Americans Asterios Kokkinos and Amanda Meadows take on Brits Andy Zaltzman and Josie Long for ice-cream tasting, extreme wildlife shows and slash/fic with Dave Holmes.

As our respective nations mark Veterans and Remembrance Day, Baskin Robins has released a really inappropriate tribute. Doc Brown and The Doctor get sensual and consensual and we ask: do sharks have taints?

Written by Sarah Morgan.

Asterios Kokkinos wants to recommend KC Green and Anthony Clark’s webcomic Back and to plug his own book The Enemies of Twenty-Something Mega Man.

Amanda Meadows wants to plug Devastator Press and their new anime / Japanese popculture special, Otaku and recommends John Darnielle (of The Mountain Goats) new novel, Wolf in White Van, which pretty much everyone else seems to be recommending too. Catch his Bullseye interview about the novel, here.

Andy Zaltzman wants to plug The Bugle Podcast and his own Satirist For Hire tour dates. Andy recommends cricket.

Josie Long sort of doesn’t want to recommend TV show, The Following, but is currently watching it anyway. She’s enthusiastic about UK comic book artists Tom Humberstone and Stephen Collins, both of whom have just released new collections. Josie’s going to be touring in 2015, find dates here.

And finally, Dave Holmes is on Twitter @DaveHolmes and hosts his live quiz show, The Friday Forty at LA’s Meltdown Theatre on the second Friday of every month and recommends the band Gentlemen Rogues.
