  • Hi guys,

    Thanks for submitting your podcast on AustralianPodcasts.com.au. We’re flattered to have such high profile podcasters as yourselves (being a long-time Sitepoint lurker myself).

    Please drop me a line and let me know how you found out about us.

    Cheers
    Jon

  • I’d write something if I was confident that it was actually going to be read.. hehe

    I will say though, Kevin, I don’t know where in Montreal you were, but there are indeed bars there (or used to be.. this was several years ago) where they have trivia games, with each table playing on a wireless device that they use to enter their answers.

    Now, I wonder if the Beer Store here in Ottawa will sell any of these Australian beers so I can try them (they’ll have Foster’s for sure, and since John liked it so much, maybe it’s not bad)

  • Thanks for the comment, goatee70! Yes, we do read them.

    I’ll have to check out some Canadian-style bar trivia next time I’m in town…
