Story: The Disappearing Prime Minister - Australia is a crazy place. It's huge, empty, and full of things that can kill you. And every once in a while one of their Prime Ministers will disappear without a trace. Not figuratively, either.
Guests: Mike Bridavsky, owner / engineer of Russian Recording, member of Memory Map, and LIL BUB's (@IAMLILBUB) human dude. Yes, the same BUB who became a darling to millions as a famous Internet Cat. Bub raises $100k annually, and over a half-million dollars total so far, for charities like Lil Bub's Big Fund for the ASPCA. BUB also delights fans and has lots of fun projects (including the pilot episode of a series Animal Planet canceled for being too weird) at lilbub.com
Cocktail of the Month: Genever. It's not a cocktail. It's an ancestor of gin that lurks in the shadows at well-stocked liquor stores, leading many a gin drinker to wonder what exactly it is. Take my hand. I will explain all.
Question Cathy returns with the mailbag.
