So what did you think about “Mens Health”?

Ok! You’ve had the weekend and a couple of lunchtimes to listen in on our Mens Health episode.

What did you think? Have you got anything to say about it?

Don’t forget, there’s also the Google Evil Episode and the Feedback to comment on if you’ve only just found us.

Is there a new topic you’d like us to get our teeth into?

Get yourself a Microphone, record what you’d like to say, and email, cloud or skype it to us ready for the Feedback recording which should be on Saturday!

Pete & Al start a conversation about men’s health.

EP3 Feedback1


EP3 Feedback1

Our first feedback show, with genuine, real feedback!!

Sorry we’re a bit late, Pete wasn’t able to do the show. So it’s just little old Al holding the fort. Not to worry though! He has the pleasure of contributions from Scott & Jamie to keep him company.

Al mentions www.scroogled.com as a slightly interesting attack at Google

Al also runs down the feedback policy of the show to clarify a few points.

Time to get your Audio In!

You’ve had a few days to listen to the podcast. A little while to think about your attitudes to Google. Did we provoke any thoughts about the Internet monster? Were we wrong about something? Is there an issue about Google we didn’t cover that’s important to you?

All you have to do is skype the “shotofpal” user and leave a message, send us an email with your answer to audio@shotofpal.me.uk , or share an audio file on your cloud service to audio@shotofpal.me.uk.

Don’t worry about editing, we’ll make you sound good by clipping out any ums or ers! Do it! it’s easier and more fun than you’d imagine.
