We resume our lyrical forays into the world of rhyme and reason, exploring the importance of the Internets. Robert Foster casts a critical rhyme over Senator Joe (Lie)berman's proposed bill to shut down the world-wide-web in case of [quotation mark] an emergency [/quotation mark].

But - most importantly - we discuss something else which has been leaking even more profusely than a BP oil well. An organisation of ultra-inspiring infectively-courageous cybernauts - aka Wikileaks - has been taking on the Fistagon and giving that slumbering Fourth Estate a much-needed kick in the arse, reminding us how important the internet is as a tool for open information and for holding corrupt government to account.

What is Wikileaks? Who is Julian Assange? And why is it so important that we know what's happening right now? Find out with your charming host, Robert Foster.

**Episode dedicated to Mama Wolf - happy birthday!**

Written by Giordano Nanni; lyrics and performance by Hugo Farrant. Created by Farrant & Nanni in a back-yard studio in suburban Melbourne, on Wurundjeri Land.
