Ep 139: Christmas special - Santa, sport and out-takes



It's scarcely believable that another Christmas has rolled around! I hope that 2010 has been a wonderful year for you.

In this year's Christmas podcast, I've compiled some of my favourite segments from the last few years. First up, I chat to Bianca Nogrady, who assembled a crack team of health experts to look into the health of Santa Claus. Not only does he eat copious amounts of sugar and drink gallons of beer, he is also at risk of altitude sickness, deep-vein thrombosis, jet-lag, zoonotic diseases from exposure to wild reindeer and countless other problems associated with lack of sleep and poor diet. Not to mention all the concerns associated with smoking. However, he does compile the naughty/nice list each year, keeping his mind active, and unlike many other elderly folk, he gets out of the house and travels. You can read more about the findings of the Santa-team in Bianca's original article Health alert for Christmas visitor, and also at Ep 98: Santa Claus - a fat, diabetic substance abuser?

Next up is a classic out-take from Diffusion Science Radio from the velvet-voiced Matt Clarke discussing the fact that some women are allergic to their partner's semen. You will also hear the laughing of myself, Darren Osborne, Lachlan Whatmore and Tilly Boleyn (and possibly Ian Woolf). These same folk then join me in an interesting, and irreverent, take on some of the mental aspects of cricket. These recordings were originally released in the episode North Koreans, Mammoths, Invisibility and what did not make it to air on the Diffusion Radio Science Show.

Take care this break, and see you in the new year, when my family will have expanded by one!

  3. A visit to a grotto, Christmas show or winter festival is an annual tradition for many families, but if Santa has to wear a mask, the magic can be lost. Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas, St. Nicholas, St. Nick, Chris Kringle, or simply Santa, is a legendary character born in Western Christian culture who is said to play with Christmas toys for well-behaved children. And bring candy gifts, and nothing but coals or naughty kids.

  10. Malti Joshi was born on 4 Jun, 1934 in Aurangabad. She completed her MA in Hindi from Agra University in 1956. She has numerous published stories, children stories and novels to her name. Many of her works have been translated in foreign languages too. Many stories have been presented on radio/ Television. Some of them include the stories included in the TV series “Saat there” produced by Jaya Bachhan and some stories have been part of the TV series “Kirdar” by Gulzaar and “Bhavna”. She has been recognised and awarded by many Hindi and Marathi literary societies. Malti’s stories are heart touching. She says about her stories, “Life’s small sensations and memorable moments, I string together in my stories. These experiences may be mine, or of people close to me, the number and spread of whom is vast. As it is, a writer does not feel about herself alone, most of the joys and sorrows of the world around me, feels like mine, that is the reason most of my stories begin with “I”.”

Male is situated on the southernmost tip of the North Male' Atoll (Kaafu Atoll), directly across from the Maldives International Airport. Male Maldives is a fantastic spot to visit for a short time. It houses many of the country's most important icons and landmarks. Among them, one of the most well-known among visitors is: (Old friday mosque, Stingray point, Fish -market, Artificial beach, Victory monument, Male Square, Museum, Souvenir Street etc...). During peak hours, the streets are very narrow and congested.male city
