We love a bit of tech abuse on this podcast, so it's a real pleasure to bring you James Larsson, mad scientist extraordinaire. James hit the headlines on the BBC news site with his most recent project, Boot Fetish Pong, but old-skool listeners might remember seeing his prawn sandwich BBC micro clock back when Dave and Danny were still a couple, at Notcon 04.
We also read out some of your letters, greet our new listeners, road test Britain's spiciest crisps, and come up with an infallible new business model for the podcast. Roo has a go on a vintage adding machine and, to celebrate the week in which the podcast went nuclear, Leila visits the steamy reactor towers of scenic Dungeness. Just look at the links below. Phew! What a line-up.

Oh, and we were serious about putting limited edition hand made Shift Run Stop episodes on cassette tapes. Buy one now, quick, before you change your mind.
