Jason Williamson (Part One)

It might come as a shock to many of you, but over the years The Moon Under Water has served as a place for some of the best musicians to share stories, hone their craft, and generally get creative. For example, did you know that Brian Wilson wrote "God Only Knows" whilst changing some barrels in the cellar? And Beyonce was inspired to write "Crazy In Love" after seeing Landlord Robbie staring at the pump clip of one of the guest ales?

David Jesudason (Part Two)

*This is part two of David Jesudason's episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part one first or things might be slightly confusing*Many believe that the UK is the ultimate pub destination due to the sheer variety of pubs that you can visit. Old pubs, flat-roofed pubs, pubs that date back centuries. However, the hidden gem of UK pubs is arguably the desi pub: a place that grew out of attempts to break the racist colour bar of the 1960s which often meant non-white customers were refused service. These pubs, predominantly ran by British-Indian landlords, may not be the most well known, but they are some of the best in the country. This week we're joined by an actual alehouse expert who has visited LOTS of desi pubs; it's author and journalist David Jesudason!What David doesn't know about pubs isn't worth knowing. He's also one of the go-to experts on desi pubs, having written his own book on the subject (which is available in all good book shops). But would his dream pub be based on desi pub, or would it go down a different route? Join us in the Correct Realm, as we're about to find out.Got something you want to send to the landlord?

The Pub Notice Board - 'Veggiewurst'

What do you want if you're about to go on holiday? That's right: recommendations for places that nobody can remember the name of, or restaurants that you can't eat at due to being a vegetarian. This week for our dedicated regular Dan he was on receiving end of one such recommendation ahead of his trip to Hamburg weekend, so you can be sure that he's going to find some absolute gems when out on the continent. Plus, we hear about Robbie's recent dining experience eating the UK's most expensive sandwich.Do you have something you want to share with the Landlord?

On the other hand, they can be an unwanted distraction; when instead of having a lovely group discussion, everyone ends up watching 'The Chase' on mute.

Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*Whenever a Realm Quake strikes at The Moon Under Water change often follows. After it was revealed that Landlord John and his most dedicated regular Robin Allender will be moving on from the Correct Realm, they decided it was only fitting that Robin was given the chance to create his very own 'Pub of the Mind'. So strap in, and join us as we head through the Mists to create a very special Moon Under Water for the most dedicated of regulars out there. To everyone who has accompanied John and Robin at The Moon Under Water, we thank you so much for listening. But fear not - very soon The Moon Under Water will be returning under the stewardship of a brand new landlord and regular, who've both received the Robins and Robin's seal of approval.

Al Murray - Operation Supercharge (Part 1)

We all had heroes growing up. As a child Robin Allender used to run around the house dressed as James Joyce, pretending to make his way around Dublin whilst putting on an Irish accent. "Another Guinness, good sir" he'd often be heard proclaiming to his family, who thankfully always refused his requests. Landlord John, on the other hand, admired landlords. He would wake up early every morning and clean all the glasses in the house, before "opening up" the front door at midday. And every night, young John would fall asleep underneath a poster of his favourite landlord of all... The Pub Landlord, Al Murray. They say that dreams don't come true, but we disagree; because that very same landlord has made his way into the Correct Realm to create his dream pub.Al is synonymous with pubs, and we can't even begin to imagine how many pubs he visited whilst creating his 'Pub Landlord' character. There's surely going to be plenty of ales flowing around in his dream pub, and it's about to take shape before your very eyes (ears). Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Adam Kay - Doctor's Orders (Part 1)

There's a famous joke that does the rounds at The Moon Under Water: "Doctor Doctor, I feel like a pint of ale"... "Well, get yourself down to The Moon Under Water then!" It's an absolute classic, and it goes down a storm every time it's told - and even though it's now been told over a million times in the Correct Realm, we're still going to try it on our next guest. It's writer, comedian, and former doctor Adam Kay.It's a known fact that if you're reading this then you own a copy of Adam's smash-hit book This Is Going To Hurt. Though he touches on pubs throughout the book, he doesn't really get "bogged down" in the reasons why he loves pubs... which is why we're so excited for him to join us at The Moon Under Water! His latest book Undoctored: The Story of a Medic Who Ran Out of Patients is available in paperback on 8th June. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Andrew Hunter Murray - Frome The Bell Tolls (Part 1)

