    Charles Dickens and Chips

    Charles Dickens and Chips

    Was Dickens a better writer than chips are a snack/accompaniment to any number of grateful mains?
    There's certainly been more hot chips by volume than Charles Dicken's books printed, we think.
    Who knows? Sam knows.

    John Lennon and a Coffin

    John Lennon and a Coffin

    The incredible Beatles front man, song writer, activist, artist and, somehow related to a coffin.
    Coffins don't have as many synonyms as John Lennon.
    That's a poor measure of the man. But not untrue. Still a poor measure, he was incredible.

    Austria and Daylight Saving Time (DST)

    That country near Germany with al the composers and a bloody public policy that fades the curtains and confuses the cows.

    Pizza and Jean-Claude Van Damme, Pink & Bill Murray

    Pizza and Jean-Claude Van Damme, Pink & Bill Murray

    So it's Pizza, and the others.
    Don't listen to Glenn and his confusing 2 and 2 or 4 or something else - Pizza and the three people you may or may not have heard of.
    Tricky to get the relationship when there's more involved. Tough at the best of times unless you know!

    Tamworth and Electricity

    Tamworth and Electricity

    The centre of Australian country music and a necessity of modern life.
    NSW country towns definitely have electricity but what could it be that makes the relationship between this notable town and the power we all use daily so special?
    Sam highly recommends checking out the ABC article below.
    It's a great explanation of the link between Tamworth and electricity - but only after hearing the episode!
