Live and Kicking

For our first episode of 2020, Tom takes Morgan back to the 1990s once again, as the boys discuss the nostalgia rush that is Live and Kicking.

We go through a brief history of Saturday morning kids’ TV from Tiswas to SMTV, debate the Andi Peters/Emma Forbes vs Zoe Ball/Jamie Theakston eras and try to remember which one was Trevor or Simon.

We also recall John Barrowman’s involvement, memorable phone-in jingles, and what signaled the demise of a TV institution.

Live and Kicking launched in the early 1990s, and became an institution in the UK when it came to children’s TV.

Saturdays were not complete without a dose of Live and Kicking and its cartoon lineup of X-Men, The Raccoons and more.

Check out our previous shows based on 90s kids TV, including The Animals of Farthing WoodReBoot and Batman The Animated Series.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
