E37 Space-age Soviet SPECIAL from Uzbekistan
Location: Tashkent, UzbekistanGuests: Nicola Chilton, Maik Novotny and many moreIt's time for another new episode of Park DateOk I thought I'd try something different and record some on the hoof meanderings while I criss-crossed the Uzbek capital of Tashkent with some fellow fans of Soviet modern architecture and design. Then we head out of town to see the weirdest thing I've possibly ever seen - a USSR science project helmed by a 20 storey high sunscope on a mountainside in the desert. A bit fell off and nearly killed me. What a trip.As always GRAZIE to Lucia Scazzocchio, Luke Jones (do listen to his brilliant podcast https://southgirlproductionmusic.com/category/podcast-production/), Rosie Wilby (https://www.instagram.com/breakupmonologues/?hl=en) and Mae-Li Evans for encouragement, production support and advice. There would be no podcast without these people. THANKS GUYS. Park Date is about mixing the silly with the serious so do listen out for the original comedy we're slotting in between and after the interviews (which are hopefully pretty funny themselves). Do review, subscribe and like. Namecheck as many trees as possible in your reviews and make them as surreal as possible - I have a very nice prize to give out to the writer of the funniest review.Please follow us on socialsInstagram @parkdatepodcastTwitter @parkdatepodcastMore about Christopher Instagram @christopherbeanlandTwitter @chrisbeanlandchristopherbeanland.com Hello you!
