David and Russell would like to welcome you to Old News! In each episode we'll be discussing news items from the past, sometimes recent past, sometimes much older. News items that might make people think “I wonder what happened about…?” We’re new to podcasting so constructive feedback is always welcome. Please get in touch with us by using the comments section, using our email oldnewspodcast@gmail.com or Tweet @oldnewspod


We'd like to thank: Music: http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music Peter Kitson for the use of his voice.


Episode 5: Chernobyl

December 8, 2016 @ 12:48 am

For the first time we have a listener suggested subject - the Chernobyl nuclear accident.

Once again, Russell reveals he is skipping the country while David has, surprisingly, not had any DIY related problems. Welsh sheep, the pronunciation of "Bath" and cheesy chains all make unexpected appearances.

We also give a shout out to our friends at The Last Tuesday Project podcast. Give them a listen at www.lasttuesdayproject.com


NOTE: Russell mentions that he can't remember what SCRAM stands for. It could stand for "Safety Control Rods Activation Mechansim", "Safety Control Rods Actuator Mechanism", or the slightly strange "Safety Control Rod Axe Man".
