Episode 4

If you don’t have iTunes or you just can’t be bothered to download it, you can listen to this episode, here.

Firstly, apologies for the slight technical difficulties with speech and jingles. We promise that it won’t happen again!

The first news story of this week is about a chicken born without an egg. We thought this story was slightly misleading as THERE WAS AN EGG, THEY JUST DIDN’T SHOW IT. Anyway, you can read the full news story here.

The next story is about an Australian woman who suffered facial and psychological injuries from a very special “work trip”. Not only did she manage to get some action when she was away for her job, but she managed to get payed for it too. Seems to bring a whole new meaning to the term “government hooker”. Full story here.

Camilla the rubber chicken

Final news story this week is about Camilla, the rubber chicken who was sent into space. Not only was she doing important work up there, but she was also named NASA’s official mascot! We know you may have heard of this one before, but we couldn’t just skim over it. Read the article here.

We’ve got some great magazine articles this week*, but our favourite section was logging onto their website. The forums included some angry ranting about past stories and other fantastic posts. If you’d like to browse through them for yourself, you can go here.

If you enjoyed the discussion on pasty tax as much as we did, you may be happy to discover that you can read page upon page on this subject if you go here.

And that’s about it for this week, but we close with the news that if you’d like to send in a jingle to be played on the show, email it to pianomanphil @ hotmail.co.uk or leave it as a video response to this video. We can’t wait to hear what you come up with!

*including one about phobias. Phil mentioned a certain fear, actually called “Anatidaephobia” which is perhaps the greatest fear ever conceived.
