We love our big statues here in Australia, so the fight over the Biggest Moose between Canada and Norway has us intrigued in our first news story of the week. The search for new species goes on – and 3 new salamander species have been found in Texas. The sad facts behind so called mini pigs are evened, and in the final news story Mark in angry about a cartoon racoon.

Social media, its use and abuse, is our main topic this week. We dive deep into the machinations of setting up and maintaining a website for your practice; discuss reviews of your business – how to get the good ones –  and answer the bad reviews; give ideas for posting on social media sites. A great, practical episode for the inter webs!
