At their totally achievable (not-at-all over ambitious) plans for REVOLUTION WINTER! Thrill! To their unimpeachably cool choices in the end of year poll of polls. Then shake your head sadly when you realise that this is actually what they did on New Year's eve.

It's Chriiiiistmassssss!

Still looking for that annoying drone that ruined your holiday? Look no further. It’s the mega-festive 2018 Christmas special edition of Wolfmania the Podcast.

With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree Wolfman and Timpsy rejoice in the things that they’ve seen (none of which, disappointingly for what’s supposed to be a film podcast, appear to be films).

With three big musical exclusives from West Midlands, Comfort and Joy Machine and By George, the boys are here to accompany your Christmas Day funtivities, whether that’s feeeling your presents under the tree, roasting chestnuts on an open fire or driving miles in the pouring rain to visit relatives you sort-of-despise and pray won’t talk about Brexit...

Plus! Snow! Sleigh! Presents! Advanced Social Media Diagnostics! Nord! Christmas!

Kick Him in the Dick!

Check-ch-check-check-check-ch-check-it-out! It's the hip hop holiday episode of Wolfmania the Podcast sort of featuring very special guests The Beastie Boys (Squeeeeeeee!) As if that's not enough excitement, your Beastly Brothers Wolfman and Timpsy put the dissing and cussing into long-winded film discussion as they tackle the 1993 rhyming and stabbing Emilio Estevez 'classic' Judgment Night.

Never in the long and and storied history of notionally film-based podcasting has an episode so artistically mirrored its subject: bumbling brosephs being dinkheads at night time, half an hour longer than is strictly necessary and essentially just an excuse for a ridiculous rap-metal soundtrack...

Ah yes, the soundtrack. Not only do we take you on a tour through the genre-bending delights of the ground-breaking grunge-hop Judgment Night OST, we have THREE (count 'em) EXCLUSIVE tracks not heard on the original album: Less Than Drake v Geoff Leppard, Cyprus Phil's "Sticky Green Vape Machine" and, oh yes, the frankly frightening: "Kick Him in the Dick".

SHIT BUSINESS

Holy Lords a'leaping! my utterly unbelieveable rock band WEST MIDLANDS have brand new music for you. And it's free! Happy Christmas!

You can find our horns-aloft Health Goth anthem 'Shit Business at the L.A. Fitness' hiding behind door 10 of the (ever-excellent) Joyzine Advent Calendar. Download it now and mosh the fudge out of your way to work.

Shit Business at the L.A. Fitness is the first song to be taken from West Midlands' 2019 album: 'The Complete History of Popular Music: 1984 - 2038' which is pretty much the only record you're going to need for the next decade or two. I am not even slightly joking.

Spider Hyphen Man

Uncool at school and majorly moping over the girl next door, Wolfmania’s world is turned upside down when it gets bitten by some radioactive chat. Instantly imbued with a freewheeling chemistry and uncanny comic timing (our jingle sense is tingling!) but touched by tragedy, Wolfman and Timpsy learn that with great gags come even greater laffs.

In an out-of-character 2h 11m of stuttering sincerity, the boys pay humble homage and trembling tribute to Marvel maestro Stan ‘The Man’ Lee, and at least one of them watches Sam Raimi’s swing-o-rilliant first Spider-Man movie all the way to the end. But that’s not all! (That’s not even nearly all.) Timpsy titillates us and dishes the dirt on the Dater’s Handbook, while Wolfman takes a swing at the twin evils of toxic masculinity and the flu bug.

THE WICKER MAN(S)

Remember, remember the 14th of November with a slightly belated, slow burning, bonfire episode of Wolfmania the Podcast: Season Two: Sickbed Cinema. With a big box of fireworx and minimal duds your favourite well-stuffed Guys Wolfman and Timpsy fan the flames of filmic debate with their hot takes on the classic 1973 scorched-copper caper The Wicker Man and the diabolical (I want to say) 2006 version where Nicholas Cage steals a bike, puts on a bear suit, punches out a load of women and then gets murdered by bees.

