Ground Level Podcast

(A discussion show for the rest of us...)

 

Life. Despite what we'd like to believe, it's hardly ever the way it is in the movies. For better or worse, everyday life for most people is a lot more... real.

How many times a day do you roll your eyes, sigh a deep sigh or just grimace in utter disbelief at the behaviour of the people around you? Or, against all odds, you manage to walk away from an otherwise awful day because someone or something managed to make you smile?

And what about your loved ones, friends & work colleagues? They are cool most of the time. Yeah, Most of the time...

No, it's not all bad. Every now and then there's a little diamond in the rough. A nugget of beauty that shines bright enough to lift your spirits.

This podcast is a discussion show about those things and more. The everyday things that we encounter that we love and hate. Those moments that make us think that the world is crazy... and every now and then that life is beautiful.

Each week we'll be talking about a number of diverse topics that affect us all, answering questions, imparting wisdom and shining a light on the things that make life a daily grind.

Ground Level ep003 - Where ever you go... there you are!

Home is where the heart is. Or is it? Do people tend to return to the comfort of where they grew up? Once a city kid, always a city kid? In this episode the boys think about their roots and where they prefer living! Of course, living is easier once you've found somewhere decent. But how many of us consider life outside the city? And what sort of hoops are we made to jump through just to rent a home these days?

Why are some people always late? Is there a way to escape from your friends at the pub? Is it ok to keep things from your partner? If so, what? Why do people say things like 'it is what it is? or 'It was meant to be?

With the help of some very strong beer and the looming shadow of an unnamed appointment later in the day, Denis-Jose, Dan & Lofty make another attempt to shed light on the mundane and bring sense to the non-sensical... all on this month's Ground Level Pod!

Ground Level ep001 - A bowl full of Facebook

In this episode, we take a shrewd look at some of the things that cause a love hate relationship with the biggest social vehicle of the current time: Facebook! Why do people post annoying status updates? And pictures of your babies? And of their Babies? And what happens when you cut it out of your life entirely?

We also have a chin wag about Celebrity Animals, Chuggers - Charity Muggers, Panic Buying and ask the most important question of all... why would you buy a bowl of aubergines?

Join Dan Collacott, Lofty, Browny, & Denis-Jose Francois for all this and more!

Ground Level ep000 - Olympic Issues

In this preview of Ground Level, we take a look at the upcoming Olympic Games from the perspective of those who live in London. What will it really mean to us, will we get to enjoy it live and do we even care if we don't?

We also have a natter about the Big Easter Egg Hunt, stolen bronze statues, insurance policies that make you feel like scum and people who don't know how to use a ticket barrier or a flight of stairs.

Join Denis-Jose Francois, Dan Collacott & Lofty for their thoughts on all these things and more!
