On this ornithologicall edition of Plato's Retreat Kris and Rob talk Sport, Emmerdale...and sparrows vs myna birds?
Kris has been down at the record store, bringing some new scores with him. A husky sounding Pearl gets her own special intro at 5:30pm, and Finn Dingle from 16Tun is back for the Flagon Wagon (and beyond!).
Drawing winter to a close, Kris and Rob (and Pearl from 5:30) return after a rude root canal catastrophe prevented last week's show, and a few of the listenership kindly share some of their own dental distasters.
Rob fires up Sport and Emmerdale (now also uploaded as its own segment), and the crew are all happy to welcome back the Prodigal Son of Beer, Finn Dingle, who joins them for the 16Tun Flagon Wagon beer review.

To prevent the Emmerdale review from becoming Kim Tate reveiw (the most hated character in English television), this week Rob runs us down on the Sharma family's chocolate factory fiasco, scream-ups at the pub, and just a little bit of KT news.
In this edition of the critically acclaimed Emmerdale review Rob describes an exciting road trip in which multiple characters end up in the beautiful city of Belfast, birthplace of the Titanic. In Belfast, Marlon and Paddy confront Paddy's father Bear-Wolf in a pub, before moving into a having a really great chat about pies.
In this edition of the Emmerdale Review Mr Bollox fills us in on the attempted frame-up of Kane Dingle by "the scariest man I've seen on television". Kris and "Rootin' Tootin' Pollard" also have a bit of fun with the Emmerdale Wild West name generator.
