Bi-weekly minefield, frozen locks, demolition and which way is the Earth's core spinning today?

Lippy & Grumpy do podcasting

Plus numbering chaos, the over and out list, is Hustle a business programme, Dr Zamboni, amateur astronomers, guest presenter, turntable rebuild, candle over-purchase and a crashed bicycle.

We've found another ambiguous term, bi-weekly, no wonder we are confused.

Grumpy has further information on the Juliane Koepcke story from last week and good news about Popmaster.

We spent a day successfully demolishing Lippy bathroom, with Duckboy crossing the line into DIY fandom.

Grumpy owns up to episode numbering chaos, although he suspects it's Lippy's fault.

The recent cold snap caused car locks and doors to ice up, in one case trapping someone in their car.

One of Grumpy's bugbears is the use of "over and out" in films and tv series. Sadly Sheldon Cooper has joined James Bond on the list of offenders.

Having watched one episode of The Apprentice, Grumpy thinks and Lippy agrees that the tv series Hustle is a better business programme.

Dr Zamboni is alive and well!

Lippy read a story about the Earth's core spinning in the opposite direction to the Earth's surface. Scientists disagree with one another and our minds have been blown. Lippy owns up that she's been spreading untruths about the amount of caffeine in tea.

Is astronomy the only science that has so much amateur input? Lippy speaks total nonsense about NASA and the oceans.

We're lining up The Screaming Tomato to fill in for Lippy when she is away on her honeymoon. Goodness only knows what will happen.

Grumpy has managed to rebuild his 30-year-old turntable and is now hunting down vinyl in charity shops. Amazingly Grumpy found a mobile phone app that measures the speed of a turntable.

Lippy has an over-purchasing incident with candles for the tables on her wedding day, resulting in a return trip to Ikea. Is it possible to return items and not buy anything more?

Wife of Grumpy has had a pothole-induced bicycle accident, resulting in a face plant in mud and a broken fork.

Lippy has a bride-based top tip and Grumpy has another aviation-based fun fact.
