Episode 1: Naked in Latin and Clearasil Hair Dye
In the first-ever episode of the Anecdotally podcast, Bethan says goodbye to private school and hello to talking about excrement. Greer discusses why she was once semi-naked during a Latin lesson and we finally get to the bottom of how on earth Bethan managed to dye the front of her hair with Clearasil as a teenager.
In the first-ever episode of the Anecdotally Podcast, Greer and Bethan reminisce about when they first met. Was it friendship at first sight? Probably not as neither of them can remember exactly when it was. However, if Bethan’s account of Year 7 is anything to go by, it would most likely be a resounding no.
After having to transition from Private School to Grammar School (the shame), Bethan said Goodbye to the East Kent elite and Hello to talking about poo. This later led to her being pulled to one side by a teacher over her conversation topics. Thankfully for our listeners, this stern talking to didn’t fix the problem and we now both have a healthy bank of embarrassing stories to tell 10 years later in a public podcast.
While Bethan was attempting to socialise, Greer was trying to cram in as many GCSE and A-Level subjects into a week as possible and binge-eat Morrison’s cheesecakes behind a copy of the Aeneid during class. No wonder we’re still friends.
Join us for a traumatic look back at our school years in Episode 1 of Anecdotally and find out why Greer was once semi-naked during a Latin lesson (no, it wasn’t due to the cheesecake) and if you thought poo-talk was bad, we’ll finally get to the bottom of how Bethan managed to dye the front of her hair with Clearasil.

It's the year 2009 and at a Grammar School in Dover, Greer and Bethan probably aren't listening to their Latin teacher and instead eating a whole cheesecake behind a book in a lesson. Fast forward a decade later, Bethan is procrastinating from her PhD and Greer is trying to stop social media making her depressed so they decided to make a podcast together.
