Episodes vary from talking about Marcel the Monkey from Friends to The Planet of the Apes musical in The Simpsons – and even as far as Bollo from The Mighty Boosh. Every episode functions as a funny chat-turned-report about these peculiar primates, whether they are real or not.
What makes the episodes worthwhile is Matt’s easy to like, calm personality that invites comedy from his guests. I like the homely feel of the chat which is nice to listen to while doing mundane chores. In fact, I’m listening to the George of the Jungle episode as I type.
