Alas our revels now are ended (so we'll have to start on the Rolos) but you can listen to the 7-day what-still-no-podcast archive here. Tonight's show is a little different. It's audience week on Five Live so we thought we'd take as our top 3 stories subjects voted for by users of Social News site Digg. So with that in mind here's the run-down:

  • A chat to Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht of Diggnation a podcast inspired by Digg

  • Kevin and Alex's story pick: the sound that's supposed to keep you awake as much as a cup of coffee hmm

  • My pick from Digg (briefly top of the Offbeat News Section), The ten most annoying alarm clocks. Big thanks to Professor Russell Foster who told us that waking up suddenly was very bad for the health (take note employers)

  • Top of Diggs politics section a story debunking an anti-Barack Obama smear campaign. That and the Hilary webchat discussed with Amanda Terkel of Think Progress

  • The Ivory Coast music craze Drogbacite (inspired by a Drogba's football skills) explained by Modal Minority

  • A simulcast on Blogtalkradio with Alan Levy and special guest Mick Fealty of Slugger O'Toole

  • Jeff Jarvis spoke about the Davos Conversation

  • And lastly we featured an interview with Mia Rose the young British artist who is currently the most subscribed singer on YouTube. UPDATE: I have altered this post as I've seen it referenced in ways I'm very uncomfortable with. For the record I think she's a really talented performer.
