PODCAST: Episode 4 – In the Nick of time

This week’s episode wasn’t all fun and games as my new business partner, Nick Pederson, came into the studio to make business decisions. Nick and I teamed up to disrupt the huge industry of University Shuttle Bus Timetabling and Nick was so impressed with me during the interview he promised me 100% of profits from our new lucrative app.  When not making big corporate decisions Nick and Jamie discussed their shared love of comedy podcasts. We also explored how Nick’s employment with a not-for-profit company made him revaluate his university studies and career goals. Nick also explains how his parents were accepting of his desires to get into the start-up industry thanks to their past business of squash court ownership. Lastly Nick, a self-confessed modern-pentathlon expert, and I try to come up with an even better and more varied sport for the Olympics.

An open letter to Network 10

Why I believe they should either be taxed more, or engage much more in CSR, if they intend to profit off this season of the Bachelor.

 

Dear Network 10 management,

 

On episode 10 of the Bachelor, I watched as Richie and Alex had a single date based around the idea of ‘chocolate’. Now, for once, I shan’t make it a priority to critique the date or the women or the outfits as per usual. Today, my issue is that of the abuse of chocolate propagated by this bachelor Richie Strahan, by the ditz of a date of his, Alex, and by the colossally lousy asshats producing this show.

 

Why am I calling them lousy asshats today? Because they let this pair of morons waste hundreds of millilitres of chocolate on ‘cutesiness’ and a chocolate bath.

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! :)

Harry Potter & the Cursed Child review

Some spoilers ahead – each with individual warnings, chill

 

Three weeks ago on Friday I practically skipped into Dymocks to grab my copy of the new Harry Potter book, the eighth, an addendum to a series I have adored from my childhood, and will likely continue to love throughout my adulthood and long past the time old age will make me both wrinkly and potty.

I got home, and in the manner of Hermione Granger buried my nose in the book, barely looking up so that I could finish it as quickly as conceivably possible.

Online Employment: A Web of Problems

As a Uni student, I am poor. Though the year began with an acceptable amount of cash in my pocket, currently my account is on the verge of bankruptcy. Nevertheless, I persevered and followed the idea is gaining employment. Searching for a job, it seems, is now interactive. Sites like Job in a Click, Indeed, Jobspot and LinkedIn attempt to aid in job finding online. Companies like Sheridan and Myer only accept applications and resumes online; almost every major company seems to be online now. But still, I had, and still do have, trouble gaining employment.

REVIEW: PREMIERE EPISODE OF THE BACHELOR (S4)

Spoilers (duh!) 

So for those of you who are new to the whole Bachelor (henceforth Bachie) franchise, the show works this way: some ‘lucky guy’, the aforementioned Bachelor, is “looking for love” and, having had some alleged ill-luck in this endeavour, is appearing on a television show to find his “perfect match” or “soul mate” – or whatever title Nicholas Sparks conjures up in his next oh-so-disgusting novel.
