Lost Property Office 3: Karen Dixon 3-Day Eventer

Lost Property Podcast4 comments • 683 views

Week three of the new FreakyTrigger podcast (in association with SOAS Radio), the Lost Property Office. This week my guest is Pamela Hutchinson of Silent London London’s premiere Silent Film website. Pam dived into the pile of lost property and dragged up an object, a book and a CD which whose scrawled cover lied to us significantly. In this weeks show we consider the plot to Home Alone 3: Lost In Birkenhead, Stuart Murdoch: International Jewel Thief, Maureen Lipman’s Travel Tips and are surprised by just how easy Gaelic is as a language. We unsurprisingly talk a little on silent film, and I fear I may accidentally insult Pam’s husband and mother. But not her second cousin, who we all agree is rather cool (as are her husband and mother) Ahem!

This weeks right-wing namecheck is a shout-out to SOAS Alumni Enoch Powell, who loved to holiday in France whilst penning inflammatory speeches no doubt.

As ever if you recognise any of the music, or own any of the items in this weeks Lost Property office and want to be reunited, feel free to drop us a line in the comments (click more for the comments). And general comments are always welcome, if you have lost anything let us know!

    Singular of alumni is alumnus, like Mr Tumnus

    (Obviously you getting this wrong deliberately, to annoy tinpot classical scholar E.Powell, and quite right too.)

    Enoch Powell is not singular because

    a) he did two separate courses here
    b) he is legion

    Also note, fans of Karen Dixon, UK 3 Day Eventer, Ms Dixon does not appear on this podcast, but she is referred to as a famous person at one point.

    Oh dear, now I have the image of E Powell crossed with Mr Tumnus in my mind and I can never forget it!

    Can’t pretend I recognised the music, but this seems to be the CD in question:

    If only you’d plumped for track 14…
