Battenburg are Richard Sara and Owen Whitehouse.

The show derives it's name from the 4 squares that make up a slice of Battenberg. A square is a topic of conversation and Richard and Owen each bring 2 squares - 'blind baked' which means that neither knows what the others square is prior to the show.

The show is a one hour conversation interspersed with music which introduces the topics. On today's show:

'Seven Seas' X1 versus Lord Harewood's X1', 'Masters of War', 'Silly Games', 'Jargon'.

Square one and The Brothers return to the 'Perfect Day' when The Seven Seas drank Sangria in Lord Harewoods Park.

Owen and Bob Dylan ask, "Who are the 'Masters of War'?" Who makes money from War? Who is aiding war and profiting from suffering?

Richard has been playing 'Silly Games' and has a novel way of helping charity. Can you get paid for playing online games?

The show is brought to a close with a game of jargon-based bingo ballcocks.

Introductory Square music :

Lou Reed - Perfect Day
BoB Dylan - Masters of War
The Who - Pinball Wizard
Extreme - More Than WordsListen Live