Once a year in the Correct Realm we host the "Impossible Quiz", in which there are no correct answers to any of the questions. So far the highest score, zero, has been achieved by everyone who has ever taken part. And whilst many have entered undeterred at the idea of walking out without a single point, this week's guest might just be able to find a way of getting a few points on the board. It's comedian, podcaster, author and researcher on the smash TV show Qi... Andrew Hunter Murray! Andrew is a certified "Qi Elf", and is tasked with searching out the most incredbile facts, statistics and claims known in the Other Realm. He's also a celebrated author, whose book 'The Last Day' was met with rave reviews. He also has another on the way - 'The Sanctuary' - and we're sure it'll eventually find a place on a shelf in The Moon Under Water. However... the only answers we're interested in today are the ones about his dream pub, and we eagerly wait to hear what he is going to create. Hosted on Acast.

Helen Zaltzman - The Definite Article (Part 1)

"Podcast". Now that's a word we've never heard in the Correct Realm. We're told it's some sort of audible murmuration in which people are able to share their thoughts and feelings directly into your ears. It sounds mad, and to be honest it doesn’t sound true. However, we’re led to believe that this week’s guest is a pioneer in the world of podcasting, so we’ll suspend our belief as she walks through our doors. It’s broadcaster, writer and podcaster Helen Zaltzman.Helen was one of the very early adopters of podcasting, and will be looked back on as one of the key players in its infancy. She still podcasts, and her wonderful series ‘The Allusionist’ is well worth a listen if you’re a fan of all things language. You may also notice that she’s the second Zaltzman to enter The Moon Under Water, but we’re almost certain that Helen’s pub will be less bizarre than Andy’s.

Josh Pugh - HMS Prelude (Part 1)

We often talk about the great pub cities of the Other Realm, but equally as wonderful are the pub towns and villages out there... places that might not seem big enough to accommodate more than one or two drinking establishments, yet somehow manage to cram multiple pubs within seconds of each other. This week's guest is from Atherstone, a town that once claimed to have the most pubs on a single street in the UK. But that's not his biggest selling point; he's also a brilliant stand-up comedian. It's the incredible Josh Pugh!Josh is an award-winning comedian and social media smash, whose latest show Egg, Sausage, Josh Pugh, Chips and Beans was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award. As a native of a GPT (great pub town) we can only imagine that his dream pub will be reminiscent of those in Atherstone, and we cannot wait to hear what else will be flowing through its pumps.

But don't just expect him to lament about Swindon; we're sure he's going to tick-off plenty of Wiltshere's big hitters; such as Cricklade, Wilton and Amesbury. Rhys is currently on tour!

Max Rushden - Obedire Baggarts (Part 1)

If you're a football fan then you'll be familiar with the pre-match pint. It's a magical pint full of excitement, discussions of tactics and - quite often - chanting. The post-match pint, however, is a differenet story. Will it be a pint of joy, or a pint of sorrow? Either way, football and pinting compliment each other perfectly, and this week's guest knows this only too well. It's presenter and host of Guardian Football Weekly Max Rushden!Max grew up in Cambridge, and studied at Oxford; so he's well versed in the pubs of Oxford that played such an important role in the formative years of Landlord John and Robin. However, he's since decided to set up shop on the other side of the world... in Australia! Are we about to have our first ever Fosters-only pub?

Tony Livesey - The Royal Dyche II (Part 1)

There is a certain subset of people who have the unique ability to condense even the grandest of stories into a digestible three minute chunk. They don't deal with filler - they get to the point end on a laugh. We are, of course, talking about radio presenters. And because of their unique ability to capture the attention of almost anyone (depending on which station you listen to) they make brilliant pub guests. Joining us this week is one such presenter. Like Blackburn, Burden, Wallece, Hope and Adebayo before him we welcome another gold standard presenter: it's the inimitable Tony Livesey.Tony can currently be heard keeping the nation informed on 5 Live Drive alongside Clare McDonnell, but before he ventured into broadcasting he had a very different job: he was the editor-in-chief of the Daily Sport - the home of sensational headlines. We're sure Tony has plenty of juicy stories about the heady days of 90s journalism, but we're equally as excited to hear about his very own dream pub.

