This week’s episode of The Adelaide Show, ‘Til death us do laugh, we’ll celebrate the fact that Steve and Nigel both turn a year older this week by reliving a classic interview on the topic of facing your own mortality. This interview with Andrew Reimer, Brett Williams, and Michael Shanahan, revolved around Steve asking his friends to all write and record their eulogies for him, which he did not hear until the episode was recorded.
The “laugh” part is based on that fact that Steve cheated death last Friday night and did his first stand up comedy gig. While there is a quality recording coming soon, we have a short snippet recorded by audience member, Lisa Kennewell, to give you a taste.
Because Steve and Nigel are both away this week, there are a few segments, only, including:
100 Weeks Ago, reliving the discussion about nuclear energy with Ben Heard.
And in the musical pilgrimage … we have a song from Joe Man Murphy.
