Have we got a special deal for you! It's a special twofer episode! We have two, I repeat TWO dogs we met this week. Allegra met a fat Chihuahua at the dog park and Travis met the puppiest puppy at an appliance store. We're joined by comedian and podcaster Will Weldon about his incredibly quirky dog Lenny! Will sticks around so Allegra can give us a Mutt Minute on Basset Hounds. Renee has not one, but TWO pieces of Cool Dog Tech! Someone had the genius idea to film their weeding using their dog as a camera person. Also, science has invented a camera that is triggered by a dog's heart rate. Mostly, they seem to take pictures of beans a lot. You're really going to get some great bang for your buck on this one folks! Show notes

I've gushed in the past about Chris Morris, the brilliant British satirist whose series "The Day Today" and "Brass Eye" are two of the funniest television shows of the past twenty years. They're news parodies -- a bit like the Daily Show, only even funnier. As in many of the best Daily Show bits, the target is the media, not current events. The team behind the shows devolves jargon into nonsense, sports into mental retardation and drama into absurdity. The result is absolutely amazing.
The Day Today and Brass Eye were preceded by a no-less-brilliant radio program, called On the Hour. It's probably the funniest audio comedy I've ever heard, and now it's available on CD and MP3 for the first time, more than 15 years after it first aired.