Jess Phillips - The Dog and Hand Grenade (Part 1)

How are big decisions made at The Moon Under Water? Well, firstly someone tables a motion: usually John, and usually something along the lines of "We need more pint glasses". Next the motion is debated, where you might hear Robin argue that "We have enough pint glasses here, what we really need is more beer mats!". This goes on for weeks, until eventually the motion is put to a vote (and because there's only two permenant residents at The Moon Under Water every single motion has ended in a tie).But how are big decisions made in the Other Realm? Well, this week's guest will be able to shine a light on that - it's politician Jess Phillips!Jess has been a Member of Parliament for Birmingham Yardley since 2015, and as a Birmingham native she's had plenty of experience with the pubs of our second city. But when it comes to her DREAM pubs, what does she look for? A nook? A log burning stove? A karaoke machine? Fear not - as she's about to enter the Correct Realm and bring her Pub Of The Mind to life.Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

This goes on for weeks, until eventually the motion is put to a vote (and because there's only two permenant residents at The Moon Under Water every single motion has ended in a tie). But how are big decisions made in the Other Realm? Well, this week's guest will be able to shine a light on that - it's politician Jess Phillips! Jess has been a Member of Parliament for Birmingham Yardley since 2015, and as a Birmingham native she's had plenty of experience with the pubs of our second city. But when it comes to her DREAM pubs, what does she look for? A nook? A log burning stove? A karaoke machine? Fear not - as she's about to enter the Correct Realm and bring her Pub Of The Mind to life.

Andy Zaltzman - The Lawnmower Of Unquenchable Truth (Part 1)

The Moon Under Water has hosted a fair few guests over the years, and as a result there has been a monumental amount of choices made. Draught, bottles, spirits, wildcards... all stretching back since time itself began. But suppose you wanted to take a deep dive into the numbers behind the Pub of the Mind: does such a person exist who could interpret the statistics and come back with fun, digestible stats that provide you with a unique insight into what's happened so far? That person certainly DOES exist, and his name is Andy Zaltzman!As well as being a comedian and author Andy is the resident statistician for Test Match Special. He's able to pull mind blowing stats out of thin air, and his knowledge of all things cricket is really something to behold. Though he doesn't have access to the numbers behind The Moon Under Water, if we were to create our own Wisden Beer Almanac he'd be the man we want to help. He's also a thoroughly lovely guy, and we can't wait for him to arrive.Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

Henry Jeffreys - The Black & White Striped Unicorn (Part 1)

Is there a better feeling than settling in at your favourite watering hole, drink in hand, and a good book to keep you company? Probably not, but one thing is for certain: if you were to be reading a copy of Empire of Booze by Henry Jeffreys you'd probably be sitting there until the book is finished (which probably means you'd finish a good few pints too). It's an absolute page-turner, and a book that anyone intrigued by the history and alcohol should have in their own personal library. Now if only we could talk to the author himself to pick his brain... Oh look! Can you believe it? Heading towards The Moon Under Water is the actual Henry Jeffreys!Henry is a drinks expert and author whose work has appeared in the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, BBC Good Food and Master of Malt amongst others. He started out writing a blog about alcohol before moving onto books and his works have been celebrated by people far and wide.

Maisie Adam - The Filth and Fury (Part 1)

Anyone from Yorkshire will know that from the day there are only ever two drinks on offer: tea and ale. Whichever you choose depends on both your age and the time of day, but it means that those who grew up in God's Own Country have pubs running through their veins (not literally). Our guest this week is one such Yorkie - it's Maisie Adam! You may know Maisie from her appearances on Live at The Apollo, A League of Their Own, Mock The Week, and The Last Leg. You may also have been lucky enough to see her performing stand-up live in the flesh (if you haven't, get yourself out to one of her shows!). She's also spent plenty of time frequenting the boozers of this fair isle... and something tells us she's going to create a pub near to the Landlord's own heart.

