Tell Us A Joke

The Dumbed Down Life podcast is recored by Doug, Darren and Lance. Over the years we've had guest presenters too and some contributions from friends and family.

Bobbi, Doug's wife was a special guest in show 66.

Ben recorded a show with Lance last year.

"I hear pod people" which is used at the start of some of our shows is a recording of Darren's daughter.

Ken from Derby has contributed a few times.

What we're looking for now is some recordings of you telling a joke, just something short and corny to fill a gap between two songs. MP3 or WAV file formats are fine.

Email your joke to and we'll email you back to let you know which of our shows your joke is in.

Also, if you have a podcast, blog or web site that you would like to promote we'd love to hear from you. Record something simple like "Hi this is Fred from and you're listening to the dumbed down life" or if you have a full promo track for your podcast we'd love to hear it!

Dumbed Down Little Big Life

My brother has made the iconic DDL logo in the Sony Playstation 3 game "Little Big Planet". Here's a video of what he's started. Aparently you can change all sort of aspects of the object which will allow him to create a mini level. This is a sort of "behind the scenes" video but I was so impressed that I have to share! He even made the little I.T sack boy.

Thanks Bro' this is really cool.

Here's the first section from DDL65 on web cam. Frame rate is not great but gives you an idea of what we look like.
Warning, sweary language from the very start.

The frustrations with e-bay and have you named your car?
Sound quality for Darren is not the greatest this week which is probably a good thing since he seems to have a bit of an attack of tourettes syndrome.
