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

Carl: the cartographer —
Theme: The History Of Hallowe’en (Samhain)
In a distinct change of pace, Jordan flies solo for an entire episode. Undistracted by another human, Jordan riffs on sexy vampires, oral hygiene the poison of Christian theology… all while remembering to do the weather, traffic and adverts (as she describes) “like a proper radio person”. All in all, a textbook episode that’s well worth an ear-gander. Big love to #1 Jordanite Allysa Pentolfe and everybody listening live throughout.

New Comedian of The Year Quarter Finals – NOV 5TH @ The Museum of Comedy
Guest: Tom Mayhew (Comedian, not just a sad man)
Joining Jordan for a hilarious pre-record, comedian Tom Mayhew talks about his lifelong love affair with comedy, Pokémon and The Simpsons. The odd couple discuss Tom’s Edinburgh special “Fragile Fragments”, incl. it’s upcoming commitment to DVD – the filming of which Jordan herself would be guesting at a few hours after this episode went out. The pair also improvise a number of fake adverts to appease imaginary sponsors.
Pictured is Tom holding an award that Jordan won the following morning, while Jordan sips Victorian Lemonade from it’s shiny goblet.

ABOUT THE EPISODE
True blue rock n’n roll radio. THIS is what The ExtraJordanary Show should have been from Episode 1. Mildly scandalous but ultimately from the heart (and cervix). Aussie comic Andrew Forsyth (Andrea Foreskin) brings his own brand of low-aspirational comedy to the Phoenix FM studio as the two discuss Food, Faith and what happens when you fancy someone… doesn’t sound as funny written down but TRUST us… it’s a belter.

Guests: Spring Day (Comedian), Tom Mayhew (Comedian), Elliot Simpson (Comedian), Rob Saunders (Comedian)
Cooped up in the studio, pre-recording an otherwise guestless show, Jordan phones 4 of her favourite touring comedians, all of whom are currently showing at Edinburgh Fringe. We here from the incorrigible Spring Day, the undernourished Tom Mayhew, the staggeringly asexual Elliot Simpson and *Panic Award Comedian Of The Year* x5 Rob Saunders.
… after that, things go off the rails because Jordan gets a bit tired and weird. Vive la Fringe!
Theme: “The Theatre”
Guests: Luke Coldham (Actor, Writer, Producer, Director), Alice Fillary (Actor)
Luke Coldham joins Jordan in studio, with Alice Fillary in tow, to discuss ALL THINGS THEATRE, DARLING! We dive into the mind of one of theatre-land’s most prolific, diligent and eloquent up-and-comers. Luke is a major driving force behind theatre in Thurrock and Essex and his ongoing projects grace the county’s theatres year round. Also, he does loads of impressions n’that.

Bang in the middle of her busiest season, Jordan has finally gotten around to uploading the last 3 episodes of her flagship show. Listening figures would suggest that, despite the slew of *celebrity* guests, you’d rather hear from Jordan’s closest friends and immediate family. The funniest, most adorable and easily the shoddiest episodes so far!
Episode 8.5: Edd Coates (singer, songwriter – former keyboardist of “The Corridors”)
(with commentary by Dalton Gray)
Episode 9: Dalton Gray (author, Viking, Jordan’s Brother)
Episode 10: Jordan’s Fiance Heli (driver, lover, Czech person)
Episode Theme: Free Will
Guests: Cara Compass (Indie Author), Eden Tredwell (Muso, Model)
Bucket lists, Facebook culling and ladies with 6 packs – three women question their free will as chaos descends on the Phoenix FM studio. Shots fired, musical history re-rewritten and the new Dr Who is announced amidst the mayhem.
