Beam me down, Scotty?
This is being billed as the first podcast from space. I doubt anybody would argue with that.

Meet the press
This has been a long-standing American political programme that is supposed to ask the 'difficult' questions. Judge for yourself with this new podcast.

Aussie Beer advert
A reader sent this in, complaining that local adverts are of a poor standard compared to this. This is certainly fun, but does anybody remember that BA advert of a few years ago?

Unholy matrimony
This site presents you with a series of pictures of what a child of two famous people might look like. For example, Tony Blair and the Terminator. You get to click on one name out of four for each 'parent'. Some of them are surprisingly easy, others are not.

That most famous night
Bulwer-Lytton is the man responsible for 'It was a dark and stormy night'. Thanks to Snoopy, few of us will be able to forget that rather inauspicious beginning. Well, there is now an award to the worst such fiction. This year's winner comes from a company normally accused of other things.