Thanyia Moore - Moore Drinks (Part 1)

Comedy lends itself to spending a lot of time in pubs. Whether it's on a wooden box in a back room, on a carpeted stage in the corner or simply leaning on a bar sharing an anecdote to a large group of people, you're never too far away from a laugh in a pub. As such, the relationship between comedians and pubs can often be a special one. This week's guest is one of the finest stand-up comedians in the UK, and has spent plenty of time plying her trade in pubs up and down the land: it's the wonderful Thanyia Moore! As well as appearing on the likes of Mock The Week, The Duchess and Pure Thanyia is one of the hottest prospects in stand-up. She performed her debut Edinburgh show last year and is currently in the middle of a MASSIVE UK tour, so no doubt she's been spending the odd evening sampling the best alehouses this country has to offer. But will they have any affect on her own dream pub?

Joe Wilkinson - The Sue Pollard (Part 1)

Many of you will know of Kent as "The Garden of England", but what many of you won't know is that many years ago Kent was known by a different nickname: "The Beer Garden of England". This was due to its unusually large number of public benches, upon which each year millions of ramblers would rest their weary legs and treat themselves to a bottle of lager (or a pint of bitter should the necessary facilities be available). Public benches have since been replaced by public houses, and this week's guest knows a thing or two about such south-easterly establishments; it's comedian and actor Joe Wilkinson! You'll know Joe from his appearances on Live At the Apollo, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, After Life, as well as when he competed on The Great British Bake Off. As an accomplished stand-up he's spent many an evening frequenting pubs up and down the country, and we can only imagine that'll play some part in shaping his very own 'Pub of the Mind'.Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

We can't quite believe he's finally here... it's the one and only Barry Glendenning!Barry may be one of the most beloved football journalists out there... he may also be one of the most beloved podcasters out there... but ultimately, he's known for being the perfect pub guest and a thoroughly lovely guy. He's sampled pints up and down the land, and can slot into any topic of discussion with ease; and we cannot wait to hear what his dream pub looks like.You can hear Barry on Guardian Football Weekly, and on talkSPORT every Sunday morning.

Pat Sharp - The Fun Free House (Part 1)

Pubs are fun aren't they? Whether it's a good old knees up, a debate about what the best can design of all time, or a challenge to see who can fit the most pork scratchings in their mouth there's always something going on that will provide sufficient entertainment for the evening. If you're looking for an alehouse that, above everything else, will be fun then you best follow this week's guest. It's the founder of the concept of fun - it's Pat Sharp!Pat is one of the UK's most beloved broadcasters, having appeared on our screens and in our ears since the early 80's; and above all he's known for being one of the nicest people around. Like Tony Blackburn before him, he has an uncanny ability to condense every story into a digestible 90 second snippet - and for that he's potentially the perfect pub guest.Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

The Moon Under Water Christmas Party (Part 1)

It's Christmas here in the Correct Realm, which means it's time for The Moon Under Water Christmas Party. Yes, Landlord John is ready to down his tools and invite his staff (himself) to their yearly celebration - and because Robin has been helping out a bit on the bar recently he's allowed to come too. As the old saying goes: "Two's company, three's a Christmas party within your mind", so we thought it only right to bring a very special guest along for the festivities. Let's just say she knows a thing or two about pints! As well as discussing the year gone by, the gang get their taste buds around some beers and non-alcoholic brews! If you want to drink along, the beers tasted are: Anspach & Hobday's Pfeffernüsse Stout, Cloudwater Brew Co. Super Happy Christmas Pale Ale, Big Drop Brewing Co. Galactic Milk Stout, Low Tide Beer Co. Our Future Is Golden, and Gunner. Merry Christmas one and all, and we'll see you in the New Year. Look after yourselves. Hosted on Acast.

