Podecast 6 - The Wonderful Kererū

Apparently at some point in the last few months I have decided to just stop pronouncing the middle of a lot of words, presumably in order to save time.

(Also WTF is up with the scrappy recording of my voice? I recorded this on my laptop but Scrap is clearer?)

Click the Kererū to access the cast


The Wonderful Kererū appears only once in this Podecast but exemplifies the spirit of both participants, a fat, pompous, ridiculous animal snatching a whole twig from the tree of thought, eating a single flower and then throwing the rest away.


0.07 - VotE
2.38 - Weightlifters with no penises
3.37 - Do you want to talk about pre-history? (We do not do this.)

13.10 - A new place to put adventures.
13.45 - "What's his face? The guy who does Udan-Adan? We'll probably never know his real name."

17.28 - A Ghost in my house.

31.45 - "You're treating those children like subhumans."
33.41 - Scrap is confused by the moral exchange inherent to Government. Sarah Horrocks would probably agree.
38.15 - "If only one culture has reliable deep-water navigation, that culture is effectively playing D&D with the world."
39.45 - Cowboys on Mars.
41.53 - We expand our mentions of Zak to include his sister? Anyway, X-Men school-style Character Gen.
