stranded on a desert island snack based podcast

Top 3 crisps



What the hell is this all about then?

In 2004 a Ryanair plane carrying some of Britain’s brightest acting talents and Sam Pamphilon and Tom McCall crashed somewhere in the Caribbean Sea near Puerto Rico. Luckily most of the survivors were picked up by a Japanese herring trawler but Tom and Sam where never found. 

Washed up. Abandoned. Stranded…

And now the unlikely pair find themselves on a desert Island surrounded by nothing but sea and with only their conversation to keep them from going insane - that and a couple of sex dolls made from coconuts.

There are many burning questions that face humanity. Why are we here? Are we alone? What does it all mean? But none more pertinent than "What's your favourite crisp?". In fact "What are your 3 favourite crisps?" 

Desert Island Crisps is the make believe, conversational radio show that Tom and Sam use to stop them from going completely nuts and eating each other.

In each episode of the podcast Tom and Sam will be joined on the island by a different guest from the world of entertainment. The latest castaway must choose their forever crisps. Expect laughs, tears and crisps - A seagull called Steven and a seal called Ffreshness. 


"I'm a Maize kinda guy.
I'll take a Monster
Munch over a Kettle Chip any day of the week.
And yes a Maize based snack
is a crisp you blinkered
potato purist!!"

“When I first licked the dust from the bottom of a bag of Tangy Discos in 1994 I knew there and then I’d have to host a crisp based podcast when I was 38 and in between jobs”
