URY Welcome Week 2020: Virtual Fair

With everyone stuck inside, we were live from our homes, providing the sound to the YUSU (York University Student Union) Fairs. I was asked/I volunteered readily to take part, so here I am making sure that no-one else would ever want to listen to me again…! Presenters: Michael Grace, Joseph Morrall and Keoni D’SouzaProducers: Isaac… Continue reading URY Welcome Week 2020: Virtual Fair

Cup 5, Master Origin India: Intense and spicy

My exams – or ‘alternative assessments’ – are now over, so I found some free time, at last! Recorded near the start of the lockdown, in cup 5 my guest Jimmy and I talk a little about life in Toronto and play a rather self-explanatory game called What am I talking about? which actually wasn’t that straightforward. But, let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be, would it…?

Cup 4, English Breakfast: Golden and well-rounded

Cup 4 is the overflow stuff from the last episode – yes, we really did record so much! Listen to the rest of the Welsh maraca game and hear João talk about Asturias (for a bit). In a surprising turn of events, the drink in the title comes from my guest – a Twinings English Breakfast Tea, drunk late after the watershed.

Cup 3, Praline Especial Brazil: Chocolatey and nutty

The third cup brings together two people who haven’t spoken in yonks. João and I discuss bourbon(s) (creams) and Asda Smart Price meatballs, and play another game with maracas that had to be cut short and shoved into another episode because we were going on for too long! Today’s coffee – an intensity of 8 – comes from Taylors of Harrogate, who describe this coffee as “a big, beautiful Brazilian roast, like sinking your teeth into a hazelnut praline.”

Cup 2, Kazaar: Exceptionally intense and syrupy

Goodness, he’s only gone and done it when you all thought he’d given up or forgotten about it! Cup 2 is a Kazaar, a very strong (12) brew made with both Arabica and Robusta beans. Rachael is his guest – join them as they talk a bit about languages and play a game based on products from Ikea.
