Episode 74 : No Such Thing As A Fish & Halloween Music Facts!
This week's episode is brought to you by Stubhub.Lior Phillips is joined this week by two of the four hosts of the award-winning, hilarious, and altogether wonderful podcast No Such Thing As A Fish. In addition to hosting that brilliant show, Dan Schreiber and Anna Ptaszynski work as Elves (aka researchers) for British comedy panel show QI, a quiz show where funny and interesting responses are rewarded as well as right answers. Along with fellow Elves James Harkin and Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna and Dan wound up each week with so much eccentric trivia that they decided to host a sort of spinoff podcast. Each week, No Such Thing As A Fish features the four hosts' favorite facts of the week—some really off-the-wall stuff, equally jaw-droppingly fascinating and hilarious. On this week's chat, Dan and Anna call in to talk about their brand new book of facts, their upcoming US and UK tour dates, first gigs, working with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, and so much more. Plus, Anna and Dan share their favorite music facts from the year, as well as some spooky Halloween-ready facts about witches on hallucinogens. Head here for more info on No Such Thing As A Fish.For more from Lior Phillips and This Must Be the Gig, follow along on Instagram or Twitter, or like the show page on Facebook.Be sure to subscribe, rate, and review via Apple Podcast, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you find your podcasts.
