After a long stint at the family farm, we're back to discuss pretty much the same stuff we always discussed: Richard Roxburgh, Tony Martin, Gary Sweet, Cameron Ling, Cameron Ling's Mother, Simon Black, Slash, and some guy that Dec's dad clipped on the way into the MCG in 1999. Plus those annoying people who try to sound like they're way busier than they actually are. 

Huge apologies it took so long to get another one out. Thanks for hanging in there.
