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.

This is a crisis. A large crisis. In fact, if you got a moment, it's a twelve-story crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpeting throughout, 24-hour portage, and an enormous sign on the roof, saying 'This Is a Large Crisis'. A large crisis requires a large plan. Get me two pencils and a pair of underpants

This is a crisis. A large crisis. In fact, if you got a moment, it's a twelve-story crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpeting throughout, 24-hour portage, and an enormous sign on the roof, saying 'This Is a Large Crisis'.

Don’t be fooled by the images there is no crisis, I just had to get the images in there to solve one of the random words that Alec got asked to add. It was unfortunately too late for the recording but there was no way ‘Wibble!’ was going to be missed out.

As you may have already guessed, as well as the return of Gow to help round out the podcast, this week also saw a return Alec-Ross Bower. He joins us for the later part of the episode and has some very interesting things to say.

But the good thing about that image is that I also don’t need to do as much padding  🙂 So without further time-wasting, here is this episode
