In this week’s action-packed drama of global erudition, your favourite coffeeholics suffer an identity crisis.They also explain how they stop the earth from spinning off its axis and hurling itself into the sun, for which you may send expensive gifts and flowers in gratitude.
In a move designed to infuriate the Cashflow Accountant in the BetterComms Empire, Lee contemplates life as a Doctor. Would YOU ask for ‘Doctor Hopkins’ to be paged in the First Class Lounge at JFK?
Allan, in a deft move to ‘out cool’ him, trumps Lee’s musing with knowledge and insight into the dinner he and several other Copenhagian communicators shared with Eric Schwartzman, of The Spinfluencer and On The Record fame. Much gossip and alcohol were mixed to create a volatile concoction, totally unlike any gathering of PR types that Lee has ever encountered. Except, perhaps, that occasion when the lovely Kami Huyse developed a drinking problem at a meetup at the CommsCafe lighthouse in Second Life…
Bitacle continues to raise Allan’s ire, making one wonder if it would be better to change the environment rather than repeatedly and vainly squash the cockroaches. But will Google and Yahoo! relinquish the $$?
Allan has been reading about value-based fees and Lee shares his experiences on the matter. Lee reckons that he is a Mercedes Benz, whereas Allan is more at home as a Lada or Trabant.
All in all, 26 minutes of caffeine-fuelled hyperbole and satire, which you can either download and listen to right away, or else subscribe to via your rss podcatcher. Our iTunes profile is playing ‘funny buggers’ at the moment, so we are stopping our existing link and setting up a new one. Stay tuned for further developments.
Until next week: take care, take risks, take your kids to the movies.
