Episode 10: New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina
<p>We metaphorically cross the pond in this episode to investigate Hurricane Katrina, its effects on New Orleans and the aftermath. This leads us into the sensitive subjects of race, politics and equality.</p> <p>While doing this of course we still manage to take a quick interlude, talk about banana shaped vegetable scrubbing brushes being used for the wrong thing and internet fu. All while drinking the ever-present beer of indeterminate strength.</p> <p>Listen out for some more easter eggs after the end music!</p> <p>This episode was brought to you by the numbers 4, 7 and The Last Tuesday Project podcast available wherever you find podcasts and their website <a href="http://www.lasttuesdayproject.com">www.lasttuesdayproject.com</a></p>

Episode 8: Digital Switchover
<p>This time David and Russell look back at the UK’s switch to digital TV and radio while drinking some actual real beer. Somehow noodle-like worms, French Canada, monkeys and good old John Logie Baird come into it.</p> <p> </p>

Episode 7: The Return of Hong Kong
<p>In this episode, somewhere amongst the chat about Godzilla, echidnas, reindeer slippers and wooly mammoths we manage to talk about the 1997 return of Hong Kong to China.</p> <p>We also revisit and update some of our old episodes - hence the mammoth.</p> <p>There was no beer for this one, just some massive cups of tea, and listen out for David’s wonderful singing!</p> <p> </p>

Episode 6: The Raoul Moat Manhunt
<p><strong><span style="font-size:14pt;">We’re back!</span></strong></p> <p>With another listener suggested episode. This time David and Russell discus the man hunt and subsequent stand-off, for Raoul Moat in the north east of England. We then move on to its ramifications for the media and society. Somehow we also manage to include roosters, camel’s noses, hippo’s testicles and of course no Old News episode would be complete without some “beer of indeterminate strength.”</p> <p>Listen out for an Easter egg after the music as well!</p>

Episode 5: Chernobyl
<p>For the first time we have a listener suggested subject - the Chernobyl nuclear accident.</p> <p>Once again, Russell reveals he is skipping the country while David has, surprisingly, not had any DIY related problems. Welsh sheep, the pronunciation of “Bath” and cheesy chains all make unexpected appearances.</p> <p>We also give a shout out to our friends at The Last Tuesday Project podcast. Give them a listen at <a href="http://www.lasttuesdayproject.com">www.lasttuesdayproject.com</a></p> <p> </p> <p>NOTE: Russell mentions that he can’t remember what SCRAM stands for. It could stand for “Safety Control Rods Activation Mechansim”, “Safety Control Rods Actuator Mechanism”, or the slightly strange “Safety Control Rod Axe Man”.</p>
