MOST RECENT EPISODE: SEASON 03, EPISODE 6

Join Tristan, Jon and superfan guest Robin Leach for a wild ride featuring angry zoo invaders, challenging contact lenses and - REVEALED ON AIR FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER - the 10 simple secrets of the Leach Lifestyle™!


SEASON 01

THE LOST EPISODE

(In the true professional style that we intend to continue, the audio appears to cut out every thirty seconds or so - enjoy what you get, heh?)

Join Tristan and John for the season premier, joined by special guest Tom,  to dredge the depths of poorly planned and terrible executed chat,  stories, and mundane dreams.

                                                                                                                               

 

EPISODE 2

And so it continues. Joined by special guest Dan, we explore the niche topics of cave use and airport layout. Mundane topics perhaps but, when tackled with such expertly crafted lack of clarity, it's no wonder critics are already hailing us as this generation's Terry Wogan.

EPISODE 3

Join us once again as we struggle to comprehend the world of so-called 'real human beings'. In this gripping instalment we grapple with exploding coconuts, heartbroken birds and phone-in listeners.

EPISODE 4

Join the regular NLE hosts along with special guest Nandana for a rip-roaring hour of discussion and great music. Only joking, the content's still terrible and mundane, but we do talk about a hat in this one, so white-knuckle stuff.

EPISODE 5

With Jon away, Tristan chats with Laura about cereal bowls and terrible movies. Gripping stuff

EPISODE 6

It's the NEWS SPECIAL! Along with our special guest Suzan, we'll be discussing a bumper crop of weird news stories including curling, chicken catastrophes, and cinematic Cheetos.

EPISODE 7

Tonight on Near Life Experiences we chat with a man called Atticus about foolish injuries and escapades, with some animal trivia thrown into the mix.

SEASON 02

EPISODE 1

We. Are. Back (shame really, isn't it). We're kicking season 2 off in the best way we know how: a quiz, some inane chat about movies and frequent bursts of violent static as the tin-pot studio falls apart/unplugs/breaks.

This week's music theme was Autumn months.

EPISODE 4

Join Tristan, Jon and guest Kean for a rather spooky episode featuring a classic NLE head-to-head NEWS QUIZ and the most dangerous guest item yet.

EPISODE 5
