Episode 86

Chapter 86. You can almost spot the join.

Tuesday 7th December, Chez Hogarth (cont'd).

Half way through recording what would eventually become Chapter 85, Ant had the idea that we should keep riffing on the subject of .Com and see if it would offer enough 'gold' to stretch over two episodes.

So we did.

And at the end of the session we felt confident that we had easily achieved that in terms of quantity, working on the assumption that the ship has already sailed with regard to quality.

Of course once we began to piece it together, and remove the various interruptions, sustained bouts of laughter and extended moose cameos we realised it might have to be a bit of a cut'n'paste job.

The question is, how many of the joins can you spot? Answers on a postcard, the winner gets a yo-yo, a satsuma and two walnuts in crocheted cardigans...

Next week.... CHRISTMAS BOLLOCKS with Chris Neil!

Love'n'last-minute rehearsing. Maybe we'll see you in church...

About the Podcast

The Corona Diaries
Steve Hogarth
Lead singer of Marillion, father, hippy, punk, soul singer, progressive rockstar (wtf!), defender of the faith, voice of reason in a world gone crazy...

...and now podcaster.

Join me as I talk about my life and what is rambling around in my head.

Along the way I will focus on some of the stories that have shaped my career and my life, as well as reading from my diaries and offering my take on the wider world.

Stay safe,


P.S I began this journey just as CoVid-19 took hold and changed our lives, possibly forever, so it seems apt to reference that in the naming of the podcast.

I have been tinkering with audio since my mid-teens, recording songs & producing content for friends.

Post university I embraced the world of retail, firstly in supermarkets and later in & around the music instrument industry.

After 20 years or so, I took a sideways step into podcasting and began a venture called ashortstories, which helps in the development & production of podcasts for anyone that has a story to tell.
