Episode 3: Yippee Ki-yay, Mr Power!

We talk to Thomas Scovell about Downtothewire.co.nz, and Rick Shera about Simon Power’s ill-considered review of laws around “new media”. Then we move on to phishing, climate change denial, power savings, a dick on a back, reality TV, Macbooks Air, Italian miniskirts, the Walkman, War and Peace, and big softies.

Lower bit-rate version of the show

The main feed each week currently contains a 160kbps MP3, we chose this to maximise the quality of our recordings, however we’re considering moving to serving up 96kbps files in the feed instead, as they tends to be rather a lot smaller, so much quicker for people to download. Here is a 96kbps version of this week’s recording: Episode 3 – Yippee Ki-yay, Mr Power! (96 kbps, MP3), to download this file, right-click the link and select save.

We’re still soliciting feedback on whether people are happy to see this happen, or even if you don’t care one way or the other.

  • I’ve never heard of a Big Soft, but I’ve heard “sémillon” used for the same concept because of the pronunciation which is pretty close to “semi-on”, which is clearly about half of a hard-on.

    Next time someone offers you a nice drop of sémillon, I’d suggest you decline and ask for a penis grease instead.

    This is why I drink red wine.
