    Hmm.. I had planned to get up on at 5amm Thursday morning (the equivalent time here in New Zealand time zone as your 4pm live time) to participate in the chat room But Bugger I slept through.. Humpf

    I spent Xmas and New Year at work (my turn to be on shift over the holiday). I drew short straw and ended up with the graveyard shift (midnight to 8am) so turned on your podcasts and listed to Sonic Talk135 through to the most recent one. I had listened to a few previously especially the more recent ones but redid them all in order.

    Great fun. Love the humour (especially Rich's giggle - at least I think it is his) also love the banter.. sometimes pointless and way off subject and sometimes really.

    Love the show. Really helped my while away the boring graveyards over the Xmas and New Year great.
