Ask The Nincompoops

by Great Big Owl

For the first time in human history, the tremendously clever grown-ups Andy Stanton (a bearded man behind the beloved Mr Gum books) and Carrie Quinlan (an unbearded woman who comes out of your radio) will be sharing the vast knowledge they've gained during their lifetimes with some children who, frankly, know nothing.


Honestly, joking apart, these kids are almost shamefully ignorant about stuff and things and the like. I blame the parents.


Armed with five questions, every episode sees two children being informed and educated by Carrie (a clever grown-up) and Andy (who is also a clever grown-up.)


So if you want to know who invented cheese, why the grass is green, and whether this is the best podcast you'll ever hear (the answer to the last one is 'yes', you can have that for free), then it's time for you to....Ask The Nincompoops!


This podcast is suitable for all the family! With the exception of Grandad, who will probably find it too "new-fangled" because it's a podcast. Oh I know you've tried to explain to him that it's just "radio on-demand", but even that seems to go over his head. He just shrugs and wanders off to the shed. Look, cut your losses and just set him up with a sherry and leave him alone. It's easier for everyone in the long run.
