Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their
pasts are comedian and actor SUKH OJLA (Victoria and Abdul, Black Mirror, Hospital People, EastEnders) and fellow comedian and actor MAREK LARWOOD (We Are Klang, Extras, Hyperdrive, Impractical Jokers, Celebability). We explore the pros and cons of conjuring
your love life, the scariest waxworks no longer in the UK, the stress of receiving parcels and the best fantasies to entertain on a long train journey. Along the way we consider lonely hearts, Tarantino’s next film and the completely incomprehensible sound
of Widecombe Fair. Wish you were here?

At the time of recording, the most recent postcard that Marek had sent: a super multiview Isle of Wight card, a souvenir of his epic walk around the island.
Cromer, Sheringham & The Runtons, 1977. “It’s a very beautiful place small & select & smells of wealth.”
Constantine Bay at Padstow, Cornwall, 1972. “Today we are going to look at where King Arthur was or something.”
Rodin’s The Kiss, on a postcard that usually lives on Sukh’s vision board.
Aretha Franklin rendered in wax for Madame Tussauds’ short-lived spin-off, Rock Circus. Marek’s card was given to him by The Inbetweeners star, Simon Bird, inside a novel about Nazi assassinations.
Children’s Beach, Weymouth, 1970. “I’m doing nothing else but sort out big dogs and dustmen.”
Walton-on-the-Naze. “There aren’t any Rice Krispies but a nice lot of sand.”
A promotional postcard, pressed into Sukh’s hand by an eager PR person, showing Horseshoe Viaduct, in Tyndrum.
Marek’s Parcelforce card – arguably these ‘we missed you’ postcards are the terrifying future of postcards.
Sandown, Isle of Wight. “Nothing changes – not even the paintwork, or the colour of Mr Finney’s chest.”
A musical postcard: The Heart of Dartmoor.
