Podcast 50 Show Notes

Show 50 - September 25, 2006
This week's summary

Featuring part two of Richard's report from the 2006 EM Festa and Conference. Richard meets Percy Schmeiser, the man who played David against the Monsanto Corporation's Goliath. Of course, this is real life so Monsanto won... but beating up on a softly spoken 73 year-old Canadian farmer was never going to be more than a Pyrrhic victory. Or so we hope.
Plus Phil is visited by the Boys in Blue (well, one of them was a girl) and Alison has some tips on getting ready for the hedge planting season.
