01:16:30 – Ruben engages in Australia’s democratic process, motorcycle commutes, frigid weather, preferential voting systems, democracy sausages, colour logic behind wheelie bin lids, and a frustrating rail journey into geo-blocked gaming.

23:59 – The third in a short show series documenting my last week as a 20-something! Chatting about rattling Sydney tin can trains, the previous triple digit episode (Rubenerd Show 222 nine years ago), and the oddly specific power board café culture in Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. Was almost 24:00!

10:55 – I found my first attempt at rebooting the Rubénerd Show from January 2013! Topics included time stamp counters, audible tangents, tea, being back in Sydney, and torched coffee shops. Two years later, the show restarted for good with an episode that didn’t abruptly end with a door opening.

21:27 – Clark and Dawe, fronts of tankers falling off, fronts of financial systems falling off, fronts of cars falling off, fronts of moose (mooses? moosii?) falling off, and other related ruminations. This episode would have been longer, but the front fell off.

52:35 – Anyone will tell you it’s a prison island, hidden in the summer for a million years. Happy Australia Day with this discussion of what should be the anthem, Captain Cook, our native peoples, where we all live, cliché Australian tourism advertising, Outback Steakhouse, and humbling flights over the desert. Topped off with a Midnight Citizen-inspired discussion on rapidly fading music and book retail (Coconuts, Borders, Angus & Robertson, Tower Records, HMV in Singapore, the magical late 1990s), and the darn space all those books and DVDs take up. Released late because work has been tough, hope it was worth it!

44:53 – The first episode of 2016! Join Ruben on a stunning morning in Sydney’s Circular Quay as he watches the ferries go past the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Also inexplicable discussion on traffic helicopters, naming anime episodes in Plex, puddled iron in the Eiffel Tower, palm trees, Running Man, Americans who like Vegemite, disappointing San Fran coffee, alternate terms for podcasting, The Rocks precinct, and what’s possibly Australia’s oldest surviving house.
