Battenberg

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.
