Due to incredible demand (Tom did keep on!), we’ve put together a video for our second podcast ‘Combatting Loneliness’. In this podcast, we amble aimlessly and avoid any cohesive points or structured arguments and you’ll have nothing really to gain from listening too it. There is always the reprieve of listening to the full debut single ‘Isolation Explosion’ at the end which we thought was reasonable. Enjoy.
They would love to say that the demand for the No Side Effects second podcast forced them back into the studio to quench the publics desire for more fascinating insights. The reality, however, sees Tom and Ade continue their self indulgent, somewhat pointless ramblings that contribute next to nothing to understanding, all in a vain attempt to promote their first single “Isolation Explosion’, the full version of which can now be heard at the end of this podcast.
If you want to listen to the verbal equivalent of drying paint, please click on the link below. You’ll be unpleasantly surprised.
The following are links to items discussed in the podcast:

The Samaritans A 24 hour helpline for those needing to talk

The debut podcast sees Tom and Adrian chatting around a variety of subjects and questions including; external happiness, social interaction, social anxiety, social avoidance, being overweight, divorce, holidays and custard doughnuts. This is a relaxed, informal discussion with a dubious level of understanding and sense.