Alexandra Haddow - The Snog Inn (Part 1)

For many of us the pub is a place where friendships are created and strengthened, with the humble pint serving as the perfect canvas for a conversation about all manner of topics. But what if those conversations lead to something a bit more, and a kiss ends up being on the cards? Well, in the past one thing might have led to another and you might end up with a snog... but when was the last time anyone snogged?! It's a travesty, and this week's guest on a campaign to 'Bring Back Snogging'. It's stand-up comedian and writer Alexandra Haddow!Alexandra (@alexandrahaddow) is one of the hottest prospects in UK comedy, has toured up and down the country, and hosts Dulwich Hamlet Comedy every month as well as Alex vs. Men at Vauxhall Comedy Club every Monday. She's also been running her own indie music night since 2008 (check out @indie.amnesty).

Deb Grant - The Cat and Minerals (Part 1)

Music plays an important role in pubs.

Making their way into The Moon Under Water is DJ and broadcaster Deb Grant!Deb regularly presents on Jazz FM and 6 Music, and can often be found DJing in some of London's coolest joints.

Joe Marler - The Seven Bells (Part 1)

Landlord John and Robin line up on the 22m line at The Moon Under Water. A voice cries "Crouch... bind... set... PINTS" before the two of them battle it out to gain control of the last pint of Guinness at The Moon Under Water. This isn't the usual way they decide who gets the final drink of the night; but it may come in very handy when this week's guest arrives. It's professional rugby union player and podcaster Joe Marler!Joe is one of the most talented rugby players of his generation, representing England, the British & Irish Lions, Harlequins and Harlequins for close to 15 years. However, if there's one thing to match his rugby skills it's his pinting skills, and he heads to The Moon Under Water as someone who has immersed himself in the sport with possibly the biggest drinking culture out there. Thankfully, he's not about initiations and dirty pints; he'd much rather settle down in a quiet corner and watch the night pass by... much to the delight of John and Robin.If you want to hear more from Joe then make sure to check out his own podcast 'The Joe Marler Show': https://podfollow.com/the-joe-marler-showWant to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

Landlord John has returned to an absolute crime scene: Robin is nowhere to be seen, all the pint glasses have been chipped, the beer mats have been thrown across the floor, and worst of all... every single packet of pickled onion crisps has been stolen!"Fear not listener, for that was all a piece of fiction; The Moon Under Water is totally fine. You're probably thinking "That's the worst piece of fiction I've ever read" and yes, you may be right. But thankfully someone is about to arrive in the Correct Realm who could teach us a thing or two about fiction. He's one of the most celebrated authors to ever grace these lands, and it's someone that we've wanted to visit The Moon Under Water for some time now. He's possibly the greatest Pubsman of all time, it's none other than Sir Ian Rankin! Ian is the man behind Detective Inspector Rebus, and his books have gone on to be worldwide bestsellers for the last 30 years. And one thing that any fan of Rebus will know is that he gets to visit some incredible pubs, with almost all of them being inspired by pubs that Ian has frequented himself. As a resident of Edinburgh Ian is surrounded by some of the greatest pubs on Earth, and like Landlord John and Robin he sees them as sacred places. We are so excited for him to join us, and we can't wait to hear what his dream pub will be like. Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

And one thing that any fan of Rebus will know is that he gets to visit some incredible pubs, with almost all of them being inspired by pubs that Ian has frequented himself. As a resident of Edinburgh Ian is surrounded by some of the greatest pubs on Earth, and like Landlord John and Robin he sees them as sacred places. We are so excited for him to join us, and we can't wait to hear what his dream pub will be like. Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

In this episode of The Week In Pubs discussion turns to Halloween costumes, drinking after some time off, and the ultimate pub crisp.Got any Mist Mail? Send it to john@moonunderpod.com.

Corey Taylor - A Bit Of Fun (Part 1)

It's a typical evening at The Moon Under Water; Landlord John is polishing the brasses with delight, Robin is sipping on a pint of Magic and the pictures on the walls are flickering between photographs of pubs and paintings of crisps. Things are nice and peaceful now, but there's a sense in the air that things are about to get loud. Yes, there seems to be someone approaching the doors of everyone's favourite Pub of the Mind... and with a thunderous scream the doors are thrown open, and in steps singer-songwriter and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor!Corey is a self-confessed Anglophile, and whilst he no longer partakes in drinking alcohol pubs still occupy a very special place in his heart. After all, isn't the most important part of an alehouse the company you keep within it? He's spent many a night in the pubs of Britain and beyond, making his journey into the Correct Realm that little bit more exciting. So, push your fingers into your ice, pour another drink and join us.Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

