Adam talks to British writer Caitlin Moran about driving, life on line, feminism, wee wee drips, a painful memory of Paul McCartney and a great one of Lady Gaga. Adam also tells Caitlin about some of the responses to a recording of his daughter talking about Princess Leia's slave dress when she was 5.

Just discovered your Podcast and I'm slogging my way through from the start! Just heard this one and clocked the mention of "Sultans of Ping". I thought they were fairly obscure but then I'm not in show biz!
Anyway I made this vid with my kids last year and thought it may give you a chuckle.
hope you like it, hold on for the special effects towards the middle.
All the best
UKIP voting scrote. Nice.
Liberal bigotism at its finest. I think lots of people need to stop trying to figure and "fix" the world and the human condition in one lifetime.
I re-listened to this as a friend gave me her book - how to build a woman - on loan for a read, and realised it was her off your podcast! :)
I wonder if lady gaga uses loo roll or washes her hands?
Hi Adam, my husband and I are huge fans of yours for many years. I am absolutely loving your podcasts and really looking forward to the next lot. I was so sorry to hear about Baddad. My dad died just a couple of days before him and so it has been very moving to hear you talk about it on the podcasts. Hope you're doing ok, it's a very difficult time xxx
Good evening Professor Buckles,
I admit I was always suspicious of Caitlin Moran back in the day.
She was far too young to be writing in my favourite mags and swanning about on TV and such and generally being far too clever by half. And by "clever by half" I mean at least eighteen times clevererer and wittiererer than I will ever be in the whole world ever.
Also, I still to this day remember reading her introduction of the band Suede in a Glastonbury handout (in a manky tent waiting for the pot noodle to come to the boil) in which she off-handedly dissed the greatest band ever to have ever done anything ever, Carter USM!!!!!
Did Ms. Moran win me over in the first five minutes by name checking The Sultans of Ping F.C.? Obviously she did. Did I then enjoy a thoroughly great chat? Of course I did. Am I some sort of buffoon??? NO!!!
Thanks for this series of podcasts. I will just add that you write the greatest jingles ever. I keep singing "I am a maaaaaaan" at inopportune times, usually in a post-office queue or a police line up.
A note about Comments
Hello Podcats and Blog friends,
I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.
