Conversation Street Episode 328

22Sep

Our latest podcast covers the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK betweeen the 17th and the 21st September. There's double trouble for Imran this week after Toyah and Leanne discover they've both been getting into the brief's briefs. Meanwhile, Evelyn causes trouble at the Rovers quiz, Sal gets put in a cell and a suspicious Trace is on Hannah's case. After Street Talk, we've got part two of our look back on Kate Oates' time at the top on Corrie, where we take a change of pace from all of last week's positivity and have a good old moan about some of the less successful elements brought in by the departing producer. With it being a bit of a slow news week, we give the usual Kabin section a miss, and finish things off with some listener feedback, included a a first-time voice message from a long-time, like-minded listener.

Conversation Street Episode 327

15Sep

On our latest podcast, we discuss the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 10th and the 14th September. Ever since the rumours of Jim returning to the show with a grown-up dead baby Katie in tow first hit the Internet, many Corrie fans have been insensed about the prospect of such a grubby rewriting of one of the McDonalds' finest early moments. This week, we finally got to see it begin to play out on screen, and despite it turning out to be more of a con than a retcon, it seems that for many viewers, the story's still not exactly going down well. This episode, we weigh in with our thoughts on this, as well as our impressions of Evelyn Plummer, the Battersbeeb love triangle, Ryan and Ali's jolly caperings, and the downright bizarre football app story. After Street Talk, we have the first part of our Kate Oates retrospective, where we focus on what we see as the positive aspects of her tenure as producer. From our favourite characters and storylines to her hallmarks such as keeping certain big twists hidden before broadcast, we reminise about everything great about Kate. In The Kabin, we celebrate Ryan Thomas winning Celebrity Big Brother and Corrie's victory at the TV Choice Awards, then we round off the show with some feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 326

8Sep

On our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 3rd and the 7th September. Now, we don't know whether it was our reaction to the shocking revelation about Tyrone's parentage, our debate about whether Josh should be redeemed, or just Gemma's alcohol-fuelled ramblings after downing a drink for every ticked off square on our Jim McDonald bingo card, but it turned into a bit of a bumper length Street Talk section this week, meaning our planned Kate Oates retrospective has had to be pushed back to a later date - but it's definitely coming soon! In The Kabin, we share our reactions to the Corrie DNA Secrets show from Wednesday night, then following Sophie's latest love interest, tackle the question of age gaps between partners in the listener feedback section.

Conversation Street Episode 325

1Sep

On our latest podcast, we check out the episodes of Corrie broadcast in the UK between the 29th and the 31st August. This week, Angie's had enough of Jude's apology bolognaises and tells him it's over.. and with a surprise vow renewal ceremony just around the corner, what could possibly go wrong? Meanwhile, Kate's gutted to hear Rana could be leaving her for a six-week cruise, and there's gun horror for Peter outside the factory...which turns out to be nowhere near as dramatic as it sounds. Yeah... not the best set of episodes this week, really! Never mind, though because after Street Talk, we've got an interview with one of our favourite recent additions to the Corrie cast - George Banks! Could Henry and Gemma have worked as a couple? Which other Corrie character did George once audition for? Is he really as posh as Henry in real life? All shall be revealed! That's followed by our weekly news section, where we take a look at the awesome Corrie costumes at the Manchester Pride as well as weighing in on the controversy surrounding Ryan Thomas in the Big Brother house this week, then we finish off with a bit of listener feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 324

28Aug

The first of this week's podcasts covers the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 22nd and the 27th August. This week, Audrey hides out with Lewis whilst pretending to be on a cruise with Abba - what will be her response when he asks her to Take A Chance On Me? Meanwhile, Henry's having Money, Money, Money problems, Sean finally sends out an SOS to Billy, Dev and Gina face their Waterloo, and whilst Rana swears she still wants to be with Kate the big question is: Does Your Mother Know? After Street Talk, Michael talks about his trip to Manchester last week to take part in the Coronation Street quiz at Crazy Pedros, where he was very lucky to be invited onto a team with some of the Corrie cast! Deciding to hold the news segment off until next episode, we round off the podcast with a short feedback section, where we hear from someone asking us to look at things from Kate's perspective - and we defend our anti-Kate stance!

