Flappy Birds! What Flappy Birds? And other dodgy Apps… | Dirty Boxers Show | Episode 729

It be Monday…

Leigh is joined with Tory today, after a morning of doing more paperwork for the government. He is trying to work out who is actually working for who? Is Leigh his own boss, or is the government? Much confusion is caused. We also get an update concerning the #KillerFloods.

Meanwhile, Callum thought he had come up with a solution to the issue threatening the Dirty Boxers Family currently: PodFund.com. The problem is that the site doesn’t launch until the 3rd March. However, randomly Leigh and Tory come up with a new “winning” idea of creating audio books. Leigh decides to practice…

It be Monday…

How else can we start another week of shows – without having some exciting tech issues! [YAY!] So we spend much, much, MUCH time trying to ignore the obvious flaw in today’s show. Meanwhile, Brian and LoneSQRL call in to help Leigh totally ignore the obvious flaw in the show. Finally we get hold on MrOil who also helps us to ignore the obvious.
