It’s been almost another year without an episode of the Shipped High In Transit podcast, but Tom and Steven are back to look into some more myths.
Tom begins this episode by looking into the ‘ISIS hunter’, Abu Azrael, who came to prominence after the 2015 terror attacks in Paris. Reportedly, he has single-handedly killed around 1500 members of the terrorist organisation using not only automated weaponry, but also swords and axes. But is the tale bigger than the man?
In the Quick S.H.I.T.s section Steven presents us with words that describe things that few people realise there are even words for, including tartle, groak, snudge and more. Tom also talks about words and phrases, ones that originate from nautical use but are now used so much in everyday conversation to the point that they have lost their original meaning.
Steven finishes the show by debunking the popular internet story of the disappearance of the Kansas town of Ashley in August 1952 after mysterious phenomena were reported by the town’s populace. Was it supernatural, a series of earthquakes, or something else?
Thank you, again, for downloading this podcast. We hope to bring you episode more regularly in future. If you want to take part in an episode, or have a myth or story to debunk or is unexplainable send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title Shipped High In Transit, comment on our Facebook page or on Twitter @ShippedHigh. Thank you so much for listening.
This week’s show covers topics including Rochester Kino’s presentation of Bladerunner which Tom attended, and was packed to the rafters. Tom also saw Alien Covenant this weekend and tries his best to talk about it without spoiling it.
This talk turns to TV shows as Ant has finished Iron Fist and Tom is continuing with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ant also updates us on the goings on in the current series of Dr Who.
Because the pressures of life are piling up both Ant and Tom has started playing simulators rather than high-octane action games. Tom is playing a Tour de France game and Ant is learning to fly with Microsoft Flight Simulator, which begins an in-depth conversation about how hard it is to fly planes.
The UK did really well in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, but still not good enough to get into the top half of the table.
The UK election trail is being hit hard by all parties, but Ant and Tom shy away from getting too involved in politics, though it’s hard not to talk about Trump firing the head of the FBI. Also: Prepare yourself for a second security hack this week, make sure all your devices’ security software is up to date.
Don’t have nightmares.
