** Karl finally beating Ricky on the lateral thinking puzzle is one of the most satisfying moments in the history of radio.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: While it is quite common for Karl to indeed be talking shit, some viewers point out occasions where Karl does have a good argument or idea in mind, but the issue is that he's usually shut down by Ricky and Steve before he can get around to properly articulate them.

*** Ricky also asks Karl what would happen if someone died while undergoing a rectal examination. Ricky's character in ''Ghost Town'' gains the ability to see ghosts after a NearDeathExperience during a colonoscopy.

** When Karl told Ricky about his idea of putting a mirror on the moon, Ricky asked how they'd get it on the right side. A few episodes later, listeners emailed and pointed out that the same side of the moon always faces Earth.

** Ricky repeatedly talks about how fat he's getting and sounds perfectly satisfied with this across a number of the podcasts, displaying a distinct awareness of it and joking about arriving to recordings in tracksuit bottoms and later ''pyjamas''. He distinctly sounds like he's not interested in changing at all. Cut to several years later, and he'd lost a distinct amount of weight by the time he did his 'Science' stand-up show.

* HarsherInHindsight: In the 'Guide to Society' Karl, Ricky and Steve discuss the varying forms of government and the ways in which the state should care for it's people; At one point, Ricky jokingly declares that he likes being fat and a complete pig, and the government can't really do anything about that. This discussion was several years before the British problem with obesity became so severe in 2013 and 2014 that several local councils began to send notifications and suggestions to people's mobile phones encouraging them to lose weight over the summer, alongside a handful of discussions over the idea of subjecting 'richer' foods to taxes that healthier foods would not receive.

* UnfortunateImplications: A lot of the time, Karl doesn't necessarily come across as 'stupid' or 'an idiot', as Ricky and Steve are quick to dub him, and is actually just ill informed. Rather than correct him, a lot of the time they just chastise him to the point it almost feels like bullying, on a number of occasions.
