Episode 12. Where we try our hand at interviewing Brett James from the Ballarat Hackerspace. Nick over compresses the audio. Dan instigates the colour coded news system. We chat about sharks, watches, a bit of metadata and we play a bunch of louder than normal songs.  We ponder some more kickstarters and yammer about Abbott AND the Labour party!

We’ve hit a dozen episodes. Celebrate by listening while eating eggs.
