One Footer in the Grave | Vote for me or the baby gets it


With one foot in the door of their retirement home for senior web designers, Paul Boag, Andy Clarke, Jon Hicks, and Marcus Lillington get together once a month to distract each other from everyday life and work.

The show’s funny and frivolous and the chaps have a genuinely unique chemistry and will entertain you if you work on the web and even if you don’t.

15: Vote for me or the baby gets it

It’s UK General Election time and the chaps have gathered to discuss it, but without mentioning politics. What would their top policies be if they were running for office? What do they think of novelty candidates like Count Binface? Plus, why are political party websites so terrible? Andy tells his story about being in the audience for BBC Question Time and the strange tale of designing for an intergalactic space warrior.