Mark Steel - This Pub's in Town (Part 2)

*This is part 2 of Mark Steel’s episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*As many of you may know The Moon Under Water takes its name from an essay written by George Orwell, in which he outlines his idea of the perfect pub; what it looks like, what it contains, what fixtures and fittings are present. Earlier this month Landlord John and Robin ventured into the Other Realm to record a special LIVE episode as part of the Orwell Festival. Live from The Marquis Cornwallis in Central London (just round the corner from a blue plaque celebrating Orwell) they were joined by a guest who not only loves pubs, he knows a fair bit about Orwell too. It’s comedian, author and broadcaster Mark Steel!Mark is one of the most beloved broadcasters in the UK. He regularly appears on radio and television, and his series Mark Steel’s In Town is famous for documenting towns around the UK that don’t often get much coverage (and his research often involves visiting pubs in said towns). We all know what happens when John, Robin and a guest are put into a REAL pub, so prepare to immerse yourself in The Moon Under Water once more.Want to hear an extended version of this episode (featuring a Patreon-only choice), gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

Zoe Lyons - The Boot (Part 2)

*This is part 2 of Zoe Lyons’s episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*So far many of our guests have one pub city that is close to their heart; the place where they cut their teeth in the world of pinting. But this week’s guest has had by far the most eclectic pub upbringing: it’s comedian and host of Lightning Zoe Lyons!Zoe is one of the UK’s most beloved comedians, and has appeared on the like of Mock The Week, Room 101 and QI. She’s also lived in pretty much every part of the United Kingdom, and as a result knows her way around the pubs of this fair land.

To make sure the Patrons' Poems get the recognition they deserve, from next week we'll be featuring them in the final episode of the main podcast each month. That way your name will be forever inscribed in verse for the whole world to hear.But if you've already been included in a Patrons' Poem then fear not!

It’s restaurateur Oliver Peyton!Oliver was a long-time judge on Great British Menu, a TV show that has made Landlord John weep openly on more than one occasion. But he’s not just an expert on food; he also knows a thing or two about alcohol, and you can be sure that his dream pub is going to be something very special.Want to hear an extended version of this episode, gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

Pete Brown - The Welcome Inn (Part 1)

So far the library has been stocked by over 40 books, each one detailing some aspect of the beauty of pubs (although to be fair some of those links have been quite tenuous). Our guest this week is someone whose writing sits atop one of the shelves at The Moon Under Water, it's author and genuine pub legend Pete Brown!After Emma Inch and Lily Waite before him, Pete is the third 'Beer Writer of the Year' to join us in the correct realm, and he is arguably Britain's most beloved writer of all things alehouse. Is there anything about beer than Pete doesn't know? Probably not; but I'm sure Landlord John and Robin will double check by asking him every possible question there is about everyone's favourite golden nectar.Want to hear an extended version of this episode, gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?

Dotun Adebayo - The Nightwatchman (Part 2)

*This is part 2 of Dotun Adebayo’s episode. Though you are free to listen in whichever order you so desire we really do recommend listening to part 1 first or things might be slightly confusing*We’re lucky here at The Moon Under Water in that we don’t have a closing time: we’re open no matter what time of day it is, which means a pint is always available. However, the same can’t be said for all pubs. Most pubs call last orders at around midnight, and for the majority of the population that’s the perfect time to head back home for their night of slumber. But what if you work through the night and finish your shift at 6am? Where do you head for your post-work pint? Well this week’s guest knows that problem all too well. It’s radio presenter, broadcaster and writer Dotun Adebayo.Dotun presents on BBC 5 Live weekday mornings between 1-5am, but that hasn’t stopped him becoming accustomed to pubs all around the world. He’s an expert on the late-night alehouse scene and all the characters that occupy it, and we’re sure that he’s going to create an incredible Pub of the Mind (I’m sure it’ll be open at reasonable times too). Want to hear an extended version of this episode, gain access to our bonus podcast ‘Behind The Cellar Door’ and support the upkeep of the pub?
