In our second week up north, we continue our tour of Corrie filming locations past and present. From Speedwell Cavern, visited by the Rovers regulars in 1965, to more recent locales like the site of Pat Phelan's murder mill, we've got it all covered. As well as that, we check out the pub where Tony Warren wrote some of the early Coronation Street episodes, and meet up for a chat with a few more Corrie cast members. There's also a YouTube version of this episode, packed with footage and photos, so why not give that a watch too?
August 8th, 2020
In our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 3rd and the 7th August 2020 (Episodes #10,096 - 10,098).
This week, the big question is what has Geoff done to Elaine? After an angry confrontation with her in the ginnel, the Great Magnifico makes his ex-wife disappear - but what exactly has happened to her? Meanwhile, Sarah squirms as the police question her about Gary's accident last week, Leanne struggles to hold it together when an old friend from ante-natal asks her about Oliver, and Gemma puts her foot in it with Abi.
There's not much going on news-wise this week, so we decided not to include a Kabin segment; instead, we skip over to the feedback section, where we hear from some listeners who tell us about how certain stories on Corrie at the moment are reflecting their real life experiences.

For our bonus podcast this week, we chat about our week up in Manchester, touring the city and looking for key locations linked to our favourite soap. We've checked out the remains of the old set at Quay Street, seen Corrie's new home in Media City, and visited filming locations such as Bury Football Club, St Mary's Church and Tatton Park - listen as we share our thoughts on the experience, or even better, have a watch of the YouTube version of the podcast, which is packed full of video footage we've taken on the trip!

On the latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Corrie broadcast in the UK between the 27th and the 31st July.
This week, Gary does his best to cover his tracks when he realises that Bernie picked up a particularly valuable treasure during her trip to the woods, but when Sarah discovers the gruesome truth about Rick's comeuppance and tries to call the police, it's Gary's life that ends up being put on the line. Meanwhile, Ed's gutted when he finds out that Aggie can't come home for their wedding anniversary celebrations, and Elaine drops a bombshell on Tim - but is it enough to turn him away from Team Geoff?
In The Kabin, we share our thoughts on the news that Corrie is to return to six episodes a week in mid-September, and we finish off by hearing more of your reactions to how Corrie is tackling the pandemic, in the feedback section.

For this week's bonus podcast, we have a character profile of Renee Roberts. This shopkeeper may be best known for her grisly death rather than anything she actually got up to on the Street, but now that we've had the chance to watch some of the episodes she was in in the late 70s, we thought it was the perfect time to take a look back at her time on Corrie and share our thoughts.
July 25th, 2020
On our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 20th and the 24th July (Episodes #10,090 - 10,092).
This was the week we'd been looking forward to for quite a while - Friday in particular, which was the first episode to be fully filmed since lockdown, and therefore make reference to coronavirus. We start the Street Talk segment of the podcast discussing how well we thought Corrie dealt with the pandemic in its scripts and overall production before delving into the Geoff and Yasmeen story, which saw some major developments this week thanks to the introduction of one of Geoff's exes, as well as a heart attack for poor Yas and a rare Corrie dream sequence. On top of that, we've got Adam accusing Gary of killing Rick (was anyone else surprised by how quickly he was able to jump to that correct conclusion?), a tragic but incredibly creepy twist in the Daniel story, and some great Emma moments as part of Seb's story with Abi - an all-round top quality week, we thought!
Up next on the podcast it's The Kabin, where we talk about this week's Corrie special on classic villains - and explain why on earth we got a mention in the ending credits! - then we finish off with more of your fabulous feedback.

For this week's bonus episode, we're excited to be joined by Shelley King, who's at the centre of one of Corrie's most engrossing storylines at the moment. Magic, marriage and murder most fowl... Yasmeen's certainly been through a lot in the past year, and in this exclusive interview, we discover what it's been like bringing the issue of coercive control to our screens.
July 18th, 2020
For our latest podcast, we take a look back on the week of Corrie between the 13th and the 17th July (Episodes #10,087 - 10,089)..
This week sees Geoff get his hooks back into Yasmeen as he convinces her to go along with his plans to get her out of prison and back under his control. Meanwhile, Leanne and Nick find out about Toyah and Imran's fostering plans, Abi misses out on a chance to say goodbye to the twins before their trip to Australia, and Adam continues to turn on the charm with Laura - but is she the one playing him?
Next up, we head over to The Kabin, where we share our thoughts on this week's Coronation Street special about classic weddings. Then, after a bit of a bumper feedback section with some of you chipping in with your own thoughts on Corrie in the 70s, we head into spoiler territory with a double helping of Kabin Extra.

Our bonus podcast this week is a listener question segment, where we share our thoughts on two more topics sent in by you guys. Firstly, we've all spent longer in our homes than ever this year thanks to lockdown, but if six Corrie characters were to be quarantined together, who would we pick, and why? We go over a few ideas, wondering whether it'd be better to go for people who get on, who'd antagonise each other or simply who'd get some much needed time on the screen if they were in a six-hander! After that, we stretch our creative muscles and come up with ideas for a time travel episode of Corrie - if characters could take a trip to any period in history, who would we pick and where and when would they go to?
July 11th, 2020
On this episode of the podcast, we take a look at what went on in Weatherfield in the week of the 6th to the 10th July.
After a bit of a break, the coercive control story returns in full force this week, with Yasmeen gaining a firm supporter in Sally after talking with her during prison visiting time. With Tim refusing to betray his dad and Geoff getting an unexpected ally in the form of Tyrone, though, the Great Magnifico is far from defeated. Also this week, Leanne continues to lash out at those trying to support her, Roy unwittingly plays gooseberry again, and Michael's hopes of a romantic reconciliation with Grace are dashed.
In The Kabin, we share our thoughts on this week's Corrie special on ITV: Stories That Gripped The Nation, and we finish things off with a bit of listener feedback.
