Episode 58 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with comic playwrights, comic books, and comic looks at things you ought to know in Episode 58 of Upon Further Review! In this episode we comment on everyone’s, er, comments (and encourage more!) before moving on to the main portion of the show: first, we look at the comic stylings of Oscar Wilde; second, we break down the magic of superhero chic with our review of the New York Comic Con; and finally, we find out more than anyone should know in our review of the What You Ought To Know vidcast. As always, we appreciate your continued feedback, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word far and wide about the show! (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

    […] Upon Further Review » Where two ex-debaters get the last word…on EVERYTH… added an interesting post on Episode 58 of Upon Further Review!Here’s a small excerpt […]

  2. Bernadette in Australia:

    No long diatribes this week. Promise.

    Posting Dr Pepper to Australia will be prohibitively expensive – posting books costs A LOT (usually double the price of the book) and soda cans weigh a tonne. Besides it’s an awful drink and we’re trying to eradicate it from our island :)

    I love Oscar Wilde. So does Stephen Fry and in episode 3 of his podcast he gives a great summation of why Wilde was so fabulous http://www.stephenfry.com/podcasts/. It’s worth a listen (I also love Stephen Fry).

    Now I must go kill myself as I like neither comics nor games and, apparently, have no reason to live.

    Bye.

  3. Tim Byatt:

    Gotta agree with Bernadette about the Dr Pepper but I disagree about the books.

    I regularly get books from amazon.com shipped to Australia and find that with our dollar high it works out a lot cheaper even with the postage (which for a small text book might be 10-15 US dollars). The books have always arrived quickly (about 2-3 weeks) and as promised. One example is an audiology textbook that I bought from Amazon. In Australia it would have been $110 Australian. I bought it on Amazon and it cost about $70 Australian including postage.

    Books are just crazily priced in Australia (particularly the less popular books).

    Great show. It is a big adjustment having a new family member. Just take your time with the show and do it when you can.

    Kind Regards,
    Tim

  4. Bernadette in Australia:

    Tim’s right it is cheap to buy books through Amazon but something tells me their buying power gets them different deals on postage than you would get if you rocked up to the post office, or even Fed Ex, with your case of Dr Pepper. I imagine that would be similar to me when I visit the US and buy dozens of books which I then have to get home. Often I ship a large box of them home and it’s never cost me less than $200. You have no such thing as sea mail or surface mail any more which is why it’s so expensive.

    Great show folks.
