About this Episode

Mark Steadman, Jon Hickman and Danny Smith continue their mission to discuss everything in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy canon , in alphabetical order.

Warning: This episode contains lots of swearing and sex talk.


Arthur makes a passing reference to having a dog in the second radio episode, and the first book. So the panel asks “where’s Arthur’s dog?”


Dolphins are the second most intelligent species on earth, but did you know just how kinky they are? Danny reveals all.

Domain of the King

Is Elvis really dead, and are we forgetting him? The panel discusses Elvis in recent pop culture, and ask an academic question about the slipping of the King out of our cultural memories.

Douglas Adams

The panel embarks on some general appreciation of Adams’ work inside and outside of the Hitchhiker’s Guide , involving his Apple fandom and his friendship with Richard Dawkins.
