A sad John Prescott. A naughty Oscar Pistorious. A smug Ian Duncan Smith and a Chocolaty Anthea Turner. Episode 55 is scandalous in more ways than one, and you get to find out a bit about the gang's pre-teen romances. Everything your heart desires. So long as you're willing to pay for it.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Comedians and cowboys are the order of the day as we use our special dialling wand to press the random article button on Wikipedia and talk about the nonsense that comes up. We also chat Rustlers burgers. So y'know.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
A bite-sized Wikishuffle for you this week, INCLUDING: Selena Gomez! Bieber! One Direction! All of the top hit-parade acts of this decade. PLUS! South African politics! Don't let anyone tell you that we're focused.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
BALLS. BURRITOS. BOMBS. That's what you've got to look forward to on this week's ramble through the weird world of Wikipedia. Plus: Chris being angry, mansplaining and McNuggets. Poink!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
In this unfocused episode we talk Twinkys, Poole, seasides and nostrils. Plus, Jack pronounces 'syringes' in a very strange way, Chris reveals that he believes in magic and Phil gives us the lowdown on our award winning weekend.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Singing trios and terrorism are the order of the day in this, the 18th episode of fabulous podcast Wikishuffle. We hope you enjoy, and I'd like to say that Wikishuffle, Jack Stewart and Chris Wallace do not represent the views and opinions of Phil Sharman, and especially his joke at the end of this week's episode. Shame on you, Phil.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Guten Tag! Wie geht's? Sind Sie verheiratet? It's time to go to GERMANY, to discuss the country's two most appalling exports - Nazis and German pop music. As ever if you'd like to help us knock that bastard Marc Maron off his perch, leave us a review on iTunes, we'll be very grateful. Einen schönen Tag noch  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
The first of our April special guest episodes, and joining us at Wikishuffle HQ is Scroobius Pip super-fan, cross stitcher extraordinaire, canaleer and all-round good egg Keith Clark. It takes us a while to get onto any actual Wikipedia articles because Keith is too busy embarrassing Jack and showering Chris with gifts. But we've got a real humdinger for you. Eventually. (Phil has a cold, so apologies for the Lemsip smell and tissues everywhere).  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Here's our second bonus episode of the month, with Owen Hughes from failedcritics.com returning for some more Wikipedia-based fun. There's a young Jack Nicholson, an old Boris Karloff, some troublesome Georgians and an over-zealous marketing campaign.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Time for the second half of this month's guest episodes, and we're swingin' on the flippity flop with Keith Clark once again. It's quite clear to everyone who his favourite member of the Wikishuffle team is. Chris is lavished with gifts, and his opinions on animals with jobs are given altogether too much of a platform. Clever animals to one side, 90's America provides the inspiration for the other articles Keith has selected. Don't be a lamestain - get yourself bound and hagged ready for this week's bonus Wikishuffle.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Another bonus episode lovingly created thanks to listener suggestions. We pick just one cracker to talk about here, as we touch down on several Wikishuffle favourite topics- geography, war and testicles.

No Jack this week, but don't let that worry you (I know, you weren't), as we've got Ruth Bradley instead. Having Ruth visit at Wikishuffle HQ certainly hasn't made us raise the tone any. In fact, it's just a matter of time before the conversation inevitably descends to looking up pictures of poop on the internet. And our first article is surprisingly handy for helping you survive the neofascist landscape of post-brexit Britain (sorry, European listeners - we still love you, even if our countrymen can't be trusted to act in their continent's best interest).  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
We're not bitter. Honest, we're not. The Guardian explicitly told us they were going to feature Wikishuffle in their podcast feature and they didn't. That's fine. We understand. And we definitely didn't take it personally. In other news, please acknowledge us where the Guardian so ardently refused by voting for Wikishuffle in the New Media Europe podcast awards: https://www.facebook.com/events/438299223042307/permalink/474661112739451/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Other potential titles for this episode included, but were not limited to: - The Emotionless Tattoo - Swiping Right on a Klansman - LARPing in a Pret - Marvin Lee Aday Keeps the Doctor Away That last one was obviously the best, but it was too long to fit in the show graphic. Them's the breaks. It's another emergency episode this week, but fear not, none of us are dead or trapped in a sink hole, we've just been too busy attending podcast awards and watching the football to record this week. Normal service will resume in seven days.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Friend of the show Owen Hughes from failedcritics.com has brought along some articles for us to take a look at. We perve over Superman actor Christopher Reeves, get sidetracked by crisps, bang on about the Oxford comma "like a bunch of nerds", get a bit Fritzelly and have Chris explain his plans for fattening up Girls Aloud. A day late because of technical issues; there'll be another part to this bonus out next Friday.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
It's bonus episode time, and it's Phil's turn to choose an article for us to discuss. And boy, has he picked a humdinger. Get ready for a whirlwind tour through the history of Vatican City. No, it's better than it sounds.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
What an episode we have for you. Four (FORE!) shuffles in one episode. FOUR! Join us as we talk smoking, lynching, racism, pop music, golf, and vaginas. Oh.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that we're a bit bum-obsessed at Wikishuffle HQ, but that simply isn't true. We just go wherever the random article button takes us. And it just so happens to pique our interest whenever anything derriere-ery comes our way. Or maybe it's just fate. Apparently fate also really likes having us talk about large scale disasters and the consequential loss of life - as is befitting for a comedy podcast.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Most podcasts don't transition from whimsy to cheese to chess to frank discussions about mental health. But then Wikishuffle isn't most podcasts. In fact, statistics will tell you that Wikishuffle is actually less than 10% of podcasts. Look it up if you don't believe me. And, what's more, you can hear the story of how Chris got his legs waxed (he claims for charity, but I suspect a fair amount of sexual gratification amongst his motives).  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Wasn't it lovely of the Queen to send us a telegram for our 100th episode, which is definitely something that happened and we certainly didn't just doctor an old lady's 100th birthday telegram, because that would probably be treason. And this bumper 100th episode special has been a long time in the making. Not just in the fact that we had to release a prior 99 podcasts to make this happen, but because this episode has - for indeterminate reasons - taken us well over two months to edit and release. Was it worth the wait? Well we'll let you be the judge of that, but you do get a whole six Wikipedia articles for your money, covering the entire gamut of Wikishuffle nonsense. There's some tragedy, some wrestling, some classic pop big hitters and a modicum of BDSM to keep you interested. We even went to the trouble of hiring a local brass band to play us out. Here's to the next 100 episodes. Sincerest thanks if you've joined us on the journey so far.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
It's an episode where we read out lists of what things are called in different countries. That sounds like fun, right? Specifically, a beloved character and a niche sport. Want to know what beloved character and which niche sport? Well then you'll have to listen. Or look at the show notes at wikishuffle.co.uk if the suspense is too much for you. We're also plugging our new spin-off podcast Goodnight Sweetcast, that you should definitely listen to, irrespective of your interest in 1990's time-travel-and-bigamy sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart. On top of that, we make another appeal for you to send us a postcard from your shitty town: Wikishuffle HQ, 1B Headlands, Kettering NN15 7ER.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
"It's a hypothetical situation about spider being on your penis. Just go with it." Can you believe we've made it all the way to episode 92 before bringing up the hypothetical situation about a spider being on your penis and just going with it? Me neither. In the intro to this week's episode we out another British celebrity for being a creepy old sex pest man, and in the outro - despite our intervention two weeks ago - Jack is back to doing a load of gross foot stuff.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Stacey from her eponymous pop culture parlour podcast is back for our second special guest episode for May. We've dialled down the smut this time around, and we're talking things nautical and anime. Don't forget that Stacey will be holding her 24-hour podcast marathon later in the summer and you can pledge your support at justgiving.com/spcplive2 in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Have you ever posed yourself the question "I wonder what fictitious couple Jack would choose for a hypothetical threesome"? Well, ponder no more. Plus, have a listen to our hot take on the backlash for the new Ghostbusters film (spoiler - all men are terrible). As we press the random article button on Wikipedia and do some chat on whatsoever there so ensues. Thanks to everyone who voted for us in the 2016 UK Podcasters awards - we're very pleased to announce that we've made the shortlist for Best UK Podcast. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for us.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
In her sixth and final outing on Wikishuffle (for now, at least), Ruth Bradley spends most of the episode making crude hand signals, willfully unaware of the limitations of audio podcasting. Phil regails us with some actual first hand (and not very flattering) experience of our first random article subject, before we all set about hitting you with our laser beams, much to the chagrin of 80's BBC Radio One presenter Mike Read. Jack will return next week. Do try and contain your excitement.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
