Conversation Street Podcast Episode #534


On our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 1st and the 5th August (Episodes #10705 - 10709).

This week, Ryan followed in his dear mum's footsteps, continuing the proud Connor tradition of making a hash job of robbing the Bistro. Yes, it was all a bit silly, but we love both Ryan and Debbie, so we just sat back and enjoyed the ineptness of it all, and we're looking forward to seeing where things go next. Also this week, we were treated to the glorious introduction of the latest in the line of never before mentioned Shuttleworths - this time, George's sister Glenda, whose confident debut on the cobbles left us keen to see what the producers have up their sleeves for her. All that plus Sally's kitchen porn habit, some intriguing details about Stu's supposed past misdemeanours and the prospect of Leo bogging off to Canada.. all in all, we found it a pretty decent week!

Up next on the podcast it's the Kabin, with the news that OG Bistro Ninja Kym Marsh will be joining the ranks at Strictly this autumn, plus we pay tribute to Norman Frisby, Granada's press officer in the 60s who was responsible for spreading the word of Corrie in its early days and who sadly passed away recently at the age of 94. We finish off the podcast with more of your lovely feedback, including another voice mail from Canada and some immediate thoughts on Glenda from listeners.

For this week's bonus podcast, we pay tribute to Aussie soap Neighbours, which broadcast its final episode last week, by looking at all the links Coronation Street has had with Australia over the years. From Australian characters like Ian Latimer and Hannah 'Fake Katie' Gilmore to the time that Pat Phoenix, Jack Leslie and Doris Speed took a trip Down Under, we make as many connections as we can find to our Aussie cousins. After that, we take the opportunity to share our thoughts on the final few episodes of Neighbours, then finish off the show by chatting to Vaya from the Neigbuzz podcast about the unfortunate demise of her favourite soap.
