00:00 A quick glimpse at "the second album of the century".
02:07 Aaaaaaaaand they're off. There's a quick update on whether Paul has seen Star Trek or not yet, and how Roger Ebert manages to occasionally surprise.
13:39 Drinks update: The Boys talk about why they're slurring and laughing at their own fingers. Do you drinkalongaPaulAndSpike? What do you drink? Email the show and tell 'em. Furthermore, what do you think of the suggestion for The Birthday Show? Yay or nay? Email.
22:08 In the news this week, Obama picks a supreme court nominee. The RNC (Rush/Newt/Cheney) are spitting chips about her, calling her a "reverse racist" and an "affirmative action pick", The Boys talk about whether they're right, whether a supreme court pick's background actually matters or not, and whether Judge Judy (really!) would be a better nominee.
30:47 Oh blimey, we almost forgot! Pickin' and Grinnin', in which The Boys dissect the week's news with a banjo.
33:07 This Week In Stuff! Paul's squirreled his bald head away to watch Popeye DVDs, wave farewell to his ipod and play with his new Zune, but it's a big Stuff week for Spike with two new podcasts about pirate radio on shortwave; one tremendously dry but informative, and the other - Pirates' Week - fantastically entertaining AND informative. And geeky. This leads on to a discussion about the pros and cons of shortwave radio, what (if anything) there is out there to listen to and if it's worth putting the time and effort into. Also, Apple; do they knowingly overprice their products to create a culture of wants and gots? If you're an Apple Faithful (or a reverse Apple Faithful), we'd love to hear your thoughts. Email The Boys with your insights.
1:11:33 Your input is needed for The Paul And Spike Show Hall Of Fame! What (or whom) would you like to see inducted into the PASS-HOF? And for what reason?
Think you'd be a good guest on the show? The Boys are aiming for a summer of guests, so if you'd like to get in on the action, email the show and let 'em know. Whether you have a specialty, something to plug, or you just want to hang out, you're always welcome. Skype's your best option, but we'd also be happy to call you on the phone to join in, too.

It would be very awesome indeed for you to spread the good word about the show on your blog or your myspace, or your whatever. Click this link, and it will take you to a .txt file, in which resides the raw html code for you to use. Sounds complicated, but it's really not; it's just a cut and paste job, and the html elves do the rest. It will post the fancy-schmancy flash player you see at the top of the screen plus the direct download and the RSS feed. We'd really appreciate your passing the word on!
