Episode 0: Elephant in the Room

Welcome to the show. Ben Gracewood talks a little about his decision to leave his role as TVNZ’s tech & gadget commentator on Breakfast following Paul Henry’s racist remarks about Governor General Anand Satyanand. Peter Jackson isn’t getting along with Actors Equity. A house burns down because the owner didn’t pay his local firefighting fee. Discussing Android tablets devolves into a conversation about macerated poo. Tourist in Spain drives into a lake and drowns, because his GPS told him to. A young Italian boy has had an artificial heart fitted (doctors reckon it’ll give him 15 or 20 years of life, I reckon he’s got more like 6 to 12 months). NASA are making thousands of people redundant as they shift into the next phase of operations (apparently a phase that doesn’t involve much actual space travel). Keanu Reeves approves of the Sad Keanu meme. The newly set lawnmower land speed world record. And Morgan tries to make everything about himself.

We’re still trying to find our legs with the new show, let us know what you think.

    Good work, though it restarted after it finished, perhaps a tape loop.
