The Show: Futile Attempts

Any spare time we had over the Christmas and New year period was spent listening and re-listening to Kim Noble’s “Futile Attempts (at Surviving Tomorrow)” podcast – and we’re still only up to episode 6/10.

If you want a lazy half-arsed comparison think Blue Jam but, arguably, less surreal and, possibly, more mundane (with the added caveat that mundane is completely the wrong word).

Whilst we continue to struggle for the right adjective you can simply judge for yourself using the video sample below and the audio excerpts in today’s show.

High Five Hat

Humanity sucks… We all need encouragement to keep going…so I made this hat.
