Episode #17: The Full Fat Version (aka Paddy Dun Goofed)

Ahh the classic baking soda volcano experiment, can lead to some great pranks if you know how

Well that just goes to prove a point I guess, even after 17 weeks of recording and uploading this podcast is still possible to make some Grade-A beginners mistakes.

With so much going on at the minute I didn’t think to check the MP3 after it was output, unfortunately this time without any reason to do so (beyond being an Adobe product) it only output the first 30 minutes of the recording.

So basically the whole thing was 30 minutes of us bitching about Sony!

However that’s now sorted and here instead is the Full Fat, Complete version of Episode #17 of the Drinky Talky Thing

This has been a bad week for anyone who owns a PS3 or has ever had a Sony Online account – so bad that for the first time this year a whole segment of the show was dedicated to the news about it.

However there is plenty of other news out there and we once again have recorded our thoughts on some of the highlights.

One thing I haven’t said a while, is that we are always interested in your opinions on the show. We may be 17 weeks in but were still looking to improve and change things up where needed.
