The Tom & Jo Show is back with a brand new episode! It’s been a while – nearly four months, in fact – but here we are to reveal what you, the listeners, voted into Room 101, the fictional, Orwellian room where you can banish things that you dislike forever.

Listeners contribute things such as: religion, Campanology, Homeopathy, the M26, long false nails, loud chewing, golf, crystal healing, dreadlocks, Astrology, Bob Geldof, eating contests, ‘fun size’ things, mimes, paying to go to the toilet, rubbish and penguins. Some of which we agree with, some we don’t.

Jo decides to banish ageing and Tom gets on his soapbox and verges on inciting genocide on The Great Unwashed – the chav… or the stupid.

Also, the caption challenge from November is revealed: What’s in the Queen’s handbag?!

If you agree or disagree with any of the comments on this show, we’d love to hear from you. Find us on Twitter and Facebook. Thank you to all those who have waited a stupid amount of time for this episode to come out and hello to any new listeners. We’re gonna try to get more regular again in future… no promises though!

We’re back! In complete contrast to what our listeners want, we decided to go almost 2 months without an episode… we’re hoping that it’s just increased the demand for us!

This time Tom & Jo talk about neighbours, not the Australian soap opera, but the next door variety. They discuss good and bad people to live next to, including their current neighbours – one who might be a ghost and the family next door with the nasty phlegm problems. There are also suspected gangsters, raucous parties and people having too may cars.

Some of you listeners have offered stories of their own of both good neighbours and neighbours from hell!

Feel free to extend the debate with us on our Facebook Page or on Twitter @TheTomAndJoShow. Thank you very much to all who have contributed and interacted so far. Please, keep it up!

This episode of The Tom & Jo Show, our hosts debate another music based question: If God was a rock star, who would he be; Dave Grohl or Josh Homme?

Tom & Jo put the two rock musicians and frontmen through their paces and discuss their musical prowess, their looks and their way of dealing with trouble-makers at their shows, among other things and the usual listener shout-outs.

The subject Tom has picked for Episode 4 of The Tom & Jo Show podcast is: which decade would you have most wanted to grow up in?

This is a bit of a vague question, so many topics are touched on including fashion, the political climate, film and, of course, music. Our hosts do agree upon an answer eventually and it may come as a surprise to you – it certainly did to Tom, who had a very clear idea before talking about it out loud. Perhaps the phrasing of the question (his own question!) caught him out?

Feel free to extend the debate with us on our Facebook Page or on Twitter @TheTomAndJoShow, or even personally @heyitsmetom & @JoGirlyjo. Thanks you very much to all who have contributed and interacted so far; please keep it up!

The Tom & Jo Show – Episode 3

This time, on The Tom & Jo show, our hosts debate the demise of the chart and its impact on young people.

Tom & Jo reminisce about a time when you would wait all week to see if your favourite band or artist had managed to claim the coveted Number One spot from whichever act you thought didn’t deserve it last week. In a world before downloads and torrent sites made the Top 40 and Top of the Pops obsolete this was the talk of the playground and though it brought families together, it also highlighted the divide between your parent’s musical taste and yours.

Feel free to extend the debate with us on our Facebook Page or on Twitter @TheTomAndJoShow (even though we didn’t have the pages set up when this episode was recorded, we do now!), or even personally @heyitsmetom & @JoGirlyjo. Thanks to all those pop-pickers that have commented already.

This time on The Tom & Jo Show, it’s the ultimate battle of the big-screen titans! Our hosts discuss who is better; Sylvester Stallone or Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Tom & Jo go to great depths analysing the careers of these legendary actors both on and off-screen to come up with the most comprehensive argument you’ll ever have heard on the subject.

They also do impressions, some good… some very bad!

(The editing of this podcast took a bloody age thanks to the software occasionally skipping, I’ve done my best to iron out the kinks, but some of the drops happened during key bits of dialogue. Give one of us a shout on Twitter at @heyitsmetom or @jogirlyjo if you think you’ve missed anything important. – Tom)

The Tom & Jo Show is a podcast based on the conversations of a real life couple, Tom & Jo. Sometimes they have a few alcoholic beverages and spout wisdom so profound it needs to be shared with the world!

Disclaimer: Jo doesn’t believe the Internet to be a tool for looking up facts during the show, and alcohol is occasionally consumed before & during recording, so anything that isn’t accurate at the time of recording can’t be held against us.

This time, Jo asks the question: “What would you rather be: a pirate or a cowboy?” Sit back and listen to them give the pros and cons of living the life of both occupations. Do you agree? Give us your feedback on Facebook (if you can find us) or Twitter at @jogirlyjo or @heyitsmetom.
