Conversation Street Podcast Episode #530


On our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 4th and the 8th July (Episodes #10681 - 10686). In fact, that's pretty much all we manage this week - for various reasons, we've had to make this a Street Talk only episode, but it's still a good couple of hours long even so!

The main story this week was the big wedding of Fiz and Phill. Many of us had been wondering for a while whether it would actually take place or if she would instead opt for the much anticipated reunion with Tyrone. Well, it turned out to actually be a bit of both - and there are definitely some strongly opposing views on the podcast about that particular outcome! Also this week, Audrey puts the Platts to the test when she reveals she's leaving all her cash to WARTS (excellent callback, by the way!), Steve manages to get himself scammed when he pays for someone to fix his roof, and Spider follows in the footsteps of Wendy and Stephen by coming back for two episodes before disappearing off screen again for a bit - but be certainly loved what little of him we did see!


It's been a a very long time coming, but in this week's bonus podcast, we finally get round to chatting about the episodes of Corrie that we've been watching from the 2005-2009 era. This takes us very close to the start of the podcast, so parts of it felt very recent to us, but how did this affect our enjoyment of the show? This period saw the rise of Demon David, the violent death of Charlie Stubbs, and the beginnings of Tony Gordon's descent into villainy. There were also some fantastic shorter stories too, like the appearance of Norris' estranged brother Ramsay. We also got the introduction of two of our then favourite characters, Carla and Becky, but which of them did we find a bit of a disappointment the second time round? Overall, this may not have been a golden era for Corrie in our eyes, but we still had a blast chatting about our time watching it, so we hope you enjoy listening!
