@EndRoadwork It’s worth a visit. The tour is detailed, and conducted by Nike veterans. Old blokes now, of course.

@EndRoadwork Quite possibly. It’s the only Nike launch facility that’s been restored.

@Rashas_Mo @SenatorLudlam Exactly that. The licensing regime for live streams and podcasts is a pain in the arse. But I hope to sort that.

via TweetDeck in reply to Rashas_Mo

@Rashas_Mo @SenatorLudlam That would be excellent, but there are licensing issues.

@HappySinger @dfpiii It’s the “two blokes talking shite” genre, but it has a structure and they’re smart.

via TweetDeck in reply to HappySinger

@SnarkyPlatypus Mind you, in episode three, @dfpiii predicts that the next James Bond will be Harry Styles. So there’s that.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@SnarkyPlatypus @dfpiii That’s not the same thing, even though another Scot was involved.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Not so much a voice as an annoying whine.

You know, @dfpiii, I could grow to like a podcast that speaks the truth about Lulu.

I should probably just do what I did last time, which was to copy-and-paste all my tweets into a single document and riff off them.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I’ll definitely do the podcast before the end of March. But the world is moving so fast I’m finding it hard to settle on a theme.

I really should do an episode of “The 9pm Edict” podcast soon. That last one was more than six weeks ago.
