Hi Zoe,
I meant to say, I tried to embed your show on the OL site but couldn't work out how. Maybe upload to Youtube or similar format next time?

Well, I'm happy to be corrected. Is your argument that there's no difference between shock jocks in Melbourne and Sydney? If so, is there a Melbourne equivalent of, say, Alan Jones?

Yeah, I understand that the media companies are the same. But doesn't that make the situation more noticeable? Not claiming to be an expert on these things but the impression I had of the Matt and Jo show (based on listening to them for thirty seconds) is that they were substantially gentler than Kyle and Jackie O. And if Hamish and Andy can be successful in both cities, why can't K and JO? Doesn't that suggest that the really aggressive shock jock thing doesn't travel?

Don't you think it's odd, though, that films -- that are focus-grouped to all fuck -- are more old-fashioned than books?

Misuse stats to make a political point? Moi? :-)
But I do think the argument about Twitter and Iran was very overstated. Only a tiny proportion of the population was using the service and an even tinier proportion was tweeting in English.
