...in which we ask you about TV that makes you go 'wow!', guests that make you say 'hey!' and things that make you go 'hmmmm'.
00:00 After a brief drinks update and a thoroughly embarrassing Cincinnati Reds faux pas from the foreigner, The Boys discuss their recent forays into the big cities, inspired by Paul's recent trip home to Cincy.
08:49 Last week's guest - Reuben Perdue of WAJR-FM - left fans of the show (we call y'all "Paul And Spiketeers") hungry for more discussion on Kennedy and on DNA. Some inspired and interesting thoughts ahoy, which is why we love you and why you're the bestest audience in the whole wide world EV-AR. If you want to comment on anything heard on the show - good or bad - let us know at the usual address.
16:54 Pickin' And Grinnin'; the segment of the show that looks at the news through moonshine-tinted glasses, boy howdy.
19:10 This Week In Stuff! Helping you make better media-intake decisions since... um... well, episode one, I suppose. Oh, and they'll also spin THE BIRTHDAY WHEEL!! (not really) Paul's had an interesting week, having gone to see the Reds lose, and is impressed by his Blue-Ray player and a story about barbarians disemboweling people. The Boys wonder just how much more resolution 50 year old movies can have.... Spike's been pouring much adoration on the iPhone/iPod touch application "Wunder Radio" and has been catching up on podcasts. He hated the hosts of How Stuff Works' "The Coolest Stuff In The World" vodcast with a white-hot passion, but loves NewsTalk.ie's output, pining in the process for Scotland's failed talk radio experiment. In the meantime, TWiT's still not getting much Paul-love, but the Nintendo World Report is. Oh, and can you smell the Radio Shack carpet? That'll be the Sky and Telescope podcast.
46:59 Thanks to everyone who contributed to the discussion point this week - inspired by a discussion on one of Spike's favourite geeky hangouts, we asked on Twitter and Facebook, "what was the last TV show you saw that made you say 'wow' - and why?" You responded in your droves, and the results were fascinating!

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!
