Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.

Joining Tim this time is musician, comedian and writer Mitch Benn, who's hoping for another viral hit with his recollections of chocolate bar 54321, the Logan's Run television series, Matchbox Zoomy Balloonies, King Swamp, Action Man spinoff figures Atomic Man and Bullet Man, and the inexplicable craze for fifties nostalgia in the seventies. Along the way we'll be finding out where REM didn't get their name from but secretly did, celebrating the Official Mike Lindup From Level 42 Toothbrush, and wondering whether it's actually physically and legally possible to prevent Paul McCartney from dressing up as a Teddy Boy.
