If you need to skip through Emma’s discussion about sex offenders, it runs from 0:45:00 to 1:08:10.

    Alice asked about how to stop headphones from snagging on doors, etc. I’m assuming earbuds? What works wonders for me is running the wire underneath a shirt or jacket behind my back. No snags, the wiree is long enough to carry the device in a front or back pocket. Best part is that if you don’t want them in your ears for a time, you can just drape them over your shoulders and they tend to stay there.

    Bob Mortimer can tear an apple in half. He demonstrated and explained it fairly well on “would I lie to you?”, the panel show. it was season eleven, one of the later shows, I think. — a fan from across the pond.

    As always an intelligent and reasoned contribution from Emma on a subject that often reduces other podcasts to pearl clutching and name calling. Refreshing to hear an informed voice given the opportunity to speak on such an emotionally charged topic.
