The puzzling podcast where a gaggle of geographically diverse chums come together, have a drink - and work together to solve a home made escape room of the ears.
Jon sits down with Sarah, Mark, Colin and Jeff from CTRL+ALT+ESC and chew the proverbial cud within spitting distance of their very own Escape Room Bar. Topics include Why notes Are Important, Knowing your Puzzling Weaknesses, Pet Hates, Disastrously stupid customers and a Five Year Plan (that doesn't involve a failed agricultural revolution leading to the starvation of millions). It's all here!
Join Jon as he ventures out into the real world for a sit down with CTRL+ALT+ESC of Margate, one of our favourite rooms! Apologies for the tardyness here, folks, editor Jon has spent the last few days intensively rehearsing, and then being Andy Warhol at a charity Gala Ball. Why? No idea. But someone offered him money to do it. So he did.
The gang find themselves trapped in a time loop, and need to get themselves out of this particular jam before they get themselves Spaghettified.Featuring:
Join Mike, Bailey and Annekoos as they lick their wounds after commiting manslaughter in Jon's room last week. Topics of discussion include the nerve wracking diatery advice surrounding pregnancy, the human need for causality, everything bad that Alan has ever done, and of course, the ease with which Escapees can be distracted from what's really important...
Spoilers ahead! If you haven't already, hop back and listen to our two part RPG special, The Bourne Kerfuffle. Or don't, we're not your handler.
As well as the debrief, we're talking TTRPG mechanics, and some red hot media reccos.
Also...it's the last episode I'm producing before going on parental hiatus! Still going to crop up in some episodes as a guest, but I'll be taking a few months off production as my wee bambino comes in to...
After last week's disaster in the Desert, we descend on The Golden Draught - the only pub in the The Infinite Escape Room metaverse that's carbon neutral, and connects the privvies to the pumps.
Jon, Jamie, Anakos and Dom are stuck in Mike's horrid team building desert, and with a well researched and perfectly mimicked celebrity guest...
Join the team as they reflect on last weeks Creepy Mansion puzzle, a room that felt very nicely polished so long as you don't look at it too closely. The discussion then moves on to consider the English weaknessfor morally corrupt but charming upper class charlatans, chat about rifling and what it did for the musket and the bizarre impact that banning cycling helmets might have on the roads.
And all of without any of us bursting in...
Another month, another cheery show by Jon. Themes for this week: Death, Murder, Eternal Rest in the Grave, Grammar Pedantry and disastrous International Relations.
Featuring, Dom, Aled, Annekoos and eventually an Estate Agent called Connor.
It's the pubisode, where Mike and Jamie are joined by James Charnock and Nic Whitton to:
It's a good natter, grab a brew and join us.
Crumbs, jingo and flippery! It's Dad's army, and he's only gorn and bladdy locked some time travellers in a hut!
This week Jamie is joined by Nic Whitton and James Charnok in escaping Mike's frightfully patriotic take on the Home Guard, Britain's finest armed militia.
There's a lot of assets in this episode, you'll find all of the visual ones below:
Sorry seems to be the hardest word. Especially when you were right. Totally right. And justified. AND NOT OBTUSE AT ALL.
