This week‚Äôs podcast gets off to a somewhat odd start with a bunch of strange people talking about keeping small pink calves in dustbins. Then we have a bit of feedback from listener and former city slicker Louise on her transformation into country girl. Sartorially elegant Farmer Phil raves about his great day out at Monmouth Girls‚Äô School explaining the ins and outs of producing food followed by a bit of ribbing from Richard. The main feature this week is Richard and his antics in West Wales creating a water garden for freelance translator Rachel. It sounds like it must have been a bit of a tight squeeze to get any digging in between cups of tea Rich!
‚ÄúRant of the week‚Äù is from our very own Ricardo on just how irritating Bill Oddie (or Bloddie to his friends) is and how much further is this bloke going to drag the professional Kate Humble down? I think he‚Äôs really just jealous of Bloddie‚Äôs superior dress sense and proximity to the lovely Kate. What do you reckon?

Just time for a last minute plug for the Billy Bank. If you would like to contribute to Billy‚Äôs fund raising efforts for transplant charities you can either buy Ecover refills or the Billy Calendar. How about making the calendar a present for Gramps or Uncle Bill? Alternatively, buy one for yourself and get to look at four of the Wiggly team in the buff ‚Äì all done in the best possible taste you understand. To order go click here.
