In this excitement-packed edition of Grumpy Old Communicators you will hear us wax lyrical about such diverse topics as:
- Karen, her baby August, and the scandal she’s created (and if you want to know where the idea for Karen came from, check out Australia’s far less raunchy but equally seductive young lady who is looking for her Mr Right and only has his misplaced jacket to go on; the video is below, as is a link to some thoughts by a superb Aussie media commentator — and no, that’s not Lee, it’s Tim!)
- Twitter follower numbers and a reference to the superb The Twitter Book by Tim O’Reilly and Sarah Milstein

You can, of course, download the conversation right now to your audiophonic weapon of choice.
