Hello all!
The podcast up and ready for a good listening to at your leisure.

If we mentioned a place that you would like to visit online, then you can find all the links right here:

The world has been watching as the situation in Iran became grave following the elections. The amount of information being passed around online is practically at critical mass on video sites, Twitter and Facebook, not to mention the blogs and news websites world-wide.
Reporters have been arrested and expelled this week and so many people are still adding their voices online where they can. Two editors who work with user generated content from and related to Iran join the conversation this week on the show to talk about safety, politics and verification of material.

MNot so much what's that sound but where's that sound? Michela Magas is working to create a system that matches music and sounds around the world. Amazing visualisations show that the strangest things in the oddest places can sound very similar indeed. Schubert sounds like Shakespeare?
