Episode 11, What We Miss from Home & What Poland Does Better

As it says on the tin folks!

Blue Monday has just passed and the post-Christmas/January Blues ain’t easy to shake off.

With Nick back in the UK for the weekend, we have a natter about the things we miss from home, the things we don’t and what Poland does better.

G’luck, don’t be shy about getting in touch. We all love to hear from you.

2014’s Final Episode of The Poland Podcast


This week on the Poland Podcast we bid a fond-ish farewell to 2014.

We discuss New Years Eve, love it or hate it, it happens every year. It’s just the timing of it that’s awkward.

There’s a lesson in Geography and one in swearing.

We air our wishes for our new homeland in 2015.

We even fall foul of making a unified resolution………kinda.

Hope you all have a mighty News Years Eve and see you all in 2015.




Episode 5, The Christmas Special


Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls and other occupants of this god-forsaken galaxy, welcome one and all to the very special Christmas episode of The Poland Podcast.

It’s all here, we complain about Polish in-laws ruining, or at least attempting to ruin, Christmas.

Drinking over the Christmas period in Poland, or the lack thereof.

Presents! The absolute practically of gift giving in Poland. Who needs an Xbox One when you can have an axe?

Carp! Feckin carp, we get to the bottom of this disgusting fish and the vast amounts of food consumed in Poland on Christmas Eve.

We sample a few well-known Polish Christmas carols, such as:

Przybiezeli do Betlejem

Wsrod Nocnej Ciszy

Z Kopyta Kulig Rwie

Bedzie Koleda Skaldowie

All of which are nothing but lovely.

And finally we come up with a new badly-needed tradition for St. Stephen’s Day….or ‘Boxing Day’ if you insist on being difficult.

Merry Christmas everybody, hope you all have a mighty one. Fingers crossed we’ll get some snow in Poland!


Episode 4, Winter in Poland, Cranky Old Women and Jestés Bogiem, a Polish Hip Hop movie

Hello Podders!


What a Podcast we’ve got this week for you to sink your ivories into.

First up, Winter in Poland. The dreaded cold and how to cope with it……with alcohol, strong, vigorous amounts of it.

We are united in our hatred of old Polish women. You’d prefer to spend a weekend at a tax collector conference than five minutes with these mohair and church obsessed auld Biddies.

We have our usual quirky new story about a man who broke into the pub he had been drinking in to keep drinking.

Finally, we tackle an important Polish film about an influential Polish hip hop group, Paktofonika, Jestés Bogiem.

Don’t be shy about getting in touch and don’t forget the Blooper Reel at the end of the show.
