New Chart Cymru
Orignally recorded in 2013 and mildly reworked in 2019, Ben Baker and Phil Catterall investigate several Wales-themed charts and lists in an attempt to learn more about our fellow nation's culture. SPOILERS: they fail. Plus: the sexiest Welsh people, egg soup, a lot of Super Furry Animals songs and a concerning lack of Max Boyce.

The Ben Baker Quiz Explosion 2 - Alt Quizney
Hey kids! It's time for the second all new Ben Baker Quiz Explosion and this time I'm looking at the life, work and trousers of Walt Disney who was born on today in 1901 (or just after Emmerdale starts.) Don’t worry though if you’re not one of those people who falls asleep on their Oliver and Company bedsheets clutching their novelization of The Black Hole and screaming the lyrics to “Let It Go” as part of their ritual night terrors as there’s something for everybody in this show including: - Stupid Movie Rumours! - VHS memories and identifying the film company idents of old and new! - Walter Matthau presents "Walt Disney or Walter White?" - Eighties popstar Morrissey turns up to do a few of his favourite hits from the House of Mouse! - Garreth Hirons attempts to top the leaderboard in an animation-themed round of "Ludicrously Niche Mastermind"! And some actual questions about Disney stuff. But not many. Plus sketches, archive clips, stupid jokes, music and much more - all crammed into thirty minutes of awkwardly ill-defined podcast excellence.

The Ben Baker Quiz Explosion - Space Pilot 2018
To celebrate fifty five years of Doctor Who being on the telly, Ben Baker was tasked with creating a simple pub quiz to be recorded in podcast form. He failed. So instead here's thirty minutes of trivia questions, sketches, pisspoor Yoda impressions, archive clips, Phil Catterall becoming the very first contestant on Ludicrously Niche Mastermind and very stupid jokes about going to the toilet in space. So grab your sonic screwdriver and order a pan-galactic gargle blaster cos where we're going we dont need roads. Because its a podcast. Obvs.
