The companion piece to the ninth episode of the Totally Buzzed UK Podcast Episode 9 “Let’s Boogie”
Kayleigh and Laura preside over the ninth episode of the Totally Buzzed UK Podcast. The podcast drops every Monday on all-good podcasting platforms and discusses the weird, wonderful, and down-right unbelievable stories that are floating around the web.
The Stories Featured On Episode Nine:
“Autonomous robots check on bad behaviour in Singapore’s heartland”
This story came courtesy of The Straits Time and details how Singapore are trialing a system where autonomous robots are being deployed to discourage undesirable behaviours such as smoking in public areas. The article shows off a picture of one of the robots, weirdly named Xavier, in action as well as a video showcasing the robot’s voice. Kayleigh highlights how the robot reminds her of the robot Johnny 5.
While Kayleigh keeps things light and fluffy, Laura couldn’t help imagine the was the potential start of the evil robot uprise.
“Burst pipe leads to discovery of ring lost 25 years earlier”
Story two was published on UPI.com and covered how a family had been reunited with a 10-cart gold ring that they had lost 25 years earlier. Laura and Kayleigh discuss the items they have lost that they remember, including Laura’s Polly Pockets and golf clubs as well as Kayleigh’s bicycle. Kayleigh then takes a dark turn by turning the segment into her own personal therapy session as she reflects on her mother losing her wedding ring.
Laura also refers to the interview by MedicineHatNews.com that the couple who found the 10-carat ring did.
“Singing Leicestershire plumber lands record deal on job”
The final story of episode 9 of the Totally Buzzed UK Podcast came from the BBC and focused on a plumber who got a record deal after working on a record producer’s bathroom. Kayleigh went into full conspiracy mode as she couldn’t believe the chances of a plumber, who had built his own recording studio, would just happen to work for a record producer. The pair then discuss the usual sob stories you get from singing contests.
Kayleigh then gave her verdict on one of the plumber’s songs and turned into a mini Simon Cowell.
In the ninth edition of this regular segment on the podcast, TikTok Spotlight, Kayleigh highlights a TikTok that she enjoys and believes others would enjoy.