But that's not all! The boys introduce their ambitious new proper-cooking, sitcom Buns of Anarchy. Plus! The Sorceror's Apprentice! Last Week's Punchlines Today! Proper Football Men! The Hale and Pace Movie! Social shoutouts! Celebrity Pedalpast (Aqua Edition)! Corby Trouser-Press! And special musical guest STAGZ!

Poltergeist!

They're here! Wolfman and Timpsy that is, for a creepy, kooky, spectacularly spooky Halloween special edition of Wolfmania the Podcast: Sickbed Cinema. This week your favourite pair of scary clowns find something amiss in their suburban bliss when they unleash hell (and a sort-of-fun quiz) discussing the classic 1982 Steven (Steve) Spielberg shocker Poltergeist. (Spoiler alert: it's sort of like a goth E.T.).

But that's not all! The boys are joined in studio by very special musical guest 'Less Than Drake' for two new monster jams, Timpsy reads a terrifying bedtime story and Wolfman burns the pizza.

We. Are. Back.

Would you believe it? Wolfmania The Podcast is back, Back, BACK! For an all-new! All-different! (mostly sort-of-the-same) senses-shattering second season, and it all starts right here.

After an extended lay-off Wolfman, Timpsy and Big Paws the podcast cat are back in town and trying to work out what they’re going to do now that the A - Z of Everything is over. Their answer will leave you BREATHLESS. (If you’re easily surprised by people announcing that they’re going to be running a film club podcast from now on).

The Electrifying Conclusion

So, this is the end beautiful friends. With inches to spare, Andrew and Tim reach the last stop on their alphabetical joke journey, arriving at the electrifying conclusion of the A - Z of Everything. The side-splitting, senses-shattering, slightly emo, LAST episode of Wolfmania the Podcast.

And today they answer the BIG question that fans have been asking since day one.... What would it be like if ZZ Top went to the zoo?

Plus! Zombies! A cliffhanger ending! Fudge Factory! Has it come to this! Curry live! Polly and Dolly! Big Paws! Tom Jones! Boyz II Men 2 (AET) An actual joke!

Happy New Year

It's late, you've lost your mates and some old bloke with a beard is bleating on about his albums of the year. No. Not the New Year's Eve Party you're about to go to... It's your one-man, year-end, will-this-do Wolfmania the Podcast.

Episode Y comes in at a miraculously muscular 31 minutes - scientifically proven to be the perfect amount of time for having a large glass of wine in the bath without anyone finding out. So, I'd stay in and do that if I were you. It looks horrible out there.

This week we ask two very important questions: One: Where's Tim? And Two: Could next week really be the last ever episode?!

Jeopardy! 

IT'S CHRIIIIIIIISSTMAAAAAAAAS!

Ho! Ho! Holy sh*t! The Wolfmania Xmas Special is here. And it's seasonally stuffed with all the gifts, gags and years of seething unspoken resentment you'd expect from 51 minutes in the company of your family.

This being a showbiz Christmas, of course, we are joined in studio by some very special guests (no spoilers, but its NEW BLOODY ORDER! doing a totally exclusive Christmas song. Yes. Really!) and at the end there's a big musical number, and everybody learns a lesson.

Plus! X-Wings (we've seen Star Wars. There's hard Porg-talk) X-Men (Will Hugh Jackman honour his booking?) X-clusives - The Wolfmania All-Stars featuring the Hell is for Heroes Choir and two actual members of Bananarama. Bloody hell!

Happy holidays!

NEW MUSIC!

Do you hear what I hear? There's a new Andrew Wolfman record out on Christmas Day. And you can pre-order it at iTunes RIGHT NOW. http://itunes.apple.com/album/id1321749149?ls=1&app=itunes

Critics are calling 'When I Go' a heartbreaking work of staggering genius and pitch black seasonal ill will. A punishing 5 minutes and 17 seconds of DIY death-rock disco. Better than Star Wars. And only 79p.

Bloody hell!

