Blogcast: Contrast #21 - There's More To Life Than Books

Oops. I almost forgot to post about this. That's what happens when the Contrast podcast-master Tim goes away on holiday and forgets to email you about his remote updates. Tsk. Anyway the theme of this weeks Contrast, number 21, is 'There's More to Life Than Books'. I've contributed something very depressing, but everything else is almost uniformly happy and fantastic, so don't let that put you off. Make sure you go and take a look.
