The Skills of Conversation

The Skills Of Conversation is a self help guide to aid verbal and non-verbal communication in an increasingly technologically obsessed world. Due to the frenetic nature of modern life more and more people lack confidence on how to interact with others and in particular how to converse with as much skill and purpose as possible. This episode looks at a particular technique which can prove very useful in social situations – The Heartburn Pause.

Colombo & Coffee

Columbo and Coffee is the result of when songwriting, tv detective fandom and diy filmmaking collide. The song was written by Douglas and  Milo McLaughlin and came out of a conversation they once had over a beer one Saturday afternoon in Edinburgh. As a result they wrote and recorded a song which is partly about a typical Columbo storyline and part documentation of having nothing better to do than put the kettle on and watch an episode. Shortly after completing the track they made a video which while having no budget was still seen as a worthy yet cost effective tribute to their favourite detective.
