EP 51: Bon anniversaire: Part Deux
Deux, derr, DUH! (Crabb and Sales go all out with their French pronunciation skills). A diverse range of topics are whized through: the Dixie Chicks concert, John Howard as Mark Colvin, books on political intrigue, the S-Town podcast from Alabama plus the art of writing a weekly column. There are plenty of distractions, including rose gold laptops and whether Crabb has left it too late to pick up the kids on time.
