Repugnant Ideas

Repugnant IdeasWelcome to the second episode of MoshPod

Firstly a big thank you to everyone who listened to our first episode, ‘Mind the Bug’.

In this Episode: Hitler the Great?, Ethics of selling human organs, Cryogenics. Bang, Big Ass Tony and The Governor rave about Hitler, how we will be remembered in 1000 years and the repugnance of human organ sales. Also a great story about when cryogenics goes wrong!. Pods from Hardcore History, Freakanomics, This American Life.

This episode comes with a MASSIVE BAD LANGUAGE WARNING, we are guessing most of you aren’t scared of words but we thought we should mention it.

This was our first group discussion; we had a bit too much fun so if anything sounds like drunken rambling, it probably was. We aim to keep discussion more concise in future pods but this approach is more fun for us so see what happens.

Enjoy the show and let us know what you think, we’ve got thick skins so be honest, feedback will help us deliver an EVEN BETTER podcast for you every fortnight.

P.S. Don’t miss the out takes we added in at the very end of the show. Thanks again Moshpodders, we hope you enjoy.
