One Footer in the Grave, all episodes


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.

9: Tebbit was a monster

After a fabulous summer of fun, the four fellas are back with an extra-long episode. Even though it’s only October, they talk about Christmas and Andy’s plan to escape to Costa Rica. The chaps discuss which celebrity we’d elect to parliament and which cabinet position we’d want most. Then, they talk about whether ghosts exist or Andy was just drunk. (This episode was recorded before Liz Catastussrophe was beaten by a lettuce.)

8: Norfolk an’ chance

In this new episode, Andy bought a watch which isn’t as expensive as the divorce he narrowly avoided after. Jon sadly missed his bird nerd holiday but bought himself a camera. Paul’s wife crushed his expensive headphones so he bought new ones. The chaps then talk about the things they buy which give them joy and what they’d do if or when they retire.

7: Soggy looking swamp

In this new episode, Andy, Jon, Paul, and Marcus discuss the first stage of Paul’s latest motorhome and midlife crisis. They talk about what they like to do when they’re not working and wrap things up by suggesting what Andy should do for his hobby.
