Allyson June Smith - Pie in Wigan

Update: 2018-11-19


Who ate all the pies?

Your Tour Guide for this episode is wonderful stand-up comedian Allyson June Smith, who visits Wigan in search of the best pie.

Join Allyson and podcast host Vic Elizabeth Turnbull for a travel guide like no other, as they head to a town synonymous with the meaty, pastry delights and learn why Wigan has become the pie capital of the world. They hook up with Martin Tarbuck, a bonafide pie expert, who's written a book all about pies and his quest to find the most tastiest. Martin takes a starving Allyson and Vic to sample the best pie Wigan has to offer. Includes a bumpy train ride on a vintage locomotive, George Orwell, Northern Soul, crumby faces and plenty of calories.

Warning - This episode is pretty graphic, do not listen whilst hungry.

Also, there's possibly a drinking game to be had with this episode - a shot everytime we mention the word 'pie'.
