Chats (for you) – Episode 49, Josie Long 2: Josie Long-er

Josie & James after yet another nice successful chat

In this 49th episode of Chats (for you) with James Walker, goddamn excellent comedian human Josie Long returns to the podcast!

The Big J.L. is back! It’s a silly fun chat time.

Also, to show how well we now know each other now, Josie guesses my birthday correct first time! Woah! (make sure you edit out all previous incorrect attempts before posting the episode, big guy – otherwise you will look QUITE THE FOOL)

Finally, I try – yet again – to get some of The Avengers on the podcast.

We talk about several different things, but mainly – bread. A lot about bread.

This chat was recorded in September 2016.

Vegan champs Carl and James post convo

In this 47th episode of Chats (for you) with James Walker, Carl Donnelly is the guest. We talk about a wide variety of things, from Wikipedia lies to our veganism (oh yes please get in my ears). I also completely blank two times – Carl was a complete gent and didn’t storm out immediately when this happened (he even covered for me by listing his favourite vegetables, what a guy)

There is also the debut exclusive of his (acceptable) Gordon Ramsay impression.

Listen below. Please share around if you enjoy!

Carl is touring his show Bad Man Tings across the UK, hitting up the excellent Stand venues on his way around. Details here.

Chats (for you) – Episode 46, Ed Gamble


Two lovely boys

In this 46th episode of Chats (for you) with James Walker, James speaks to comedian, Ed Gamble. Topics covered include his appearance on CONAN, making Almost Royal, and I can’t quite believe this happened, but.. I got an Ed Gamble EXCLUSIVE – You would not believe the SCOOP I got on this guy. Oh, and shitting. We talk quite a bit about shitting – but to be fair to me (and guys, I like to be), he totally starts it.

Listen below. Please share around if you enjoy!
