This week's show is a tri-guest spectacular with wheels playing into each of the conversations.  First up  I chat with Leesa Barnes who is the media liason for Podcamp Toronto which I will be attending  on Feb. 24, as long as the weather does not stop me.  We talk about the upcoming un-conference and what people will expect to see there.  Then  I have a discussion with a co-worker of mine, Vahen King,  who lives life with her very own set of wheels.  Lastly but not leastly it is off to the movies as Rob and I review the latest Marvel hero to hit the big screen, Ghost Rider, in all of his flaming skull glory.  We talk about the guilty pleasure of seeing Nick Cage's head melt, mentally predict each other's ratings and maybe even spot a movie pirate, me harties.  The song this week is Critical Mass by George Wood and can be found at www.podsafeaudio.com.  As always your comments and suggestions are welcome.

This week is my all movie edition of the podcast.  First up instead of an audio book review I get a good rant on about movie theatre piracy and the proposed idea of delayed major motion pictures by 3 months in Canada to fight it.  Then it is off to the movies with my friend Rob as we give our opinion on Hannibal Rising that opened this past weekend.  We discuss what we learned from the movie, who the audience is for this film and a strange resemblance of a fellow movie goer to a famous serial killer.  Music on the show this week is the song Fallen Angel by DJ Topshelf and can be found at www.podsafeaudio.com.   As always your comments and suggestions are welcome.
