    Retro AMT292

    With Helen indisposed, Olly introduces a classic episode from the AMT archives: EPISODE 292. In which we discuss: Alexander Armstrong, McDonald’s weddings, Pop Tarts, Christmas booze, graphic design vs alternative medicine, tiny toaster troubles, Greyhound Buses and raccoons. And in which we don't discuss: the World Cup. Despite the fact it was on at the time, in June 2014.  You can find the most recent episodes of Answer Me This! at http://answermethispodcast.com and buy the first 200 episodes at http://answermethisstore.com, where our special albums are also available.  All being well, we hope to have a fresh new episode of Answer Me This! for you by the end of the month, when Helen has recovered from her hospital treatment. If not - we'll see you in August.
