Hoge ‘n’ Smith 65: The Return of Smith

September 4, 2016


The ‘Smith’ in Hoge ‘n’ Smith returns (although technically speaking he is ‘Smyth’ and if you really want to be accurate, he’s actually ‘Collins’). The trio discuss Cla’s third attempt at stand-up, Maghnus’s swim around Ireland, great album openers, bathroom misadventures and question the wisdom of clustering together L, G, B, T and Q.

Opening song this week is ‘Lose Control’ by Ash. Emails to hogensmith@gmail.com. If you’d like to support Maghnus’s  nominated charities, head over to http://www.sand2snowadventures.com.
