Gather Around Me
Ben Pobjie and Cam Smith help you make sense of the world.

Guys, the first thing you need to understand when you listen to this is that it was ridiculously hot. Like 40 degrees. Come on.

But what if you are listening to this in the future and that's like a cool day? This won't make any sense.

Anyway, that's why this is a bit of a whingy one on Cam's end, but there is some good stuff in here, I think.

Oh yeah, this is Ep 165 in a series of 1000 with your friends Ben Pobjie and Cam Smith.

ARGH! It's so hot~!!!!