World of Wolfcraft

Andrew Wolfman's peaceful and solitary existence gets upended when he encounters Timpsy, a young farm-boy with a high midichlorian count. His desire to learn the ways of the Wolf forces Andrew to make a decision that changes their lives forever. Meanwhile, tremble-lips emo Vader, Captain Panto and Vyvyan off the Young Ones lead the New Order in an all-out assault against the 10-man Resistance for supremacy of the galaxy

Oh no, hold on. With a world of 'W's dawning in front of them, Andrew and Timpsy get stuck into a 90 minute game of 'What's in the Box' which opens up a whole world of big questions. Like: "Do you like Paloma Faith" and "Jason Bourne and Matthew Bourne, right? Which one's the assassin and which one does the ballet?" Hilarity and Euro 2008 chat ensues.

These are the things that I will keep.

V.I.P.

After last week's emo disaster-thon Andrew and Tim veer back on to safer ground - half-remembering things from the past, rock hard pizza, plugs for the shop - when they are joined in studio by Very Important Person Mike Nothing.

Mike joins Tim for the pilot of the new BBC Sunday night show 'Round Anglesey with Tim and Mike' while Andrew opens up the Van Halen Time Capsule and unearths a Sausage Revolution.

Featuring for the first-time-online (and possibly the last time) songs by The Fizzy Corporation, The Peasants are Revolting and All Aboard the Eggbasket, this is one for the ages. Well worth sticking with for the bit where, after exactly two hours, Mike Nothing decides he's finally had enough to drink and just walks off to get an Uber. A masterclass in broadcasting.

Bost

Not going to lie, this week's Wolfmania is a pretty difficult listen. It's probably not for the faint hearted.

Speaking of which, this episode Andrew gets some bad news, and struggles to talk about it. Don't worry though, he has no such trouble chatting about the movie S.M.A.R.T. starring Tim, or giving top model David Gandy the business. Oh, and he's written a song. Instead of a will. This is probably quite uneasy listening.

To make matters weirder, in an out-of-character burst of diversity, the boys are joined in studio by an actual woman, their great mate Kitty Somerset. Unfortunately, she has taken a vow of silence - which bodes well for the hot new podcast Kitty, Timpsy and the Dressing Gown Guy.

TRUE BROMANCE

It’s T time in the Encyclopedia of Everything and there’s True Bromance in the air as Andrew and Tim are joined by very-special-guest-host, nineties heart-throb, Christian Slater (Mr Robot, Gleaming the Cube).

Plus! The gang get massively small when they are turned into six-inch Star Wars figures by a mysterious Russian scientist! There’s Trick or Treat trauma in the Wild West Midlands! Trials and Tribulations on the Heritage Rock Trail! Timpsy Time! Throwing up! Weezer! A friendly witch! Jimmy Page toilets! Promotional Drinks Clowns! Paradise Papers the movie! Celebrity Pedalpast! The Smashing Pumpkins! A half-hearted apology! Big Paws the cat gets stuck in a box! Bib Fortuna!

Plus! Literally, unbelievable new music from Patrick Stewart. Yes, that PATRICK STEWART! And the staggering new supergroup Perry, Perry, Perry tackle a club classic.

PIZZA PARTY

It’s someone’s birthday in the Internut Space Station and controls are set for spoiled baby in this week’s very special episode of Wolfmania the Podcast

Andrew, Tim and Big Paws throw a big podcast party (and then an even bigger strop when only Dave Storey the rocking Geordie shows up). There is plenty of potential to ‘feel your presence’ as the gang exchange gifts and talk Star Wars, plus a a bit of “no Luke, I am your Father” when one of those gifts turns out to require a DNA sample.

Plus! We unveil the mammoth new heavy metal / David Mamet rock opera Glengarry Glen Danzig! Brainy Fun Time! Celebrity Pedalpast! England’s Finest! Party legends! A Carnival of Souls! Funnel of Spit! And (at 24m 19s) inarguably, the greatest pop song ever recorded… Non-Stop Pizza Party.
