Season two of my favourite podcast comes to an end in typical style with a flurry of racism, and a battery of insults directed at anonymous/famous man Chet Hanks. Join us in wondering what he ever did to deserve this.
It can't be miserable optimism - so it must be Cheerful Despair! #NotMyTagLine
(Episode recorded in July 2016, before Earth's last reserves of hope were depleted).
Cheerful Despair, that pod-cast you forgot you subscribed to, returns. It's honestly better just to listen and not make a scene. We'll just leave a small tip and not eat here again.
Good night and good truck.

On this episode:
Until next time - may your trucks bring all the boys to the yard.
As relentless as the passing of time and the approach of a referendum on the political destiny of this Moderately Good Britain - so arrives another episode of Cheerful Despair, featuring:

Trucking - Excelsior!

Hurtling straight at your ears like a bullet from a golden gun (which, presumably is either less dangerous or certainly no more dangerous than a bullet from a gun made of another metal) it's the Cheerful Despair Podcast!

In the final episode of Cheerful Despair, prepare yourselves for:
Until we meet again, possibly in a future life, in a parallel universe, don't know where, don't know when, but I know we'll meet again some sunny day, keep on trucking.
Welcome to the fifth and second to final episode of season one of the Cheerful Despair podcast. In this episode:
