Giddy Up Podcast Season 3 Episode 5

A disaster on multiple levels

Sure it can be assumed from the title that the show didn’t quite go to plan but as our regular listeners would know, that’s normal! 

But this show certainly did cover a couple of recent disasters with some incredible footage captured of a plane engine on fire and a cargo ship getting absolutely smashed by a wave. 

We also introduced a new segment with the Health Whisperer, Nant Nissen, joining us each week to share some great health and wellness advice and tips.

And if that isn’t awesome enough, our new sponsor joined us live with a fantastic announcement with a new prize segment!

In this week’s episode:

  • Wacky, Weird & Wonderful –  Plane engine on fire, gender reveal fails, the Buruli Ulcer hits Melbourne, a mutant baby shark you need to see to believe and terrifying footage of a cargo ship being smashed by a wave. 
  • Geek of the Week – Facebook reinstates news and hard not to be excited about the Mars landing with new footage and audio from our nearby planet. 
  • JT’s Pick of the Week –  JT takes a look at stigmatised properties – would you buy a house you knew someone had been murdered in?
  • Discussion time – Coles ditch the single-use plastics and Schapelle Corby is set to ‘star’ in the new Dancing with the Stars. 
  • Tik Tok’s of the Week – A cricket fail or the luckiest thing you’ll see? A Kangaroo starts work at pub and a marriage proposal that didn’t quite go to plan.
