This week on Cult Friction!

2009. What a year its been folks! From gate crashing some major celebrity dos to winning/nominated for awards, from breaking records to meeting the weirdest people on the planet, it has been quite an eventful 12 months for all of us here at the CF team.

So in the time honoured fashion of the show we’ll be taking a retrospective of the goings on of MMIX with our run down of all things cool about 2009 as well as looking at some of the things we hope to happen over the next decade (i.e. flying cars/hoverboards/manned landing on Mars etc)

Also we will be having special guests from the UKULELE SOCIETY OF GOLDSMITHS COLLEGE stopping by for a chat and giving us the occasional musical interlude with their small instruments of musical joy!

We’ll also be giving you our TOP 10 Films and Games of the Year! More bickering and debate to flow like the alcohol through our nerdy veins.

And what programme would be complete without Nerd News, unspun, under researched nonsense from the internet and beyond!

So thats this Monday at 3pm on WiredRadio.co.uk; that’s a streaming webcast for you guys out of the loop.

So all that remains for myself and the gang to wish you happy holidays and bright and prosperous New Year!

From Mark, George, Tom, Hayleigh, Paul and Ruari (who is stuck up north but is a member for life!)

Cult Friction – Macs V PC’s Debate 30.11.09

Posted in Cult Friction THE SHOW with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2009 by cultfriction

This week on Cult Friction!

We are having the ultimate computer debate. We’ve talked about it for quite some time but now its time for settlement. The big question which has plagued nerd kind for the last few years now. Which is better? Macs or PCs?

Is it style over substance for you mac lovers? Or is it reliability and venerability of the PC that does it for you? We’ll be weighing the pros and cons of both so you know what to put on your Christmas list this year! Send us your comments on this most volatile of topics.

And as we come to the end of the decade we take a look at the top films from the years 2000 to 2009. Time to cast your mind back as we go through the decade that saw us voyaging with the fellowship, prequelling with the Jedis and smashing zombies with Shawn.

And as always we’ll be dissecting geeky world events in our Nerd News Round Up!

Remember we want to know what you think about the show so write on the facebook wall, tweet or email your thoughts and suggestions all via our pretty blog @ https://cultfriction.wordpress.com

That’s this Monday 3pm ONLY on htp://wiredradio.co.uk

To infinity,
