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 email@example.com with the title Shipped High In Transit, comment on our Facebook page or on Twitter @ShippedHigh. Thank you so much for listening.
We’re back! In complete contrast to what our listeners want, we decided to go almost 2 months without an episode… we’re hoping that it’s just increased the demand for us!
This time Tom & Jo talk about neighbours, not the Australian soap opera, but the next door variety. They discuss good and bad people to live next to, including their current neighbours – one who might be a ghost and the family next door with the nasty phlegm problems. There are also suspected gangsters, raucous parties and people having too may cars.
Some of you listeners have offered stories of their own of both good neighbours and neighbours from hell!
Feel free to extend the debate with us on our Facebook Page or on Twitter @TheTomAndJoShow. Thank you very much to all who have contributed and interacted so far. Please, keep it up!
