Wikicast 030 SPECIAL - Wilkins Peak (with Sally Le Page)

April 7, 2018

Sally and Simon are joined by Dan for a bit. Go follow her on the twitter, sometimes she's ok. In this episode the gang talk about taste in films, mountains in Wyoming, Dan's almighty hangover, happy lesbian films, read a fan fiction, try some Welsh, and discuss how to keep on top of uni work. So we stay on topic the whole time, basically.

Note: we haven't forgotten about your correspondence RE: the racist incident at Exeter Uni! As we had a guest this week we thought we'd wait until the next episode to discuss it, so it can be given due attention. There's still time to send your emails in if you're a BME student at a UK uni - please do get in touch.

Wikicast 029 - Permanent Representative of Colombia to the United Nations

March 24, 2018

In this rushed, shitshow of an episode Simon and Dan discuss the racism scandal coming out of Exeter University, an order of knights represented at the UN, and some watching recommendations. Also Simon can't say the word accredited.

Again, massive apologies for the rush this week. Between Dan's schedule and internet problems we just ran out of time. We'll make it up to you next episode!

Wikicast 028 - Mehmed the Conqueror

March 17, 2018

This week we actually talk about the wiki article for a while, and (statistically) incredibly it's an article one of us had actually been on before! Also this week you hear how terrible Simon is at accents, a meta discussion of online `fame', a whole bunch of correspondence, and a new fan fiction! What a banger of an episode.
