It’s back. The terribly produced podcast you didn’t know you needed. Yup. Fifteen minutes of me pretending to talk to you on the phone, with links and chatter here, to follow up.
Thanks to everyone who emailed in questions to discuss/answer. BRILLIANT. I am going to work through those in the coming weeks “on air” (titter!), so stay tuned for an answer to yours!
Let’s. Get. Started!
Quick NB: My Melbourne accent really DOES have me saying a slight ‘sumpthing’ – and I just can’t help it. Not the much tutted ‘sumpthink’ but a sort of almost ‘something’ with a HINT of a “p”. How interest-p-ing. Also the “tsks” are back, but there are fewer “umms” which is a small improvement, at least.
Okay. Let’s Get. Started! For real this time.
“Show” notes #snort
Here’s what we (and by we, I mean I) chatted about today:
+ More on the Mars One Mission – “It is Mars One’s goal to establish a human settlement on Mars. Human settlement of Mars is the next giant leap for humankind. Exploring the solar system as a united humanity will bring us all closer together.” Erm. I’m not convinced. Maybe being nicer to each other will bring us all closer together. PLUS let’s not wreck another planet, eh? Mars should be ONLY for good people who don’t ruin things. Thanks for this prompt Edie!
+ Scheduling your worries – so radical, it just might work!
+ Leather oven mitts – for that 50 shades of gravy vibe. You’re welcome.
+ A bit more about eating nourishing food and mental health – thanks for the question Reannon.
+ Herbal tea? I’ve got nothing. Help me. Which ones are good?
+ Sewer or sewer? I looked it up and sewer (a person who sews) and sewer (a place where gross things live) are actually HETERONYMS not HOMOPHONES.
So easy to understand. *Insert side-eye* Do you have any favourite heteronyms? Favourite heteronyms are the new favourite song. “We must polish the Polish furniture.” Nods. “Do you know what a buck does to does?” Oh my god shut up. “A seamstress and a sewer fell down into the sewer.” A sad story indeed.
+ Marcella Hazan’s special tomato sauce with butter and one whole onion (and those amazing meatballs I mentioned). Do yourself a favour and make these things. The secret to the sauce is the butter and the secret to the meatballs seems to be all that water. So delish.
+ Zan and Myf’s podcast, called Bang On. This week’s was very funny and now I want to go to Hawaii. Zan talked to me on Twitter last week and now we too are besties. So popular. (Yes I am going to tell you every time someone famous talks to me. I am indeed that insecure.)
Thank you so much for reading and listening! I do so appreciate it and I’m having fun putting this podcast-pretender together i.e. pretending to chat to you on the phone!
PS: Put your thinking caps on because NEXT WEEK we’re going to talk about choosing a proper name for this 15 minutes of chatter. But don’t tell me your ideas now. Wait ’til then.
