Conversation Street Podcast Episode #529
#Conversation #Street #Podcast #Episode
On out latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 27th June and the 1st July 2022 (Episodes #10675- 10680).
This week, the online anti-Maria campaign gets knocked up a notch when Weatherfield’s esteemed councillor gets deepfaked into a porn video. Congrats, Coronation Street – you’ve actually made us feel a bit of sympathy for Maria for once! Honestly, Alf Roberts and Len Fairclough never had to put up with this kind of thing… Meanwhile, Friday’s episode saw a trio of rovers returning to the cobbles in the form of Nicky, Mimi and of course, the arachnidan activist himself, Spider Nugent! It’s been nearly 20 years since we last saw this fan favourite character on the Street, and thankfully, he doesn’t seem to have changed one bit! Also this week, Peter sees red after the case against Thorne is dropped, George and Todd plot to expose Frank for the bully he really is, and Aaron plans a Summer holiday.
Up next on the podcast, we take a quick visit to The Kabin, where we discuss a couple of special events that Coronation Street: The Tour are organising over the next few months, and we round off the show with more of your listener feedback.

We’ve reached the end of June, and that can only mean one thing for this week’s bonus podcast: our annual mid-year look at how Corrie has been shaping up in the first half of 2022. We remember the year getting off to a bit of a ropey start when Gemma, Chesney and Joseph were put front and centre, alongside the misadventures of Emma and Faye, but things have certainly changed for the better, at least in our eyes, with the Abi, Toyah and Imran story, even if there’s been one casualty there that we certainly wouldn’t have wanted… In this discussion, we take a look at which stories and scenes have really stuck with us, which have been a bit of a miss, and think about how we’d like certain stories to develop over the rest of the year.
