Episode 37 in a series of 1000 sexcasts from your sexy friends Ben Pobjie and Cam Smith.

In this episode, we ruminate on crimes committed just prior to the recording of the podcast and also about the Liberal Party campaign launch, which was also quite recent at time of recording. Also, what would be a better theme for the news AND what actually happens at the end of Cujo? There is election fatigue by the bucketload.

[Some have wondered about the delightful synth noises scattered throughout - these are not incoming emails or other such technological delights, but CENSORSHIPS of alleged crimes allegedly committed. Far more pleasant a tone than a BLEEP, yes?]
