The Folk Buddies are emotionally drained because "Walk the Line" is such a moving film and also whisky. So they carry on talking about Johnny Cash's songs. Andrew like the one about great military defeats; Clarrie likes the one about sweet shops; but oddly enough they both like the one about hangovers.

There's an intermission during the Folkbuddies Folk Film Festival during which ice cream and popcorn can be purchased. Andrew reviews some gigs, and reveals his folkiest moment of the year so far.

It is still 2015. Andrew and Clarrie are still listening to last year's stack of CDs. They unexpectedly agree about Maz O'Connor, and predictably agree about Martin and Eliza Carthy, Bellowhead, and O'Hooley and Tidow. They say they aren't going to have the same argument about Luke Jackson they did last time, and then do. Andrew says "Hang on..." too often. GUARANTEED PENGUIN FREE.

In an orgy of topicality the folkbuddies turn their musical eye north of Hadrian's wall, to Scotland! Home of Dick Gaughan, Karine Polwart and even some artists whose names we can pronounce. Listeners are warned that Andrew eats Haribo throughout.

As autumn settles upon the UK like a wet rag, let this twenty six minute bucket of podcast offcuts be the kindling that lights the fire of laughter in your hearts or something I don't know.

The epic conclusion of the Folk Battles saga. Families torn apart, vows that can never be taken back, Eurovision. That sort of thing.

In the second instalment of our Folk Battle, things take a more serious turn as we discuss the role of archaic language in creating emotional distance. Trigger warning for discussion of sexual assault.

A long time ago, on a dining room table far away, the folk buddies prepared for each other a playlist of 'their' folk music. They swapped, and then they listened, and then they talked and talked and TALKED.
