To borrow from The Song Of The Summer 2017, let AMT353 in the walls of your labyrinth. IE your ears. What did you think we were talking about? A duck's complicated nether regions? All will become clearer (but not necessarily more savoury) at http://answermethispodcast.com/episode353.

Answer us this: how would you define 'Afternoon Delight'?

1. Settling down to watch Countdown with a nice cup of tea (not Lipton) and a nice biscuit (not one that gives you a 20-year-long health fear)?
2. Bit of post-lunch pre-dinner nookie?
3. Listening to AMT351, admittedly a delight at any hour of the day?

If you win a year's supply of Weetabix, how much Weetabix do you actually get? And where will you keep it? (And why would you want it?) We speculate in AMT349, as well as learning about cheddar, axolotl-maintenace, and deconstructed coffee.

Jelly in your pipes,
Jelly in your pipes,
Wibbly wobbly wibbly wobbly
Jelly in your pipes!

Seriously, people, don't pour jelly into your pipes. It will prove a trifle problematic.

Further valuable lessons in AMT348: what to do if you lose your passport at the airport; how to deal with your kangaroo-killing neighbour; why you shouldn't brush your teeth with barbecue charcoal.

After AMT347 we have more questions than when we started, eg:
Is Michael Parkinson really a giant?
Are chocolate fondant puddings actually sexy or is that Olly's desperation talking?
Is there anything funny about a dead dog?
