year and the etymology of the word Easter. Tom closes out on the review of a biblical epic; Darren Arononofsky’s ‘Noah’.

Here’s the video of the crucifixion re-enactment in the Philippines, if you can take it!
