Conversation Street Episode 331

13Oct

On our latest podcast, we chat about the big week of Corrie episodes broadcast in the UK between the 8th and the 12th October. There were high expectations for this set of episodes, what with a couple of weddings, big secrets revealed and a deadly car crash all teased, but did it live up to the hype? On the whole, we'd say a resounding yes! Sure, Daniel and Sinead's 'not really a real wedding' ceremony could have been better, but we loved the action at Steve and Tracy's nuptials, the drama of Liz discovering the truth about Jim and Hannah and surprise twists of who got hurt - and how! - after the car chase. (Sure, Michelle lived to nag another day, but you can't have everything, right?) All that, plus another superb performance from Sally Ann Matthews as the reality of Johnny's infidelity began to dawn on Jenny, all made for a pretty great week! After Street Talk, we've got a classic character profile on Daryll Morton following actor Jonny Dixon's appearance on Doctor Who last week. To be honest, there's not much to say about Daryll, but it did give us a chance to try and figure out where it all went wrong with the Morton family, and wonder if there really is some kind of curse on anyone who moves into number 6.. There are a couple of small news bites to cover in the Kabin next, then we finish the episode off with a bit of a bumper feedback section.

Conversation Street Episode 330

6Oct

On our latest episode of the podcast, we take a look at the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 1st and the 5th October. It was all secrets and lies this week on Corrie - as Ryan tries to persuade Sophie to cover for him following the death of Cormac, Jim and Hannah's scam comes close to fruition. Meanwhile, Sinead hides the truth about the cause of her bleeding from Daniel and Beth whilst Jude, the biggest fibber of them all, manages to con an extra couple of grand out of Roy. After Street Talk, we're excited to be joined by Victoria Ekanoye, who speaks about her first year on the cobbles playing Angie Appleton. Who was she most excited to work with on Corrie? Could there be a future for her and Jude - or maybe Adam? How was the role of Angie originally someone quite different? Tune in and find out! Next up, in the Kabin, we take a look at some choice quotes from new producer Iain McLeod about his plans for the future of Corrie, then we finish off the show with some listener feedback, including an email in praise of Ryan Connor.

Conversation Street Episode 329

29Sep

Our latest podcast covers the episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 24th and the 28th September. This week, Steve gets caught in a compromising situation with local good-time girl Leanne, following a misunderstanding with Tracy. He's not the only McDonald up to his neck in lies either, as Jim certainly seems to be having a few doubts about scamming Liz out of £10k. Fortunately, though, another source of income comes up just at the right moment.. Meanwhile, evil Josh has got Billy in his sights (and it's not even insensitive to say that anymore since he's apparently getting his vision back now), and as the Connors get themselves involved in a dangerous coverup, another deception gets exposed as Hope and Ruby discover the truth about Santa. After Street Talk, we have a character profile on one of our personal favourite characters of the moment, Billy Mayhew, taking a look back at his ups and downs over the past four years on the show. For the second week in a row, it's been a quiet news week, so we skip The Kabin again and go straight into the feedback section, where we hear about some listeners' opinions on recent stories.

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.
