A deluge of awesome correspondence regarding the health care debate last week

00:00 Oh great - that's not a good way to start the show; Paul spilled something on Spike's sweater. Some good news regarding Old Spike, the end of Paul's ladies' problems and the reason his mom said "OMG". Paul is half of an intellectual, and Spike shares something embarrassing about prostitutes.

07:03 Drinkie Update! Spike's dry (but drunk), and Paul is making up for lost time. The Boys discuss their drunk benchmarks. What are yours? How do you know you've passed the threshold and that you're drunk? Email the show at the usual address and let 'em know.

15:45 After what we in the media call "a tease", it's time for Pickin' And Grinnin'; a wry, meth-tinged look at the week in news. From a trailer. With engine parts in the yard.

17:45 No theme song here, but The Boys have had an intriguing This Week In Stuff. Paul's halfway through "The Catcher In The Rye", and he's been plugging away at the DSi's flickbook-tastic Flip Note Studio, and he's been playing The Dark Spire and Grand Theft Auto Chinatown (doo-dah, doo-dah). Should we be worried? Spike's turned his critical ear towards Big Finish's Dr Who "adventures", and a mystery benefactor sent him something very cool.

38:27 All hail the intelligent, literate and experienced listeners to The Paul And Spike Show! Good for you! As we requested, a full in-box, stuffed with smarts about last week's health care debate! The Boys expand on HD tellys, on armed protesters and the second amendment, and emotions run rampant about the health care systems of three different countries. Want to talk about it further? Got a correction, argument or counter thought? Email it to the usual address!

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!
