You’d think two bestselling crime writers would just talk about crime, right? Not these ones. Sit back and enjoy fun, frolics and laughs. After all, what’s more lighthearted than murder?

Sounding like Les Dawson

Adrian Hobart once again joins Adam in the absence of Bob for this week's podcast, in which the pair compare colds. We hear that Adrian is just getting over his, but unfortunately for Adam, it looks like the worst is yet to come. 
When our hosts finally start talking about crime fiction stuff, Adam reveals how Richard Osman's second novel did sales-wise (I wont do a spoiler, but I think you can probably guess it wasn't bad news), and we hear that despite all Osman's success, he still gets upset by bad reviews. Adrian tells us about a possible paper shortage in the book-printing world, while Adam takes a look at an Entertainment Daily article previewing 'the next big crime drama on BBC One'.
Also in the podcast, Adam and Adrian have a coughing contest, while the latter reveals he effing loves submarines.
