Hot Not What?
By Jen and Dan
Would you take the high ground, and who are you trying to please, anyway? Our hosts will battle it out to try to convince each other, and you, that their opinions are correct. They may even be joined by a guest or two.
They are the founding editors of Firewords literary magazine so let's hope they don't fall out and the next publication can go ahead unscathed...

S1 Ep10: Baking, Questions and Little White Lies
How can you criticise baking while baking? You're not actually going to podcast about questions, are you? If you tell us that last question didn't irritate you, it's almost certainly a little white lie.
S1 Ep09: Magpies, Commentary and Swearing
What's there to love about Magpies when they have their beady eyes on you? What is there to hate about sporting commentary? (Ok, so the list on this one is endless.) And what is the role of swearing in modern day conversation? We use lots of it in this episode to illustrate the point, so be warned.
S1 Ep08: Soothsaying, Hoggers and Hangovers
How much soothsaying can a Magic 8 Ball accomplish and what can we do to get our own back on all those seat hoggers in public places? Afterwards, there's so much chat about hangovers that you'll need a drink!
S1 Ep07: Tooth Timer, #News, Shit Break
What is so special about a certain tooth timer that it gets on the hot list; how can the cultural awareness that comes with news ever be negative; and shit break ???
S1 Ep06: Garlic, Sorry, Collabs
For all those who have forgotten to brush their teeth before a first date, don't worry! Garlic makes this week's hot list.
Join Dan and Jen to find out why.
S1 Ep05: Fraze, Loud, Rude
... what do these words mean in the context of HotNotWhat? And will you agree?
S1 Ep04: Perfume, Sense and Autos
Perfume ads, to be specific, and we promise this episode is more exciting than it sounds - with a big dollop of waffle.
S1 Ep03: Swans, Teeth and Assertiveness
Swans good, teeth bad? Surely it should be the other way round. Dan and Jen fight it out and you decide.
S1 Ep02: Space, Nyaffs, Aliens
Space is good, Nyaffs are bad, Aliens are a bit of both. Nobody can argue with that, right?
This podcast was first published in 2018.
S1 Ep01: Snow, Facebook, Chewing
How can snow be hot? How can the negatives of Facebook be condensed into one episode? Is it accessible to show one's appreciation by masticating loudly?
First recorded in 2018, Episode One of the Hot Not What kicks off the discussion.
Season One Trailer - What what what
Dan and Jen pop in to tell you what Hot Not What? is all about - although it should be pretty obvious from the name, right?
