Episode 4: God Hates Bleeps

We’ve been working our arses off. Ben had a couple of drinks, I went over 30 hours without sleep, and then we decided to head to the Interest.co.nz headquarters to meet with Bernard Hickey, where we discussed his killing of the free market god, corporate corruption of the American political system, capitalism gone awry, dirty old Fonterra, and many other interesting subjects. Then we speak with relationship and sex expert Rachel Goodchild about the whole Stephen Fry ‘women only go to bed with men because sex is the price they’re willing to pay for a relationship’ thing, then Morgan introduces some new words to her.  Discover that god hates figs, argue about marijuana legalisation, discover that caffeine is incredibly dangerous when taken in ridiculously large quantities, read about the discovery (and consumption) of a new monkey, hope for better on the mobile data front, laugh about data glory holes, rant at the folk that cock-up the trains, and much much more.

Special edition

We got a lot of great material while we were speaking with Bernard Hickey, far too much to fit into the regular show, so we’ll release a special extended interview edition of the show in a few days.

Bit rate

I’ve changed from using 160kbps encoded MP3s in the feed to 96kbps encoding, get in touch if this bothers you (or if you even notice).
