About the show

Jon Hicks and John Oxton-King, broadcasting from deep inside the Cotswolds, UK. Think of this as a web-geek version of Gardeners Question Time. We also have regular(ish) spots such as typeface of the 'week', UX techniques we like and any geek/technology thing we care to talk about.

We are your expert panellists, agony aunts and general life-gurus, so visit the website to send us your questions, we are all ears, and the space inbetween them.


  • Episode 10

    In an attempt to streamline the process and get more episodes out more often we are experimenting with no editing. We’ve also ditched the .m4a version for the time being, hurrah!

    Recorded weeks ago, but finally edited!

  • Episode 8

    This show was recorded back in February, but only now have we had the chance to edit it and get it out. This one features Mr Clayson more, which is a joy to behold.

  • Episode 6

    Relax, we’re still podcasting! Just because we don’t knock them out in our sleep like Mr Boag, doesn’t mean we’ve stopped. Quality not quantity folks! Anyway, herewith another broadcast from the Rissington HQ.

  • Episode 5

    November 30th, 2007  |  Season 1  |  38 mins 6 secs

    Back at you with another questions-only episode. Also we have a new website n’shit, replete with desktop and iphone wallpaper of the 1940’s poster style site design.

  • Episode 4

    November 8th, 2007  |  Season 1  |  22 mins 6 secs

    A quicker, slimmer, episode this month – no extras, just the questions! We’re busy working on a ‘proper’ Rissington Podcast site (as well as all the stuff that pays of course), so we’ll keep this post short.

  • Episode Three - The Radiohead (I wish I was) Special

    October 19th, 2007  |  Season 1  |  33 mins 42 secs
  • Episode 2, the 'difficult episode'

    October 2nd, 2007  |  Season 1  |  44 mins 40 secs

    After a suprisingly successful week, reaching #3 in the iTunes Technology podcast chart, and #82 in the overall podcast chart, it’s safe to say the pressure is bloody on!

  • Episode 1

    September 20th, 2007  |  Season 1  |  30 mins 5 secs

    After the lovely warm reception to the Pilot Episode, we present the first ‘proper’ episode! It looks like we’re now committing ourselves to doing this!

  • 2007 - The Pilot Episode

    September 14th, 2007  |  Season 1  |  15 mins 11 secs

    In the inaugural podcast, listeners questions come courtesy of members of a secret society founded in the 1920s, we attempt our first joke provided by the RAF, and the featured typeface is the elegant Mostra. It’s the first go, so be easy on us!
