Liz Dawn's House Party

A podcast with more confidence in sporting metaphors might use some reference to 'extra time' while talking about their bonus episode, so naturally The Peggy Mount Calamity Hour sees this series-extender as more of an improvised, last minute lock-in. Because there's nothing like having a great night, drinks flowing behind closed doors, after dark and in raucous company with plenty of laughter.

And speaking of nothing like a great night, our heroic triumvirate have drawn the curtains and uncorked the port to gatecrash Liz Dawn's House Party, the 1996 straight-to-VHS version of The Stanford Prison Experiment where you can play along at home if you enjoy feeling trapped, belittled and punished.

For maximum effect, is it best to insert a laugh-track to complement jokes or as a substitute for them? For a great duet, should you really book two club singers with the same range? For the love of god, when does it end?

We found out, and now so can you...
