22nd January 2016 - This week our four hosts Mike, Shaun, Rhi and Sarrah have a chat about the wonders of 3D printing. This includes creating drugs, weapons and vagina canoes.. Now we must warn you, this episode contains adult content and themes- so it may be an idea not to listen with children. 

Find the show on iTunes.
