Direct download link: In Vino Veritas Episode 3 LIVE MP3
Wahey, it’s our first live episode! As previewed and reviewed on the In Vino Veritas blog, we trucked down to Melbourne for a weekend of special events with our Victorian skeptical chums. Here is the audio from our live recording at the Clyde Hotel in Carlton.
The show is rude and outrageous, making progress in several areas of ethical research.

There were feathers and elephant shit everywhere. Or something.

From the Wikipedia article Neljä Ruusua:
Neljä Ruusua (Four Roses) is a Finnishrock group formed in the city of Joensuu in 1982. The group consists of guitarist-singer Ilkka Alanko, guitarist Petteri Koistinen, bass guitarist Jari Laakkonen and drummer Kari Kämäräinen. Their style of music was influenced by punk in their earlier years, but changed over the time for conventional finnish rock and more closer for pop music. Most top rated albums of the band are Haloo (1992, Hello) and Pop-uskonto (1993 Pop-religion), wich bought the band to a great popularity.

Corrections and clarifications
DVD audio description is typically aimed more at blind people than the deaf. Experts believe that ‘audio description for the deaf’, a technology posited repeatedly by Dave, would be pretty bloody useless.
