If you'd like to subscribe to the podcast, by far the easiest way to get it, click here: This week we featured:

  • Meskel Square blogger Andrew Heavens currently based in Khartoum told us what was happening in Darfur

  • Erik of Afrigadget spoke to us about their blogging the continent's home-brewed technological innovation

  • Dan Hardie reacted to the Prime Minister's announcement about Iraqi Employees

  • A little bit of Bill Lamin talking about the more recent additions to his blog of WWI letters from his grandfather (thanks to R4 for the audio)

  • The Britblog Roundup hosted over at Westminster Wisdom. Natalie from Philobiblon did the interview. Nominate posts for next week round-up via Britblog [at] gmail [dot] com

  • Gizmodo loved the launch of this rocket powered X-wing and so did we. (link goes to video of the launch)

  • Nodehill Middle School may be the most bloggy school in the UK. We ran a terrific podcast by one of their young pupils. Rhod and I are already preparing to make way for the new generation. Good work Ashley & Mr Dale!

  • Lastly we spoke to Steve of Coudal Partners who, for some reason we struggle to fathom, listened to Abba's Dancing Queen non-stop on a 4 hour drive and made a film of the experience (You can watch the full video here). He survived but doctors disagree over the prognosis

Thanks to The Gaffer of the EPL Talk Podcast for the intro. Do keep sending them in. Particularly keen to get one or two from beyond the UK/US.

Please do subscribe to the podcast, many of your are listening, but mostly via the blog - having it appear on your mp3 player in time for the morning commute is surely the better option.
