I am happy to report that after spending every evening this week wrestling with Audacity I have finally beaten the two separate recording sessions Rebecca and I did months ago into something I’m not embarrassed (not too embarrassed anyway) to release to the general public. That’s right, episode one of Carthago Delenda Est with Rebecca and James is ready to roll!
In case I’ve neglected to explain this before (I can’t be bothered looking it up right now) the podcast is about lost cities and lost civilisations. Each episode we take a look at a particular city or culture, discuss what we know about it, what we don’t know about it, what happened to it, and what (if any) lessons can be drawn from it. The first episode is (appropriately) about Carthage, the north African city state that challenged the Romans and didn’t come off too well…
We’re not going to officially release it as a proper podcast until I’ve edited up a few episodes (we want a bit of a buffer) but we’ve decided to do a pre-release to get some feedback. So check it out and let us know what you think!

So glad you approve, even though we elected not to use your intro ;D
Probably for the best.
This is the longest long-con April Fools I have ever had the pleasure of falling for. Well played, sir. Well played.
Actually it’s a bait and switch double long con, because we are making the podcast – I just realised I could exploit it for an April Fool’s joke along the way.
Of course I could still be lying. I guess you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to be absolutely certain ;D
I’ll wait with bated (and switched) breath!
Ahhh, very clever :). Over here our Lord Mayor wanted to keep daylight saving permanently, but only for one square mile of the CBD. And in Sydney there were Dropbears found in Centennial Park (Complete with badly photoshopped Koala’s)…..
I’m sure I have no idea what you mean ;D
I sound wonderful 😉
