Hey there, folks, in terms of weeks, it's been a big one. Here to dissect it all last Wednesday, it's ya mates Ben Pobjie and Cam Smith

Have a sneaky listen to their thoughts on all the up-to-the-minute current affairs business like the Trump plagiarism thing and Erma Bombeck.

There is a bit of an audio glitch about halfway through which does correct itself. You are not crazy if you think, 'this bit sounds slightly different to the other bits' tho.

Hi there, folks, there's just been an election and things have been a little bit surreal. Maybe not as surreal as some other things, but still you'd have to say, "hmm, that's a bit off though."

Ben and Cam are here to hold your hand through it all but. Enjoy!
