029: The Edward Snowden of the Waterways aka Lindsey Hood

 

 

‘Angry Boater’ will be live at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, twice daily, from Aug 6th to 26th (not Tuesdays). Showtimes are 3.45 pm to 4.45 pm at Finnegans Wake and 7.25 pm to 8.25 pm at City Cafe.

 

 

In this contentious and probably libellous episode, Lindsey Hood and I discuss recent changes at Springfield Marina, Carpenters Lock, London Moorings, Newbies, cake, King Salami & The Cumberland 3, The Victoria Park Facilities, Non Return Valves, Mis-functioning Water Pumps, being buried with your pets, dancing donkeys & Broxbourne.

Despite all the talk, Lindsay did not join me for cake afterwards. I ate a chocolate & pistachio brownie – alone.

In November 2017, as I was struggling to handle a tricky mooring situation in Little Venice, another boater helped me out. This was my first meeting with Pancho. He’s helpful … and from Peru. He’s lived on his boat for just 6 months. 

In this podcast, we talk about being helpful, Faith and the nature of community – online,  in London and on the waterways. Pancho talks about his best friend’s suicide and how this affected his outlook. Joel talks about 2 incidents he experienced on the Hammersmith & City line this week. 

There are several references to an earlier conversation that was supposed to appear at the end of the episode but the audio file was accidentally deleted. The interesting stuff is all in this section though.

  • Now in its 4th year.

Think your life isn’t going to plan?

Comedian Joel Sanders used to perform in Vegas.

Now he’s back in London…. living on a canal boat.

‘The Angry Boater’ is the original, boatilicious comedy show about what it’s really like to abandon the land for life on the water.

“Jews DON’T live on boats!” he was warned.

Just for once, maybe he should have listened….

027: New London boater meets old jaded one.

‘Angry Boater’ will be live at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, twice daily, from Aug 6th to 26th (not Tuesdays). Showtimes are 3.45 pm to 4.45 pm at Finnegans Wake and 7.25 pm to 8.25 pm at City Cafe.

Barry Ferns has been on his narrowboat for just 3 weeks. He has already had a window smashed & a solar panel stolen. 

Joel has been boating  for 7 years. Once someone knocked on his boat at 3am and ran off.

This week, they are both moored in West London.

On top of boating, Joel & Barry also have the comedy world in common. Joel was a comedy promoter from 1994 to 2012. Barry is the brains behind the Angel Comedy Club – (http://www.angelcomedy.co.uk)

Even though they’d met before, this was the first time they talked properly.

Barry has new boater questions. Joel has old boater answers. They swap their stories and discuss boats, comedy & more.

It’s a fascinating conversation which, as well as covering a range of boating issues, also reveals how Joel got to perform in Vegas and stories of rubbing shoulders with comedy’s elite.

Barry reminds Joel of his past but is Joel what Barry Ferns is destined to become?
