Conversation Street Podcast Episode 417


On the latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast in the UK between the 4th and the 8th May (Episodes #10,057 - 10,059).

After last Friday's shocking cliffhanger where she was driven to attack Geoff with a wine bottle, Yasmeen has to face a grilling from Weatherfield's most tenacious police officer, DS Abney. Did you act in self-defence? Was Geoff still holding the knife when you hit him? What do you think of my amazing fringe? It's a tough week for Yasmeen - thanks goodness she has Imran to back her up! Also this week, Weatherfield hosts yet another bizarre award ceremony, whose recipients appear just as randomly picked as the kids they get to do the speeches, and, for some reason, Leanne is concerned when Oliver comes back messy from messy play.

Next up on the podcast we take a look through this week's Corrie news in The Kabin, including a couple of quotes from Ian Macleod's press interview - filtered for spoilers, of course! - and we finish off the show with some of your reactions to the latest Geoff and Yasmeen developments in the feedback section.

To mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day, the feature discussion for Episode 417 of the podcast is all about Coronation Street during World War 2. Using information taken from Daran Little and Maggie Sullivan's books, the Official Coronation Street magazine from 1995 and, of course, that repository of all Corrie knowledge, Corriepedia, we chat about the history of the Street that's been created for the years between 1939 and 1945, including what went down on the 8th May 1945. We also discuss the legacy of World War 2 and its effect on some of the characters in the show, like Elsie Tanner and Percy Sugden.
