This episode comes with a heebie-jeebies warning because this week, Gyles and Susie are investigating phobias. 

From the common claustrophobia to the less known gelophobia, this episode will explore what has been scaring us since the greeks.

It’s also quite the confessional for our hosts as they’ll reveal their shared aerophobia, Susie’s self created prunidigiaphobia and Gyles tries to persuade us that he has glossophobia (we didn’t believe him either).

However, one phobia we all know that for us Purple People isn’t a concern is porphyrophobia: a fear of Purple!

A Somethin’ Else production.

Don’t forget about our live show, coming to a computer near you on Thursday 25th March- grab tickets here!

Gyles and Susie want to hear about any phobias that the Purple People have or any fears that don’t have a name yet, email

Susie's Trio: 

Quonking - Unwelcome noise form the sideline 

Snoaching - To speak through the nose 

Nikhedonia - pleasure of anticipating victory
