Conversation Street Episode 231


Merry Christmas, everyone! Episode 231 is our last podcast before the big day, and covers Coronation Street between the 19th and the 21st December. Gemma is now in the know about Mary's secret son, and she attempts to harness the power of social media to find him. Her video isn't the only thing that gets around this week, though - Maria basically spends Monday and Wednesday's episodes fitting in as much nookie as she can before her court date, and nearly ends up getting herself gassed to death in the process. Meanwhile, Bethany's hoping for some bedroom action of her own as she tries to seduce Gary on a trip to Leeds. After Street Talk, we get all festive and count down our Top Ten Christmas Day moments on the Street, before sharing our thoughts on this week's Jean Alexander tribute show in The Kabin. We've got a Santa's sackload of festive feedback to get through towards the end of the podcast, and we round things off with a short discussion of some upcoming character departures in a Kabin Extra.


Conversation Street Episode 230


On our latest podcast, we talk about the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 12th and the 16th December in the UK. Roy and Cathy's countdown clock has reached zero and their wedding day has arrived, but will they actually make it down the aisle before Roy's true feelings are discovered by his bride-to-be? Meanwhile, Phelan winds up in hospital after Andy, in a rare show of doing something interesting, whacks him on the back of the head with a brick. We actually start to gather some compelling evidence that Phelan's some sort of cyborg when we get to discussing this part, so we hope you don't mind things getting a tad off topic! Also this week, Tim's lost Australia, Drunk Nick proves to be just as fun as Angry Nick, and Michelle actually has a scene that made us kind of like her a bit more! After Street Talk, we get all festive with a game of 20 Corrie Questions, find out CBC's Christmas schedules in The Kabin, and finish off with a bumper feedback section.

Conversation Street Episode 229


On this week's podcast, we chat about the episodes of Corrie broadcast in the UK between the 5th and the 9th December. If you thought Beth's bigamy and Sharif's 7-year affair were difficult to believe, there's another shock in store for you this week: Mary's had a secret, long-lost son all this time! Also keeping secrets this week is Peter, who's clearly got another woman on the side - not that that stops him flirting outrageously with Leanne all week, though! We just like how it winds Nick up... Meanwhile, Roy makes a rash decision about his future with Cathy, and Nessa's back and causing mischief already. Following Street Talk, we launch the Conversation Street Awards 2016, listing and discussing the nominees in each category. Make sure you get your vote in by the end of the year! Up next, we whizz through some news items in the Kabin, before rounding off the episode with some listener feedback.


Conversation Street Episode 228


Episode 228 of Conversation Street sees us discussing Corrie between the 28th November and the 2nd December in the UK. After last week's superb episodes, this week had a lot to live up to, and, in our opinion, it didn't quite manage it. Yes, we had the climax of Caz's 'murder' storyline, but there were a few too many lucky coincidences leading up to her arrest for our liking. We also had quite a bit of filler content this week too, with the twins' scratchcard shenanigans and Tim's allotment storyline being perfect examples. At least we got a nice wedding out of the week, though, and we're looking forward to the prospect of more drama to come for Rana and Zeedan. After Street Talk, it's time for a listener questions segment, where we discuss our favourite Corrie weddings and what the future may hold for David. Next up, we remember the late Andrew Sachs' role in Corrie in The Kabin, before hearing some of our listeners' opinions on Phelan in the feedback section.


Conversation Street Episode 227


It's been a week and a half since our last podcast, which means we have the eight episodes between the 18th and the 25th November to cover. What a fantastic eight episodes they were, though! Kicking off with Michael kicking the bucket and ending with Phelan weaseling his way back into Eileen's affections after being shafted by Vinny, the Pat's Flats storyline was a triumph this week. Not only that, but the decision to bring the Barlow boys back to the Street also proved to be a wise one, with Daniel's suspicious behaviour and subsequent revelation about his upbringing proving to be an interesting development. On top of that, we had some hilarious Gemma scenes, more of the wonderful Yasmeen, and the return of one of our favourite comedy characters of late: Brian Packham. We don't have a middle section this week (though we do end up somehow end up spending 25 minutes singing the praises of our character of the week - no surprises who it is..) but there's still a bit of news to discuss, including Les Dennis' first post-Corrie project. We finish things off with some more listener feedback.


Conversation Street Episode 226


It's time for another midweek podcast, this time focusing on the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 14th and the 17th November. This week, Michael finally thinks he's got the ammo he needs in his mission to take down Phelan; little does he know, however, that Pat's got a secret weapon of his own stashed in his rucksack. Meanwhile, the Barlow dynasty in Weatherfield is bostered by two when Adam and Daniel return to the Street - we got real vibes of Ken vs. Mike in these two, and we're looking forward to seeing what they'll add to the show. It's been a while since Adam last graced our screens, so we thought it would be useful to have a quick refresher on him in the character profile section. Next, we weigh up the reliability of last weekend's Eileen Derbyshire rumours and check out the red carpet fashion at the RTS North West Awards, before rounding off the show with a bumper feedback section.


Conversation Street Episode 225


On our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 4th and the 10th November. It was another strong week, in our opinion, with the big reveal of Sharif's affair - and his subsequent scarpering - being the highlight. Seemingly going against popular opinion online, we also loved all the Caz stuff, as admittedly unrealistic as it maybe was. The only real downside was Anna and Kevin's pointless and short-lived break up - Anna's had about as much screen time with her so-called boyfriend this year as she's had with Emily Bishop, so we did struggle to care when she dumped him! Next up, we take a look at Sharif's brief time on the Street with a character profile, and ponder what's next for the Nazirs. In The Kabin, we take a look at some interesting statistics from The Press Association, then we round off the show with some listener feedback.


Conversation Street Episode 224


We've got a busy Friday and Saturday ahead, so we're coming at you early this week, covering the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 31st October and the 2nd November. It's Halloween in Weatherfield, with Steve and Kirk competing to be the ultimate Uncle Fester, Mystic Mary telling fortunes in the Rovers, and Anna's legs doing their best Freddy Kreuger impression. Meanwhile, as Caz appears to be playing a nasty trick on Maria, Rana's treated to a fabulous diamond ring when she agrees to marry Zeedan. In the Kabin, we take a look at some of the Corrie cast's scarily good Halloween outfits, then we round off the podcast with some feedback from listeners old and new.


Conversation Street Episode 223


Our latest podcast focuses on the episodes of Corrie broadcast in the UK between the 24th and the 29th October in the UK. It's a classic aftermath week this week, with plenty of trips to and from Weatherfield General and a variety of dire prognoses. Meanwhile, back on the Street, Michelle and Steve eagerly await his genetic testing results, and Gary gives Sarah a thorough oral examination in the ginnel. After Street Talk we move onto this week's feature discussion, and a topic that isn't exactly our forte: the world of sport! We delve into the various stories over the years that have had a sporting theme, from inter-pub Olympics to ping-pong, and do some mini character profiles on some of Weatherfield County's top players. In the Kabin, we look over some behind the scenes info about last week's fiery stunt, then round things off, as always, with some feedback from our lovely listeners.
