    So ready for this.

    I've been listening to random episodes from the previous series' and I don't think the speed fucking in the library (whilst the clothes are being sent to a charity shop) will ever not make me CRY WITH LAUGHTER.

    I may relisten to book four in preparation.

    Fingers crossed for Toffee Apple Chew, obvs

    I was going to start thinking of some EXPENDABLE characters - but quite frankly there's no point in trying to make a rational prediction.

    That was SUCH a good one. Classic.

    Did anyone listen to the first episode of series 5 this week?

    The first 20 minutes or so was reliably brilliant. Then towards the end of the episode, I did wonder whether it's starting to get a bit TOO stupid for its own good.

    All the same, a life with this podcast in is much richer than one without.

    It has gotten a little self aware and bat shit crazy, although a this point I’m strangely invested in this world so not too bothered. I was genuinely agog at Bellas potential death.

    It's incredibly obvious at this point that they're writing it themselves, but the image of The Duchess casually riding Toffee Apple Chew(!) around a pile of charred corpses had me howling.

    I'm not entirely sure they write it completely, but at the very least clearly they are script editing. To be honest I really don't care, though. It still has me howling at least a couple of times each episode.

    There's no way Bella IS dead though, is there? I don't think I could bear not hearing that voice again :(

    The chances are minimal, I should think.

    This one was (apparently) written during the first series of the podcast, and Bella hadn't quite become established in her unique way at that point. But I think even if she HAD been killed off, it would surely have been re-written.

    I don’t think they’re writing or editing. More likely is that they’re making so much money they’ve established a kind of Misery situation, where Rocky is chained up in his shed with broken ankles being forced to churn out content.

    I personally was never convinced that his dad ever wrote anything. Plus, how hard would it be to track that dad down and go and interview him at the end of the day?
    But, as other people have mentioned already, when they make me laugh so hard and the podcast is SO entertaining, who cares really?
