Australia’s new PM Lord Wentworth has some tips for interpersonal success. Nicholas Fryer has some tips for frustrated parents. And there’s nothing — absolutely nothing — about last weekend’s football finals, or this weekend’s motor racing.
In this podcast, there’s talk of resilience, hallucinating goldfish, electric eels, economics, and squid jism.
Thank you, Media Freedom Citizenry!
This is the fifth of several episodes produced as part of The 9pm Urgent Hardware Refresh, a crowdfunding campaign to replace a dying computer, and upgrade my audio recording kit. That campaign proved remarkably successful, for which I am extremely grateful. My thanks go to so many people, but for this episode…
The CASUAL VERBALLINGS were sponsored by B-GRADE EVANGELISTS FOR MEDIA FREEDOM Greg Randolph, and Hamish Taylor. The ONE OF THREE WORDS were sponsored by FOOT SOLDIERS FOR MEDIA FREEDOM Deejbah, Mark Pesce, and someone whose name cannot be found. My sincere thanks also go to the unnamed MEDIA FREEDOM CITIZENS who contributed.
Thanks also to Stuart Young for another generous one-off contribution.
