365 - Moose Statue War!

February 01, 2019


This week’s ENW podcast focuses on one of the more unusual battles raging across the world – which moose statue is the highest? Two towns, one in Canada and one in Norway are in dispute over which giant moose statue is the tallest in the world. The previous holder of the world’s tallest moose statue was located in Moose Jaw Canada, which is a pretty good location for such a monument. After being dethroned as home to the tallest moose statue in the world, the mayor has promised to regain the world title. How will they do this? What happens next?

January 26, 2019


This week’s ENW podcast, the second in January 2019, examines a decree by one North African president who is demanding that his country adopt a unified colour scheme for all its buildings. The idea is simple – to make the country’s homes, offices, schools and factories look more ascetically pleasing. Like many countries around the world Egypt’s buildings have been built in different decades, styles and materials. This has resulted, according to President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, in an uncivilised vista. What colours will the buildings be painted? How will it work?

We kick off 2019, our 8th year of the podcast, with a quirky news event from Munich in southern Germany. One rail commuter, who got fed up with her daily commute being delayed stumbled upon a novel idea – a train delay scarf. Every time her train was late, she knitted a section. At the end of year, she put it up for auction. How long was the scarf? How much money was it sold for?

This week's ENW podcast is the last podcast of 2018! In previous Christmas podcasts we have looked at Christmas music, movies, foods, events, sports and many other connections to the Yuletide season. This year we thought we concentrate on one of the most famous Christmas Carols in the world. Not only does this week mark the 200th anniversary of its first performance but the post-script also has a rather creepy and macabre twist! But don't worry they won't be too scary...we hope!

So, Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays or just be Happy! (PDF)
