003 Podcast remembers Episode 3 from May 29 2005

Podcast talks about the #FakeNews with Aussie Dave in 2005

Includes interviews with Damian Penny and Aussie Dave from Israellycool. What’s somewhat distressing, listening to this back 13 years later is how we find very similar themes to those still being discussed.

Aussie Dave’s interview in particular (around 17 mins in) covers aspects of #FakeNews he was seeing all the way back then.

002 Podcast remembers episode 2 from 25 May 2005

This is the earliest episode of Shire Network News from Thomas Paine that still exists. Show notes have gone but the audio remains. This was first broadcast way back on 25th May, 2005
