Conversation Street Podcast Episode 466


On this week's podcast, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 12th and the 16th April (Episodes #10295 - 10302).

There's a lot to fit in this podcast, what with last Friday's Corries being delayed, and we start off our epic Street Talk segment by chatting about Peter Barlow's various woes of the week. Whether it's discovering that he may never see his son again, having his family bicker during a meeting to find out whether he's suitable for a liver transplant or ending Friday by face planting onto the cobbles in a shower of confetti, it's fair to say that Peter's had better weeks, but hey - he managed to fit in his sixth wedding too, so it could be worse. Also having a rough time this week is poor Cathy, who takes a cue from Leanne and goes into hiding to get away from her online tormentors - let's just hope for Leanne's sake she's done a better job of keeping her hideout from Harvey a bit of a better secret. Meanwhile, Tyrone's behaviour leaves us fuming, George's attempt at the old 'give your date a bunch of flowers swiped from a dead person' trick fails spectacularly, and James does a #ClassicCorrieFakeout on Michael - though someone should probably tell him it's best suited for driving tests and GCSE results than potentially life-altering paternity test news..

In The Kabin segment, we're chuffed to hear Ali Mardell's engagement news and baffled by the mere concept of Corrie reportedly working alongside 16-year-old TikTok stars in their latest attempt to get down with the kidz, then we round the show off with more of your listener feedback.

For this week's bonus podcast, we're chuffed to be joined by Martin Sterling, a storyliner on the Street for 17 years, who's been responsible for some of the show's biggest moments of the 21st century. He chats with us about how someone who started off his working life in banking ended up rubbing shoulders with the likes of Barbara Knox and Liz Dawn, who he's most enjoyed writing for, and how the story team on Corrie manage to juggle so many balls at once when plotting out the life stories of our favourite characters.
