Essential Listening Gets Even More Essentialler.

One of my favourite listens is the podcast over at the Shire Network News.

The guys (non-gender-specific usage of this word, of course) are getting better and better with every show, and this latest one is the best yet.

Well, in my opinion, at least.

The regular cast of Tom Paine, Brian of London, Meryl Yourish and Damian Penny are now joined also by Evan Sayet.

Go listen. It'll take around half an hour out of your day, but it's more than worth it.

Meryl's piece on Sderot is incredibly powerful and she has a message that should be heard more than it is (ie barely at all).

Plus, you want to catch up on the back podcasts if you've not heard the Shire Network News before. There's a lot of good stuff coming up in the next few weeks, from the whispers I'm hearing.

Please report back with your review.

(lol if I have any readers left apart from MK and Grimmy and Kae! Hi, guys!)

Thanks, sfw. I've got some time this weekend booked in this weekend for catching up on my reading, so will add listening to the list.

Well if that isn't a cry for attention, I don't know what is. :-) Don't worry Nilk, you are a regular on my blog surfing. I have even stuck a link up.

Now I am the one who should be complaining that nobody visits anymore.

Cheers,

Todd from http://rumcorps.net/rebellion/

Dear Nilk:

Thanks for the email and the link to your swingin' and very worthwhile blog. I love Network Shire News pods. I also dig all the things that SFW mentions, plus the religion report & I used to listen for years to LNL, not so much now.

I forgot they had Evan Sayet now.

Counterpoint was quite a fresh surprise to find on Aunty. A show not by numbers!

Skeptoid/Skeptic etc is great for Logical Fallacy, Cognitive Bias.

An odd fish, old Hanoi Jane. It's as if she was wacked with a cricket bat at some point.

Ah, my son's school is a very nice school and er, rather PC, to put it mildly. It WILL be an interesting year...

You have so many interesting pieces,I'll have to pull up a chair and a Martini!

All the best from Colonel Neville.
