Conspiracy Corner/Fictional Respite #5 – The Pork Board

This week’s “Conspiracy Corner” is just a little different. As I happened to be flying over Australia during the show, I wasn’t in a position to appear in the studio or even phone my performance in.

So, I produced an impromptu play, recorded in my hotel room (with ambient noises recorded both at Auckland Airport and Singapore). It’s a little story about paranoia and the Pork Board.

Because the Pork Board is everywhere and it watches all.

This version of the play is slightly different from the one that was broadcast on bFM – I’ve tidied it up a bit (the original was recorded and edited on a phone).

Fictional Respite #4 – It’s Science, Matey!

I’m away in Singapore for the next few days, giving a talk about our trust in the New Zealand Police Force post the October Raids. So, for reasons completely unrelated to my sojourn overseas, I’m posting to the blog some fiction I wrote five years or so ago. They are short, one page pieces and I hope you enjoy them.
