When I'm alone with only dreams of you that won't come true, what'll I do? Listen to this hour of drivel, that's what.The bad boys of podcasting reconvene to expertly and sensitively analyse 'Women's Troubles' - the stunning series 1, episode 4 of Chigwell's very own 'Birds of a Feather'.Whilst Sharon has sex in daring places with new lover Dave, Tracey  believes she is pregnant though when Dorien takes her to see a doctor  and the results of the pregnancy testing kit come through it turns out  to be Sharon who is expecting and who later has an abortion, to her  boyfriend's dismay.(We didn't write this synopsis, we c+p'ed it from Mark's favourite IMDB where it was obviously submitted by someone whose keyboard has a sentient space bar and is missing all of the puncuation keys)Anyway, enjoy. Let's have some fun!Play along with this weeks One Foot in The Game - Birds of a Pleatherwww.greatbritishshitcom.comTwitter / Instagram / Facebook@britishshitcom / #shitcom Send in a voice message:https://anchor.fm/shitcom/message

It also asks the question no one expected - what the fuck are ‘pig eggs’?Oh yeah, Mark stands by his claim that they’re making Poitín. He has zero evidence.Play along with this weeks One Foot in The Game - Kendal, Keith or Kendrick (Lamar). www.greatbritishshitcom.comTwitter / Instagram / Facebook@britishshitcom / #shitcom Send in a voice message:https://anchor.fm/shitcom/message
