Les chaussettes de l'archiduchesse sont-elles sèches, archi-sèches ?
(The socks of the archduchess are they dry, extra dry ?)
Un chasseur sachant chasser sans son chien est un bon chasseur.
(A hunter that can hunt without his dog is a good hunter.)

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.
