This week, Michael and guest CJ Donnelly discuss why it might not be safe to hide behind the sofa, why exposing kids to risk is the key to education, and whether you’d want to meet the person who provided milk for your dessert. Also, we look at who takes computer based exams, and an odd set of circumstances affecting the price of wheat.

This week, Chris and Michael pretend to be organised, managing to group stories into both a technology section (featuring one child getting into hot water due to downloads and another being traumatised by a Wii game) and a vehicular section (featuring a jump jet for sale and two very different F150s). They also talk about a creepy crawly alternative to chocolate for Valentine’s Day, a man suffering for his art, and yet another cute animal story.

This week, Chris, Michael and guest Rich Wareham discuss a good job to me the possibility for unwanted state gifts getting taken back and passed on to other countries, stories which narrowly avoid actual celebrities, and robotic camel jockies. They also get in a knot about what fundamental measurements depend on others, and round up a bunch of vaguely amusing news stories.
