The ExtraJordanary Show CATCH-UP! (Eps. 30-34)

Busy with panto, Jordan’s been a bit lax when it comes to uploading her content. Bad Jordan.

But here’s episodes 30-through-34 featuring the a special guest visit from her panto’s producers Luke Coldham and Alice Fillary, top banter with returning musical guest Ren Stedman and LGBT history chat with Essex’s premier transgender police officer Gina Denham. Plenty of solo silliness in between.

Episode 32: Ren Stedman and Gina Denham

Episode 34 (WTF happened to 33?): Video-shames

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 28: Mo Omar

Theme: … Mecca?
Guest: Mo Omar (comedian)

Episode 28 kicks off the new year in style as a first time meeting turns into full-on Grade 8 bantomine! Comedian Mo Omar (winner of the 2017 Leicester Sq. New Comedian of the Year) regales us with tales of camel milk, mumble-rap, Mecca LOLs and overselling underlay.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 27: NYE Special! w/ Andrew Forsyth, Stephen Trumble & Daniel John

WHAT A WAY to close the year!

Episode Theme: 2017
Guests: Daniel John (comedian), Stephen Trumble (comedian), Andrew Forsyth (“comedian”)

Deftly controlled chaos takes over the studio for 90minutes of 2017-bashing fun. Triple the guests means triple the bants, broaching subjects from transgenderism in anime, Louis CK and the Weinstein scandal, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and “that Tinder poop girl that got stuck in a window”.

Jordan and the boys play “You’ve Been Trumbled” with the Trumble himself. Daniel John beseeches us to throw our tellies out the window (just like that Tinder poop girl that threw her poop out the window). Andrew Forsyth shows up late and complains about green milk and plastic nipples.

“This episode will make you feel feelings” –

Merry New Year and a big sexy thank you to all our listeners for weathering this 27-week teething period. 2018 will be better. We WILL make The ExtraJordanary Show GREAT (again?).

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 26: Xmas Eve Special!

Theme: Xmas?
Guest: Allysa Pentolfe (singer, muso, student, #1 Jordanite)

In a madcap tribute to Mary’s labour, Jordan counts down the greatest Christmas horror movies of all time, bursts into stream-of-consciousness and gives long-time listener *Allysa Pentolfe* a call, just to see what’s up.

A truly special episode and the penultimate show of 2017. Many thanks to our many listeners from Jordan and the whole team @ Phoenix 98FM | | @phoenixfm

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 25: Commitment (feat. Chris Hood)

Theme: Commitment
Guest: Chris Hood (fellow Phoenix presenter – The Orient Hour)

Jordan demonstrates extrasensory presenting skills as she juggles two shows at once; simultaneously recording episode 26 while episode 25 is going out live. Tips on sticking to NY resolutions, intermittent readings from Kerouac’s “On The Road” and an impromptu chat with fellow Phoenix presenter Chris Hood about prog-rock and murderous trains.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 23: The Green-eyed Monster

Episode Theme: Jealousy

A standout episode, diving into the murky and mercurial world of jealousy – especially insofar as it pertains to “Christmas”, “the movie Toy Story”, “Lady Gaga” and “Louis CK”. Sod your Mr. Frosties, bust out your Buzz Lightyears and join us for a darkly comic meander through the Emerald City of the mind.

New features include “Love Hearts” and “Love Hearts (Parma Violet edition)”.

Guest: Christopher Glasson
Theme: …?

One half of Hardcore Listing’s “Chris & Stu” — podcaster, health fanatic and reader of books Christopher Glasson joins Jordan in-studio for a bantastic episode filled with sneek-a-peekas and proper good radio stuff.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 21: The Spirit of Autumn!

autumn spirit

2 hours of textbook radio, *totally winged* on the premise that “the leaves are currently changing colour”.

Jordan extols the magic and majesty of the Autumnal season as only she knows how: high off her little titties on off-brand energy drink and with the help of her listeners, including and especially #1 Jordanite: Allysa Pentolfe.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 20: Carl Denham

Theme: “Impulsivity” (Impulsiveness)
Guest: Carl Denham – comedian, promoter, fantasy cartographer, bear (not a sexual delineation)

jordan and carl carl the bear

Carl; A Bear.

In what has been billed as the *bleepiest* episode so far, Jordan interviews the notorious “poultry pugilist” that is Carl Denham. The pair discuss Carl’s comic approach, his international affair with hip-hop and his time spent not-actually-hibernating as a massive woodland mammal.

Home truths coming spilling from every orifice in this enlightening and enlivening edition of The ExtraJordanary Show!