Conversation Street Episode 323

21Aug

We're back again, very early for this podcast as this is literally the only time we had available to record something for the next week! Street Talk covers the episodes of Corrie broadcast in the UK on the 17th and the 20th August. There's tragedy for the Habeebs this week, but can Rana forgive herself for lying to her dad as he shuffles off this mortal coil? She's not the only one bending the truth either, as Ducan's lies continue to cause trouble for Sally, especially when her supposed burner phone is discovered, and Lewis Archer is back on the scene - but can Audrey believe him when he says he's turned over a new leaf? After Street Talk, we're joined for a chat by Charlie de Melo! What's it like being the new guy on set? Could there be a future for Imran and Leanne? Most importantly, why has Imran turned into a massive git this past week? These questions and more our answered in our 40 minute interview! There are a couple of small news stories to cover in The Kabin, including Shelley King's recent appointment as a Hope Foundation UK abassador, then we round off the podcast with a bit of feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 322

17Aug

On our latest podcast, we discuss the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 10th and the 15th August. Yep, that's a Friday to Wednesday week, and for various reasons our recording schedule is going to continue to be all over the place this month, so keep an eye out for a very early show next week! In Street Talk this episode, we chat about Sally's wrongful arrest, pondering the validity of the police evidence against her and discussing whether Imran was right to represent the dastardly Duncan. We also give our reaction to Carla's reacquisition of the factory, see what's been ticked off the old 'issues storyline' checklist thanks to Sean this week, and ponder whether the sheer banality of the Jude and Angie storyline is actually starting to make it interesting viewing! In The Kabin, we discuss the news that, after all these years, it turns out that Corrie does indeed have a missing episode in the archives, then finish off the show with a bit of listener feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 321

9Aug

We've got another early podcast for you this week, covering the four episodes between the 6th and the 8th August. What great episodes they were, though! If you've listened to the podcast for any length of time, you'll know what big fans of Jenny Connor we are, so to have her and Johnny become owners of the Rovers Return this week was pretty much a dream come true for us. Not only that, but we've also been very much enjoying Abi recently, so it was great to see her get more time in the spotlight this week, as well as other favourites like Gemma, Henry and Imran - top stuff! After Street Talk, we're excited to be joined once again by the newly crowned Queen of the Rovers, Sally Ann Matthews, who chats to us about how she feels taking on such an iconic role, as well as sharing her thoughts on Johnny's recent behaviour and old vs. new Corrie. That's followed by The Kabin, where we tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming cast vs fans quiz in Manchester later this month, and we finish off the podcast with various listeners' thoughts on the Craig/Bethany/Kayla storyline in the feedback section.

Conversation Street Episode 320

4Aug

On our latest podcast, we discuss the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 30th July and the 3rd August. It's the week of the inquest into Aidan's death, and while Carla's still concerned about getting the factory, Johnny's main priority is honouring Aidan's memory - whilst Toyah and Leanne are just hoping Eva will be back in time to testify. Also this week, both Josh and Sean end up in hospital following violent confrontations, and the the factory is invaded by pests - with pervy Mr Hanlon the worst of the lot! It's been three years since we last profiled Eva Price on the podcast, so we thought we'd take a look at what she's been up to since then in the character profile section, where we also weigh up her status as a Corrie icon. Speaking of icons, that's one of the topics of discussion in the news section thanks to a recent poll by SCS. After a bit of listener feedback, we round off the show with a Kabin Extra segment to discuss an exciting bit of casting news that's recently been revealed.

Conversation Street Episode 319

28Jul

Thanks to last week's early podcast, we've got a tonne of things to cover this week, as we discuss the episodes of Corrie broadcast in the UK between the 20th and the 27th July. This week saw the climax of the Kayla story, and the big reveal of her secret identity. What could be next for her character, though, and is redemption really possible? Also this week, a fair bit of comings and goings - Eva and Adam head off for a new life in France, and Tyrone receives the sad news that his mum has died. On the plus side, though, we do get the return of the fabulous Claudia Colby! After Street Talk, we do a quick character profile on the late Jackie Dobbs, who, despite only being in the show for a handful of episodes, certainly made a big impression (and speaking of impressions, Michael of course takes plenty of opportunities to crack out his best Scouse accent throughout this section!) It's soap awards season again, and in The Kabin, we take a look at who's been nominated in the Inside Soap Awards this year, then we round off the podcast with more of your listener feedback.
