It’s Grand Final Weekend and everyone has footy fever, Australian Politics and deadly creatures of Australia.
The guys get together again for a late episode this week, talking about the events of the week including the big Australian Sporting weekend for the AFL and NRL grand final’s. Ben & Kris talk about their Grand Final days. Kris brings up the Alan Jones controversy with his recent comments about the Australian Prime Minster Julia Gillard. Is Julia Gillard viewed negatively because of her looks and her nasally accent? Ben reveals some of his Political beliefs about taxation and wealth distribution and how Australia fits into the world scheme.
Jack and his farm update us on some of his adventures on the farm. Jack deals with his dorpa sheep, that shed their fur, which turn out to be half goat. Jack learns how to tackle a goat to the ground and look at its feet for rot. Kris wonders if this technique could be used elsewhere. Ben reminisces on an old class mate who wanted to be a farmer.
A listener from Toronto emails in to firstname.lastname@example.org and asks if we are scared of any foreign animals and we talk about local Australian wild life as well as animals we are scared of. Snakes, Platypuses, Hippopotamuses and Cougars.
Jack reports on an unusual crime in Canada where criminals steal around 32 million dollars worth of Maple Syrup. And by report i mean he reads an article out word for word. Copyright lawyers look out.
