Welcome from Australia

ABC Radio National InterviewMy "morning" Australian Radio Interview

Just wanted to say a quick "Hi" if you've come to the site from listening to this morning's "Life Matters" show on ABC Radio National and Radio Australia (which was actually 11pm last night for me). I must thank the presenter Richard Aedy for being a great interviewer and making me sound far more awake than I was. Also it was refreshing to hear him say "arse" on a breakfast show, and also read the sign about "Passengers standing clear from the edge or they may get sucked off".

When we were talking about public transport being a great leveller, with all sorts of people travelling on it, he told me that Margaret Thatcher once said, that "Any man over the age of 30 who travels on a bus should be considered a failure". More proof, if it was needed, that Thatcher really is a dotty old mare.

Amongst other things, we also rattled on about commuter pigeons (sorry I forgot to mention Brian's blog), buskers, Albanian killer mice and Tube drivers' announcements. If you'd like to listen, visit this page from Life Matters and you'll see the links to download an mp3 podcast or listen to it on RealPlay or Windows Media. It's at 39.32 minutes into the broadcast.

Richard will be looking at other public transport systems from around this world this week, and tomorrow the focus will be on the New York Subway and how many babies have been born on the subway there! Cheers again Richard.
