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.
