The Drop S1.E4 – The Uzhe.

It was a slow day at Radio Monash. I was sitting there playing my music and everybody was going around doing their own thing. It was really slow. But I guess the music made it more fun. Music and books make everything fun, don’t they? Listen to know more!

Also, P.S: the RadMon AGM is on 18th October. Anyone interested fill up the nomination forms available at the radio station, it’s the last day they’re taking nominations. Hope to see you all there! :)

It’s A Rap – 19.08.2016. “Syria, Music, Youtube and more”

Hi guys! This week, Peggie couldn’t make it to her show so Sahana and Sayu took over. Sahana and Sayu were accompanied by Nathan and Mr. Krabs (Yes, that is his name). So, they talked about Youtube, the tragedy in Syria and had some friendly banter. We found out that Mr. Krabs has 250 followers on tumblr (Kudos on that!). We had 2 callers (Yay us!), one of which was a prank caller (someone from our own station at that!). It was a lot of fun! Listen to know more! :)

The Intern Review.

The classic movie starring Robert De Niro as Ben Whittaker, Anne Hathaway as Jules Ostin Rene Russo as Fiona and Anders Holm as Matt is about the challenges for different people in a workplace. Jules Ostin is the owner of a company called “About the Fit”. The online clothing store went from a start-up founded in her kitchen to a 220-employee juggernaut in only eighteen months. Jules’ friend Cameron (Andrew Rannells) puts up a local ad that hires senior interns to work for the company. Ben, who is seventy and a widower, had a hole to fill in his life that couldn’t be filled by anything else other than a decent job. Ben later gets an interview and is assigned to work with Jules, who is somewhat skeptical at first. Initially frozen out by her, Ben slowly wins over co-workers with his likeability and gets into Jules’s good graces. Ben heads to work early one day to unclutter the messy desk in the office which Jules was frustrated by. After work, Ben notices Jules’ chauffeur drinking, convinces the driver to leave and drives Jules home himself, a role he retains in days to come.
