Episode 90: A conspiracy theory special!

30:10 | Aug 16th, 2018

31:44 | Aug 13th, 2018

Finally, finally, FINALLY, Pilot Neil returns. We don't know where he's been or what he's been doing but the most important thing is that he's back. We weren't angry, just disappointed. Also on your all-new edition of The Luke and Pete Show - tales...Show More

Episode 88: Why are we even friends?

32:34 | Aug 9th, 2018

Episode 87: A knife made of pasta

27:52 | Aug 6th, 2018

29:42 | Aug 2nd, 2018

29:54 | Jul 26th, 2018

31:39 | Jul 23rd, 2018

33:09 | Jul 19th, 2018

30:32 | Jul 16th, 2018

Episode 80: Fast food rigidity

31:46 | Jul 12th, 2018

We open proceedings this time around with a tale about a stork that ended up costing a charity a £2000 phone bill, and things get slowly more bizarre from there. The two main takeaways are, well, er, takeaways and names it is absolutely impossible ...Show More

Episode 79: Johnny Eggs

28:37 | Jul 9th, 2018

We think it's episode 79, but we're not sure, and Pete is still sunburnt. It's his own fault. It's sent him a bit mad, and one minute we're discussing new show ideas, and the next we're talking about bringing a different animal into the studio every ...Show More

Episode 78: Fly away Peter, fly away Paul

30:57 | Jul 5th, 2018

Straight off the bat, The Pete is accusing The Luke of wearing Bermuda shorts, an accusation that shouldn't be taking lightly. After that we hear of Peter Crouch and a kids' illusion that confuses The Pete to this day. There's time for actors that ...Show More

Episode 77: Candy cigarettes and camel urine

34:14 | Jul 2nd, 2018

The Pete is back from working the Isle of Wight Festival and is sunburnt. He's also sporting a rather snazzy Transformers tattoo. And, having managed to perform a bungee jump and survive it with both retinas intact, he's also in a chipper mood. He ...Show More

Episode 76: Chaos on the central line

35:08 | Jun 28th, 2018

33:23 | Jun 25th, 2018

Moore and Donaldson get back in their easy chairs, light a pipe each and start ruminating on the world around them once more, in episode 75 of your Luke and Pete Show. This time around there is time to talk about physical health, leading on to the ...Show More

Episode 74: Excuse me, is that my farting jar?

32:08 | Jun 21st, 2018

As the title suggests, in episode 74 we hear about one of the more bizarre habits adopted by people in England in the 17th century. But before that there's plenty to get our teeth into, including a new jingle or two, a Mencarta entry for the ages and...Show More

Episode 73: Father censorship

35:46 | Jun 18th, 2018

The chaps are back, and on your particularly chaotic latest edition of The Luke and Pete Show, we have a truly eclectic range of topics to discuss.  There's Fathers4Justice, more Anthony Bourdain chat, craft ale, more intellectual property theft fr...Show More

30:51 | Jun 7th, 2018

Episode 67: A voice on a stick

37:06 | May 28th, 2018

On this episode of your all-new The Luke and Pete Show, we take time out to imagine what it would be like if The Pete wasn't 'a voice on a stick' but a BT engineer, sent out to make internet happen in your abode. Predictably, results are 'mixed'. A...Show More

Episode 66: Do not exit your vehicle

34:25 | May 24th, 2018

School stories aplenty this time around as the great and good of The Luke and Pete Show community deliver us some of their most cringeworthy tales, we try to separate art from the artist, and there's an opportunity to imagine a young Pete gaily skipp...Show More

Episode 65: Well, it used to be a dog

26:10 | May 21st, 2018

When is a dog not a dog? That's a burning question we answer early doors on episode 65 of The Luke and Pete Show, before Pete waxes lyrical about birthdays, birthday parties and the fascinating world of speedrunning of video games. The contribution...Show More

32:42 | May 3rd, 2018

32:21 | Apr 30th, 2018

Ever wondered what it's like to be swallowed by a hippo? Well, wonder no more as your boys have found a story of a man who experienced it. We'll be honest, it doesn't sound that nice. Also, everyone's favourite drill sergeant, R Lee Ermey, has sadl...Show More

31:58 | Apr 12th, 2018

32:49 | Apr 9th, 2018

Pete's been hobnobbing with yet another celebrity, and then rants and raves about why he thinks he didn't get into Cambridge university (clue: it's not to do with his lack of intelligence); he really is becoming quite obnoxious. A tale of weird coi...Show More

Episode 52: How did Jesus die? No seriously, how did it happen?

35:37 | Apr 5th, 2018

We realise in this episode that we've sailed through Easter and not even mentioned it, so the start of Episode 52 involves us taking the time to go back over last weekend's festivities. After that, there's a trip down memory lane involving Nirvana an...Show More

Episode 46: What's happened to that donkey?

37:09 | Mar 15th, 2018

After the craft ale ridiculousness last time around Pete stays true to form and gets drunk on his own at home using Japanese liquor of some description.  Alongside that we hear of another animal partial to the Bolivian Marching Powder, a windy nigh...Show More

Episode 44: Undercover police officers, public toilets, and sheep

32:48 | Mar 8th, 2018

Episode 43: Poison/venom, Guns n Roses, and the worst Mother's Day present ever

36:17 | Mar 5th, 2018

Much like Thin Lizzy sang, the boys are indeed back in town and this time they're ruminating on the difference between poison and venom - the toxins, not the 80s bands. Two 80s bands they *are* talking about however, are Guns n Roses and Metallica, s...Show More

Episode 42: Childhood fights, boys called Paul and our very own drinking game

27:40 | Mar 1st, 2018

25:25 | Feb 26th, 2018

Episode 35: The Words Show

40:01 | Jan 29th, 2018

Episode 34: The Body Show

38:43 | Jan 22nd, 2018

It's The Body Show! Luke and Pete received an inordinate amount of emails about the human body this week and so decided to group them together into one handy to listen to episode. But before they get into the nuts and bolts of that, there's the small...Show More

46:50 | Jan 15th, 2018

42:32 | Jan 8th, 2018

53:05 | Jan 1st, 2018

47:44 | Nov 6th, 2017

53:06 | Oct 30th, 2017

47:40 | Oct 23rd, 2017

46:36 | Sep 4th, 2017

Episode 13: Good Luck/Bad Luck

49:28 | Aug 28th, 2017

Pete's done Luke a solid and prepared the show on his behalf, and if that doesn't worry you it really should. This time around the boys hang their chat on the loosest of themes but it means they take in such compelling subjects as marble racing, the...Show More
