This week on Rum Doings, episode 43, we don't discuss whether it's time to abolish the metric system. Instead we discuss John's adventures in France, and Nick's adventures in complaining about John.

We talk about angry listeners, read French labels, and driving 1 litre cars with cup holders. And John makes a bold declaration: no more anecdotes. In an attempt to stop repeating anecdotes.

Our French theme continues with recalling French lessons at school, then bad teachers, big vases, and exponentially expanding biscuits.

There's an attempt to identify what fills Victoria Wood's bilious bag, confederate flags on British cars, and Nick teaches us Chinese. Then we handle the tragic death of Jimmy Heselden with extreme sensitivity. This takes us onto discussing those who were killed by inventions they were closely associated to. Then, as you'd expect, an exploration of the Chinese Five Pains Method.
